2:12 That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world: (Add To My Scripture Library)

2:13 But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ. (Add To My Scripture Library)

2:14 For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us; (Add To My Scripture Library)

2:15 Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace; (Add To My Scripture Library)

3:2 If ye have heard of the dispensation of the grace of God which is given me to you-ward: (Add To My Scripture Library)

3:3 How that by revelation he made known unto me the mystery; (as I wrote afore in few words, (Add To My Scripture Library)

3:4 Whereby, when ye read, ye may understand my knowledge in the mystery of Christ) (Add To My Scripture Library)

3:5 Which in other ages was not made known unto the sons of men, as it is now revealed unto his holy apostles and prophets by the Spirit; (Add To My Scripture Library)

3:6 That the Gentiles should be fellowheirs, and of the same body, and partakers of his promise in Christ by the gospel: (Add To My Scripture Library)

3:15 Of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named, (Add To My Scripture Library)

3:16 That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man; (Add To My Scripture Library)

3:17 That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, (Add To My Scripture Library)

3:18 May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; (Add To My Scripture Library)

3:19 And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God. (Add To My Scripture Library)

4:1 I therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you that ye walk worthy of the vocation wherewith ye are called, (Add To My Scripture Library)

4:2 With all lowliness and meekness, with longsuffering, forbearing one another in love; (Add To My Scripture Library)

4:3 Endeavouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. (Add To My Scripture Library)

4:4 There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling; (Add To My Scripture Library)

4:6 One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all. (Add To My Scripture Library)

4:11 And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; (Add To My Scripture Library)

4:12 For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: (Add To My Scripture Library)

4:13 Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ: (Add To My Scripture Library)

4:14 That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive; (Add To My Scripture Library)

4:18 Having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart: (Add To My Scripture Library)

4:19 Who being past feeling have given themselves over unto lasciviousness, to work all uncleanness with greediness. (Add To My Scripture Library)

4:20 But ye have not so learned Christ; (Add To My Scripture Library)

4:21 If so be that ye have heard him, and have been taught by him, as the truth is in Jesus: (Add To My Scripture Library)

4:22 That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts; (Add To My Scripture Library)

4:23 And be renewed in the spirit of your mind; (Add To My Scripture Library)

4:24 And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness. (Add To My Scripture Library)

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. (Add To My Scripture Library)

5:3 But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named among you, as becometh saints; (Add To My Scripture Library)

5:4 Neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor jesting, which are not convenient: but rather giving of thanks. (Add To My Scripture Library)

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. (Add To My Scripture Library)

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. (Add To My Scripture Library)

5:9 (For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth;) (Add To My Scripture Library)

5:10 Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord. (Add To My Scripture Library)

5:11 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them. (Add To My Scripture Library)

5:12 For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret. (Add To My Scripture Library)

5:13 But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the light: for whatsoever doth make manifest is light. (Add To My Scripture Library)

5:14 Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light. (Add To My Scripture Library)

5:15 See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, (Add To My Scripture Library)

5:16 Redeeming the time, because the days are evil. (Add To My Scripture Library)

5:17 Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is. (Add To My Scripture Library)

5:18 And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit; (Add To My Scripture Library)

5:19 Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord; (Add To My Scripture Library)

5:20 Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ; (Add To My Scripture Library)

5:21 Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God. (Add To My Scripture Library)

5:22 Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord. (Add To My Scripture Library)

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. (Add To My Scripture Library)

5:24 Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing. (Add To My Scripture Library)

5:25 Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it; (Add To My Scripture Library)

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. (Add To My Scripture Library)

5:28 So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself. (Add To My Scripture Library)

5:29 For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church: (Add To My Scripture Library)

5:30 For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones. (Add To My Scripture Library)

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. (Add To My Scripture Library)

5:32 This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church. (Add To My Scripture Library)

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. (Add To My Scripture Library)

6:7 With good will doing service, as to the Lord, and not to men: (Add To My Scripture Library)
