Colossians 3:12-14 Disciples’ Literal New Testament (DLNT)

Therefore, Clothe Yourself In Love, Christ’s Peace, God’s Word, And Thankfulness

12 Therefore, as chosen[a] ones of God, holy and having been loved, put-on[b] deep-feelings[c] of compassion, kindness, humblemindedness, gentleness, patience, 13 bearing-with one another, and forgiving each other— if anyone has a complaint against anyone. Just as indeed the Lord forgave you, so also you forgive. 14 And over[d] all these things put on love, which is the bond[e] of [f] perfection.


  1. Colossians 3:12 Or, elect, selected.
  2. Colossians 3:12 That is, like clothes.
  3. Colossians 3:12 Or, a heart.
  4. Colossians 3:14 Or, upon, in addition to.
