Ephesians 5

1Be ye therefore followers of  יהוה, as dear children; 2And walk in love, as the Messiah also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to  יהוה for a sweetsmelling savour. 3But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named among you, as becometh saints; 4Neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor jesting, which are not convenient: but rather giving of thanks. 5For this ye know, that no whoremonger, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, hath any inheritance in the kingdom of the Messiah and of  יהוה. 6Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of  יהוה upon the children of disobedience. 7Be not ye therefore partakers with them. 8For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye in the light of  יהוה: walk as children of light: 9(For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth;) 10Proving what is acceptable unto  יהוה. 11And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them. 12For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret. 13But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the light: for whatsoever doth make manifest is light. 14Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and the Messiah shall give thee light. 15See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, 16Redeeming the time, because the days are evil. 17Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of  יהוה is. 18And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit; 19Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to  יהוה; 20Giving thanks always for all things unto  יהוה the Father in the name of our Master  Yahushua the Messiah; 21Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of  יהוה. 22Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto  Yahushua. 23For the husband is the head of the wife, even as the Messiah is the head of the assembly: and he is the saviour of the body. 24Therefore as the assembly is subject unto the Messiah, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing. 25Husbands, love your wives, even as the Messiah also loved the assembly, and gave himself for it; 26That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word, 27That he might present it to himself a glorious assembly, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish. 28So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself. 29For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as  Yahushua the assembly: 30For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones. 31For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh. 32This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning the Messiah and the assembly. 33Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and the wife see that she reverence her husband.
