Ephesians 3
Literal Emphasis Translation Par ▾ 
1For this reason, I, Paul, the prisoner of Christ Jesus for you ethnicities, 2If, indeed, you have heard of the stewardship (administration, latin-dispensationem, household management) of the grace of God having been given to me unto you, 3That according to revelation He made known to me the mystery, just as I have written before in brief, 4By which you are able reading it, to understand the insight of me in the mystery of Christ, 5Which in other generations was not made known to the sons of men, as now it has been revealed to His holy apostles and prophets in the Spirit. 6That the ethnicities should be joint-heirs and joint-body and joint-partakers of the promise in Christ Jesus through the gospel, 7Of which I became a minister (diakonos) according to the gift of the grace of God, having been given to me according to the working of His power. 8To me the very least of all saints was given this grace to preach to the ethnicities the incomprehensible (untraceable, unsearchable) riches of Christ, 9And to enlighten all to what is the stewardship (administration, household management, latin-dispensatio) of the mystery having been hidden from the ages in God who has created all, 10So that it might be known now to the preeminent and the authorities in the heavenlies through the church, the manifold (much varied, ultra-diverse, latin-multiformis) wisdom of God, 11According to the purpose (predetermination) of the ages which He accomplished in Christ Jesus our Lord, 12In whom we have boldness and access in confidence through the faith of (in) Him. 13Therefore, I implore you not to be weary in my tribulations for you which is your glory.

14For this reason I bow my knees to the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, 15From out of whom every family in the heavens and upon the earth in named, 16So that He might give you according to the riches of His glory to be strengthened with power through His Spirit unto (into) the inner man, 17That Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith, being rooted and being founded in love, 18So that you may be fully able to comprehend (lay hold of, seize, take hold of exactly with decisive initiative) with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, 19To know the love of Christ surpassing knowledge, so that you may be filled unto all the fullness of God.

20Now to Him being able to do exceedingly above all that we ask or think according to the power working in us, 21To Him be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus unto all the generations of the age of the ages. Amen.
