Eph. 4:17‑32• 17This then I say and testify in [the] Lord that ye should no longer walk even as also the rest of the nations walk in vanity of their mind,
18being darkened in the understanding, estranged from the life of God on account of the ignorance that is in them, on account of the hardening of their heart,
19who, as being past remorse, have given themselves up to lasciviousness unto [the] working of every uncleanness with greediness.
20But ye have not thus learnt the Christ,
21if indeed ye have heard him and been taught in him even as [the] truth is in Jesus,
22that ye should put off, according to your former conversation, the old man that is corrupt according to the lusts of deceit,
23and be renewed in the spirit of your mind,
24and put on the new man, that according to God was created in righteousness and holiness of truth.
25Wherefore having put off falsehood, speak truth each with his neighbour, for we are members one of another.
26Be angry and sin not: let not the sun set upon your wrath,
27nor yet give room for the devil.
28Let him that stealeth steal no longer but rather labour, working what is good with his own hands, that he may have to distribute to him that hath need.
29Let no corrupt word proceed out of your mouth, but if [there be] any one good for edification of the need, that it may give grace to those that hear.
30And grieve not the holy Spirit of God by whom ye were sealed for redemption-day.
31Let all bitterness and passion and wrath and clamour and evil-speaking be removed from you with all malice;

Eph. 5:1‑25• 1Be therefore imitators of God, as beloved children, and walk in love,
2even as the Christ also loved us and gave himself up for us, an offering and sacrifice to God for an odour of sweet smell.
3But fornication and all uncleanness or covetousness, let it not be even named among you, even as becometh saints;
4and filthiness and foolish talking or jesting, which are not becoming, but rather thanksgiving.
5For this ye are aware of, knowing that no fornicator nor unclean nor covetous [person], who is an idolater, hath inheritance in the kingdom of the Christ and God.
6Let no one deceive you by vain words; for on account of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the sons of disobedience.
7Be not therefore fellow-partakers with them;
8for ye were once darkness but now [are] light in the Lord: walk as children of light
9(for the fruit of the light [is] in all goodness and righteousness and truth),
10proving what is agreeable to the Lord;
11and have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness but rather also reprove;
12for the things in secret done by them it is shameful even to speak of,
13but all of them, when reproved by the light, are made manifest; for everything that maketh manifest is light.
14Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise out of [the] dead, and the Christ shall shine upon thee.
15See therefore how carefully ye walk, not as unwise but as wise,
16buying up the time, because the days are evil.
17On this account be not foolish, but understanding what the will of the Lord [is].
18And be not drunk with wine, in which is dissoluteness, but be filled with [the] Spirit,
19speaking to each other in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and chanting in your heart to the Lord;
20giving thanks always for all things in [the] name of our Lord Jesus Christ to him that is God and Father,
21submitting yourselves one to another in fear of Christ.
22Wives, [submit yourselves] to your own husbands as to the Lord;
23for a husband is head of the wife, as also the Christ [is] head of the assembly: he [is] the saviour of the body.
24But as the assembly is subject to the Christ, so also the wives to their own husbands in everything.
25Husbands, love your own wives, even as the Christ also loved the assembly and gave himself up for it,
(Eph. 5:1‑25)
;
Eph. 6:1‑9• 1Children, obey your parents in [the] Lord; for this is just.
2Honour thy father and thy mother, which is a commandment first in promise,
3that it may be well for thee, and thou shalt be long-lived on the earth.
4And, fathers, provoke not your children to wrath, but bring them up in [the] Lord’s discipline and admonition.
5Bondmen, obey your masters according to flesh with fear and trembling, in singleness of your heart, as to the Christ;
6not with eye-service as men-pleasers but as bondmen of Christ, doing the will of God from the soul,
7with good-will doing service as to the Lord and not to men;
8knowing that whatever good each shall do, this he shall receive of [the] Lord, whether bond or free.
9And, masters, do the same things toward them, giving up threatening, knowing that the master both of them and of you is in [the] heavens; and there is no respect of persons with him.

4that they may train the young women to be lovers of husbands, lovers of children,
5discreet, chaste, workers at home, good, subject to their own husbands, that the word of God be not ill-spoken of.
6The younger men likewise exhort to be rightminded,
7in all things showing thyself a pattern of good works, in the teaching uncorruptness, gravity,
8healthy speech that cannot be condemned, that he that is of the contrary part may be ashamed, having no evil to say concerning us:
9bond-servants to be in subjection to their own masters, to be well-pleasing in all things, not gainsaying,
10not purloining, but showing all good fidelity, that they may adorn the doctrine of God our Saviour in all things.
11For the grace of God appeared bringing salvation to all men,

11Beloved, I exhort [you] as strangers and sojourners to abstain from the fleshly lusts such as war against the soul,
12having your behaviour comely among the Gentiles; that in what they speak against you as evil-doers, they, as observing,may from your comely works glorify God in [the] day of visitation.

3For the past time [is] sufficient to have wrought out the will of the Gentiles, walking as ye had done in lasciviousness, lusts, wine-bibbings, revels, carousings, and unhallowed idolatries;
4wherein they think it strange that ye run not with [them] into the same excess of profligacy, speaking injuriously,
