Tyndale (TYN) New International Version (NIV)
1 For this cause I Paul a in ye bodes of Iesus christ for youre sakes which are hethen: 1 For this reason I, Paul, the prisoner of Christ Jesus for the sake of you Gentiles--
2 Yf ye have hearde of the ministracion of the grace of god which is geven me to you warde. 2 Surely you have heard about the administration of God's grace that was given to me for you,
3 For by revelacion shewed he this mistery vnto me as I wrote above in feawe wordes 3 that is, the mystery made known to me by revelation, as I have already written briefly.
4 wher by when ye rede ye maye knowe myne vnderstondynge in the mistery of Christ 4 In reading this, then, you will be able to understand my insight into the mystery of Christ,
5 which mistery in tymes passed was not opened vnto the sonnes of men as it is nowe declared vnto his holy apostles and prophetes by the sprete: 5 which was not made known to men in other generations as it has now been revealed by the Spirit to God's holy apostles and prophets.
6 that the gentyls shuld be inheritours also and of the same body and partakers of his promis yt is in Christ by ye meanes of the gospell 6 This mystery is that through the gospel the Gentiles are heirs together with Israel, members together of one body, and sharers together in the promise in Christ Jesus.
7 whereof I am made a minister by the gyfte of the grace of god geve vnto me thorow ye workynge of his power. 7 I became a servant of this gospel by the gift of God's grace given me through the working of his power.
8 Vnto me the lest of all sayntes is this grace geven that I shuld preache amonge the gentyls the unsearchable ryches of Christ 8 Although I am less than the least of all God's people, this grace was given me: to preach to the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ,
9 and to make all men se what the felyshippe of the mistery is which from the begynnynge of the worlde hath bene hid in God which made all thynges thorow Iesus Christ 9 and to make plain to everyone the administration of this mystery, which for ages past was kept hidden in God, who created all things.
10 to the intent that now vnto the rulars and powers in heven myght be knowe by the cogregacion ye many folde wisdome of god 10 His intent was that now, through the church, the manifold wisdom of God should be made known to the rulers and authorities in the heavenly realms,
11 accordinge to ye eternall purpose which he purposed in Christ Iesu oure lorde 11 according to his eternal purpose which he accomplished in Christ Jesus our Lord.
12 by who we are bolde to drawe nye in ye trust which we have by faith on hi 12 In him and through faith in him we may approach God with freedom and confidence.
13 Wherfore I desire yt ye faynt not because of my trybulacios for youre sakes: which is youre prayse. 13 I ask you, therefore, not to be discouraged because of my sufferings for you, which are your glory.
14 For this cause I bowe my knees vnto the father of oure lorde Iesus Christ 14 For this reason I kneel before the Father,
15 which is father over all that ys called father In heven and in erth 15 from whom his whole family in heaven and on earth derives its name.
16 that he wolde graunt you acordynge to the ryches of his glory that ye maye be strenghted with myght by his sprete in the inner man 16 I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being,
17 yt Christ maye dwell in youre hertes by fayth yt ye beynge roted and grounded in loue 17 so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love,
18 myght be able to comprehende with all sayntes what ys that bredth aud length deepth and heyth: 18 may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ,
19 and to knowe what is the love of Christ which love passeth knowledge: that ye might be fulfilled with all manner of fulnes which commeth of God. 19 and to know this love that surpasses knowledge--that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.
20 Vnto him that is able to do excedynge aboudantly above all that we axe or thynke accordynge to the power that worketh in vs 20 Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us,
21 be prayse in the congregacion by Iesus Christ thorow out all generacios from tyme to tyme Amen. 21 to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.
