The Epistle of Paul the Apostle to the Colossians

Return to Index.

Chapter 1

1

Paul, an apostle of Mashiyach Yahshua through the will of Yahweh, and Timothy our brother,

2

To the saints and faithful brethren in Mashiyach that are at Colossae: Grace to you and peace from Yahweh our Father.

3

We give thanks to Elohim the Father of our Master Yahshua Ha Mashiyach, praying always for you,

4

having heard of your faith in Mashiyach Yahshua, and of the love which ye have toward all the saints,

5

because of the hope which is laid up for you in the heavens, whereof ye heard before in the word of the truth of the evangel,

6

which is come unto you; even as it is also in all the world bearing fruit and increasing, as it doth in you also, since the day ye heard and knew the grace of Elohim in truth;

7

even as ye learned of Epaphras our beloved fellow-servant, who is a faithful minister of Mashiyach on our behalf,

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 and make request for you, that ye may be filled with the knowledge of his will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding,

10

to walk worthily of Yahweh unto all pleasing, bearing fruit in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of Elohim;

11

strengthened with all power, according to the might of his glory, unto all patience and longsuffering with joy;

12

giving thanks unto the Father, who made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light;

13

who delivered us out of the power of darkness, and translated us into the kingdom of the Son of his love;

14

in whom we have our redemption, the forgiveness of our sins:

15

who is the image of the invisible Elohim, the firstborn of all creation;

16

for in him were all things created, in the heavens and upon the earth, things visible and things invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers; all things have been created through him, and unto him;

17

and he is before all things, and in him all things consist.

18

And he is the head of the body, the assembly: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence.

19

For it was the good pleasure of the Father that in him should all the fulness dwell;

20

and through him to reconcile all things unto himself, having made peace through the blood of his stake; through him, I say, whether things upon the earth, or things in the heavens.

21

And you, being in time past alienated and enemies in your mind in your evil works,

22

yet now hath he reconciled in the body of his flesh through death, to present you holy and without blemish and unreproveable before him:

23

if so be that ye continue in the faith, grounded and stedfast, and not moved away from the hope of the evangel which ye heard, which was preached in all creation under heaven; whereof I Paul was made a minister.

24

Now I rejoice in my sufferings for your sake, and fill up on my part that which is lacking of the afflictions of Mashiyach in my flesh for his body's sake, which is the assembly;

25

whereof I was made a minister, according to the dispensation of Elohim which was given me to you-ward, to fulfil the word of Elohim,

26

even the mystery which hath been hid for ages and generations: but now hath it been manifested to his saints,

27

to whom Elohim was pleased to make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles, which is Mashiyach in you, the hope of glory:

28

whom we proclaim, admonishing every man and teaching every man in all wisdom, that we may present every man perfect in Mashiyach;

29

whereunto I labor also, striving according to his working, which worketh in me mightily.
