Colossians 3:18 References
a Ephesians 5:22-33, Ephesians 6:1-9
23 For athe husband is the head of the wife, as Christ also is the bhead of the church, He Himself cbeing the Savior of the body.
24 But as the church is subject to Christ, so also the wives ought to be to their husbands in everything.
27 that He might apresent to Himself the church in all her glory, having no spot or wrinkle or any such thing; but that she would be bholy and blameless.
28 So husbands ought also to alove their own wives as their own bodies. He who loves his own wife loves himself;
29 for no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as Christ also does the church,
31 aFOR THIS REASON A MAN SHALL LEAVE HIS FATHER AND MOTHER AND SHALL BE JOINED TO HIS WIFE, AND THE TWO SHALL BECOME ONE FLESH.
32 This mystery is great; but I am speaking with reference to Christ and the church.
33 Nevertheless, each individual among you also is to alove his own wife even as himself, and the wife must see to it that she brespects her husband.
3 SO THAT IT MAY BE WELL WITH YOU, AND THAT YOU MAY LIVE LONG ON THE EARTH.
4 aFathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but bbring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.
5 aSlaves, be obedient to those who are your masters according to the flesh, with bfear and trembling, in the sincerity of your heart, cas to Christ;
6 anot by way of eyeservice, as bmen-pleasers, but as cslaves of Christ, ddoing the will of God from the heart.
8 aknowing that bwhatever good thing each one does, this he will receive back from the Lord, cwhether slave or free.
