5:31 For this cause shall a man leave father and mother/ and shall continue with hys wyfe/ and two shalbe made one flesshe. For this cause shall a man leave father and mother/ and shall cōtinue with his wyfe/ and two shalbe made one flesshe. For this cause shall a man leaue father and mother/ and shall continue with his wyfe/ & two shalbe made one flesshe. For this cause shal a man leaue father and mother, and cleue vnto his wife, and they two shal be one flesh:
5:32 This is a grett secrete/ but I speake bitwene Christ and the cōgregacion. This is a great secrete/ but I speake bitwene Christ and the cōgregacion. This is a great secrete/ but I speake bitwene Christ and the congregacion. This is a greate secrete: but I speake of Christ and the congregacion.
5:33 Neverthelesse do ye so that every one off you love hys wyfe truely even as hym sylfe: And lett the wyfe se that she feare her husbande. Neverthelesse do ye so that every one of you love his wyfe truely even as him silfe. And let ye wyfe se that she feare her husbāde. Neuerthelesse do ye so that euery one of you loue his wyfe truely euen as him selfe. And let the wyfe se that she feare her husbande. Neuertheles do ye so, that euery one of you loue his wife euen as himselfe: but let the wife feare hir hussbande.
