1:1

Greeting


1:1 Paul, an Apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, to the Saints which are at Ephesus, and to the faithful in Christ Jesus:

1:2 Grace be to you, and peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ.

The Sovereignty of the Father

1:3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, Who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ:

1:4 according as He hath chosen us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love:

1:5 having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will,

1:6 to the praise of the glory of His Grace, wherein He hath made us accepted in the beloved.

The administration of the Son

1:7 In Whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his Grace;

1:8 wherein He hath abounded toward us in all wisdom and prudence;

1:9 having made known unto us the mystery of His will, according to His good pleasure which He hath purposed in Himself:

1:10 that in the dispensation of the fulness of times He might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in Heaven, and which are on earth; even in Him:

1:11 in whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of Him who worketh all things after the counsel of His own will:

1:12 we should be to the praise of His glory, who first trusted in Christ.

The faithfulness of the Spirit

1:13 In Whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of Truth, the Gospel of your salvation: in Whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that Holy Spirit of promise,

1:14 Which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of His glory.

Prayer for revelation

1:15 Wherefore I also, after I heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus, and love unto all the Saints,

1:16 cease not to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers;

1:17 that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him:

1:18 the eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of His calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the Saints,

1:19 and what is the exceeding greatness of His power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of His mighty power,

1:20 which He wrought in Christ, when He raised him from the dead, and set Him at His own right hand in the heavenly places,

1:21 far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come:

1:22 And hath put all things under His feet, and gave Him to be the head over all things to the Church,
