Paul's Letter to the Colossians

Kolose 1

1:1 Paul, seorang rasul Yesus Kristus oleh kehendak Allah, dan Timothy, saudara,
1:2 to the saints and faithful brothers in Christ Jesus who are at Colossae.
1:3 Rahmat dan damai sejahtera, Allah Bapa kita dan Tuhan Yesus Kristus. We give thanks to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, praying for you always.
1:4 For we have heard of your faith in Christ Jesus, and of the love that you have toward all the saints,
1:5 because of the hope that has been stored up for you in heaven, which you have heard through the Word of Truth in the Gospel.
1:6 This has reached you, just as it is present in the whole world, where it grows and bears fruit, as it has also done in you, since the day when you first heard and knew the grace of God in truth,
1:7 just as you learned it from Epaphras, our most beloved fellow servant, who is for you a faithful minister of Christ Jesus.
1:8 And he has also manifested to us your love in the Spirit.
1:9 Kemudian, terlalu, from the day when we first heard it, we have not ceased praying for you and requesting that you be filled with the knowledge of his will, with all wisdom and spiritual understanding,
1:10 so that you may walk in a manner worthy of God, being pleasing in all things, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God,
1:11 being strengthened in every virtue, in accord with the power of his glory, with all patience and longsuffering, dengan gembira,
1:12 giving thanks to God the Father, who has made us worthy to have a share in the portion of the saints, in the light.
1:13 For he has rescued us from the power of darkness, and he has transferred us into the kingdom of the Son of his love,
1:14 in whom we have redemption through his blood, the remission of sins.
1:15 Ia adalah gambar Allah yang tidak kelihatan, anak sulung daripada segala makhluk.
1:16 Sebab dalam Dialah telah diciptakan segala sesuatu di syurga dan di bumi, kelihatan dan tidak kelihatan, baik singgasana, atau dominations, atau pemerintah, atau kuasa. Segala sesuatu diciptakan oleh Dia dan di dalam Dia.
1:17 Dan dia sebelum semua, dan pada-Nya segala sesuatu terus.
1:18 Dan dia adalah ketua badannya, gereja. Dia adalah permulaan, anak sulung dari antara orang mati, supaya dalam semua perkara yang dia boleh memegang keutamaan.
1:19 Sebab Bapa merasa senang bahawa semua kenyang tinggal di dalam Dia,
1:20 dan itu, melalui dia, segala sesuatu berdamai dengan dirinya, membuat perdamaian melalui darah salib Kristus, untuk perkara-perkara yang ada di bumi, serta perkara-perkara yang di syurga.
1:21 Dan awak, though you had been, pada masa yang lalu, understood to be foreigners and enemies, with works of evil,
1:22 yet now he has reconciled you, by his body of flesh, through death, so as to offer you, holy and immaculate and blameless, before him.
1:23 Sebab itu, continue in the faith: well-founded and steadfast and immovable, by the hope of the Gospel that you have heard, which has been preached throughout all creation under heaven, the Gospel of which I, Paul, have become a minister.
1:24 Buat masa ini saya bergembira dengan semangat saya bagi pihak anda, dan saya siap pada dagingku perkara-perkara yang kurang dalam Passion Kristus, demi badannya, iaitu Jemaat.
1:25 Sebab Aku telah menjadi seorang menteri Gereja, mengikut pengagihan Allah yang telah diberikan kepada saya di antara kamu, supaya aku dapat memenuhi Firman Allah,
1:26 misteri yang kekal tersembunyi untuk peringkat umur yang lalu dan generasi, tetapi yang sekarang dinyatakan kepada umat-Nya.
1:27 Kepada mereka, Tuhan menghendaki untuk dibuat menyatakan kekayaan kemuliaan rahasia itu di antara bangsa-bangsa lain, iaitu Kristus dan harapan bagi kemuliaan-Nya dalam diri anda.
1:28 Kami mengumumkan dia, membetulkan setiap lelaki dan mengajar setiap orang, dengan segala hikmat, supaya kita boleh menawarkan setiap manusia sempurna dalam Kristus Yesus,.
1:29 Sebab di dalam Dia, terlalu, Saya buruh, berusaha mengikut tindakannya dalam saya, yang dia bekerja dalam kebaikan.

