Sounds like Carson may have had two passages in mind as he wrote this:

"Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus, who, being in the

which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow,
of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, and
that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of
God the Father." (Phil. 2:5-8)
