Unchecked Copy BoxEph 5:1 - Therefore, be imitators of God as dearly loved children

Unchecked Copy BoxEph 5:2 - and live in love, just as Christ also loved us and gave himself for us, a sacrificial and fragrant offering to God.

Unchecked Copy BoxEph 5:3 - But among you there must not be either sexual immorality, impurity of any kind, or greed, as these are not fitting for the saints.

Unchecked Copy BoxEph 5:4 - Neither should there be vulgar speech, foolish talk, or coarse jesting - all of which are out of character - but rather thanksgiving.

Unchecked Copy BoxEph 5:5 - For you can be confident of this one thing: that no person who is immoral, impure, or greedy (such a person is an idolater) has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and God.

Unchecked Copy BoxEph 5:6 - Let nobody deceive you with empty words, for because of these things God's wrath comes on the sons of disobedience.

Unchecked Copy BoxEph 5:7 - Therefore do not be partakers with them,

Unchecked Copy BoxEph 5:8 - for you were at one time darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of the light -

Unchecked Copy BoxEph 5:9 - for the fruit of the light consists in all goodness, righteousness, and truth -

Unchecked Copy BoxEph 5:10 - trying to learn what is pleasing to the Lord.

Unchecked Copy BoxEph 5:11 - Do not participate in the unfruitful deeds of darkness, but rather expose them.

Unchecked Copy BoxEph 5:12 - For the things they do in secret are shameful even to mention.

Unchecked Copy BoxEph 5:13 - But all things being exposed by the light are made evident.

Unchecked Copy BoxEph 5:14 - For everything made evident is light, and for this reason it says: "Awake, O sleeper! Rise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you!"

Unchecked Copy BoxEph 5:15 - Therefore be very careful how you live - not as unwise but as wise,

Unchecked Copy BoxEph 5:16 - taking advantage of every opportunity, because the days are evil.

Unchecked Copy BoxEph 5:17 - For this reason do not be foolish, but be wise by understanding what the Lord's will is.

Unchecked Copy BoxEph 5:18 - And do not get drunk with wine, which is debauchery, but be filled by the Spirit,

Unchecked Copy BoxEph 5:19 - speaking to one another in psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs, singing and making music in your hearts to the Lord,

Unchecked Copy BoxEph 5:20 - always giving thanks to God the Father for each other in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ,

Unchecked Copy BoxEph 5:21 - and submitting to one another out of reverence for Christ.

Unchecked Copy BoxEph 5:22 - Wives, submit to your husbands as to the Lord,

Unchecked Copy BoxEph 5:23 - because the husband is the head of the wife as also Christ is the head of the church - he himself being the savior of the body.

Unchecked Copy BoxEph 5:24 - But as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit to their husbands in everything.

Unchecked Copy BoxEph 5:25 - Husbands, love your wives just as Christ loved the church and gave himself for her

Unchecked Copy BoxEph 5:26 - to sanctify her by cleansing her with the washing of the water by the word,

Unchecked Copy BoxEph 5:27 - so that he may present the church to himself as glorious - not having a stain or wrinkle, or any such blemish, but holy and blameless.

Unchecked Copy BoxEph 5:28 - In the same way husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself.

Unchecked Copy BoxEph 5:29 - For no one has ever hated his own body but he feeds it and takes care of it, just as Christ also does the church,

Unchecked Copy BoxEph 5:30 - for we are members of his body.

Unchecked Copy BoxEph 5:31 - For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and will be joined to his wife, and the two will become one flesh.

Unchecked Copy BoxEph 5:32 - This mystery is great - but I am actually speaking with reference to Christ and the church.

Unchecked Copy BoxEph 5:33 - Nevertheless, each one of you must also love his own wife as he loves himself, and the wife must respect her husband.
