Colossenses 3

1 If then you{+} were raised together with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God.

2 Set your{+} mind on the things that are above, not on the things that are on the earth.

3 For you{+} died, and your{+} life is hid with Christ in God.

4 When Christ will be manifested, [who is] your{+} life, then you{+} will also be manifested with him in glory.

5 Put to death therefore your{+} members which are on the earth: fornication, impurity, immoral sexual passion, evil desire, and greed, which is idolatry;

6 because of these things the wrath of God comes on the sons of disobedience:

7 in which you{+} also once walked, when you{+} lived in these things;

8 but now do you{+} also put them all away: anger, wrath, malice, railing, shameful speaking out of your{+} mouth:

9 do not lie one to another; seeing that you{+} have put off the old man with his activities,

10 and have put on the new man, who is being renewed to knowledge after the image of him who created him:

11 where there can't be Greek and Jew, circumcision and uncircumcision, barbarian, Scythian, slave, free; but Christ is all things, and in all.

12 Put on therefore, as God's elect, holy and beloved, a heart of compassion, kindness, lowliness, meekness, long-suffering;

13 forbearing one another, and forgiving each other, if any man has a complaint against any; even as the Lord forgave you{+}, so also [should] you{+}:

14 and above all these things [put on] love, which is the bond of perfectness.

15 And let the peace of Christ rule in your{+} hearts, to the which you{+} also were called in one body; and be{+} thankful.

16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you{+} richly; in all wisdom teaching and admonishing one another with psalms [and] hymns [and] spiritual songs, singing with grace in your{+} hearts to God.

17 And whatever you{+} do, in word or in deed, [do] all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.

18 Wives, be in subjection to your{+} husbands, as is fitting in the Lord.

19 Husbands, love your{+} wives, and do not be bitter against them.

20 Children, obey your{+} parents in all things, for this is well-pleasing in the Lord.

21 Fathers, do not provoke your{+} children, that they not be discouraged.

22 Slaves, obey in all things those who are your{+} masters according to the flesh; not with eye-service, as men-pleasers, but in singleness of heart, fearing the Lord:

23 whatever you{+} do, work heartily, as to the Lord, and not to men;

24 knowing that from the Lord you{+} will receive the recompense of the inheritance: you{+} serve as slaves to the Lord Christ.

25 For he who does wrong will receive again for the wrong that he has done: and there is no respect of persons.
