4:1 I therefore, the prisoner in the Lord, beseech you to walk worthily of the calling wherewith ye were called,
4:2 with all lowliness and meekness, with longsuffering, forbearing one another in love;
4:3 giving diligence to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.
4:4 [There is] one body, and one Spirit, even as also ye were called in one hope of your calling;
4:5 one Lord, one faith, one baptism,
4:7 But unto each one of us was the grace given according to the measure of the gift of Christ.
4:9 (Now this, He ascended, what is it but that he also descended into the lower parts of the earth?
4:10 He that descended is the same also that ascended far above all the heavens, that he might fill all things.)
4:15 but speaking truth in love, we may grow up in all things into him, who is the head, [even] Christ;
4:16 from whom all the body fitly framed and knit together through that which every joint supplieth, according to the working in [due] measure of each several part, maketh the increase of the body unto the building up of itself in love.
4:17 This I say therefore, and testify in the Lord, that ye no longer walk as the Gentiles also walk, in the vanity of their mind,
4:19 who being past feeling gave themselves up to lasciviousness, to work all uncleanness with greediness.
4:20 But ye did not so learn Christ;
4:21 if so be that ye heard him, and were taught in him, even as truth is in Jesus:
4:22 that ye put away, as concerning your former manner of life, the old man, that waxeth corrupt after the lusts of deceit;
4:23 and that ye be renewed in the spirit of your mind,
4:26 Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath:
4:27 neither give place to the devil.
4:28 Let him that stole steal no more: but rather let him labor, working with his hands the thing that is good, that he may have whereof to give to him that hath need.
4:29 Let no corrupt speech proceed out of your mouth, but such as is good for edifying as the need may be, that it may give grace to them that hear.
4:31 Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamor, and railing, be put away from you, with all malice:
4:32 and be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving each other, even as God also in Christ forgave you.
