2 and also some women who had been healed of evil spirits and infirmities: Mary, called Magdalene, from whom seven demons had come out,
3 and Joanna the wife of Chuza, Herod's steward, and Susanna, and many others who provided for them out of their means.

4 so they can train the young women to love their husbands and children,
5 to be sensible, pure, workers at home, kind, being subject to their own husbands, so that the word of God will not be dishonored.

You wives, in the same way be submissive to your husbands so that, if any of them do not believe the word, they may be won over without a word by the behavior of their wives,
