Chapter 5

Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children;

And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweetsmelling savour.
love 1st Cor 8:1, 1st Cor 13:1, 1st Thess 3:6, 2nd Thess 1:3, 1st Tim 2:15, 1st Tim 4:12, 2nd Tim 2:22, 2nd Tim 3:10, 2nd Pet 1:7, 3rd John 6, Jude 12, Rev 2:19

But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named among you, as becometh saints;
uncleanness Matt 23:27, Rom 1:24, Rom 6:19, 2nd Cor 6:17, 2nd Cor 12:21, Gal 5:19, Eph 4:19, Eph 5:5, Col 3:5, 1st Thess 4:7
named 1st Cor 5:1

Neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor jesting, which are not convenient: but rather giving of thanks.
talking Matt 12:36

For this ye know, that no whoremonger, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, hath any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God.
uncleanness Matt 23:27, Rom 1:24, Rom 6:19, 2nd Cor 6:17, 2nd Cor 12:21, Gal 5:19, Eph 4:19, Eph 5:3, Col 3:5, 1st Thess 4:7

Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience.
man Deut 13:3, Jer 23:16, Matt 7:15, Rom 16:17, Col 2:8, 2nd Pet 2:1, 1st John 4:1

Be not ye therefore partakers with them.

For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light:

(For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth;)

Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord.

And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.

For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret.

But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the light: for whatsoever doth make manifest is light.

Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light.
Awake Isa 60:1,2, Isa 9:2, Isa 42:7, Matt 4:16, Luke 2:32

See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise,
wise Matt 10:16, Romans 16:19, 1st Cor 14:20

Redeeming the time, because the days are evil.

Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is.

And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit;
drunk Gen 9:21, Gen 19:32, Prov 20:1

Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord;

Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ;

Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God.

Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord.

For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body.
head 1st Cor 11:3
body 1st Cor 6:13

Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing.

Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;

That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word,

That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.

So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself.

For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church:
Lord Matt 25:1, Rev 19:7, Rev 21:2, Rev 21:9

For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones.
members John 17:21, 1st Cor 6:17, Eph 4:4

For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh.
For Gen 2:24, Matt 19:5, Mark 10:7, 1st Cor 6:16

This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church.

Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and the wife see that she reverence her husband.
