Now I rejoice in my sufferings on behalf of you, and I fill up in my flesh what is lacking of the afflictions of Christ, on behalf of his body which is the church,
of which I became a minister, according to God's stewardship which was given to me for you, to complete the word of God,
the mystery [which] has been hidden from the ages and from the generations, but has now been revealed to his saints,
to whom God wanted to make known what [is] the glorious wealth of this mystery among the Gentiles, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory,
whom we proclaim, [by]a admonishing every personb and teaching every personc with all wisdom, in order that we may present every persond mature in Christ,
for which [purpose] also I labor, striving according to his working which is at work powerfully in me.
