1 For this cause I Paul, athe prisoner of Jesus Christ bfor you Gentiles,
2 If ye have heard of cthe dispensation of the grace of God dwhich is given me to you-ward:
3 How that by revelation ehe made known unto me the mystery; (as I wrote afore in few words,
4 Whereby, when ye read, ye may understand my knowledge fin the mystery of Christ)
5 gWhich in other ages was not made known unto the sons of men, as it is now revealed unto his holy apostles and prophets by the Spirit;
6 That the Gentiles should be fellowheirs, and of the same body, and hpartakers of his promise in Christ by the gospel:
7 Whereof I was made a minister, according to the gift of the grace of God given unto me by ithe effectual working of his power.
8 Unto me, who am less than the least of all saints, is this grace given, that I should preach among the Gentiles jthe unsearchable riches of Christ;
9 And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, lwhich from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, kwho created all things by Jesus Christ:
10 mTo the intent that now nunto the principalities and powers in heavenly places omight be known by the church the manifold wisdom of God,
11 According to the eternal purpose which he purposed in Christ Jesus our Lord:
12 In whom we have boldness and access with confidence by the faith of him.
13 Wherefore I desire that ye faint not at my tribulations for you, which is your glory. 14 For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, 15 Of whom pthe whole family in heaven and earth is named, 16 That he would grant you, qaccording to the riches of his glory, rto be strengthened with might by his Spirit in sthe inner man; 17 tThat Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, 18 May be able to comprehend with all saints uwhat is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; 19 And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled vwith all the fulness of God. 20 Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us, 21 wUnto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.
