Holman Christian Standard (CSB) New International Version (NIV)
1 And you were dead in your trespasses and sins 1 As for you, you were dead in your transgressions and sins,
2 in which you previously walked according to this worldly age, according to the ruler of the atmospheric domain, the spirit now working in the disobedient. 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 We too all previously lived among them in our fleshly desires, carrying out the inclinations of our flesh and thoughts, and by nature we were children under wrath, as the others were also. 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 abundant in mercy, because of His great love that He had for us, 4 But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy,
5 made us alive with the Messiah even though we were dead in trespasses. By grace you are saved! 5 made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions--it is by grace you have been saved.
6 He also raised us up with Him and seated us with Him in the heavens, in Christ Jesus, 6 And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus,
7 so that in the coming ages He might display the immeasurable riches of His grace in [His] kindness to 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 you are saved through faith, and this is not from yourselves; it is God's gift- 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 from works, so that no one can boast. 9 not by works, so that no one can boast.
10 For we are His creation-created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared ahead of time so 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.
