Incorruptible beauty


Here is a beauty that never decays, as the outward body does.  “Gentle” is actually “meek or humble” and “quiet” describes the character of her (a wife’s) action and reaction to her husband and life in general.  Such is precious not only to her husband,  but also to God.

Commentary from the MacArthur study Bible, notes for 1 Peter 3:4.
