Colossians 3

Put On the New Self

1 aIf then you have been raised with Christ, seek bthe things that are above, where Christ is, cseated at the right hand of God. 3For dyou have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. 5 ePut to death therefore fwhat is earthly in you:
Greek  therefore your members that are on the earth
hsexual immorality, impurity, ipassion, evil desire, and covetousness, jwhich is idolatry.
7 kIn these you too once walked, when you were living in them. 9 lDo not lie to one another, seeing that myou have put off nthe old self
Greek man; also as supplied in verse 10
with its practices
11 pHere there is not Greek and Jew, circumcised and uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave
Greek bondservant
free; but Christ is rall, and in all.

13 sbearing with one another and, tif one has a complaint against another, uforgiving each other; vas the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive. 15And let wthe peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called xin one body. And ybe thankful. 17And zwhatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, aagiving thanks to God the Father through him.

19Husbands, love your wives, and abdo not be harsh with them. 21Fathers, do not provoke your children, lest they become discouraged. 23 acWhatever you do, work heartily, adas for the Lord and not for men, 25For the wrongdoer will be paid back for the wrong he has done, and there is no partiality.
