1 Paul, the apostle of Jesus Christ, by the will of God, to all the saints that be at Ephesus, and to the faithful men in Jesus Christ [and to the faithful in Christ Jesus], 1 Paul, an apostle of Christ Jesus by the will of God, To the saints in Ephesus, the faithful in Christ Jesus:
2 grace be to you and peace of God, our Father, and of our Lord Jesus Christ [and of the Lord Jesus Christ]. 2 Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
3 Blessed be God and the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, that hath blessed us in all spiritual blessing in heavenly things in Christ, 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 as he hath chosen us in himself before the making of the world, that we were holy [as he chose us in him before the making of the world, that we should be holy], and without wem in his sight, in charity. 4 For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight. In love
5 Which hath before-ordained us into [the] adoption of sons by Jesus Christ into him, by the purpose of his will [after the purpose of his will], 5 he predestined us to be adopted as his sons through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will--
6 into the praising of the glory of his grace; in which he hath glorified us in his dear-worthy Son [in which he made us able to his grace in his dear-worthy Son]. 6 to the praise of his glorious grace, which he has freely given us in the One he loves.
7 In whom we have redemption by his blood, [and] forgiveness of sins, after the riches of his grace, 7 In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God's grace
8 that abounded greatly in us in all wisdom and prudence, 8 that he lavished on us with all wisdom and understanding.
9 to make known to us the sacrament of his will, by the good pleasance of him [after the good pleasance of him]; 9 And he made known to us the mystery of his will according to his good pleasure, which he purposed in Christ,
10 the which sacrament he purposed in him in the dispensation of plenty of times to store up (or include) all things in Christ, which be in heavens, and which be in earth, in him. [+that he purposed in him in the dispensation of plenty of times to enstore all things in Christ, which be in heavens, and which be in earth, in him.] 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 In whom [also] we be called by lot, before-ordained by the purpose of him that worketh all things by the counsel of his will; [+In whom also we by lot be called, before-ordained after the purpose of him that worketh all things after the counsel 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 that we be into the praising of his glory, we that have hoped before in Christ [which before hoped in Christ]. 12 in order that we, who were the first to hope in Christ, might be for the praise of his glory.
13 In whom also ye were called, when ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your health, in whom ye believing be marked with the Holy Ghost of promise, 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 which is the earnest of our heritage, into the redemption of purchasing, into [the] praising of 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 Therefore and I hearing your faith, that is in Christ Jesus, and the love into all saints, 15 For this reason, ever since I heard about your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for all the saints,
16 cease not to do thankings for you, making mind of you in my prayers; 16 I have not stopped giving thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers.
17 that God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, give to you the spirit of wisdom and of revelation, into the knowing 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 and the eyes of your heart lightened, that ye know, which is the hope of his calling, and which be the riches of the glory of his heritage in saints; [the eyes of your heart enlightened, that ye know, which is the hope of his calling, and which the riches of the glory of his heritage in saints;] 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 which is the excellent greatness of his virtue into us that have believed, by the working of the might of his virtue, [and which is the over-seeming greatness of his virtue into us that have believed, after the working of the might of his virtue,] 19 and his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is like the working of his mighty strength,
20 which he wrought in Christ, raising him from death [raising him from dead], and setting him on his right half in heavenly things, 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 above each principat, and potentate, and virtue, and domination, and above each name that is named, not only in this world, but also in the world to coming [and each name that is named, not only in this world, but also in the world to come]; 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 and made all things subject under his feet, and gave him to be head over all the church, 22 And God placed all things under his feet and appointed him to be head over everything for the church,
23 that is the body of him, and the plenty of him, which is all things in all things fulfilled. 23 which is his body, the fullness of him who fills everything in every way.
