Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ through the will of God, to the saints who are in Ephesus, and to the faithful in Christ Jesus:
Grace to you, and peace from God our Father, and the Lord Jesus Christ!
Blessed [is] the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who did bless us in every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ,
according as He did choose us in him before the foundation of the world, for our being holy and unblemished before Him, in love,
having foreordained us to the adoption of sons through Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will,
to the praise of the glory of His grace, in which He did make us accepted in the beloved,
