1 Peter 3:7

Greek/English Interlinear with Strong’s Numbers


King James Version

Likewise, ye husbands, dwell with them according to knowledge, giving honour unto the wife, as unto the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the grace of life; that your prayers be not hindered.
New King James Version

Likewise you husbands, dwell with them with understanding, giving honor to the wife, as to the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the grace of life, that your prayers may not be hindered.
New American Standard Bible

You husbands likewise, live with your wives in an understanding way, as with a weaker vessel. Since she is a woman; and grant her honor as a fellow heir of the grace of life, so that your prayers may not be hindered.
New International Version

Husbands, in the same way be considerate as you live with your wives, and treat them with respect as the weaker partner and as heirs with you of the gracious gift of life, so that nothing will hinder your prayers.
The Amplified Bible

In the same way you married men should live considerately with [your wives], with an intelligent recognition [of the marriage relation], honoring the woman as [physically] the weaker, but [realizing that you] are joint heirs of the grace (God’s unmerited favor) of life, in order that your prayers may not be hindered and cut off. [Otherwise you cannot pray effectively.]
Wuest’s Expanded Translation

Husbands, in like manner, let your home life with them be governed by the dictates of knowledge, they being the weaker instrument, the feminine, holding in reserve for them particularly honor as to those who are also fellow-inheritors with you of the grace of life, and this, in order that no [Satanic] inroads be made into your prayers.
Phillips’ Modern English

Similar, you husbands should try to understand the wives you live with, honouring them as physically weaker yet equally heirs with you of the grace of life. If you don’t do this, you will find it impossible to pray together properly.
Williams’ Language of the People

You married men, in the same way, must live with your wives in an intelligent consideration of them; you must show them deference, too, as the weaker sex, as they share with you the gracious gift of life, so that your prayers may not be hindered.
