For (A)though I am absent in body, yet I am with you in spirit, rejoicing to see your (B)good order and (C)the firmness of your faith in Christ.

Alive in Christ

(D)Therefore, as you received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in him, (E)rooted and (F)built up in him and (G)established in the faith, just (H)as you were taught, abounding (I)in thanksgiving.

See to it that no one takes you captive by (J)philosophy and (K)empty deceit, according to (L)human tradition, according to the (M)elemental spirits[a] of the world, and not according to Christ. For (N)in him the whole fullness of deity dwells (O)bodily, 10 and (P)you have been filled in him, who is (Q)the head of all rule and authority.
