- Music: [ On | Off ]
- *I*, the prisoner in [the] Lord, exhort you therefore to walk worthy of the calling wherewith ye have been called,
- with all lowliness and meekness, with long-suffering, bearing with one another in love;
- using diligence to keep the unity of the Spirit in the uniting bond of peace.
- [There is] one body and one Spirit, as ye have been also called in one hope of your calling;
- one Lord, one faith, one baptism;
- one God and Father of all, who is over all, and through all, and in us all.
- But to each one of us has been given grace according to the measure of the gift of the Christ.
- Wherefore he says, Having ascended up on high, he has led captivity captive, and has given gifts to men.
- But that he ascended, what is it but that he also descended into the lower parts of the earth?
- He that descended is the same who has also ascended up above all the heavens, that he might fill all things;
- and *he* has given some apostles, and some prophets, and some evangelists, and some shepherds and teachers,
- for the perfecting of the saints; with a view to [the] work of [the] ministry, with a view to the edifying of the body of Christ;
- until we all arrive at the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, at [the] full-grown man, at [the] measure of the stature of the fulness of the Christ;
- in order that we may be no longer babes, tossed and carried about by every wind of *that* teaching [which is] in the sleight of men, in unprincipled cunning with a view to systematized error;
- but, holding the truth in love, we may grow up to him in all things, who is the head, the Christ:
- from whom the whole body, fitted together, and connected by every joint of supply, according to [the] working in [its] measure of each one part, works for itself the increase of the body to its self-building up in love.
- This I say therefore, and testify in [the] Lord, that ye should no longer walk as [the rest of] the nations walk in [the] vanity of their mind,
- being darkened in understanding, estranged from the life of God by reason of the ignorance which is in them, by reason of the hardness of their hearts,
- who having cast off all feeling, have given themselves up to lasciviousness, to work all uncleanness with greedy unsatisfied lust.
- But *ye* have not thus learnt the Christ,
- if ye have heard him and been instructed in him according as [the] truth is in Jesus;
- [namely] your having put off according to the former conversation the old man which corrupts itself according to the deceitful lusts;
- and being renewed in the spirit of your mind;
- and [your] having put on the new man, which according to God is created in truthful righteousness and holiness.
- Wherefore, having put off falsehood, speak truth every one with his neighbour, because we are members one of another.
- Be angry, and do not sin; let not the sun set upon your wrath,
- neither give room for the devil.
- Let the stealer steal no more, but rather let him toil, working what is honest with [his] hands, that he may have to distribute to him that has need.
- Let no corrupt word go out of your mouth, but if [there be] any good one for needful edification, that it may give grace to those that hear [it].
- And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, with which ye have been sealed for [the] day of redemption.
- Let all bitterness, and heat of passion, and wrath, and clamour, and injurious language, be removed from you, with all malice;
- and be to one another kind, compassionate, forgiving one another, so as God also in Christ has forgiven you.
- Be ye therefore imitators of God, as beloved children,
- and walk in love, even as the Christ loved us, and delivered himself up for us, an offering and sacrifice to God for a sweet-smelling savour.
- But fornication and all uncleanness or unbridled lust, let it not be even named among you, as it becomes saints;
- and filthiness and foolish talking, or jesting, which are not convenient; but rather thanksgiving.
- For this ye are [well] informed of, knowing that no fornicator, or unclean person, or person of unbridled lust, who is an idolater, has inheritance in the kingdom of the Christ and God.
- Let no one deceive you with vain words, for on account of these things the wrath of God comes upon the sons of disobedience.
- Be not ye therefore fellow-partakers with them;
- for ye were once darkness, but now light in [the] Lord; walk as children of light,
- (for the fruit of the light [is] in all goodness and righteousness and truth,)
- proving what is agreeable to the Lord;
- and do not have fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather also reprove [them],
- for the things that are done by them in secret it is shameful even to say.
- But all things having their true character exposed by the light are made manifest; for that which makes everything manifest is light.
- Wherefore he says, Wake up, [thou] that sleepest, and arise up from among the dead, and the Christ shall shine upon thee.
- See therefore how ye walk carefully, not as unwise but as wise,
- redeeming the time, because the days are evil.
- For this reason be not foolish, but understanding what [is] the will of the Lord.
- And be not drunk with wine, in which is debauchery; but be filled with the Spirit,
- speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and chanting with your heart to the Lord;
- giving thanks at all times for all things to him [who is] God and [the] Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ,
- submitting yourselves to one another in [the] fear of Christ.
- Wives, [submit yourselves] to your own husbands, as to the Lord,
- for a husband is head of the wife, as also the Christ [is] head of the assembly. *He* [is] Saviour of the body.
- But even as the assembly is subjected to the Christ, so also wives to their own husbands in everything.
- Husbands, love your own wives, even as the Christ also loved the assembly, and has delivered himself up for it,
- in order that he might sanctify it, purifying [it] by the washing of water by [the] word,
- that *he* might present the assembly to himself glorious, having no spot, or wrinkle, or any of such things; but that it might be holy and blameless.
- So ought men also to love their own wives as their own bodies: he that loves his own wife loves himself.
- For no one has ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, even as also the Christ the assembly:
- for we are members of his body; [we are of his flesh, and of his bones.]
- Because of this a man shall leave his father and mother, and shall be united to his wife, and the two shall be one flesh.
- This mystery is great, but *I* speak as to Christ, and as to the assembly.
- But *ye* also, every one of you, let each so love his own wife as himself; but as to the wife [I speak] that she may fear the husband.
- Children, obey your parents in [the] Lord, for this is just.
- Honour thy father and thy mother, which is the first commandment with a promise,
- that it may be well with thee, and that thou mayest be long-lived on the earth.
- And [ye] fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but bring them up in [the] discipline and admonition of [the] Lord.
- Bondmen, obey masters according to flesh, with fear and trembling, in simplicity of your heart as to the Christ;
- not with eye-service as men-pleasers; but as bondmen of Christ, doing the will of God from [the] soul,
- serving with good will as to the Lord, and not to men;
- knowing that whatever good each shall do, this he shall receive of [the] Lord, whether bond or free.
- And, masters, do the same things towards them, giving up threatening, knowing that both their and your Master is in heaven, and there is no acceptance of persons with him.
- For the rest, brethren, be strong in [the] Lord, and in the might of his strength.
- Put on the panoply of God, that ye may be able to stand against the artifices of the devil:
- because our struggle is not against blood and flesh, but against principalities, against authorities, against the universal lords of this darkness, against spiritual [power] of wickedness in the heavenlies.
- For this reason take [to you] the panoply of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and, having accomplished all things, to stand.
- Stand therefore, having girt about your loins with truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness,
- and shod your feet with [the] preparation of the glad tidings of peace:
- besides all [these], having taken the shield of faith with which ye will be able to quench all the inflamed darts of the wicked one.
- Have also the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is God's word;
- praying at all seasons, with all prayer and supplication in [the] Spirit, and watching unto this very thing with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints;
- and for me in order that utterance may be given to me in [the] opening of my mouth to make known with boldness the mystery of the glad tidings,
- for which I am an ambassador [bound] with a chain, that I may be bold in it as I ought to speak.
- But in order that *ye* also may know what concerns me, how I am getting on, Tychicus, the beloved brother and faithful minister in [the] Lord, shall make all things known to you;
- whom I have sent to you for this very thing, that ye may know of our affairs and that he may encourage your hearts.
- Peace to the brethren, and love with faith, from God [the] Father and [the] Lord Jesus Christ.
- Grace with all them that love our Lord Jesus Christ in incorruption.
