Colossians 1: 1-29

1  Paul,3972 an apostle652 of Jesus2424 Christ5547 by1223 the will2307 of God,2316 and2532 Timothy5095 our brother,80

2  To the3588 saints40 and2532 faithful4103 brethren80 in1722 Christ5547 which are at1722 Colosse:2857 Grace5485 be unto you,5213 and2532 peace,1515 from575 God2316 our2257 Father3962 and2532 the Lord2962 Jesus2424 Christ.5547

3  We give thanks2168 to God2316 and2532 the Father3962 of our2257 Lord2962 Jesus2424 Christ,5547 praying4336 always3842 for4012 you,5216

4  Since we heard191 of your5216 faith4102 in1722 Christ5547 Jesus,2424 and2532 of the3588 love26 which ye3588 have to1519 all3956 the3588 saints.40

5  For1223 the3588 hope1680 which is laid up606 for you5213 in1722 heaven,3772 whereof3739 ye heard before4257 in1722 the3588 word3056 of the3588 truth225 of the3588 gospel;2098

6  Which is come3918 unto1519 you,5209 as2531 it2532 is in1722 all3956 the3588 world;2889 and2532 2076 bringeth forth fruit,2592 as2531 it doth also2532 in1722 you,5213 since575 the3739 day2250 ye heard191 of it, and2532 knew1921 the3588 grace5485 of God2316 in1722 truth:225

7  As2531 ye also2532 learned3129 of575 Epaphras1889 our2257 dear27 fellow servant,4889 who3739 is2076 for5228 you5216 a faithful4103 minister1249 of Christ;5547

8  Who3588 also2532 declared1213 unto us2254 your5216 love26 in1722 the Spirit.4151

9  For1223 this cause5124 we2249 also,2532 since575 the3739 day2250 we heard191 it, do not3756 cease3973 to pray4336 for5228 you,5216 and2532 to desire154 that2443 ye might be filled4137 with the3588 knowledge1922 of his846 will2307 in1722 all3956 wisdom4678 and2532 spiritual4152 understanding;4907

10  That ye5209 might walk4043 worthy516 of the3588 Lord2962 unto1519 all3956 pleasing,699 being fruitful2592 in1722 every3956 good18 work,2041 and2532 increasing837 in1519 the3588 knowledge1922 of God;2316

11  Strengthened1412 with1722 all3956 might,1411 according2596 to his846 glorious1391 power,2904 unto1519 all3956 patience5281 and2532 longsuffering3115 with3326 joyfulness;5479

12  Giving thanks2168 unto the3588 Father,3962 which hath made us meet2427 2248 to be partakers1519 3310 of the3588 inheritance2819 of the3588 saints40 in1722 light:5457

13  Who3739 hath delivered4506 us2248 from1537 the3588 power1849 of darkness,4655 and2532 hath translated3179 us into1519 the3588 kingdom932 of his848 dear26 Son:5207

14  In1722 whom3739 we have2192 redemption629 through1223 his846 blood,129 even the3588 forgiveness859 of sins:266

15  Who3739 is2076 the image1504 of the3588 invisible517 God,2316 the firstborn4416 of every3956 creature:2937

16  For3754 by1722 him846 were all things3956 created,2936 that3588 are in1722 heaven,3772 and2532 that3588 are in1909 earth,1093 visible3707 and2532 invisible,517 whether1535 they be thrones,2362 or1535 dominions,2963 or1535 principalities,746 or1535 powers:1849 all things3956 were created2936 by1223 him,846 and2532 for1519 him:846

17  And2532 he846 is2076 before4253 all things,3956 and2532 by1722 him846 all things3956 consist.4921

18  And2532 he846 is2076 the3588 head2776 of the3588 body,4983 the3588 church:1577 who3739 is2076 the beginning,746 the firstborn4416 from1537 the3588 dead;3498 that2443 in1722 all3956 things he846 might have1096 the preeminence.4409

19  For3754 it pleased2106 the Father that in1722 him846 should all3956 fullness4138 dwell;2730

20  And,2532 having made peace1517 through1223 the3588 blood129 of his846 cross,4716 by1223 him846 to reconcile604 all things3956 unto1519 himself;848 by1223 him,846 I say, whether1535 they be things3588 in1909 earth,1093 or1535 things3588 in1722 heaven.3772

21  And2532 you,5209 that were5607 sometime4218 alienated526 and2532 enemies2190 in your mind1271 by1722 wicked4190 works,2041 yet1161 now3570 hath he reconciled604

