and raised us up with him, and made us to sit with him in the heavenly places in Messiah Yeshua,
that in the ages to come he might show the exceeding riches of his grace in kindness toward us in Messiah Yeshua;
for by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God,
not of works, that no one would boast.
For we are his workmanship, created in Messiah Yeshua for good works, which God prepared before that we would walk in them.
Therefore remember that once you, the Goyim in the flesh, who are called "uncircumcision" by that which is called "circumcision," (in the flesh, made by hands);
that you were at that time separate from Messiah, alienated from the commonwealth of Yisra'el, and strangers from the covenants of the promise, having no hope and without God in the world.
But now in Messiah Yeshua you who once were far off are made near in the blood of Messiah.
For he is our shalom, who made both one, and broke down the middle wall of partition,
having abolished in the flesh the hostility, the law of mitzvot contained in ordinances, that he might create in himself one new man of the two, making shalom;
and might reconcile them both in one body to God through the cross, having killed the hostility thereby.
