For this cause we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to desire that ye might be filled with the knowledge of his will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding;
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 .
Whom we preach , warning every man, and teaching every man in all wisdom; that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus:
That their hearts might be comforted , being knit together in love, and unto all riches of the full assurance of understanding, to the acknowledgement of the mystery of God, and of the Father, and of Christ;
Withal praying also for us, that God would open unto us a door of utterance, to speak the mystery of Christ, for which I am also in bonds :
That I may make it manifest , as I ought to speak .
Whom I have sent unto you for the same purpose, that he might know your estate, and comfort your hearts;
Epaphras, who is one of you, a servant of Christ, saluteth you, always labouring fervently for you in prayers, that ye may stand perfect and complete in all the will of God.
And when this epistle is read among you, cause that it be read also in the church of the Laodiceans; and that ye likewise read the epistle from Laodicea.
And say to Archippus, Take heed to the ministry which thou hast received in the Lord, that thou fulfil it.
