(A)Put to death therefore (B)what is earthly in you:[a] (C)sexual immorality, impurity, (D)passion, evil desire, and covetousness, (E)which is idolatry. (F)On account of these the wrath of God is coming.[b] (G)In these you too once walked, when you were living in them. But now (H)you must put them all away: (I)anger, wrath, malice, (J)slander, and obscene talk from your mouth. (K)Do not lie to one another, seeing that (L)you have put off (M)the old self[c] with its practices 10 and (N)have put on (O)the new self, (P)which is being renewed in knowledge (Q)after the image of (R)its creator. 11 (S)Here there is not Greek and Jew, circumcised and uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave,[d] free; but Christ is (T)all, and in all.
