NAS 1 Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children; NIV 1 Be imitators of God, therefore, as dearly loved children NAS 2 and walk in love, just as Christ also loved you and gave Himself up for us, an offering and a sacrifice to God as a fragrant aroma. 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. NAS 3 But immorality or any impurity or greed must not even be named among you, as is proper among 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. NAS 4 and there must be no filthiness and silly talk, or coarse jesting, which are not fitting, but rather giving of thanks. NIV 4 Nor should there be obscenity, foolish talk or coarse joking, which are out of place, but rather thanksgiving. NAS 5 For this you know with certainty, that no immoral or impure person or covetous man, who is an idolater, has an inheritance in the kingdom of 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. NAS 6 Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of these things the wrath of God comes upon the sons of 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.
