Colossians Chapter 2


Col 2:1

  • For I would
    • that ye knew
    • what great conflict

    • I have for you,
    • and for them at Laodicea,
    • and for as many
      • as have not seen my face
        • in the flesh;

Col 2:2

  • That their hearts might be comforted,
    • being knit together in love,
    • and unto all riches
      • of the full assurance of understanding,
      • to the acknowledgement of the mystery of God,
        • and of the Father, and of Christ;

Col 2:3

      • In whom are hid
        • all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.

Col 2:4

  • And this I say,
    • lest any man should beguile you with enticing words.

Col 2:5

    • For though I be absent in the flesh,
  • yet am I
    • with you in the spirit,
      • joying
      • and beholding your order,
      • and the stedfastness of your faith in Christ.

Col 2:6

    • so walk ye in him:

Col 2:7

    • Rooted
    • and built up in him,
    • and stablished in the faith,
  • as ye have been taught,
    • abounding therein with thanksgiving.

Col 2:8

  • Beware lest any man spoil you
    • through philosophy
    • and vain deceit,
      • after the tradition of men,
      • after the rudiments of the world,
      • and not after Christ.

Col 2:9

  • For in him
    • dwelleth
    • all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.

Col 2:10

  • And ye are complete in him,
    • which is the head of all principality and power:

Col 2:11

    • In whom also ye are circumcised
      • with the circumcision made without hands,

      • in putting off the body
        • of the sins
        • of the flesh
        • by the circumcision of Christ:

Col 2:12

    • Buried with him in baptism,
      • wherein also ye are risen with him
        • through the faith of the operation of God,
        • who hath raised him from the dead.

Col 2:13

  • And you,
    • hath he quickened
      • together with him,
      • having forgiven you all trespasses;

Col 2:14

      • Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances
        • that was against us,
        • which was contrary to us,

        • and took it out of the way,
        • nailing it to his cross;

Col 2:15

      • And having spoiled principalities and powers,
        • he made a shew of them openly,
        • triumphing over them in it.

Col 2:16

      • Let no man therefore judge you
        • in meat,
        • or in drink,
        • or in respect of an holyday,
        • or of the new moon,
        • or of the sabbath days:

Col 2:17

        • Which are a shadow of things to come;
        • but the body is of Christ.

Col 2:18

      • Let no man beguile you
        • of your reward
          • in a voluntary humility
          • and worshipping of angels,
        • intruding into those things
          • which he hath not seen,
          • vainly puffed up by his fleshly mind,

Col 2:19

        • And not holding the Head,
          • from which all the body
            • by joints and bands having nourishment ministered,
            • and knit together, increaseth with the increase of God.

Col 2:20

  • Wherefore
    • if ye be dead with Christ
      • from the rudiments of the world,
  • why,
    • as though living in the world,
    • are ye subject to ordinances,

Col 2:21

    • (Touch not;
    • taste not;
    • handle not;
      Col 2:22
      • Which all are to perish with the using;)
      • after
        • the commandments
        • and doctrines of men?

Col 2:23

  • Which things
    • have indeed a shew of wisdom
      • in will worship,
      • and humility,
      • and neglecting of the body;
    • not in any honour
      • to the satisfying of the flesh.
