5 Therefore put to death your members on the earth: fornication, uncleanness, passion, evil desire, and greed, which is idolatry.
5 Therefore, mortify your body, while it is upon the earth. For because of fornication, impurity, lust, evil desires, and avarice, which are a kind of service to idols,
5 Mortify therefore your earthly members: immorality, uncleanness, intemperate desires, evil lusts, and covetousness, for these are idolatry;

7 in which you yourselves once walked when you lived in them.
7 You, too, walked in these things, in times past, when you were living among them.
8 But now you yourselves are to put off all [these]: wrath, anger, malice, blasphemy, filthy language out of your mouth.
8 But now you must set aside all these things: anger, indignation, malice, blasphemy, and indecent speech from your mouth.
8 But now put off from you all these: anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, foul conversation.

10 and have put on the new man who is renewed in full knowledge according to the image of Him who created it,

10 And put on the new life which is renewed in knowledge after the pattern in which it was originally created

11 where there is neither Gentile nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarian nor Scythian, servant nor free. Instead, Christ is everything, in everyone.
12 Therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, put on hearts of compassion, kindness, humility, meekness, patience;
12 Put on therefore, as God`s elect, holy and beloved, a heart of compassion, kindness, lowliness, meekness, longsuffering;
13 forbearing one another and forgiving yourselves, if anyone should have a complaint against any; just as Christ forgave you, so you also [do].
13 Support one another, and, if anyone has a complaint against another, forgive one another. For just as the Lord has forgiven you, so also must you do.
14 But above all these things put on love, which is the bond of perfection.
14 And above all these things put on charity, which is the bond of perfectness.
15 And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to which also you were called in one body; and be thankful.
