“Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving.”
King James Version (KJV)
2:7 Rooted in him - As the vine. Built - On the sure foundation.
Col 2:7 Rooted . . . in him. Your life growing out of Christ as a tree out of the soil. As ye have been taught. The point of the exhortation is to cling to the gospel as it has been taught them.
