Col 1:1 Sha’ul, an emissary of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤔𐤏 Messiah by the desire of Alahiym, and Timothy our brother,
Col 1:2 to the set-apart ones in Kolossais, and true brothers in Messiah: Favor to you and peace from Alahiym our Father and the Master 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤔𐤏 Messiah.
Col 1:3 We give thanks to the Alahiym and Father of our Master 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤔𐤏 Messiah, praying always for you,
Col 1:4 having heard of your belief in Messiah 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤔𐤏 and of your love for all the set-apart ones,
Col 1:5 because of the expectation that is laid up for you in the shamiym, of which you heard before in the word of the truth of the Good News,
Col 1:6 which has come to you, as also in all the world it is bearing fruit and growing, as also among you, since the day you heard and knew the favor of Alahiym in truth,
Col 1:7 as you also learned from Epaphra, our beloved fellow servant, who is a true servant of Messiah on your behalf,
Col 1:8 who also declared to us your love in the Spirit.
Col 1:9 That is also why we, from the day we heard, have not ceased praying for you, and asking that you be filled with the knowledge of His desire in all wisdom and spiritual understanding,
Col 1:10 to walk worthily of the Master, pleasing all, bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of Alahiym,
Col 1:11 being empowered with all power, according to the might of His esteem, for all endurance and patience with joy,
Col 1:12 giving thanks to the Father who has made us fit to share in the inheritance of the set-apart ones in the light,
Col 1:13 who has delivered us from the authority of darkness and transferred us into the reign of the Son of His love,
Col 1:14 in whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins,
Col 1:15 who is the likeness of the invisible Alahiym, the first-born of all creation.
Col 1:16 Because in Him were created all that are in the shamiym and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or rulerships or principalities or authorities – all have been created through Him and for Him.
Col 1:17 And He is before all, and in Him all hold together.
Col 1:18 And He is the Head of the body, the assembly, who is the beginning, the first-born from the dead, that He might become the One who is first in all.
Col 1:19 Because in Him all the completeness was well pleased to dwell,
Col 1:20 and through Him to completely restore to favor all unto Himself, whether on earth or in the shamiym, having made peace through the blood of His stake.
Col 1:21 And you, who once were estranged and enemies in the mind by wicked works, but now He has completely restored to favor
Col 1:22 in the body of His flesh through death, to present you set-apart, and blameless, and unreprovable before Him,
Col 1:23 if indeed you continue in the belief, founded and steadfast, and are not moved away from the expectation of the Good News which you heard, which was proclaimed to every creature under the shamiym, of which I, Sha’ul, became a servant,
Col 1:24 who now rejoice in my sufferings for you, and fill up in my flesh what is lacking in Messiah’s afflictions, for the sake of His Body, which is the assembly,
Col 1:25 of which I became a servant according to the administration of Alahiym which was given to me for you, to fill the word of Alahiym,
Col 1:26 the secret which has been hidden from ages and from generations, but now has been revealed to His set-apart ones,
Col 1:27 to whom Alahiym desired to make known what are the riches of the esteem of this secret among the gentiles: which is Messiah in you, the expectancy of esteem,
Col 1:28 whom we announce, warning every man and teaching every man in all wisdom, in order to present every man perfect in Messiah 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤔𐤏,
Col 1:29 for which I also labor, striving according to the working of Him who works in me in power.
Col 2:1 For I wish you to know what a great struggle I have for you and those in Laodikeia, and for as many as have not seen my face in the flesh,
Col 2:2 in order that their hearts might be encouraged, being knit together in love, and to all riches of the entire confirmation of understanding, to a true knowledge of the secret of Alahiym, and of the Father, and of the Messiah,
Col 2:3 in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.
Col 2:4 And this I say, so that no one deceives you with enticing words.
Col 2:5 For though I am absent in the flesh, yet I am with you in spirit, rejoicing to see your good order and the steadfastness of your belief in Messiah.
Col 2:6 Therefore, as you accepted Messiah 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤔𐤏 the Master, walk in Him,
Col 2:7 having been rooted and built up in Him, and established in the belief, as you were taught, overflowing in it with thanksgiving.
Col 2:8 See to it that no one makes a prey of you through philosophy and empty deceit, according to the tradition of men, according to the elementary matters of the world, and not according to Messiah.
Col 2:9 Because in Him dwells all the completeness of the Mightiness bodily,
Col 2:10 and you have been made complete in Him, who is the Head of all principality and authority.
Col 2:11 In Him you were also circumcised with a circumcision not made with hands, in the putting off of the body of the sins of the flesh, by the circumcision of Messiah,
Col 2:12 having been buried with Him in immersion, in which you also were raised with Him through the belief in the working of Alahiym, who raised Him from the dead.
Col 2:13 And you, being dead in your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, He has made alive together with Him, having forgiven you all trespasses,
Col 2:14 having blotted out the certificate of debt against us – by the dogmas – which stood against us. And He has taken it out of the way, having nailed it to the stake.
Col 2:15 Having stripped the principalities and the authorities, He made a public display of them, having prevailed over them in it.
Col 2:16 Let no one therefore judge you in eating or in drinking, or in respect of a festival or a new moon or Shabaths –
Col 2:17 which are a shadow of what is to come – but the Body of the Messiah.
