Read Ephesians 1:15 Using Other Translations

Wherefore I also, after I heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus, and love unto all the saints,
For this reason, because I have heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love toward all the saints,
Ever since I first heard of your strong faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for God’s people everywhere,

What does Ephesians 1:15 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Ephesians 1:15

Wherefore I also
As well as others:

after I heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus;
who is the immediate object of faith, and a very proper and suitable one; having every thing in him that is agreeable to the case and circumstances of those that trust in him. And the grace of faith, which terminates on him, is a seeing him, a beholding the glory of his person, and the fulness of his grace; a going to him, and venturing on him; a laying hold upon him, and embracing of him; a committing all unto him, and a leaning and depending on him, and a living upon him, and a walking on in him.

And love unto all the saints:
whether Jew or Gentile, rich or poor, greater or lesser believers, of meaner gifts, or larger abilities; and which love was unfeigned, fervent, active, and laborious; and which is the evidence of regeneration, and without which a profession is in vain. These two graces, faith and love, are inseparable; they always go together, and are to be found in the same persons; and where they are, they cannot be hid, as they were not in these Ephesians; their faith was professed by them, and was made public, and their love showed itself in deeds, as well as in words, to the saints: hence the apostle came to hear of them both, upon the certain relation of others; for these things were come abroad, and were talked of; (See Gill on Colossians 1:3). (See Gill on Colossians 1:4). (See Gill on Philemon 1:4). (See Gill on Philemon 1:5).
