Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, to the saints which are at Ephesus, and to the faithful in Christ Jesus:
Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will,
In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace;
Wherefore I also, after I heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus, and love unto all the saints,
But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us,
For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
And that he might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby :
For through him we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father.
That the Gentiles should be fellowheirs, and of the same body, and partakers of his promise in Christ by the gospel:
And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ:
To the intent that now unto the principalities and powers in heavenly places might be known by the church the manifold wisdom of God,
In whom we have boldness and access with confidence by the faith of him.
That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man;
That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love,
One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.
From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part , maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love.
Having the understanding darkened , being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart:
Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience.
Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is.
Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand .
Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;
Grace be with all them that love our Lord Jesus Christ in sincerity. Amen . [To the Ephesians written from Rome, by Tychicus.]
