Book 51 Colossians 001:001 Paul, an Apostle of Christ Jesus by the
will of God-- and Timothy our brother: 001:002 To the people of God
and the believing brethren at Colossae who are in Christ. May grace
and peace be granted to you from God our Father. 001:003 We give
thanks to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, constantly praying
for you as we do, 001:004 because we have heard of your faith in
Christ Jesus and of the love which you cherish towards all God's people,
001:005 on account of the hope treasured up for you in Heaven. Of this
hope you have already heard in the Message of the truth of the Good
News. 001:006 For it has reached you, and remains with you, just as it
has also spread through the whole world, yielding fruit there and
increasing, as it has done among you from the day when first you heard
it and came really to know the grace of God, 001:007 as you learned it
from Epaphras our dearly-loved fellow servant. He is to you a faithful
minister of Christ in our stead, 001:008 and moreover he has informed
us of your love, which is inspired by the Spirit. 001:009 For this reason
we also, from the day we first received these tidings, have never ceased
to pray for you and to entreat that you may be filled with a clear
knowledge of His will accompanied by thorough wisdom and
discernment in spiritual things; 001:010 so that your lives may be
worthy of the Lord and perfectly pleasing to Him, while you exhibit the
results of right action of every sort and grow into a fuller knowledge of
God. 001:011 Since His power is so glorious, may you be strengthened
with strength of every kind, and be prepared for cheerfully enduring all
things with patience and long-suffering; 001:012 and give thanks to the
Father who has made us fit to receive our share of the inheritance of
God's people in Light. 001:013 It is God who has delivered us out of

the dominion of darkness, and has transferred us into the Kingdom of
His dearly-loved Son, 001:014 in whom we have our redemption--the
forgiveness of our sins. 001:015 Christ is the visible representation of
the invisible God, the Firstborn and Lord of all creation. 001:016 For in
Him was created the universe of things in heaven and on earth, things
seen and things unseen, thrones, dominions, princedoms, powers--all
were created, and exist through and for Him. 001:017 And HE IS
before all things and in and through Him the universe is a harmonious
whole. 001:018 Moreover He is the Head of His Body, the Church. He
is the Beginning, the Firstborn from among the dead, in order that He
Himself may in all things occupy the foremost place. 001:019 For it
was the Father's gracious will that the whole of the divine perfections
should dwell in Him. 001:020 And God purposed through Him to
reconcile the universe to Himself, making peace through His blood,
which was shed upon the Cross-- to reconcile to Himself through Him,
I say, things on earth and things in Heaven. 001:021 And you,
estranged as you once were and even hostile in your minds, amidst
your evil deeds, 001:022 He has now, in His human body, reconciled to
God by His death, to bring you, holy and faultless and irreproachable,
into His presence; 001:023 if, indeed, you are
