1 G3972 Paul, G652 an apostle G5547 of Christ G2424 Jesus G1223 through G2307 the will G2316 of God, G2532 and G5095 Timothy G80 our brother,
2 G40 To the saints G2532 and G4103 faithful G80 brethren G1722 in G5547 Christ G1722 that are at G2857 Colossae: G5485 Grace G5213 to you G2532 and G1515 peace G575 from G2316 God G2257 our G3962 Father.
3 G2168 We give thanks G2316 to God G2532 G3962 the Father G2257 of our G2962 Lord G2424 Jesus G5547 Christ, G4336 praying G3842 always G4012 for G5216 you,
4 G191 having heard G5216 of your G4102 faith G1722 in G5547 Christ G2424 Jesus, G2532 and G26 of the love G1519 which ye have toward G3956 all G40 the saints,
5 G1223 because G1680 of the hope G606 which is laid up G5213 for you G1722 in G3772 the heavens, G3739 whereof G4257 ye heard before G1722 in G3056 the word G225 of the truth G2098 of the gospel,
6 G3918 which is come G1519 unto G5209 you; G2531 even as G1722 it is also in G3956 all G2889 the world G2592 bearing fruit G2532 and G2531 increasing, as G1722 it doth in G5213 you G2532 also, G575 since G2250 the day G191 ye heard G2532 and G1921 knew G5485 the grace G2316 of God G1722 in G225 truth;
7 G2532 even G2531 as G3129 ye G3129 learned G575 of G1889 Epaphras G2257 our G27 beloved G4889 fellow-servant, G3739 who G2076 is G4103 a faithful G1249 minister G5547 of Christ G5216 on our G5228 behalf,
9 G1223 For G5124 this G1223 cause G2249 we G2532 also, G575 since G2250 the day G191 we heard G3973 it, do G3756 not G3973 cease G4336 to pray G2532 and G154 make request G5228 for G5216 you, G2443 that G4137 ye may be filled with G1922 the knowledge G846 of his G2307 will G1722 in G3956 all G4152 spiritual G4678 wisdom G2532 and G4907 understanding,
10 G4043 G5209 G4043 to walk G516 worthily G2962 of the Lord G1519 unto G3956 all G699 pleasing, G2592 bearing fruit G1722 in G3956 every G18 good G2041 work, G2532 and G837 increasing G1519 in G1922 the knowledge G2316 of God;
11 G1412 strengthened G1722 with G3956 all G2904 power, G2596 according to G1411 the might G846 of his G1391 glory, G1519 unto G3956 all G5281 patience G2532 and G3115 longsuffering G3326 with G5479 joy;
12 G2168 giving thanks G3962 unto the Father, G2427 who made G2248 us G2427 meet G1519 to G3310 be partakers G2819 of the inheritance G40 of the saints G1722 in G5457 light;
13 G3739 who G4506 delivered G2248 us G1537 out G1849 of the power G4655 of darkness, G2532 and G3179 translated G1519 us into G932 the kingdom G5207 of the Son G846 of his G26 love;
15 G3739 who G2076 is G1504 the image G517 of the invisible G2316 God, G4416 the firstborn G3956 of all G2937 creation;
16 G3754 for G1722 in G846 him G2936 were G3956 all things G2936 created, G1722 in G3772 the heavens G2532 and G1093 upon the earth, G3707 things visible G2532 and G517 things invisible, G1535 whether G2362 thrones G1535 or G2963 dominions G1535 or G746 principalities G1535 or G1849 powers; G3956 all things G2936 have been created G1223 through G846 him, G2532 and G1519 unto G846 him;
17 G2532 and G846 he G2076 is G4253 before G3956 all things, G2532 and G1722 in G846 him G3956 all things G4921 consist.
18 G2532 And G846 he G2076 is G2776 the head G4983 of the body, G1577 the church: G3739 who G2076 is G746 the beginning, G4416 the firstborn G1537 from G3498 the dead; G2443 that G1722 in G3956 all G846 things he G1096 might G4409 have the preeminence.
19 G3754 For G2106 it was the good pleasure G1722 of the Father that in G846 him G2730 should G3956 all G4138 the fulness G2730 dwell;
20 G2532 and G1223 through G604 him to reconcile G3956 all things G1519 unto G846 himself, G1517 having made peace G1223 through G129 the blood G846 of his G4716 cross; G1223 through G846 him, G1535 I say, whether G3588 things G1909 upon G1093 the earth, G1535 or G3588 things G1909 in G3772 the heavens.
21 G2532 And G5209 you, G1271 being in G4218 time past G526 alienated G2532 and G2190 enemies G1271 in G1271 your mind G4190 in your evil G2041 works,
22 G3570 yet now G604 hath he reconciled G1722 in G4983 the body G846 of his G4561 flesh G1223 through G2288 death, G3936 to present G5209 you G40 holy G2532 and G299 without blemish G2532 and G410 unreproveable G2714 before G846 him:
23 G1489 if G1961 so be that ye continue in G4102 the faith, G2311 grounded G2532 and G1476 stedfast, G2532 and G3361 not G3334 moved away G575 from G1680 the hope G2098 of the gospel G3739 which G191 ye heard, G2784 which was preached G1722 in G3956 all G2937 creation G5259 under G3772 heaven; G3739 whereof G1473 I G3972 Paul G1096 was made G1249 a minister.
24 G3568 Now G3739 I G5463 rejoice G1722 in G3450 my G3804 sufferings G5228 for G5216 your G2532 sake, and G466 fill up G5303 on my part that which is lacking G2347 of the afflictions G5547 of Christ G1722 in G3450 my G4561 flesh G5228 for G846 his G4983 body's G5228 sake, G3739 which G2076 is G1577 the church;
25 G3739 whereof G1473 I G1096 was made G1249 a minister, G2596 according to G3622 the dispensation G2316 of God G1325 which was given G3427 me G1519 to G5209 you-ward, G4137 to fulfil G3056 the word G2316 of God,
26 G3466 even the mystery G613 which hath been hid G575 for G165 ages G2532 and G1074 generations: G1161 but G3570 now G5319 hath it been manifested G40 to G846 his G40 saints,
27 G3739 to whom G2316 God G2309 was pleased G1107 to make known G5101 what G4149 is the riches G1391 of the glory G5127 of this G3466 mystery G1722 among G1484 the Gentiles, G3739 which G2076 is G5547 Christ G1722 in G5213 you, G1680 the hope G1391 of glory:
28 G3739 whom G2249 we G2605 proclaim, G3560 admonishing G3956 every G444 man G2532 and G1321 teaching G3956 every G444 man G1722 in G3956 all G4678 wisdom, G2443 that G3936 we may present G3956 every G444 man G5046 perfect G1722 in G5547 Christ;
