Book 48 – 51

Book 48 – Galatians

48:001:001 Paul, an apostle, (not of men, neither by man, but by Jesus
           Christ, and God the Father, who raised him from the dead;)

48:001:002 And all the brethren which are with me, unto the churches of

48:001:003 Grace be to you and peace from God the Father, and from our
           Lord Jesus Christ,

48:001:004 Who gave himself for our sins, that he might deliver us from
           this present evil world, according to the will of God and our

48:001:005 To whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.

48:001:006 I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you
           into the grace of Christ unto another gospel:

48:001:007 Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and
           would pervert the gospel of Christ.

48:001:008 But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other
           gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let
           him be accursed.

48:001:009 As we said before, so say I now again, if any man preach any
           other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be

48:001:010 For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men?
           for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of

48:001:011 But I certify you, brethren, that the gospel which was
           preached of me is not after man.

48:001:012 For I neither received it of man, neither was I taught it, but
           by the revelation of Jesus Christ.

48:001:013 For ye have heard of my conversation in time past in the Jews'
           religion, how that beyond measure I persecuted the church of
           God, and wasted it:

48:001:014 And profited in the Jews' religion above many my equals in
           mine own nation, being more exceedingly zealous of the
           traditions of my fathers.

48:001:015 But when it pleased God, who separated me from my mother's
           womb, and called me by his grace,

48:001:016 To reveal his Son in me, that I might preach him among the
           heathen; immediately I conferred not with flesh and blood:

48:001:017 Neither went I up to Jerusalem to them which were apostles
           before me; but I went into Arabia, and returned again unto

48:001:018 Then after three years I went up to Jerusalem to see Peter,
           and abode with him fifteen days.

48:001:019 But other of the apostles saw I none, save James the Lord's

48:001:020 Now the things which I write unto you, behold, before God, I
           lie not.

48:001:021 Afterwards I came into the regions of Syria and Cilicia;

48:001:022 And was unknown by face unto the churches of Judaea which were
           in Christ:

48:001:023 But they had heard only, That he which persecuted us in times
           past now preacheth the faith which once he destroyed.

48:001:024 And they glorified God in me.

48:002:001 Then fourteen years after I went up again to Jerusalem with
           Barnabas, and took Titus with me also.

48:002:002 And I went up by revelation, and communicated unto them that
           gospel which I preach among the Gentiles, but privately to
           them which were of reputation, lest by any means I should run,
           or had run, in vain.

48:002:003 But neither Titus, who was with me, being a Greek, was
           compelled to be circumcised:

48:002:004 And that because of false brethren unawares brought in, who
           came in privily to spy out our liberty which we have in Christ
           Jesus, that they might bring us into bondage:

48:002:005 To whom we gave place by subjection, no, not for an hour; that
           the truth of the gospel might continue with you.

48:002:006 But of these who seemed to be somewhat, (whatsoever they were,
           it maketh no matter to me: God accepteth no man's person:) for
           they who seemed to be somewhat in conference added nothing to

48:002:007 But contrariwise, when they saw that the gospel of the
           uncircumcision was committed unto me, as the gospel of the
           circumcision was unto Peter;

48:002:008 (For he that wrought effectually in Peter to the apostleship
           of the circumcision, the same was mighty in me toward the

48:002:009 And when James, Cephas, and John, who seemed to be pillars,
           perceived the grace that was given unto me, they gave to me
           and Barnabas the right hands of fellowship; that we should go
           unto the heathen, and they unto the circumcision.

48:002:010 Only they would that we should remember the poor; the same
           which I also was forward to do.

48:002:011 But when Peter was come to Antioch, I withstood him to the
           face, because he was to be blamed.

48:002:012 For before that certain came from James, he did eat with the
           Gentiles: but when they were come, he withdrew and separated
           himself, fearing them which were of the circumcision.

48:002:013 And the other Jews dissembled likewise with him; insomuch that
           Barnabas also was carried away with their dissimulation.

48:002:014 But when I saw that they walked not uprightly according to the
           truth of the gospel, I said unto Peter before them all, If
           thou, being a Jew, livest after the manner of Gentiles, and
           not as do the Jews, why compellest thou the Gentiles to live
           as do the Jews?

48:002:015 We who are Jews by nature, and not sinners of the Gentiles,

48:002:016 Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law,
           but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in
           Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the faith of
           Christ, and not by the works of the law: for by the works of
           the law shall no flesh be justified.

48:002:017 But if, while we seek to be justified by Christ, we ourselves
           also are found sinners, is therefore Christ the minister of
           sin? God forbid.

48:002:018 For if I build again the things which I destroyed, I make
           myself a transgressor.

48:002:019 For I through the law am dead to the law, that I might live
           unto God.

48:002:020 I am crucified with Christ: neverthless I live; yet not I, but
           Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the
           flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and
           gave himself for me.

48:002:021 I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness come
           by the law, then Christ is dead in vain.

48:003:001 O foolish Galatians, who hath bewitched you, that ye should
           not obey the truth, before whose eyes Jesus Christ hath been
           evidently set forth, crucified among you?

48:003:002 This only would I learn of you, Received ye the Spirit by the
           works of the law, or by the hearing of faith?

48:003:003 Are ye so foolish? having begun in the Spirit, are ye now made
           perfect by the flesh?

