Si habéis, pues, resucitado con Cristo a , buscad las cosas de arriba, donde está Cristo sentado a la diestra de Dios b .
Εἰ οὖν συνηγέρθητε τῷ Χριστῷ,
b If then you have been raised with Christ,
τὰ ἄνω ζητεῖτε,
seek c the things that are above,
οὗ ὁ Χριστός ἐστιν
where Christ is,
ἐν δεξιᾷ τοῦ θεοῦ καθήμενος•
d seated at the right hand of God.
Poned la mira 1 en las cosas de arriba, no en las de la tierra a .
τὰ ἄνω φρονεῖτε,
e Set your minds on things that are above,
μὴ τὰ ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς.
not on things that are on earth.
Porque habéis muerto, y vuestra vida está escondida con Cristo a en Dios.
For f you have died,
καὶ ἡ ζωὴ ὑμῶν κέκρυπται σὺν τῷ Χριστῷ ἐν τῷ θεῷ•
and your life is hidden with Christ in God.
1 Corinthians 2:16
16 y “For who has understood the mind of the Lord so as to instruct him?” But z we have the mind of Christ .
18 Let no one m disqualify you, n insisting on asceticism and worship of angels , o going on in detail about visions , 1 p puffed up without reason by q his sensuous mind ,
2 l in which you once walked, following the course of this world, following m the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that is now at work in n the sons of disobedience— 3 among whom we all once lived in o the passions of our flesh, carrying out the desires of the body 1 and the mind , and p were by nature q children of wrath, like the rest of mankind. 2
