Therefore, remember that ye, being in times past Gentiles in the flesh, who are called Uncircumcision by those who are called the Circumcision in the flesh so made by hands--
remember that at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope and without God in the world.
But now in Christ Jesus, ye who once were far off have been brought nigh by the blood of Christ.
For He is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us,
having abolished in His flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances, that He might make in Himself one new man out of the two, so making peace,
and that He might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby.
He came and preached peace to you who were afar off and to those who were nigh;
for through Him we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father.
Now therefore, ye are strangers and foreigners no more, but fellow citizens with the saints, and of the household of God.
Ye are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ Himself being the chief cornerstone,
in whom all the building, fitly framed together, groweth unto a holy temple in the Lord,
in Whom ye also are built together for a habitation of God through the Spirit.
