The KJV Bible With Strong's References:

Ephesians 4

4:1   I therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you that ye walk worthy of the vocation wherewith ye are called,
4:2   With all lowliness and meekness, with longsuffering, forbearing one another in love;
4:3   Endeavouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.
4:4  There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling;
4:5   One Lord, one faith, one baptism,
4:6   One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.
4:7   But unto every one of us is given grace according to the measure of the gift of Christ.
4:8   Wherefore he saith, When he ascended up on high, he led captivity captive, and gave gifts unto men.
4:9   (Now that he ascended, what is it but that he also descended first into the lower parts of the earth?
4:10   He that descended is the same also that ascended up far above all heavens, that he might fill all things.)
4:11   And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers;
4:12   For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:
4:13   Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ:
4:14   That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness *, whereby they lie in wait to deceive;
4:15   But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ:
4:16   From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part *, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love.
4:17   This I say therefore, and testify in the Lord, that ye henceforth walk not as *  other Gentiles walk, in the vanity of their mind,
4:18  Having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart:
4:19   Who being past feeling have given themselves over unto lasciviousness, to work all uncleanness with greediness.
4:20   But ye have not so learned Christ;
4:21  If so be that ye have heard him, and have been taught by him, as the truth is in Jesus:
4:22  That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts;
4:23   And be renewed in the spirit of your mind;
4:24   And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.
4:25   Wherefore putting away lying, speak every man truth with his neighbour: for we are members one of another.
4:26  Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath:
4:27   Neither give place to the devil.
4:28   Let him that stole steal no more: but rather let him labour, working with his hands the thing which is good, that he may have to give to him that needeth *.
4:29   Let no *  corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers.
4:30   And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption.
4:31   Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice:
4:32   And be ye kind one to another *, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as *  God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you.
