nkjv@Ephesians:5:1 @ Therefore be imitators of God as dear children.
nkjv@Ephesians:5:2 @ And walk in love, as Christ also has loved us and given Himself for us, an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet-smelling aroma.
nkjv@Ephesians:5:3 @ But fornication and all uncleanness or covetousness, let it not even be named among you, as is fitting for saints;
nkjv@Ephesians:5:4 @ neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor coarse jesting, which are not fitting, but rather giving of thanks.
nkjv@Ephesians:5:5 @ For this you know, that no fornicator, unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and God.
nkjv@Ephesians:5:6 @ Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of these things the wrath of God comes upon the sons of disobedience.
nkjv@Ephesians:5:7 @ Therefore do not be partakers with them.
nkjv@Ephesians:5:8 @ For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light
nkjv@Ephesians:5:9 @ (for the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness, righteousness, and truth),
nkjv@Ephesians:5:10 @ finding out what is acceptable to the Lord.
nkjv@Ephesians:5:11 @ And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them.
nkjv@Ephesians:5:12 @ For it is shameful even to speak of those things which are done by them in secret.
nkjv@Ephesians:5:13 @ But all things that are exposed are made manifest by the light, for whatever makes manifest is light.
nkjv@Ephesians:5:14 @ Therefore He says: "Awake, you who sleep, Arise from the dead, And Christ will give you light."
nkjv@Ephesians:5:15 @ See then that you walk circumspectly, not as fools but as wise,
nkjv@Ephesians:5:16 @ redeeming the time, because the days are evil.
nkjv@Ephesians:5:17 @ Therefore do not be unwise, but understand what the will of the Lord is.
nkjv@Ephesians:5:18 @ And do not be drunk with wine, in which is dissipation; but be filled with the Spirit,
nkjv@Ephesians:5:19 @ speaking to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord,
nkjv@Ephesians:5:20 @ giving thanks always for all things to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ,
nkjv@Ephesians:5:21 @ submitting to one another in the fear of God.
nkjv@Ephesians:5:22 @ Wives, submit to your own husbands, as to the Lord.
nkjv@Ephesians:5:23 @ For the husband is head of the wife, as also Christ is head of the church; and He is the Savior of the body.
nkjv@Ephesians:5:24 @ Therefore, just as the church is subject to Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in everything.
nkjv@Ephesians:5:25 @ Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself for her,
nkjv@Ephesians:5:26 @ that He might sanctify and cleanse her with the washing of water by the word,
nkjv@Ephesians:5:27 @ that He might present her to Himself a glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing, but that she should be holy and without blemish.
nkjv@Ephesians:5:28 @ So husbands ought to love their own wives as their own bodies; he who loves his wife loves himself.
nkjv@Ephesians:5:29 @ For no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as the Lord does the church.
nkjv@Ephesians:5:30 @ For we are members of His body, of His flesh and of His bones.
nkjv@Ephesians:5:31 @ "For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh."
nkjv@Ephesians:5:32 @ This is a great mystery, but I speak concerning Christ and the church.
nkjv@Ephesians:5:33 @ Nevertheless let each one of you in particular so love his own wife as himself, and let the wife see that she respects her husband.
