Do Not Grieve The Holy Spirit
In speaking with neighbors, in your temper, in your works and in your words.

Therefore, having put away falsehood,
let each one of you u speak the truth with his neighbor,
for v we are members one of another.
w Be angry
and do not sin;
do not let the sun go down on your anger,
and x give no opportunity to the devil.
Let the thief no longer steal,
but rather y let him labor,
z doing honest work with his own hands,
so a that he may have something to share with anyone in need.
b Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths,
but only such as is good for building up,
as fits the occasion,
that it may give c grace to those who hear.
And d do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God,
e by whom you were sealed for the day of f redemption.
Do not sin in anger.
Let him labor to share.
Speak the truth.
Speak good talk that gives grace.
