LL ye which be married, or which intend to take the holy estate

of Matrimony upon you, hear what holy Scripture doth say, as touching the duty of husbands toward their wives, and wives toward their husbands.

Saint Paul, (in his Epistle to the Ephesians, the fifth chapter), doth give this commandment to all married men ;

Ye husbands, love your wives, even as Christ loved the Church, and hath given himself for it, to sanctify it, purging it in the fountain of water, through 'the word ; that he might make it unto himself a glorious congregation, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and blameless. So men are bound to love their own wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his own wife, loveth himself: for never did any man hate his own flesh, but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord doth the congregation ; for we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones. For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh. This mystery is great; but I speak of Christ and of the congregation. Nevertheless, let every one of you so love his own wife, even as himself.

6 Ye husbands, love your wives, even as Christ loved the church; and hath given himself for it, to sanctify it, &c. The remainder of this Exhortation in (1604) as it corresponds to that of (1559) except in two places marked in the notes, is to be read according to the Liturgy of [1559)

thy word (1552)

1604 S. L. Likewise, the same Saint Paul, writing to the Colossians, speaketh thus to all men that 'are married ; Husbands, love your wives, and be not bitter against them.

Hear also what Saint Peter, the Apostle of Christ, who was himself a married man, saith unto ? them that are married: Ye husbands, dwell with your wives according to knowledge; giving honour unto the wife, as unto the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the grace of life, that your prayers be not hindered.

Hitherto ye have heard the duty of the husband toward the wife. Now likewise, ye wives, hear and learn your duties 3 toward your husbands, even as it is plainly set forth in holy scripture.

Saint Paul, in the aforenamed Epistle to the Ephesians, teacheth you thus : Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the Church ; and he is the Saviour of the body, Therefore as the Church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing. And again he saith, “Let the wife see that she reverence her husband.

And in his Epistle to the Colossians, Saint Paul giveth you this short Jesson, * Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as it is fit in the Lord.

Saint Peter also doth instruct you very well, thus saying : 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; while they behold your chaste conversation coupled with fear. Whose adorning, let it not be that outward adorning of plaiting the hair, and of wearing of gold, or of putting on of apparel ; but let it be the hidden man of the heart, in that which is not corruptible; even the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price. For after this manner in the old time the holy women also, who trusted in God, adorned themselves, being in subjection unto their own husbands ; even as Sarah obeyed Abraham, calling him Lord; whose daughters ye are as long as ye do well, and are not afraid with any amazement.

1549 Likewise the same Saint Paul, (writing to the Colossians) speaketh thus to all men that be married: Ye men, love your wives, and be not bitter unto them.

Coloss. iij. Hear also what Saint Peter, the Apostle of Christ, which was himself a married man, saith unto all men that are married : Ye husbands, dwell with your wives according to knowledge. Giving honour unto the wife, as unto the weaker vessel, and as heirs together of the grace of life, so that your prayers be not hindered. 1 Pet.

iij. Hitherto have heard the duty of the husband toward the wife. Now likewise, ye wives, hear and learn your ’duty 8 toward your husbands, even as it is plainly set forth in holy Scripture.

Saint Paul (in the forenamed Epistle to the Ephesians) Eplıc. v. teacheth you thus; Ye women, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord. For the husband is the wife's head, even as Christ is the head of the Church. And 'he is also the saviour of the whole body. Therefore as the Church or congregation is subject unto Christ, so likewise let the wives also be in subjection to their own husbands in all things. And again he saith, Let the wife reverence her husband. And (in his Epistle to the Colossians) Saint Paul giveth Coloss. iij. you

this short lesson ; Ye wives submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as it is convenient in the Lord.

Saint Peter also doth instruct you very godly, thus saying; 1 Pet. iij. Let wives be subject to their own husbands : so that, if any obey not the word, they may be won without the word by the conversation of the wives; while they behold your chaste conversation coupled with fear. Whose apparel, let it not be outward, with braided hair, and trimming about with gold, either in putting on of gorgeous apparel; but let the hid man, which is in the heart, be without all corruption ; so that the spirit be mild and quiet, which is a precious thing in the sight of God.

For after this manner (in the old time) did the holy women which trusted in God apparel themselves; being subject to their own husbands; as Sara obeyed Abraham, calling him Lord; whose daughters ye are made, doing well, and to being not dismayed with any fear. The new muried persons (the same day of their marriage ) must receire the holy
