Colossians 3:5

Greek/English Interlinear with Strong’s Numbers


King James Version

Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry:
New King James Version

Therefore put to death your members which are on the earth: fornication, uncleanness, passion, evil desire, and covetousness, which is idolatry.
New American Standard Bible

Therefore consider the members of your earthly body as dead to immorality (fornication), impurity, passion, evil desire, and greed, which amounts to (is) idolatry.
New International Version

Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature: sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires and greed, which is idolatry.
The Amplified Bible

So kill (deaden, deprive of power) the evil desire lurking in your members [those animal impulses and all that is earthly in you that is employed in sin]: sexual vice, impurity, sensual appetites, unholy desires, and all greed and covetousness, for that is idolatry (the deifying of self and other created things instead of God).
Wuest’s Expanded Translation

By a once-for-all act, and at once, put to death your members which are upon the earth: fornication, impurity, depraved passion, wicked craving, and avarice, which is of such a nature as to be idolatry.
Phillips’ Modern English

Consider yourselves dead to worldly contacts: have nothing to do with sexual immorality, dirty-mindedness, uncontrolled passion, evil desire, and the lust for other people’s goods, which amounts to idolatry.
Williams’ Language of the People

So once for all put to death your lower, earthly nature with respect to sexual immorality, passion, evil desire, and greed, which is real idolatry.