48:003:004 Have ye suffered so many things in vain? if it be yet in vain.

48:003:005 He therefore that ministereth to you the Spirit, and worketh
           miracles among you, doeth he it by the works of the law, or by
           the hearing of faith?

48:003:006 Even as Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for

48:003:007 Know ye therefore that they which are of faith, the same are
           the children of Abraham.

48:003:008 And the scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the
           heathen through faith, preached before the gospel unto
           Abraham, saying, In thee shall all nations be blessed.

48:003:009 So then they which be of faith are blessed with faithful

48:003:010 For as many as are of the works of the law are under the
           curse: for it is written, Cursed is every one that continueth
           not in all things which are written in the book of the law to
           do them.

48:003:011 But that no man is justified by the law in the sight of God,
           it is evident: for, The just shall live by faith.

48:003:012 And the law is not of faith: but, The man that doeth them
           shall live in them.

48:003:013 Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made
           a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that
           hangeth on a tree:

48:003:014 That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles
           through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the
           Spirit through faith.

48:003:015 Brethren, I speak after the manner of men; Though it be but a
           man's covenant, yet if it be confirmed, no man disannulleth,
           or addeth thereto.

48:003:016 Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith
           not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed,
           which is Christ.

48:003:017 And this I say, that the covenant, that was confirmed before
           of God in Christ, the law, which was four hundred and thirty
           years after, cannot disannul, that it should make the promise
           of none effect.

48:003:018 For if the inheritance be of the law, it is no more of
           promise: but God gave it to Abraham by promise.

48:003:019 Wherefore then serveth the law? It was added because of
           transgressions, till the seed should come to whom the promise
           was made; and it was ordained by angels in the hand of a

48:003:020 Now a mediator is not a mediator of one, but God is one.

48:003:021 Is the law then against the promises of God? God forbid: for
           if there had been a law given which could have given life,
           verily righteousness should have been by the law.

48:003:022 But the scripture hath concluded all under sin, that the
           promise by faith of Jesus Christ might be given to them that

48:003:023 But before faith came, we were kept under the law, shut up
           unto the faith which should afterwards be revealed.

48:003:024 Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto
           Christ, that we might be justified by faith.

48:003:025 But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a

48:003:026 For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.

48:003:027 For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put
           on Christ.

48:003:028 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor
           free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in
           Christ Jesus.

48:003:029 And if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs
           according to the promise.

48:004:001 Now I say, That the heir, as long as he is a child, differeth
           nothing from a servant, though he be lord of all;

48:004:002 But is under tutors and governors until the time appointed of
           the father.

48:004:003 Even so we, when we were children, were in bondage under the
           elements of the world:

48:004:004 But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his
           Son, made of a woman, made under the law,

48:004:005 To redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive
           the adoption of sons.

48:004:006 And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his
           Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father.

48:004:007 Wherefore thou art no more a servant, but a son; and if a son,
           then an heir of God through Christ.

48:004:008 Howbeit then, when ye knew not God, ye did service unto them
           which by nature are no gods.

48:004:009 But now, after that ye have known God, or rather are known of
           God, how turn ye again to the weak and beggarly elements,
           whereunto ye desire again to be in bondage?

48:004:010 Ye observe days, and months, and times, and years.

48:004:011 I am afraid of you, lest I have bestowed upon you labour in

48:004:012 Brethren, I beseech you, be as I am; for I am as ye are: ye
           have not injured me at all.

48:004:013 Ye know how through infirmity of the flesh I preached the
           gospel unto you at the first.

48:004:014 And my temptation which was in my flesh ye despised not, nor
           rejected; but received me as an angel of God, even as Christ

48:004:015 Where is then the blessedness ye spake of? for I bear you
           record, that, if it had been possible, ye would have plucked
           out your own eyes, and have given them to me.

48:004:016 Am I therefore become your enemy, because I tell you the

48:004:017 They zealously affect you, but not well; yea, they would
           exclude you, that ye might affect them.

48:004:018 But it is good to be zealously affected always in a good
           thing, and not only when I am present with you.

48:004:019 My little children, of whom I travail in birth again until
           Christ be formed in you,

48:004:020 I desire to be present with you now, and to change my voice;
           for I stand in doubt of you.

48:004:021 Tell me, ye that desire to be under the law, do ye not hear
           the law?

48:004:022 For it is written, that Abraham had two sons, the one by a
           bondmaid, the other by a freewoman.

48:004:023 But he who was of the bondwoman was born after the flesh; but
           he of the freewoman was by promise.

48:004:024 Which things are an allegory: for these are the two covenants;
           the one from the mount Sinai, which gendereth to bondage,
           which is Agar.

48:004:025 For this Agar is mount Sinai in Arabia, and answereth to
           Jerusalem which now is, and is in bondage with her children.

48:004:026 But Jerusalem which is above is free, which is the mother of
           us all.

48:004:027 For it is written, Rejoice, thou barren that bearest not;
           break forth and cry, thou that travailest not: for the
           desolate hath many more children than she which hath an

48:004:028 Now we, brethren, as Isaac was, are the children of promise.

48:004:029 But as then he that was born after the flesh persecuted him
           that was born after the Spirit, even so it is now.

48:004:030 Nevertheless what saith the scripture? Cast out the bondwoman
           and her son: for the son of the bondwoman shall not be heir
           with the son of the freewoman.

