7 confirmeth the doctrine of Epaphras, 9 prayeth
further for their increase in grace, 14 describeth the
true Christ, 21 encourageth them to receive Jesus

PAUL, " an apostle of Jesus Christ, by
the will of God, and Timotheus our
brother,

2 To the saints '•and faithful brethren in
Christ which are at Colosse : " Grace he unto
you, and peace, from God our Father and the
Lord Jesus Christ.

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

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

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

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 :

7 As ye also learned of 'Epaphras our
dear fellow-servant, who is for you " a faith-
ful minister of Christ;

8 Who also declared unto us your "love
in the Spirit.

9 " For this cause we also, since the day
we heard it, do not cease to pray for you,
and to desire p that ye might be filled with
1 the knowledge of his will ' in all wisdom
and spiritual understanding ;

10 " That ye might walk worthy of the
Lord * unto all pleasing, " being fruitful in
every good work, and increasing in the know-
ledge of God ;

11 ^ Strengthened with all might, accord-
ing to his glorious power, yunto all patience
and long-SUffering ^ with joyfulness ;

12 ''Giving thanks unto the Father, which
hath made us meet to be partakers of '' the
inheritance of the saints in light :

13 Who hath delivered us from nhe
power of darkness, ^ and hath translated us
into the kingdom of f his dear Son :

14 ^In whom we have redemption through
his blood, even the forgiveness of sins :

15 Who is ''the image of the invisible
God, s the first-born of every creature :

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 :

17 ' And he is before all things, and by
him all things consist,

18 And "he is the head of the body, the
church : who is the beginning, "the first-born
from the dead ; that || in all things he might
have the pre-eminence.

19 For it pleased the Father that °in him
should all fulness dwell ;

20 And, II p having made peace through the
blood of his cross, iby him to reconcile 'all
things unto himself; by him, I say, whether
they be things in earth, or things in hea-
ven.

21 And you, = that were sometime alien-
ated and enemies |[ in your mind ' by wicked
works, yet now hath he reconciled,

22 "In the body of his flesh through death,
^ to present you holy, and unblamable, and
unreprovable, in his sight :

23 If ye continue in the faith y grounded
and settled, and be ^not moved away from the
hope of the gospel, which ye have heard, "and
which waspreached '■to every creature which
is under heaven; •= whereof I Paul am made
a minister ;

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 shis body's
sake, which is the church :

25 Whereof I am made a minister, ac-
cording to ''the dispensation of God which is
given to me for you, || to fulfil the word of
God;

26 Even 'the mystery which hath been
hid from ages, and from generations, ''but now
is made manifest to his saints :

27 ' To whom God would make known
what is ""the riches of the glory of this mys-
tery among the Gentiles ; which is Christ || in
you, "the hope of glory:

28 Whom we preach, "warning every man,
and teaching every man in all wisdom; Pthat
we may present every man perfect in Christ
Jesus :

29 iWhereunto I also labour, "'striving
according to his working, which worketh in

me mightily.

987



Paul exhorteth to constancy in Christ, COLOSSIA.NS. toheavenh/-mmdedness; and to mortification.

18 ''Let no man || beguile you of your
reward fin a voluntary humility and worship-
ping of angels, intruding into those things
'which he hath not seen, vainly puffed up by
his fleshly mind,

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.

20 Wherefore, if ye be "dead with Christ
from "the || rudiments of the world, Pwhy as
though living in the world, are ye subject to
ordinances,

21 (I Touch iiot ; taste not ; handle not ;

22 Which all are to perish with the
using ;) ' after the commandments and doc-
trines of men ?

23 = Which things have indeed a shew of
wisdom in * will-worship, and humility, and
II neglecting of the body; not in any honour
to the satisfying of the flesh.



CHAP. n.

1 He still exhorteth them to be constant in Christ, 8 id
beware of philosophy, and vain traditions, IS worship-
ping of angels, 20 and legal ceremonies, which are
ended in Christ.

FOR I would that ye knew what great
II * conflict I have for you, and for them
at Laodicea, and for as many as have not
seen my face in the flesh ;

2 '• That their hearts might be comforted,
"being knit together in love, and unto all
riches of the full assurance of understanding,
* to the acknowledgment of the mystery of
God, and of the Father, and of Christ ;

3 II «In whom are hid all the treasures of
wisdom and knowledge



4 And this I



say,



Hest



any



man should



beguile you with enticing words.

5 For s though I be absent in the flesh, yet
am I with you in the spirit, joying and be-
holding ''your order, and the ' steadfastness of
your faith in Christ.

6 '' As ye have therefore received Christ
Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him :

7 ' Rooted and built up in him,* and sta-
blished in the faith, as ye have been taught,
abounding therein with thanksgiving.

8 ""Beware lest any man spoil you through
philosophy and vain deceit, after " the tradi-
tion of men^ after the || ° rudiments of the
world, and not after Christ.

9 For P in him dwelleth all the fulness of
the Godhead bodily.

10 "i And ye are complete in him, ■■ which
is the head of all ^ principality and power :

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 :

12 ^Buried with him in baptism, wherein
also yye are risen with him through ^the faith
of the operation of God, ''who hath raised him
from the dead.

