Rules for Christian Households
18 Wives, be subject to your husbands, as is fitting in the Lord.
18. unto your own husbands—The oldest manuscripts omit "own," which crept in from Eph 5:22.
as it is fit in the Lord—Greek, "was fit," implying that there was at Colosse some degree of failure in fulfilling this duty, "as it was your duty to have done as disciples of the Lord."
