CLV(i) 1 Paul, an apostle of Christ Jesus through the will of God, to all the saints who are also believers in Christ Jesus:" 2 Grace to you and peace from God, our Father, and the Lord Jesus Christ." 3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, Who blesses us with every spiritual blessing among the celestials, in Christ, 4 according as He chooses us in Him before the disruption of the world, we to be holy and flawless in His sight, 5 in love designating us beforehand for the place of a son for Him through Christ Jesus; in accord with the delight of His will, 6 for the laud of the glory of His grace, which graces us in the Beloved:" 7 in Whom we are having the deliverance through His blood, the forgiveness of offenses in accord with the riches of His grace, 8 which He lavishes on us; in all wisdom and prudence 9 making known to us the secret of His will (in accord with His delight, which He purposed in Him)" 10 to have an administration of the complement of the eras, to head up all in the Christ - both that in the heavens and that on the earth" 11 in Him in Whom our lot was cast also, being designated beforehand according to the purpose of the One Who is operating all in accord with the counsel of His will, 12 that we should be for the laud of His glory, who are pre-expectant in the Christ." 13 In Whom you also - on hearing the word of truth, the evangel of your salvation - in Whom on believing also, you are sealed with the holy spirit of promise" 14 (which is an earnest of the enjoyment of our allotment, to the deliverance of that which has been procured) for the laud of His glory!" 15 Therefore, I also, on hearing of this faith of yours in the Lord Jesus, and that for all the saints, 16 do not cease giving thanks for you, making mention in my prayers" 17 that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may be giving you a spirit of wisdom and revelation in the realization of Him, 18 the eyes of your heart having been enlightened, for you to perceive what is the expectation of His calling, and what the riches of the glory of the enjoyment of His allotment among the saints, 19 and what the transcendent greatness of His power for us who are believing, in accord with the operation of the might of His strength, 20 which is operative in the Christ, rousing Him from among the dead and seating Him at His right hand among the celestials, 21 up over every sovereignty and authority and power and lordship, and every name that is named, not only in this eon, but also in that which is impending:" 22 and subjects all under His feet, and gives Him, as Head over all, to the ecclesia" 23 which is His body, the complement of the One completing the all in all."
