    Likewise, ye wives, be in subjection to your own husbands; that, if any obey not the word, they also may without the word be won by the conversation of the wives;

    World English Bible

    In the same way, wives, be in subjection to your own husbands; so that, even if any don't obey the Word, they may be won by the behavior of their wives without a word;

    Douay-Rheims - 1 Peter 3:1

    In like manner also let wives be subject to their husbands: that if any believe not the word, they may be won without the word, by the conversation of the wives.

    Webster's Bible Translation

    Likewise, ye wives, be in subjection to your own husbands; that, if any obey not the word, they also may without the word be won by the deportment of the wives;

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 3:1

    ¶ Asimismo vosotras, mujeres, sed sujetas a vuestros maridos; para que tambin los que no creen a la Palabra, sean ganados sin palabra por la conversacin de sus mujeres,

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Peter 3:1

    Verse 1. Ye
    wives, be in subjection] Consider that your husband is, by God's appointment, the head and ruler of the house; do not, therefore, attempt to usurp his government; for even though he obey not the word - is not a believer in the Christian doctrine, his rule is not thereby impaired; for Christianity never alters civil relations: and your affectionate, obedient conduct will be the most likely means of convincing him of the truth of the doctrine which you have received.

    Without the word] That your holy conduct may be the means of begetting in them a reverence for Christianity, the preaching of which they will not hear. See the notes on 1 Cor. xiv. 34, and the other places referred to in the margin.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 1. Likewise, ye wives, be in subjection to your own husbands , etc.] As well as subjects to princes, and servants to masters; though not with the same sort of subjection, but what is suitable to the relation they stand in to their husbands; (see Gill on Ephesians 5:22). (See Gill on Colossians 3:18). that if any obey not the word ; any husband who is an unbeliever, has no love for the Gospel, and gives no credit to it, but despises, disbelieves, and rejects it, the word of truth, of faith, of righteousness, reconciliation, and salvation. The apostle, though he includes all wives, and exhorts them in general to subjection to their own husbands, yet has a particular regard to such as had unbelieving husbands, and who, on that account, were scrupulous of living with them, and of being in subjection to them; and therefore, as the Apostle Paul also did, he advises them to abide with them, and behave well to them, using much the same argument as he does in ( 1 Corinthians 7:10,13,16). they also may without the word be won by the conversation of the wives ; for though the ordinary way and means of conversion is the word, faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word; yet it may be sometimes done without it; or however by the agreeable conversation of professors, and so of religious wives, the hearts of such as were averse to Christianity, and the Gospel, as unbelieving husbands, may be so softened, and wrought upon, as to entertain a better opinion of it, and in process of time be inclined to hear and attend it; the consequence of which may prove their conversion, which is a gaming, or winning of souls; and which, as it is for their good, is for the glory of Christ; for as every soul that is delivered from the power of darkness, and is translated into the kingdom of Christ, is a loss to Satan, it is a gain to Christ, and to his church. The Syriac version, instead of without the word, reads, without labour; as if the winning of unbelieving husbands was easily obtained by the conversation of their wives.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1-7 - The
    wife must discharge her duty to her own husband, though he obey no the word. We daily see how narrowly evil men watch the ways and live of professors of religion. Putting on of apparel is not forbidden, but vanity and costliness in ornament. Religious people should take car that all their behaviour answers to their profession. But how few know the right measure and bounds of those two necessaries of life, food an raiment! Unless poverty is our carver, and cuts us short, there is scarcely any one who does not desire something beyond what is good for us. Far more are beholden to the lowliness of their state, than the lowliness of their mind; and many will not be so bounded, but lavis their time and money upon trifles. The apostle directs Christia females to put on something not corruptible, that beautifies the soul even the graces of God's Holy Spirit. A true Christian's chief car lies in right ordering his own spirit. This will do more to fix the affections, and excite the esteem of a husband, than studied ornament or fashionable apparel, attended by a froward and quarrelsome temper Christians ought to do their duty to one another, from a willing mind and in obedience to the command of God. Wives should be subject to their husbands, not from dread and amazement, but from desire to d well, and please God. The husband's duty to the wife implies giving du respect unto her, and maintaining her authority, protecting her, an placing trust in her. They are heirs together of all the blessings of this life and that which is to come, and should live peaceably one with another. Prayer sweetens their converse. And it is not enough that the pray with the family, but husband and wife together by themselves, an with their children. Those who are acquainted with prayer, find suc unspeakable sweetness in it, that they will not be hindered therein That you may pray much, live holily; and that you may live holily, by much in prayer.

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    1. Likewise (omoiwv). Rev., in like manner; better, because likewise in
    popular speech has, wrongly, the sense of also. Peter means in like manner with servants (ch. ii. 18).

    Be in subjection (upotassomenai). Lit., being in subjection, or submitting yourselves; the same word which is used of the submission of servants (ch. ii. 18).

    Be won (kerdhqhsontai). Rev., be gained. The word used by Christ, Matt. xviii. 15: "gained thy brother."
