Collosians 1:16-17, Amplified Bible
"For it was in Him that all things were created, in heaven and on earth, things seen and things unseen, whether thrones, dominions, rulers, or authorities; all things were created and exist through Him [By His service, intervention] and in and for Him.
And He Himself existed before all things and in Him all things consist (cohere, are held together).
