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 ye 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) Ephe. 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.
