12 So, as those who have been (A)chosen of God, holy and beloved, (B)put on a (C)heart of compassion, kindness, (D)humility, gentleness, and [a](E)patience; 13 (F)bearing with one another, and (G)forgiving each other, whoever has a complaint against anyone; (H)just as the Lord forgave you, so must you do also. 14 In addition to all these things put on love, which is [b](I)the perfect bond of (J)unity. 15 Let (K)the peace of Christ, to which you were [c]indeed called in (L)one body, [d]rule in your hearts; and [e]be thankful.
