1:29Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,
1:30Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,
1:31Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:
1:32Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.
6:9Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,
6:10Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.
6:11And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.
5:19Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,
5:20Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,
5:21Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.
3:1If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God.
3:2Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.
3:3For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God.
3:4When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory.
3:5Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry:
3:6For which things' sake the wrath of God cometh on the children of disobedience:
3:7In the which ye also walked some time, when ye lived in them.
3:8But now ye also put off all these; anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy communication out of your mouth.
3:9Lie not one to another, seeing that ye have put off the old man with his deeds;
3:10And have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him:
3:11Where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond nor free: but Christ is all, and in all.
3:12Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering;
3:13Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye.
3:14And above all these things put on charity, which is the bond of perfectness.
3:15And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful.
3:16Let 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.
3:17And 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.
3:18Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as it is fit in the Lord.
3:19Husbands, love your wives, and be not bitter against them.
3:20Children, obey your parents in all things: for this is well pleasing unto the Lord.
3:21Fathers, provoke not your children to anger, lest they be discouraged.
3:22Servants, obey in all things your masters according to the flesh; not with eyeservice, as menpleasers; but in singleness of heart, fearing God:
3:23And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men;
3:24Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ.
3:25But he that doeth wrong shall receive for the wrong which he hath done: and there is no respect of persons.
4:1I therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you that ye walk worthy of the vocation wherewith ye are called,
4:2With all lowliness and meekness, with longsuffering, forbearing one another in love;
4:3Endeavouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.
4:4There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling;
4:5One Lord, one faith, one baptism,
4:6One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.
4:7But unto every one of us is given grace according to the measure of the gift of Christ.
4:8Wherefore he saith, When he ascended up on high, he led captivity captive, and gave gifts unto men.
4:9(Now that he ascended, what is it but that he also descended first into the lower parts of the earth?
4:10He that descended is the same also that ascended up far above all heavens, that he might fill all things.)
4:11And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers;
4:12For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:
4:13Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ:
4:14That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive;
4:15But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ:
4:16From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love.
4:17This I say therefore, and testify in the Lord, that ye henceforth walk not as other Gentiles walk, in the vanity of their mind,
4:18Having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart:
4:19Who being past feeling have given themselves over unto lasciviousness, to work all uncleanness with greediness.
4:20But ye have not so learned Christ;
4:21If so be that ye have heard him, and have been taught by him, as the truth is in Jesus:
4:22That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts;
4:23And be renewed in the spirit of your mind;
4:24And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.
4:25Wherefore putting away lying, speak every man truth with his neighbour: for we are members one of another.
4:26Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath:
4:27Neither give place to the devil.
4:28Let him that stole steal no more: but rather let him labour, working with his hands the thing which is good, that he may have to give to him that needeth.
4:29Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers.
4:30And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption.
4:31Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice:
4:32And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you.
5:1Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children;
5:2And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweetsmelling savour.
5:3But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named among you, as becometh saints;
5:4Neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor jesting, which are not convenient: but rather giving of thanks.
5:5For this ye know, that no whoremonger, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, hath any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God.
5:6Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience.
5:7Be not ye therefore partakers with them.
5:8For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light:
5:9(For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth;)
5:10Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord.
5:11And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.
5:12For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret.
5:13But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the light: for whatsoever doth make manifest is light.
5:14Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light.
5:15See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise,
5:16Redeeming the time, because the days are evil.
5:17Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is.
5:18And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit;
5:19Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord;
5:20Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ;
5:21Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God.
5:22Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord.
5:23For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body.
5:24Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing.
5:25Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;
5:26That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word,
5:27That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.
5:28So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself.
5:29For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church:
5:30For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones.
5:31For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh.
5:32This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church.
5:33Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and the wife see that she reverence her husband.
12:1I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.
12:2And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
12:3For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.
12:4For as we have many members in one body, and all members have not the same office:
12:5So we, being many, are one body in Christ, and every one members one of another.
12:6Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, whether prophecy, let us prophesy according to the proportion of faith;
12:7Or ministry, let us wait on our ministering: or he that teacheth, on teaching;
12:8Or he that exhorteth, on exhortation: he that giveth, let him do it with simplicity; he that ruleth, with diligence; he that sheweth mercy, with cheerfulness.
12:9Let love be without dissimulation. Abhor that which is evil; cleave to that which is good.
12:10Be kindly affectioned one to another with brotherly love; in honour preferring one another;
12:11Not slothful in business; fervent in spirit; serving the Lord;
12:12Rejoicing in hope; patient in tribulation; continuing instant in prayer;
12:13Distributing to the necessity of saints; given to hospitality.
12:14Bless them which persecute you: bless, and curse not.
12:15Rejoice with them that do rejoice, and weep with them that weep.
12:16Be of the same mind one toward another. Mind not high things, but condescend to men of low estate. Be not wise in your own conceits.
12:17Recompense to no man evil for evil. Provide things honest in the sight of all men.
12:18If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men.
12:19Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.
12:20Therefore if thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him drink: for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire on his head.
12:21Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.
14:1Him that is weak in the faith receive ye, but not to doubtful disputations.
14:2For one believeth that he may eat all things: another, who is weak, eateth herbs.
14:3Let not him that eateth despise him that eateth not; and let not him which eateth not judge him that eateth: for God hath received him.
14:4Who art thou that judgest another man's servant? to his own master he standeth or falleth. Yea, he shall be holden up: for God is able to make him stand.
14:5One man esteemeth one day above another: another esteemeth every day alike. Let every man be fully persuaded in his own mind.
14:6He that regardeth the day, regardeth it unto the Lord; and he that regardeth not the day, to the Lord he doth not regard it. He that eateth, eateth to the Lord, for he giveth God thanks; and he that eateth not, to the Lord he eateth not, and giveth God thanks.
14:7For none of us liveth to himself, and no man dieth to himself.
14:8For whether we live, we live unto the Lord; and whether we die, we die unto the Lord: whether we live therefore, or die, we are the Lord's.
14:9For to this end Christ both died, and rose, and revived, that he might be Lord both of the dead and living.
14:10But why dost thou judge thy brother? or why dost thou set at nought thy brother? for we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ.
14:11For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God.
14:12So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God.
14:13Let us not therefore judge one another any more: but judge this rather, that no man put a stumblingblock or an occasion to fall in his brother's way.
14:14I know, and am persuaded by the Lord Jesus, that there is nothing unclean of itself: but to him that esteemeth any thing to be unclean, to him it is unclean.
14:15But if thy brother be grieved with thy meat, now walkest thou not charitably. Destroy not him with thy meat, for whom Christ died.
14:16Let not then your good be evil spoken of:
14:17For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost.
14:18For he that in these things serveth Christ is acceptable to God, and approved of men.
14:19Let us therefore follow after the things which make for peace, and things wherewith one may edify another.
14:20For meat destroy not the work of God. All things indeed are pure; but it is evil for that man who eateth with offence.
14:21It is good neither to eat flesh, nor to drink wine, nor any thing whereby thy brother stumbleth, or is offended, or is made weak.
14:22Hast thou faith? have it to thyself before God. Happy is he that condemneth not himself in that thing which he alloweth.
14:23And he that doubteth is damned if he eat, because he eateth not of faith: for whatsoever is not of faith is sin.
