3:1  Therefore if you have been raised with Christ, seek the things above, where · Christ is, seated at the right hand of God.
3:2  Set your minds on things above, not on things on · earth,
3:3  for you died and · your life is hidden with · Christ in · God.
3:4  When · Christ, who is your life, appears, · then you also will appear with him in glory.
3:5  Therefore put to death · whatever · is earthly · in you: sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desire, and · covetousness, which is idolatry.
3:6  Because of these, the wrath of God is coming upon the sons of disobedience.
3:7  And in them you also once walked, when you were living among them.
3:8  But now you must put away · all those things: anger, rage, malice, slander, and filthy talk from · your mouth.
3:9  Stop lying to one another, since you have put off the old man with · its practices,
3:10  and have put on the new man, which is being renewed in knowledge after the image of its creator.
3:11  Here there is no longer Greek and Jew, circumcised and uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave and free, but Christ is · all and in all.
3:12  Therefore, as the elect of God, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with heartfelt compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience.
3:13  Bear with one another and forgive each another, should anyone have a complaint against another. As · the Lord has graciously forgiven you, so also you must forgive.
3:14  And cover all these virtues with love, which is the bond that leads to perfection.
3:15  And let the peace of Christ be the ruling principle in · your heart, to which indeed you were called in one body. And be thankful.
3:16  Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom by means of psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs, singing with · gratitude in · your heart to God.
3:17  And whatever you do in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.
3:18  · Wives, be subject to your husbands, as is fitting in the Lord.
3:19  · Husbands, love your wives and do not become bitter toward them.
3:20  · Children, obey your parents in everything, for this is pleasing in the Lord.
3:21  · Fathers, do not provoke · your children, lest they become discouraged.
3:22  · Slaves, obey your earthly masters in every regard, not with a view to impressing others, as people-pleasers, but with sincerity of heart, fearing the Lord.
3:23  Whatever you do, do it heartily, as for the Lord, · not for men,
3:24  for you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as your reward. Serve the Lord Christ.
3:25  But the one who does wrong will be paid back for his wrong, and there is no favoritism.
