Unchecked Copy BoxCol 2:1 - For I want you to know how great a struggle I have on your behalf and for those who are at Laodicea, and for all those who have not [fn]personally seen my face,

Unchecked Copy BoxCol 2:2 - that their hearts may be encouraged, having been knit together in love, and attaining to all the wealth [fn]that comes from the full assurance of understanding, resulting in a true knowledge of God’s mystery, that is, Christ Himself,

Unchecked Copy BoxCol 2:3 - in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.

Unchecked Copy BoxCol 2:4 - I say this so that no one will delude you with persuasive argument.

Unchecked Copy BoxCol 2:5 - For even though I am absent in body, nevertheless I am with you in spirit, rejoicing [fn]to see [fn]your good discipline and the stability of your faith in Christ.

Unchecked Copy BoxCol 2:6 - Therefore as you have received Christ Jesus the Lord, so [fn]walk in Him,

Unchecked Copy BoxCol 2:7 - having been firmly rooted and now being built up in Him and established [fn]in your faith, just as you were instructed, and overflowing [fn]with gratitude.

Unchecked Copy BoxCol 2:8 - See to it that no one takes you captive through philosophy and empty deception, according to the tradition of men, according to the elementary principles of the world, [fn]rather than according to Christ.

Unchecked Copy BoxCol 2:9 - For in Him all the fullness of Deity dwells in bodily form,

Unchecked Copy BoxCol 2:10 - and in Him you have been made [fn]complete, and He is the head [fn]over all rule and authority;

Unchecked Copy BoxCol 2:11 - and in Him you were also circumcised with a circumcision made without hands, in the removal of the body of the flesh by the circumcision of Christ;

Unchecked Copy BoxCol 2:12 - having been buried with Him in baptism, in which you were also raised up with Him through faith in the working of God, who raised Him from the dead.

Unchecked Copy BoxCol 2:13 - When you were dead [fn]in your transgressions and the uncircumcision of your flesh, He made you alive together with Him, having forgiven us all our transgressions,

Unchecked Copy BoxCol 2:14 - having canceled out the certificate of debt consisting of decrees against us, which was hostile to us; and He has taken it out of the way, having nailed it to the cross.

Unchecked Copy BoxCol 2:15 - When He had [fn]disarmed the rulers and authorities, He made a public display of them, having triumphed over them through [fn]Him.

Unchecked Copy BoxCol 2:16 - Therefore no one is to [fn]act as your judge in regard to food or drink or in respect to a festival or a new moon or a Sabbath [fn]day—

Unchecked Copy BoxCol 2:17 - things which are a mere shadow of what is to come; but the [fn]substance [fn]belongs to Christ.

Unchecked Copy BoxCol 2:18 - Let no one keep [fn]defrauding you of your prize by delighting in [fn]self-abasement and the worship of the angels, [fn]taking his stand on visions he has seen, [fn]inflated without cause by his fleshly mind,

Unchecked Copy BoxCol 2:19 - and not holding fast to the head, from whom the entire body, being supplied and held together by the joints and [fn]ligaments, grows with a growth [fn]which is from God.

Unchecked Copy BoxCol 2:20 - If you have died with Christ [fn]to the elementary principles of the world, why, as if you were living in the world, do you submit yourself to decrees, such as,

Unchecked Copy BoxCol 2:21 - “Do not handle, do not taste, do not touch!”

Unchecked Copy BoxCol 2:22 - (which all refer to things destined to perish [fn]with use)—in accordance with the commandments and teachings of men?

Unchecked Copy BoxCol 2:23 - These are matters which have, to be sure, the [fn]appearance of wisdom in [fn]self-made religion and self-abasement and severe treatment of the body, but are of no value against fleshly indulgence.
