and 1give no opportunity to the devil.
Let the thief no longer steal, but rather 2let him labor, 3doing honest work with his own hands, so 4that he may have something to share with anyone in need.
295Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give 6grace to those who hear.
And 7do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, 8by whom you were sealed for the day of 9redemption.
3110Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you, along with all malice.
3211Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, 12forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.
