5:1 Therefore be ye followers of God, as most dear-worthy sons; Be ye counterfeiters of god as dear children, Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children, Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children.
5:2 and walk ye in love, as and Christ loved us, and gave himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God, into the odour of sweetness. and walk in love even as Christ loved us, and gave himself for us, an offering and a sacrifice of a sweet savour to god. And walk in love, even as Christ hath loved us, and hath given himself for us, to be an offering and a sacrifice of a sweet smelling savour to God. 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 savour;
5:3 And fornication, and all uncleanness, or avarice, be not named among you, as it becometh holy men; So that fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, be not once, named among you, as it becometh saints: But fornication, & all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named among you, as it becometh Saints, But fornication and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named amongst you, as becometh Saints:
5:4 either filth, or folly speech, or harlotry, that pertaineth not to profit, but more doing of thankings. neither filthiness, neither foolish talking, neither jesting, which are not comely: but rather giving of thanks. Neither filthiness, neither foolish talking, neither jesting, which are things not comely, but rather giving of thanks. Neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor jesting, which are not convenient: but rather giving of thanks.
5:5 Forsooth this thing know ye, understanding that each fornicator, or unclean man, or avarice man, that is serving of idols, hath not heritage in the kingdom of Christ and of God. For this ye know, that no whoremonger, other unclean person, or covetous person (which is the worshipper of images) hath any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ, and of god. For this ye know, that no whoremonger, neither unclean person, nor covetous person, which is an idolator, hath any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ, & of God. 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.
5:6 No man deceive you by vain words; for why for these things the wrath of God came upon the sons of unbelief. Let no man deceive you with vain words. For through such things cometh the wrath of god upon the children of unbelief. Let no man deceive you with vain words: for for such things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience. 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 Therefore do not ye be made partners of them. Be not therefore companions with them. Be not therefore companions with them. Be not ye therefore partakers with them.
5:8 For ye were sometime darknesses, but now ye be light in the Lord. Walk as the sons of light. Ye were once darkness, but are now light in the lord. Walk as Children of light. For ye were once darkness, but are now light in the Lord: walk as children of light, For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light,
5:9 For the fruit of light is in all goodness, and rightwiseness, and truth. For the fruit of the spirit is, in all goodness, rightwiseness, and truth. (For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness, and righteousness, and truth) (For the fruit of the spirit is in all goodness and righteousness & truth.)
5:10 Proving what is well pleasing to God. Accept that which is pleasing to the lord: Approving that which is pleasing to the Lord. Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord:
5:11 And do not ye commune to unfruitous works of darknesses; but more rather reprove ye them. and have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness: but rather rebuke them. And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but even reprove them rather. And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.
5:12 For what things be done of them in privy, it is foul, yea, to speak. For it is shame even to name those things which are done of them in secret: For it is shame even to speak of the things, which are done of them in secret. For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret.
5:13 Forsooth all things that be reproved of the light, be made open; forsooth all things that is made open, is light. but all things, when they are rebuked of the light, are manifest. For whatsoever is manifest, that same is light. But all things when they are reproved of the light, are manifest: for it is light that maketh all things manifest. But all things that are reproved, are made manifest by the light: for whatsoever doth make manifest, is light.
5:14 For which thing he saith, Rise thou that sleepest, and rise up from dead, and Christ shall illumine thee. Wherefore he saith: awake thou that sleepest, and stand up from death, and Christ shall give thee light. Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, & stand up from the dead, & Christ shall give thee light. Wherefore he saith: Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light.
5:15 Therefore, brethren, see ye, how warily ye shall go; not as unwise men, but as wise men, Take heed therefore that ye walk circumspectly: not as fools: but as wise, Take heed therefore that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise,
5:16 again-buying the time, for the days be evil. redeeming the time: for the days are evil: Redeeming the time: for the days are evil. Redeeming the time, because the days are evil.
5:17 Therefore do not ye be made unwise, but understanding which is the will of the Lord. wherefore, be ye not unwise, but understand what the will of the lord is, Wherefore, be ye not unwise, but understand what the will of the Lord is. Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is.
