Walk in Love
1 Thereforea be imitators of God as dear bchildren.
2 And awalk in love, bas Christ also has loved us and given Himself for us, an offering and a sacrifice to God cfor a sweet-smelling aroma.
3 But fornication and all auncleanness or bcovetousness, let it not even be named among you, as is fitting for saints;
4 aneither filthiness, nor bfoolish talking, nor coarse jesting, cwhich are not fitting, but rather dgiving of thanks.
5 For 1this you know, that no fornicator, unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, has any ainheritance in the kingdom of Christ and God.
6 Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of these things the wrath of God comes upon the sons of disobedience.
7 Therefore do not be apartakers with them.
Walk in Light
8 For you were once darkness, but now you are alight in the Lord. Walk as children of light
9 (for athe fruit of the 1Spirit is in all goodness, righteousness, and truth),
10 afinding out what is acceptable to the Lord.
11 And have ano fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather 1expose them.
12 aFor it is shameful even to speak of those things which are done by them in secret.
13 But aall things that are 1exposed are made manifest by the light, for whatever makes manifest is light.
14 Therefore He says:
a“Awake, you who sleep, Arise from the dead, And Christ will give you light.”
Walk in Wisdom
15 aSee then that you walk 1circumspectly, not as fools but as wise,
16 aredeeming the time, bbecause the days are evil.
17 aTherefore do not be unwise, but bunderstand cwhat the will of the Lord is.
18 And ado not be drunk with wine, in which is dissipation; but be filled with the Spirit,
19 speaking to one another ain psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making bmelody in your heart to the Lord,
20 agiving thanks always for all things to God the Father bin the name of our Lord Jesus Christ,
21 asubmitting to one another in the fear of 1God.
Marriage—Christ and the Church
22 Wives, asubmit to your own husbands, as to the Lord.
23 For athe husband is head of the wife, as also bChrist is head of the church; and He is the Savior of the body.
24 Therefore, just as the church is subject to Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands ain everything.
25 aHusbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and bgave Himself for her,
26 that He might 1sanctify and cleanse her awith the washing of water bby the word,
27 athat He might present her to Himself a glorious church, bnot having spot or wrinkle or any such thing, but that she should be holy and without blemish.
28 So husbands ought to love their own wives as their own bodies; he who loves his wife loves himself.
29 For no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as the Lord does the church.
30 For awe are members of His body, 1of His flesh and of His bones.
31 a“For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the btwo shall become one flesh.”
32 This is a great mystery, but I speak concerning Christ and the church.
33 Nevertheless alet each one of you in particular so love his own wife as himself, and let the wife see that she brespects her husband.
Children and Parents
1 Children, aobey your parents in the Lord, for this is right.
2 a“Honor your father and mother,” which is the first commandment with promise:
3 “that it may be well with you and you may live long on the earth.”
4 And ayou, fathers, do not provoke your children to wrath, but bbring them up in the training and admonition of the Lord.
Bondservants and Masters
5 aBondservants, be obedient to those who are your masters according to the flesh, bwith fear and trembling, cin sincerity of heart, as to Christ;
6 anot with eyeservice, as menpleasers, but as bondservants of

Christ, doing the will of God from the heart,
7 with goodwill doing service, as to the Lord, and not to men,
8 aknowing that whatever good anyone does, he will receive the same from the Lord, whether he is a slave or free.
9 And you, masters, do the same things to them, giving up threatening, knowing that 1your own aMaster also is in heaven, and bthere is no partiality with Him.
The Whole Armor of God
10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might.
11 aPut on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the 1wiles of the devil.
12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against aprincipalities, against powers, against bthe rulers of 1the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.
13 aTherefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand bin the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
14 Stand therefore, ahaving girded your waist with truth, bhaving put on the breastplate of righteousness,
15 aand having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
16 above all, taking athe of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one.
17 And atake the helmet of salvation, and bthe sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God;
18 apraying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, bbeing watchful to this end with all perseverance and csupplication for all the saints—
19 and for me, that utterance may be given to me, athat I may open my mouth boldly to make known the mystery of the gospel,
20 for which aI am an ambassador in chains; that in it I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.
A Gracious Greeting
21 But that you also may know my affairs and how I am doing, aTychicus, a beloved brother and bfaithful minister in the Lord, will make all things known to you;
22 awhom I have sent to you for this very purpose, that you may know our affairs, and that he may bcomfort your hearts.
23 Peace to the brethren, and love with faith, from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
24 Grace be with all those who love our Lord Jesus Christ in sincerity. Amen.
A Song of Confidence in God’s Triumph over Evil
1 WHY do You stand afar off, O LORD? Why do You hide in times of trouble?
2 The wicked in his pride 1persecutes the poor; aLet them be caught in the plots which they have devised.
3 For the wicked aboasts of his heart’s desire; 1He bblesses the greedy and renounces the LORD.
4 The wicked in his proud countenance does not seek God; 1God is in none of his athoughts.
5 His ways 1are always prospering; Your judgments are far above, out of his sight; As for all his enemies, he sneers at them.
6 aHe has said in his heart, “I shall not be moved; bI shall never be in adversity.”
7 aHis mouth is full of cursing and bdeceit and oppression; Under his tongue is trouble and iniquity.
8 He sits in the lurking places of the villages; In the secret places he murders the innocent; His eyes are secretly fixed on the helpless.

12 Arise, O LORD! O God, alift up Your hand! Do not forget the bhumble.
13 Why do the wicked renounce God? He has said in his heart, “You will not require an account.”
14 But You have aseen, for You observe trouble and grief, To repay it by Your hand. The helpless bcommits1 himself to You; cYou are the helper of the fatherless.
15 Break the arm of the wicked and the evil man; Seek out his wickedness until You find none.
16 aThe LORD is King forever and ever; The nations have perished out of His land.
17 LORD,You have heard the desire of the humble; You will prepare their heart; You will cause Your ear to hear,
18 To 1do justice to the fatherless and the oppressed, That the man of the earth may 2oppress no more.
