Therefore, as God's chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves1 with compassion, kindness, humility,2 gentleness and patience.313
Bear with each other4 and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.514
And over all these virtues put on love,6 which binds them all together in perfect unity.715
Let the peace of Christ8 rule in your hearts, since as members of one body9 you were called to peace.10 And be thankful.
Let the word of Christ11 dwell in you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom,12 and as you sing psalms,13 hymns and spiritual songs with gratitude in your hearts to God.1417
And whatever you do,15 whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks16 to God the Father through him.
