New King James Version (NKJV) New International Version (NIV)
1 If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God. 1 Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God.
2 Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth. 2 Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.
3 For you died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. 3 For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God.
4 When Christ who is our life appears, then you also will appear with Him in glory. 4 When Christ, who is your life, appears, then you also will appear with him in glory.
5 Therefore put to death your members which are on the earth: fornication, uncleanness, passion, evil desire, and covetousness, which is idolatry. 5 Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature: sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires and greed, which is idolatry.
6 Because of these things the wrath of God is coming upon the sons of disobedience, 6 Because of these, the wrath of God is coming.
7 in which you yourselves once walked when you lived in them. 7 You used to walk in these ways, in the life you once lived.
8 But now you yourselves are to put off all these: anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy language out of your mouth. 8 But now you must rid yourselves of all such things as these: anger, rage, malice, slander, and filthy language from your lips.
9 Do not lie to one another, since you have put off the old man with his deeds, 9 Do not lie to each other, since you have taken off your old self with its practices
10 and have put on the new man who is renewed in knowledge according to the image of Him who created him, 10 and have put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge in the image of its Creator.
