Col 2:8 Take heed lest there shall be any one
that maketh spoil of you through his philosophy and vain deceit, after the
tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ:
Col 2:9 for in him dwelleth all the fulness of
the Godhead bodily,
Col 2:10 and in him ye are made full, who is the
head of all principality and power:
Col 2:11 in whom ye were also circumcised with a
circumcision not made with hands, in the putting off of the body of the
flesh, in the circumcision of Christ;
Col 2:12 having been buried with him in baptism,
wherein ye were also raised with him through faith in the working of God,
who raised him from the dead.
Col 2:13 And you, being dead through your
trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, you, I

Col 2:15 having despoiled the principalities and
the powers, he made a show of them openly, triumphing over them in it.

Col 2:18 Let no man rob you of your prize by a
voluntary humility and worshipping of the angels, dwelling in the things
which he hath seen, vainly puffed up by his fleshly mind,
Col 2:19 and not holding fast the Head, from whom
all the body, being supplied and knit together through the joints and
bands, increasing with the increase of God.
Col 2:20 If ye died with Christ from the
rudiments of the world, why, as though living in the world, do ye subject
yourselves to ordinances,
Col 2:21 Handle not, nor taste, nor touch
Col 2:22 (all which things are to perish with the
using), after the precepts and doctrines of men?
Col 2:23 Which things have indeed a show of
wisdom in will-worship, and humility, and severity to the body; but
are not of any value against the indulgence of
