1 G1063 For G2309 I desire G2192 to have G5209 you G1492 know G2245 how greatly G2192 I G73 struggle G4012 for G5216 you, G2532 and G3588 for those G1722 at G2993 Laodicea, G2532 and G3745 for as many as G3708 have G3756 not G3708 seen G3450 my G4383 face G1722 in G4561 the flesh;
2 G2443 that G846 their G2588 hearts G3870 may be comforted, G4822 they being knit together G1722 in G26 love, G2532 and G1519 gaining G3956 all G4149 riches G4136 of the full assurance G4907 of understanding, G1519 that G1922 they may know G3466 the mystery G2316 of God, G2532 both G3962 of the Father G2532 and G5547 of Christ,
3 G1722 in G3739 whom G1526 are G3956 all G2344 the treasures G4678 of wisdom G2532 and G1108 knowledge G614 hidden.
4 G1161 Now G5124 this G3004 I say G3361 that G5100 no one G3884 may delude G5209 you G1722 with G4086 persuasiveness of speech.
5 G1063 For G1487 though G548 I am absent G4561 in the flesh, G235 yet G1510 am I G4862 with G5213 you G4151 in the spirit, G5463 rejoicing G2532 and G991 seeing G5216 your G5010 order, G2532 and G4733 the steadfastness G5216 of your G4102 faith G1519 in G5547 Christ.
6 G5613 As G3767 therefore G4043 you G3880 G3880 received G5547 Christ G2424 Jesus, G2962 the Lord, G1722 walk in G846 him,
7 G4492 rooted G2532 and G2026 built up G1722 in G846 him, G2532 and G950 established G1722 in G4102 the faith, G2531 even as G1321 you were taught, G4052 abounding G1722 in G846 it G1722 in G2169 thanksgiving.
8 G991 Be careful G3361 that G5100 you don't let anyone G4812 rob G5209 you G1223 through G5385 his philosophy G2532 and G2756 vain G539 deceit, G2596 after G3862 the tradition G444 of men, G2596 after G4747 the elements G2889 of the world, G2532 and G3756 not G2596 after G5547 Christ.
9 G3754 For G1722 in G846 him G3956 all G4138 the fullness G2320 of the Godhead G2730 dwells G4985 bodily,
10 G2532 and G1722 in G846 him G2075 you are G4137 made full, G3739 who G2076 is G2776 the head G3956 of all G746 principality G2532 and G1849 power;
11 G1722 in G3739 whom G2532 you were also G4059 circumcised G4061 with a circumcision G886 not made with hands, G1722 in G555 the putting off G4983 of the body G266 of the sins G4561 of the flesh, G1722 in G4061 the circumcision G5547 of Christ;
12 G4916 having been buried with G846 him G1722 in G908 baptism, G1722 in G3739 which G2532 you were also G4891 raised with G1223 him through G4102 faith G1753 in the working G2316 of God, G1453 who raised G846 him G1537 from G3498 the dead.
13 G2532 G5209 You G5607 were G3498 dead G1722 through G3588 your G3900 trespasses G2532 and G203 the uncircumcision G5216 of your G4561 flesh. G4806 He made you alive together G4862 with G846 him, G5483 having forgiven G5213 us G3956 all G3900 our trespasses,
14 G1813 wiping out G5498 the handwriting G1378 in ordinances G3739 which G2258 was G2596 against G2257 us; G2532 and G142 he has taken G846 it G1537 out of G3319 the way, G4338 nailing G846 it G4716 to the cross;
15 G554 having stripped G746 the principalities G2532 and G1849 the powers, G1165 he made a show G3954 of them openly, G2358 triumphing over G846 them G1722 in G846 it.
16 G2919 Let G3361 no G5100 one G3767 therefore G2919 judge G5209 you G1722 in G1035 eating, G2228 or G1722 in G4213 drinking, G2228 or G1722 with G3313 respect G1859 to a feast day G2228 or G3561 a new moon G2228 or G4521 a Sabbath day,
17 G3739 which G2076 are G4639 a shadow G3195 of the things to come; G1161 but G4983 the body G5547 is Christ's.
18 G3367 Let no one G2603 rob G5209 you G2603 of your prize G1722 by G2309 a voluntary G5012 humility G2532 and G2356 worshipping G32 of the angels, G1687 dwelling G3739 in the things which G3708 he has G3361 not G3708 seen, G1500 vainly G5448 puffed up G5259 by G846 his G4561 fleshly G3563 mind,
19 G2532 and G3756 not G2902 holding G2776 firmly to the Head, G1537 from G3739 whom G3956 all G4983 the body, G2023 being supplied G2532 and G4822 knit together G1223 through G860 the joints G2532 and G4886 ligaments, G837 grows with G2316 God's G838 growth.
20 G3767 G1487 If G599 you died G4862 with G5547 Christ G575 from G4747 the elements G2889 of the world, G5101 why, G5613 as though G2198 living G1722 in G2889 the world, G1379 do you subject yourselves to ordinances,
22 G3956 (all G3739 of which G2076 G1519 G5356 perish G671 with use), G2596 according G1778 to the precepts G2532 and G1319 doctrines G444 of men?
