Ephesians - Chapter 5
3 Among you there must be not even a mention of sexual vice or impurity in any of its forms, or greed: this would scarcely become the holy people of God!
5 For you can be quite certain that nobody who indulges in sexual immorality or impurity or greed -- which is worshipping a false god -- can inherit the kingdom of God.
7 Make sure that you do not throw in your lot with them.
8 You were darkness once, but now you are light in the Lord; behave as children of light,
10 Try to discover what the Lord wants of you,
12 The things which are done in secret are shameful even to speak of;
13 but anything shown up by the light will be illuminated
17 This is why you must not be thoughtless but must recognise what is the will of the Lord.
23 since, as Christ is head of the Church and saves the whole body, so is a husband the head of his wife;
25 Husbands should love their wives, just as Christ loved the Church and sacrificed himself for her
26 to make her holy by washing her in cleansing water with a form of words,
28 In the same way, husbands must love their wives as they love their own bodies; for a man to love his wife is for him to love himself.
31 This is why a man leaves his father and mother and becomes attached to his wife, and the two become one flesh.
