049:005:001
Be ye therefore followers of God,
as dear children;


049:005:002
And 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.


049:005:003
But fornication,
and all uncleanness,
or covetousness,
let it not be once named among you,
as becometh saints;


049:005:004
Neither filthiness,
nor foolish talking,
nor jesting,
which are not convenient:
but rather giving of thanks.


049:005:005
For 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.


049:005:006
Let no man deceive you with vain words:
for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience.


049:005:007
Be not ye therefore partakers with them.


049:005:008
For ye were sometimes darkness,
but now are ye light in the Lord:
walk as children of light:


049:005:009
(For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth;)


049:005:010
Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord.


049:005:011
And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness,
but rather reprove them.


049:005:012
For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret.


049:005:013
But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the light:
for whatsoever doth make manifest is light.


049:005:014
Wherefore he saith,
Awake thou that sleepest,
and arise from the dead,
and Christ shall give thee light.


049:005:015
See then that ye walk circumspectly,
not as fools,
but as wise,


049:005:016
Redeeming the time,
because the days are evil.


049:005:017
Wherefore be ye not unwise,
but understanding what the will of the Lord is.


049:005:018
And be not drunk with wine,
wherein is excess;
but be filled with the Spirit;


049:005:019
Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs,
singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord;


049:005:020
Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ;


049:005:021
Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God.


049:005:022
Wives,
submit yourselves unto your own husbands,
as unto the Lord.


049:005:023
For 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.


049:005:024
Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ,
so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing.


049:005:025
Husbands,
love your wives,
even as Christ also loved the church,
and gave himself for it;


049:005:026
That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word,


049:005:027
That 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.


049:005:028
So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies.
He that loveth his wife loveth himself.


049:005:029
For no man ever yet hated his own flesh;
but nourisheth and cherisheth it,
even as the Lord the church:


049:005:030
For we are members of his body,
of his flesh,
and of his bones.


049:005:031
For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother,
and shall be joined unto his wife,
and they two shall be one flesh.


049:005:032
This is a great mystery:
but I speak concerning Christ and the church.


049:005:033
Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself;
and the wife see that she reverence her husband.
