You used to walk in these [wild] ways,
in the life you once lived.
But now [that you are free of]
you must rid yourselves of
all such things as these:
- and filthy language from your lips.
Do not lie to each other,
since you have taken off your old [wild] self
with its practices and have
put on the new [free] self,
which is being renewed in knowledge
in the image of its Creator.
