Weymouth New Testament (WNT) New International Version (NIV)
1 To you Gentiles also, who were dead through your offences and sins, 1 As for you, you were dead in your transgressions and sins,
2 which were once habitual to you while you walked in the ways of this world and obeyed the Prince of the powers of the air, the spirits that are now at work in the hearts of the sons of disobedience--to you God has given Life. 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 them all of us also formerly passed our lives, governed by the inclinations of our lower natures, indulging the cravings of those natures and of our own thoughts, and were in our original state deserving of anger like all 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, being rich in mercy, because of the intense love which He bestowed on us, 4 But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy,
5 caused us, dead though we were through our offences, to live with Christ--it is by grace that 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 raised us with Him from the dead, and enthroned us with Him in the heavenly realms as being in Christ Jesus, 6 And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus,
