Colossians 2:9-15 Wycliffe Bible (WYC)

For in him dwelleth body-like all the fullness of the Godhead.

10 And ye be filled in him [And ye be fulfilled in him], that is head of all principat and power.

11 In whom also ye be circumcised in circumcision not made with hand, in despoiling of the body of flesh [in nakedness of the body of flesh], but in circumcision of Christ;

12 and ye be buried together with him in baptism, in whom also ye have risen again by faith of the working of God, that raised him from death.[a]

13 And when ye were dead in your guilts, and in the prepuce of your flesh, he quickened together you with him; forgiving to you all guilts [all guilts, or trespasses],

14 doing away that writing of decree that was against us, that was contrary to us; and he took away that from the middle, pitching it on the cross [pitching it to the cross];

15 and he spoiled principats and powers, and led out trustily, openly overcoming them in himself.

Colossians 2:9-15 New Matthew Bible (NMB)

For in him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily, 10 and you are complete in him, who is the head of all rule and power. 11 In him also you are circumcised, with the circumcision that is made without hands, by putting off the sinful body of the flesh through the circumcision that is in Christ, 12 in that you are buried with him through baptism; in whom you are also risen again through faith, which is wrought by the operation of God, who raised him from death.

13 And you who were dead in sin through the uncircumcision of your flesh, he has quickened to life with him, and has forgiven us all our trespasses. 14 And he has put out the handwriting that was against us, contained in the written law: he has taken it out of the way and has fastened it to his cross, 15 and has spoiled rule and power, and has made a show of them openly, and has triumphed over them in his own person.

Colossians 2:9-15 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

[a]For [b]in him [c]dwelleth [d]all the fullness of the Godhead [e]bodily.

10 And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power.

11 [f]In whom also ye are circumcised with circumcision made without hands, by putting off the [g]sinful body of the flesh, through the circumcision of Christ,

12 [h]In that ye are [i]buried with [j]him through baptism, [k]in whom ye are also raised up together through the faith of the operation of [l]God, which raised him from the dead.

13 [m]And you which were dead in sins, [n]and in the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, forgiving you all your trespasses,

14 [o]And putting out the [p]handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, he even took it out of the way, and fastened it upon the cross,

15 And hath spoiled the [q]Principalities, and Powers, and hath [r]made a show of them openly, and hath triumphed over them in the [s]same cross.

Footnotes:

  1. Colossians 2:9 A reason: Because only Christ God and man, is most perfect, and passeth far above all things, so that whosoever hath him, may require nothing more.
  2. Colossians 2:9 By these words, is showed a distinction of the natures.
  3. Colossians 2:9 This word (Dwelleth) noteth out unto us the joining together of those natures, so that of God and Man, is one Christ.
  4. Colossians 2:9 These words set down most perfect Godhead to be in Christ.
  5. Colossians 2:9 The knitting together of God and man, is substantial and essential.
  6. Colossians 2:11 Now he dealeth perfecty against the third kind, that is to say, against them which urged the Jewish religion: and first of all, he denieth that we have need of the Circumcision of the flesh, seeing that without it we are circumcised within, by the virtue of Christ.
  7. Colossians 2:11 These many words are used to show what the old man is, whom Paul in other places calleth the body of sin.
  8. Colossians 2:12 The taking away of an objection: we need not so much as the eternal sign which our fathers had, seeing that our baptism is a most effectual pledge and witness, of that inward restoring and renewing.
  9. Colossians 2:12 See Rom. 6:4.
  10. Colossians 2:12 So then all the force of the matter cometh not from the very deed done, that is to say, it is not the dipping of us into the water by a Minister that maketh us to be buried with Christ, as the Papists say, that even for the very act’s sake, we become verily Christians, but it cometh from the virtue of Christ, for the Apostle addeth the resurrection of Christ and faith.
  11. Colossians 2:12 One end of Baptism is the death and burial of the old man, and that by the mighty power of God only, whose virtue we lay hold on by faith, in the death and resurrection of Christ.
  12. Colossians 2:12 Through faith which cometh from God.
  13. Colossians 2:13 Another end of Baptism is, that we which were dead in sin, might obtain free remission of sins and eternal life through faith in Christ who died for us.
  14. Colossians 2:13 A new argument which lieth in these few words, and it is thus: Uncircumcision was no hindrance to you, why you being justified in Christ should not obtain life therefore you need not circumcision to the argument of salvation.
  15. Colossians 2:14 He speaketh now more generally against the whole service of the Law, and showeth by two reasons that it is abolished: First, to what purpose should he that hath obtained remission of all his sins in Christ require those helps of the Law? Secondly, because that if a man do rightly consider those rites, he shall find that they were so many testimonies of our guiltiness, whereby we manifestly witnessed as it were by our own handwriting that we deserved damnation. Therefore did Christ put out that handwriting by his coming and fastening it to the cross, triumphed over all our enemies, were they never so mighty. Therefore to what end and purpose should we now use those ceremonies, as though we were still guilty of sin, and subject to the tyranny of our enemies?
  16. Colossians 2:14 Abolishing the rites and ceremonies.
  17. Colossians 2:15 Satan and his angels.
  18. Colossians 2:15 As a conqueror made by a show of those captives, and put them to shame.
  19. Colossians 2:15 The cross was as a chariot of triumph. No conqueror could have triumphed so gloriously in his chariot, as Christ did upon the cross.

Colossians 2:9-15 Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)

For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily. 10 And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power: 11 in whom also ye are circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, in putting off the body of the sins of the flesh by the circumcision of Christ: 12 buried with him in baptism, wherein also ye are risen with him through the faith of the operation of God, who hath raised him from the dead. 13 And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses; 14 blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross; 15 and having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it.
