Ephesians 1

1 Paul an apostle of Christ Jesus through a desire of God, to the holy ones, to the ones who are in Ephesus, and trustworthy ones in Christ Jesus,

2 grace to you all, and peace away from God our Father and Lord Jesus Christ.

3 Blessed the God, that is, Father of our particular Lord Jesus Christ, the One Who blesses us in all spiritual blessing, in the heavenlies in Christ,

4 just as He spoke us out in Him before a downcast of order, for us to be holy ones and unblemished ones downward-in-appearance, His in love,

5 Who pre-appointed us into a son-place through Jesus Christ into Himself, according to the well-opinion of His particular desire,

6 into upper-praise of opinion of His particular grace, which He graced us in the One, Who having been and remains loved.

7 In Whom we are having the redemption through His particular blood, the release from the trespasses, according the wealth from His particular grace

8 from which He completely-exceeds into us in all wisdom and intelligence,

9 after He made known to us the secret of His particular desire, according to His particular well-opinion, which He pre-positioned in Him,

10 into a stewardship of the fullness of the times, to sum up the all things for Himself in the Christ, the things upon the heavens and the things upon the earth in Him.

11 In Whom also we were appointed by lots, ones who were pre-appointed according to a pre-position from the One Who is inwardly-working the all things according to the determination of His particular desire

12 into the result for us to be into an upper-praise of His opinion, the ones who having before trusted and continue trusting in the Christ.

13 In Whom you all also, after you all heard the word of the truth, the well-message of your particular salvation, in Whom also, after you all trusted, you all were sealed by the Spirit of the full-message by the Holy One,

14 Who is a pledge of our particular allotment, into redemption of the full-product, into upper-praise of His particular opinion.

15 On account of this, when I myself heard the trust according to you all in the Lord Jesus and the love, the one into all the holy ones,

16 I am not ceasing for myself, while well-gracing on behalf of you all, while making for myself remembrance upon my particular prayers,

17 in order that the God of our particular Lord, Jesus Christ, the Father of the Opinion, might give to you all a spirit of wisdom and of revelation in full-knowledge of Him,

18 after having been and remains enlightened the eyes of your particular heart into the result for you all to know what is the expectation of His particular call, what is the wealth of the opinion of His particular allotment in the holy ones,

19 and what is the hyper-casting greatness of His particular power into us, the ones who are trusting according to the working of the might of His particular force.

20 Which He inwardly-worked in the Christ when He raised Him out from dead ones and when He seated in right of Him in the heavenlies,

21 far-above all beginning and authority and power and lordship and of every name when being named not only in this particular age, but also in the one which is about to be;

22 and arranged all things under His particular feet and gives Him to be Head over all things to the called-out-assembly,

23 which is His particular body, the fullness of the One Who is filling for Himself, the all things in all things.
