Ephesians 4:11-1711And a he gave the b apostles, the prophets, the c evangelists, the d shepherds ▼

▼Or the shepherd-teachers12 g to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for h building up i the body of Christ, 13until we all attain to j the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God k to mature manhood ▼
▼Greek to a full-grown manto the measure of the stature of m the fullness of Christ, 14so that we may no longer be children, n tossed to and fro by the waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by human cunning, by craftiness in o deceitful schemes. 15Rather p speaking the truth in love, we are to q grow up in every way into him who is r the head, into Christ, 16 s from whom the whole body, joined and held together by every joint with which it is equipped t when each part is working properly, makes the body grow so that it builds itself up in love.
The New Life17Now this I say and u testify in the Lord v that you must no longer walk as the Gentiles do, w in the futility of their minds.
Ephesians 4:20-3220But that is not the way you x learned Christ!— 21assuming that y you have heard about him and z were taught in him, as the truth is in Jesus, 22to aa put off ab your old self, ▼
▼Greek man; also verse 24which belongs to your former manner of life and is corrupt through ad deceitful desires, 23and ae to be renewed in the spirit of your minds, 24and to put on af the new self, ag created after the likeness of God in true righteousness and holiness. 25Therefore, having put away falsehood, let each one of you ah speak the truth with his neighbor, for ai we are members one of another. 26 aj Be angry and do not sin; do not let the sun go down on your anger, 27and ak give no opportunity to the devil. 28Let the thief no longer steal, but rather al let him labor, am doing honest work with his own hands, so an that he may have something to share with anyone in need. 29 ao Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give ap grace to those who hear. 30And aq do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God ar by whom you were sealed for the day of as redemption. 31 at Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you, along with all malice. 32 au Be kind to one another, tenderhearted av forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.
