But now (A)you must put them all away: (B)anger, wrath, malice, (C)slander, and obscene talk from your mouth. (D)Do not lie to one another, seeing that (E)you have put off (F)the old self[a] with its practices 10 and (G)have put on (H)the new self, (I)which is being renewed in knowledge (J)after the image of (K)its creator. 11 (L)Here there is not Greek and Jew, circumcised and uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave,[b] free; but Christ is (M)all, and in all.

12 (N)Put on then, as (O)God's chosen ones, holy and beloved, (P)compassionate hearts, (Q)kindness, (R)humility, meekness, and patience, 13 (S)bearing with one another and, (T)if one has a complaint against another, (U)forgiving each other; (V)as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive. 14 And above all these put on (W)love, which (X)binds everything together in (Y)perfect harmony. 15 And let (Z)the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called (AA)in one body. And (AB)be thankful.
