1 2 3 4
1 If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which
are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God.
2 Set your
affection on things above, not on things on the earth.
3 For ye are
dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God.
4 When Christ, who
is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory.
5 Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth;
fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and
covetousness, which is idolatry:
6 For which things sake the wrath
of God cometh on the children of disobedience:
7 In the which ye also
walked some time, when ye lived in them.
8 But now ye also put off all these; anger, wrath, malice,
blasphemy, filthy communication out of your mouth.
9 Lie not one to
another, seeing that ye have put off the old man with his deeds;
have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of
him that created him:
11 Where there is neither Greek nor Jew,
circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond nor free: but
Christ is all, and in all.
12 Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved,
bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering;
one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any:
even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye.
14 And above all
these things put on charity, which is the bond of perfectness.
let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one
body; and be ye thankful.
16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you
richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns
and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.
whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus,
giving thanks to God and the Father by him.
18 Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as it
is fit in the Lord.
19 Husbands, love your wives, and be not
bitter against them.
20 Children, obey your parents in all
things: for this is well pleasing unto the Lord.
21 Fathers, provoke
not your children to anger, lest they be discouraged.
obey in all things your masters according to the flesh; not with
eyeservice, as menpleasers; but in singleness of heart, fearing God:
whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men;
that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve
the Lord Christ.
25 But he that doeth wrong shall receive for the
wrong which he hath done: and there is no respect of persons.
