King James Bible : Colossians : Chapter 3  King James Bible : Colossians : Chapter 3

3:1
If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God.
3:2
Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.
3:3
For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God.
3:4
When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory.
3:5
Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry:
3:6
For which things’ sake the wrath of God cometh on the children of disobedience:
3:7
In the which ye also walked some time, when ye lived in them.
3:8
But now ye also put off all these; anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy communication out of your mouth.
3:9
Lie not one to another, seeing that ye have put off the old man with his deeds;
3:10
And have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him:
3:11
Where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond nor free: but Christ is all, and in all.
3:12
Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering;
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.
3:14
And above all these things put on charity, which is the bond of perfectness.
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.
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.
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.
3:18
Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as it is fit in the Lord.
3:19
Husbands, love your wives, and be not bitter against them.
3:20
Children, obey your parents in all things: for this is well pleasing unto the Lord.
3:21
Fathers, provoke not your children to anger, lest they be discouraged.
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;
3:23
And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men;
3:24
Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ.
3:25
But he that doeth wrong shall receive for the wrong which he hath done: and there is no respect of persons.
