Unchecked Copy BoxCol 2:18 - Let no one fraudulently deprive you of your prize, doing his own will in humility and worship of angels, entering into things which he has not seen, vainly puffed up by the mind of his flesh,
Unchecked Copy BoxCol 2:19 - and not holding fast the head, from whom all the body, ministered to and united together by the joints and bands, increases with the increase of God.
Unchecked Copy BoxCol 2:20 - If ye have died with Christ from the elements of the world, why as if alive in the world do ye subject yourselves to ordinances?
Unchecked Copy BoxCol 2:21 - Do not handle, do not taste, do not touch,
Unchecked Copy BoxCol 2:22 - (things which are all for destruction in the using of them:) according to the injunctions and teachings of men,
Unchecked Copy BoxCol 2:23 - (which have indeed an appearance of wisdom in voluntary worship, and humility, and harsh treatment of the body, not in a certain honour,) to the satisfaction of the flesh.

In 1867, John Nelson Darby translated the New Testament from Greek into English. Further revisions were done in 1872 and 1884. Darby’s work was first published as The Holy Scriptures: A New Translation from the Original Languages by J. N. Darby. After Darby’s death in 1882, some of his students worked together to produce the complete Darby Bible based on the Masoretic Hebrew text, Darby’s German (Elberfelder), and the French (Pau) translations. In 1890, the first complete Darby Bible was published in English. This translation of the Bible is in the public domain.
