Holman Christian Standard (CSB) New International Version (NIV)
1 Therefore, be imitators of God, as dearly loved children. 1 Be imitators of God, therefore, as dearly loved children
2 And walk in love, as the Messiah also loved us and gave Himself for us, a sacrificial and fragrant offering 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 But sexual immorality and any impurity or greed should not even be heard of among you, as is proper for saints. 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 And coarse and foolish talking or crude joking are not suitable, but rather giving thanks. 4 Nor should there be obscenity, foolish talk or coarse joking, which are out of place, but rather thanksgiving.
5 For know and recognize this: no sexually immoral or impure or greedy person, who is an idolater, has an inheritance in the kingdom of the Messiah 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 one deceive you with empty arguments, for because of these things God's wrath is coming on the disobedient. 6 Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of such things God's wrath comes on those who are disobedient.
