For I would have you know what combat I have for you, and those in Laodicea, and as many as have not seen my face in flesh;
to the end that their hearts may be encouraged, being united together in love, and unto all riches of the full assurance of understanding, to [the] full knowledge of the mystery of God;
in which are hid all the treasures of wisdom and of knowledge.
And I say this to the end that no one may delude you by persuasive speech.
For if indeed in the flesh I am absent, yet I am with you in spirit, rejoicing and seeing your order, and the firmness of your faith in Christ.
As therefore ye have received the Christ, Jesus the Lord, walk in him,
rooted and built up a in him, and assured b in the faith, even as ye have been taught, abounding in it with thanksgiving.
