Colossians 3

3:1 If ye then be risen with the Messiah, seek those things which are above, where the Messiah sitteth on the right hand of .

3:2 Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.

3:3 For ye are dead, and your life is hid with the Messiah in .

3:4 When the Messiah, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory.

3:5 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' sake the wrath of cometh on the children of disobedience:

3:7 In the which ye also walked some time, when ye lived in them.

3:8 But now ye also put off all these; anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy communication out of your mouth.

3:9 Lie not one to another, seeing that ye have put off the old man with his deeds;

3:10 And have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him:

3:11 Where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond nor free: but the Messiah is all, and in all.

3:12 Put on therefore, as the elect of , set-apart and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering;

3:13 Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as the Messiah forgave you, so also do ye.

3:14 And above all these things put on charity, which is the bond of perfectness.

3:15 And let the peace of Elohim rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful.

3:16 Let the word of the Messiah dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with favour in your hearts to the Master.

3:17 And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Master , giving thanks to the Father by him.

3:18 Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as it is fit in the Master.

3:19 Husbands, love your wives, and be not bitter against them.

3:20 Children, obey your parents in all things: for this is well pleasing unto .

3:21 Fathers, provoke not your children to anger, lest they be discouraged.

3:22 Servants, obey in all things your masters according to the flesh; not with eyeservice, as menpleasers; but in singleness of heart, fearing :

3:23 And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to , and not unto men;

3:24 Knowing that of ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Messiah.

3:25 But he that doeth wrong shall receive for the wrong which he hath done: and there is no respect of persons.
