Wycliffe (WYC) New International Version (NIV)
1 And when ye were dead in your guilts and sins, 1 As for you, you were dead in your transgressions and sins,
2 in which ye wandered sometime after the course of this world, after the prince of the power of this air, of the spirit that worketh now into the sons of unbelief; 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 in which also we all lived sometime [in whom we all lived sometime] in the desires of our flesh, doing the wills of the flesh and of the thoughts, and we were by kind the sons of wrath, as other men [as and 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, that is rich in mercy, for his full much charity in which he loved us, 4 But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy,
5 yea, when we were dead in sins, quickened us together in Christ, by whose grace ye be saved, 5 made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions--it is by grace you have been saved.
6 and again-raised together, and made together to sit in heavenly things 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 he should show in the worlds above coming the plenteous riches of his grace in goodness on [upon] us in 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 ye be saved by faith, and this not of you [and that not of you]; for 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, that no man have glory. 9 not by works, so that no one can boast.
10 For we be the making of him, made of nought in Christ Jesus, in good works, which God hath ordained, that we go in those works [that God made ready before, that in them we go]. 10 For we are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.
11 For which thing be ye mindful, that sometime ye were heathen in flesh, which were said prepuce, from that that is said circumcision made by hand in flesh [from that that is said circumcision in flesh made by hand]; 11 Therefore, remember that formerly you who are Gentiles by birth and called "uncircumcised" by those who call themselves "the circumcision" (that done in the body by the hands of men)--
12 and ye were in that time without Christ, aliened from the living of Israel, and guests of the testaments [+that were in that time without Christ, aliened from the living of Israel, and harboured men, or guests, of the testaments], not having hope of promise, and without God in this world. 12 remember that at that time you were separate from Christ, excluded from citizenship in Israel and foreigners to the covenants of the promise, without hope and without God in the world.
13 But now in Christ Jesus ye that were sometime far, be made nigh in the blood of Christ. 13 But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far away have been brought near through the blood of Christ.
14 For he is our peace, that made both one, and unbinding the middle wall of a wall without mortar, 14 For he himself is our peace, who has made the two one and has destroyed the barrier, the dividing wall of hostility,
15 enmities in his flesh; and voided the law of commandments by dooms [voiding the law of commandments by dooms], that he make two in himself into a new man, making peace, 15 by abolishing in his flesh the law with its commandments and regulations. His purpose was to create in himself one new man out of the two, thus making peace,
16 to reconcile both in one body to God by the cross [that he reconcile both in one body to God by the cross], slaying the enmities in himself. 16 and in this one body to reconcile both of them to God through the cross, by which he put to death their hostility.
17 And he coming preached peace to you that were far, and peace to them that were nigh; 17 He came and preached peace to you who were far away and peace to those who were near.
18 for by him we both have nigh coming in one Spirit to the Father. 18 For through him we both have access to the Father by one Spirit.
19 Therefore now ye be not guests and strangers, but ye be citizens of saints, and [the] household members of God; 19 Consequently, you are no longer foreigners and aliens, but fellow citizens with God's people and members of God's household,
20 above builded on the foundament of apostles and of prophets [+above built upon the foundament of apostles and prophets], upon that highest corner stone, Christ Jesus; 20 built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus himself as the chief cornerstone.
21 in whom each building made waxeth into an holy temple in the Lord. 21 In him the whole building is joined together and rises to become a holy temple in the Lord.
22 In whom also ye be builded together into the habitation of God, in the Holy Ghost. [In whom and ye be built together into the habitacle of God, in the Holy Ghost.] 22 And in him you too are being built together to become a dwelling in which God lives by his Spirit.
