Ephesians 1

[1] [2] [3] [4] [5] [6]

1:1 Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, to the saints who are at Ephesus, and to the faithful in Christ Jesus:

1:2 Grace be to you, and peace from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ.

1:3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ:

1:4 According as he hath chosen us in him, before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love:

1:5 Having predestinated us to the adoption of children to himself by Jesus Christ, according to the good pleasure of his will,

1:6 To the praise of the glory of his grace, in which he hath made us accepted in the beloved:

1:7 In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace;

1:8 In which he hath abounded towards us in all wisdom and prudence;

1:9 Having made known to us the mystery of his will, according to his good pleasure which he hath purposed in himself:

1:10 That in the dispensation of the fullness of times he might collect in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth; even in him:

1:11 In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of him who worketh all things after the counsel of his own will:

1:12 That we should be to the praise of his glory, who first trusted in Christ.

1:13 In whom ye also trusted, after ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise,

1:14 Which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, to the praise of his glory.

1:15 Wherefore I also, having heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus, and love to all the saints,

1:16 Cease not to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers;

1:17 That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him:

1:18 The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints,

1:19 And what is the exceeding greatness of his power toward us who believe, according to the working of his mighty power,

1:20 Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places,

1:21 Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come:

1:22 And put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church,

1:23 Which is his body, the fullness of him that filleth all in all.
