DAY 131 Ephesians 5-6, Proverbs 21:17-31

EPHESIANS
5:1
Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children;
5:2
And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweetsmelling savour.
5:3
But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named among you, as becometh saints;
5:4
Neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor jesting, which are not convenient: but rather giving of thanks.
5:5
For this ye know, that no whoremonger, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, hath any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God.
5:6
Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience.
5:7
Be not ye therefore partakers with them.
5:8
For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light:
5:9
(For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth;)
5:10
Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord.
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 doth make manifest is light.
5:14
Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light.
5:15
See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise,
5:16
Redeeming the time, because the days are evil.
5:17
Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord 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 the Lord;
5:20
Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ;
5:21
Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God.
5:22
Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord.
5:23
For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body.
5:24
Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing.
5:25
Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;
5:26
That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word,
5:27
That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.
5:28
So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself.
5:29
For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church:
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 unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh.
5:32
This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church.
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.
6:1
Children, obey your parents in the Lord: for this is right.
6:2
Honour thy father and mother; which is the first commandment with promise;
6:3
That it may be well with thee, and thou mayest live long on the earth.
6:4
And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.
6:5
Servants, be obedient to them that are your masters according to the flesh, with fear and trembling, in singleness of your heart, as unto Christ;
6:6
Not with eyeservice, as menpleasers; but as the servants of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart;
6:7
With good will doing service, as to the Lord, and not to men:
6:8
Knowing that whatsoever good thing any man doeth, the same shall he receive of the Lord, whether he be bond or free.
6:9
And, ye masters, do the same things unto them, forbearing threatening: knowing that your Master also is in heaven; neither is there respect of persons with him.
6:10
Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.
6:11
Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
6:12
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
6:13
Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
6:14
Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;
6:15
And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
6:16
Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.
6:17
And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:
6:18
Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;
6:19
And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel,
6:20
For which I am an ambassador in bonds: that therein I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.
6:21
But that ye also may know my affairs, and how I do, Tychicus, a beloved brother and faithful minister in the Lord, shall make known to you all things:
6:22
Whom I have sent unto you for the same purpose, that ye might know our affairs, and that he might comfort your hearts.
6:23
Peace be to the brethren, and love with faith, from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
6:24
Grace be with all them that love our Lord Jesus Christ in sincerity. Amen.

21:17
He that loveth pleasure shall be a poor man: he that loveth wine and oil shall not be rich.
21:18
The wicked shall be a ransom for the righteous, and the transgressor for the upright.
21:19
It is better to dwell in the wilderness, than with a contentious and an angry woman.
21:20
There is treasure to be desired and oil in the dwelling of the wise; but a foolish man spendeth it up.
21:21
He that followeth after righteousness and mercy findeth life, righteousness, and honour.
21:22
A wise man scaleth the city of the mighty, and casteth down the strength of the confidence thereof.

Whoso keepeth his mouth and his tongue keepeth his soul from troubles.
21:24
Proud and haughty scorner is his name, who dealeth in proud wrath.
21:25
The desire of the slothful killeth him; for his hands refuse to labour.
21:26
He coveteth greedily all the day long: but the righteous giveth and spareth not.
21:27
The sacrifice of the wicked is abomination: how much more, when he bringeth it with a wicked mind?
21:28
A false witness shall perish: but the man that heareth speaketh constantly.
21:29
A wicked man hardeneth his face: but as for the upright, he directeth his way.
21:30
There is no wisdom nor understanding nor counsel against the LORD.
21:31
The horse is prepared against the day of battle: but safety is of the LORD.
