Ephesians 3:14-21

AUV(i) 14 This is the reason that I bow my knees [in prayer] to the Father, 15 from whom every family in heaven and on earth receives its name. [Note: Here Paul resumes the prayer he began in verse 1]. 16 [I pray] that, according to God’s glorious abundance, He would empower you to become [spiritually] strong through His Holy Spirit in your inner person, 17 so that Christ will live in your hearts through faith. [I pray] that you will be rooted and grounded in [your] love, 18 so that you, along with all the saints [i.e., God’s holy people], will be [spiritually] strong enough to grasp how wide and long and high and deep [Christ’s love is]; 19 and to know that His love for us surpasses [our] knowledge, so that you people will be completely filled with the fullness of God. 20 May there be to God, who is able to do infinitely more [for us] than we could [even] ask or think, according to [His] power at work in us --- 21 [I say] may there be praise to God in the church and in [or, “for”] Christ Jesus throughout all generations of people for ages and ages. May it be so.

NSB(i) 14 For this cause I bow my knees to the Father. 15 Every family in heaven and on earth obtains its name from him. 16 That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, that you may be strengthened with power through his Spirit in the inward man. 17 May Christ dwell in your hearts through faith to the end that you will be rooted and grounded in love. 18 May you be able to comprehend with all the holy ones the breadth and length and height and depth. 19 And may you know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge. May you be filled with all the fullness of God. 20 Now to him that is able to do far more abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us. 21 Glory be to him in the congregation and in Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.
