The Authorized Version translates: "For it pleased the Father that in Him should all fullness dwell," while the Revised Version renders it: "For it was the good pleasure of the Father that in Him should all the fulness dwell.''
Whom has “it pleased"? This is not expressly stated in this verse if one translates as does the Authorized Version, the Revised Version, the Vulgate, and Luther.
