Ephesians 4:27-32 NRS

27 and do not make room for the devil.
28 Thieves must give up stealing; rather let them labor and work honestly with their own hands, so as to have something to share with the needy.
29 Let no evil talk come out of your mouths, but only what is useful for building up, a as there is need, so that your words may give grace to those who hear.
