Ephesians 5 - 3: Let sexual immorality* and every sort of uncleanness or greediness not even be mentioned among you,+ just as is proper for holy people;+ 4 neither shameful conduct nor foolish talking nor obscene jesting+—things that are not befitting—but rather the giving of thanks.+ 5 For you know this, recognizing it for yourselves, that no sexually immoral person*+ or unclean person or greedy person,+ which means being an idolater, has any inheritance in the Kingdom of the Christ and of God.+
6 Let no man deceive you with empty words, for because of such things the wrath of God is coming upon the sons of disobedience. 7 Therefore, do not be sharers with them; 8 for you were once darkness, but you are now light+ in connection with the Lord.+ Go on walking as children of light, 9 for the fruitage of the light consists of every sort of goodness and righteousness and truth..
