(The following is from DAVID GUZIK COMMENTARY ON THE BIBLE)

(1 Peter 3:5-6) .

For in this manner, in former times, the holy women who trusted in God also adorned themselves, being submissive to their own husbands, as Sarah obeyed Abraham, calling him lord, whose daughters you are if you do good and are not afraid with any terror.

a. In former times, the holy women who trusted in God also adorned themselves: Peter reminds women that he doesn’t call them to a new standard, but something that was practiced by holy women of former times.

b. Who trusted in God: When women submit to their husbands, and when the do not put trust in their outward adornment, they are like the holy women of former times who trusted in God. They powerfully demonstrate their faith.

A woman can trust her ability to influence and control her husband, or she can trust God and be submissive. A woman can trust her outward adornment, or she can trust God and cultivate a gentle and quiet spirit. It all comes back to trust in God, so she should be like the holy women who trusted in God.
