Ephesians 5

Be you therefore followers of God (Elohim, יהוה (YHWH)), as dear children;

2 And walk in love, as the Messiah (haMashiach) also hath loved us, and hath given Himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to יהוה (YHWH) for a sweetsmelling savour.

3 But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named among you, as becometh holy people;

4 Neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor jesting, which are not convenient; but rather giving of thanks.

5 For this you know, that no whoremonger, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, hath any inheritance in the kingdom of our Messiah (Mashiach) and of יהוה (YHWH).

6 Let no man deceive you with vain words; for because of these things cometh the wrath of יהוה (YHWH) upon the children of disobedience.

7 Be not you therefore partakers with them.

8 For you were once darkness, but now are you light in the Lord (YHWH); walk as children of light,

9 For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth;

10 Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord (YHWH).

11 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.

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

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

14 Wherefore He saith, “Awake you that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and the Messiah (haMashiach) shall give you light.”

15 See then that you walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise,

16 Redeeming the time, because the days are evil.

17 Wherefore be you not unwise, but understanding what the will of God (Elohim, יהוה (YHWH)) is.

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

19 Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to יהוה (YHWH);

20 Giving thanks always for all things unto God (Elohim) and the Father in the name of our Lord (Adonai) YHWH haMashiach;

21 Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God (Elohim).

22 Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord (YHWH).

23 For the husband is the head of the wife, even as the Messiah (haMashiach) is the head of the assembly; and He is the Saviour of the body.

24 Therefore as the assembly is subject unto the Messiah (haMashiach), so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing.

25 Husbands, love your wives, even as the Messiah (haMashiach) also loved the assembly, and gave Himself for it;

26 That He might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word,

27 That He might present it to Himself a glorious assembly, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.

28 So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself.

29 For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Messiah (haMashiach) doesth the assembly;

30 For we are members of His body, of His flesh, and of His bones.

31 For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh.

32 This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning the Messiah (haMashiach) and the assembly.

33 Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and the wife sees that she reverences her husband.
