Colossians 1:9–14 ESV
And so, from the day we heard, we have not ceased to pray for you, asking that you may be filled with the knowledge of his will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding, so as to walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to him: bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God; being strengthened with all power, according to his glorious might, for all endurance and patience with joy; giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of the saints in light. He has delivered us from the domain of darkness and transferred us to the kingdom of his beloved Son, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.

Colossians 1:9–14 RST
Посему и мы с того дня, как о сем услышали, не перестаем молиться о вас и просить, чтобы вы исполнялись познанием воли Его, во всякой премудрости и разумении духовном, чтобы поступали достойно Бога, во всем угождая Ему, принося плод во всяком деле благом и возрастая в познании Бога, укрепляясь всякою силою по могуществу славы Его, во всяком терпении и великодушии с радостью, благодаря Бога и Отца, призвавшего нас к участию в наследии святых во свете, избавившего нас от власти тьмы и введшего в Царство возлюбленного Сына Своего, в Котором мы имеем искупление Кровию Его и прощение грехов,

Smith’s Bible Dictionary Colos´sians, the Epistle to The

COLOS´SIANS, THE EPISTLE TO THE, was written by the apostle St. Paul during his first captivity at Rome. Acts 28:16. (A.D. 62) The epistle was addressed to the Christians of the city of Colosse, and was delivered to them by Tychicus, whom the apostle had sent both to them, Col. 4:7, 8, and to the church of Ephesus, Eph. 6:21, to inquire into their state and to administer exhortation and comfort. The main object of the epistle is to warn the Colossians against a spirit of semi-Judaistic and semi-Oriental philosophy which was corrupting the simplicity of their belief, and was noticeably tending to obscure the eternal glory and dignity of Christ. The similarity between this epistle and that to the Ephesians is striking. The latter was probably written at a later date.

The Anchor Yale Bible Dictionary Colossians, Epistle to The

COLOSSIANS, EPISTLE TO THE. Colossians traditionally has been classified as one of the Pauline “imprisonment epistles” since, like Ephesians, Philippians, and Philemon, it appears to have been written while the apostle was in jail (Col 4:3, 10, 18; cf. 1:24). The city of Colossae, in SW Asia Minor, was evidently destroyed by the same earthquake that devastated the neighboring cities of Hierapolis and Laodicea in the 7th year of Nero’s reign (60–61 C.E.; see COLOSSAE (PLACE)). It is mentioned nowhere else in the NT, and Paul seems never to have visited the congregation there (see 2:1).