22  In1722 the3588 body4983 of his848 flesh4561 through1223 death,2288 to present3936 you5209 holy40 and2532 unblamable299 and2532 unreprovable410 in his sight:2714 848

23  If1489 ye continue1961 in the3588 faith4102 grounded2311 and2532 settled,1476 and2532 be not3361 moved away3334 from575 the3588 hope1680 of the3588 gospel,2098 which3739 ye have heard,191 and which was preached2784 to1722 every3956 creature2937 which3588 is under5259 heaven;3772 whereof3739 I1473 Paul3972 am made1096 a minister;1249

24  Who3739 now3568 rejoice5463 in1722 my3450 sufferings3804 for5228 you,5216 and2532 fill up466 that which is behind5303 of the3588 afflictions2347 of Christ5547 in1722 my3450 flesh4561 for his body's sake,5228 846 4983 which is3603 the3588 church:1577

25  Whereof3739 I1473 am made1096 a minister,1249 according2596 to the3588 dispensation3622 of God2316 which is given1325 to me3427 for1519 you,5209 to fulfill4137 the3588 word3056 of God;2316

26  Even the3588 mystery3466 which hath been hid613 from575 ages165 and2532 from575 generations,1074 but1161 now3570 is made manifest5319 to his846 saints:40

27  To whom3739 God2316 would2309 make known1107 what5101 is the3588 riches4149 of the3588 glory1391 of this5127 mystery3466 among1722 the3588 Gentiles;1484 which3739 is2076 Christ5547 in1722 you,5213 the3588 hope1680 of glory:1391

28  Whom3739 we2249 preach,2605 warning3560 every3956 man,444 and2532 teaching1321 every3956 man444 in1722 all3956 wisdom;4678 that2443 we may present3936 every3956 man444 perfect5046 in1722 Christ5547 Jesus:2424

29  Whereunto1519 3739 I also2532 labor,2872 striving75 according2596 to his846 working,1753 which worketh1754 in1722 me1698 mightily.1722 1411

Colossians 2: 1-23

1  For1063 I would2309 that ye5209 knew1492 what great2245 conflict73 I have2192 for4012 you,5216 and2532 for them3588 at1722 Laodicea,2993 and2532 for as many as3745 have not3756 seen3708 my3450 face4383 in1722 the flesh;4561

2  That2443 their846 hearts2588 might be comforted,3870 being knit together4822 in1722 love,26 and2532 unto1519 all3956 riches4149 of the3588 full assurance4136 of understanding,4907 to1519 the acknowledgement1922 of the3588 mystery3466 of God,2316 and2532 of the Father,3962 and2532 of Christ;5547

3  In1722 whom3739 are1526 hid614 all3956 the3588 treasures2344 of wisdom4678 and2532 knowledge.1108

4  And1161 this5124 I say,3004 lest3363 any man5100 should beguile3884 you5209 with1722 enticing words.4086

5  For1063 though1487 2532 I be absent548 in the3588 flesh,4561 yet235 am1510 I with4862 you5213 in the3588 spirit,4151 joying5463 and2532 beholding991 your5216 order,5010 and2532 the3588 steadfastness4733 of your5216 faith4102 in1519 Christ.5547

6  As5613 ye have therefore3767 received3880 Christ5547 Jesus2424 the3588 Lord,2962 so walk4043 ye in1722 him:846

7  Rooted4492 and2532 built up2026 in1722 him,846 and2532 established950 in1722 the3588 faith,4102 as2531 ye have been taught,1321 abounding4052 therein1722 846 with1722 thanksgiving.2169

8  Beware991 lest3361 any man5100 spoil4812 you5209 through1223 philosophy5385 and2532 vain2756 deceit,539 after2596 the3588 tradition3862 of men,444 after2596 the3588 rudiments4747 of the3588 world,2889 and2532 not3756 after2596 Christ.5547

9  For3754 in1722 him846 dwelleth2730 all3956 the3588 fullness4138 of the3588 Godhead2320 bodily.4985

10  And2532 ye are2075 complete4137 in1722 him,846 which3739 is2076 the3588 head2776 of all3956 principality746 and2532 power:1849

11  In1722 whom3739 also2532 ye are circumcised4059 with the circumcision4061 made without hands,886 in1722 putting off555 the3588 body4983 of the3588 sins266 of the3588 flesh4561 by1722 the3588 circumcision4061 of Christ:5547

12  Buried with4916 him846 in1722 baptism,908 wherein1722 3739 also2532 ye are risen with4891 him through1223 the3588 faith4102 of the3588 operation1753 of God,2316 who hath raised1453 him846 from1537 the3588 dead.3498

