4 New English Bible (New Testament) Passage New Testament in Greek (UBS.Ed.26)

25Then throw off falsehood; speak the truth to each other, for all of us are the parts of one body.
Rules for the New Life Eph.4.25-5.5Διὸ ἀποθέμενοι τὸ ψεῦδος λαλεῖτε ἀλήθειαν ἕκαστος μετὰ τοῦ πλησίον αὐτοῦ, ὅτι ἐσμὲν ἀλλήλων μέλη.
26If you are angry, do not let anger lead you into sin, do not let sunset find you still nursing it; ὀργίζεσθε καὶ μὴ ἁμαρτάνετε· ὁ ἡλιος μὴ ἐπιδυέτω ἐπὶ τῷ παροργισμῷ ὑμῶν,
27leave no loop-hole for the devil.
 μηδὲ δίδοτε τόπον τῷ διαβόλῳ.
28The thief must give up stealing, and instead work hard and honestly with his own hands, so that he may have something to share with the needy.
 ὁ κλέπτων μηκέτι κλεπτέτω, μᾶλλον δὲ κοπιάτω ἐργαζόμενος ταῖς ἰδίαις χερσὶν τὸ ἀγαθόν, ἵνα ἐχῃ μεταδιδόναι τῷ χρείαν ἐχοντι.
29No bad language must pass your lips, but only what is good and helpful to the occasion, so that it brings a blessing to those who hear it. πᾶς λόγος σαπρὸς ἐκ τοῦ στόματος ὑμῶν μὴ ἐκπορευέσθω, ἀλλὰ εἰ τις ἀγαθὸς πρὸς οἰκοδομὴν τῆς χρείας, ἵνα δῷ χάριν τοῖς ἀκούουσιν.
30And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, for that Spirit is the seal with which you were marked for the day of our final liberation. καὶ μὴ λυπεῖτε τὸ Πνεῦμα τὸ ἀγιον τοῦ θεοῦ, ἐν ᾧ ἐσφραγίσθητε εἰς ἡμέραν ἀπολυτρώσεως.
31Have done with spite and passion, all angry shouting and cursing, and bad feeling of every kind.
 πᾶσα πικρία καὶ θυμὸς καὶ ὀργὴ καὶ κραυγὴ καὶ βλασφημία ἀρθήτω ἀφ' ὑμῶν σὺν πάσῃ κακίᾳ.
32Be generous to one another, tender-hearted, forgiving one another as God in Christ forgave you.
 γίνεσθε δὲ εἰς ἀλλήλους χρηστοί, εὐσπλαγχνοι, χαριζόμενοι ἑαυτοῖς καθὼς καὶ ὁ θεὸς ἐν Χριστῷ ἐχαρίσατο ὑμῖν.
5 1In a word, as God's dear children, try to be like him, γίνεσθε οὖν μιμηταὶ τοῦ θεοῦ, ὡς τέκνα ἀγαπητά,
2and live in love as Christ loved you, and gave himself up on your behalf as an offering and sacrifice whose fragrance is pleasing to God.
 καὶ περιπατεῖτε ἐν ἀγάπῃ, καθὼς καὶ ὁ Χριστὸς ἠγάπησεν ἡμᾶς καὶ παρέδωκεν ἑαυτὸν ὑπὲρ ἡμῶν προσφορὰν καὶ θυσίαν τῷ θεῷ εἰς ὀσμὴν εὐωδίας.
3Fornication and indecency of any kind, or ruthless greed, must not be so much as mentioned among you, as befits the people of God. πορνεία δὲ καὶ ἀκαθαρσία πᾶσα ἢ πλεονεξία μηδὲ ὀνομαζέσθω ἐν ὑμῖν, καθὼς πρέπει ἀγίοις,
4No coarse, stupid, or flippant talk; these things are out of place; you should rather be thanking God. καὶ αἰσχρότης καὶ μωρολογία ἢ εὐτραπελία, ἂ οὐκ ἀνῆκεν, ἀλλὰ μᾶλλον εὐχαριστία.
5For be very sure of this: no one given to fornication or indecency, or the greed which makes an idol of gain, has any share in the kingdom of Christ and of God.
 τοῦτο γὰρ ἰστε γινώσκοντες ὅτι πᾶς πόρνος ἢ ἀκάθαρτος ἢ πλεονέκτης, ὁ ἐστιν εἰδωλολάτρης, οὐκ ἐχει κληρονομίαν ἐν τῇ βασιλείᾳ τοῦ Χριστοῦ καὶ θεοῦ.
