Colossians 1:16-18 Easy-to-Read Version (ERV)

16 Through his power all things were made:
    things in heaven and on earth, seen and not seen—
all spiritual rulers, lords, powers, and authorities.
    Everything was made through him and for him.

17 The Son was there before anything was made.
    And all things continue because of him.
18 He is the head of the body, which is the church.
    He is the beginning of everything else.
And he is the first among all who will be raised from death.[a]
    So in everything he is most important.


  1. Colossians 1:18 first … death Literally, “firstborn from the dead.”
Easy-to-Read Version (ERV)
