and Timotheus our brother,
Grace be unto you,
from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
praying always for you,
and of the love which ye have to all the saints,
whereof ye heard before in the word of the truth of the gospel;
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:
who is for you a faithful minister of Christ;
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;
being fruitful in every good work,
and increasing in the knowledge of God;
according to his glorious power,
unto all patience and longsuffering with joyfulness;
which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light:
and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son:
even the forgiveness of sins:
the firstborn of every creature:
that are in heaven,
and that are in earth,
visible and invisible,
whether they be thrones,
all things were created by him,
and for him:
and by him all things consist.

by him to reconcile all things unto himself;
whether they be things in earth,
or things in heaven.

yet now hath he reconciled
to present you holy and unblameable and unreproveable in his sight:
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;
and fill up that which is behind of the afflictions of Christ in my flesh for his body’s sake,
which is the church:
according to the dispensation of God which is given to me for you,
to fulfil the word of God;
but now is made manifest to his saints:
which is Christ in you,
the hope of glory:
warning every man,
and teaching every man in all wisdom;
that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus:
striving according to his working,
which worketh in me mightily.
Chapter 2:23 Verses

and for as many as have not seen my face in the flesh;
being knit together in love,
and unto all riches of the full assurance of understanding,

wherein also ye are risen with him through the faith of the operation of God,
who hath raised him from the dead.
being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh,
hath he quickened together with him,
having forgiven you all trespasses;
which was contrary to us,
and took it out of the way,
nailing it to his cross;
he made a shew of them openly,
triumphing over them in it.
or in drink,
or in respect of an holyday,
or of the new moon,
or of the sabbath days:
but the body is of Christ.
intruding into those things which he hath not seen,
vainly puffed up by his fleshly mind,
from which all the body by joints and bands having nourishment ministered,
and knit together,

are ye subject to ordinances,
after the commandments and doctrines of men?
