Book 49 Ephesians 001:001 Paul, an Apostle of Christ Jesus by the will of God: To God's people who are in Ephesus believers in Christ Jesus. 001:002 May grace and peace be granted to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. 001:003 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has crowned us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realms in Christ; 001:004 even as, in His love, He chose us as His own in Christ before the creation of the world, that we might be holy and without blemish in His presence. 001:005 For He pre destined us to be adopted by Himself as sons through Jesus Christ such being His gracious will and pleasure 001:006 to the praise of the splendour of His grace with which He has enriched us in the beloved One. 001:007 It is in Him, and through the shedding of His blood, that we have our deliverance the forgiveness of our offences so abundant was God's grace, 001:008 the grace which He, the possessor of all wisdom and understanding, lavished upon us, 001:009 when He made known to us the secret of His will. And this is in harmony with God's merciful purpose 001:010 for the government of the world when the times are ripe for it the purpose which He has cherished in His own mind of restoring the whole creation to find its one Head in Christ; yes, things in Heaven and things on earth, to find their one Head in Him. 001:011 In Him we Jews have been made heirs, having been chosen beforehand in accordance with the intention of Him whose might carries out in everything the design of His own will, 001:012 so that we should be devoted to the extolling of His glorious attributes we who were the first to fix our hopes on Christ. 001:013 And in Him you Gentiles also, after listening to the Message of the truth, the Good News of your salvation having believed in Him were sealed with the promised Holy Spirit; 001:014 that Spirit being a pledge and foretaste of our inheritance, in anticipation of its full redemption the inheritance which He has purchased to be specially His for the extolling of His glory. 001:015 For this reason I too, having heard of the faith in the Lord Jesus which prevails among you, and of your love for all God's people, 001:016 offer never ceasing thanks on your behalf while I make mention of you in my prayers. 001:017 For I always beseech the God of our Lord Jesus Christ the Father most glorious to give you a spirit of wisdom and penetration through an intimate knowledge of Him, 001:018 the eyes of your understanding being enlightened so that you may know what is the hope which His call to you inspires, what the wealth of the glory of His inheritance in God's people, 001:019 and what the transcendent greatness of His power in us believers as seen in the working of His infinite might 001:020 when He displayed it in Christ by raising Him from the dead and seating Him at His own right hand in the heavenly realms, 001:021 high above all other government and authority and power and dominion, and every title of sovereignty used either in this Age or in the Age to come. 001:022 God has put all things under His feet, and has appointed Him universal and supreme Head of the Church, which is His Body, 001:023 the completeness of Him who everywhere fills the universe with Himself. 002:001 To you Gentiles also, who were dead through your offences and sins, 002:002 which were once habitual to you while you walked in the ways of this world and obeyed the Prince of the powers of the air, the spirits that are now at work in the hearts of the sons of disobedience to you God has given Life. 002:003 Among them all of us also formerly passed our lives, governed by the inclinations of our lower natures, indulging the cravings of those natures and of our own thoughts, and were in our original state deserving of anger like all others...
