View In My Bible
9 1Do not lie to one another, seeing that 2you have put off 3the old selfa with its practices 10 and 4have put on 5the new self, 6which is being renewed in knowledge 7after the image of 8its creator. 11 9Here there is not Greek and Jew, circumcised and uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave,b free; but Christ is 10all, and in all. 12 11Put on then, as 12God's chosen ones, holy and beloved, 13compassionate hearts, 14kindness, 15humility, meekness, and patience, 13 16bearing with one another and, 17if one has a complaint against another, 18forgiving each other; 19as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive. 14 And above all these put on 20love, which 21binds everything together in 22perfect harmony. 15 And let 23the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called 24in one body. And 25be thankful. 16 Let 26the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, 27singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, 28with thankfulness in your hearts to God. 17 And 29whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, 30giving thanks to God the Father through him.
