Colossians 3:1–14

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.

12 So, as those who have been achosen of God, holy and beloved, bput on a cheart of compassion, kindness, dhumility, gentleness and 1epatience;

13 abearing with one another, and bforgiving each other, whoever has a complaint against anyone; bjust as the Lord forgave you, so also should you.

14 Beyond all these things put on love, which is 1athe perfect bond of bunity.
