People's Bible Notes for Ephesians 5:21


Eph 5:21 Submitting yourselves one to another.

    Whoso privily slanders his neighbor, him will I cut off: him that has a high look and a proud heart will not I suffer. Behold, I am against thee, O thou most proud, says the Lord GOD of hosts: for thy day is come, the time that I will visit thee. And the most proud shall stumble and fall, and none shall raise him up: and I will kindle a fire in his cities, and it shall devour all round about him.
