1 If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God.
2 Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.
3 For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God.
4 When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory.
5 Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry:
6 For which things' sake the wrath of God cometh on the children of disobedience:
7 In the which ye also walked some time, when ye lived in them.
8 But now ye also put off all these; anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy communication out of your mouth.
9 Lie not one to another, seeing that ye have put off the old man with his deeds;
10 And have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him:
11 Where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarians, Scythian, bond nor free: but Christ is all, and in all.
12 Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering;
13 Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye.
14 And above all these things put on charity, which is the bond of perfectness.
15 And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful.
16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.
17 And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.
18 Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as it is fit in the Lord.
19 Husbands, love your wives, and be not bitter against them.
20 Children, obey your parents in all things: for this is well pleasing unto the Lord.
21 Fathers, provoke not your children to anger, lest they be discouraged.
22 Servants, obey in all things your masters according to the flesh; not with eyeservice, as menpleasers; but in singleness of heart, fearing God;
23 And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men;
24 Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ.
25 But he that doeth wrong shall receive for the wrong which he hath done: and there is no respect of persons.
1 igitur si conresurrexistis Christo quae sursum sunt quaerite ubi Christus est in dextera Dei sedens
2 quae sursum sunt sapite non quae supra terram
3 mortui enim estis et vita vestra abscondita est cum Christo in Deo
4 cum Christus apparuerit vita vestra tunc et vos apparebitis cum ipso in gloria
5 mortificate ergo membra vestra quae sunt super terram fornicationem inmunditiam libidinem concupiscentiam malam et avaritiam quae est simulacrorum servitus
6 propter quae venit ira Dei super filios incredulitatis
7 in quibus et vos ambulastis aliquando cum viveretis in illis
8 nunc autem deponite et vos omnia iram indignationem malitiam blasphemiam turpem sermonem de ore vestro
9 nolite mentiri invicem expoliantes vos veterem hominem cum actibus eius
10 et induentes novum eum qui renovatur in agnitionem secundum imaginem eius qui creavit eum
11 ubi non est gentilis et Iudaeus circumcisio et praeputium barbarus et Scytha servus et liber sed omnia et in omnibus Christus
12 induite vos ergo sicut electi Dei sancti et dilecti viscera misericordiae benignitatem humilitatem modestiam patientiam
13 subportantes invicem et donantes vobis ipsis si quis adversus aliquem habet querellam sicut et Dominus donavit vobis ita et vos
14 super omnia autem haec caritatem quod est vinculum perfectionis
15 et pax Christi exultet in cordibus vestris in qua et vocati estis in uno corpore et grati estote
16 verbum Christi habitet in vobis abundanter in omni sapientia docentes et commonentes vosmet ipsos psalmis hymnis canticis spiritalibus in gratia cantantes in cordibus vestris Deo
17 omne quodcumque facitis in verbo aut in opere omnia in nomine Domini Iesu gratias agentes Deo et Patri per ipsum
18 mulieres subditae estote viris sicut oportet in Domino
19 viri diligite uxores et nolite amari esse ad illas
20 filii oboedite parentibus per omnia hoc enim placitum est in Domino
21 patres nolite ad indignationem provocare filios vestros ut non pusillo animo fiant
22 servi oboedite per omnia dominis carnalibus non ad oculum servientes quasi hominibus placentes sed in simplicitate cordis timentes Dominum
23 quodcumque facitis ex animo operamini sicut Domino et non hominibus
24 scientes quod a Domino accipietis retributionem hereditatis Domino Christo servite
25 qui enim iniuriam facit recipiet id quod inique gessit et non est personarum acceptio
