The Gospel to the Colossians of the Christian Holy Bible

Colossians 1:1 Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God,  and Timotheus our brother.

Colossians 1:2 To the saints and faithful brethren in Christ which are at Colosse: Grace be  unto you, and peace, from God our Father and the Lord  Jesus Christ. 

Colossians 1:3 We give thanks to God and the Father of  our Lord Jesus Christ, praying always for you, 

Colossians 1:4 Since  we heard of your faith in Christ Jesus, and of the love  which ye have to all the saints, 

Colossians 1:5 For the hope which  is laid up for you in heaven, whereof ye heard before in the  word of the truth of the gospel; 

Colossians 1:6 Which is come unto  you, as it is in all the world; and bringeth forth fruit, as it  doth also in you, since the day ye heard of it, and knew  the grace of God in truth: 

Colossians 1:7 As ye also learned of Epaphras our dear fellow servant, who is for you a faithful  minister of Christ; 

Colossians 1:8 Who also declared unto us your  love in the Spirit. 

Colossians 1:9 For this cause we also, since the  day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to desire  that ye might be filled with the knowledge of his will in all  wisdom and spiritual understanding; 
Colossians 1:10 That ye might  walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in  every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God;  
Colossians 1:11 Strengthened with all might, according to his  glorious power, unto all patience and longsuffering with  joyfulness; 
Colossians 1:12 Giving thanks unto the Father, which  hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the  saints in light: 
Colossians 1:13 Who hath delivered us from the  power of darkness, and hath translated us into the  kingdom of his dear Son: 
Colossians 1:14 In whom we have  redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of  sins: 
Colossians 1:15 Who is the image of the invisible God, the  firstborn of every creature: 
Colossians 1:16 For by him were all  things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth,  visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or  dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were  created by him, and for him: 
Colossians 1:17 And he is before all  things, and by him all things consist. 
Colossians 1:18 And he is the  head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the  firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have  the preeminence. 
Colossians 1:19 For it pleased the Father that in  him should all fulness dwell; 
Colossians 1:20 And, having made  peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all  things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be  things in earth, or things in heaven. 
Colossians 1:21 And you, that  were sometime alienated and enemies in your mind by  wicked works, yet now hath he reconciled 

The Colossians
Colossians 1:22 In the  body of his flesh through death, to present you holy and  unblameable and unreproveable in his sight: 
Colossians 1:23 If ye  continue in the faith grounded and settled, and be not  moved away from the hope of the gospel, which ye have  heard, and which was preached to every creature which is  under heaven; whereof I Paul am made a minister; 
Colossians 1:24  Who now rejoice in my sufferings for you, and fill up that  which is behind of the afflictions of Christ in my flesh for  his body’s sake, which is the church: 
Colossians 1:25 Whereof I am  made a minister, according to the dispensation of God  which is given to me for you, to fulfil the word of God;  
Colossians 1:26 Even the mystery which hath been hid from ages  and from generations, but now is made manifest to his  saints: 
Colossians 1:27 To whom God would make known what is  the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles;  which is Christ in you, the hope of glory: 
Colossians 1:28 Whom we  preach, warning every man, and teaching every man in all  wisdom; that we may present every man perfect in Christ  Jesus: 
Colossians 1:29 Whereunto I also labour, striving according to  his working, which worketh in me mightily.  

Chapter 2
Colossians 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; 
Colossians 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; 
Colossians 2:3 In whom are hid all the treasures of  wisdom and knowledge. 
Colossians 2:4 And this I say, lest any man  should beguile you with enticing words. 
Colossians 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.  
Colossians 2:6 As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord,  so walk ye in him: 
Colossians 2:7 Rooted and built up in him, and  stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding  therein with thanksgiving. 
Colossians 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. 
Colossians 2:9 For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the  Godhead bodily. 
Colossians 2:10 And ye are complete in him, which  is the head of all principality and power: 
Colossians 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: 
Colossians 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.  
Colossians 2:13 And you, being dead in your sins and the  uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together  with him, having forgiven you all trespasses; 
Colossians 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; 
Colossians 2:15 And having spoiled  principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly,  triumphing over them in it. 
Colossians 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: 
Colossians 2:17 Which  are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ.  
Colossians 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, 
Colossians 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.  
Colossians 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, 
Colossians 2:21 (Touch not; taste not;  handle not; 
Colossians 2:22 Which all are to perish with the using;)  after the commandments and doctrines of men? 
Colossians 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.  

Chapter 3
Colossians 3:1 If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things  which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of  God. 
Colossians 3:2 Set your affection on things above, not on things  on the earth. 
Colossians 3:3 For ye are dead, and your life is hid with  Christ in God. 
Colossians 3:4 When Christ, who is our life, shall  appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory.  
Colossians 3:5 Mortify therefore your members which are upon the  earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil  concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry: 
Colossians 3:6  For which things’ sake the wrath of God cometh on the  children of disobedience: 
Colossians 3:7 In the which ye also walked  some time, when ye lived in them. 
Colossians 3:8 But now ye also  put off all these; anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy    
Colossians Page 680   communication out of your mouth. 
Colossians 3:9 Lie not one to  another, seeing that ye have put off the old man with his  deeds; 
Colossians 3:10 And have put on the new man, which is  renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created  him: 
Colossians 3:11 Where there is neither Greek nor Jew,  circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond  nor free: but Christ is all, and in all. 
Colossians 3:12 Put on  therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of  mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness,  longsuffering; 
Colossians 3:13 Forbearing one another, and forgiving  one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as  Christ forgave you, so also do ye. 
Colossians 3:14 And above all  these things put on charity, which is the bond of  perfectness. 
Colossians 3:15 And let the peace of God rule in your  hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be  ye thankful. 
Colossians 3:16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you  richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another  in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace  in your hearts to the Lord. 
Colossians 3:17 And whatsoever ye do in  word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving  thanks to God and the Father by him.   
Colossians 3:18 Wives, submit yourselves unto your own  husbands, as it is fit in the Lord. 
Colossians 3:19 Husbands, love  your wives, and be not bitter against them. 
Colossians 3:20  Children, obey your parents in all things: for this is well  pleasing unto the Lord. 
Colossians 3:21 Fathers, provoke not your  children to anger, lest they be discouraged. 
Colossians 3:22  Servants, obey in all things your masters according to the  flesh; not with eyeservice, as men pleasers; but in singleness  of heart, fearing God: 
Colossians 3:23 And whatsoever ye do, do it  heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men; 
Colossians 3:24 Knowing  that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the  inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ. 
Colossians 3:25 But he that  doeth wrong shall receive for the wrong which he hath  done: and there is no respect of persons.
