New Living Translation (NLT) New International Version (NIV)
20 and by him God reconciled everything to himself. He made peace with everything in heaven and on earth by means of his blood on the cross. 20 and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through his blood, shed on the cross.
21 This includes you who were once so far away from God. You were his enemies, separated from him by your evil thoughts and actions, 21 Once you were alienated from God and were enemies in your minds because of your evil behavior.
22 yet now he has brought you back as his friends. He has done this through his death on the cross in his own human body. As a result, he has brought you into the very presence of God, and you are holy and blameless as you stand before him without a single fault. 22 But now he has reconciled you by Christ's physical body through death to present you holy in his sight, without blemish and free from accusation--
