CJB 1 It is a consequence of this that I, Sha'ul, am a prisoner of the Messiah Yeshua on behalf of you Gentiles. NIV 1 For this reason I, Paul, the prisoner of Christ Jesus for the sake of you Gentiles-- CJB 2 I assume that you have heard of the work God in his grace has given me to do for your benefit, NIV 2 Surely you have heard about the administration of God's grace that was given to me for you, CJB 3 and that it was by a revelation that this secret plan was made known to me. I have already written about it briefly, NIV 3 that is, the mystery made known to me by revelation, as I have already written briefly. CJB 4 and if you read what I have written, you will grasp how I understand this secret plan concerning the Messiah. NIV 4 In reading this, then, you will be able to understand my insight into the mystery of Christ, CJB 5 In past generations it was not made known to mankind, as the Spirit is now revealing it to his emissaries and prophets, NIV 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. CJB 6 that in union with the Messiah and through the Good News the Gentiles were to be joint heirs, a joint body and joint sharers with the Jews in what God has promised. NIV 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. CJB 7 I became a servant of this Good News by God's gracious gift, which he gave me through the operation of his power. NIV 7 I became a servant of this gospel by the gift of God's grace given me through the working of his power. CJB 8 To me, the least important of all God's holy people, was given this privilege of announcing to the Gentiles the Good News of the Messiah's unfathomable riches, NIV 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, CJB 9 and of letting everyone see how this secret plan is going to work out. This plan, kept hidden for ages by God, the Creator of everything, NIV 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. CJB 10 is for the rulers and authorities in heaven to learn, through the existence of the Messianic Community, how many-sided God's wisdom is. NIV 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, CJB 11 This accords with God's age-old purpose, accomplished in the Messiah Yeshua, our Lord. NIV 11 according to his eternal purpose which he accomplished in Christ Jesus our Lord. CJB 12 In union with him, through his faithfulness, we have boldness and confidence when we approach God. NIV 12 In him and through faith in him we may approach God with freedom and confidence. CJB 13 So I ask you not to be discouraged by the troubles I endure on your behalf - it is all for your glory. NIV 13 I ask you, therefore, not to be discouraged because of my sufferings for you, which are your glory. CJB 14 For this reason, I fall on my knees before the Father, NIV 14 For this reason I kneel before the Father, CJB 15 from whom every family in heaven and on earth receives its character. NIV 15 from whom his whole family in heaven and on earth derives its name. CJB 16 I pray that from the treasures of his glory he will empower you with inner strength by his Spirit, NIV 16 I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, CJB 17 so that the Messiah may live in your hearts through your trusting. Also I pray that you will be rooted and founded in love, NIV 17 so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, CJB 18 so that you, with all God's people, will be given strength to grasp the breadth, length, height and depth of the Messiah's love, NIV 18 may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, CJB 19 yes, to know it, even though it is beyond all knowing, so that you will be filled with all the fullness of God. NIV 19 and to know this love that surpasses knowledge--that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. CJB 20 Now to him who by his power working in us is able to do far beyond anything we can ask or imagine, NIV 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, CJB 21 to him be glory in the Messianic Community and in the Messiah Yeshua from generation to generation forever. Amen. NIV 21 to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.
