Matthew(i) 1 For this cause I Paule am in the bondes of Iesu Christ for your sakes, whiche are heathen. 2 Yf ye haue hearde of the ministration of the grace of God, whiche is geuen me to youward. 3 For by reuelation shewed he this misterie to me as I wrote aboue in fewe wordes, 4 wherby when ye reade, ye maye knowe myne vnderstandinge in the misterye of Christe. 5 Which mysterye in tymes passed was not opened to the sonnes of men, as it is now declared vnto his holye Apostles and Prophetes by the spyrite 6 that the Gentyles shoulde be inheritours also, and of the same bodye, and partakers of hys promes that is in Christe, by the meanes of the Gospell, 7 wherof I am made a mynyster, by the gyfte of the grace of God geuen vnto me thorowe the workynge of hys power. 8 Vnto me the leaste of all sainctes is this grace geuen, that I shoulde preache amonge the Gentyls the vnsearcheable ryches of Christe, 9 and to make all men se what the fellowshyp of the mysterye is, whiche from the beginninge of the worlde hath bene hyde in God, whiche made all thinges thorowe Iesus Christ, 10 to the entente, that nowe vnto the rulers & powers in heauen myght be knowen (by the congregation) the manifolde wysedome of God, 11 accordinge to the eternal purpose, whiche he purposed in Christe Iesu our Lorde, 12 by whom we are bold to drawe nighe in that truste, whyche we haue by fayth on on him. 13 Wherfore I desyre that ye faynte not because of my tribulations for your sakes, whiche is your prayse. 14 For this cause I bowe my knees vnto the father of oure Lorde Iesus Christ, 15 whiche is father ouer all that is called father, in heauen and in earth, 16 that he woulde graunt you accordinge to the ryches of his glorie, that ye maye be strengthed wyth mighte by his spirite in the inner man, 17 that Christ may dwell in your hertes by fayth, that ye beinge roted and grounded in loue, 18 might be able to comprehende wyth all sainctes, what is the bread and length, deapt and height: 19 and to knowe, what is the loue of Christe, whyche loue passeth knowledge, that ye myghte be fulfylled wyth all maner of fulnes, whiche cometh of God. 20 Vnto hym that is able to do excedinge aboundantly aboue all that we are or thinke, accordinge to the power that worketh in vs, 21 be prayse in the congregation by Iesus Christe, thorowout al generacions, from time to time. Amen.