48:004:031 So then, brethren, we are not children of the bondwoman, but
           of the free.

48:005:001 Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made
           us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.

48:005:002 Behold, I Paul say unto you, that if ye be circumcised, Christ
           shall profit you nothing.

48:005:003 For I testify again to every man that is circumcised, that he
           is a debtor to do the whole law.

48:005:004 Christ is become of no effect unto you, whosoever of you are
           justified by the law; ye are fallen from grace.

48:005:005 For we through the Spirit wait for the hope of righteousness
           by faith.

48:005:006 For in Jesus Christ neither circumcision availeth any thing,
           nor uncircumcision; but faith which worketh by love.

48:005:007 Ye did run well; who did hinder you that ye should not obey
           the truth?

48:005:008 This persuasion cometh not of him that calleth you.

48:005:009 A little leaven leaveneth the whole lump.

48:005:010 I have confidence in you through the Lord, that ye will be
           none otherwise minded: but he that troubleth you shall bear
           his judgment, whosoever he be.

48:005:011 And I, brethren, if I yet preach circumcision, why do I yet
           suffer persecution? then is the offence of the cross ceased.

48:005:012 I would they were even cut off which trouble you.

48:005:013 For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not
           liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one

48:005:014 For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; Thou
           shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

48:005:015 But if ye bite and devour one another, take heed that ye be
           not consumed one of another.

48:005:016 This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil
           the lust of the flesh.

48:005:017 For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit
           against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the
           other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.

48:005:018 But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law.

48:005:019 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these;
           Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,

48:005:020 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath,
           strife, seditions, heresies,

48:005:021 Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of
           the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time
           past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the
           kingdom of God.

48:005:022 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace,
           longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,

48:005:023 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.

48:005:024 And they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh with the
           affections and lusts.

48:005:025 If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.

48:005:026 Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another,
           envying one another.

48:006:001 Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are
           spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness;
           considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted.

48:006:002 Bear ye one another's burdens, and so fulfil the law of

48:006:003 For if a man think himself to be something, when he is
           nothing, he deceiveth himself.

48:006:004 But let every man prove his own work, and then shall he have
           rejoicing in himself alone, and not in another.

48:006:005 For every man shall bear his own burden.

48:006:006 Let him that is taught in the word communicate unto him that
           teacheth in all good things.

48:006:007 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man
           soweth, that shall he also reap.

48:006:008 For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap
           corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the
           Spirit reap life everlasting.

48:006:009 And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we
           shall reap, if we faint not.

48:006:010 As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men,
           especially unto them who are of the household of faith.

48:006:011 Ye see how large a letter I have written unto you with mine
           own hand.

48:006:012 As many as desire to make a fair shew in the flesh, they
           constrain you to be circumcised; only lest they should suffer
           persecution for the cross of Christ.

48:006:013 For neither they themselves who are circumcised keep the law;
           but desire to have you circumcised, that they may glory in
           your flesh.

48:006:014 But God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of our
           Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world is crucified unto me, and
           I unto the world.

48:006:015 For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision availeth any thing,
           nor uncircumcision, but a new creature.

48:006:016 And as many as walk according to this rule, peace be on them,
           and mercy, and upon the Israel of God.

48:006:017 From henceforth let no man trouble me: for I bear in my body
           the marks of the Lord Jesus.

48:006:018 Brethren, the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with your
           spirit. Amen.

Book 49 – Ephesians

49:001:001 Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, to the
           saints which are at Ephesus, and to the faithful in Christ

49:001:002 Grace be to you, and peace, from God our Father, and from the
           Lord Jesus Christ.

49:001:003 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who
           hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly
           places in Christ:

49:001:004 According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of
           the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him
           in love:

49:001:005 Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus
           Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will,

49:001:006 To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made
           us accepted in the beloved.

49:001:007 In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness
           of sins, according to the riches of his grace;

49:001:008 Wherein he hath abounded toward us in all wisdom and prudence;

49:001:009 Having made known unto us the mystery of his will, according
           to his good pleasure which he hath purposed in himself:

49:001:010 That in the dispensation of the fulness of times he might
           gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in
           heaven, and which are on earth; even in him:

49:001:011 In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being
           predestinated according to the purpose of him who worketh all
           things after the counsel of his own will:

49:001:012 That we should be to the praise of his glory, who first
           trusted in Christ.

49:001:013 In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of
           truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that
           ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise,

49:001:014 Which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption
           of the purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory.

49:001:015 Wherefore I also, after I heard of your faith in the Lord
           Jesus, and love unto all the saints,

49:001:016 Cease not to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my

49:001:017 That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory,
           may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the
           knowledge of him:

49:001:018 The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may
           know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of
           the glory of his inheritance in the saints,

49:001:019 And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward
           who believe, according to the working of his mighty power,

49:001:020 Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead,
           and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places,

49:001:021 Far above all principality, and power, and might, and
           dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this
           world, but also in that which is to come:

49:001:022 And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the
           head over all things to the church,

49:001:023 Which is his body, the fulness of him that filleth all in all.

49:002:001 And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and

49:002:002 Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this
           world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the
           spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:

49:002:003 Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in
           the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh
           and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath,
           even as others.

