3:1  If then you were raised-with Christ, be seeking the things above where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God.
3:2  Be thinking the things above, not the things upon the earth.
3:3  For you died, and your life has been hidden with Christ in God.
3:4  When Christ appears— your life— then you also will appear with Him in glory.
3:5  Therefore, put-to-death your body-part things on earth— sexual-immorality, impurity, passion, evil desire, and greed, which is idolatry—
3:6  because of which things the wrath of God is coming upon the sons of  disobedience,
3:7  in which things you also formerly walked when you were living in these things.
3:8  But now you also, lay-aside all these things— wrath, anger, malice, blasphemy, filthy-language from your mouth;
3:9  do not be lying to one another— having stripped-off the old person with his practices,
3:10  and having put-on the new person being renewed to knowledge in-accordance-with the image of the One having created him,
3:11  where there is no Greek and Jew, circumcised and uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave, free, but Christ is all things and in all persons.
3:12  Therefore, as chosen ones of God, holy and having been loved, put-on deep-feelings of compassion, kindness, humblemindedness, gentleness, patience,
3:13  bearing-with one another, and forgiving each other— if anyone has a complaint against anyone. Just as indeed the Lord forgave you, so also you forgive.
3:14  And over all these things put on love, which is the bond of  perfection.
3:15  And let the peace of  Christ be arbitrating in your hearts— into which indeed you were called in one body. And be thankful.
3:16  Let the word of Christ be dwelling in you richly, with all wisdom teaching and admonishing each other with psalms, hymns, spiritual songs; with gratitude singing with your hearts to God.
3:17  And everything, whatever thing you may do in word or in deed, do all things in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving-thanks to God the Father through Him.
3:18  Wives, be subject to your husbands, as it is fitting in the Lord.
3:19  Husbands, be loving your wives, and do not be bitter toward them.
3:20  Children, be obeying your parents in all things, for this is pleasing in the Lord.
3:21  Fathers, do not be provoking your children, in order that they may not be discouraged.
3:22  Slaves, be obeying your masters according-to the flesh in all things, not with eye-service as people-pleasers, but in sincerity of heart, fearing the Lord.
3:23  Whatever you do, be working from the soul as for the Lord and not for people,
3:24  knowing that from the Lord you will receive the payback of  the inheritance. You are serving the Lord Christ!
3:25  For the one doing-wrong will receive-back what he did-wrong, and there is no respect-of-persons.
