Ephesians 4:17–32

17 This I say therefore, and testify in the Lord, that cye henceforth walk not as other Gentiles walk, din the vanity of their mind, 18 eHaving the understanding darkened, fbeing alienated from the life of God through gthe ignorance that is in them, because of the ||dblindness of their heart: 19 Who ggbeing past feeling hhave given themselves over unto ilasciviousness, to work all iuncleanness with greediness. 20 But ye have not so learned Christ; 21 If so be that jye have heard him, and have been taught by him, as the truth is in Jesus: 22 That ye kput off lconcerning the former mconversation nthe old man, owhich is corrupt according to oothe deceitful lusts; 23 And pbe renewed in the spirit of your mind; 24 And that ye put on qthe new man, which rafter God sis created in trighteousness and ||true tholiness.

25 Wherefore kputting away lying, uspeak every man truth with his neighbour: for we are wmembers one of another. 26 xBe ye angry, and sin not: ylet not zthe sun go down upon your wrath: 27 Neither agive place to the devil. 28 Let him that stole steal no more: but rather blet him labour, working with his hands the thing which is good, cthat he may have ||to give dto him that needeth. 29 eLet no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good ||fto the use of edifying, that it may minister ggrace unto the hearers. 30 And higrieve not hkthe holy Spirit of God, lwhereby ye are sealed unto the day of mredemption. 31 Let all nbitterness, and owrath, and oanger, and clamour, and opevil speaking, be put away from you, with all oqmalice: 32 And be ye rkind one to another, stenderhearted, rtforgiving one another, reven as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.