5:18 And do not ye be drunk of wine, in which is luxury, but be ye filled with the Holy Ghost; and be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess: but be fulfilled with the spirit, And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess: but be fulfilled with the Spirit, And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess: but be filled with the Spirit:
5:19 speaking to yourselves in psalms, and hymns, and spiritual songs, singing and saying psalm in your heart to the Lord; speaking unto yourselves in psalms, and hymns, and spiritual songs, singing and playing to the lord in your hearts, Speaking unto yourselves in psalms, and hymns, and spiritual songs, singing, and making melody to the Lord in your hearts, Speaking to yourselves, in Psalms, and Hymns, and Spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord,
5:20 evermore doing thankings for all things in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ to God and the Father. giving thanks always for all things in the name of our lord Jesus Christ to god the father: Giving thanks always for all things unto God even the Father, in the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ, Giving thanks always for all things unto God, and the Father, in the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ,
5:21 Be ye subject together in the dread of Christ. submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of god. Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God. Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God.
5:22 Women, be they subject to their husbands, as to the Lord, Women submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the lord: Wives, submit yourselves unto your husbands, as unto the Lord. Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord.
5:23 for the man is head of the woman, as Christ is head of the church; he is Saviour of his body. For the husband is the wife’s head, even as Christ is the head of the congregation, and the same is the saviour of the body. For the husband is the wife’s head, even as Christ is the head of the Church, & the same is the saviour of his body. 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.
5:24 But as the church is subject to Christ, so and women to their husbands in all things. Therefore as the congregation is in subjection to Christ, likewise let the wives be in subjection to their husbands in all things. Therefore as the Church is in subjection to Christ, even so let the wives be to their husbands in every thing. Therefore as the Church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing.
5:25 Men, love ye your wives, as and Christ loved the church, and gave himself for it, Husbands love your wives, even as Christ loved the congregation, and gave himself for it, Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ loved the Church, & gave himself for it, Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the Church, and gave himself for it:
5:26 that he should make it holy; cleansing it with the washing of water, in the word of life, to sanctify it, and cleansed it in the fountain of water through the word, That he might sanctify it, & cleanse it by the washing of water through the word, That he might sanctify & cleanse it with the washing of water, by the word,
5:27 that he should give the church glorious to himself, not having wem, or wrinkle, or any such thing, but that it be holy and undefouled. to make it unto himself, a glorious congregation without spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing: but that it should be holy and without blame. That he might make it unto himself a glorious Church, not having spot or wrinkle, or any such thing: but that it should be holy and without blame. 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 and men shall love their wives, as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife, loveth himself; So ought men to love their wives, as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife, loveth himself. So ought men to love their wives, as their own bodies: he that loveth his wife, loveth himself. So ought men to love their wives, as their own bodies: he that loveth his wife, loveth himself.
5:29 for no man hated ever his own flesh, but nourisheth and fostereth it, as and Christ doeth the church. For no man ever yet, hated his own flesh: But nourisheth, and cherisheth it: even as the lord doth the congregation: For no man ever yet hated his own flesh, but nourisheth & cherisheth it, even as the Lord doth the Church. For no man ever yet hated his own flesh: but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the Church:
5:30 For we be members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones. for we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones. For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones. For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones.
5:31 For this thing a man shall forsake his father and mother, and he shall cleave to his wife; and they shall be two in one flesh. For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall continue with his wife, and two shall be made one flesh. For this cause shall a man leave father & mother, & shall cleave to his wife, & they twain shall be one flesh. 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.
5:32 This sacrament is great; yea, I say in Christ, and in the church. This is a great secret, but I speak between Christ and the congregation. This is a great secret, but I speak concerning Christ, & concerning the Church. This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the Church.
5:33 Nevertheless ye all, each man love his wife as himself; and the wife dread her husband. Nevertheless do ye so that every one of you love his wife truly even as himself: And let the wife see that she fear her husband. Therefore every one of you, do ye so: let every one love his wife, even as himself, & let the wife see that she fear her husband. Nevertheless, let every one of you in particular, so love his wife even as himself, and the wife see that she reverence her husband.
