Colossians 3:8–17

  2. Do not lie to one another,
        seeing as you have stripped off the old man with his practices,
  3.     and have clothed yourself with the new man that is renewed
    to a grasp of the truth according to the image of him who created it,
  4.     where there is not Greek and Jew, circumcised and uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave, free
        but Christ is all and in all.
  5. Therefore, as the chosen of God, holy and beloved, clothe yourself with
    tender mercies, kindness, humility, gentleness, longsuffering;
