2:1 But I will that ye know, what busyness I have for you, and for them that be at Laodicea, and whichever saw not my face in flesh, I would ye knew what fighting I have for your sakes and for them of Laodicia, and for as many as have not seen my person in the flesh, For I would ye knew what great fighting I have for your sakes, and for them of Laodicea, and for as many as have not seen my person in the flesh, 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:
2:2 that the hearts of them be comforted, taught in charity, and into all riches of plenty of understanding, into the knowing of the mystery of God, the Father of Jesus Christ, that their hearts might be comforted and knit together in love, and in all riches of full understanding, for to know the mystery of God the father and of Christ That their hearts might be comforted & they knit together in love, and in all riches of the full assurance of understanding, to know the mystery of God even the Father, and of Christ: 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,
2:3 in whom be all the treasures of wisdom and knowing hid. in whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. In whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. In whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom, and knowledge.
2:4 For this thing I say, that no man deceive you in height of words. This I say lest any man should beguile you with enticing words. And this I say, lest any man should beguile you with enticing words. And this I say, lest any man should beguile you with enticing words.
2:5 For though I be absent in body, but by spirit I am with you, joying and seeing your order and the firmness of your belief that is in Christ. For though I be absent in the flesh, yet am I present with you in the spirit joying and beholding the order that ye keep, and your stedfast faith in Christ. For though I be absent in the flesh, yet am I with you in the spirit rejoicing, and beholding your order, and your stedfast faith in Christ. 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.
2:6 Therefore as ye have taken Jesus Christ our Lord, walk ye in him, As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the lord, even so walk As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in him, As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him:
2:7 rooted and built above in Christ, and confirmed in the belief, as ye have learned, abounding in him in doing of thankings. rooted and built in him, and stedfast in the faith, as ye have learned: and therein be plenteous in giving thanks. Rooted and built in him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving. Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving.
2:8 See ye that no man deceive you by philosophy and vain fallacy, after the tradition of men, after the elements of the world, and not after Christ. Beware lest any man come and spoil you through philosophy and deceitful vanity, through the traditions of men, and ordinations after the world, and not after Christ. Beware lest there be any man that spoil you through philosophy, and vain deceit, through the traditions of men, according to the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.

2:9 For in him dwelleth body-like all the fulness of the Godhead. For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the godhead bodily, For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily. For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.
2:10 And ye be fulfilled in him, that is head of all principat and power. and ye are full in him, which is the head of all rule and power, And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all Principality and Power: And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality, & power.
2:11 In whom also ye be circumcised in circumcision not made with hand, in nakedness of the body of flesh, but in circumcision of Christ; in whom also ye are circumcised with circumcision made without hands, by putting off the sinful body off the flesh, through the circumcision that is in Christ, In whom also ye are circumcised with circumcision made without hands, by putting off the sinful body of the flesh, through the circumcision of Christ, 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:
2:12 together buried with him in baptism, in whom and ye have risen again by faith of the working of God, that raised him from dead. In that ye are buried with him through baptism, in whom ye are also risen again through faith, that is wrought by the operation of god which raised him from death. In that ye are buried with him through baptism, in whom ye are also raised up together through the faith of the operation of God which raised him from the dead. Buried with him in Baptism, wherein also you are risen with him through the faith of the operation of God, who hath raised him from the dead.
2:13 And when ye were dead in your guilts, and in the prepuce of your flesh, he quickened together you with him; forgiving to you all guilts, And hath with him quickened you also which were dead in sin and in the uncircumcision of your flesh, and hath forgiven us our trespasses, And ye which were dead in sins, and in the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, forgiving you all your trespasses. And you being dead in your sins, and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses,
2:14 doing away that writing of decree that was against us, that was contrary to us; and he took away that from the middle, pitching it to the cross; and hath put out the obligation that was against us, made in the law written, and that hath he taken out of the way, and hath fastened it on his cross, And putting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, he even took it out of the way, & fastened it upon the cross, 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:
2:15 and he spoiled principats and powers, and led out trustily, openly overcoming them in himself. and hath spoiled rule and power, and hath made a shew of them openly, and hath triumphed over them in his own person. And hath spoiled the Principalities, and Powers, and hath made a shew of them openly, and hath triumphed over them in the same cross. And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it.
2:16 Therefore no man judge you in meat, or in drink, or in part of feast day, or of new moon, or of sabbaths, Let no man therefore trouble your consciences about meat and drink: or for a piece of an holyday, as the holyday of the new moon or of the sabbath day, Let no man therefore condemn you in meat and drink, or in respect of an holy day, or of the new moon, or of the Sabbath days, Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an Holy day, or of the New moon, or of the Sabbath days:
2:17 which be shadow of things to come; for the body is of Christ. which are nothing but shadows of things to come: but the body is in Christ. Which are but a shadow of things to come: but the body is in Christ. Which are a shadow of things to come, but the body is of Christ.
2:18 No man deceive you, willing to teach in meekness, and the religion of angels, those things which he hath not seen, walking vainly, in-blown with wit of his flesh, Let no man make you shoot at a wrong mark, which after his own imagination walketh in the humbleness and holiness of angels, things which he never saw: causeless puffed up with his fleshly mind, Let no man at his pleasure bear rule over you by humbleness of mind, & worshipping of Angels, advancing himself in those things which he never saw, rashly puffed up with his fleshly mind, 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:
2:19 and not holding the head, of which all the body, by bonds and joinings together under-ministered and made, waxeth into the increasing of God. and holdeth not the head, whereof all the body by joints and couples receiveth nourishment, and is knit together, and increaseth with the increasing that cometh of god. And holdeth not the head, whereof all the body furnished and knit together by joints and bands, increaseth with the increasing of God. 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.
2:20 For if ye be dead with Christ from the elements of the world, what yet as men living to the world deem ye? Wherefore if ye be dead with Christ from doctrine of the world: Why as though ye yet lived in the world, are ye led with traditions of them that say? Wherefore if ye be dead with Christ from the ordinances of the world, why, as though ye lived in the world, are ye burdened with traditions? 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?
2:21 Neither ye shall touch, neither taste, neither treat with hands, Touch not, Taste not, Handle not: As, Touch not, Taste not, Handle not. (Touch not, taste not, handle not:
2:22 which all be into death by that use, after the commandments and teachings of men; which all perish with the using of them, and are after the commandments, and doctrines of men: Which all perish with the using, and are after the commandments and doctrines of men. Which all are to perish with the using) after the commandments and doctrines of men:
2:23 which be soothly having reason of wisdom in superstition, and meekness, and not to spare the body, not in any honour to the fulfilling of the flesh. which things have the similitude of wisdom in chosen holiness, and humbleness, and in that they spare not the body, and do the flesh no worship unto his need. Which things have indeed a shew of wisdom, in voluntary religion and humbleness of mind, and in not sparing the body: neither have they it in any estimation to satisfy the flesh. 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.