49:002:004 But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he
           loved us,

49:002:005 Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together
           with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;)

49:002:006 And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in
           heavenly places in Christ Jesus:

49:002:007 That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of
           his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus.

49:002:008 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of
           yourselves: it is the gift of God:

49:002:009 Not of works, lest any man should boast.

49:002:010 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good
           works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in

49:002:011 Wherefore remember, that ye being in time past Gentiles in the
           flesh, who are called Uncircumcision by that which is called
           the Circumcision in the flesh made by hands;

49:002:012 That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from
           the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants
           of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world:

49:002:013 But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made
           nigh by the blood of Christ.

49:002:014 For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken
           down the middle wall of partition between us;

49:002:015 Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of
           commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself
           of twain one new man, so making peace;

49:002:016 And that he might reconcile both unto God in one body by the
           cross, having slain the enmity thereby:

49:002:017 And came and preached peace to you which were afar off, and to
           them that were nigh.

49:002:018 For through him we both have access by one Spirit unto the

49:002:019 Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but
           fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God;

49:002:020 And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and
           prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone;

49:002:021 In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an
           holy temple in the Lord:

49:002:022 In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God
           through the Spirit.

49:003:001 For this cause I Paul, the prisoner of Jesus Christ for you

49:003:002 If ye have heard of the dispensation of the grace of God which
           is given me to you-ward:

49:003:003 How that by revelation he made known unto me the mystery; (as
           I wrote afore in few words,

49:003:004 Whereby, when ye read, ye may understand my knowledge in the
           mystery of Christ)

49:003:005 Which in other ages was not made known unto the sons of men,
           as it is now revealed unto his holy apostles and prophets by
           the Spirit;

49:003:006 That the Gentiles should be fellowheirs, and of the same body,
           and partakers of his promise in Christ by the gospel:

49:003:007 Whereof I was made a minister, according to the gift of the
           grace of God given unto me by the effectual working of his

49:003:008 Unto me, who am less than the least of all saints, is this
           grace given, that I should preach among the Gentiles the
           unsearchable riches of Christ;

49:003:009 And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery,
           which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God,
           who created all things by Jesus Christ:

49:003:010 To the intent that now unto the principalities and powers in
           heavenly places might be known by the church the manifold
           wisdom of God,

49:003:011 According to the eternal purpose which he purposed in Christ
           Jesus our Lord:

49:003:012 In whom we have boldness and access with confidence by the
           faith of him.

49:003:013 Wherefore I desire that ye faint not at my tribulations for
           you, which is your glory.

49:003:014 For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord
           Jesus Christ,

49:003:015 Of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named,

49:003:016 That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory,
           to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man;

49:003:017 That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being
           rooted and grounded in love,

49:003:018 May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth,
           and length, and depth, and height;

49:003:019 And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that
           ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.

49:003:020 Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all
           that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in

49:003:021 Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all
           ages, world without end. Amen.

49:004:001 I therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you that ye
           walk worthy of the vocation wherewith ye are called,

49:004:002 With all lowliness and meekness, with longsuffering,
           forbearing one another in love;

49:004:003 Endeavouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of

49:004:004 There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in
           one hope of your calling;

49:004:005 One Lord, one faith, one baptism,

49:004:006 One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all,
           and in you all.

49:004:007 But unto every one of us is given grace according to the
           measure of the gift of Christ.

49:004:008 Wherefore he saith, When he ascended up on high, he led
           captivity captive, and gave gifts unto men.

49:004:009 (Now that he ascended, what is it but that he also descended
           first into the lower parts of the earth?

49:004:010 He that descended is the same also that ascended up far above
           all heavens, that he might fill all things.)

49:004:011 And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some,
           evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers;

49:004:012 For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the
           ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:

49:004:013 Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the
           knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the
           measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ:

49:004:014 That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and
           carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of
           men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to

49:004:015 But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all
           things, which is the head, even Christ:

49:004:016 From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted
           by that which every joint supplieth, according to the
           effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh
           increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love.

49:004:017 This I say therefore, and testify in the Lord, that ye
           henceforth walk not as other Gentiles walk, in the vanity of
           their mind,

49:004:018 Having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the
           life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of
           the blindness of their heart:

49:004:019 Who being past feeling have given themselves over unto
           lasciviousness, to work all uncleanness with greediness.

49:004:020 But ye have not so learned Christ;

49:004:021 If so be that ye have heard him, and have been taught by him,
           as the truth is in Jesus:

49:004:022 That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old
           man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts;

49:004:023 And be renewed in the spirit of your mind;

49:004:024 And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in
           righteousness and true holiness.

49:004:025 Wherefore putting away lying, speak every man truth with his
           neighbour: for we are members one of another.

49:004:026 Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your

49:004:027 Neither give place to the devil.

49:004:028 Let him that stole steal no more: but rather let him labour,
           working with his hands the thing which is good, that he may
           have to give to him that needeth.

49:004:029 Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but
           that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may
           minister grace unto the hearers.

49:004:030 And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed
           unto the day of redemption.

49:004:031 Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and
           evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice:

49:004:032 And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one
           another, even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you.

49:005:001 Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children;

49:005:002 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.

49:005:003 But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it
           not be once named among you, as becometh saints;

49:005:004 Neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor jesting, which
           are not convenient: but rather giving of thanks.

49:005:005 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.

49:005:006 Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these
           things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of

49:005:007 Be not ye therefore partakers with them.

