Complete Jewish Bible (CJB) New International Version (NIV)
1 From: Sha'ul, by God's will an emissary of the Messiah Yeshua To: God's people living in Ephesus, that is, those who are trusting in the Messiah Yeshua: 1 Paul, an apostle of Christ Jesus by the will of God, To the saints in Ephesus, the faithful in Christ Jesus:
2 Grace to you and shalom from God our Father and the Lord Yeshua the Messiah. 2 Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
3 Praised be ADONAI, Father of our Lord Yeshua the Messiah, who in the Messiah has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in heaven. 3 Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ.
4 In the Messiah he chose us in love before the creation of the universe to be holy and without defect in his presence. 4 For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight. In love
5 He determined in advance that through Yeshua the Messiah we would be his sons - in keeping with his pleasure and purpose - 5 he predestined us to be adopted as his sons through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will--
6 so that we would bring him praise commensurate with the glory of the grace he gave us through the Beloved One. 6 to the praise of his glorious grace, which he has freely given us in the One he loves.
7 In union with him, through the shedding of his blood, we are set free - our sins are forgiven; this accords with the wealth of the grace 7 In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God's grace
8 he has lavished on us. In all his wisdom and insight 8 that he lavished on us with all wisdom and understanding.
9 he has made known to us his secret plan, which by his own will he designed beforehand in connection with the Messiah 9 And he made known to us the mystery of his will according to his good pleasure, which he purposed in Christ,
10 and will put into effect when the time is ripe - his plan to place everything in heaven and on earth under the Messiah's headship. 10 to be put into effect when the times will have reached their fulfillment--to bring all things in heaven and on earth together under one head, even Christ.
11 Also in union with him we were given an inheritance, we who were picked in advance according to the purpose of the One who effects everything in keeping with the decision of his will, 11 In him we were also chosen, having been predestined according to the plan of him who works out everything in conformity with the purpose of his will,
12 so that we who earlier had put our hope in the Messiah would bring him praise commensurate with his glory. 12 in order that we, who were the first to hope in Christ, might be for the praise of his glory.
13 Furthermore, you who heard the message of the truth, the Good News offering you deliverance, and put your trust in the Messiah were sealed by him with the promised Ruach HaKodesh, 13 And you also were included in Christ when you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation. Having believed, you were marked in him with a seal, the promised Holy Spirit,
14 who guarantees our inheritance until we come into possession of it and thus bring him praise commensurate with his glory. 14 who is a deposit guaranteeing our inheritance until the redemption of those who are God's possession--to the praise of his glory.
15 For this reason, ever since I heard about your trust in the Lord Yeshua and your love for all God's people, 15 For this reason, ever since I heard about your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for all the saints,
16 I have not stopped giving thanks for you. In my prayers I keep asking 16 I have not stopped giving thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers.
17 the God of our Lord Yeshua the Messiah, the glorious Father, to give you a spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you will have full knowledge of him. 17 I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better.
18 I pray that he will give light to the eyes of your hearts, so that you will understand the hope to which he has called you, what rich glories there are in the inheritance he has promised his people, 18 I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints,
19 and how surpassingly great is his power working in us who trust him. It works with the same mighty strength he used 19 and his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is like the working of his mighty strength,
20 when he worked in the Messiah to raise him from the dead and seat him at his right hand in heaven, 20 which he exerted in Christ when he raised him from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms,
21 far above every ruler, authority, power, dominion or any other name that can be named either in the 'olam hazeh or in the 'olam haba. 21 far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every title that can be given, not only in the present age but also in the one to come.
22 Also, he has put all things under his feeta and made him head over everything for the Messianic Community, 22 And God placed all things under his feet and appointed him to be head over everything for the church,
23 which is his body, the full expression of him who fills all creation. 23 which is his body, the fullness of him who fills everything in every way.
