Tools specific to Eph 5:1

Unchecked Copy Box Eph 5:1

Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children;

Tools specific to Eph 5:2

Unchecked Copy Box Eph 5:2

and walk in love, just as Christ also loved [fn]you and gave Himself up for us, an offering and a sacrifice to God [fn]as a fragrant aroma.

Tools specific to Eph 5:3

Unchecked Copy Box Eph 5:3

But immorality [fn]or any impurity or greed must not even be named among you, as is proper among [fn]saints;

Tools specific to Eph 5:4

Unchecked Copy Box Eph 5:4

and there must be no filthiness and silly talk, or coarse jesting, which are not fitting, but rather giving of thanks.

Tools specific to Eph 5:5

Unchecked Copy Box Eph 5:5

For this you know with certainty, that no [fn]immoral or impure person or covetous man, who is an idolater, has an inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and God.

Tools specific to Eph 5:6

Unchecked Copy Box Eph 5:6

Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of these things the wrath of God comes upon the sons of disobedience.

Tools specific to Eph 5:7

Unchecked Copy Box Eph 5:7

Therefore do not be partakers with them;

Tools specific to Eph 5:8

Unchecked Copy Box Eph 5:8

for you were formerly darkness, but now you are Light in the Lord; walk as children of Light

Tools specific to Eph 5:9

Unchecked Copy Box Eph 5:9

(for the fruit of the Light consists in all goodness and righteousness and truth),

Tools specific to Eph 5:10

Unchecked Copy Box Eph 5:10

[fn]trying to learn what is pleasing to the Lord.

Tools specific to Eph 5:11

Unchecked Copy Box Eph 5:11

Do not participate in the unfruitful deeds of darkness, but instead even [fn]expose them;

Tools specific to Eph 5:12

Unchecked Copy Box Eph 5:12

for it is disgraceful even to speak of the things which are done by them in secret.

Tools specific to Eph 5:13

Unchecked Copy Box Eph 5:13

But all things become visible when they are [fn]exposed by the light, for everything that becomes visible is light.

Tools specific to Eph 5:14

Unchecked Copy Box Eph 5:14

For this reason [fn]it says,
“Awake, sleeper,
And arise from the dead,
And Christ will shine on you.”

Tools specific to Eph 5:15

Unchecked Copy Box Eph 5:15

Therefore [fn]be careful how you walk, not as unwise men but as wise,

Tools specific to Eph 5:16

Unchecked Copy Box Eph 5:16

[fn]making the most of your time, because the days are evil.

Tools specific to Eph 5:17

Unchecked Copy Box Eph 5:17

So then do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is.

Tools specific to Eph 5:18

Unchecked Copy Box Eph 5:18

And do not get drunk with wine, [fn]for that is dissipation, but be filled with the Spirit,

Tools specific to Eph 5:19

Unchecked Copy Box Eph 5:19

speaking to [fn]one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody with your heart to the Lord;

Tools specific to Eph 5:20

Unchecked Copy Box Eph 5:20

always giving thanks for all things in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ to [fn]God, even the Father;

Tools specific to Eph 5:21

Unchecked Copy Box Eph 5:21

[fn]and be subject to one another in the [fn]fear of Christ.

Tools specific to Eph 5:22

Unchecked Copy Box Eph 5:22

Wives, be subject to your own husbands, as to the Lord.

Tools specific to Eph 5:23

Unchecked Copy Box Eph 5:23

For the husband is the head of the wife, as Christ also is the head of the church, He Himself being the Savior of the body.

Tools specific to Eph 5:24

Unchecked Copy Box Eph 5:24

But as the church is subject to Christ, so also the wives ought to be to their husbands in everything.

Tools specific to Eph 5:25

Unchecked Copy Box Eph 5:25

Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself up for her,

Tools specific to Eph 5:26

Unchecked Copy Box Eph 5:26

so that He might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word,

Tools specific to Eph 5:27

Unchecked Copy Box Eph 5:27

that He might present to Himself the church [fn]in all her glory, having no spot or wrinkle or any such thing; but that she would be holy and blameless.

Tools specific to Eph 5:28

Unchecked Copy Box Eph 5:28

So husbands ought also to love their own wives as their own bodies. He who loves his own wife loves himself;

Tools specific to Eph 5:29

Unchecked Copy Box Eph 5:29

for no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as Christ also does the church,

Tools specific to Eph 5:30

Unchecked Copy Box Eph 5:30

because we are members of His body.

Tools specific to Eph 5:31

Unchecked Copy Box Eph 5:31

FOR THIS REASON A MAN SHALL LEAVE HIS FATHER AND MOTHER AND SHALL BE JOINED TO HIS WIFE, AND THE TWO SHALL BECOME ONE FLESH.

Tools specific to Eph 5:32

Unchecked Copy Box Eph 5:32

This mystery is great; but I am speaking with reference to Christ and the church.

Tools specific to Eph 5:33

Unchecked Copy Box Eph 5:33

Nevertheless, each individual among you also is to love his own wife even as himself, and the wife must see to it that she [fn]respects her husband.
