Colossians 1:4
• King James Version of the Bible originally published in 1611
5 For the hope which is laid up for you in heaven, whereof ye heard before in the word of the truth of the gospel;
Colossians 1:5
• King James Version of the Bible originally published in 1611
6 Which is come unto you, as it is in all the world; and bringeth forth fruit, as it doth also in you, since the day ye heard of it, and knew the grace of God in truth:
Colossians 1:6
• King James Version of the Bible originally published in 1611
7 As ye also learned of Epaphras our dear fellowservant, who is for you a faithful minister of Christ;

• King James Version of the Bible originally published in 1611
8 Who also declared unto us your love in the Spirit.

11 Strengthened with all might, according to his glorious power, unto all patience and longsuffering with joyfulness;
Colossians 1:11
• King James Version of the Bible originally published in 1611
12 Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light:
Colossians 1:12
• King James Version of the Bible originally published in 1611
13 Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son:
Colossians 1:13
• King James Version of the Bible originally published in 1611
14 In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins:
Colossians 1:14
• King James Version of the Bible originally published in 1611
15 Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature:
Colossians 1:15
• King James Version of the Bible originally published in 1611
16 For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:
Colossians 1:16
• King James Version of the Bible originally published in 1611
17 And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.
Colossians 1:17
• King James Version of the Bible originally published in 1611
18 And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence.
Colossians 1:18
• King James Version of the Bible originally published in 1611
19 For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell;
Colossians 1:19
• King James Version of the Bible originally published in 1611
20 And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven.
Colossians 1:20
• King James Version of the Bible originally published in 1611
21 And you, that were sometime alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now hath he reconciled
Colossians 1:21
• King James Version of the Bible originally published in 1611
22 In the body of his flesh through death, to present you holy and unblameable and unreproveable in his sight:
Colossians 1:22
• King James Version of the Bible originally published in 1611
23 If ye continue in the faith grounded and settled, and be not moved away from the hope of the gospel, which ye have heard, and which was preached to every creature which is under heaven; whereof I Paul am made a minister;
Colossians 1:23
• King James Version of the Bible originally published in 1611
24 Who now rejoice in my sufferings for you, and fill up that which is behind of the afflictions of Christ in my flesh for his body's sake, which is the church:
Colossians 1:24
• King James Version of the Bible originally published in 1611
25 Whereof I am made a minister, according to the dispensation of God which is given to me for you, to fulfil the word of God;
Colossians 1:25
• King James Version of the Bible originally published in 1611
26 Even the mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to his saints:
Colossians 1:26
• King James Version of the Bible originally published in 1611
27 To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory:
Colossians 1:27
• King James Version of the Bible originally published in 1611
28 Whom we preach, warning every man, and teaching every man in all wisdom; that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus:
Colossians 1:28
• King James Version of the Bible originally published in 1611
29 Whereunto I also labour, striving according to his working, which worketh in me mightily.
Colossians 1:29
