also loved the church, and gave

sanctify and cleanse it with the
washing of water by 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. So ought men to love
their wives as their own bodies.

concerning Christ and the church.
Nevertheless let everyone of you
in particular so love his wife
even as himself; and the wife see
that she reverence her husband.