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 ;

14 <= Blotting out the hand-writing of or-
dinances that was against us, which was
contrary to us, and took it out of the way,
nailing it to his cross ;

15 And ^having spoiled ^principalities
and powers, he made a shew of them openly,
triumphing over them || in it.

16 Let no man therefore '^judge you ||gin
meat, or in drink, or || in respect ''of anholy-
day, or of the new-moon, or of the sabbath-
days :

17 'Which are a shadow of things to come;
but the body is of Christ.

1 He sheweth where we should seek Christ. 5 He ex-
horteth to mortification, 10 to put off the old man, and
to put on Christ, 12 exhorting to charity, humility,
and other several duties.

IF ye then "be risen with Christ, seek those
things which are above, where '' Christ
sitteth on the right hand of God.

2 Set your || affection on things above, not
on things on the earth.

3 " For ye are dead, ^ and your life is hid
with Christ in God.

4 "When Christ, who is ^our life, shall
appear, then shall ye also appear with him
sin glory.

5 ''Mortify therefore 'your members which
are upon the earth ; ■= fornication, unclean-
ness, inordinate affection, 'evil concupis-
cence, and covetousness, "'which is idolatry:

6 " For which things' sake the wrath of
God cometh on ° the children of disobe-
dience :

7 Pin the which ye also walked some time,
when ye lived in them.

8 1 But now ye also put off all these ;
anger, Avrath, malice, blasphemy, 'filthy com-
munication out of your mouth. .

9 ^ Lie not one to another, ' seeing that ye
have put off the old man with his deeds ;

10 And have put on the new man, which
" is renewed in knowledge ^ after the image
of him that y created him :

11 Where there is neither ^ Greek nor
Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision. Bar-
barian, Scythian, bond nor free : » but Christ
is all, and in all.

12 i- Put on therefore, -=as the elect of God,
holy and beloved, "^ bowels of mercies, kind-

ness, humbleness of mind, meekness, long-
suffering ;

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.

14 *'And above all these things sput on
charity, vi^hich is the '■bond of perfectness.

15 And let 'the peace of God rule in your
hearts, ''to the vphich also ye are called ' in
one body; ""and be ye thankful.

16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you
richly in all wisdom ; teaching and admonish-
ing one another " in psalms, and hymns, and
spiritual songs, singing "with grace in your
hearts to the Lord.

17 And P whatsoever ye do in word or
deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesiis,
1 giving thanks to God and the Father by
him.

18 'Wives, submit yourselves unto your
own husbands, ^as it is fit in the Lord.

19 'Husbands, love your wives, and be not
"bitter against them.

20 ^^ Children, obey your parents yin all
things : for this is well-pleasing unto the
Lord.

21 ^Fathers, provoke not your children to
anger, lest they be discouraged.

22 * Servants, obey '"in all things your
masters "= according to the flesh ; not with
eye-service, as men-pleasers ; but in single-
ness of heart, fearing God :

23 ^And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily,
as to the Lord, and not unto men ;

24 « Knowing that of the Lord ye shall
receive the reward of the inheritance: ^for
ye serve the Lord Christ.

25 But he that doeth wrong, shall receive
for the wrong which he hath done : and
8 there is no respect of persons.

1 He exhorteth them to he fervent in -prayer, 5 to walk
wisely toward them that are not yet come to the true
knowledge of Christ. 10 He saluteth them, and wisheth
them all prosperity.

MASTERS, »give unto your servants
that which is just and equal; knowing
that ye also have a Master in heaven.

THE FIRST EPISTLE OF PAUL, THE APOSTLE, TO THE;

THESSALONIANS.



CHAP. I.

1 The Thessalonians are given to understand both how
mindful of them St. Paul was at all times in thanks-
giving, and prayer : 5 and also how well he was per-
suaded of the truth and sincerity of their faith, and
conversion to God.

PAUL, and ''Silvanus, and Timotheus,
unto the church of the Thessalonians
which is in God the Father, and in the Lord
Jesus Christ : '• Grace be unto you, and peace,
from God our Father and the Lord Jesus
Christ.

2 "= We give thanks to God always for you
all, making mention of you in our prayers ;

3 ^Remembering without ceasing «your
work of faith, ''and labour of love, and
patience of hope in our Lord Jesus Christ,
in the sight of God and our Father;

4 Knowing, brethren || beloved, eyour elec-
tion of God.

5 For '' our gospel came not unto you in
word only, but also in power, and 'in the
Holy Ghost, ''and in much assurance; as 'ye
know what manner of men we were among
you for your sake.

, 6 And ■" ye became followers of us, and of
the Lord, having received the word in much
affliction, "with joy of the Holy Ghost :

7 So that ye were ensamples to all that
believe in Macedonia and Achaia.

8 For from you ° sounded out the word of
the Lord not only in Macedonia and Achaia,
but also p in every place your faith to God-
ward is spread abroad ; so that we ileed not
to speak any thing.

9 For they themselves shew of us iwhat
manner of entering in we had unto you, 'and
how ye turned t9 God from idols, to serve the
living and true God;

10 And no wait for his Son *from heaven,
"whom he raised from the dead, even Jesus,
which delivered us '^from the wrath to come.

CHAP. n.

1 In what manner the gospel luas brought and preached
to the Thessalonians, and in what sort also they re-
ceived it. 18 A reason is rendered both why Saint Paul
was so long absent from them, and also why he was so
desirous to see them.

FOR ^yourselves, brethren, know our
entrance in unto you, that it was not
in vain :

2 But even after that we had suffered be-
fore, and were shamefully entreated, as ye
