Colossians 1:15-20 – Structure

ὅς ἐστιν εἰκὼν τοῦ θεοῦ τοῦ ἀοράτου πρωτότοκος πάσης κτίσεως

ὅτι ἐν αὐτῷ ἐκτίσθη

τὰ πάντα ἐν τοῖς οὐρανοῖς καὶ ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς

τὰ ὁρατὰ καὶ τὰ ἀόρατα

εἴτε θρόνοι εἴτε κυριότητες

εἴτε ἀρχαὶ εἴτε ἐξουσίαι

τὰ πάντα δι’ αὐτοῦ καὶ εἰς αὐτὸν ἔκτισται


καὶ αὐτός ἐστιν πρὸ πάντων καὶ τὰ πάντα ἐν αὐτῷ συνέστηκεν

καὶ αὐτός ἐστιν ἡ κεφαλὴ τοῦ σώματος τῆς ἐκκλησίας

ὅς ἐστιν ἀρχή πρωτότοκος ἐκ τῶν νεκρῶν ἵνα γένηται ἐν πᾶσιν αὐτὸς πρωτεύων

ὅτι ἐν αὐτῷ εὐδόκησεν

πᾶν τὸ πλήρωμα κατοικῆσαι

καὶ δι’ αὐτοῦ ἀποκαταλλάξαι τὰ πάντα εἰς αὐτόν εἰρηνοποιήσας διὰ τοῦ αἵματος τοῦ σταυροῦ αὐτοῦ [δι’ αὐτοῦ]

       εἴτε τὰ ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς

       εἴτε τὰ ἐν τοῖς οὐρανοῖς
