4:1 I [G1473] therefore [G3767] , the prisoner [G1198] of [G1722] the Lord [G2962] , beseech [G3870] you [G5209] that ye walk [G4043] worthy [G516] of the vocation [G2821] wherewith [G3739] ye are called [G2564] ,(of the Lord: or, in the Lord)
4:2 With [G3326] all [G3956] lowliness [G5012] and [G2532] meekness [G4236] , with [G3326] longsuffering [G3115] , forbearing [G430] one another [G240] in [G1722] love [G26] ;
4:3 Endeavouring [G4704] to keep [G5083] the unity [G1775] of the Spirit [G4151] in [G1722] the bond [G4886] of peace [G1515] .
4:4 [There is] one [G1520] body [G4983] , and [G2532] one [G1520] Spirit [G4151] , even as [G2531] [G2532] ye are called [G2564] in [G1722] one [G3391] hope [G1680] of your [G5216] calling [G2821] ;
4:5 One [G1520] Lord [G2962] , one [G1520] faith [G4102] , one [G3391] baptism [G908] ,
4:6 One [G1520] God [G2316] and [G2532] Father [G3962] of all [G3956] , who [G3588] [is] above [G1909] all [G3956] , and [G2532] through [G1223] all [G3956] , and [G2532] in [G1722] you [G5213] all [G3956] .
4:7 But [G1161] unto every [G1538] one [G1520] of us [G2257] is given [G1325] grace [G5485] according to [G2596] the measure [G3358] of the gift [G1431] of Christ [G5547] .
4:8 Wherefore [G1352] he saith [G3004] , When he ascended [G305] up [G1519] on high [G5311] , he led captivity [G162] captive [G161] , and [G2532] gave [G1325] gifts [G1390] unto men [G444] .(captivity: or, a multitude of captives)
4:9 (Now [G1161] that he ascended [G305] , what [G5101] is it [G2076] but [G1508] that [G3754] he [G2597] also [G2532] descended [G2597] first [G4412] into [G1519] the lower [G2737] parts [G3313] of the earth [G1093] ?
4:10 He [G846] that descended [G2597] is [G2076] the same also [G2532] that ascended up [G305] far above [G5231] all [G3956] heavens [G3772] , that [G2443] he might fill [G4137] all things [G3956] .)(fill: or, fulfil)
4:11 And [G2532] he [G846] gave [G1325] some [G3303] , apostles [G652] ; and [G1161] some, prophets [G4396] ; and [G1161] some, evangelists [G2099] ; and [G1161] some, pastors [G4166] and [G2532] teachers [G1320] ;
4:12 For [G4314] the perfecting [G2677] of the saints [G40] , for [G1519] the work [G2041] of the ministry [G1248] , for [G1519] the edifying [G3619] of the body [G4983] of Christ [G5547] :
4:13 Till [G3360] we all [G3956] come [G2658] in [G1519] the unity [G1775] of the faith [G4102] , and [G2532] of the knowledge [G1922] of the Son [G5207] of God [G2316] , unto [G1519] a perfect [G5046] man [G435] , unto [G1519] the measure [G3358] of the stature [G2244] of the fulness [G4138] of Christ [G5547] :(in: or, into)(stature: or, age)
4:14 That [G2443] we [henceforth] be [G5600] no more [G3371] children [G3516] , tossed to and fro [G2831] , and [G2532] carried about with [G4064] every [G3956] wind [G417] of doctrine [G1319] , by [G1722] the sleight [G2940] of men [G444] , [and] cunning craftiness [G1722] [G3834] , whereby [G4314] they lie in wait [G3180] to deceive [G4106] ;
4:15 But [G1161] speaking the truth [G226] in [G1722] love [G26] , may grow up [G837] into [G1519] him [G846] in all things [G3956] , which [G3739] is [G2076] the head [G2776] , [even] Christ [G5547] :(speaking: or, being sincere)
4:16 From [G1537] whom [G3739] the whole [G3956] body [G4983] fitly joined together [G4883] and [G2532] compacted [G4822] by [G1223] that which every [G3956] joint [G860] supplieth [G2024] , according [G2596] to the effectual working [G1753] in [G1722] the measure [G3358] of every [G1538] part [G1520] [G3313] , maketh [G4160] increase [G838] of the body [G4983] unto [G1519] the edifying [G3619] of itself [G1438] in [G1722] love [G26] .
