Ephesians 5:1 Be you therefore followers of God, as dear children; 

Ephesians 5:2 And walk in love, as Christ also has loved us and has given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet smelling savour.

Ephesians 5:3 But fornication and all uncleanness, or covetousness let it not be once.(word 'once' not in original).named among you as becomes saints;

Ephesians 5:4 Neither filthiness nor foolish talking.(learn about conversation).nor jesting.(humor but in a bad sense; humor is good).which are not convenient, but rather giving of thanks.

Ephesians 5:5 For this you know that no whoremonger nor unclean person nor covetous man who is an idolater has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God.

Ephesians 5:6 Let no man deceive you with vain words. For because of these things comes the wrath of.(Romans 9:22).God upon the children of disobedience.

Ephesians 5:7 Be not you therefore partakers with them.

Ephesians 5:8 For you were sometimes darkness, but now are you light in the Lord. Walk as children of light..(how?)

Ephesians 5:9 For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth.

Ephesians 5:10 Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord..(Acts 17:11)

Ephesians 5:11 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness.(stay away from works of darkness or, love the sinner but not the sins:.2Corinthians 6:14; don't allow your ego to govern your existence and your decisions:.Isaiah 5:20; how not to have fellowship with the works of darkness), but rather reprove.(original also gives 'convince', 'tell the fault to', 'see where it is faulty'; be of the mind to see where others may be wrong; it's like a plant, it can't bear 'fruit' without light; be careful getting after people for not being in the light, that is, those who do wrong things, why? John 7:7; know that those who are on the evil side have, because of the life they have lived, found no answers to it and so probably gave themselves over to life as it is they saw it to be, in time encrusting their good hearts (1Timothy 4:2 "...having their conscience seared with a hot iron"), so much so, they have become severed from their soul's connection with the 'big' Soul).them.(word 'them' is not in the original, but implied).

1Corinthians 5:9-13; Galatians 5:19-21; 6:8; Ephesians 6:12; Romans 1:29-32; 6:13,21; 1Timothy 5:20.

Ephesians 5:12 For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret..(John 3:19,20; Jude 1:10)

Ephesians 5:13 But all things that are reproved are made manifest manifest by the light. For whatsoever does make manifest is light.

Ephesians 5:14 Wherefore he said, Awake you that sleep.(asleep to what?).and arise from the dead.(being asleep at the ego level of life is here equated to being as good as dead).and Christ will give you light.(Isaiah 60:1; 2Peter 1:19).

Ephesians 5:15 See then that you walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise.(Titus 2:15),

Ephesians 5:16 Redeeming.(make good use of your time).the time, because the days are evil.

Ephesians 5:17 Wherefore be you not unwise, but understanding.(original 'bring together in your mind').what the will of the Lord is.

Ephesians 5:18 And be not drunk with wine.(Habakkuk 2:15), wherein is excess, but be filled.(word "filled" can just as easily mean 'fulfilled').with the Spirit. 

Ephesians 5:19.Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs(songs with words that put one's attention on the things of Creator-God), singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord; 

Ephesians 5:20 Giving thanks always for.all.things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Emmanuel the Christ;.(what does."in the name" mean?)

Ephesians 5:21 Submitting yourselves one to another.(cooperation).in the fear.(a better translation of the word fear would be awareness of and respect toward the greatness of God).of God..('in the fear of God' here means that whichever one of you, the woman or the man, in the matter.at hand, is closest to the high consciousness.benchmark that would apply) 

Ephesians 5:22.Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord.

Ephesians 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.(original Greek is 'deliverer', 'preserver').of the body.

Ephesians 5:24 Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing.

Doesn't say that a man is to control and bend a woman to his will, but rather, that being a unit, they have the ability to forge ahead spiritually when they work together, for example, a car has many parts that have been designed to functon together; if you put the gear selector in Drive and the selector said no, I'm not going forward, I'm going backward and at other times I'm not moving at all, well then, what good is the whole machine? it's useless as a unit; each part is subject to the working of all the other parts if its function is to be as intended by its design.

Ephesians 5:25 Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church and gave himself for it;

Ephesians 5:26 That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word.(washing of water by the word:.Hebrews 10:22).

Ephesians 5:27 That he might present it to himself.(understand what 'Christ' is).a glorious church.(what is the church?), not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing, but that it should be holy and without blemish.

Ephesians 5:28 So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loves his wife loves himself.

Ephesians 5:29 For no man ever yet hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, even as the Lord the church.(how?).

Ephesians 5:30 For we are members of his body, of his flesh and of his bones.

Ephesians 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.

Ephesians 5:32 This is a great mystery. But I speak concerning Christ and the church.

Ephesians 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.
