esv
Ὑποτασσόμενο ι ἀλλήλοις ἐν φόβῳ Χριστοῦ, *
submitting to one another in the fear of Christ.
αἱ γυναῖκες τοῖς ἰδίοις ἀνδράσιν
Wives, to your own husbands,
ὡς τῷ κυρίῳ,
as (you submit) to the Lord.
comparison
ὅτι ἀνήρ ἐστιν κεφαλὴ τῆς γυναικὸς
( Why should wives submit to their husbands?) For the husband is the head of the wife
ὡς καὶ ὁ Χριστὸς κεφαλὴ τῆς ἐκκλησίας,
even as Christ is the head of the church,
αὐτὸς σωτὴρ τοῦ σώματος•
(Let me explain to you Christ's unique role which frees and gladdens your submission to your husband) he himself is Savior of the body.
ideaexplanation
ἀλλʼ ὡς ἡ ἐκκλησία ὑποτάσσεται τῷ Χριστῷ,
(Having conceded that Christ's role is unique) Now as the church submits to Christ,
οὕτως καὶ αἱ γυναῖκες τοῖς ἀνδράσιν ἐν παντί.
nevertheless wives should submit in everything to their husbands.
bilateral
Οἱ ἄνδρες , ἀγαπᾶτε τὰς γυναῖκας,
Husbands, love your wives,
καθὼς καὶ ὁ Χριστὸς ἠγάπησεν τὴν ἐκκλησίαν
just as Christ loved the church
καὶ ἑαυτὸν παρέδωκεν ὑπὲρ αὐτῆς,
and gave himself up for her,
ἵνα αὐτὴν ἁγιάσῃ
that he might sanctify her,
καθαρίσας τῷ λουτρῷ τοῦ ὕδατος ἐν ῥήματι,
having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word,
actionmanner
ἵνα παραστήσῃ αὐτὸς ἑαυτῷ ἔνδοξον τὴν ἐκκλησίαν,
( The purpose of Christ sancifying and washing his bride was) so that he might present the church to himself in splendor,
μὴ ἔχουσαν σπίλον ἢ ῥυτίδα ἤ τι τῶν τοιούτων,
not having or wrinkle or any such thing,
ἀλλʼ ἵνα ᾖ ἁγία καὶ ἄμωμος .
but that she might be holy and blameless.
negativepositive
actionpurpose
οὕτως ὀφείλουσιν [καὶ] οἱ ἄνδρες ἀγαπᾶν τὰς ἑαυτῶν γυναῖκας
so also ought husbands to love their wives (as seen in vv.25b-27)
ὡς τὰ ἑαυτῶν σώματα.
as their own bodies.
ὁ ἀγαπῶν τὴν ἑαυτοῦ γυναῖκα ἑαυτὸν ἀγαπᾷ .
( In other words ,) He who loves his wife loves himself.
Οὐδεὶς γάρ ποτε τὴν ἑαυτοῦ σάρκα ἐμίσησεν
( Why is it that the one who loves his wife loves himself) For no one ever hated his own flesh,
ἀλλʼ ἐκτρέφει καὶ θάλπει αὐτήν,
but nourishes and cherishes it,
καθὼς καὶ ὁ Χριστὸς τὴν ἐκκλησίαν,
just as Christ does the church,
ὅτι μέλη ἐσμὲν τοῦ σώματος αὐτοῦ.
( Unity/Oneness with Christ is why Christ nourishes and cherishes the Church) because we are members of his body.
ground
ἀντὶ τούτου καταλείψει ἄνθρωπος [τὸν] πατέρα καὶ [τὴν] μητέρα καὶ προσκολληθήσεται πρὸς τὴν γυναῖκα αὐτοῦ, καὶ ἔσονται οἱ δύο εἰς σάρκα μίαν.
(The reality of oneness in marrige has been the goal of marriage since the beginning. Here is a proof-text :) “Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh.”
inference
τὸ μυστήριον τοῦτο μέγα ἐστίν• ἐγὼ δὲ λέγω εἰς Χριστὸν καὶ εἰς τὴν ἐκκλησίαν.
( Let me get explicit about what is truly going on between a husband and wife) This mystery is profound, and I am saying that it refers to Christ and the church.
πλὴν καὶ ὑμεῖς οἱ καθʼ ἕνα, ἕκαστος τὴν ἑαυτοῦ γυναῖκα οὕτως ἀγαπάτω ὡς ἑαυτόν, ἡ δὲ γυνὴ ἵνα φοβῆται τὸν ἄνδρα.
However ( Don't get caught up in the man and woman being "one flesh", as if the husband and wife don't have unique roles. Rather...), let each one of you love his wife as himself, and the wife in order to fear her husband.
