Colossians 3:4-14 (New International Version)

View In My Bible
4 When Christ, who is youra life,1 appears,2 then you also will appear with him in glory.3 5 Put to death,4 therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature:5 sexual immorality,6 impurity, lust, evil desires and greed,7 which is idolatry.8 6 Because of these, the wrath of God9 is coming.b 7 You used to walk in these ways, in the life you once lived.10 8 But now you must rid yourselves11 of all such things as these: anger, rage, malice, slander,12 and filthy language from your lips.13 9 Do not lie to each other,14 since you have taken off your old self15 with its practices 10 and have put on the new self,16 which is being renewed17 in knowledge in the image of its Creator.18 11 Here there is no Greek or Jew,19 circumcised or uncircumcised,20 barbarian, Scythian, slave or free,21 but Christ is all,22 and is in all. 12 Therefore, as God's chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves23 with compassion, kindness, humility,24 gentleness and patience.25 13 Bear with each other26 and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.27 14 And over all these virtues put on love,28 which binds them all together in perfect unity.29
