|New Living Translation (NLT)
||New International Version (NIV)
18 Christ is the head of the church, which is his body. He is the first of all who will rise from the dead, so he is first in everything.
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.