49:005:008 For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the
           Lord: walk as children of light:

49:005:009 (For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and
           righteousness and truth;)

49:005:010 Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord.

49:005:011 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness,
           but rather reprove them.

49:005:012 For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done
           of them in secret.

49:005:013 But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the
           light: for whatsoever doth make manifest is light.

49:005:014 Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from
           the dead, and Christ shall give thee light.

49:005:015 See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as

49:005:016 Redeeming the time, because the days are evil.

49:005:017 Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of
           the Lord is.

49:005:018 And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled
           with the Spirit;

49:005:019 Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual
           songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord;

49:005:020 Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in
           the name of our Lord Jesus Christ;

49:005:021 Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God.

49:005:022 Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the

49:005:023 For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the
           head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body.

49:005:024 Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the
           wives be to their own husbands in every thing.

49:005:025 Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the
           church, and gave himself for it;

49:005:026 That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of
           water by the word,

49:005:027 That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not
           having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should
           be holy and without blemish.

49:005:028 So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that
           loveth his wife loveth himself.

49:005:029 For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and
           cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church:

49:005:030 For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his

49:005:031 For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and
           shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one

49:005:032 This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the

49:005:033 Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his
           wife even as himself; and the wife see that she reverence her

49:006:001 Children, obey your parents in the Lord: for this is right.

49:006:002 Honour thy father and mother; which is the first commandment
           with promise;

49:006:003 That it may be well with thee, and thou mayest live long on
           the earth.

49:006:004 And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring
           them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.

49:006:005 Servants, be obedient to them that are your masters according
           to the flesh, with fear and trembling, in singleness of your
           heart, as unto Christ;

49:006:006 Not with eyeservice, as menpleasers; but as the servants of
           Christ, doing the will of God from the heart;

49:006:007 With good will doing service, as to the Lord, and not to men:

49:006:008 Knowing that whatsoever good thing any man doeth, the same
           shall he receive of the Lord, whether he be bond or free.

49:006:009 And, ye masters, do the same things unto them, forbearing
           threatening: knowing that your Master also is in heaven;
           neither is there respect of persons with him.

49:006:010 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power
           of his might.

49:006:011 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand
           against the wiles of the devil.

49:006:012 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against
           principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the
           darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high

49:006:013 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may
           be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to

49:006:014 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and
           having on the breastplate of righteousness;

49:006:015 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of

49:006:016 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be
           able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.

49:006:017 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit,
           which is the word of God:

49:006:018 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit,
           and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication
           for all saints;

49:006:019 And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may
           open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel,

49:006:020 For which I am an ambassador in bonds: that therein I may
           speak boldly, as I ought to speak.

49:006:021 But that ye also may know my affairs, and how I do, Tychicus,
           a beloved brother and faithful minister in the Lord, shall
           make known to you all things:

49:006:022 Whom I have sent unto you for the same purpose, that ye might
           know our affairs, and that he might comfort your hearts.

49:006:023 Peace be to the brethren, and love with faith, from God the
           Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

49:006:024 Grace be with all them that love our Lord Jesus Christ in
           sincerity. Amen.

Book 50 – Philippians

50:001:001 Paul and Timotheus, the servants of Jesus Christ, to all the
           saints in Christ Jesus which are at Philippi, with the bishops
           and deacons:

50:001:002 Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father, and from
           the Lord Jesus Christ.

50:001:003 I thank my God upon every remembrance of you,

50:001:004 Always in every prayer of mine for you all making request with

50:001:005 For your fellowship in the gospel from the first day until

50:001:006 Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a
           good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus

50:001:007 Even as it is meet for me to think this of you all, because I
           have you in my heart; inasmuch as both in my bonds, and in the
           defence and confirmation of the gospel, ye all are partakers
           of my grace.

50:001:008 For God is my record, how greatly I long after you all in the
           bowels of Jesus Christ.

50:001:009 And this I pray, that your love may abound yet more and more
           in knowledge and in all judgment;

50:001:010 That ye may approve things that are excellent; that ye may be
           sincere and without offence till the day of Christ.

50:001:011 Being filled with the fruits of righteousness, which are by
           Jesus Christ, unto the glory and praise of God.

50:001:012 But I would ye should understand, brethren, that the things
           which happened unto me have fallen out rather unto the
           furtherance of the gospel;

50:001:013 So that my bonds in Christ are manifest in all the palace, and
           in all other places;

50:001:014 And many of the brethren in the Lord, waxing confident by my
           bonds, are much more bold to speak the word without fear.

50:001:015 Some indeed preach Christ even of envy and strife; and some
           also of good will:

50:001:016 The one preach Christ of contention, not sincerely, supposing
           to add affliction to my bonds:

50:001:017 But the other of love, knowing that I am set for the defence
           of the gospel.

50:001:018 What then? notwithstanding, every way, whether in pretence, or
           in truth, Christ is preached; and I therein do rejoice, yea,
           and will rejoice.

50:001:019 For I know that this shall turn to my salvation through your
           prayer, and the supply of the Spirit of Jesus Christ,

50:001:020 According to my earnest expectation and my hope, that in
           nothing I shall be ashamed, but that with all boldness, as
           always, so now also Christ shall be magnified in my body,
           whether it be by life, or by death.

50:001:021 For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain.

