26 Which is the mystery hid since the world began, and from all ages, but now is made manifest to his [a]Saints,

27 To whom God [b]would make known what is the riches of his glorious mystery among the Gentiles, which riches is Christ in you, the hope of glory,

28 [c]Whom we preach, admonishing every man, and teaching every man in [d]all wisdom, that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus.


  1. Colossians 1:26 Whom he chose to sanctify unto himself in Christ: moreover he sayeth that the mystery of our redemption was hidden since the world began, except it were revealed unto a few, who also were taught it extraordinarily.
  2. Colossians 1:27 This Paul bridleth the curiosity of men.
  3. Colossians 1:28 He protesteth that he doth faithfully execute his Apostleship in every place, bringing men unto Christ only, through the Lord’s plentiful blessings of his labors.
  4. Colossians 1:28 Perfect and sound wisdom, which is perfect in itself, and shall in the end make them perfect that follow it.
