King James Version (KJV) New International Version (NIV)
1 And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins; 1 As for you, you were dead in your transgressions and sins,
2 Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience: 2 in which you used to live when you followed the ways of this world and of the ruler of the kingdom of the air, the spirit who is now at work in those who are disobedient.
3 Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others. 3 All of us also lived among them at one time, gratifying the cravings of our sinful nature and following its desires and thoughts. Like the rest, we were by nature objects of wrath.
4 But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us, 4 But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy,
5 Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved ;) 5 made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions--it is by grace you have been saved.
6 And hath raised us up together , and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus: 6 And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus,
7 That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus. 7 in order that in the coming ages he might show the incomparable riches of his grace, expressed in his kindness to us in Christ Jesus.
8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: 8 For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith--and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God--
9 Not of works, lest any man should boast . 9 not by works, so that no one can boast.
10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them. 10 For we are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.
