Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, to the saints who are at Ephesus, and to the faithful in Christ Jesus:
Grace [be] to you, and peace from God our Father, and [from] the Lord Jesus Christ.
Blessed [be] the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly [places] in Christ:
According as he hath chosen us in him, before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love:
Having predestinated us to the adoption of children to himself by Jesus Christ, according to the good pleasure of his will,
To the praise of the glory of his grace, in which he hath made us accepted in the beloved:
