Ephesians 5 - World English Bible with Greek
1 Be therefore imitators of God, as beloved children.
1 γίνεσθε οὗν μιμηταὶ τοῦ θεοῦ, ὡς τέκνα ἀγαπητά,
2 Walk in love, even as Christ also loved you, and gave himself up for us, an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet-smelling fragrance.
2 καὶ περιπατεῖτε ἐν ἀγάπῃ, καθὼς καὶ ὁ χριστὸς ἠγάπησεν ἡμᾶς καὶ παρέδωκεν ἑαυτὸν ὑπὲρ ἡμῶν προσφορὰν καὶ θυσίαν τῶ θεῶ εἰς ὀσμὴν εὐωδίας.
3 But sexual immorality, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not even be mentioned among you, as becomes saints;
3 πορνεία δὲ καὶ ἀκαθαρσία πᾶσα ἢ πλεονεξία μηδὲ ὀνομαζέσθω ἐν ὑμῖν, καθὼς πρέπει ἁγίοις,
4 nor filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor jesting, which are not appropriate; but rather giving of thanks.
4 καὶ αἰσχρότης καὶ μωρολογία ἢ εὐτραπελία, ἃ οὐκ ἀνῆκεν, ἀλλὰ μᾶλλον εὐχαριστία.
5 Know this for sure, that no sexually immoral person, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, has any inheritance in the Kingdom of Christ and God.
5 τοῦτο γὰρ ἴστε γινώσκοντες ὅτι πᾶς πόρνος ἢ ἀκάθαρτος ἢ πλεονέκτης, ὅ ἐστιν εἰδωλολάτρης, οὐκ ἔχει κληρονομίαν ἐν τῇ βασιλείᾳ τοῦ χριστοῦ καὶ θεοῦ.
6 Let no one deceive you with empty words. For because of these things, the wrath of God comes on the children of disobedience.
6 μηδεὶς ὑμᾶς ἀπατάτω κενοῖς λόγοις, διὰ ταῦτα γὰρ ἔρχεται ἡ ὀργὴ τοῦ θεοῦ ἐπὶ τοὺς υἱοὺς τῆς ἀπειθείας.
7 Therefore don't be partakers with them.
7 μὴ οὗν γίνεσθε συμμέτοχοι αὐτῶν·
8 For you were once darkness, but are now light in the Lord. Walk as children of light,
8 ἦτε γάρ ποτε σκότος, νῦν δὲ φῶς ἐν κυρίῳ· ὡς τέκνα φωτὸς περιπατεῖτε
9 for the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth,
9 _ ὁ γὰρ καρπὸς τοῦ φωτὸς ἐν πάσῃ ἀγαθωσύνῃ καὶ δικαιοσύνῃ καὶ ἀληθείᾳ _
10 proving what is well-pleasing to the Lord.
10 δοκιμάζοντες τί ἐστιν εὐάρεστον τῶ κυρίῳ·
11 Have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather even reprove them.
11 καὶ μὴ συγκοινωνεῖτε τοῖς ἔργοις τοῖς ἀκάρποις τοῦ σκότους, μᾶλλον δὲ καὶ ἐλέγχετε,
12 For the things which are done by them in secret, it is a shame even to speak of.
12 τὰ γὰρ κρυφῇ γινόμενα ὑπ᾽ αὐτῶν αἰσχρόν ἐστιν καὶ λέγειν·
13 But all things, when they are reproved, are revealed by the light, for everything that is revealed is light.
13 τὰ δὲ πάντα ἐλεγχόμενα ὑπὸ τοῦ φωτὸς φανεροῦται,
14 Therefore he says, "Awake, you who sleep, and arise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you."
14 πᾶν γὰρ τὸ φανερούμενον φῶς ἐστιν. διὸ λέγει, ἔγειρε, ὁ καθεύδων, καὶ ἀνάστα ἐκ τῶν νεκρῶν, καὶ ἐπιφαύσει σοι ὁ χριστός.
15 Therefore watch carefully how you walk, not as unwise, but as wise;
15 βλέπετε οὗν ἀκριβῶς πῶς περιπατεῖτε, μὴ ὡς ἄσοφοι ἀλλ᾽ ὡς σοφοί,
16 redeeming the time, because the days are evil.
16 ἐξαγοραζόμενοι τὸν καιρόν, ὅτι αἱ ἡμέραι πονηραί εἰσιν.
17 Therefore don't be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is.
17 διὰ τοῦτο μὴ γίνεσθε ἄφρονες, ἀλλὰ συνίετε τί τὸ θέλημα τοῦ κυρίου.
