11 In him also (A)you were circumcised with a circumcision made without hands, by (B)putting off the body of the flesh, by the circumcision of Christ, 12 (C)having been buried with him in baptism, in which (D)you were also raised with him through faith in (E)the powerful working of God, (F)who raised him from the dead. 13 (G)And you, who were dead in your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, God (H)made alive together with him, having forgiven us all our trespasses, 14 by (I)canceling (J)the record of debt that stood against us with its legal demands. This he set aside, nailing it to the cross. 15 (K)He disarmed the rulers and authorities[a] and (L)put them to open shame, by (M)triumphing over them in him.[b]
