Ephesians 4


4:1 I therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you that ye
 walk worthy of the vocation by which ye are called,
4:2 With all lowliness and meekness, with long-suffering,
 forbearing one another in love;
4:3 Endeavoring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of
 peace.
4:4 [There is] one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called
 in one hope of your calling;
4:5 One Lord, one faith, one baptism,
4:6 One God and Father of all, who [is] above all, and through
 all, and in you all.
4:7 But to every one of us is given grace according to the
 measure of the gift of Christ.
4:8 Wherefore he saith, When he ascended on high, he led
 captivity captive, and gave gifts to men.
4:9 Now that he ascended, what is it but that he also descended
 first into the lower parts of the earth?
4:10 He that descended is the same also that ascended far above
 all heavens, that he might fill all things.
4:11 And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some,
 evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers;
4:12 For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the
 ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:
4:13 Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the
 knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure
 of the stature of the fullness of Christ:
4:14 That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro,
 and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight
 of men, [and] cunning craftiness, by which they lie in wait to
 deceive:
4:15 But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all
 things, who is the head, [even] Christ:
4:16 From whom the whole body fitly joined together and
 compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the
 effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase
 of the body to the edifying of itself in love.
4:17 This I say therefore, and testify in the Lord, that ye
 henceforth walk not as other Gentiles walk, in the vanity of
 their mind,
4:18 Having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the
 life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of
 the blindness of their heart:
4:19 Who being past feeling have given themselves over to
 lasciviousness, to work all uncleanness with greediness.
4:20 But ye have not so learned Christ;
4:21 If indeed ye have heard him, and have been taught by him,
 as the truth is in Jesus:
4:22 That ye put off concerning the former manner of life the
 old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts:
4:23 And be renewed in the Spirit of your mind;
4:24 And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created
 in righteousness and true holiness.
4:25 Wherefore putting away lying, speak every man truth with
 his neighbor: for we are members one of another.
4:26 Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your
 wrath:
4:27 Neither give place to the devil.
4:28 Let him that stole steal no more: but rather let him labor,
 working with [his] hands the thing which is good, that he may
 have to give to him that needeth.
4:29 Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but
 that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister
 grace to the hearers.
4:30 And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are
 sealed to the day of redemption.
4:31 Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamor, and
 evil-speaking, be put away from you, with all malice:
4:32 And be ye kind one to another, tender-hearted, forgiving
 one another, even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you.
