BibleNew TestamentColossians


16 For by* him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:


16 for in him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or authorities—all things were created through him and for him.

* Translations giving "in him" rather than "by him" include RV, RSV, NRSV, NET, NIV and ASV. See discussion at Colossians 1:12-18
