Ephesians 4

I exhort therefore you, I the prisoner in Lord, worthily to walk of the calling with which you were called, with all humility and gentleness, with patience; bearing with each other in love, using diligence to keep the oneness of the spirit by the uniting bond of the peace. One body and one spirit, even as also you were called in one hope of the calling of you; one Lord, one faith, one dipping, one God and Father of all, he over all and through all and in all to us. To one but each one of us was given the favor according to the measure of the free gift of the Anointed. (Therefore it says: Having ascended on high he captivated captivity, and he gave gifts to the men. This but, he ascended, what is it, if not that also he descended into the lower parts of the earth? 10 The one having descended, he is also the one having ascended far above all of thew heavens, so that he might fill the all things). 11 And he gave the indeed apostles, the and prophets, the and evangelists, the and shepherds and teachers, 12 for the complete qualification of the holy ones for a work of service, for a building up of the body of the Anointed; 13 till 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; 14 so 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; 15 being truthful but in love, we may grow into him the all things, who is the head, the Anointed; 16 from 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. 17 This 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, 18 having 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; 19 who having become callous, themselves gave over to the lewdness for a work of impurity all with eagerness. 20 You but not thus learned the Anointed, 21 if indeed him you heard and by him were taught, as is truth in the Jesus; 22 to put from you, according to the former course of life, the old man, that being corrupt according to the inordinate desires of the deceit; 23 to be renewed and in the spirit of the mind of you, 24 and be you clothed with the new man, that according to God having been created in righteousness and holiness of the truth. 25 Therefore putting away the falsehood, speak you truth, each one with the neighbor of himself; because we are of each other members. 26 Be you angry and not do you sin; the sun not let it set on the wrath of you; 27 not even give you a place for the accuser. 28 The 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. 29 Every 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; 30 and not grieve you the spirit the holy of the God, by which you were sealed for a day of redemption. 31 All bitterness and anger and wrath and clamor and evil-speaking let be taken from you, with all malice; 32 become 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.
