Lamsa Bible Par ▾ 
1PAUL, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, to those who are in Eph'e-sus, saints and believers in Jesus Christ: 2Peace be with you and grace from God our Father, and from our LORD Jesus Christ:

3Blessed be the God, and Father of our LORD Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heaven through Christ: 4Just as from the beginning he has chosen us through him, before the foundation of the world, that we may become holy and without blemish before him. 5And he marked us with his love to be his from the beginning, and adopted us to be sons through Jesus Christ, as it pleased his will. 6To the praise of the glory of his grace that he has poured upon us by his beloved one. 7In him we have salvation, and in his blood, forgiveness of sins, according to the richness of his grace; 8That that grace which has abounded in us, in all wisdom and spiritual understanding; 9And because he has made known to us the mystery of his will, as he has ordained from the very beginning, to work through it; 10As a dispensation of the fulness of times, that all things might be made new in heaven and on earth through Christ: 11By whom we have been chosen, as he had marked us from the beginning so he wanted to carry out everything according to the good judgment of his will: 12That we should become the first to trust in Christ, to his honor and his glory: 13In whom, you also have heard the word of truth, which is the gospel for your salvation: in him you have believed, so you are sealed with the Holy Spirit that was promised, 14Which is the pledge of our inheritance, for the salvation of those who are saved, and for the glory of his honour.

15Wherefore I also, since I heard of your faith in our LORD Jesus Christ, and your love toward all the saints, 16Never cease to give thanks for your sakes and to mention you in my prayers; 17So that the God of our LORD Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him: 18And so that the eyes of your understanding may be enlightened; that you may know what is the hope of his calling, and what are the glorious riches of his inheritance in the saints; 19And what is the exceeding greatness of his power in us as the result of the things we believe, according to the skill of his mighty power, 20Which he wrought through Christ, when he raised him from the dead and set him at his own right hand in heaven, 21Far above all angels and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world but also in the world which is to come: 22And has put all things under his feet, and made him, who is above all things, the head of the church, 23Which is his body, and confirmation of him who fulfills all things and every thing.
