14 For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us;
15 Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one* new man, so making peace;
16 And that he might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby*:a
17 And came and preached peace to you which were afar off, and to them that were nigh.
