King James Version (KJV) New International Version (NIV)
15 Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature: 15 He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation.
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 by him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things were created by him and for him.
17 And he is before all things, and by him all things consist . 17 He is before all things, and in him all things hold together.
18 And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence . 18 And he is the head of the body, the church; he is the beginning and the firstborn from among the dead, so that in everything he might have the supremacy.
19 For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell ; 19 For God was pleased to have all his fullness dwell in him,
20 And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven. 20 and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through his blood, shed on the cross.
