And you awere 1deadbin your trespasses and sins,
in which you 2formerlywalkedaccording to the ccourse of 3thisworld, according to 4the prince of the power of the air, of the spirit that is nowworking in 5the sons of disobedience.
3Among them we tooall6formerlylived in 7the lusts of our flesh, dindulging the desires of the flesh and of the emind, and were 8by nature9children of wrath, 10even as the rest.
But God, being11rich in mercy, because of 12His greatlove with which He loved us,
5even when we were 13deadfin our transgressions, made us alivetogethergwith Christ (14by grace you have beensaved ),
and 15raised us up with Him, and 16seated us with Him in 17the heavenly places in 18ChristJesus,
7so that in the ages to come He might show the surpassing19riches of His grace in 20kindnesstoward us in ChristJesus.
For 21by grace you have been saved22throughfaith; and hthat not of yourselves, it is 23the gift of God;
924not as a result of works, so that 25noone may boast.
For we are His workmanship, 26created in 27ChristJesus for 28goodworks, whichGod29preparedbeforehandso that we would 30walk in them.
