1 For I want you to know how great a struggle I have for you, for those in Laodicea, and for all who have not seen me in person. 1 I want you to know how much I am struggling for you and for those at Laodicea, and for all who have not met me personally.
2 [I want] their hearts to be encouraged and joined together in love, so that they may have all the riches of assured understanding, and have the knowledge of God's mystery-Christ. 2 My purpose is that they may be encouraged in heart and united in love, so that they may have the full riches of complete understanding, in order that they may know the mystery of God, namely, Christ,
3 In Him all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge are hidden. 3 in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.
4 I am saying this so that no one will deceive you with persuasive arguments. 4 I tell you this so that no one may deceive you by fine-sounding arguments.
5 For I may be absent in body, but I am with you in spirit, rejoicing to see your good order and the strength of your faith in Christ. 5 For though I am absent from you in body, I am present with you in spirit and delight to see how orderly you are and how firm your faith in Christ is.
6 Therefore as you have received Christ Jesus the Lord, walk in Him, 6 So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live in him,
7 rooted and built up in Him and established in the faith, just as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness. 7 rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.
