THE BELIEVER'S DUTY TO THE PREEMINENT  Mashiach

3:1 If ye then be risen with  Mashiach, seek those things which are above, where  Mashiach sitteth on the right hand of Elohim.

3:2 Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.

3:3 For ye are dead, and your life is hid with  Mashiach in Elohim.

3:4 When  Mashiach, [who is] our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory.

3:5 Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry:

3:6 For which things' sake the wrath of Elohim cometh on the children of disobedience:

3:7 In the which ye also walked some time, when ye lived in them.

3:8 But now ye also put off all these; anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy communication out of your mouth.

3:9 Lie not one to another, seeing that ye have put off the old man with his deeds;

3:10 And have put on the new [man], which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him:

3:11 Where there is neither Yevani nor Yehudi, Brit Milah nor orlat basar (uncircumcised), Barbarian, Skuthes, bond [nor] free: but  Mashiach [is] all, and in all.

3:12 Put on therefore, as the elect of Elohim, set-apart and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering;

3:13 Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as  Mashiach forgave you, so also [do] ye.

3:14 And above all these things [put on] charity, which is the bond of perfectness.

3:15 And let the shalom of Elohim rule in your levavot, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful.

3:16 Let the word of  Mashiach dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your levavot to Adonay.

3:17 And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, [do] all in the name of Adonay Yehoshua (יהושע), giving thanks to Elohim and ha Avi by him.

3:18 Wives, submit yourselves to your own husbands, as it is fit in Adonay.

3:19 Husbands, love [your] wives, and be not bitter against them.

3:20 Children, obey [your] parents in all things: for this is well pleasing to Adonay.

3:21 Fathers, provoke not your children [to anger], lest they be discouraged.

3:22 Servants, obey in all things [your] masters according to the flesh; not with eyeservice, as menpleasers; but in singleness of heart, fearing Elohim:

3:23 And whatsoever ye do, do [it] heartily, as to Adonay, and not to men;

3:24 Knowing that of Adonay ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for you serve Adonay  Mashiach.

3:25 But he that does wrong shall receive for the wrong which he hath done: and there is no respect of persons.
