I Peter 3:7: A Husband’s Duty

Husband, love your wife,
And dwell with understanding.
With her spend your life,
With knowledge undemanding.

Honor give your wife,
And waste no time in getting.
Getting gives you strife,
You’re honored – God permitting.

Honor! give her gifts,
Security providing,
Praise, esteem, uplift,
Take heed to her advising.

Weaker though she be,
Know she will co-inherit
Grace, eternity,
Thus your respect she merits.

Together you must pray,
Your strife is interrupting.
Uncherished she will fade,
Your selfishness corrupting.

Marriage God ordained,
So, dwell, give honor, praying.
Unity obtained,
When we will start obeying.
