Ephesians 5:3-4 Wycliffe Bible (WYC)

And fornication, and all uncleanness, or avarice, be not named among you, as it becometh holy men;

either filth, or folly speech, or buffoonery [or harlotry], that pertaineth not to profit, but more rather doing of thankings [but more doing of thankings].

Ephesians 5:3-4 New Matthew Bible (NMB)

As for fornication and all uncleanness or covetousness, let them not be once named among you, as it becomes saints. Nor should there be coarseness, or foolish talking, or jestings which are not fitting, but rather giving of thanks.

Ephesians 5:3-4 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

[a]But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named among you, as it becometh Saints,

Neither filthiness, neither foolish talking, neither [b]jesting, which are things not comely, but rather giving of thanks.


  1. Ephesians 5:3 Now he cometh to another kind of affections, which is in that part of the mind, which men call covetous or desirous: and he reprehended fornication, covetousness, and jesting, very sharply.
  2. Ephesians 5:4 Jests which men cast one at another: that no lightness be seen, nor evil example given, nor any offense moved by evil words or backbiting.
