1 Peter 3:1-2

Context
Wives and Husbands

3:1 In the same way, wives, be subject to your own husbands. Then, 1  even if some are disobedient to the word, they will be won over without a word by the way you live, 2  3:2 when they see your pure and reverent conduct. 3 

1 tn Grk “that…they may be won over,” showing the purpose of “being subject” (vs. 1b). Because of the length and complexity of the Greek sentence, a new sentence was started here in the translation.

2 tn Grk “by the wives’ behavior.”

3 tn Grk “behavior,” the same word translated “the way you live” in vs. 1.
