Colossians
Chapter 3





Colossians 3:1

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

Colossians 3:2

Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.

Colossians 3:3

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

Colossians 3:4

When Christ, [who is] our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory.

Colossians 3:5

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

Colossians 3:6

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

Colossians 3:7

In the which ye also walked some time, when ye lived in them.

Colossians 3:8

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

Colossians 3:9

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

Colossians 3:10

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

Colossians 3:11

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

Colossians 3:12

Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering;

Colossians 3:13

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

Colossians 3:14

And above all these things [put on] charity, which is the bond of perfectness.

Colossians 3:15

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

Colossians 3:16

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 Lord.

Colossians 3:17

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.

Colossians 3:18

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

Colossians 3:19

Husbands, love [your] wives, and be not bitter against them.

Colossians 3:20

Children, obey [your] parents in all things: for this is well pleasing unto the Lord.

Colossians 3:21

Fathers, provoke not your children [to anger], lest they be discouraged.

Colossians 3:22

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

Colossians 3:23

And whatsoever ye do, do [it] heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men;

Colossians 3:24

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

Colossians 3:25

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