Lexham English Bible (LEB) New International Version (NIV)
11 Therefore remember that formerly you, the Gentiles in [the] flesh, the so-called uncircumcision by the so-called circumcision in [the] flesh, made by hands, 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 that you were at that time apart from Christ, alienated from the citizenship of Israel, and strangers to the covenants of promise, not having hope, and without God in the 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 you, the ones who once were far away, have become near by 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 himself is our peace, who made both one and broke down the dividing wall of the partition, the enmity, in his flesh, 14 For he himself is our peace, who has made the two one and has destroyed the barrier, the dividing wall of hostility,
15 invalidating the law of commandments in ordinances, in order that he might create the two in himself into one new man, [thus] 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 and might reconcile both in one body to God through the cross, killing the enmity 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 coming, he proclaimed the good news of peace to you who were far away and peace to the ones who were near, 17 He came and preached peace to you who were far away and peace to those who were near.
18 because through him [we] both have access in one Spirit to the Father. 18 For through him we both have access to the Father by one Spirit.
19 Consequently, therefore, you are no longer strangers and foreigners, but you are fellow citizens of the saints and members of the household 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 built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus himself being the cornerstone, 20 built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus himself as the chief cornerstone.
21 in whom the whole building, joined together, grows into a 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 you also are built up together into a dwelling place of God in [the] Spirit. 22 And in him you too are being built together to become a dwelling in which God lives by his Spirit.
