And (A)walk in love, (B)as Christ also has loved us and given Himself for us, an offering and a sacrifice to God (C)for a sweet-smelling aroma.

But fornication and all (D)uncleanness or (E)covetousness, let it not even be named among you, as is fitting for saints; (F)neither filthiness, nor (G)foolish talking, nor coarse jesting, (H)which are not fitting, but rather (I)giving of thanks. For [a]this you know, that no fornicator, unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, has any (J)inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and God. Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of these things the wrath of God comes upon the sons of disobedience. Therefore do not be (K)partakers with them.

But (F)sexual immorality [c]or any impurity or greed must not even be mentioned among you, as is proper among [d]saints; and there must be no (G)filthiness [e]or foolish talk, or vulgar joking, which (H)are not fitting, but rather (I)giving of thanks.

and walk continually in love [that is, value one another—practice empathy and compassion, unselfishly seeking the best for others], just as Christ also loved you and gave Himself up for us, an offering and sacrifice to God [slain for you, so that it became] a sweet fragrance.(A)

But sexual immorality and all [moral] impurity [indecent, offensive behavior] or greed must not even be hinted at among you, as is proper among saints [for as believers our way of life, whether in public or in private, reflects the validity of our faith]. Let there be no filthiness and silly talk, or coarse [obscene or vulgar] joking, because such things are not appropriate [for believers]; but instead speak of your thankfulness [to God]. For be sure of this: no immoral, impure, or greedy person—for that one is [in effect] an idolater—has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and God [for such a person places a higher value on something other than God].

Let no one deceive you with empty arguments [that encourage you to sin], for because of these things the wrath of God comes upon the sons of disobedience [those who habitually sin].(B) So do not participate or even associate with them [in the rebelliousness of sin].

But among you there must not be even a hint of sexual immorality,(D) or of any kind of impurity, or of greed,(E) because these are improper for God’s holy people. Nor should there be obscenity, foolish talk(F) or coarse joking, which are out of place, but rather thanksgiving.(G) For of this you can be sure: No immoral, impure or greedy person—such a person is an idolater(H)—has any inheritance(I) in the kingdom of Christ and of God.[a](J) Let no one deceive you(K) with empty words, for because of such things God’s wrath(L) comes on those who are disobedient.(M) Therefore do not be partners with them.

  1. Ephesians 5:5 Or kingdom of the Messiah and God

And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweetsmelling savour.

But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named among you, as becometh saints;

Neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor jesting, which are not convenient: but rather giving of thanks.

For this ye know, that no whoremonger, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, hath any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God.

Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience.

Be not ye therefore partakers with them.
