“You shall have no other gods beforea me.h

“You shall not make for yourself an imagei in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below. You shall not bow down to them or worshipj them; for I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God,k punishing the children for the sin of the parentsl to the third and fourth generationm of those who hate me, but showing love to a thousandn generations of those who love me and keep my commandments.

“You shall not misuse the name of the Lord your God, for the Lord will not hold anyone guiltless who misuses his name.o

“Remember the Sabbathp day by keeping it holy. Six days you shall labor and do all your work,q 10 but the seventh day is a sabbathr to the Lord your God. On it you shall not do any work, neither you, nor your son or daughter, nor your male or female servant, nor your animals, nor any foreigner residing in your towns. 11 For in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth,s the sea, and all that is in them, but he restedt on the seventh day.u Therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy.

25 Therefore each of you must put off falsehood and speak truthfullyu to your neighbor, for we are all members of one body.v 26 “In your anger do not sin”d:w Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry, 27 and do not give the devil a foothold.x 28 Anyone who has been stealing must steal no longer, but must work,y doing something useful with their own hands,z that they may have something to share with those in need.a

29 Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths,b but only what is helpful for building others upc according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. 30 And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God,d with whom you were sealede for the day of redemption.f 31 Get rid ofg all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice.h 32 Be kind and compassionate to one another,i forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.j

5 Follow God’s example,k therefore, as dearly loved childrenl and walk in the way of love, just as Christ loved usm and gave himself up for usn as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.o

But among you there must not be even a hint of sexual immorality,p or of any kind of impurity, or of greed,q because these are improper for God’s holy people. Nor should there be obscenity, foolish talkr or coarse joking, which are out of place, but rather thanksgiving.s For of this you can be sure: No immoral, impure or greedy person—such a person is an idolatert—has any inheritanceu in the kingdom of Christ and of God.a v Let no one deceive youw with empty words, for because of such things God’s wrathx comes on those who are disobedient.y Therefore do not be partners with them.

For you were oncez darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of lighta (for the fruitb of the light consists in all goodness,c righteousness and truth) 10 and find out what pleases the Lord.d 11 Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness,e but rather expose them. 12 It is shameful even to mention what the disobedient do in secret. 13 But everything exposed by the lightf becomes visible—and everything that is illuminated becomes a light.
