Ephesians 1:3-14 (Bible in Basic English)

View In My Bible
3 Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has given us every blessing of the Spirit in the heavens in Christ: 4 Even as he made selection of us in him from the first, so that we might be holy and free from all evil before him in love: 5 As we were designed before by him for the position of sons to himself, through Jesus Christ, in the good pleasure of his purpose, 6 To the praise of the glory of his grace, which he freely gave to us in the Loved One: 7 In whom we have salvation through his blood, the forgiveness of our sins, through the wealth of his grace, 8 Which he gave us in full measure in all wisdom and care; 9 Having made clear to us the secret of his purpose, in agreement with the design which he had in mind, to put into his hands 10 The ordering of the times when they are complete, so that all things might come to a head in Christ, the things in heaven and the things on the earth; in him, I say, 11 In whom we have a heritage, being marked out from the first in his purpose who does all things in agreement with his designs; 12 So that his glory might have praise through us who first had hope in Christ: 13 In whom you, having been given the true word, the good news of your salvation, and through your faith in him, were given the sign of the Holy Spirit of hope, 14 Which is the first-fruit of our heritage, till God gets back that which is his, to the praise of his glory.
