  16 G1805 [G5734] Redeeming G2540 the time, G3754 because G2250 the days G1526 [G5748] are G4190 evil.
  17 G1223 G5124 Therefore G1096 [G5737] be ye G3361 not G878 unwise, G235 but G4920 [G5723] understanding G5101 what G2307 the will G2962 of the Lord is.

  19 G2980 [G5723] Speaking G1438 to yourselves G5568 in psalms G2532 and G5215 hymns G2532 and G4152 spiritual G5603 songs, G103 [G5723] singing G2532 and G5567 [G5723] making melody G1722 in G5216 your G2588 heart G2962 to the Lord;
  20 G2168 [G5723] Giving thanks G3842 always G5228 for G3956 all things G2316 to God G2532 and G3962 the Father G1722 in G3686 the name G2257 of our G2962 Lord G2424 Jesus G5547 Christ;
  21 G5293 [G5746] Submitting yourselves G240 one to another G1722 in G5401 the fear G2316 of God.
  22 G1135 Wives, G5293 [G5732] submit yourselves G2398 to your own G435 husbands, G5613 as G2962 to the Lord.
  23 G3754 For G435 the husband G2076 [G5748] is G2776 the head G1135 of the wife, G2532 even G5613 as G5547 Christ G2776 is the head G1577 of the congregation: G2532 and G846 he G2076 [G5748] is G4990 the saviour G4983 of the body.
  24 G235 Therefore G5618 as G1577 the congregation G5293 [G5743] is subject G5547 to Christ, G3779 G2532 so G1135 let wives G2398 be to their own G435 husbands G1722 in G3956 every thing.
  25 G435 Husbands, G25 [G5720] love G1438 your G1135 wives, G2531 even as G5547 Christ G2532 also G25 [G5656] loved G1577 the congregation, G2532 and G3860 [G5656] gave G1438 himself G5228 for G846 it;
  26 G2443 That G846 he G37 [G5661] might sanctify G2511 [G5660] and cleanse it G3067 with the washing G5204 of water G1722 by G4487 the word,
  27 G2443 That G3936 [G5661] he might present G846 it G1438 to himself G1741 a glorious G1577 congregation, G3361 not G2192 [G5723] having G4696 spot, G2228 or G4512 wrinkle, G2228 or G5100 any G5108 such thing; G235 but G2443 that G5600 [G5753] it should be G40 holy G2532 and G299 without blemish.
  28 G3779 So G3784 [G5719] ought G435 men G25 [G5721] to love G1438 their G1135 wives G5613 as G1438 their own G4983 bodies. G25 [G5723] He that loveth G1438 his G1135 wife G25 [G5719] loveth G1438 himself.
  29 G1063 For G3762 no man G4218 ever yet G3404 [G5656] hated G1438 his own G4561 flesh; G235 but G1625 [G5719] nourisheth G2532 and G2282 [G5719] cherisheth G846 it, G2531 G2532 even as G2962 the Lord G1577 the congregation:
  30 G3754 For G2070 [G5748] we are G3196 members G846 of his G4983 body, G1537 of G846 his G4561 flesh, G2532 and G1537 of G846 his G3747 bones.
  31 G473 For G5127 this cause G2641 0 shall G444 a man G2641 [G5692] leave G846 his G3962 father G2532 and G3384 mother, G2532 and G4347 [G5701] shall be joined G4314 to G846 his G1135 wife, G2532 and G1417 they two G2071 [G5704] shall be G1519 G3391 one G4561 flesh.
  32 G5124 This G2076 [G5748] is G3173 a great G3466 mystery: G1161 but G1473 I G3004 [G5719] speak G1519 concerning G5547 Christ G1519 G2532 and G1577 the congregation.
  33 G4133 Nevertheless G2532 also G25 0 let G1520 G1538 each one G5210 of you G2596 in particular G3779 so G25 [G5720] love G1438 his G1135 wife G5613 even as G1438 himself; G1161 and G1135 the wife G2443 see that G5399 [G5741] she fear G435 her husband.

Ephesians 4:29

  29 G4550 0 Let G3361 G3956 no G4550 rotten G3056 communication G1607 [G5737] proceed G1537 out of G5216 your G4750 mouth, G235 but G1536 that which G18 is good G4314 to G5532 the use G3619 of edifying, G2443 that G1325 [G5632] it may give G5485 grace G191 [G5723] to the hearers.

Matthew 12:36

  36 G1161 { But G3004 [G5719] I say G5213 to you, G3754 That G3956 for every G692 idle G4487 utterance G3739 G1437 that G444 men G2980 [G5661] shall speak, G591 [G5692] they shall give G3056 account G4012 for G846 it G1722 in G2250 the day G2920 of judgment.}

Proverbs 26:18-19

  18 H3856 [H8700] As a mad H3384 [H8802] man who casteth H2131 firebrands, H2671 arrows, H4194 and death,
  19 H376 So is the man H7411 [H8765] that deceiveth H7453 his neighbour, H559 [H8804] and saith, H7832 [H8764] Am not I in sport?

Ephesians 5:4

  4 G2532 Neither G151 filthiness, G2532 nor G3473 foolish talking, G2228 nor G2160 jesting, G3588 which G433 0 are G3756 not G433 [G5723] befitting: G235 but G3123 rather G2169 giving of thanks.
