BLB(i) 1 For reason of this, I Paul, the prisoner of Christ Jesus for you Gentiles... 2 Surely you have heard of the administration of God’s grace, having been given to me toward you, 3 that He made known to me the mystery by revelation, just as I have written before in brief, 4 which, by reading, you are able to understand my insight into the mystery of Christ, 5 which was not made known to the sons of men in other generations as now it has been revealed in the Spirit to His holy apostles and prophets, 6 that the Gentiles are joint-heirs, and a joint-body, and joint-partakers of the promise in Christ Jesus, through the gospel, 7 of which I became servant according to the gift of God’s grace, having been given to me according to the working of His power. 8 To me, the very least of all saints, was given this grace: to preach to the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ 9 and to enlighten all what is the administration of the mystery having been hidden from the ages in God, the One having created all things, 10 so that now through the church the manifold wisdom of God should be made known to the rulers and authorities in the heavenly realms, 11 according to the purpose of the ages, which He accomplished in Christ Jesus our Lord, 12 in whom we have boldness and access in confidence, by faith in Him. 13 Therefore I implore you not to lose heart at my tribulations for you, which is your glory. 14 ... for reason of this I bow my knees to the Father, 15 from whom every family in the heavens and on earth is named, 16 that He might give you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with power by His Spirit in the inner man, 17 for Christ to dwell in your hearts through faith, being rooted and being founded in love, 18 so that you may be fully able, with all the saints, to comprehend what is the breadth and length and height and depth, 19 and to know the love of Christ surpassing knowledge, so that you may be filled unto all the fullness of God. 20 Now to the One being able to do exceedingly above all things that we ask or think, according to the power working in us, 21 to Him be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all the generations of the age of the ages. Amen.
