ALT(i) 1 Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by [the] will of God, to the holy ones [or, saints, and throughout epistle], the [ones] being in Ephesus and faithful in Christ Jesus: 2 Grace to youp and peace from God our Father and [the] Lord Jesus Christ! 3 Blessed [be] [or, Worthy of praise [is]] the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the One having blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenlies [or, heavenly [realms]] in Christ, 4 just as He chose us in Him before [the] laying of the foundation of the world [or, before beginning of the creation of the universe], so that we shall be holy and unblemished [fig., without fault] before Him, in love, 5 having predestined us to [the] adoption [or, the formal and legal declaration that we are His children] by means of Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will, 6 to [the] praise of the glory [or, splendor] of His grace [or, of His glorious grace], by which He bestowed grace upon [or, showed kindness to] us in the Beloved, 7 in whom we have the redemption by means of His blood, the forgiveness of transgressions, according to the riches [fig., abundance] of His grace, 8 which He made to abound toward [or, lavished on] us in all wisdom and insight [or, intelligence], 9 having disclosed to us the secret [or, mystery, and throughout book] of His will, according to His good pleasure which He Himself purposed [or, planned] in Him, 10 with respect to the administration of the fullness [or, completion] of the times, to gather together [or, to unify] all [things] in Christ, the [things] in the heavens and the things on the earth, 11 in Him in whom also we were appointed by lot [or, obtained an inheritance], having been predestined according to the purpose [or, plan] of the One supernaturally working all [things] according to the counsel [or, intention] of His will, 12 for us to be to [the] praise of His glory, the ones having been the first to hope in Christ, 13 in whom youp also, having heard the word of the truth, the Gospel of yourp salvation, in whom also having believed [or, having trusted], youp were sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise, 14 who is [the] down payment [or, guarantee] of our inheritance, with respect to the redemption of His acquired possession, to the praise of His glory! 15 For this reason, I also, having heard of the faith of each of youp in the Lord Jesus and yourp love for all the holy ones, 16 do not cease from giving thanks for youp, making mention of youp in my prayers, 17 so that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory [or, splendor], shall give to youp a spirit of wisdom and revelation in the full [or, true] knowledge of Him, 18 the eyes of yourp heart having been enlightened, for youp to know what is the hope [or, confident expectation] of His calling and what [are] the riches [or, abundance] of the glory [or, splendor] of His inheritance in the holy ones 19 and what [is] the surpassing greatness of His power to us, the ones believing, according to the supernatural working of the might of His strength, 20 which He supernaturally worked in Christ, having raised Him from the dead and set [Him] at His right hand in the heavenlies [or, heavenly [realms]], 21 far above all rule and authority and power and lordship [or, dominion] and every name having been named, not only in this age, but also in the one coming. 22 And He put all things in subjection under His feet and gave Him [to be] head over all [things pertaining] to the Assembly [or, Church, and throughout epistle], 23 which is His body, the fullness of the One filling all in all.
