Ephesians 5

YLT 1 Become, then, followers of God, as children beloved, NIV 1 Be imitators of God, therefore, as dearly loved children YLT 2 and walk in love, as also the Christ did love us, and did give himself for us, an offering and a sacrifice to God for an odour of a sweet smell, NIV 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. YLT 3 and whoredom, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not even be named among you, as becometh saints; NIV 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. YLT 4 also filthiness, and foolish talking, or jesting, -- the things not fit -- but rather thanksgiving; NIV 4 Nor should there be obscenity, foolish talk or coarse joking, which are out of place, but rather thanksgiving. YLT 5 for this ye know, that every whoremonger, or unclean, or covetous person, who is an idolater, hath no inheritance in the reign of the Christ and God. NIV 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. YLT 6 Let no one deceive you with vain words, for because of these things cometh the anger of God upon the sons of the disobedience, NIV 6 Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of such things God's wrath comes on those who are disobedient. YLT 7 become not, then, partakers with them, NIV 7 Therefore do not be partners with them. YLT 8 for ye were once darkness, and now light in the Lord; as children of light walk ye, NIV 8 For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of light YLT 9 for the fruit of the Spirit [is] in all goodness, and righteousness, and truth, NIV 9 (for the fruit of the light consists in all goodness, righteousness and truth) YLT 10 proving what is well-pleasing to the Lord, NIV 10 and find out what pleases the Lord. YLT 11 and have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of the darkness and rather even convict, NIV 11 Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them. YLT 12 for the things in secret done by them it is a shame even to speak of, NIV 12 For it is shameful even to mention what the disobedient do in secret. YLT 13 and all the things reproved by the light are manifested, for everything that is manifested is light; NIV 13 But everything exposed by the light becomes visible, YLT 14 wherefore he saith, `Arouse thyself, thou who art sleeping, and arise out of the dead, and the Christ shall shine upon thee.' NIV 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." YLT 15 See, then, how exactly ye walk, not as unwise, but as wise, NIV 15 Be very careful, then, how you live--not as unwise but as wise, YLT 16 redeeming the time, because the days are evil; NIV 16 making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil. YLT 17 because of this become not fools, but -- understanding what [is] the will of the Lord, NIV 17 Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the Lord's will is. YLT 18 and be not drunk with wine, in which is dissoluteness, but be filled in the Spirit, NIV 18 Do not get drunk on wine, which leads to debauchery. Instead, be filled with the Spirit. YLT 19 speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord, NIV 19 Speak to one another with psalms, hymns and spiritual songs. Sing and make music in your heart to the Lord, YLT 20 giving thanks always for all things, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, to the God and Father; NIV 20 always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. YLT 21 subjecting yourselves to one another in the fear of God. NIV 21 Submit to one another out of reverence for Christ. YLT 22 The wives! to your own husbands subject yourselves, as to the Lord, NIV 22 Wives, submit to your husbands as to the Lord. YLT 23 because the husband is head of the wife, as also the Christ [is] head of the assembly, and he is saviour of the body, NIV 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. YLT 24 but even as the assembly is subject to Christ, so also [are] the wives to their own husbands in everything. NIV 24 Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit to their husbands in everything. YLT 25 The husbands! love your own wives, as also the Christ did love the assembly, and did give himself for it, NIV 25 Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her YLT 26 that he might sanctify it, having cleansed [it] with the bathing of the water in the saying, NIV 26 to make her holy, cleansing her by the washing with water through the word, YLT 27 that he might present it to himself the assembly in glory, not having spot or wrinkle, or any of such things, but that it may be holy and unblemished; NIV 27 and to present her to himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless. YLT 28 so ought the husbands to love their own wives as their own bodies: he who is loving his own wife -- himself he doth love; NIV 28 In this same way, husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself. YLT 29 for no one ever his own flesh did hate, but doth nourish and cherish it, as also the Lord -- the assembly, NIV 29 After all, no one ever hated his own body, but he feeds and cares for it, just as Christ does the church-- YLT 30 because members we are of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones; NIV 30 for we are members of his body. YLT 31 `for this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined to his wife, and they shall be -- the two -- for one flesh;' NIV 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." YLT 32 this secret is great, and I speak in regard to Christ and to the assembly; NIV 32 This is a profound mystery--but I am talking about Christ and the church. YLT 33 but ye also, every one in particular -- let each his own wife so love as himself, and the wife -- that she may reverence the husband. NIV 33 However, each one of you also must love his wife as he loves himself, and the wife must respect her husband.
