Ephesians 3:1 For this cause I Paul [am] a prisoner of Iesus Christe, for you heathen: Ephesians 3:2 Yf ye haue hearde of the dispensatio of the grace of God, which is geuen me to youwarde:
Made known to Paul by revelation:
Ephesians 3:3 For by reuelation shewed he the misterie vnto me (as I wrote afore in fewe wordes: Ephesians 3:4 Whereby, when ye reade, ye may vnderstande my knowledge in the misterie of Christe)
was the hidden mystery,
Ephesians 3:5 Which [misterie] in other ages was not opened vnto the sonnes of men, as it is nowe reuealed vnto his holy apostles and prophetes by the spirite,
that the Gentiles should be saved,
Ephesians 3:6 That the gentiles shoulde be inheritours also, and of the same body, and partakers of his promise in Christe, by the Gospell: Ephesians 3:7 Wherof I am made a minister, accordyng to the gyfte of the grace of God, which is geuen vnto me after the workyng of his power.
and to him was that grace given,
Ephesians 3:8 Unto me the least of all saintes is this grace geuen, that I shoulde preache among the gentiles the vnsearchable ryches of Christe,
that he should preach it.
Ephesians 3:9 And to bring to lyght to all men what the felowship of the misterie is whiche from the begynnyng of the world hath ben hid in god, which made all thinges through Iesus Christe: Ephesians 3:10 To thintent that nowe vnto the rulers and power in heauenly [thynges] myght be knowen by ye Church, the very manyfolde wysedome of God: Ephesians 3:11 According to ye eternall purpose which he wrought in Christe Iesus our Lord: Ephesians 3:12 By who we haue boldnesse & entraunce in ye confidence which is by faith of him.
He desireth them not to faint for his tribulation,
Ephesians 3:13 Wherfore I desire that ye faynt not in my tribulations for you, whiche is your glorie.
Ephesians 3:14 For this cause I bowe my knees vnto the father of our Lorde Iesus Christe, Ephesians 3:15 Of who all the famyly in heauen and earth is named: Ephesians 3:16 That he would graunt you, according to the rychesse of his glorie, to be strengthed with myght by his spirite in the inner man. Ephesians 3:17 That Christe may dwell in your heartes by fayth: that ye beyng rooted and grounded in loue, Ephesians 3:18 Myght be able to comprehende with al saintes, what is the breadth, & length, and deapth, and heygth:
that they may perceive the great love of Christ toward them.
Ephesians 3:19 And to knowe the loue of Christe, whiche excelleth knowledge, that ye might be fylled with all fulnesse of God. Ephesians 3:20 Unto him that is able to do exceeding aboundauntly aboue all that we aske or thynke, accordyng to the power that worketh in vs, Ephesians 3:21 Be prayse in the Churche by Christe Iesus, throughout all ages, worlde without ende. Amen.
