Col 2:6 As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him:
Col 2:7 Rooted and built up in him, and stablished [strengthened] in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving.
Col 2:8 Beware lest any man spoil you [take you captive] through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments [basic principles] of the world, and not after [rather than] Christ.
Col 2:9 For in him [Christ] dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.
Col 2:10 And ye are complete in him [Christ], which is the head of [over] all principality [power] and power [authority]:
Col 2:11 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:
Col 2:12 Buried with him [Christ] in baptism, wherein also ye are risen with him through the faith of the operation of God, who hath raised him from the dead.
Col 2:13 And [when] you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh [sinful nature], hath he [God] quickened together [made you alive] with him [Christ], having forgiven you all trespasses [all your sins];
Col 2:14 Blotting out [cancelling] the handwriting [written code] of ordinances [with its regulations] that was against us, [and] which was contrary [opposed] to us, and took it out of the way [away], nailing it to his [Christ's] cross;
Col 2:15 And having spoiled [disarmed the] principalities [powers] and powers [authorities], he made a shew of them openly [public spectacle of them], triumphing over them in it [by the cross].
Col 2:16 Let no man therefore judge you in meat [by what you eat], or in drink, or in respect of an holyday [religious festival], or of the new moon [celebration], or of the sabbath days:
Col 2:17 Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body [the reality, however] is of [found in] Christ.
Col 2:18 Let no man beguile [disqualify] you of your reward [prize] in a voluntary [false] humility and worshipping of angels, intruding into those things which he hath not seen, vainly puffed up [goes into great detail about] by his fleshly mind,
Col 2:19 And not holding [has lost connection with] the Head, from which all the body by joints and bands [ligaments] having nourishment ministered, and knit together, increaseth [grows] with the increase of God [as God causes it to grow].
Col 2:20 Wherefore if ye be dead with Christ from the rudiments [basic principles] of the world, why, as though living in [as though you still belonged to] the world, are ye subject to ordinances [do you submit to its rules],
Col 2:21 (Touch not; taste not; handle not;
Col 2:22 Which all are to perish with the using [with use];) after [because they are based on] the commandments and doctrines of men?
Col 2:23 Which
things have indeed a shew [appearance] of wisdom in
will [with their self-imposed] worship, and [their false]
humility, and neglecting of [their harsh treatment of] the
body: not in [but they lack] any honour [value] to
the satisfying of the flesh [in restraining sensual indulgence].
