The King James Version Bible

Ephesians 5:12-22

  1. For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret.

  2. But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the light: for whatsoever doth make manifest is light.

  3. Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light.

  4. See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise,

  5. Redeeming the time, because the days are evil.

  6. Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is.

  7. And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit;

  8. Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord;

  9. Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ;

  10. Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God.

  11. Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord.
