|<< Colossians 3 >>|
Aramaic Bible in Plain English
If therefore you are risen with The Messiah, seek that which is above, the place where The Messiah sits at the right side of God.
Feed on that which is above and not that which is in The Earth,
For you have died to yourselves and your lives are hidden with The Messiah in God.
And whenever The Messiah, who is our life, is revealed, then you also will be revealed with him in glory.
5Kill therefore your members that are in Earth: fornication, impurity, diseases, wicked desires, greed ( which is idol worship ),
6For because of these things, the anger of God comes upon his disobedient children.
7And you walked also in these things from the first, when you were employed in these things.
8But now put off from you all these things: anger, fury, wickedness, blasphemy, impure speech;
9Neither should you cheat one another, but put off the old man with all of his ways,
10And put on the new, who is made new by knowledge in the image of his Creator,
11Where there is neither Jew nor Aramaean, neither circumcision nor uncircumcision, neither Greeks nor Barbarians, neither Servant nor Freeman, but The Messiah is all and in every person.
12Put on, therefore, as the chosen ones of God, holy and beloved, mercy and compassion, kindness and humility of mind, gentleness and long-suffering;
13And be forbearing one to another and forgiving one another. But if anyone has an outrage against his neighbor, forgive just as The Messiah has forgiven you,
14And with all these things, love, which is the bond of perfection.
15And the peace of The Messiah will govern your hearts, to which you are called in one body; and give thanks to The Messiah.
16Teach and instruct your souls in the Psalms, that his word may dwell in you richly in all wisdom, and sing in your hearts with grace to God in praises and songs of The Spirit.
17And everything that you perform in word and in works, do in the name of our Lord Yeshua The Messiah and give thanks by him to God The Father.
18Wives, be subject to your husbands, as that is right in The Messiah.
19Husbands, love your wives and do not be bitter toward them.
20Children, obey your parents in all things, for thus it is pleasing before Our Lord.
21Parents, do not anger your children, lest they lose heart.
22Servants, obey your Masters of the body in all things, not outwardly as those who please men, but with a pure heart and in the awe of THE LORD JEHOVAH.
23And do all that you do with all your soul, as for Our Lord, and not as for the children of men.
24And know that you will receive from our Lord a reward in the inheritance, for you serve THE LORD JEHOVAH The Messiah.
25But he pays the wrongdoer according to what he does wrong, and there is no favoritism.
