1Peter 3:1 Likewise, you wives, be in subjection to your own husbands; that, if any obey not the word, they also may without the word be won by the conversation.(word 'conversation' is old English for 'conduct').of the wives;

1Peter 3:2 While they behold your chaste conversation coupled with fear.

1Peter 3:3 Whose adorning let it not be that outward adorning of plaiting the hair and of wearing of gold or of putting on of apparel;

1Peter 3:4 But let it be the hidden person of the heart, in that which is not being corruptible.(because it's spirit, it never decays, grows old and dies; the more of the spirit {?} you have, the more this is true for you), even the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price..(1Peter 3:4)

1Peter 3:6 Even as Sara obeyed Abraham, calling him lord, whose daughters you are, as long as you do well and are not afraid with any amazement,

Don't allow yourself to be brought into any fear or cause of alarm; that is, doing well in life involves avoiding those things that would cause you to live in dread, example, screwing around while not wanting to loose your present partner; cheating another in some way, etc. Don't add more negatives to your life's journey.

1Peter 3:7 Likewise, you husbands, dwell with them according to knowledge, giving honour unto the wife.(realize she is also a spirit, a vessel to be filled with the spirit of the Infinite One:.Ephesians 5:18 "...be filled with the Spirit."), as unto the weaker vessel and as being heirs together of the grace of life; that your prayers be not hindered.

1Peter 3:8 Finally, be you all of one mind, having compassion one of another, love as brethren, be pitiful.(tenderhearted), be courteous.(original 'friendly'. 'kind', 'sincere friend').

1Peter 3:9 Not rendering evil for evil or railing for railing.(arguing back and forth), but contrariwise blessing.(be a blessing to others); knowing that you are thereunto called, that you should inherit a blessing.

1Peter 3:10 For he that will love life and see good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil and his lips that they speak no guile.

Proverbs 25:8; James 3:7,8

1Peter 3:11.(from Psalms 34:14).Let him eschew evil and do good. Let him seek peace.(Psalms 37:11).and ensue.(original implies 'to run swiftly in order to catch something, to run after, 'to press on', 'pursue').it.

"The battle of evil is the battle of turning away from it..(*)".Dieter Hausler, Bruno Groening Circle of Friends.

1Peter 3:12 For the eyes of the Lord are over the righteous and his ears are open unto their prayers. But the face of the Lord is against them that do evil.

1Peter 3:13 And who is he that will harm.(make evil affect).you, if you be followers of that which is good?.(Luke 10:19 "...nothing shall by any means hurt you."; also, from verse 15 below."...sanctify the Lord God in your hearts"; if you avoid having negative thoughts, then they can't come into your experience, why?)

1Peter 3:14 But and if you suffer.(on word 'suffer').for righteousness sake, happy are you. And be not afraid of their terror, neither be troubled.(why?);

1Peter 3:15 But sanctify the Lord.God in your hearts and.be ready always to give an answer to every man that asks.you.a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear.

1Peter 3:15 But sanctify the Lord.God in your hearts.(always be aware that you are of God and that divine protection is all around you).and be ready always to give an answer.(2Timothy 2:23-26).to every man that.asks.you.(if they don't ask, they are comfortable with where they are, so respect where they are and leave them alone:.Proverbs 26:17; everything is God and unfolding as it should in the universe; the energy of the universal intelligence is acting through the experience of the person in front of you there, no matter how bad he or she may be, that is, this is where that person is right now in their life; we are only here to love others, to pray for them, to think well of them {Philippians 2:3} by seeing that the same energy animating you is also in them, it's just that they aren't as yet connected with the Soul through their soul; any change must come from within them; Creator.is.in charge of all and we are here for the purpose we were put here); praying for others includes loving your enemies {Matthew 5:44; Luke 6:27,35}.a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear..(James 3:13)

1Peter 3:16 Having a good conscience.(one can't have a good conscience when he or she is often striving with others:.Proverbs 25:8); that, whereas they speak evil of you, as of evildoers, they may be ashamed that falsely accuse your good conversation.(word 'conversation' is old English for 'conduct').in Christ.

1Peter 3:17 For it is better, if the will of God be so, that you suffer.(on word 'suffer').for well doing, than for evil doing.

1Peter 3:18 For Christ also has once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened.(means 'made alive'; the resurrection).by the Spirit,

1Peter 3:19 By which also he.(Christ; verse above).went and preached unto the spirits in prison.(?);.(Ephesians 4:9)

1Peter 3:20 Which sometime were disobedient when once the longsuffering of God waited in the days of Noah while the ark was a preparing wherein few, that is, eight souls were saved.(original for word 'saved' is 'escaped').by water..(comprised with.Adam Clarke's Commentary:.the inhabitants of the antediluvian world were disobedient by flagrant.transgressions against God, but were allowed by God's patience, one hundred and twenty years to awaken, that time here represented as being in prison, while the Spirit of God did strive with, convict and reprove the antediluvians {Genesis 6:3,11,17} by showing another way, a way of a higher consciousness than what they were used to living; those before the flood had ample.opportunity to change due to the many prompts that came daily to their minds as they saw this ark being prepared amongst the wickedness of the general population; it was by this Spirit that Noah was inspired and became by his example, the examples of his family {included the way they were with others in their interactions with them}, a preacher of righteousness and thus condemning the direction that ungodly low consciousness world was continuing on with:.Hebrews 11:7; 2Peter 2:5)

1Peter 3:21 The like figure whereunto even baptism does also now save us, not the putting away of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God, by the resurrection of Emmanuel the Christ.

1Peter 3:21 The like figure.(water).whereunto.(toward what end {purpose}).even baptism doth.(does).also now save us.(Barnes New Testament Notes:."baptism corresponded to or had a resemblance to the water by which Noah was saved"), not the putting away of the filth of the flesh.(baptism is an outward ceremony of washing by water of the physical body and thus has really nothing to do with cleaning up the heart contaminated with sin; the heart is the important thing here), but the answer of a good conscience toward God.(now we know we're ok in the Creator's eyes), by the resurrection of Emmanuel the Christ.

1Peter 3:22 Who is gone into heaven and is on the right hand of God, angels and authorities and powers being made subject unto him.
