Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.13
For you died,2 and your life is now hidden with Christ in God.
When Christ, who is youra life,3 appears,4 then you also will appear with him in glory.55
Put to death,6 therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature:7 sexual immorality,8 impurity, lust, evil desires and greed,9 which is idolatry.106
Because of these, the wrath of God11 is coming.b7
You used to walk in these ways, in the life you once lived.128
But now you must rid yourselves13 of all such things as these: anger, rage, malice, slander,14 and filthy language from your lips.159
Do not lie to each other,16 since you have taken off your old self17 with its practices
and have put on the new self,18 which is being renewed19 in knowledge in the image of its Creator.2011
Here there is no Greek or Jew,21 circumcised or uncircumcised,22 barbarian, Scythian, slave or free,23 but Christ is all,24 and is in all.
Therefore, as God's chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves25 with compassion, kindness, humility,26 gentleness and patience.27
