 USCCB - NAB - 1 Peter 3
[1-6] The typical marital virtues of women of the ancient world, obedience, reverence, and chastity (1 Peter 3:1-2), are outlined here by the author, who gives them an entirely new motivation: Christian wives are to be virtuous so that they may be instrumental in the conversion of their husbands.
In imitation of holy women in the past (1 Peter 3:5) they are to cultivate the interior life (1 Peter 3:4) instead of excessive concern with their appearance (1 Peter 3:3).
[13-22] This exposition, centering on 1 Peter 3:17, runs as follows: by his suffering and death Christ the righteous one saved the unrighteous (1 Peter 3:18); by his resurrection he received new life in the spirit, which he communicates to believers through the baptismal bath that cleanses their consciences from sin.
