Ephesians 1:3-6; Ephesians 1:8; Ephesians 1:12; Ephesians 1:19; Ephesians 2:5; Ephesians 2:7; Ephesians 5:2
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ:
According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love:
Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will,
To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved .
Wherein he hath abounded toward us in all wisdom and prudence;
That we should be to the praise of his glory, who first trusted in Christ.
And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe , according to the working of his mighty power,
Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved ;)
That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus.
And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweetsmelling savour.