13  And2532 you,5209 being5607 dead3498 in1722 your sins3900 and2532 the3588 uncircumcision203 of your5216 flesh,4561 hath he quickened together4806 with4862 him,846 having forgiven5483 you5213 all3956 trespasses;3900

14  Blotting out1813 the3588 handwriting5498 of ordinances1378 that was against2596 us,2257 which3739 was2258 contrary5227 to us,2254 and2532 took142 it846 out of1537 the3588 way,3319 nailing4338 it846 to his cross;4716

15  And having spoiled554 principalities746 and2532 powers,1849 he made a show1165 of them openly,1722 3954 triumphing over2358 them846 in1722 it.848

16  Let no3361 man5100 therefore3767 judge2919 you5209 in1722 meat,1035 or2228 in1722 drink,4213 or2228 in1722 respect3313 of a holy day,1859 or2228 of the new moon,3561 or2228 of the sabbath4521 days:

17  Which3739 are2076 a shadow4639 of things to come;3195 but1161 the3588 body4983 is of Christ.5547

18  Let no man3367 beguile you of your reward2603 5209 in a voluntary humility2309 1722 5012 and2532 worshiping2356 of angels,32 intruding into1687 those things which3739 he hath not3361 seen,3708 vainly1500 puffed up5448 by5259 his848 fleshly4561 mind,3563

19  And2532 not3756 holding2902 the3588 Head,2776 from1537 which3739 all3956 the3588 body4983 by1223 joints860 and2532 bands4886 having nourishment ministered,2023 and2532 knit together,4822 increaseth837 with the3588 increase838 of God.2316

20  Wherefore3767 if1487 ye be dead599 with4862 Christ5547 from575 the3588 rudiments4747 of the3588 world,2889 why,5101 as though5613 living2198 in1722 the world,2889 are ye subject to ordinances,1379

21  (Touch680 not;3361 taste1089 not;3366 handle2345 not;3366

22  Which3739 all3956 are2076 to perish1519 5356 with the3588 using;)671 after2596 the3588 commandments1778 and2532 doctrines1319 of men?444

23  Which things3748 have2076 2192 indeed3303 a show3056 of wisdom4678 in1722 will-worship,1479 and2532 humility,5012 and2532 neglecting857 of the body;4983 not3756 in1722 any5100 honor5092 to4314 the satisfying4140 of the3588 flesh.4561

Colossians 3: 1-25

1  If1487 ye then3767 be risen with4891 Christ,5547 seek2212 those things which are above,507 where3757 Christ5547 sitteth2076 2521 on1722 the right hand1188 of God.2316

2  Set your affection on5426 things above,507 not3361 on things3588 on1909 the3588 earth.1093

3  For1063 ye are dead,599 and2532 your5216 life2222 is hid2928 with4862 Christ5547 in1722 God.2316

4  When3752 Christ,5547 who is our2257 life,2222 shall appear,5319 then5119 shall ye5210 also2532 appear5319 with4862 him846 in1722 glory.1391

5  Mortify3499 therefore3767 your5216 members3196 which3588 are upon1909 the3588 earth;1093 fornication,4202 uncleanness,167 inordinate affection,3806 evil2556 concupiscence,1939 and2532 covetousness,4124 which3748 is2076 idolatry:1495

6  For which things' sake1223 3739 the3588 wrath3709 of God2316 cometh2064 on1909 the3588 children5207 of disobedience:543

7  In1722 the which3739 ye5210 also2532 walked4043 some time,4218 when3753 ye lived2198 in1722 them.846

8  But1161 now3570 ye5210 also2532 put off659 all these;3956 anger,3709 wrath,2372 malice,2549 blasphemy,988 filthy communication148 out of1537 your5216 mouth.4750

9  Lie5574 not3361 one to another,240 1519 seeing that ye have put off554 the3588 old3820 man444 with4862 his846 deeds;4234

10  And2532 have put on1746 the3588 new3501 man, which is renewed341 in1519 knowledge1922 after2596 the image1504 of him that created2936 him:846

11  Where3699 there is1762 neither3756 Greek1672 nor2532 Jew,2453 circumcision4061 nor2532 uncircumcision,203 Barbarian,915 Scythian,4658 bond1401 nor free:1658 but235 Christ5547 is all,3956 and2532 in1722 all.3956

12  Put on1746 therefore,3767 as5613 the elect1588 of God,2316 holy40 and2532 beloved,25 bowels4698 of mercies,3628 kindness,5544 humbleness of mind,5012 meekness,4236 longsuffering;3115

