Put On the New Self
1 Therefore if you have been araised up with Christ, keep seeking the things above, where Christ is, bseated at the right hand of God.
2 1aSet your mind on the things above, not on the things that are on earth.
3 For you have adied and your life is hidden with Christ in God.
4 When Christ, awho is our life, is revealed, bthen you also will be revealed with Him in glory.
5 aTherefore 1consider bthe members of your earthly body as dead to 2cimmorality, impurity, passion, evil desire, and greed, which 3amounts to idolatry.
6 For it is because of these things that athe wrath of God will come 1upon the sons of disobedience,
7 and ain them you also once walked, when you were living 1in them.
8 But now you also, aput them all aside: banger, wrath, malice, slander, and cabusive speech from your mouth.
9 1aDo not lie to one another, since you blaid aside the old 2self with its evil practices,
10 and have aput on the new self who is being 1brenewed to a true knowledge caccording to the image of the One who dcreated him—
11 a renewal in which athere is no distinction between Greek and Jew, bcircumcised and uncircumcised, cbarbarian, Scythian, dslave and freeman, but eChrist is all, and in all.