Col 2:18 Let no one deprive you of the prize, one who takes delight in false humility and worship of messengers, taking his stand on what he has not seen, puffed up by his fleshly mind,
Col 2:19 and not holding fast to the Head, from whom all the Body – nourished and knit together by joints and ligaments – grows with the growth of Alahiym.
Col 2:20 If, then, you died with Messiah from the elementary matters of the world, why, as though living in the world, do you subject yourselves to regulations:
Col 2:21 “Do not touch, do not taste, do not handle” –
Col 2:22 which are all to perish with use – according to the commands and teachings of men?
Col 2:23 These indeed have an appearance of wisdom in self-imposed worship, humiliation and harsh treatment of the body – of no value at all, only for satisfaction of the flesh.
Col 3:1 If, then, you were raised with Messiah, seek the matters which are above, where Messiah is, seated at the right hand of Alahiym.
Col 3:2 Mind the matters above, not those on the earth.
Col 3:3 For you have died, and your life has been hidden with Messiah in Alahiym.
Col 3:4 When the Messiah, who is our life, is manifested, then you also shall be manifested with Him in esteem.
Col 3:5 Therefore put to death your members which are on the earth: whoring, uncleanness, passion, evil desire and greed of gain, which is idolatry.
Col 3:6 Because of these the wrath of Alahiym is coming upon the sons of disobedience,
Col 3:7 in which you also once walked when you lived in them.
Col 3:8 But now, also put off all these: displeasure, wrath, evil, blasphemy, filthy talk from your mouth.
Col 3:9 Do not lie to each other, since you have put off the old man with his practices,
Col 3:10 and have put on the new one who is renewed in knowledge according to the likeness of Him who created him,
Col 3:11 where there is not Greek and Yahudiy, circumcised and uncircumcised, foreigner, Scythian, slave, free, but Messiah is all, and in all.
Col 3:12 Therefore, as chosen ones of Alahiym, set-apart and beloved, put on compassion, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, patience,
Col 3:13 bearing with one another, and forgiving each other if anyone has a complaint against another, indeed, as Messiah forgave you so also should you.
Col 3:14 But above all these put on love, which is a bond of the perfection.
Col 3:15 And let the peace of Alahiym rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one Body, and be filled with thanks.
Col 3:16 Let the Word of Messiah dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing with pleasure in your hearts to the Master in psalms and songs of praise and spiritual songs.
Col 3:17 And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the Name of the Master 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤔𐤏, giving thanks to Alahiym the Father through Him.
Col 3:18 Wives, subject yourselves to your own husbands, as is proper in the Master.
Col 3:19 Husbands, love your wives and do not be bitter toward them.
Col 3:20 Children, obey your parents in all, for this is well-pleasing to the Master.
Col 3:21 Fathers, do not provoke your children, lest they become discouraged.
Col 3:22 Servants, obey your masters according to the flesh in all respects, not with eye-service, as men-pleasers, but in sincerity of heart, fearing Alahiym.
Col 3:23 And whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Master and not to men,
Col 3:24 knowing that from the Master you shall receive the reward of the inheritance. It is the Master, Messiah, you serve.
Col 3:25 But he who does wrong shall be repaid for the wrong which he has done, and there is no partiality.
Col 4:1 Masters, give your servants what is righteous and fair, knowing that you also have a Master in the shamiym.
Col 4:2 Continue in prayer, watching therein, with thanksgiving,
Col 4:3 praying at the same time also for us, that Alahiym would open to us a door for the word, to speak the secret of Messiah, for which I am also in chains,
Col 4:4 so that I make it clear, as I should speak.
Col 4:5 Walk in wisdom toward those who are outside, redeeming the time.
Col 4:6 Let your word always be with favor, seasoned with salt, so that you know how you ought to answer each one.
Col 4:7 Tuchikos, who is a beloved brother, a true servant, and a fellow servant in the Master, shall give you all the news about me.
Col 4:8 I am sending him to you for this purpose, to know your circumstances and to encourage your hearts,
Col 4:9 with Onesimo, a true and beloved brother, who is one of you. They shall let you know all the news here.
Col 4:10 Aristarchos my fellow prisoner greets you, with Mark the relative of Barnaba about whom you received instructions: if he comes to you, welcome him,
Col 4:11 also Yahusha who is called Justus. These are my only fellow workers for the reign of Alahiym who are of the circumcision, who were to me a comfort.
Col 4:12 Epaphras, who is one of you, a servant of Messiah, greets you, always wrestling for you in prayers, so that you stand perfect and complete in all the desire of Alahiym.
Col 4:13 For I bear him witness that he has a deep concern for you, and for those who are in Laodikeia and those in Hiera polis.
Col 4:14 Luke the beloved physician and Demas greet you.
Col 4:15 Greet the brothers in Laodikeia, and Nymphan and the assembly that is in his house.
Col 4:16 And when this letter is read among you, see that it is read also in the assembly of the Laodikeon, and that you likewise read the letter from Laodikeias.
Col 4:17 And say to Archippo, “See to the service which you have received in the Master, so that you complete it.”
Col 4:18 This greeting is in my own hand – Sha’ul. Remember my chains. Favor be with you. Aman.
