7 1of which I was made a 2minister, according to the gift of 3God's grace which was given to me 4according to the working of His power.
8 To me, 5the very least of all saints, this grace was given, to 6preach to the Gentiles the unfathomable 7riches of Christ,
9 and to bring to light what is the administration of the 8mystery which for ages has been 9hidden in God 10who created all things;
10 so that the manifold 11wisdom of God might now be 12made known through the church to the 13rulers and the authorities in 14the heavenly places.
11 This was in 15accordance with the eternal purpose which He carried out in 16Christ Jesus our Lord,
13 Therefore I ask you not 19to lose heart at my tribulations 20on your behalf, for they are your glory.
