15 “He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation; 16 for in him all things in
heaven and on earth were created, things visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or
rulers or powersall things have been created through him and for him. 17 He himself is before all
things, and in him all things hold together. 18 He is the head of the body, the church; he is the
beginning, the firstborn from the dead, so that he might come to have first place in everything.
19 For in him all the fullness of God was pleased to dwell, 20 and through him God was pleased to
reconcile to himself all things, whether on earth or in heaven, by making peace through the blood of
his cross.”
