Paul said that they should put away falsehood, instead speak the truth. They should not let the sun go down on their anger. There should be no room for the devil. Thieves should stop stealing and do honest work. There should be no evil talk, but only grace filled words. They were not to grieve the Holy Spirit who had sealed them. There should not be any bitterness, wrath, anger, slander or malice among them. On the other hand, they should be kind, tenderhearted and forgiving.
