Tyndale (TYN) New International Version (NIV)
1 Be ye folowers of god as dere children 1 Be imitators of God, therefore, as dearly loved children
2 and walke in love even as Christ loved vs and gave him silfe for vs an offerynge and a sacrifyce of a swete saver to god. 2 and live a life of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.
3 So that fornicacion and all vnclennes or coveteousnes be not once named amonge you as it be commeth saynctes: 3 But among you there must not be even a hint of sexual immorality, or of any kind of impurity, or of greed, because these are improper for God's holy people.
4 nether filthynes nether folishe talkyng nether gestinge which are not comly: but rather gevynge of thankes 4 Nor should there be obscenity, foolish talk or coarse joking, which are out of place, but rather thanksgiving.
5 For this ye knowe yt no whormonger other vnclene person or coveteous person which is the worshipper of ymages hath eny inheritaunce in the kyngdome of Christ and of God. 5 For of this you can be sure: No immoral, impure or greedy person--such a man is an idolater--has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God.
6 Let no ma deceave you with vayne wordes. For thorow soche thinges cometh the wrath of God vpon the chyldre of vnbelefe. 6 Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of such things God's wrath comes on those who are disobedient.
7 Be not therfore companions with them. 7 Therefore do not be partners with them.
8 Ye were once dercknes but are now light in the Lorde. Walke as chyldren of light. 8 For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of light
9 For the frute of the sprete is in all goodnes rightewesnes and trueth. 9 (for the fruit of the light consists in all goodness, righteousness and truth)
10 Accept that which is pleasinge to the Lorde: 10 and find out what pleases the Lord.
11 and have no fellishippe with the vnfrutfull workes of dercknes: but rather rebuke them. 11 Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them.
12 For it is shame even to name those thinges which are done of them in secrete: 12 For it is shameful even to mention what the disobedient do in secret.
13 but all thinges when they are rebuked of the light are manifest. For whatsoever is manifest that same is light. 13 But everything exposed by the light becomes visible,
14 Wherfore he sayth: awake thou that slepest and stond vp from deeth and Christ shall geve the light. 14 for it is light that makes everything visible. This is why it is said: "Wake up, O sleeper, rise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you."
15 Take hede therfore that ye walke circuspectly: not as foles: but as wyse 15 Be very careful, then, how you live--not as unwise but as wise,
16 redemynge the tyme: for ye dayes are evyll. 16 making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil.
17 Wherfore be ye not vnwyse but vnderstonde what the will of the Lorde is 17 Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the Lord's will is.
18 and be not dronke with wyne wherin is excesse: but be fulfilled with the sprete 18 Do not get drunk on wine, which leads to debauchery. Instead, be filled with the Spirit.
19 speakynge vnto youre selves in psalmes and ymnes and spretuall songes synginge and makinge melodie to ye Lorde in youre hertes 19 Speak to one another with psalms, hymns and spiritual songs. Sing and make music in your heart to the Lord,
20 gevinge thankes all wayes for all thinges vnto God the father in the name of oure Lorde Iesu Christ: 20 always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
21 submittinge youre selves one to another in the feare of God. 21 Submit to one another out of reverence for Christ.
22 Wemen submit youre selves vnto youre awne husbandes as vnto the Lorde. 22 Wives, submit to your husbands as to the Lord.
23 For the husbande is the wyves heed even as Christ is the heed of the congregacion and the same is the saveoure of the body. 23 For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body, of which he is the Savior.
24 Therfore as the cogregacion is in subieccion to Christ lykwyse let the wyves be in subieccion to their husbandes in all thinges. 24 Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit to their husbands in everything.
25 Husbandes love youre wyves even as Christ loved the congregacion and gave him silfe for it 25 Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her
26 to sanctifie it and clensed it in the fountayne of water thorow the worde 26 to make her holy, cleansing her by the washing with water through the word,
27 to make it vnto him selfe a glorious congregacion with oute spot or wrynckle or eny soche thinge: but that it shuld be holy and with out blame. 27 and to present her to himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless.
28 So ought men to love their wyves as their awne bodyes. He that loveth his wyfe loveth him sylfe. 28 In this same way, husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself.
29 For no ma ever yet hated his awne flesshe: but norissheth and cherisseth it even as the lorde doth the congregacion. 29 After all, no one ever hated his own body, but he feeds and cares for it, just as Christ does the church--
30 For we are members of his body of his flesshe and of his bones. 30 for we are members of his body.
31 For this cause shall a man leave father and mother and shall cotinue with his wyfe and two shalbe made one flesshe. 31 "For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh."
32 This is a great secrete but I speake bitwene Christ and the cogregacion. 32 This is a profound mystery--but I am talking about Christ and the church.
33 Neverthelesse do ye so that every one of you love his wyfe truely even as him silfe. And let ye wyfe se that she feare her husbade. 33 However, each one of you also must love his wife as he loves himself, and the wife must respect her husband.
