1 Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, to the saints which are at Ephesus, aand to the faithful in Christ Jesus:
2 bGrace be to you, and peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ.
3 cBlessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ:
4 According as dhe hath chosen us in him ebefore the foundation of the world, that we should fbe holy and without blame before him in love:
5 gHaving predestinated us unto hthe adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, iaccording to the good pleasure of his will,
6 lTo the praise of the glory of his grace, kwherein he hath made us accepted in jthe beloved.
7 mIn whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to nthe riches of his grace; 8 Wherein he hath abounded toward us in all wisdom and prudence; 9 oHaving made known unto us the mystery of his will, according to his good pleasure pwhich he hath purposed in himself: 10 That in the dispensation of sthe fulness of times rhe might gather together in one qall things in Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth; even in him: 11 tIn whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to uthe purpose of him who worketh all things after the counsel of his own will: 12 vThat we should be to the praise of his glory, wwho first trusted in Christ. 13 In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, xye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise, 14 yWhich is the earnest of our inheritance zuntil the redemption of athe purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory.
15 Wherefore I also, after I heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus, and love unto all the saints, 16 Cease not to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers; 17 That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, bmay give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him: 18 cThe eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints, 19 And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, daccording to the working of his mighty power, 20 Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places, 21 eFar above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come: 22 And fhath put all things under his feet, and gave him gto be the head over all things to the church, 23 hWhich is his body, the fulness of him ithat filleth all in all.
