1 For the grace of this thing I Paul, the bound of Christ Jesus [the bound of Jesus Christ], for you heathen men,
2 if nevertheless ye have heard the dispensation of God's grace, that is given to me in you.
3 For by revelation the sacrament is made known to me, as I above wrote in short thing,
4 as ye be able to read, and understand my prudence in the mystery of Christ. [as ye reading may understand my prudence in the mystery of Christ.]
5 Which was not known to other generations to the sons of men, as it is now showed to his holy apostles and prophets in the Spirit,
6 that heathen men be even-heirs, and of one body, and partners together of his promise [and together partners of his promise] in Christ Jesus by the evangel;
7 whose minister I am made, by the gift of God's grace, which is given to me by the working of his virtue. [whose minister I am made, after the gift of God's grace, which is given to me after the working of his virtue.]
8 To me, least of all saints, this grace is given to preach among heathen men the unsearchable riches of Christ,
9 and to lighten all men [and to enlighten all men], which is the dispensation of [the] sacrament hid from worlds in God, that made all things of nought;
10 that the much-fold wisdom of God be known to princes and potentates in heavenly things by the church,
11 by the before-ordinance of worlds [after the setting of worlds], which he made in Christ Jesus our Lord.
12 In whom we have trust and nigh coming [to], in trusting by the faith of him.
13 For which thing I ask, that ye fail not in my tribulations for you, which is your glory.
