See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy,1 which depends on human tradition and the basic principles of this world2 rather than on Christ.
For in Christ all the fullness3 of the Deity lives in bodily form,
and you have been given fullness in Christ, who is the head4 over every power and authority.511
In him you were also circumcised,6 in the putting off of the sinful nature,a7 not with a circumcision done by the hands of men but with the circumcision done by Christ,
having been buried with him in baptism8 and raised with him9 through your faith in the power of God, who raised him from the dead.10
