From Textus Receptus

  • 1 You therefore be followers of God as dear children.
  • 2 And walk in love, as Christ also has loved us and given Himself for us, an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet smelling aroma.
  • 3 But fornication and all uncleanness or covetousness, let it not even be named among you, as is fitting for saints;
  • 4 neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor coarse jesting, which are not fitting, but rather giving of thanks.
  • 5 Because, you know this; that no fornicator, unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God.
  • 6 Let no one deceive you with vain words, for because of these things the wrath of God comes upon the children of disobedience.
  • 7 Therefore do not be partakers with them.
  • 8 Because, you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light
  • 9 (because, the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness, righteousness, and truth),
  • 10 finding out what is acceptable to the Lord.
  • 11 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.
  • 12 Because, it is shameful even to speak of those things which are done by them in secret.
  • 13 But all things that are exposed are made manifest by the light, because whatever makes manifest is light.
  • 14 Therefore He says: “Awake, you who sleep, arise from the dead, and Christ will give you light.”
  • 15 See then that you walk circumspectly, not as fools but as wise,
  • 16 redeeming the time, because the days are evil.
  • 17 Therefore do not be unwise, but understand what the will of the Lord is.
  • 18 And do not be drunk with wine, in which is dissipation; but be filled with the Spirit,
  • 19 speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord,
  • 20 giving thanks always for all things to God, even the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ,
  • 21 submitting yourselves to one another in the reverence of God.
  • 22 Wives, submit yourselves to your own husbands, as to the Lord.
  • 23 Because, the husband is the head of the wife, just as Christ is head of the church; and He is the Savior of the body.
  • 24 Therefore, just as the church is subject to Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in everything.
  • 25 Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself for her,
  • 26 that He might sanctify and cleanse her with the washing of water by the word,
  • 27 that He might present her to Himself a glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing, but that she should be holy and without blemish.
  • 28 So husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies; he who loves his wife loves himself.
  • 29 Because, no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as the Lord does the church.
  • 30 Because, we are members of His body, of His flesh and of His bones.
  • 31 “For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and will be joined to his wife, and the two will become one flesh.”
  • 32 This is a great mystery, but I speak concerning Christ and the church.
  • 33 Nevertheless let each one of you in particular so love his own wife just as himself, and let the wife see that she reverence her husband.
