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