If you, then, are risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sits at the right hand of God.

Set your mind on things which are above, not on things which are on the earth.

For you have died, and your life has been hidden with Christ in God.

When Christ (Who is your life) is revealed, then you shall also be revealed with Him in glory.

Therefore, mortify those parts of your body which are of the earth: fornication, impurity, depraved passions, lust, and covetousness (which is idolatry),

for the sake of which things the wrath of God is coming on the sons of disobedience;

and wherein also you once walked when you lived in them.

But now, however, take all these things out of your mouth also: anger, wrath, malice, slander, foul language.

Do not lie to one another, having put off the old man with his deeds

10 and having put on the new (who is renewed in knowledge after the image of Him who created him).

11 There is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, slave, free; but all, and in all, is Christ.

12 Now, therefore, as the Elect of God, holy and beloved, put on hearts of compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience,

13 bearing with one another and forgiving one another. If anyone has a quarrel with another, even as Christ forgave, so do you.

14 And above all these things put on love, which is the bond of complete unity.

15 And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to which you were called in one body. And be thankful.

16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you abundantly, in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing each other in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with a grace in your hearts to God.

17 And whatever you shall do, in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.

18 Wives, submit yourselves to your husbands, as it is fitting in the Lord.

19 Husbands, love your wives, and do not be embittered toward them.

20 Children, obey your parents in all things, for that is well-pleasing to the Lord.

21 Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, lest they be discouraged.

22 Servants, in all things, be obedient to those who are your masters according to the flesh; not with eye-service as men-pleasers, but in singleness of heart, fearing God.

23 And whatever you do, work from your soul, as to the Lord, and not to men;

24 knowing that you shall receive the reward of the inheritance from the Lord. You serve the Lord Christ.

25 But the one who does wrong shall be repaid for the wrong that he has done. And there is no respect of persons.
