1 Igitur, si conresurrexistis Chri sto, quae sursum sunt quaerite, ubi Christus est in dextera Dei sedens;
2 quae sursum sunt sapite, non quae supra terram.
3 Mortui enim estis, et vita vestra abscondita est cum Christo in Deo!
4 Cum Christus apparuerit, vita vestra, tunc et vos apparebitis cum ipso in gloria.
5 Mortificate ergo membra, quae sunt super terram: fornicationem, immunditiam, libidinem, concupiscentiam malam et avaritiam, quae est simulacrorum servitus,
6 propter quae venit ira Dei super filios incredulitatis;
7 in quibus et vos ambulastis aliquando, cum viveretis in illis.
8 Nunc autem deponite et vos omnia: iram, indignationem, malitiam, blasphemiam, turpem sermonem de ore vestro;
9 nolite mentiri invicem, qui exuistis vos veterem hominem cum actibus eius
10 et induistis novum, eum, qui renovatur in agnitionem secundum imaginem eius, qui creavit eum,
11 ubi non est Graecus et Iudaeus, circumcisio et praeputium, barbarus, Scytha, servus, liber, sed omnia et in omnibus Christus.
12 Induite vos ergo, sicut electi Dei, sancti et dilecti, viscera misericordiae, benignitatem, humilitatem, mansuetudinem, longanimitatem,
13 supportantes invicem et donantes vobis ipsis, si quis adversus aliquem habet querelam; sicut et Dominus donavit vobis, ita et vos;
14 super omnia autem haec: caritatem, quod est vinculum perfectionis.
15 Et pax Christi dominetur in cordibus vestris, ad quam et vocati estis in uno corpore. Et grati estote.
16 Verbum Christi habitet in vobis abundanter, in omni sapientia docentes et commonentes vosmetipsos psalmis, hymnis, canticis spiritalibus, in gratia cantantes in cordibus vestris Deo;
17 et omne, quodcumque facitis in verbo aut in opere, omnia in nomine Domini Iesu gratias agentes Deo Patri per ipsum.
18 Mulieres, subditae estote viris, sicut oportet in Domino.
19 Viri, diligite uxores et nolite amari esse ad illas.
20 Filii, oboedite parentibus per omnia; hoc enim placitum est in Domino.
21 Patres, nolite ad indignationem provocare filios vestros, ut non pusillo animo fiant.
22 Servi, oboedite per omnia dominis carnalibus, non ad oculum servientes, quasi hominibus placentes, sed in simplicitate cordis, timentes Dominum.
23 Quodcumque facitis, ex animo operamini sicut Domino et non hominibus,
24 scientes quod a Domino accipietis retributionem hereditatis. Domino Christo servite;
25 qui enim iniuriam facit, recipiet id quod inique gessit, et non est personarum acceptio.
King James Version
1 If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God.
2 Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.
3 For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God.
4 When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory.
5 Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry:
6 For which things' sake the wrath of God cometh on the children of disobedience:
7 In the which ye also walked some time, when ye lived in them.
8 But now ye also put off all these; anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy communication out of your mouth.
9 Lie not one to another, seeing that ye have put off the old man with his deeds;
10 And have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him:
11 Where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond nor free: but Christ is all, and in all.
12 Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering;
13 Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye.
14 And above all these things put on charity, which is the bond of perfectness.
15 And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful.
16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.
17 And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.
18 Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as it is fit in the Lord.
19 Husbands, love your wives, and be not bitter against them.
20 Children, obey your parents in all things: for this is well pleasing unto the Lord.
21 Fathers, provoke not your children to anger, lest they be discouraged.
22 Servants, obey in all things your masters according to the flesh; not with eyeservice, as menpleasers; but in singleness of heart, fearing God:
23 And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men;
24 Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ.
25 But he that doeth wrong shall receive for the wrong which he hath done: and there is no respect of persons.
