3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord, Yeshua the Messiah, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Messiah;
4 even as he chose us in him before the foundation of the world, that we would be holy and without blemish before him in love;
5 having predestined us for adoption as sons through Yeshua the Messiah to himself, according to the good pleasure of his desire,
6 to the praise of the glory of his grace, by which he freely bestowed favor on us in the Beloved,
7 in whom we have our redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace,
8 which he made to abound toward us in all wisdom and prudence,
9 making known to us the mystery of his will, according to his good pleasure which he purposed in him
10 to an administration of the fullness of the times, to sum up all things in Messiah, the things in the heavens, and the things on the eretz, in him;
11 in whom also we were made a heritage, having been foreordained according to the purpose of him who works all things after the counsel of his will;
12 to the end that we should be to the praise of his glory, we who had before hoped in Messiah:
13 in whom you also, having heard the word of the truth, the Good News of your salvation, -- in whom, having also believed, you were sealed with the Ruach HaKodesh of promise,
14 who is a pledge of our inheritance, to the redemption of God's own possession, to the praise of his glory.
