Ephesians 4:17-32 NASB
17 So this I say, and affirm together with the Lord, that you walk no longer just as the Gentiles also walk, in the futility of
their mind, 18 being darkened in their understanding, excluded from the life of God because of the ignorance that is in them, because of the hardness
of their heart; 19 and they, having become callous, have given themselves over to sensuality for the practice of every kind of impurity with greediness.
20 But you did not learn Christ in this way, 21 if indeed you have heard Him and have been taught in Him, just as truth is in Jesus, 22 that, in reference
to your former manner of life, you lay aside the old self, which is being corrupted in accordance with the lusts of deceit, 23 and that you be renewed
in the spirit of your mind, 24 and put on the new self, which in the likeness of God has been created in righteousness and holiness of the truth.
25 Therefore, laying aside falsehood, speak truth each oneof youwith his neighbor, for we are members of one another. 26 Be angry, andyetdo not sin; do
not let the sun go down on your anger, 27 and do not give the devil an opportunity. 28 He who steals must steal no longer; but rather he must labor,
performing with his own hands what is good, so that he will have something to share with one who has need. 29 Let no unwholesome word proceed from
your mouth, but only such a word as is good for edification according to the need of the moment, so that it will give grace to those who hear. 30 Do
not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. 31 Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander
be put away from you, along with all malice. 32 Be kind to one another, tender-hearted, forgiving each other, just as God in Christ also has forgiven
