BE ye therefore followers of YAHUAH, as dear children; And walk in love, as MASHIACH also has loved us, and has given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to YAHUAH for a sweetsmelling savour.
But fornication: Idolatry; a forsaking of the true YAHUAH, and worshipping of idols. The incontinence or lewdness of unmarried persons, male or female; also, the criminal conversation of a married man with an unmarried woman.
and all uncleanness: Moral impurity; defilement by sin; sinfulness.
or covetousness: A strong desire after the possession of worldly things. let it not be once named among you, as becomes the qodeshiym; Neither filthiness: Corruption; pollution; defilement by sin; impurity.
nor foolish talking: wicked; sinful; acting without regard to the divine law and glory, or to one's own eternal happiness.
nor jesting: Joking; talking for diversion or merriment. which are not convenient: but rather giving of thanks. For this ye know, that no whoremonger: a person who has dealings with prostitutes, especially a sexually promiscuous man. nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater: A worshiper of idols; one who pays divine honors to images, statues, or representations of any thing made by hands; one who worships as a deity that which is not YAHUAH; a pagan.
has any inheritance in the Kingdom of MASHIACH and of YAHUAH. Let no man deceive you with vain words: Empty; worthless; having no substance, value or importance.
for because of these things comes the wrath of YAH upon the children of disobedience. Be not ye therefore partakers with them. For ye were in time past darkness, but now are ye light in YAHUAH: walk as children of light: (For the fruit of the RUACH is in all goodness and righteousness and truth;) Proving what is acceptable unto YAH. And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them. For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret. But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the light: for whatsoever does make manifest is light. Wherefore he says, Awake you that sleep, and arise from the dead, and MASHIACH shall give you light. See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, Redeeming the time, because the days are evil. Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of YAH is. And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the RUACH; Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to YAHUAH; Giving thanks always for all things unto YAHUAH and the Father in the name of our King YAHUSHA HA'MASHIACH; Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of YAHUAH.
Women, submit: To yield, resign or surrender to the power, will or authority of another.
yourselves unto your own men, as unto YAHUAH. For the man is the head of the woman, even as MASHIACH is the head of the called out assembly: and he is the Saviour of the body. Therefore as the called out assembly is subject unto MASHIACH, so let the women be to their own men in everything. Men, love your women, even as MASHIACH also loved the called out assembly, and gave himself for it; That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word, That he might present it to himself a glorious called out assembly, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish. So ought men to love their women as their own bodies. He that loves his woman loves himself. For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourishes and cherishes it, even as Yahusha the called out assembly: For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones. For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his woman, and they two shall be one flesh. This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning MASHIACH and the called out assembly. Nevertheless let everyone of you in particular so love his woman even as himself; and the woman see that she reverence her man.
