The life of the saints
therefore you were 2araised
together with Christ, seek the things which are 3above
, where Christ is, sitting at the bright
hand of God.
Set your amind
on the things which are above, not on the 1things
which are on the earth.
For you 1adied
, and your 2life
with Christ in God.
, then you also will be manifested with Him in cglory
The constituents of the new man
to death therefore your 2bmembers
which are on the earth: fornication, uncleanness, passion, evil desire, and cgreediness
, which is idolatry;
Because of which things the awrath
of God is coming upon the bsons
In which you also once walked, when you lived in these things.
But now, you also, put away all these
things: wrath, anger, malice, blasphemy, afoul
abusive language out of your mouth.
Do not alie
to one another, since you have 1bput
off the 2cold
man with his practices
And have 1aput
on the 2bnew
man, which is being 3crenewed
unto full knowledge according to the 4dimage
of Him 5who ecreated
and uncircumcision, 5cbarbarian
man, but 9dChrist
and in 10all
A living in union with Christ
The arbitrating peace of Christ
on therefore, as God's achosen
and beloved, binward
parts of compassion, kindness, lowliness, meekness, long-suffering;
Bearing one another and aforgiving 1one
another, if anyone should have a complaint against anyone; even as the 2Lord
forgave you, so also should
And over all these things put on 1alove
, which is the uniting bond of 2perfectness
And let the 1apeace
of Christ 2arbitrate
in your hearts, to 3which 4also
you were called in bone
Body; and be 5cthankful
The indwelling word of Christ
Let the 1aword
of Christ 2bdwell
in you 3richly 4in
all wisdom, 5teaching
and admonishing 6one
another with 7cpsalms and
hymns and dspiritual
in your hearts to God.
And whatever you do in word or in deed, do
all things in the 1name
of the Lord Jesus, giving athanks
to God the Father through Him.
The expression of Christ in ethical relationships
, be subject to your husbands, as is fitting in the Lord.
Husbands, love your wives and do not be bitter against them.
Children, obey your parents in all things, for this is well pleasing in the Lord.
Fathers, do not vex your children, that they may not be disheartened.
Slaves, obey in all things those who are your masters according to the flesh, not with eye-service as men-pleasers, but in singleness of heart fearing the Lord.
Whatever you do, work from the soul as to the Lord and not to men,
Knowing that from the Lord you will receive the 1inheritance
. You 2serve
the Lord Christ.
For he who does unrighteously will areceive
what he unrighteously did, and there is no brespect
