Ephesians 1

1 Paul an apostle of Christ Jesus through the will of God, to the holy ones, the ones being in Ephesus, and faithful in Christ Jesus.

2 Grace to you all, and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the One having blessed us in all spiritual blessing in the heavenlies in Christ.

4 Just as He chose us in Him before a downcast of order, for us to be holy and blameless before Him in love.

5 Having pre-appointed us into the son-place through Jesus Christ into Himself, according to the satisfaction of His will,

6 into praise of the glory of His grace which He highly favored us in the One beloved.

7 In Whom we have the redemption through His blood, the release from the transgressions, according to the riches of His grace,

8 which He abounded into us in all wisdom and intelligence,

9 having made known to us the mystery of His will, according to His satisfaction, which He pre-positioned in Him,

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

11 In Whom also we were appointed by lots, having been pre-appointed according to the purpose of the One working all things according to the determination of His will,

12 into the purpose for us to be into the praise of His glory, the ones who have before hoped in Christ.

13 In Whom you also, having heard the word of the truth, the gospel of your salvation, in Whom also, having believed, you were sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise.

14 Who is a pledge of our inheritance, into the redemption of the possession, into the praise of His glory.

15 On account of this, I also, having heard of the faith according to you in the Lord Jesus and the love, the one into all the holy ones,

16 I do not stop giving thanks on behalf of you, making remembrance upon my prayers,

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

18 the eyes of your heart enlightened into the purpose for you to know what is the hope of His call, what is the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the holy ones,

19 and what is the surpassing greatness of His power into us, the ones believing according to the energy of the might of His force,

20 which He worked in Christ having raised Him out from dead ones and having seated Him in His right in the heavenlies,

21 far above all rule and authority and power and lordship and of every name being named, not only in this age, but also in the one coming.

22 And He arranged all things under His feet and gave Him to be Head above all things to the assembly,

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