26 (A)Be angry, and yet do not sin; do not let the sun go down on your anger, 27 and do not (B)give the devil [a]an opportunity. 28 He who steals must steal no longer; but rather (C)he must labor, (D)performing with his own hands what is good, (E)so that he will have something to share with [b]one who has need. 29 Let no [c](F)unwholesome word proceed from your mouth, but only such a word as is good for (G)edification [d]according to the need of the moment, so that it will give grace to those who hear. 30 (H)Do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, [e]by whom you were (I)sealed for the day of redemption. 31 (J)Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be (K)put away from you, along with all (L)malice. 32 (M)Be kind to one another, tender-hearted, forgiving each other, (N)just as God in Christ also has forgiven [f]you.
