Ephesians 3
Literal Standard Version Par ▾ 
1For this cause, I Paul, the prisoner of Christ Jesus for you the nations, 2if, indeed, you heard of the dispensation of the grace of God that was given to me in regard to you, 3that by revelation He made known to me the secret, according as I wrote before in few [words]— 4in regard to which you are able, reading [it], to understand my knowledge in the secret of the Christ, 5which in other generations was not made known to the sons of men, as it was now revealed to His holy apostles and prophets in the Spirit— 6that the nations are fellow-heirs, and of the same body, and partakers of His promise in the Christ, through the good news, 7of which I became a servant, according to the gift of the grace of God that was given to me, according to the working of His power; 8to me—the less than the least of all the holy ones—was given this grace, among the nations to proclaim good news—the untraceable riches of the Christ, 9and to cause all to see what [is] the fellowship of the secret that has been hid from the ages in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ, 10that there might be made known now to the principalities and the authorities in the heavenly [places], through the Assembly, the manifold wisdom of God, 11according to a purpose of the ages, which He made in Christ Jesus our Lord, 12in whom we have the freedom and the access in confidence through the faith of Him, 13for this reason, I ask [you] not to faint in my tribulations for you, which is your glory.

14For this cause I bow my knees to the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, 15of whom the whole family in the heavens and on earth is named, 16that He may give to you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened through His Spirit with might, in regard to the inner man, 17that the Christ may dwell through the faith in your hearts, having been rooted and founded in love, 18that you may be in strength to comprehend, with all the holy ones, what [is] the breadth, and length, and depth, and height, 19to know also the love of the Christ that is exceeding the knowledge, that you may be filled—to all the fullness of God;

20and to Him who is able to do exceedingly [and] abundantly above all things that we ask or think, according to the power that is working in us, 21to Him [is] the glory in the Assembly in Christ Jesus, to all the generations of the age of the ages. Amen.
