Wycliffe (WYC) New International Version (NIV)
1 Therefore be ye followers of God, as most dear-worthy sons; 1 Be imitators of God, therefore, as dearly loved children
2 and walk ye in love, as [and] Christ loved us, and gave himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God, into the odour of sweetness. 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 And fornication, and all uncleanness, or avarice, be not named among you, as it becometh holy men; 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 either filth, or folly speech, or buffoonery [or harlotry], that pertaineth not to profit, but more rather doing of thankings [but more doing of thankings]. 4 Nor should there be obscenity, foolish talk or coarse joking, which are out of place, but rather thanksgiving.
5 For know ye this, and understand, that each lecher, or unclean man, or covetous [man], that serveth to maumets [+Forsooth this thing know ye, understanding that each fornicator, or unclean man, or avarice man, that is serving of idols, or maumets], hath not heritage in the kingdom 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 No man deceive you by vain words; for why for these things the wrath of God came upon the sons of unbelief. 6 Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of such things God's wrath comes on those who are disobedient.
