NASB — Colossians 3 — KJV

Put On the New Self

1 Therefore if you have been araised up with Christ, keep seeking the things above, where Christ is, bseated at the right hand of God. 2 IaSet your mind on the things above, not on the things that are on earth. 3 For you have adied and your life is hidden with Christ in God. 4 When Christ, awho is our life, is revealed, bthen you also will be revealed with Him in glory.

5aTherefore Iconsider bthe members of your earthly body as dead to IIcimmorality, impurity, passion, evil desire, and greed, which IIIamounts to idolatry. 6 For it is because of these things that athe wrath of God will come Iupon the sons of disobedience, 7 and ain them you also once walked, when you were living Iin them. 8 But now you also, aput them all aside: banger, wrath, malice, slander, [and] cabusive speech from your mouth. 9 IaDo not lie to one another, since you blaid aside the old IIself with its [evil] practices, 10 and have aput on the new self who is being Ibrenewed to a true knowledge caccording to the image of the One who dcreated him— 11 [a renewal] in which athere is no [distinction between] Greek and Jew, bcircumcised and uncircumcised, Icbarbarian, Scythian, dslave and freeman, but eChrist is all, and in all.

He sheweth where we should seek Christ.

1 ¶ If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. 2 Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. 3 For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God. 4 When Christ, [who is] our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory.

He exhorteth to mortification,

5 Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry: 6 For which things' sake the wrath of God cometh on the children of disobedience: 7 In the which ye also walked some time, when ye lived in them. 8 But now ye also put off all these; anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy communication out of your mouth. 9 Lie not one to another, seeing that ye have put off the old man with his deeds;

to put off the old man, and to put on Christ,

10 And have put on the new [man], which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him: 11 Where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond [nor] free: but Christ [is] all, and in all.

exhorting to charity, humility, and other several duties.

12 Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering; 13 Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also [do] ye. 14 And above all these things [put on] charity, which is the bond of perfectness. 15 And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful. 16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. 17 And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, [do] all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him. 18 Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as it is fit in the Lord. 19 Husbands, love [your] wives, and be not bitter against them. 20 Children, obey [your] parents in all things: for this is well pleasing unto the Lord. 21 Fathers, provoke not your children [to anger], lest they be discouraged. 22 Servants, obey in all things [your] masters according to the flesh; not with eyeservice, as menpleasers; but in singleness of heart, fearing God: 23 And whatsoever ye do, do [it] heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men; 24 Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ. 25 But he that doeth wrong shall receive for the wrong which he hath done: and there is no respect of persons.
