Page 45 - Wives, submit to your husbands as to the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body, of which he is the Savior.
Page 46 - So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself. For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church: for we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones.

Page 46 - For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife, and they shall be two in one flesh. This is a great sacrament; but I speak in Christ and in the church
Page 179 - She will render him good and not evil, all the days of her life. She hath sought wool and flax, and hath wrought by the counsel of her hands. She is like the merchant's ship, she bringeth her bread from afar.
Page 46 - Christ also loved the Church, and delivered himself up for it : that he might sanctify it, cleansing it by the laver of water in the word of life ; that he might present it to himself a glorious Church not having spot or wrinkle, nor any such thing, but that it should be holy and without blemish.
Page 46 - Christ also loved the Church and delivered Himself up for it: that He might sanctify it having cleansed it by the washing of water with the Word; that He might present it to Himself a glorious Church, not having spot or wrinkle, or any such thing, but that it should be holy and without blemish.
