1 G2309 For I want G1063 G1473 you G1492 to know G2245 how much G73 struggle G2192 I have G4012 for G1473 you, G2532 and G3588 the ones G1722 in G* Laodicea, G2532 and G3745 as many as G3756 have not G3708 seen G3588 G4383 my face G1473 G1722 in G4561 flesh;
2 G2443 that G3870 [2should be comforted G3588 G2588 1their hearts], G1473 G4822 being instructed G1722 in G26 love, G2532 and G1519 in G3956 all G4149 riches G3588 of the G4136 full assurance G3588 of the G4907 understanding, G1519 in G1922 full knowledge G3588 of the G3466 mystery G3588 of the G2316 God G2532 and G3962 father G2532 and G3588 of the G5547 Christ;
3 G1722 in G3739 which G1510.2.6 are G3956 all G3588 the G2344 treasures G3588 of the G4678 wisdom G2532 and G3588 of the G1108 knowledge G614 concealed.
4 G3778 And this G1161 G3004 I say, G2443 that G3361 not G5100 anyone G1473 should mislead you G3884 G1722 in G4086 plausible arguments.
5 G1487 For if G1063 G2532 even G3588 in the G4561 flesh G548 I am absent, G235 yet G3588 in the G4151 spirit G4862 [2with G1473 3you G1510.2.1 1I am], G5463 rejoicing G2532 and G991 seeing G1473 your G3588 G5010 order, G2532 and G3588 the G4733 firmness, G3588 the one G1519 [2in G5547 3Christ G4102 1of your belief]. G1473
6 G5613 As G3767 then G3880 you took to yourself G3588 the G5547 Christ -- G* Jesus G3588 the G2962 Lord; G1722 [2in G1473 3him G4043 1walk]!
7 G4492 being rooted G2532 and G2026 built up G1722 in G1473 him, G2532 and G950 being firmed up G1722 in G3588 the G4102 belief, G2531 as G1321 you were taught, G4052 abounding G1722 in G1473 it G1722 with G2169 thankfulness.
8 G991 Take heed G3361 lest G5100 [2anyone G1473 4you G1510.8.3 1there shall be G3588 G4812 3robbing] G1223 through G3588 the G5385 fondness of intellectual pursuits G2532 and G2756 empty G539 deception, G2596 according to G3588 the G3862 tradition G3588 G444 of men, G2596 according to G3588 the G4747 elements G3588 of the G2889 world, G2532 and G3756 not G2596 according to G5547 Christ!
9 G3754 For G1722 in G1473 him G2730 dwells G3956 all G3588 the G4138 fullness G3588 of the G2320 deity G4985 bodily.
10 G2532 And G1510.2.5 you are G1722 [2in G1473 3him G4137 1being fulfilled], G3739 who G1510.2.3 is G3588 the G2776 head G3956 of all G746 sovereignty G2532 and G1849 authority;
11 G1722 in G3739 whom G2532 also G4059 you were circumcised G4061 by a circumcision G886 not made by hands, G1722 in G3588 the G555 stripping G3588 of the G4983 body G3588 of the G266 sins G3588 of the G4561 flesh, G1722 in G3588 the G4061 circumcision G3588 of the G5547 Christ;
12 G4916 having been buried together with G1473 him G1722 in G3588 the G908 immersion, G1722 in G3739 which G2532 also G4891 you were risen up together G1223 through G3588 the G4102 belief G3588 of the G1753 energy G3588 G2316 of God -- G3588 the one G1453 having raised G1473 him G1537 from G3588 the G3498 dead.
13 G2532 And G1473 you, G3498 being dead G1510.6 G1722 in G3588 the G3900 transgressions, G2532 and G3588 in the G203 uncircumcision G3588 G4561 of your flesh, G1473 G4806 he made you alive together G1473 G4862 with G1473 him, G5483 granting forgiveness G1473 to us G3956 for all G3588 the G3900 transgressions;
14 G1813 having wiped away G3588 the G2596 [4against G1473 5us G5498 1handwriting G3588 2by the G1378 3decrees], G3739 which G1510.7.3 was G5227 contrary G1473 to us; G2532 and G1473 he has lifted it G142 G1537 from out of G3588 the G3319 midst, G4338 having fastened it with a nail G1473 G3588 to the G4716 cross;
15 G554 having divested G3588 the G746 sovereignties G2532 and G3588 the G1849 authorities, G1165 he made an example G1722 in G3954 an open manner G2358 triumphing over G1473 them G1722 by G1473 it.
16 G3361 [2not G3767 3then G5100 4anyone G1473 6you G2919 1Let 5judge] G1722 in G1035 food G2228 or G1722 in G4213 drink, G2228 or G1722 in G3313 the rank G1859 of a holiday feast, G2228 or G3561 new moon, G2228 or G4521 sabbaths,
17 G3739 which G1510.2.3 are G4639 a shadow G3588 of the G3195 things about to be -- G3588 but the G1161 G4983 body G3588 of the G5547 Christ!
18 G3367 [2no one G1473 4you G2603 1Let 3deprive] of due reward, G2309 wanting G1722 by G5012 deprivation G2532 and G2356 following a religion G3588 G32 of angels, G3739 [2things which G3361 3he has not G3708 4seen G1687 1entering into], G1500 vainly G5448 being inflated G5259 by G3588 the G3563 mind G3588 G4561 of his flesh, G1473
19 G2532 and G3756 not G2902 holding onto G3588 the G2776 head, G1537 from out of G3739 which G3956 all G3588 the G4983 body G1223 through G3588 the G860 ligaments G2532 and G4886 sinews G2023 being supplied G2532 and G4822 being instructed, G837 grow G3588 by the G838 growth G3588 G2316 of God.
20 G1487 If G3767 then G599 you died G4862 with G3588 the G5547 Christ G575 from G3588 the G4747 elements G3588 of the G2889 world, G5100 why G5613 as G2198 living G1722 in G2889 the world G1379 do you subject yourselves to decrees?
21 G3361 that is, You should not G680 lightly touch, G3366 nor G1089 should you taste, G3366 nor G2345 should you touch,
22 G3739 (which things G1510.2.3 are G3956 all G1519 for G5356 corruption G3588 G671 in abuse,) G2596 according to G3588 the G1778 precepts G2532 and G1319 instructions G3588 G444 of men,
