5:1 Therfor be ye foloweris of God, as moost dereworthe sones;
5:2 and walke ye in loue, as Crist louyde vs, and yaf hym silf for vs an offryng and a sacrifice to God, in to the odour of swetnesse.
5:3 And fornycacioun, and al vnclennesse, or aueryce, be not named among you, as it bicometh holi men;
5:4 ethir filthe, or foli speche, or harlatrye, that perteyneth not to profit, but more doyng of thankyngis.
5:5 For wite ye this, and vndurstonde, that ech letchour, or vnclene man, or coueytouse, that serueth to mawmetis, hath not eritage in the kingdom of Crist and of God.
5:6 No man disseyue you bi veyn wordis; for whi for these thingis the wraththe of God cam on the sones of vnbileue.
5:7 Therfor nyle ye be maad parteneris of hem.
5:8 For ye weren sum tyme derknessis, but now `ye ben liyt in the Lord. Walke ye as the sones of liyt.
5:9 For the fruyt of liyt is in al goodnesse, and riytwisnesse, and treuthe.
5:10 And preue ye what `thing is wel plesynge to God.
5:11 And nyle ye comyne to vnfruytouse werkis of derknessis; but more repreue ye.
5:12 For what thingis ben don of hem in priuy, it is foule, yhe, to speke.
5:13 And alle thingis that ben repreuyd of the liyt, ben opynli schewid; for al thing that is schewid, is liyt.
5:14 For which thing he seith, Rise thou that slepist, and rise vp fro deth, and Crist schal liytne thee.
5:15 Therfor, britheren, se ye, hou warli ye schulen go;
5:16 not as vnwise men, but as wise men, ayenbiynge tyme, for the daies ben yuele.
5:17 Therfor nyle ye be maad vnwise, but vndurstondynge which is the wille of God.
5:18 And nyle ye be drunkun of wyn, in which is letcherie, but be ye fillid with the Hooli Goost; and speke ye to you silf in salmes,
5:19 and ymnes, and spiritual songis, syngynge and seiynge salm in youre hertis to the Lord;
5:20 euermore doynge thankingis for alle thingis in the name of oure Lord Jhesu Crist to God and to the fadir.
5:21 Be ye suget togidere in the drede of Crist.
5:22 Wymmen, be thei suget to her hosebondis,
5:23 as to the Lord, for the man is heed of the wymman, as Crist is heed of the chirche; he is sauyour of his bodi.
5:24 But as the chirche is suget to Crist, so wymmen to her hosebondis in alle thingis.
5:25 Men, loue ye youre wyues, as Crist louyde the chirche, and yaf hym silf for it, to make it holi;
5:26 and clenside it with the waisching of watir, in the word of lijf,
5:27 to yyue the chirche gloriouse to hym silf, that it hadde no wem, ne ryueling, or ony siche thing, but that it be hooli and vndefoulid.
5:28 So and men `schulen loue her wyues, as her owne bodies. He that loueth his wijf, loueth hym silf;
5:29 for no man hatide euere his owne fleisch, but nurischith and fostrith it, as Crist doith the chirche.
5:30 And we ben membris of his bodi, of his fleisch, and of his boonys.
5:31 For this thing a man schal forsake his fadir and modir, and he schal drawe to his wijf; and thei schulen be tweyne in o fleisch.
5:32 This sacrament is greet; yhe, Y seie in Crist, and in the chirche.
5:33 Netheles ye alle, ech man loue his wijf as hym silf; and the wijf drede hir hosebonde.
