1. Throw off old habits

4. Put away all falsehood

5. Do not let anger control you

6. Do not let the sun go down on your anger

7. Use your hands for honest work

8. Give generously

9. Let every word you say be good and helpful

10. Do not disappoint God by the way you live

11. Get rid of bitterness

12. Get rid of rage

13. Get rid of anger

14. Get rid of harsh and hateful words
