walk in Ahava

5:1 Be you therefore followers of Elohim, as dear children;

5:2 And walk in love, as  Mashiach also has loved us, and has given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to Elohim for a sweetsmelling savour.

5:3 But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named among you, as becometh Set-Apart Ones;

5:4 Neither filthiness, nor silly talking, nor jesting, which are not convenient: but rather giving of thanks.

5:5 For this you know, that no whoremonger, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, has any inheritance in the kingdom of  Mashiach and of Elohim.

5:6 Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of Elohim upon the children of disobedience.

5:7 Be not you therefore partakers with them.

5:8 For you were sometimes darkness, but now are you light in Adonay: walk as children of light:

5:9 (For the fruit of the Ruach is in all goodness and righteousness and truth;)

5:10 Proving what is acceptable to Adonay.

5:11 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.

5:12 For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret.

5:13 But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the light: for whatsoever does make manifest is light.

5:14 Wherefore he said, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and  Mashiach shall give thee light.

5:15 See then that you walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise,

5:16 Redeeming the time, because the days are evil.

5:17 Wherefore be you not unwise, but understanding what the will of Adonay is.

5:18 And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit;

5:19 Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to Adonay;

5:20 Giving thanks always for all things to Elohim and ha AVI in the name of our Adonay Yehoshua (יהושע)  Mashiach;

Husbands and Wives

5:21 Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of Elohim.

5:22 Wives, submit yourselves to your own husbands, as to Adonay.

5:23 For the husband is the head of the wife, even as  Mashiach is the head of the Assembly : and he is the saviour of the body.

5:24 Therefore as the Assembly is subject to  Mashiach, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing.

5:25 Husbands, love your wives, even as  Mashiach also loved the Assembly , and gave himself for it;

5:26 That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the Dvar,

5:27 That he might present it to himself a glorious Assembly , not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be set apart and without blemish.

5:28 So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loves his wife loveth himself.

5:29 For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourishes and cherishes it, even as Adonay the Assembly :

5:30 For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones.

5:31 For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined to his wife, and they two shall be ONE flesh.

5:32 This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning  Mashiach and the Assembly .

5:33 Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and the wife see that she reverence her husband.
