Hymn about Christ’s work

15 The Son is the image of the invisible God,
        the one who is first over all creation,[a]

16 Because all things were created by him:
        both in the heavens and on the earth,
        the things that are visible and the things that are invisible.
            Whether they are thrones or powers,
            or rulers or authorities,
        all things were created through him and for him.

17 He existed before all things,
        and all things are held together in him.
