    Ephesians 1:19 And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power,
    Ephesians 1:20 Which he worked in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places,
    Ephesians 1:21 Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come:
    Ephesians 1:22 And has put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church,
    Ephesians 1:23 Which is his body, the fullness of him that fills all in all.
