And hath put all things under His feet, and gave Him to be the head over all things to the ekklesia,
And He put all things under His feet, and gave Him to be head over all things to the ekklesia,
And He put all things in subjection under His feet, and gave Him as head over all things to the ekklesia,
And God placed all things under His feet and appointed Him to be head over everything for the ekklesia,
And He has put all things under His feet and has appointed Him the universal and supreme Head of the ekklesia [a headship exercised throughout the ekklesia],
And all things He put in subjection under His feet, and Him He gave as Head over all things to the Ekklesia,
God has placed everything under the power of Christ and has set Him up as supreme head to the Ekklesia,
And so He has put all things under His feet and made Him the supreme Head of the ekklesia.
