Ephesians 3

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

Ephesians 3:2  
if it is so that you have heard of the administration of that grace of God which was given me toward you,

Ephesians 3:3  
how that by revelation the mystery was made known to me, as I wrote before in few words,

Ephesians 3:4  
by which, when you read, you can perceive my understanding in the mystery of Christ,

Ephesians 3:5  
which in other generations was not made known to the children of men, as it has now been revealed to his holy apostles and prophets in the Spirit,

Ephesians 3:6  
that the Gentiles are fellow heirs and fellow members of the body, and fellow partakers of his promise in Christ Jesus through the Good News,

Ephesians 3:7  
of which I was made a servant according to the gift of that grace of God which was given me according to the working of his power.

Ephesians 3:8  
To me, the very least of all saints, was this grace given, to preach to the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ,

Ephesians 3:9  
and to make all men see what is the administration of the mystery which for ages has been hidden in God, who created all things through Jesus Christ,

Ephesians 3:10  
to the intent that now through the assembly the manifold wisdom of God might be made known to the principalities and the powers in the heavenly places,

Ephesians 3:11  
according to the eternal purpose which he accomplished in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Ephesians 3:12  
In him we have boldness and access in confidence through our faith in him.

Ephesians 3:13  
Therefore I ask that you may not lose heart at my troubles for you, which are your glory.

Ephesians 3:14  
For this cause, I bow my knees to the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,

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

Ephesians 3:16  
that he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, that you may be strengthened with power through his Spirit in the inner person,

Ephesians 3:17  
that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith, to the end that you, being rooted and grounded in love,

Ephesians 3:18  
may be strengthened to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and height and depth,

Ephesians 3:19  
and to know Christ’s love which surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.

Ephesians 3:20  
Now to him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us,

Ephesians 3:21  
to him be the glory in the assembly and in Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.
