English Revised Version

Colossians 3

He sheweth where we should seek Christ.

Colossians 3:1 If then ye were raised together with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated on the right hand of God. Colossians 3:2 Set your mind on the things that are above, not on the things that are upon the earth. Colossians 3:3 For ye died, and your life is hid with Christ in God. Colossians 3:4 When Christ, [who is] our life, shall be manifested, then shall ye also with him be manifested in glory.

He exhorteth to mortification,

Colossians 3:5 Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, passion, evil desire, and covetousness, the which is idolatry; Colossians 3:6 for which things' sake cometh the wrath of God upon the sons of disobedience; Colossians 3:7 in the which ye also walked aforetime, when ye lived in these things. Colossians 3:8 But now put ye also away all these; anger, wrath, malice, railing, shameful speaking out of your mouth: Colossians 3:9 lie not one to another; seeing that ye have put off the old man with his doings,

to put off the old man, and to put on Christ,

Colossians 3:10 and have put on the new man, which is being renewed unto knowledge after the image of him that created him: Colossians 3:11 where there cannot be Greek and Jew, circumcision and uncircumcision, barbarian, Scythian, bondman, freeman: but Christ is all, and in all.

exhorting to charity, humility, and other several duties.

Colossians 3:12 Put on therefore, as God's elect, holy and beloved, a heart of compassion, kindness, humility, meekness, longsuffering; Colossians 3:13 forbearing one another, and forgiving each other, if any man have a complaint against any; even as the Lord forgave you, so also do ye: Colossians 3:14 and above all these things [put on] love, which is the bond of perfectness. Colossians 3:15 And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to the which also ye were 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 with psalms [and] hymns [and] spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts unto God. Colossians 3:17 And whatsoever ye do, in word or in deed, [do] all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him. Colossians 3:18 Wives, be in subjection to your husbands, as is fitting 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 in the Lord. Colossians 3:21 Fathers, provoke not your children, that they be not discouraged. Colossians 3:22 Servants, obey in all things them that are your masters according to the flesh; not with eyeservice, as men-pleasers, but in singleness of heart, fearing the Lord: Colossians 3:23 whatsoever ye do, work heartily, as unto the Lord, and not unto men; Colossians 3:24 knowing that from the Lord ye shall receive the recompense of the inheritance: ye serve the Lord Christ. Colossians 3:25 For he that doeth wrong shall receive again for the wrong that he hath done: and there is no respect of persons.
