Ephesians: Chapter 5

(Eph 5:1 KJV)  Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children;

 

(Eph 5:2 KJV)  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 sweetsmelling savour.

 

(Eph 5:3 KJV)  But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named among you, as becometh saints;

 

(Eph 5:4 KJV)  Neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor jesting, which are not convenient: but rather giving of thanks.

 

(Eph 5:5 KJV)  For this ye know, that no whoremonger, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, hath any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God.

 

(Eph 5:6 KJV)  Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience.

 

(Eph 5:7 KJV)  Be not ye therefore partakers with them.

 

(Eph 5:8 KJV)  For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light:

 

(Eph 5:9 KJV)  (For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth;)

 

(Eph 5:10 KJV)  Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord.

 

(Eph 5:11 KJV)  And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.

 

(Eph 5:12 KJV)  For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret.

 

(Eph 5:13 KJV)  But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the light: for whatsoever doth make manifest is light.

 

(Eph 5:14 KJV)  Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light.

 

(Eph 5:15 KJV)  See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise,

 

(Eph 5:16 KJV)  Redeeming the time, because the days are evil.

 

(Eph 5:17 KJV)  Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is.

 

(Eph 5:18 KJV)  And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit;

 

(Eph 5:19 KJV)  Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord;

 

(Eph 5:20 KJV)  Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ;

 

(Eph 5:21 KJV)  Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God.

 

(Eph 5:22 KJV)  Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord.

 

(Eph 5:23 KJV)  For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body.

 

(Eph 5:24 KJV)  Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing.

 

(Eph 5:25 KJV)  Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;

 

(Eph 5:26 KJV)  That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word,

 

(Eph 5:27 KJV)  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.

 

(Eph 5:28 KJV)  So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself.

 

(Eph 5:29 KJV)  For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church:

 

(Eph 5:30 KJV)  For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones.

 

(Eph 5:31 KJV)  For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh.

 

(Eph 5:32 KJV)  This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church.

 

(Eph 5:33 KJV)  Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and the wife see that she reverence her husband.
