1: Become, then, followers of God, as children beloved, 2: and walk in love, as also the Christ did love us, and did give himself for us, an offering and a sacrifice to God for an odour of a sweet smell, 3: and whoredom, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not even be named among you, as becometh saints; 4: also filthiness, and foolish talking, or jesting, -- the things not fit -- but rather thanksgiving; 5: for this ye know, that every whoremonger, or unclean, or covetous person, who is an idolater, hath no inheritance in the reign of the Christ and God. 6: Let no one deceive you with vain words, for because of these things cometh the anger of God upon the sons of the disobedience, 7: become not, then, partakers with them, 8: for ye were once darkness, and now light in the Lord; as children of light walk ye, 9: for the fruit of the Spirit [is] in all goodness, and righteousness, and truth, 10: proving what is well-pleasing to the Lord, 11: and have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of the darkness and rather even convict, 12: for the things in secret done by them it is a shame even to speak of, 13: and all the things reproved by the light are manifested, for everything that is manifested is light; 14: wherefore he saith, 'Arouse thyself, thou who art sleeping, and arise out of the dead, and the Christ shall shine upon thee.' 15: See, then, how exactly ye walk, not as unwise, but as wise, 16: redeeming the time, because the days are evil; 17: because of this become not fools, but -- understanding what [is] the will of the Lord, 18: and be not drunk with wine, in which is dissoluteness, but be filled in 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, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, to the God and Father; 21: subjecting yourselves to one another in the fear of God. 22: The wives! to your own husbands subject yourselves, as to the Lord, 23: because the husband is head of the wife, as also the Christ [is] head of the assembly, and he is saviour of the body, 24: but even as the assembly is subject to Christ, so also [are] the wives to their own husbands in everything. 25: The husbands! love your own wives, as also the Christ did love the assembly, and did give himself for it, 26: that he might sanctify it, having cleansed [it] with the bathing of the water in the saying, 27: that he might present it to himself the assembly in glory, not having spot or wrinkle, or any of such things, but that it may be holy and unblemished; 28: so ought the husbands to love their own wives as their own bodies: he who is loving his own wife -- himself he doth love; 29: for no one ever his own flesh did hate, but doth nourish and cherish it, as also the Lord -- the assembly, 30: because members we are of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones; 31: 'for this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined to his wife, and they shall be -- the two -- for one flesh;' 32: this secret is great, and I speak in regard to Christ and to the assembly; 33: but ye also, every one in particular -- let each his own wife so love as himself, and the wife -- that she may reverence the husband.
