Ephesians Chapter 5
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
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
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
5:18 And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with
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
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
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
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.
