Ajuda para Casais
So it becometh husbands to love their wives, as their own bodies. For he who his wife loveth, himself he loveth.
For no man ever hated his own body, but nourisheth it, and taketh care of it; so also the Meshiha (taketh care) of the church.
4 LOVE is patient and benign; love envieth not; love is not tumultuous, nor inflated;
5 it acteth not with unseemliness, nor seeketh its own; it is not angry, nor thoughtful of evil;
6 it rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth.
7 It endureth every thing, believeth every thing; it hopeth all, endureth all.
But those who have wives I command, yet not I, but my Lord, that the wife from her husband separate not.
Yet, if she separate, let her remain without a man, or unto her husband be reconciled. And let not a man put away his wife.
Be angry and sin not, and let not the sun set upon your wrath,
and give no place to the accuser.
WIVES, be subject to your husbands, as it is right in the Meshiha.
Men, love your wives, and be not bitter against them.
WHEREFORE let lying cease from you, and speak the truth every man with his neighbour: for we are members one of another.
Wherefore they were not two, but one body. That, therefore, which Aloha hath conjoined, man shall not separate.
Husbands, love your wives, as also the Meshiha loved his church, and gave himself for her,
Nevertheless let every one of you so love his wife as his own self; but let the wife reverence her husband.
Honourable is marriage among all, and their bed is undefiled; but whoremongers and adulterers Aloha judgeth.
And do nothing in contention or vainglorying, but in meekness of mind let a man consider his neighbour as better than himself.
And let no one care for himself (only), but every one for his neighbour also.
and with all these charity, which is the girdle of perfection.
And let the peace of the Meshiha direct your hearts, for to it you have been called in one body; and give thanks to the Meshiha,
Wear, therefore, as the chosen of Aloha, saints and beloved, compassions and tenderness, and benignity, and lowliness of mind, and composure, and patience.
And bear with one another, and forgive one another, if any man have a complaint against his neighbour; even as the Meshiha hath forgiven you, so also forgive;
And beware, lest any of you evil render for evil; but always follow after (those things which are) good (pl.) toward one another, and toward every man.
And before every thing have ardent love for one another; for love covereth a multitude of sins.
3 And let a man render the love that is due unto his wife;
4 so also the wife to her husband. For the wife hath not authority over her body, but the husband; so also the man hath not authority over his body, but his wife.
5 Defraud not then one the other, unless you both agree for a time, that you may humble yourselves by fasting and by prayer; and return again unto the same will, that Satana may not tempt you on account of the desire of your bodies.
Let all bitterness, and heat, and anger, and clamour, and scandal be taken from you, with all malice;
and be gentle one with another, and affectionate, and forgive one another, even as Aloha in the Meshiha hath forgiven us.
Let no hateful word come out of your mouth, but that which is comely and useful for edification, that it may communicate grace to those who hear.
