Ephesians 1:1 Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, to the saints which are at Ephesus, and to the faithful in Christ Jesus: 2 Grace be to you, and peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ.
Spiritual Adoration in Christ.
3 Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has spoken well of us with all spiritual adoration in the sky above in Christ: 4 Just as He has chosen us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy without blame before Him in love, 5 having predestined us to adoption as sons through Jesus Christ to Himself according to the good pleasure of His will, 6 To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he has made us highly favoured in the beloved. 7 In whom we have redemption through his blood, the deliverance from sin, according to the riches of his grace; 8 in which He has abounded toward us in all wisdom and prudence; 9 Having made known to us the mystery of His will, according to His good pleasure which He purposed in Himself. 10 That in the administration of the fullness of times He might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in sky, and which are on earth in him: 11 In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestined according to the purpose of Him who works all things after the counsel of His own will: 12 that we should be to the praise of his glory, who first trusted in Christ. 13 In whom you also trusted, after you heard the word of truth, the good news of your deliverance: in whom also after you believed, you were sealed with that Holy Spirit of promise, 14 which is the guarantee of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory.
Thanksgiving and Prayer.
15 Therefore I also, after I heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus, and love unto all the saints, 16 Cease not to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers; 17 That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him: 18 The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that you may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints, 19 And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us who believe, according to the working of his mighty power, 20 Which he worked in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the sky above. 21 Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age, but also in that which is to come: 22 And has put all under his feet, and gave him, the head over all to the church, 23 which is his body, the fullness of him that fills all in all.
