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 .
In the body of his flesh through death, to present you holy and unblameable and unreproveable in his sight:
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:
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:
Which are a shadow of things to come ; but the body is of Christ.
And not holding the Head, from which all the body by joints and bands having nourishment ministered , and knit together , increaseth with the increase of God.
Which things have indeed a shew of wisdom in will worship, and humility, and neglecting of the body; not in any honour to the satisfying of the flesh.
And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful.
