5:22 你们作妻子的，当顺服自己的丈夫，如同顺服主；Wives, submit to your husbands as to the Lord.
5:23 因为丈夫是妻子的头，如同基督是教会的头；他又是教会全体的救主。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.
5:24 教会怎样顺服基督，妻子也要怎样凡事顺服丈夫。Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit to their husbands in everything.
5:25 你们作丈夫的，要爱你们的妻子；正如基督爱教会，为教会舍己，Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her
5:26 要用水藉着道把教会洗净，成为圣洁， to make her holy, cleansing her by the washing with water through the word,
5:27 可以献给自己，作个荣耀的教会，毫无玷污、皱纹等类的病，乃是圣洁没有瑕疵的。and to present her to himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless.
5:28 丈夫也当照样爱妻子，如同爱自己的身子；爱妻子便是爱自己了。In this same way, husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself.
5:29 从来没有人恨恶自己的身子，总是保养顾惜，正象基督待教会一样，After all, no one ever hated his own body, but he feeds and cares for it, just as Christ does the church–
5:30 因我们是他身上的肢体(有古卷在此有“就是他的骨他的肉”)。for we are members of his body.
5:31 为这个缘故，人要离开父母，与妻子连合，二人成为一体。 “For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh.”
5:32 这是极大的奥秘，但我是指着基督和教会说的。This is a profound mystery–but I am talking about Christ and the church.
5:33 然而你们各人都当爱妻子，如同爱自己一样。妻子也当敬重她的丈夫。However, each one of you also must love his wife as he loves himself, and the wife must respect her husband.
