Ephesians 3

Ephesians 3:1  
For this cause I Paul, the prisoner of Christ Jesus for you Gentiles,

Ephesians 3:2  
If that ordering of the grace of God has come to your knowledge, which was given to me for you,

Ephesians 3:3  
How by revelation the secret was made clear to me, as I said before in a short letter,

Ephesians 3:4  
By the reading of which you will be clear about my knowledge of the secret of Christ;

Ephesians 3:5  
Which in other generations was not given to the sons of men, but the revelation of it has now been made to his holy Apostles and prophets in the Spirit;

Ephesians 3:6  
Which is that the Gentiles have a part in the heritage, and in the same body, and in the same hope in Christ through the good news,

Ephesians 3:7  
Of which I was made a preacher, through that grace of God which was given to me in the measure of the working of his power.

Ephesians 3:8  
To me, who am less than the least of all the saints, was this grace given, so that I might make clear to the Gentiles the good news of the unending wealth of Christ:

Ephesians 3:9  
And make all men see what is the ordering of the secret which from the first has been kept in God who made all things;

Ephesians 3:10  
So that now to the rulers and the authorities in the heavens might be made clear through the church the wide-shining wisdom of God,

Ephesians 3:11  
Which is seen in his eternal purpose in Christ Jesus our Lord:

Ephesians 3:12  
By whom we come near to God without fear through faith in him.

Ephesians 3:13  
For this reason it is my prayer that you may not become feeble because of my troubles for you, which are your glory.

Ephesians 3:14  
For this cause I go down on my knees before the Father,

Ephesians 3:15  
From whom every family in heaven and on earth is named,

Ephesians 3:16  
That in the wealth of his glory he would make you strong with power through his Spirit in your hearts;

Ephesians 3:17  
So that Christ may have his place in your hearts through faith; and that you, being rooted and based in love,

Ephesians 3:18  
May have strength to see with all the saints how wide and long and high and deep it is,

Ephesians 3:19  
And to have knowledge of the love of Christ which is outside all knowledge, so that you may be made complete as God himself is complete.

Ephesians 3:20  
Now to him who is able to do in full measure more than all our desires or thoughts, through the power which is working in us,

Ephesians 3:21  
To him be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations for ever and ever. So be it.
