Ephesians 5 – KJV (King James Version)

5:1
Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children;

5:2
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.

5:3
But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named among you, as becometh saints;

5:4
Neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor jesting, which are not convenient: but rather giving of thanks.

5:5
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.

5:6
Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience.

5:7
Be not ye therefore partakers with them.

5:8
For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light:

5:9
(For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth;)

5:10
Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord.

5:11
And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.

5:12
For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret.

5:13
But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the light: for whatsoever doth make manifest is light.

5:14
Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light.

5:15
See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise,

5:16
Redeeming the time, because the days are evil.

5:17
Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is.

5:18
And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit;

5:19
Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord;

5:20
Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ;

5:21
Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God.

5:22
Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord.

5:23
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.

5:24
Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing.

5:25
Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;

5:26
That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word,

5:27
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.

5:28
So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself.

5:29
For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church:

5:30
For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones.

5:31
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.

5:32
This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church.

5:33
Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and the wife see that she reverence her husband.
