Unchecked Copy BoxEph 4:3 - Endeavouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.

Unchecked Copy BoxEph 4:4 - There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling;

Unchecked Copy BoxEph 4:13 - Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ:

Unchecked Copy BoxEph 4:14 - That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive;

Unchecked Copy BoxEph 4:15 - But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ:

Unchecked Copy BoxEph 4:16 - From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love.

Unchecked Copy BoxEph 4:17 - This I say therefore, and testify in the Lord, that ye henceforth walk not as other Gentiles walk, in the vanity of their mind,

Unchecked Copy BoxEph 4:18 - Having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart:

Unchecked Copy BoxEph 4:19 - Who being past feeling have given themselves over unto lasciviousness, to work all uncleanness with greediness.
