4 The love is long-suffering, it is kind, the love does not envy, the love does not vaunt itself, is not puffed up,
5 does not act unseemly, does not seek its own things, is not provoked, does not impute evil,
6 rejoices not over the unrighteousness, and rejoices with the truth;
7 all things it bears, all it believes, all it hopes, all it endures.
So that they are no more two, but one flesh; what therefore God did join together, let no man put asunder.'
what therefore God did join together, let not man put asunder.'
26 for you are all sons of God through the faith in Christ Jesus,
27 for as many as to Christ were baptized did put on Christ;
28 there is not here Jew or Greek, there is not here servant nor freeman, there is not here male and female, for all you are one in Christ Jesus;
see no one evil for evil may render to any one, but always that which is good pursue you, both to one another and to all;
so ought the husbands to love their own wives as their own bodies: he who is loving his own wife -- himself he does love;
for no one ever his own flesh did hate, but does nourish and cherish it, as also the Lord -- the assembly,
Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour outcry , and evil-speaking, be put away from you, along with all malice,
and become one to another kind, tender-hearted compassionate , forgiving one another, according as also God in Christ did forgive you MT reads us .
14 and above all these things, have love, which is a bond of the perfection,
15 and let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to which also you were called in one body, and become thankful.
16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing each other, in psalms, and hymns, and spiritual songs, in grace singing in your hearts to the Lord;
17 and all, whatever you may do in word or in work, do all things in the name of the Lord Jesus -- giving thanks to the God and Father, through him.
Become not yoked with others -- unbelievers, for what partaking is there to righteousness and lawlessness?
but neither is a man apart from a woman, nor a woman apart from a man, in the Lord,
and above all these things, have love, which is a bond of the perfection,
'for this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined to his wife, and they shall be -- the two -- for one flesh;'
The husbands! love your own wives, as also the Christ did love the assembly, and did give himself for it,
25 Wherefore, putting away the lying, speak truth each with his neighbour, because we are members one of another;
26 be angry and do not sin; let not the sun go down upon your wrath,
27 neither give place to the devil;
28 whosoever is stealing let him no more steal, but rather let him labour, working the thing that is good with the hands, that he may have to impart give to him having need.
29 Let no corrupt word out of your mouth go forth, but what is good unto the needful building up, that it may give grace to the hearers;
30 and make not sorrowful the Holy Spirit of God, in which you were sealed to a day of redemption.
31 Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour outcry , and evil-speaking, be put away from you, along with all malice,
32 and become one to another kind, tender-hearted compassionate , forgiving one another, according as also God in Christ did forgive you MT reads us .
honourable is the marriage in all, and the bed undefiled, and whoremongers and adulterers God shall judge.
nothing in rivalry or vain-glory, but in humility of mind one another counting more excellent than yourselves --
each not to your own look you, but each also to the things of others.
