3:1 Therefore if ye have risen together with Christ, seek ye those things that be above, where Christ is sitting on the right half of God. If ye be then risen again with Christ seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of god. If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth at the right hand of God. If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God:
3:2 Savour ye those things that be above, not those that be on the earth. Set your affection on things that are above, and not on things which are on the earth. Set your affections on things which are above, and not on things, which are on the earth. Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.
3:3 For ye be dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God. For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in god. For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God. For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God.
3:4 For when Christ shall appear, your life, then also ye shall appear with him in glory. When Christ which is our life shall shew himself, then shall ye also appear with him in glory. When Christ which is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory. When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory.
3:5 Therefore slay your members, which be on the earth, fornication, uncleanness, lechery, evil covetousness, and avarice, which is service of simulacra; Mortify therefore your members which are on the earth, fornication, uncleanness, unnatural lust, evil concupiscence, and covetousness which is worshipping of idols: Mortify therefore your members which are on the earth, fornication, uncleanness, the inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, & covetousness which is idolatry. Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth: fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry:
3:6 for which things the wrath of God came on the sons of unbelief; for which things’ sakes the wrath of god falleth on the children of unbelief. For the which things’ sakes the wrath of God cometh on the children of disobedience. For which things’ sake, the wrath of God cometh on the children of disobedience,
3:7 in which also ye walked some time, when ye lived in them. In which things ye walked once, when ye lived in them. Wherein ye also walked once, when ye lived in them. In the which ye also walked sometime, when ye lived in them.
3:8 But now and ye put away all things, wrath, indignation, malice, blasphemy, foul word of your mouth. But now put ye also away from you all things, wrath, fierceness, maliciousness, cursed speaking, filthy speaking out of your mouths. But now put ye away even all these things, wrath, anger, maliciousness, cursed speaking, filthy speaking, out of your mouth. But now you also put off all these, anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy communication out of your mouth.
3:9 Do not ye lie together, spoiling the old man with his deeds, Lie not one to another, seeing that ye have put off the old man with his works, Lie not one to another, seeing that ye have put off the old man with his works, Lie not one to another, seeing that ye have put off the old man with his deeds:
3:10 and clothing the new man, that is made new again into the knowing of God, after the image of him that made him; and have put on the new, which is renewed in knowledge of god, after the image of him that made him, And have put on the new, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him, And have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge, after the image of him that created him,
3:11 where is not male and female, heathen man and Jew, circumcision and prepuce, barbarous and Scythian, bondman and free, but all things and in all things Christ. where is neither greek nor jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarous or Sythian, bond or free: But Christ is all in all things. Where is neither Grecian nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond, free: but Christ is all and in all things. Where there is neither Greek, nor Jew, circumcision, nor uncircumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond, nor free: but Christ is all, and in all.
3:12 Therefore clothe ye you, as the chosen of God, holy, and loved, with the entrails of mercy, benignity, and meekness, temperance, patience; Now therefore as elect of god, holy and beloved, put on tender mercy, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, long suffering, Now therefore as the elect of God holy & beloved, put on tender mercy, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, long suffering: Put on therefore (as the elect of God, holy and beloved) bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, long suffering,
3:13 supporting, and forgiving to yourselves, if any man against any hath quarrel, as and the Lord Christ forgave to you, so and ye. forbearing one another, and forgiving one another (if any man have a quarrel to another) even as Christ forgave you, even so do ye. Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel to another: even as Christ forgave you, even so do ye. Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye.
3:14 And upon all these things have ye charity, that is the bond of perfection. Above all these things put on love, which is the bond of perfectness, And above all these things put on love, which is the bond of perfectness. And above all these things put on charity, which is the bond of perfectness.
3:15 And the peace of Christ enjoy in your hearts, in which ye be called in one body, and be ye kind. and the peace of god rule in your hearts, to the which peace ye are called in one body: and see that ye be thankful. And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which ye are called in one body, and be ye amiable. And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body: and be ye thankful.
3:16 The word of Christ dwell in you plenteously, in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing yourselves in psalms, and hymns, and spiritual songs, in grace singing in your hearts to the Lord. Let the word of god dwell in you plenteously in all wisdom. Teach and exhort your own selves, in psalms, and hymns, and spiritual songs which have favour with them, singing in your hearts to the lord. Let the word of Christ dwell in you plenteously in all wisdom, teaching & admonishing your own selves, in psalms, and hymns, and spiritual songs, singing with a grace in your hearts to the Lord. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another in Psalms, and Hymns, and Spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.
3:17 All thing, whatever ye do, in word or deed, all things in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, doing thankings to God the Father by him. And all things (whatsoever ye do in word or deed) do in the name of the lord Jesus, giving thanks to god the father by him. And whatsoever ye shall do, in word or deed, do all in the Name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God even the Father by him. And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the Name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father, by him.
3:18 Women, be ye subject to your husbands, as it behooveth in the Lord. Wives submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as it is comely in the lord. Wives, submit yourselves unto your husbands, as it is comely in the Lord. Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as it is fit in the Lord.

3:21 Fathers, do not ye provoke your sons to indignation, that they be not made feeble-hearted. Fathers rate not your children, lest they be of a desperate mind. Fathers, provoke not your children to anger, lest they be discouraged. Fathers, provoke not your children to anger, lest they be discouraged.
3:22 Servants, obey ye by all things to fleshly lords, not serving at eye, as pleasing to men, but in simpleness of heart, dreading the Lord God. Servants be obedient unto your bodily masters in all things: not with eye-service as menpleasers, but in singleness of heart fearing god. Servants, be obedient unto them that are your masters according to the flesh in all things, not with eye-service as menpleasers, but in singleness of heart, fearing God. Servants, obey in all things your masters according to the flesh: not with eye-service as menpleasers, but in singleness of heart, fearing God:

3:24 witting that of the Lord ye shall take reward of heritage. Serve ye to the Lord Christ. remembering that of the lord ye shall receive the reward of inheritance, for ye serve the lord Christ. Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ. Knowing, that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ.
3:25 Forsooth he that doeth injury shall receive that that he did evil; and acceptation of persons is not with God. But he that doeth wrong, shall receive for the wrong that he hath done: for there is no respect of persons. But he that doeth wrong, shall receive for the wrong that he hath done, & there is no respect of persons. But he that doeth wrong, shall receive for the wrong which he hath done: and there is no respect of persons.
