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.
1 And you being dead ones by your trespasses and sins, 2 among whom you once walked according to the age of this world, according to the ruler of the authority of the air, of the spirit, the one now working in the sons of the disobedient one;
1 For this reason, I, Paul, the prisoner of Christ Jesus on behalf of you, the nations, 2 since, indeed you heard of the stewardship of the grace of God, of the one having been given to me into you,
1 Therefore, I myself, the prisoner in Lord, exhort you to walk worthily of the calling with which you were called, 2 with all humility and gentleness, with longsuffering, forbearing of one another in love,
1 Therefore, come to be imitators of God as beloved children, 2 and walk in love, just as also Christ loved us and gave Himself over on behalf of us, an offering and sacrifice to God into aroma of fragrance.
1 Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. 2 Honor your father and mother, which is the first commandment in a promise,
