051:002:001
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;


051:002:002
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;


051:002:003
In whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.


051:002:004
And this I say,
lest any man should beguile you with enticing words.


051:002:005
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.


051:002:006
As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord,
so walk ye in him:


051:002:007
Rooted and built up in him,
and stablished in the faith,
as ye have been taught,
abounding therein with thanksgiving.


051:002:008
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.


051:002:009
For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.


051:002:010
And ye are complete in him,
which is the head of all principality and power:


051:002:011
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:


051:002:012
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.


051:002:013
And you,
being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh,
hath he quickened together with him,
having forgiven you all trespasses;


051:002:014
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;


051:002:015
And having spoiled principalities and powers,
he made a shew of them openly,
triumphing over them in it.


051:002:016
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:


051:002:017
Which are a shadow of things to come;
but the body is of Christ.


051:002:018
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,


051:002:019
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.


051:002:020
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,


051:002:021
(Touch not;
taste not;
handle not;


051:002:022
Which all are to perish with the using;)
after the commandments and doctrines of men?


051:002:023
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.