18 Don't be drunken with wine, in which is dissipation, but be filled with the Spirit,
18 καὶ μὴ μεθύσκεσθε οἴνῳ, ἐν ᾧ ἐστιν ἀσωτία, ἀλλὰ πληροῦσθε ἐν πνεύματι,
19 speaking to one another in psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs; singing, and singing praises in your heart to the Lord;
19 λαλοῦντες ἑαυτοῖς [ἐν] ψαλμοῖς καὶ ὕμνοις καὶ ᾠδαῖς πνευματικαῖς, ᾄδοντες καὶ ψάλλοντες τῇ καρδίᾳ ὑμῶν τῶ κυρίῳ,
20 giving thanks always concerning all things in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, to God, even the Father;
20 εὐχαριστοῦντες πάντοτε ὑπὲρ πάντων ἐν ὀνόματι τοῦ κυρίου ἡμῶν ἰησοῦ χριστοῦ τῶ θεῶ καὶ πατρί,
21 subjecting yourselves one to another in the fear of Christ.
21 ὑποτασσόμενοι ἀλλήλοις ἐν φόβῳ χριστοῦ.
22 Wives, be subject to your own husbands, as to the Lord.
22 αἱ γυναῖκες τοῖς ἰδίοις ἀνδράσιν ὡς τῶ κυρίῳ,
23 For the husband is the head of the wife, and Christ also is the head of the assembly, being himself the savior of the body.
23 ὅτι ἀνήρ ἐστιν κεφαλὴ τῆς γυναικὸς ὡς καὶ ὁ χριστὸς κεφαλὴ τῆς ἐκκλησίας, αὐτὸς σωτὴρ τοῦ σώματος.
24 But as the assembly is subject to Christ, so let the wives also be to their own husbands in everything.
24 ἀλλὰ ὡς ἡ ἐκκλησία ὑποτάσσεται τῶ χριστῶ, οὕτως καὶ αἱ γυναῖκες τοῖς ἀνδράσιν ἐν παντί.
25 Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the assembly, and gave himself up for it;
25 οἱ ἄνδρες, ἀγαπᾶτε τὰς γυναῖκας, καθὼς καὶ ὁ χριστὸς ἠγάπησεν τὴν ἐκκλησίαν καὶ ἑαυτὸν παρέδωκεν ὑπὲρ αὐτῆς,
26 that he might sanctify it, having cleansed it by the washing of water with the word,
26 ἵνα αὐτὴν ἁγιάσῃ καθαρίσας τῶ λουτρῶ τοῦ ὕδατος ἐν ῥήματι,
27 that he might present the assembly to himself gloriously, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.
27 ἵνα παραστήσῃ αὐτὸς ἑαυτῶ ἔνδοξον τὴν ἐκκλησίαν, μὴ ἔχουσαν σπίλον ἢ ῥυτίδα ἤ τι τῶν τοιούτων, ἀλλ᾽ ἵνα ᾖ ἁγία καὶ ἄμωμος.
28 Even so ought husbands also to love their own wives as their own bodies. He who loves his own wife loves himself.
28 οὕτως ὀφείλουσιν [καὶ] οἱ ἄνδρες ἀγαπᾶν τὰς ἑαυτῶν γυναῖκας ὡς τὰ ἑαυτῶν σώματα. ὁ ἀγαπῶν τὴν ἑαυτοῦ γυναῖκα ἑαυτὸν ἀγαπᾷ,
29 For no man ever hated his own flesh; but nourishes and cherishes it, even as the Lord also does the assembly;
29 οὐδεὶς γάρ ποτε τὴν ἑαυτοῦ σάρκα ἐμίσησεν, ἀλλὰ ἐκτρέφει καὶ θάλπει αὐτήν, καθὼς καὶ ὁ χριστὸς τὴν ἐκκλησίαν,
30 because we are members of his body, of his flesh and bones.
30 ὅτι μέλη ἐσμὲν τοῦ σώματος αὐτοῦ.
31 "For this cause a man will leave his father and mother, and will be joined to his wife. The two will become one flesh."
31 ἀντὶ τούτου καταλείψει ἄνθρωπος [τὸν] πατέρα καὶ [τὴν] μητέρα καὶ προσκολληθήσεται πρὸς τὴν γυναῖκα αὐτοῦ, καὶ ἔσονται οἱ δύο εἰς σάρκα μίαν.
32 This mystery is great, but I speak concerning Christ and of the assembly.
32 τὸ μυστήριον τοῦτο μέγα ἐστίν, ἐγὼ δὲ λέγω εἰς χριστὸν καὶ εἰς τὴν ἐκκλησίαν.
33 Nevertheless each of you must also love his own wife even as himself; and let the wife see that she respects her husband.
33 πλὴν καὶ ὑμεῖς οἱ καθ᾽ ἕνα ἕκαστος τὴν ἑαυτοῦ γυναῖκα οὕτως ἀγαπάτω ὡς ἑαυτόν, ἡ δὲ γυνὴ ἵνα φοβῆται τὸν ἄνδρα.
