He exhorts them to unity, to put on the new man, and to fly sin.

[1] I therefore, a prisoner in the Lord, beseech you that you walk worthy of the vocation in which you are called, [2] With all humility and mildness, with patience, supporting one another in charity. [3] Careful to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. [4] One body and one Spirit; as you are called in one hope of your calling. [5] One Lord, one faith, one baptism.

[6] One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in us all. [7] But to every one of us is given grace, according to the measure of the giving of Christ. [8] Wherefore he saith: Ascending on high, he led captivity captive; he gave gifts to men. [9] Now that he ascended, what is it, but because he also descended first into the lower parts of the earth?

[32] And be ye kind one to another; merciful, forgiving one another, even as God hath forgiven you in Christ.
