“For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church:”
King James Version (KJV)
5:29 His own flesh - That is, himself. Nourisheth and cherisheth - That is, feeds and clothes it.
Eph 5:29 No man ever yet hated his own flesh. Or his own body. Yet, wife and husband are "one flesh" (Eph 5:31).
