1Therefore, be imitators of Hashem as beloved yeladim, 2And fier zich (comport oneself) in your derech in ahavah, as also Moshiach had ahavah for us and gave Himself up on behalf of us as a korban and zevach to Hashem for a RE'ACH HANNICHOACH ("a pleasant aroma" BERESHIS 8:21). 3But do not let zenut (fornication) or anything of tumah (uncleanness) or chamdanut (covetousness) even be named among you, as is proper for Kadoshim. 4And also let there be nothing that is an ERVAT DAVAR (indecent thing) or the tipshus (foolery) or foolish talking of letzim (coarse jesting) or shtiklech (misconduct), which are not fitting, but rather hodayah (thanksgiving). 5For of this you have da'as vada (with certainty), that every zoneh (fornicator) or impure person or covetous person (chamdanut is avodah zarah, avodah elilim) does not have a nachalah in the Malchut of Rebbe, Melech HaMoshiach and of Hashem. 6Let no one deceive you with empty dvarim. For, because of these things the Charon Af Hashem comes upon the Bnei HaMeri (sons of Rebellion). 7Therefore, do not be shuttafim (partners) with them. 8For you were once Choshech, but now you are Ohr (Light) in Hashem. Fier zich (comport oneself) in your derech as yeladim of HaOhr. 9For the p'ri HaOhr is in doing chesed and tzedek and emes, 10Proving that which is well-pleasing be'einei Hashem (in the eyes of G-d). 11And do not involve yourself in the ma'asei haChoshech (works of darkness), those works without p'ri; but rather even expose them. 12For as to the things being done by them under cover of secrecy, it brings bushah (shame) and is a bizayon (disgrace) even to speak of them. 13But everything being exposed by HaOhr (Light) becomes visible, 14For everything becoming visible is HaOhr (Light); therefore here is the meaning of these words, KUMI, ("Rise up!" YESHAYAH 51:17; 60:1), sleeper, and arise from the MESIM" YESHAYAH 26:19) AND Moshiach WILL SHINE ON YOU (YESHAYAH 60:1 2). [MALACHI 4:2] 15Therefore, fier zich (comport oneself) in your derech with a careful walk, not as kesilim (fools) but as chachamim (wise ones), 16Redeeming the time, because the yamim are ra'im. 17Therefore, do not be foolish, but have binah of what the ratzon Hashem is. 18And do not become a shikker with schnapps, in which is dissipation, but be filled with the Ruach Hakodesh, [VAYIKRA 10:9; MISHLE 20:1; YESHAYAH 28:7] 19Speaking to one another in Tehillim and shirim and hymns and neshamah niggunim mi Ruach Hakodesh (soul melodies from the Ruach Hakodesh), singing and making melody in your levavot to Adonoi, [TEHILLIM 27:6] 20Giving todot always for everything to Eloheinu, even Avinu b'Shem Rebbe, Melech HaMoshiach Yehoshua, [IYOV 1:21; TEHILLIM 34:1] 21Being submissive to one another in the yirat HaMoshiach. 22Nashim (wives), make yourselves accountable to your ba'alim (husbands) as to Adoneinu, [BERESHIS 3:16] 23Because a ba'al (husband) is rosh of the isha as also Moshiach is rosh of the Brit Chadasha Kehillah, being Himself the Go'el (Savior) of HaGuf (the Body of Moshiach). [BERESHIS 47:18; TEHILLIM 16:9-10; IYOV 19:25-27; YESHAYAH 53:11] 24But as the Brit Chadasha Kehillah is accountable to Moshiach, so also the nashim should be to their ba'alim in everything. 25Ba'alim, have ahavah for your nashim, as also Rebbe, Melech HaMoshiach has ahavah for the Brit Chadasha Kehillah and gave Himself up on behalf of her, 26That He might bring her to kedushah, having given her tohorah (purification) by the tevilah of the mikveh mayim of the Dvar Hashem, 27That he [as a Choson] might present to Himself [as His Kallah] the Brit Chadasha Kehillah in all her kavod TAMIM (unblemished, SHEMOT 12:5; VAYIKRA 22:20; YESHAYAH 53:7 9; SHIR HASHIRIM) and without wrinkle or any such things, but that she may be kedoshah and without blemish. 28So also the ba'alim ought to show ahavah for their own nashim as their own gufim [BERESHIS 2:23-24]; the one with ahavah for his own isha has ahavah for himself, 29For no one ever had sin'as chinom for his own basar but nourishes and cherishes it, just as Rebbe, Melech HaMoshiach also does the Brit Chadasha Kehillah, 30Because we are evarim of HaGuf HaMoshiach. 31AL KEN YA'AZAV ISH ES AVIV V'ES IMMO V'DAVAK BE'ISHTO V'HAYU LEVASAR ECHAD ("Because of this a man will leave his father and his mother and will be joined to the wife of him and the two will be one basar.") [BERESHIS 2:24] 32This is a sod hagadol, but I am referring to Rebbe, Melech HaMoshiach and the Brit Chadasha Kehillah. [SHIR HASHIRIM 3:6-4:12; BERESHIS 2:23,24; 24:1-7; 41:45; 47:18; SHEMOT 2:21; RUTH 1:16-17; 3:9] 33Each of you, however, should show ahavah for his isha as himself, and an isha should reverence her ba'al (husband).
