1 Paul an Apostle of Iesus Christ, by þe will of God, and Timotheus our brother,

2 To the saints and faithfull brethren in Christ, which are at Colosse, grace be vnto you, and peace from God our Father, and the Lord Iesus Christ.

3 We giue thanks to God, and the Father of our Lord Iesus Christ, praying alwayes for you,

4 Since we heard of your faith in Christ Iesus, and of the loue which yee haue to all the Saints,

5 For the hope which is layd vp for you in heauen, whereof ye heard before in the word of the trueth of the Gospel,

6 Which is come vnto you as it is in all the world, and bringeth foorth fruit, as it doth also in you, since the day yee heard of it, and knew the grace of God in trueth,

7 As yee also learned of Epaphras our deare felow seruant, who is for you a faithfull Minister of Christ:

8 Who also declared vnto vs your loue in the spirit.

9 For this cause wee also, since the day we heard it, doe not cease to pray for you, and to desire that ye might be filled with the knowledge of his will, in all wisedome and spirituall vnderstanding:

10 That ye might walke worthy of the Lord vnto all pleasing, being fruitfull in euery good worke, & increasing in the knowledge of God:

11 Strengthened with all might according to his glorious power, vnto all patience and long suffering with ioyfulnesse:

12 Giuing thanks vnto the Father, which hath made vs meete to be partakers of the inheritance of the Saints in light:

13 Who hath deliuered vs from the power of darkenesse, and hath translated vs into the kingdome of his deare Sonne,

14 In whom we haue redemption through his blood, euen the forgiuenesse of sinnes:

15 Who is the image of the inuisible God, the first borne of euery creature.

16 For by him were all things created that are in heauen, and that are in earth, visible and inuisible, 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 hee is the head of the body, the Church: who is the beginning, the first borne from the dead, that in all things he might haue the preeminence:

19 For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulnesse dwell,

20 And (hauing made peace through the blood of his crosse) by him to reconcile all things vnto himself, by him, I say, whether they bee things in earth, or things in heauen.

21 And you that were sometimes alienated, and enemies in your minde by wicked workes, yet now hath hee reconciled,

22 In the body of his flesh through death, to present you holy & vnblameable, and vnreprooueable in his sight,

23 If ye continue in the faith grounded and setled, and be not moued away from the hope of the Gospel, which yee haue heard, and which was preached to euery creature which is vnder heauen, whereof I Paul am made a Minister.

24 Who now reioyce in my sufferings for you, and fill vp that which is behind of the afflictions of Christ in my flesh, for his bodies sake, which is the Church,

25 Whereof I am made a Minister, according to the dispensation of God, which is giuen to mee for you, to fulfill the word of God:

26 Euen 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 knowen what is the riches of the glory of this mysterie among the Gentiles, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory:

28 Whom we preach, warning euery man, and teaching euery man in all wisedome, that we may present euery man perfect in Christ Iesus.

29 Whereunto I also labour, striuing according to his working, which worketh in me mightily.

Blessed's Colossians Chapter 1 comment about verse 16 on 4/20/2014, 8:42am...

This scripture is radical. All things were made by GOD for GOD. Everything from the physical to the spiritual. Religions, humans, nature, storms,modern inventions, all create by GOD for GOD. Genesis says he create the universe out of void. He created man from dirt. Man was created to take care of GOD 'S creations. To worship and praise GOD. NOW we have the gospel of CHRIST, WE ARE supposed to spread the good news of the gospel. JESUS says his yoke is easy and his burden is light. We are the creation of GOD created for GOD. GOD is love! We are created for love by love. Not the love of the world but the love of GOD. I say to you LOVE AND BE LOVED.


Keith's Colossians Chapter 1 comment about verse 11 on 4/14/2014, 2:07am...

Christ gives us the power that sustains us to stay in God 's will and please God because being anxious is the opposite of patience,grumbling is a sign of lack of longsuffering spirit and thus there is no joy hence i love Christ for His power that causes us to be joyfull in all suffering and waiting patiently through all things.


Briana's Colossians Chapter 1 comment on 3/18/2014, 8:46am...

Colossians really spoke to me this morning It gave me hope for what I m striving for which is perfection That s the goal for me To continue to grow in his word and become like him which is a perfect saint


Ivan's Colossians Chapter 1 comment about verse 15 on 3/06/2014, 9:53am...

Lets reason together the Bible clearly states that Jesus is the creator of everything i e the universe vegetation beasts and even man e t c and without Him nothing existed So would i be wrong to say that HE S God basing on Genesis 1 27 PLEASE MEDITATE UPON IT


Samson A. Allu's Colossians Chapter 1 comment about verse 15 on 2/25/2014, 2:16pm...

The book of colossians 1 15 have just review exactly what Jesus christ is the word first born means the first spirit translated that JESUS is GOD because christains or non christains religeous or non religeous we all witness that it s God first and he is invisible God then why the first invisible God declare to you that JESUS is me and you no still believe


Gwendolyn's Colossians Chapter 1 comment about verse 15 on 2/22/2014, 12:43pm...

to me it means that he is perfect not good but perfect in every way the word good means superior to something else when compared to other things but the word perfect means unlike unblemished without flaw complete in the Fullness of Jehovah God incorruptible that is why in Col 1 19 it states that it pleased Jehovah to have all His fullness dwell in Him Christ not made by hands or conceived by a human but by almighty God Luke1 35 The Holy Spirit will come upon you and the Shadow of the Highest will overshadow you therefore also that Holy Spirit will be called the Son of God not sure but if Jehovah is incorruptable that which of Him must also be incorruptable pure logic if you asked me


Lucille Martin's Colossians Chapter 1 comment about verse 26 on 1/31/2014, 7:18pm...

The mystery or secret of JESUS CHRIST was in THE FATHERS plan from the beginning of time. JESUS was made known to at his birth. JESUS is the resurrection of the death in the garden.


Anonymous's Colossians Chapter 1 comment about verse 20 on 1/22/2014, 8:55am...

The ransom, a provision of Godís undeserved kindness, can clear our conscience of guilt and give us inner peace