50:001:022 But if I live in the flesh, this is the fruit of my labour:
           yet what I shall choose I wot not.

50:001:023 For I am in a strait betwixt two, having a desire to depart,
           and to be with Christ; which is far better:

50:001:024 Nevertheless to abide in the flesh is more needful for you.

50:001:025 And having this confidence, I know that I shall abide and
           continue with you all for your furtherance and joy of faith;

50:001:026 That your rejoicing may be more abundant in Jesus Christ for
           me by my coming to you again.

50:001:027 Only let your conversation be as it becometh the gospel of
           Christ: that whether I come and see you, or else be absent, I
           may hear of your affairs, that ye stand fast in one spirit,
           with one mind striving together for the faith of the gospel;

50:001:028 And in nothing terrified by your adversaries: which is to them
           an evident token of perdition, but to you of salvation, and
           that of God.

50:001:029 For unto you it is given in the behalf of Christ, not only to
           believe on him, but also to suffer for his sake;

50:001:030 Having the same conflict which ye saw in me, and now hear to
           be in me.

50:002:001 If there be therefore any consolation in Christ, if any
           comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any
           bowels and mercies,

50:002:002 Fulfil ye my joy, that ye be likeminded, having the same love,
           being of one accord, of one mind.

50:002:003 Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in
           lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than

50:002:004 Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on
           the things of others.

50:002:005 Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:

50:002:006 Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be
           equal with God:

50:002:007 But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form
           of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men:

50:002:008 And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and
           became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.

50:002:009 Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a
           name which is above every name:

50:002:010 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in
           heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;

50:002:011 And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is
           Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

50:002:012 Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my
           presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your
           own salvation with fear and trembling.

50:002:013 For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of
           his good pleasure.

50:002:014 Do all things without murmurings and disputings:

50:002:015 That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God,
           without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation,
           among whom ye shine as lights in the world;

50:002:016 Holding forth the word of life; that I may rejoice in the day
           of Christ, that I have not run in vain, neither laboured in

50:002:017 Yea, and if I be offered upon the sacrifice and service of
           your faith, I joy, and rejoice with you all.

50:002:018 For the same cause also do ye joy, and rejoice with me.

50:002:019 But I trust in the Lord Jesus to send Timotheus shortly unto
           you, that I also may be of good comfort, when I know your

50:002:020 For I have no man likeminded, who will naturally care for your

50:002:021 For all seek their own, not the things which are Jesus

50:002:022 But ye know the proof of him, that, as a son with the father,
           he hath served with me in the gospel.

50:002:023 Him therefore I hope to send presently, so soon as I shall see
           how it will go with me.

50:002:024 But I trust in the Lord that I also myself shall come shortly.

50:002:025 Yet I supposed it necessary to send to you Epaphroditus, my
           brother, and companion in labour, and fellowsoldier, but your
           messenger, and he that ministered to my wants.

50:002:026 For he longed after you all, and was full of heaviness,
           because that ye had heard that he had been sick.

50:002:027 For indeed he was sick nigh unto death: but God had mercy on
           him; and not on him only, but on me also, lest I should have
           sorrow upon sorrow.

50:002:028 I sent him therefore the more carefully, that, when ye see him
           again, ye may rejoice, and that I may be the less sorrowful.

50:002:029 Receive him therefore in the Lord with all gladness; and hold
           such in reputation:

50:002:030 Because for the work of Christ he was nigh unto death, not
           regarding his life, to supply your lack of service toward me.

50:003:001 Finally, my brethren, rejoice in the Lord. To write the same
           things to you, to me indeed is not grievous, but for you it is

50:003:002 Beware of dogs, beware of evil workers, beware of the

50:003:003 For we are the circumcision, which worship God in the spirit,
           and rejoice in Christ Jesus, and have no confidence in the

50:003:004 Though I might also have confidence in the flesh. If any other
           man thinketh that he hath whereof he might trust in the flesh,
           I more:

50:003:005 Circumcised the eighth day, of the stock of Israel, of the
           tribe of Benjamin, an Hebrew of the Hebrews; as touching the
           law, a Pharisee;

50:003:006 Concerning zeal, persecuting the church; touching the
           righteousness which is in the law, blameless.

50:003:007 But what things were gain to me, those I counted loss for

50:003:008 Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the
           excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom
           I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but
           dung, that I may win Christ,

50:003:009 And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which
           is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ,
           the righteousness which is of God by faith:

50:003:010 That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and
           the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto
           his death;

50:003:011 If by any means I might attain unto the resurrection of the

50:003:012 Not as though I had already attained, either were already
           perfect: but I follow after, if that I may apprehend that for
           which also I am apprehended of Christ Jesus.

50:003:013 Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one
           thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and
           reaching forth unto those things which are before,

50:003:014 I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of
           God in Christ Jesus.

50:003:015 Let us therefore, as many as be perfect, be thus minded: and
           if in any thing ye be otherwise minded, God shall reveal even
           this unto you.

50:003:016 Nevertheless, whereto we have already attained, let us walk by
           the same rule, let us mind the same thing.

50:003:017 Brethren, be followers together of me, and mark them which
           walk so as ye have us for an ensample.

50:003:018 (For many walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell
           you even weeping, that they are the enemies of the cross of

50:003:019 Whose end is destruction, whose God is their belly, and whose
           glory is in their shame, who mind earthly things.)