4:17 This [G5124] I say [G3004] therefore [G3767] , and [G2532] testify [G3143] in [G1722] the Lord [G2962] , that ye [G5209] henceforth [G3371] walk [G4043] not [G3371] as [G2531] [G2532] other [G3062] Gentiles [G1484] walk [G4043] , in [G1722] the vanity [G3153] of their [G846] mind [G3563] ,
4:18 Having the understanding [G1271] darkened [G4654] , being [G5607] alienated [G526] from the life [G2222] of God [G2316] through [G1223] the ignorance [G52] that is [G5607] in [G1722] them [G846] , because [G1223] of the blindness [G4457] of their [G846] heart [G2588] :(blindness: or, hardness)
4:19 Who [G3748] being past feeling [G524] have given [G3860] themselves [G1438] over [G3860] unto lasciviousness [G766] , to [G1519] work [G2039] all [G3956] uncleanness [G167] with [G1722] greediness [G4124] .
4:20 But [G1161] ye [G5210] have [G3129] not [G3756] so [G3779] learned [G3129] Christ [G5547] ;
4:21 If so be that [G1489] ye have heard [G191] him [G846] , and [G2532] have been taught [G1321] by [G1722] him [G846] , as [G2531] the truth [G225] is [G2076] in [G1722] Jesus [G2424] :
4:22 That ye [G5209] put off [G659] concerning [G2596] the former [G4387] conversation [G391] the old [G3820] man [G444] , which [G3588] is corrupt [G5351] according [G2596] to the deceitful [G539] lusts [G1939] ;
4:23 And [G1161] be renewed [G365] in the spirit [G4151] of your [G5216] mind [G3563] ;
4:24 And [G2532] that ye put on [G1746] the new [G2537] man [G444] , which [G3588] after [G2596] God [G2316] is created [G2936] in [G1722] righteousness [G1343] and [G2532] true [G225] holiness [G3742] .(true: or, holiness of truth)
4:25 Wherefore [G1352] putting away [G659] lying [G5579] , speak [G2980] every man [G1538] truth [G225] with [G3326] his [G846] neighbour [G4139] : for [G3754] we are [G2070] members [G3196] one of another [G240] .
4:26 Be ye angry [G3710] , and [G2532] sin [G264] not [G3361] : let [G1931] not [G3361] the sun [G2246] go down [G1931] upon [G1909] your [G5216] wrath [G3950] :
4:27 Neither [G3383] give [G1325] place [G5117] to the devil [G1228] .
4:28 Let [G2813] him that stole [G2813] steal [G2813] no more [G3371] : but [G1161] rather [G3123] let him labour [G2872] , working [G2038] with [his] hands [G5495] the thing which is good [G18] , that [G2443] he may have [G2192] to give [G3330] to him that needeth [G5532] [G2192] .(to give: or, to distribute)
4:29 Let [G4550] no [G3361] [G3956] corrupt [G4550] communication [G3056] proceed [G1607] out of [G1537] your [G5216] mouth [G4750] , but [G235] that which [G1536] is good [G18] to [G4314] the use [G5532] of edifying [G3619] , that [G2443] it may minister [G1325] grace [G5485] unto the hearers [G191] .(to: or, to edify profitably)
4:30 And [G2532] grieve [G3076] not [G3361] the holy [G40] Spirit [G4151] of God [G2316] , whereby [G1722] [G3739] ye are sealed [G4972] unto [G1519] the day [G2250] of redemption [G629] .
4:31 Let [G142] all [G3956] bitterness [G4088] , and [G2532] wrath [G2372] , and [G2532] anger [G3709] , and [G2532] clamour [G2906] , and [G2532] evil speaking [G988] , be put away [G142] from [G575] you [G5216] , with [G4862] all [G3956] malice [G2549] :
4:32 And [G1161] be [G1096] ye kind [G5543] one to another [G1519] [G240] , tenderhearted [G2155] , forgiving [G5483] one another [G1438] , even as [G2531] [G2532] God [G2316] for [G1722] Christ's [G5547] sake [G1722] hath forgiven [G5483] you [G5213] .
