Ephesians 2
Smith's Literal Translation Par ▾ 

Alive with Christ
(Colossians 2:6–23)

1And ye being dead in faults and in sins; 2In which when ye walked according to the life of this world, according to the ruler of the power of the air, of the spirit now energetic in the sons of disobedience: 3Among whom also we then all occupied ourselves in the eager desire? of our flesh, doing the wills of the flesh and the thoughts; and were by nature children of wrath, as also the rest. 4But God, being rich in mercy, by his much love which he loved us, 5And we being dead in faults, he made alive together with Christ, (by grace are ye saved;) 6And raised together, and seated together in heavenlies in Christ Jesus: 7That he might show in times coming the surpassing riches of his grace in kindness to us in Christ Jesus. 8For by grace are ye saved through faith; and this not of you: the gift of God: 9Not of works, lest any one should boast. 10For we are his work, created in Christ Jesus to good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.

One in Christ
(Philippians 2:1–4)

11Wherefore remember, that ye then the nations in the flesh, being reckoned Uncircumcision by the Circumcision in the flesh reckoned made by hands; 12That ye were in that time without Christ alienated from the citizenship of Israel, and foreigners from the covenants of solemn promise, having no hope, and without God in the world: 13And now in Christ Jesus ye who then being far off have become near in the blood of Christ. 14For he is our peace, having made both one, and having loosed the middle partition wall of the enclosure; 15The enmity in his flesh, the law of commands in enactments, having left unemployed; that he might create in himself one new man, making peace; 16And that he might reconcile anew both in one body to God by the cross, having slain the enmity in it: 17And having come, he announced good news, peace to you afar off, and to those near. 18For by him we both have access in one Spirit to the Father.

Christ Our Cornerstone
(Isaiah 28:14–22; 1 Corinthians 3:10–15; 1 Peter 2:1–8)

19Wherefore then are ye no more foreigners and sojourners, but fellow citizens of the holy, and the household of God; 20Built upon the foundation of the sent, and of the prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the corner stone; 21In whom all the building fitted together increases into a holy temple in the Lord: 22In whom also ye are builded together for the dwelling of God in the Spirit.