Kolose 2

2:1 Bagi saya mahu anda tahu jenis solicitude yang saya ada untuk anda, dan bagi mereka yang di Laodikia, dan juga orang-orang yang tidak pernah melihat wajah saya dalam daging.
2:2 Semoga hati mereka dihiburkan, dan mengarahkan bersedekah, dengan semua kekayaan yang plenitude persefahaman, dengan pengetahuan tentang rahasia Allah Bapa dan Kristus Yesus,.
2:3 Sebab dalam Dialah tersembunyi segala harta hikmat dan pengetahuan.
2:4 Now I say this, so that no one may deceive you with grandiose words.
2:5 For though I may be absent in body, yet I am with you in spirit. And I rejoice as I gaze upon your order and its foundation, which is in Christ, your faith.
2:6 Oleh itu, just as you have received the Lord Jesus Christ, walk in him.
2:7 Be rooted and continually built up in Christ. And be confirmed in the faith, just as you have also learned it, increasing in him with acts of thanksgiving.
2:8 See to it that no one deceives you through philosophy and empty falsehoods, as found in the traditions of men, in accord with the influences of the world, and not in accord with Christ.
2:9 Sebab dalam Dialah, all the fullness of the Divine Nature dwells bodily.
2:10 And in him, you have been filled; for he is the head of all principality and power.
2:11 Sebab di dalam Dia juga, you have been circumcised with a circumcision not made by hand, not by the despoiling of the body of flesh, but by the circumcision of Christ.
2:12 Anda telah dikebumikan dengan dia dalam pembaptisan. Sebab di dalam Dia juga, anda telah meningkat lagi melalui iman, dengan pekerjaan Allah, yang telah membangkitkan Dia dari antara orang mati.
2:13 Dan apabila dahulu mati oleh pelanggaranmu dan oleh karena tidak disunat secara lahiriah, dia dimeriahkan anda, bersama-sama dengan dia, mengampuni kamu segala pelanggaran,
2:14 dan mengesat tulisan tangan dekri yang menentang kami, yang bertentangan dengan kami. Dan dia telah mengambil ini jauh dari tengah-tengahmu, menampalkannya kepada Palang.
2:15 Dan juga, despoiling principalities and powers, he has led them away confidently and openly, triumphing over them in himself.
2:16 Oleh itu, let no one judge you as concerns food or drink, or a particular feast day, or feast days of new moons, or of Sabbaths.
2:17 For these are a shadow of the future, but the body is of Christ.
2:18 Let no one seduce you, preferring base things and a religion of Angels, walking according to what he has not seen, being vainly inflated by the sensations of his flesh,
2:19 and not holding up the head, with which the whole body, by its underlying joints and ligaments, is joined together and grows with an increase that is of God.
2:20 Sebab itu, if you have died with Christ to the influences of this world, why do you still make decisions as if you were living in the world?
2:21 Do not touch, do not taste, do not handle these things,
2:22 which all lead to destruction by their very use, in accord with the precepts and doctrines of men.
2:23 Such ideas have at least an intention to attain to wisdom, but through superstition and debasement, not sparing the body, and they are without any honor in satiating the flesh.

Kolose 3

3:1 Oleh itu, jika anda telah meningkat bersama-sama dengan Kristus, mendapatkan perkara-perkara yang di atas, di mana Kristus duduk di sebelah kanan Allah.
3:2 Pertimbangkan perkara-perkara yang di atas, tidak perkara-perkara yang di bumi.
3:3 Sebab kamu telah mati, dan sebagainya hidupmu tersembunyi bersama dengan Kristus di dalam Allah.
3:4 Apabila Kristus, hidup anda, nampaknya, maka anda juga akan muncul dengan Dia dalam kemuliaan.
3:5 Oleh itu, mematikan badan anda, semasa ia ada di bumi. Kerana dengan zina, berhadas, nafsu, yang jahat, dan ketamakan, yang merupakan jenis perkhidmatan kepada berhala,
3:6 murka Allah telah terharu anak-anak tidak percaya.
3:7 Anda, terlalu, berjalan pada yang demikian, pada masa yang lalu, apabila anda tinggal di antara mereka.
3:8 Tetapi sekarang anda perlu menyediakan semua perkara ini: kemarahan, kemarahan, niat jahat, kekufuran, dan ucapan tidak senonoh dari mulut anda.
3:9 Jangan berbohong kepada yang lain:. Kamu jalur lelaki tua, dengan perbuatan-Nya,
3:10 dan pakaian diri manusia baru, yang telah diperbaharui oleh pengetahuan, bersesuaian dengan imej yang menciptakan dia,
3:11 di mana terdapat tidak bangsa lain mahupun Yahudi, berkhatan dan tidak bersunat, Barbarian nor Scythian, hamba tidak percuma. Sebaliknya, Kristus adalah segala-galanya, dalam semua orang.
3:12 Oleh itu, dirimu seperti umat pilihan Tuhan: suci dan tercinta, dengan hati rahmat, kebaikan, rendah hati, kesopanan, dan kesabaran.
3:13 Menyokong satu sama lain, dan, jika ada yang mempunyai aduan terhadap yang lain, saling mengampuni. Sebab sama seperti Tuhan telah mengampuni kamu, begitu juga anda perlu melakukan.
3:14 Dan di atas semuanya itu mempunyai kasih, yang merupakan ikatan kesempurnaan.
3:15 Dan membiarkan damai Kristus mengangkat hati anda. Dalam damai ini, anda telah dipanggil, sebagai satu badan. Dan bersyukurlah.
3:16 Biarlah perkataan Kristus tinggal di dalam kamu dengan banyaknya, dengan segala hikmat, mengajar dan membetulkan satu sama lain, dengan mazmur, pujian, dan canticles rohani, menyanyi kepada Allah dengan rahmat dalam hatimu.
3:17 Membiarkan segala-galanya apa yang anda lakukan, sama ada dengan perkataan atau dengan perbuatan, dilakukan semuanya itu dalam nama Tuhan Yesus Kristus, mengucap syukur kepada Allah, Bapa kita.
3:18 isteri, tunduk kepada suami, seperti yang layak di dalam Tuhan.
3:19 suami, kasihilah isterimu, dan jangan pahit ke arah mereka.
3:20 Kanak-kanak, mentaati ibu bapa dalam semua perkara. Sebab inilah yang berkenan kepada Tuhan.
3:21 bapa-bapa, jangan hati anak-anakmu kemarahan, supaya mereka tidak berputus asa.
3:22 penjawat, obey, dalam semua perkara, your lords according to the flesh, not serving only when seen, seolah-olah untuk sila lelaki, but serving in simplicity of heart, fearing God.
3:23 Whatever you do, do it from the heart, as for the Lord, and not for men.
3:24 For you know that you will receive from the Lord the repayment of an inheritance. Serve Christ the Lord.
3:25 For whoever causes injury shall be repaid for what he has wrongfully done. And there no favoritism with God.
