1 Peter 3:7 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

[a]Likewise ye husbands, [b]dwell with them as men of [c]knowledge, [d]giving [e]honor unto the woman, as unto the weaker [f]vessel, [g]even as they which are heirs together of the [h]grace of life, [i]that your prayers be not interrupted.


  1. 1 Peter 3:7 He teacheth husbands also their duties, to wit, that the more understanding and wisdom they have, the more wisely and circumspectly they behave themselves.
  2. 1 Peter 3:7 Do all the duties of wedlock.
  3. 1 Peter 3:7 The more wisdom the husband hath, the more circumspectly he must behave himself in bearing those commodities, which through the woman’s weakness ofttimes cause trouble both to the husband and the wife.
  4. 1 Peter 3:7 The second argument, because the wife notwithstanding that she is weaker by nature than the man, is an excellent instrument of the man made to far most excellent uses: whereupon it followeth that she is not therefore to be neglected because she is weak, but on the contrary part she ought to be so much the more cared for.
  5. 1 Peter 3:7 Having an honest care of her.
  6. 1 Peter 3:7 The woman is called a vessel after the manner of the Hebrews, because the husband useth her as his fellow and helper to live faithfully before God.
  7. 1 Peter 3:7 The third argument: for that they are equal in that which is the chiefest (that is to say, in the benefit of eternal life) which otherwise are unequal as touching the governance and conversation at home, and therefore they are not to be despised although they be weak.
  8. 1 Peter 3:7 Of that gracious and free benefit whereby we have everlasting life given us.
  9. 1 Peter 3:7 The fourth argument: All brawlings and chidings must be eschewed, because they hinder prayers and the whole service of God whereunto both the husband and wife are equally called.
