English Standard Version (ESV) New International Version (NIV)
1 And you were dead in the trespasses and sins 1 As for you, you were dead in your transgressions and sins,
2 in which you once walked, following the course of this world, following the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that is now at work in the sons of disobedience-- 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 among whom we all once lived in the passions of our flesh, carrying out the desires of the body and the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, like the rest of mankind. 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, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, 4 But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy,
5 even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ--by grace you have been saved-- 5 made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions--it is by grace you have been saved.
6 and raised us up with him and seated us with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, 6 And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus,
