Colossians 3 - AMP

2 And set your minds and keep them set on what is above (the higher things), not on the things that are on the earth. 3 For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. 4 When Christ, Who is our life, appears, then you also will appear with Him in glory. 5 So kill (deaden, Joseph Thayer, A Greek-English Lexicon.deprive of power) the evil desire lurking in your members : sexual vice, impurity, sensual appetites, unholy desires, and all greed and covetousness, for that is idolatry (the deifying of self and other created things instead of God). 6 It is on account of these that the anger of God is ever coming upon the sons of disobedience (those who are obstinately opposed to the divine will), 7 Among whom you also once walked, when you were living in and addicted to . 8 But now put away and rid yourselves of all these things: anger, rage, bad feeling toward others, curses and slander, and foulmouthed abuse and shameful utterances from your lips! 9 Do not lie to one another, for you have stripped off the old (unregenerate) self with its evil practices, 10 And have clothed yourselves with the new , which is renewed and remolded into knowledge after the image (the likeness) of Him Who created it. 11 There Marvin Vincent, Word Studies.is no room for and there can be neither Greek nor Jew, circumcised nor uncircumcised, barbarians or Scythians , nor slave or free man; but Christ is all and in all . 12 Clothe yourselves therefore, as God's own chosen ones (His own picked representatives), purified and holy and well-beloved tenderhearted pity and mercy, kind feeling, a lowly opinion of yourselves, gentle ways, patience . 13 Be gentle and forbearing with one another and, if one has a difference (a grievance or complaint) against another, readily pardoning each other; even as the Lord has forgiven you, so must you also . 14 And above all these love and enfold yourselves with the bond of perfectness . 15 And let the peace (soul harmony which comes) from Christ rule (act as umpire continually) in your hearts to which as one body you were also called . And be thankful (appreciative), . 16 Let the word Christ (the Messiah) have its home and dwell in you in richness, as you teach and admonish and train one another in all insight and intelligence and wisdom psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, making melody to God with grace in your hearts. 17 And whatever you do in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus and in His Person, giving praise to God the Father through Him. 18 Wives, be subject to your husbands , as is right and fitting and your proper duty in the Lord. 19 Husbands, love your wives and do not be harsh or bitter or resentful toward them. 20 Children, obey your parents in everything, for this is pleasing to the Lord. 21 Fathers, do not provoke or irritate or fret your children , lest they become discouraged and sullen and morose and feel inferior and frustrated. 22 Servants, obey in everything those who are your earthly masters, not only when their eyes are on you as pleasers of men, but in simplicity of purpose because of your reverence for the Lord and as a sincere expression of your devotion to Him. 23 Whatever may be your task, work at it heartily (from the soul), as for the Lord and not for men, 24 Knowing that it is from the Lord that you will receive the inheritance which is your reward. you are actually serving the Lord Christ (the Messiah). 25 For he who deals wrongfully will be punished for his wrongdoing. And there is no partiality .
