Third Millennium Bible w/ Apocrypha (TMBA) New International Version (NIV)
1 For I would that ye knew how great is my conflict for you and for those at Laodicea, and for as many as have not seen my face in the flesh, 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 that their hearts might be comforted, being knit together in love unto all the riches of the full assurance of understanding, that they may acknowledge the mystery of God, and of the Father, and of 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 whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. 3 in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.
4 And this I say, lest any man should beguile you with enticing words; 4 I tell you this so that no one may deceive you by fine-sounding arguments.
5 for though I am absent in the flesh, yet am I with you in the spirit, rejoicing and beholding your order and the steadfastness 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 As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye 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 as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving. 7 rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.
