Colossians 3:17

Whatsoever ye do (pan oti ean poihte).
Indefinite relative (everything whatever) with ean and the present active subjunctive, a common idiom in such clauses.

Do all (panta).
The imperative poieite has to be supplied from poihte in the relative clause. Panta is repeated from pan (singular), but in the plural (all things). Pan is left as a nominative absolute as in Matthew 10:32; Luke 12:10. This is a sort of Golden Rule for Christians "in the name of the Lord Jesus" (en onomati Kuriou Ihsou), in the spirit of the Lord Jesus (Ephesians 5:20). What follows (directions to the various groups) is in this same vein. Sociological problems have always existed. Paul puts his finger on the sore spot in each group with unerring skill like a true diagnostician.
