As I testify in the Lord,
That you no longer have to walk;
The way heathens have ignored,
The futile ways that they talk.
They are dark in understanding,
Alienated from life with God;
Ignorance from their demanding,
Idol worshipping that is fraud.
Ignorance that hardens the heart,
They have become callous in thought;
Impurity what they impart,
Of the teachings that Satan taught.
But it was not as learned through Christ,
Assuming you paid attention;
Through Jesus the truth is enticed,
Of offensive apprehension.
You were taught in your former way,
The way of life to lay aside;
Deceitful desires that stray,
Makes them unable to abide.
Renew the spirit of your mind,
Enabled to live the new life;
Produced by God to be aligned,
He guides you in the midst of strife.
So, put away any falsehood,
Speaking the truth with their neighbor;
To others to be understood,
One another through their labor.
So be angry but do not sin,
Let not anger see the sunset;
A chance for Satan to begin,
Allows for increasing your debt.
Allow the thief no longer steal,
Do honest work with your own hands;
For God has something to reveal,
If you abide by His commands.
Let no corrupting talk come out,
Only such good that can be built;
Never shedding of any doubt,
Confessed to be free from all guilt.
Put away bitterness and wrath,
Being kind and tenderhearted;
Stay on the straight and narrow path,
The direction God has charted.
