1:20 This power 1 he exercised 2 in Christ when he raised him 3 from the dead and seated him 4 at his right hand in the heavenly realms 5 1:21 far above every rule and authority and power and dominion and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in the one to come. 1:22 And God 6 put 7 all things under Christ’s 8 feet, 9 and he gave him to the church as head over all things. 10
2:9 As a result God exalted him
and gave him the name
that is above every name,
2:10 so that at the name of Jesus
