Colossians 3 (asv)
Colossians 3 (asv)
3:1If then ye were raised together with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated on the right hand of God. 3:2Set your mind on the things that are above, not on the things that are upon the earth. 3:3For ye died, and your life is hid with Christ in God. 3:4When Christ, who is our life, shall be manifested, then shall ye also with him be manifested in glory. 3:5Put to death therefore your members which are upon the earth: fornication, uncleanness, passion, evil desire, and covetousness, which is idolatry; 3:6for which things' sake cometh the wrath of God upon the sons of disobedience: 3:7wherein ye also once walked, when ye lived in these things; 3:8but now do ye also put them all away: anger, wrath, malice, railing, shameful speaking out of your mouth:3:9lie not one to another; seeing that ye have put off the old man with his doings, 3:10and have put on the new man, that is being renewed unto knowledge after the image of him that created him: 3:11where there cannot be Greek and Jew, circumcision and uncircumcision, barbarian, Scythian, bondman, freeman; but Christ is all, and in all. 3:12Put on therefore, as God's elect, holy and beloved, a heart of compassion, kindness, lowliness, meekness, longsuffering; 3:13forbearing one another, and forgiving each other, if any man have a complaint against any; even as the Lord forgave you, so also do ye: 3:14and above all these things put on love, which is the bond of perfectness. 3:15And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to the which also ye were called in one body; and be ye thankful. 3:16Let 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. 3:17And 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. 3:18Wives, be in subjection to your husbands, as is fitting in the Lord. 3:19Husbands, love your wives, and be not bitter against them. 3:20Children, obey your parents in all things, for this is well-pleasing in the Lord. 3:21Fathers, provoke not your children, that they be not discouraged. 3:22Servants, 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: 3:23whatsoever ye do, work heartily, as unto the Lord, and not unto men; 3:24knowing that from the Lord ye shall receive the recompense of the inheritance: ye serve the Lord Christ. 3:25For he that doeth wrong shall receive again for the wrong that he hath done: and there is no respect of persons.
