The KJV Bible With Strong's References:

1 Peter 3

3:1   Likewise, ye wives, be in subjection to your own husbands; that, if any obey not the word, they also may without the word be won by the conversation of the wives;
3:2  While they behold your chaste conversation coupled with fear.
3:3   Whose adorning let it not be that outward adorning of plaiting the hair, and of wearing of gold, or of putting on of apparel;
3:4   But let it be the hidden man of the heart, in that which is not corruptible, even the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price.
3:5   For after this manner in the old time the holy women also, who trusted in God, adorned themselves, being in subjection unto their own husbands:
3:6  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.
3:7   Likewise, ye husbands, dwell with them according to knowledge, giving honour unto the wife, as unto the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the grace of life; that your prayers be not hindered.
3:8   Finally *, be ye all of one mind, having compassion one of another, love as brethren, be pitiful, be courteous:
3:9   Not rendering evil for evil, or railing for railing: but contrariwise blessing; knowing that ye are thereunto *  called, that ye should inherit a blessing.
3:10   For he that will love life, and see good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips that they speak no guile:
3:11  Let him eschew *  evil, and do good; let him seek peace, and ensue it.
3:12   For the eyes of the Lord are over the righteous, and his ears are open unto their prayers: but the face of the Lord is against them that do evil.
3:13   And who is he that will harm you, if ye be followers of that which is good?
3:14   But and if ye suffer for righteousness' sake, happy are ye: and be not afraid of their terror, neither be troubled;
3:15   But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear:
3:16   Having a good conscience; that, whereas they speak evil of you, as of evildoers, they may be ashamed that falsely accuse your good conversation in Christ.
3:17   For it is better, if the will of God be so, that ye suffer for well doing, than for evil doing.
3:18   For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death *  in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit:
3:19   By which also he went and preached unto the spirits in prison;
3:20  Which sometime were disobedient, when once the longsuffering of God waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was a preparing, wherein *  few, that is, eight souls were saved by water.
3:21  The like figure whereunto even baptism doth also now save us *  (not the putting away of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God,) by the resurrection of Jesus Christ:
3:22   Who is gone into heaven, and is on the right hand of God; angels and authorities and powers being made subject unto him.
