Thomson(i) 1 Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ, by the will of God, to the saints; to them who are at Ephesus and faithful in Christ Jesus: 2 Favour be 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 hath blessed us with every spiritual blessing; with the heavenly things in Christ; 4 as he chose us in him before the5 foundation of the world, that we might be holy and blameless before him in love; 5 having before hand determinately pointed us out for an adoption into the number of children by Jesus Christ for himself, according to the good pleasure of his will; 6 for the praise of the glory of that favour of his with which he made us objects of favour in the Beloved; 7 by whom we have this redemption by his blood; the forgiveness of our sins according to the richness of his grace 8 in which he hath abounded for us 9 having with all wisdom and care made known to us this secret of his will, according to that good pleasure of his, which he previously purposed in himself, 10 for the dispensation of the fulness of times, to bring all things again under one head in Christ, both those in heaven and those on earth"even in him, 11 by whom we, [having been previously marked out in a determinate manner, according to the purpose of him who effecteth all things according to the counsel of his will] were made his inheritance, 12 to the end that we who first trusted in the Christ might be for the praise of his glory; 13 and by whom you also, when you heard the word of this truth, the glad tidings of this salvation of yours"by whom you indeed, when you believed, were sealed with the spirit of the promise 14 [that holy [spirit which is an earnest of the inheritance of us"for the complete redemption of the purchase] for the praise of his glory. 15 For this cause, having heard of the faith which you have in the Lord Jesus, and of your love for all the saints, 16 I do not cease to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers, 17 that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of the glory, would give you a spirit of wisdom and revelation in the acknowledgment of him 18 that He would enlighten the eyes of your understanding, that you may see what the hope of this invitation of his is; and what the riches of the glory of this inheritance of his, in the saints; 19 and what the exceeding greatness of this power of his for us who believe, corresponding to the energy of the strength of that power 20 of his which he exerted in the Christ: Having raised Him from the dead, he set him at his right hand, in the heavenly kingdom, 21 far above all principality and power, and might, and dominion, and every name which is named, not only in this age but in that to come; 22 and put all things under his feet, and constituted him head over all for the congregation, 23 which is his body; the fulness of him who filleth all in all.