13  Forbearing430 one another,240 and2532 forgiving5483 one another,1438 if1437 any man5100 have2192 a quarrel3437 against4314 any:5100 even2532 as2531 Christ5547 forgave5483 you,5213 so3779 also2532 do ye.5210

14  And1161 above1909 all3956 these things5125 put on charity,26 which3748 is2076 the bond4886 of perfectness.5047

15  And2532 let the3588 peace1515 of God2316 rule1018 in1722 your5216 hearts,2588 to1519 the which3739 also2532 ye are called2564 in1722 one1520 body;4983 and2532 be1096 ye thankful.2170

16  Let the3588 word3056 of Christ5547 dwell1774 in1722 you5213 richly4146 in1722 all3956 wisdom;4678 teaching1321 and2532 admonishing3560 one another1438 in psalms5568 and2532 hymns5215 and2532 spiritual4152 songs,5603 singing103 with1722 grace5485 in1722 your5216 hearts2588 to the3588 Lord.2962

17  And2532 whatsoever3748 302 ye do4160 in1722 word3056 or2228 deed,2041 do all3956 in1722 the name3686 of the Lord2962 Jesus,2424 giving thanks2168 to God2316 and2532 the Father3962 by1223 him.846

18  Wives,1135 submit yourselves5293 unto your own2398 husbands,435 as5613 it is fit433 in1722 the Lord.2962

19  Husbands,435 love25 your wives,1135 and2532 be not bitter4087 3361 against4314 them.846

20  Children,5043 obey5219 your parents1118 in2596 all things:3956 for1063 this5124 is2076 well pleasing2101 unto the3588 Lord.2962

21  Fathers,2962 provoke2042 not3361 your5216 children5043 to anger, lest3363 they be discouraged.120

22  Servants,1401 obey5219 in2596 all things3956 your masters2962 according2596 to the flesh;4561 not3361 with1722 eyeservice,3787 as5613 menpleasers;441 but235 in1722 singleness572 of heart,2588 fearing5399 God:2316

23  And2532 whatsoever3748 1437 ye do,4160 do2038 it heartily,1537 5590 as5613 to the3588 Lord,2962 and2532 not3756 unto men;444

24  Knowing1492 that3754 of575 the Lord2962 ye shall receive618 the3588 reward469 of the inheritance;2817 for1063 ye serve1398 the3588 Lord2962 Christ.5547

25  But1161 he that doeth wrong91 shall receive2865 for the wrong which he hath done;91 3739 and2532 there is2076 no3756 respect of persons.4382

Colossians 4: 1-18

1  Masters,2962 give3930 unto your servants1401 that which is just1342 and2532 equal;2471 knowing1492 that3754 ye5210 also2532 have2192 a Master2962 in1722 heaven.3772

2  Continue4342 in prayer,4335 and watch1127 in1722 the same846 with1722 thanksgiving;2169

3  Withal260 praying4336 also2532 for4012 us,2257 that2443 God2316 would open455 unto us2254 a door2374 of utterance,3056 to speak2980 the3588 mystery3466 of Christ,5547 for1223 which3739 I am also in bonds:1210 2532

4  That2443 I may make it manifest,5319 846 as5613 I3165 ought1163 to speak.2980

5  Walk4043 in1722 wisdom4678 toward4314 them that are without,1854 redeeming1805 the3588 time.2540

6  Let your5216 speech3056 be always3842 with1722 grace,5485 seasoned741 with salt,217 that ye may know1492 how4459 ye5209 ought1163 to answer611 every man.1520 1538

7  All3956 my state2596 1691 shall Tychicus5190 declare1107 unto you,5213 who is a beloved27 brother,80 and2532 a faithful4103 minister1249 and2532 fellow servant4889 in1722 the Lord:2962

8  Whom3739 I have sent3992 unto4314 you5209 for1519 the same purpose,846 5124 that2443 he might know1097 your estate,4012 5216 and2532 comfort3870 your5216 hearts;2588

9  With4862 Onesimus,3682 a faithful4103 and2532 beloved27 brother,80 who3739 is2076 one of1537 you.5216 They shall make known1107 unto you5213 all things3956 which are done here.5602

10  Aristarchus708 my3450 fellow prisoner4869 saluteth782 you,5209 and2532 Mark,3138 sister's son431 to Barnabas,921 (touching4012 whom3739 ye received2983 commandments:1785 if1437 he come2064 unto4314 you,5209 receive1209 him;)846