50:003:020 For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look
           for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ:

50:003:021 Who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like
           unto his glorious body, according to the working whereby he is
           able even to subdue all things unto himself.

50:004:001 Therefore, my brethren dearly beloved and longed for, my joy
           and crown, so stand fast in the Lord, my dearly beloved.

50:004:002 I beseech Euodias, and beseech Syntyche, that they be of the
           same mind in the Lord.

50:004:003 And I intreat thee also, true yokefellow, help those women
           which laboured with me in the gospel, with Clement also, and
           with other my fellowlabourers, whose names are in the book of

50:004:004 Rejoice in the Lord alway: and again I say, Rejoice.

50:004:005 Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord is at

50:004:006 Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and
           supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known
           unto God.

50:004:007 And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall
           keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

50:004:008 Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever
           things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever
           things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever
           things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if
           there be any praise, think on these things.

50:004:009 Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and
           heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with

50:004:010 But I rejoiced in the Lord greatly, that now at the last your
           care of me hath flourished again; wherein ye were also
           careful, but ye lacked opportunity.

50:004:011 Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in
           whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content.

50:004:012 I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: every
           where and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to
           be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need.

50:004:013 I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.

50:004:014 Notwithstanding ye have well done, that ye did communicate
           with my affliction.

50:004:015 Now ye Philippians know also, that in the beginning of the
           gospel, when I departed from Macedonia, no church communicated
           with me as concerning giving and receiving, but ye only.

50:004:016 For even in Thessalonica ye sent once and again unto my

50:004:017 Not because I desire a gift: but I desire fruit that may
           abound to your account.

50:004:018 But I have all, and abound: I am full, having received of
           Epaphroditus the things which were sent from you, an odour of
           a sweet smell, a sacrifice acceptable, wellpleasing to God.

50:004:019 But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches
           in glory by Christ Jesus.

50:004:020 Now unto God and our Father be glory for ever and ever. Amen.

50:004:021 Salute every saint in Christ Jesus. The brethren which are
           with me greet you.

50:004:022 All the saints salute you, chiefly they that are of Caesar's

50:004:023 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.

Book 51 – Colossians

51:001:001 Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, and
           Timotheus our brother,

51:001:002 To the saints and faithful brethren in Christ which are at
           Colosse: Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father and
           the Lord Jesus Christ.

51:001:003 We give thanks to God and the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,
           praying always for you,

51:001:004 Since we heard of your faith in Christ Jesus, and of the love
           which ye have to all the saints,

51:001:005 For the hope which is laid up for you in heaven, whereof ye
           heard before in the word of the truth of the gospel;

51:001:006 Which is come unto you, as it is in all the world; and
           bringeth forth fruit, as it doth also in you, since the day ye
           heard of it, and knew the grace of God in truth:

51:001:007 As ye also learned of Epaphras our dear fellowservant, who is
           for you a faithful minister of Christ;

51:001:008 Who also declared unto us your love in the Spirit.

51:001:009 For this cause we also, since the day we heard it, do not
           cease to pray for you, and to desire that ye might be filled
           with the knowledge of his will in all wisdom and spiritual

51:001:010 That ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being
           fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge
           of God;

51:001:011 Strengthened with all might, according to his glorious power,
           unto all patience and longsuffering with joyfulness;

51:001:012 Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be
           partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light:

51:001:013 Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath
           translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son:

51:001:014 In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the
           forgiveness of sins:

51:001:015 Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every

51:001:016 For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and
           that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be
           thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all
           things were created by him, and for him:

51:001:017 And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.

51:001:018 And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the
           beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he
           might have the preeminence.

51:001:019 For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness

51:001:020 And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him
           to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether
           they be things in earth, or things in heaven.

51:001:021 And you, that were sometime alienated and enemies in your mind
           by wicked works, yet now hath he reconciled

51:001:022 In the body of his flesh through death, to present you holy
           and unblameable and unreproveable in his sight:

51:001:023 If ye continue in the faith grounded and settled, and be not
           moved away from the hope of the gospel, which ye have heard,
           and which was preached to every creature which is under
           heaven; whereof I Paul am made a minister;

51:001:024 Who now rejoice in my sufferings for you, and fill up that
           which is behind of the afflictions of Christ in my flesh for
           his body's sake, which is the church:

51:001:025 Whereof I am made a minister, according to the dispensation of
           God which is given to me for you, to fulfil the word of God;

51:001:026 Even the mystery which hath been hid from ages and from
           generations, but now is made manifest to his saints:

51:001:027 To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory
           of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you,
           the hope of glory:

51:001:028 Whom we preach, warning every man, and teaching every man in
           all wisdom; that we may present every man perfect in Christ

51:001:029 Whereunto I also labour, striving according to his working,
           which worketh in me mightily.

51:002:001 For I would that ye knew what great conflict I have for you,
           and for them at Laodicea, and for as many as have not seen my
           face in the flesh;

51:002:002 That their hearts might be comforted, being knit together in
           love, and unto all riches of the full assurance of
           understanding, to the acknowledgement of the mystery of God,
           and of the Father, and of Christ;

51:002:003 In whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.

51:002:004 And this I say, lest any man should beguile you with enticing

51:002:005 For though I be absent in the flesh, yet am I with you in the
           spirit, joying and beholding your order, and the stedfastness
           of your faith in Christ.

