“Even as Sara obeyed Abraham, calling him lord: whose daughters ye are, as long as ye do well, and are not afraid with any amazement.”
King James Version (KJV)
3:6 Whose children ye are - In a spiritual as well as natural sense, and entitled to the same inheritance, while ye discharge your conjugal duties, not out of fear, but for conscience' sake. #Gen 18:12|.
1Pe 3:6 As Sarah obeyed Abraham, calling him lord. See Ge 18:12. See also 1Sa 1:15. This designation showed respect and submission. Whose daughters ye are. Women should follow the example of Sarah, who might be designated as "the mother of those who are Abraham's children by faith". As long as ye do well, and are not afraid with any amazement. "Are not put in fear by any terror" (Revised Version). The fear might result from not doing well. They were to be quiet, submissive, loving wives, but were not to be kept from Christian duty by "any fear" which might threaten because of their heathen surroundings.
