After addressing the wives, Peter turns his attention to the husbands. He calls them to treat their wives with honor and understanding, "that your prayers may not be hindered."

We then proceed to the general principle highlighted by Peter: all of us must live righteously and show kindness to our brothers if we expect the Lord to hear our prayers.
