Put On the New Self

(A)If then you have been raised with Christ, seek (B)the things that are above, where Christ is, (C)seated at the right hand of God. (D)Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth.

(A)Do not lie to one another, seeing that (B)you have put off (C)the old self[a] with its practices 10 and (D)have put on (E)the new self, (F)which is being renewed in knowledge (G)after the image of (H)its creator. 11 (I)Here there is not Greek and Jew, circumcised and uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave,[b] free; but Christ is (J)all, and in all.

12 (K)Put on then, as (L)God's chosen ones, holy and beloved, (M)compassionate hearts, (N)kindness, (O)humility, meekness, and patience, 13 (P)bearing with one another and, (Q)if one has a complaint against another, (R)forgiving each other; (S)as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive. 14 And above all these put on (T)love, which (U)binds everything together in (V)perfect harmony. 15 And let (W)the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called (X)in one body. And (Y)be thankful. 16 Let (Z)the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, (AA)singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, (AB)with thankfulness in your hearts to God. 17 And (AC)whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, (AD)giving thanks to God the Father through him.
