Ephesians 1


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.
