1 Therefore I, the prisoner united with the Lord, beg you to lead a life worthy of the calling to which you have been called.
2 Always be humble, gentle and patient, bearing with one another in love,
3 and making every effort to preserve the unity the Spirit gives through the binding power of shalom.
4 There is one body and one Spirit, just as when you were called you were called to one hope.
5 And there is one Lord, one trust, one immersion,
6 and one God, the Father of all, who rules over all, works through all and is in all.
