So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord,1 continue to live in him,
rooted2 and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught,3 and overflowing with thankfulness.
See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy,4 which depends on human tradition and the basic principles of this world5 rather than on Christ.
For in Christ all the fullness6 of the Deity lives in bodily form,
and you have been given fullness in Christ, who is the head7 over every power and authority.8
