After the salutation,
Ephesians 1:1 Paule an Apostle of Iesu Christe by the wyll of God. To þe Saynctes whiche are at Ephesus, & to them whiche beleue on Iesus Christe. Ephesians 1:2 Grace be wyth you, and peace from God oure father, and from the Lorde Iesus Christe.
and thanksgiving for the Ephesians,
Ephesians 1:3 Blessed be God the father of oure Lorde Iesus Christe, which hath blessed vs wyth all maner of spyrytuall blessynges in heauenlye thynges by Christe,
he treateth of our election,
Ephesians 1:4 accordynge as he had chosen vs in hym, before the foundacyon of the worlde was layde that we shoulde be Saynctes and wythoute blame before hym thorow loue. Ephesians 1:5 And ordeyned vs before thorowe Iesus Christe to be heyres vnto hym selfe, according to the pleasure of hys wyll,
and adoption by grace,
Ephesians 1:6 to the prayse of þe glory of hys grace, wherewith he hath made vs accepted in the beloued. Ephesians 1:7 By whome we haue redemption thorowe hys bloude, euen the forgeuenes of synnes accordyng to the ryches of hys grace Ephesians 1:8 he shedde on vs aboundauntlye in all wysdome & perseueraunce. Ephesians 1:9 And hath opened vnto vs the misterye of hys wyll accordyng to hys pleasure and purposed the same in hym selfe Ephesians 1:10 to haue it declared, when the tyme were full come, þt all thynges, bothe the thynges whiche are in heauen, & also thynges whiche are in earth shoulde be gathered together euen in Christ:
which is the true and proper fountain of man's salvation.
Ephesians 1:11 that is to saye in hym in whome we are made heyres, and were thereto predestinate accordynge to the purpose of hym which worketh all thynges after the purpose of hys owne wyll, Ephesians 1:12 that we whiche before beleued in Christ shoulde be vnto the prayse of hys glorye.
And because the height of this mystery cannot easily be attained unto,
Ephesians 1:13 In whome also ye (after that ye hearde the worde of trueth. I meane the Gospel of your saluacyon, wherein ye beleued) were sealed with the holye spiryte of promes, Ephesians 1:14 whiche is þe ernest of oure inheritaunce, to redeme the purchased possessyon, and that vnto the lande of hys glorye. Ephesians 1:15 Wherfore euen I (after that I hearde of the faythe whiche ye haue in the Lorde Iesu, and loue vnto all the saynctes)
he prayeth that they may come
Ephesians 1:16 cease not to geue thankes for you: makyng mencyon of you in my prayers, Ephesians 1:17 that the God of oure Lord Iesus Christ, and the father of glorye myghte geue vnto you the spyryte of wysdome, and open to you the knoweledge of hym selfe,
to the full knowledge,
Ephesians 1:18 and lyghten the eyes of youre myndes that ye myght knowe what that hope is, where vnto he hath called you, and what the ryches of hys gloryous inheritaunce is vpon the saynctes, Ephesians 1:19 and what is the excedynge greatnes of hys power to vs warde, whiche beleue accordynge to the workynge of that hys myghtye power,
and possession thereof in Christ.
Ephesians 1:20 whiche he wrought in Christe, when he raysed hym from the dead, and set hym on hys ryght hande in heauenly thynges, Ephesians 1:21 aboue all rule, power, and myghte, and domynyon, and aboue all names that are named, not in thys worlde onely, but also in the worlde to come, Ephesians 1:22 and hath put all thynges, vnder hys fete, and hath made hym aboue all thynges the heade of the congregacyon, Ephesians 1:23 which is hys bodye, and the fulnes of hym that fylleth all in all thynges.