51:002:006 As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk
           ye in him:

51:002:007 Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith, as ye
           have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving.

51:002:008 Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain
           deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the
           world, and not after Christ.

51:002:009 For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.

51:002:010 And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all
           principality and power:

51:002:011 In whom also ye are circumcised with the circumcision made
           without hands, in putting off the body of the sins of the
           flesh by the circumcision of Christ:

51:002:012 Buried with him in baptism, wherein also ye are risen with him
           through the faith of the operation of God, who hath raised him
           from the dead.

51:002:013 And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of
           your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having
           forgiven you all trespasses;

51:002:014 Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against
           us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way,
           nailing it to his cross;

51:002:015 And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew
           of them openly, triumphing over them in it.

51:002:016 Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in
           respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath

51:002:017 Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of

51:002:018 Let no man beguile you of your reward in a voluntary humility
           and worshipping of angels, intruding into those things which
           he hath not seen, vainly puffed up by his fleshly mind,

51:002:019 And not holding the Head, from which all the body by joints
           and bands having nourishment ministered, and knit together,
           increaseth with the increase of God.

51:002:020 Wherefore if ye be dead with Christ from the rudiments of the
           world, why, as though living in the world, are ye subject to

51:002:021 (Touch not; taste not; handle not;

51:002:022 Which all are to perish with the using;) after the
           commandments and doctrines of men?

51:002:023 Which things have indeed a shew of wisdom in will worship, and
           humility, and neglecting of the body: not in any honour to the
           satisfying of the flesh.

51:003:001 If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are
           above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God.

51:003:002 Set your affection on things above, not on things on the

51:003:003 For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God.

51:003:004 When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also
           appear with him in glory.

51:003:005 Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth;
           fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil
           concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry:

51:003:006 For which things' sake the wrath of God cometh on the children
           of disobedience:

51:003:007 In the which ye also walked some time, when ye lived in them.

51:003:008 But now ye also put off all these; anger, wrath, malice,
           blasphemy, filthy communication out of your mouth.

51:003:009 Lie not one to another, seeing that ye have put off the old
           man with his deeds;

51:003:010 And have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge
           after the image of him that created him:

51:003:011 Where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor
           uncircumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond nor free: but Christ
           is all, and in all.

51:003:012 Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved,
           bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness,

51:003:013 Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man
           have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so
           also do ye.

51:003:014 And above all these things put on charity, which is the bond
           of perfectness.

51:003:015 And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which
           also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful.

51:003:016 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom;
           teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and
           spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the

51:003:017 And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of
           the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.

51:003:018 Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as it is fit
           in the Lord.

51:003:019 Husbands, love your wives, and be not bitter against them.

51:003:020 Children, obey your parents in all things: for this is well
           pleasing unto the Lord.

51:003:021 Fathers, provoke not your children to anger, lest they be

51:003:022 Servants, obey in all things your masters according to the
           flesh; not with eyeservice, as menpleasers; but in singleness
           of heart, fearing God;

51:003:023 And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not
           unto men;

51:003:024 Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the
           inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ.

51:003:025 But he that doeth wrong shall receive for the wrong which he
           hath done: and there is no respect of persons.

51:004:001 Masters, give unto your servants that which is just and equal;
           knowing that ye also have a Master in heaven.

51:004:002 Continue in prayer, and watch in the same with thanksgiving;

51:004:003 Withal praying also for us, that God would open unto us a door
           of utterance, to speak the mystery of Christ, for which I am
           also in bonds:

51:004:004 That I may make it manifest, as I ought to speak.

51:004:005 Walk in wisdom toward them that are without, redeeming the

51:004:006 Let your speech be alway with grace, seasoned with salt, that
           ye may know how ye ought to answer every man.

51:004:007 All my state shall Tychicus declare unto you, who is a beloved
           brother, and a faithful minister and fellowservant in the

51:004:008 Whom I have sent unto you for the same purpose, that he might
           know your estate, and comfort your hearts;

51:004:009 With Onesimus, a faithful and beloved brother, who is one of
           you. They shall make known unto you all things which are done

51:004:010 Aristarchus my fellowprisoner saluteth you, and Marcus,
           sister's son to Barnabas, (touching whom ye received
           commandments: if he come unto you, receive him;)

51:004:011 And Jesus, which is called Justus, who are of the
           circumcision. These only are my fellowworkers unto the kingdom
           of God, which have been a comfort unto me.

51:004:012 Epaphras, who is one of you, a servant of Christ, saluteth
           you, always labouring fervently for you in prayers, that ye
           may stand perfect and complete in all the will of God.

51:004:013 For I bear him record, that he hath a great zeal for you, and
           them that are in Laodicea, and them in Hierapolis.

51:004:014 Luke, the beloved physician, and Demas, greet you.

51:004:015 Salute the brethren which are in Laodicea, and Nymphas, and
           the church which is in his house.

51:004:016 And when this epistle is read among you, cause that it be read
           also in the church of the Laodiceans; and that ye likewise
           read the epistle from Laodicea.

51:004:017 And say to Archippus, Take heed to the ministry which thou
           hast received in the Lord, that thou fulfil it.

51:004:018 The salutation by the hand of me Paul. Remember my bonds.
           Grace be with you. Amen.
