Ephesians 5


5:1 Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children;
5:2 And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath
 given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a
 sweet-smelling savor.
5:3 But lewdness and all uncleanness or covetousness, let it not
 be once named among you, as becometh saints;
5:4 Neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor jesting, which
 are not convenient: but rather giving of thanks.
5:5 For this ye know, that no lewd, nor unclean person, nor
 covetous man, who is an idolater, hath any inheritance in the
 kingdom of Christ and of God.
5:6 Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these
 things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of
 disobedience.
5:7 Be ye not therefore partakers with them.
5:8 For ye were sometime darkness, but now [are ye] light in the
 Lord: walk as children of light;
5:9 (For the fruit of the Spirit [is] in all goodness, and
 righteousness, and truth;)
5:10 Proving what is acceptable to the Lord.
5:11 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of
 darkness, but rather reprove [them].
5:12 For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are
 done by them in secret.
5:13 But all things that are reproved, are made manifest by the
 light: for whatever doth make manifest is light.
5:14 Wherefore he saith, Awake, thou that sleepest, and arise
 from the dead, and Christ will give thee light.
5:15 See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as
 wise,
5:16 Redeeming the time, because the days are evil.
5:17 Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will
 of the Lord [is].
5:18 And be not drunk with wine, in which is excess; but be
 filled with the Spirit;
5:19 Speaking to yourselves in psalms, and hymns, and spiritual
 songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord,
5:20 Giving thanks always for all things to God and the Father,
 in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ;
5:21 Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God.
5:22 Wives, submit yourselves to your own husbands, as to the
 Lord.
5:23 For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is
 the head of the church: and he is the Savior of the body.
5:24 Therefore as the church is subject to Christ, so [let]
 wives [be] to their own husbands in every thing.
5:25 Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the
 church, and gave himself for it;
5:26 That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of
 water by the word,
5:27 That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not
 having spot or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should
 be holy and without blemish.
5:28 So ought men to love their wives, as their own bodies. He
 that loveth his wife, loveth himself.
5:29 For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and
 cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church:
5:30 For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his
 bones.
5:31 For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and
 shall be joined to his wife, and they two shall be one flesh.
5:32 This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and
 the church.
5:33 Nevertheless, let every one of you in particular so love
 his wife even as himself: and the wife [see] that she reverence
 [her] husband.
