- Which he wrought in Christe when he raysed hym from the dead, and set him on his ryght hande in heauenly [places]
- Farre aboue all rule, and power, and myght, and dominion, and euery name that is named, not in this worlde only, but also in the worlde to come.
- And hath put all thynges vnder his feete, and gaue him [to be] the head ouer all thynges to the Churche,
- Which is his body, the fulnesse of him that fylleth all in all.
