3:1 If then ye were raised together with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated on the right hand of God.
3:2 Set your mind on the things that are above, not on the things that are upon the earth.
3:3 For ye died, and your life is hid with Christ in God.
3:4 When Christ, `who is' our life, shall be manifested, then shall ye also with him be manifested in glory.
3:5 Put to death therefore your members which are upon the earth: fornication, uncleanness, passion, evil desire, and covetousness, which is idolatry;
3:6 for which things' sake cometh the wrath of God upon the sons of disobedience:
3:7 wherein ye also once walked, when ye lived in these things;
3:8 but now do ye also put them all away: anger, wrath, malice, railing, shameful speaking out of your mouth:
3:9 lie not one to another; seeing that ye have put off the old man with his doings,
3:10 and have put on the new man, that is being renewed unto knowledge after the image of him that created him:
3:11 where there cannot be Greek and Jew, circumcision and uncircumcision, barbarian, Scythian, bondman, freeman; but Christ is all, and in all.
3:12 Put on therefore, as God's elect, holy and beloved, a heart of compassion, kindness, lowliness, meekness, longsuffering;
3:13 forbearing one another, and forgiving each other, if any man have a complaint against any; even as the Lord forgave you, so also do ye:
3:14 and above all these things `put on' love, which is the bond of perfectness.
3:15 And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to the which also ye were called in one body; and be ye thankful.
3:16 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 unto God.
3:17 And whatsoever ye do, in word or in deed, `do' all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.
3:18 Wives, be in subjection to your husbands, as is fitting in the Lord.
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 in the Lord.
3:21 Fathers, provoke not your children, that they be not discouraged.
3:22 Servants, obey in all things them that are your masters according to the flesh; not with eye-service, as men-pleasers, but in singleness of heart, fearing the Lord:
3:23 whatsoever ye do, work heartily, as unto the Lord, and not unto men;
3:24 knowing that from the Lord ye shall receive the recompense of the inheritance: ye serve the Lord Christ.
3:25 For he that doeth wrong shall receive again for the wrong that he hath done: and there is no respect of persons.
