1 Peter 3:1 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

Likewise (ὁμοίως)

Rev., in like manner; better, because likewise in popular speech has, wrongly, the sense of also. Peter means in like manner with servants (1 Peter 2:18).

Be in subjection (ὑποτασσόμεναι)

Lit., being in subjection, or submitting yourselves; the same word which is used of the submission of servants (1 Peter 2:18).

Be won (κερδηθήσονται)

Rev., be gained. The word used by Christ, Matthew 18:15 : "gained thy brother."
