Ephesians 4

1I exhort therefore you, I the prisoner in Lord, worthily to walk of the calling with which you were called, 2with all humility and gentleness, with patience; bearing with each other in love, 3using diligence to keep the oneness of the spirit by the uniting bond of the peace. 4One body and one spirit, even as also you were called in one hope of the calling of you; 5one Lord, one faith, one dipping, 6one God and Father of all, he over all and through all and in all to us. 7To one but each one of us was given the favor according to the measure of the free gift of the Anointed. 8(Therefore it says: Having ascended on high he captivated captivity, and he gave gifts to the men. 9This but, he ascended, what is it, if not that also he descended into the lower parts of the earth? 10The one having descended, he is also the one having ascended far above all of thew heavens, so that he might fill the all things). 11And he gave the indeed apostles, the and prophets, the and evangelists, the and shepherds and teachers, 12for the complete qualification of the holy ones for a work of service, for a building up of the body of the Anointed; 13till we may attain the all to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the son of the God, to a man perfect, to a measure of stature of the fulness of the Anointed; 14so that no longer we may be babes, being tossed and being whirled about with every wind of the teachings, in the trickery of the men, by cunning with the method of the deceit; 15being truthful but in love, we may grow into him the all things, who is the head, the Anointed; 16from whom all the body, (being fitly joined together and being compacted by means of every joint of the supply according to inworking,) by a measure of one of each part the growth of the body makes, for a building up of itself in love. 17This then I say, and testify in Lord, no longer you to walk, as also the others Gentiles walks in vanity of the mind of them, 18having been darkened in the understanding, being alienated from the life of the God, through the ignorance that being in them, through the stupidity of the heart of them; 19who having become callous, themselves gave over to the lewdness for a work of impurity all with eagerness. 20You but not thus learned the Anointed, 21if indeed him you heard and by him were taught, as is truth in the Jesus; 22to put from you, according to the former course of life, the old man, that being corrupt according to the inordinate desires of the deceit; 23to be renewed and in the spirit of the mind of you, 24and be you clothed with the new man, that according to God having been created in righteousness and holiness of the truth. 25Therefore putting away the falsehood, speak you truth, each one with the neighbor of himself; because we are of each other members. 26Be you angry and not do you sin; the sun not let it set on the wrath of you; 27not even give you a place for the accuser. 28The one stealing no longer let him steal, rather but let him toil working the good thing with the hands, so that he may have to give to the one want having. 29Every word rotten out of the mouth of you not let go forth, but, if anything good for a building up of the use, that it may give benefit to those hearing; 30and not grieve you the spirit the holy of the God, by which you were sealed for a day of redemption. 31All bitterness and anger and wrath and clamor and evil-speaking let be taken from you, with all malice; 32become you and towards each other kind ones, tender hearted ones, showing favor to others, even as also the God in Anointed showed favor to you.
