1 Be ye therefore a of God, as dear children;
2 And a in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an b and a c to God for a sweetsmelling d.
3 But a, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named among you, as becometh b;
4 Neither a, nor b c, nor jesting, which are not convenient: but rather giving of thanks.
5 For this ye know, that no a, nor b person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, hath any c in the kingdom of Christ and of God.
6 Let no man a you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the b of God upon the children of c.
7 Be not ye therefore partakers with them.
8 For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as a of b:
9 (For the fruit of the Spirit is in all a and righteousness and truth;)
10 Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord.
11 And have no a with the unfruitful works of b, but rather c them.
12 For it is a a even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret.
13 But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the light: for whatsoever doth make manifest is light.
14 Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee a.
15 See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise,
16 Redeeming the time, because the days are evil.
17 Wherefore be ye not a, but understanding what the will of the Lord is.
18 And be not a with wine, wherein is b; but be filled with the Spirit;
19 Speaking to yourselves in psalms and a and spiritual songs, singing and making b in your heart to the Lord;
20 Giving a always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ;
21 a yourselves one to another in the fear of God.
22 a, b yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord.
23 For the a is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the b of the c: and he is the saviour of the body.
24 Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing.
25 a, b your c, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;
26 That he might a and b it with the washing of water by the word,
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.
28 So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his a loveth himself.
29 For no man ever yet a his own b; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church:
30 For we are a of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones.
31 For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be a flesh.
32 This is a great a: but I speak concerning Christ and the church.
33 Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and the a see that she b her husband.
