Darby's Synopsis
   1: Be ye therefore imitators of God, as beloved children,
   2: 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.
   3: But fornication and all uncleanness or unbridled lust, let it not be even named among you, as it becomes saints;
   4: and filthiness and foolish talking, or jesting, which are not convenient; but rather thanksgiving.
   5: 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.
   6: Let no one deceive you with vain words, for on account of these things the wrath of God comes upon the sons of disobedience.
   7: Be not ye therefore fellow-partakers with them;
   8: for ye were once darkness, but now light in [the] Lord; walk as children of light,
   9: (for the fruit of the light [is] in all goodness and righteousness and truth,)
   10: proving what is agreeable to the Lord;
   11: and do not have fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather also reprove [them],
   12: for the things that are done by them in secret it is shameful even to say.
   13: But all things having their true character exposed by the light are made manifest; for that which makes everything manifest is light.
   14: Wherefore he says, Wake up, [thou] that sleepest, and arise up from among the dead, and the Christ shall shine upon thee.
   15: See therefore how ye walk carefully, not as unwise but as wise,
   16: redeeming the time, because the days are evil.
   17: For this reason be not foolish, but understanding what [is] the will of the Lord.
   18: And be not drunk with wine, in which is debauchery; but be filled with the Spirit,
   19: speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and chanting with your heart to the Lord;
   20: giving thanks at all times for all things to him [who is] God and [the] Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ,
   21: submitting yourselves to one another in [the] fear of Christ.
   22: Wives, [submit yourselves] to your own husbands, as to the Lord,
   23: for a husband is head of the wife, as also the Christ [is] head of the assembly. He [is] Saviour of the body.
   24: But even as the assembly is subjected to the Christ, so also wives to their own husbands in everything.
   25: Husbands, love your own wives, even as the Christ also loved the assembly, and has delivered himself up for it,
   26: in order that he might sanctify it, purifying [it] by the washing of water by [the] word,
   27: 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.
   28: So ought men also to love their own wives as their own bodies: he that loves his own wife loves himself.
   29: For no one has ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, even as also the Christ the assembly:
   30: for we are members of his body; [we are of his flesh, and of his bones.]
   31: 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.
   32: This mystery is great, but I speak as to Christ, and as to the assembly.
   33: 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.
