Ephesians 3:1 For this cause, I Paul, the prisoner of Christ Jesus for you the nations, Ephesians 3:2 if, indeed, ye did hear of the dispensation of the grace of God that was given to me in regard to you,
Made known to Paul by revelation:
Ephesians 3:3 that by revelation He made known to me the secret, according as I wrote before in few [words] Ephesians 3:4 in regard to which ye are able, reading [it], to understand my knowledge in the secret of the Christ,
was the hidden mystery,
Ephesians 3:5 which in other generations was not made known to the sons of men, as it was now revealed to His holy apostles and prophets in the Spirit
that the Gentiles should be saved,
Ephesians 3:6 that the nations be fellow-heirs, and of the same body, and partakers of His promise in the Christ, through the good news, Ephesians 3:7 of which I became a ministrant, according to the gift of the grace of God that was given to me, according to the working of His power;
and to him was that grace given,
Ephesians 3:8 to methe less than the least of all the saintswas given this grace, among the nations to proclaim good newsthe untraceable riches of the Christ,
that he should preach it.
Ephesians 3:9 and to cause all to see what [is] the fellowship of the secret that hath been hid from the ages in God, who the all things did create by Jesus Christ, Ephesians 3:10 that there might be made known now to the principalities and the authorities in the heavenly [places], through the assembly, the manifold wisdom of God, Ephesians 3:11 according to a purpose of the ages, which He made in Christ Jesus our Lord, Ephesians 3:12 in whom we have the freedom and the access in confidence through the faith of him,
He desireth them not to faint for his tribulation,
Ephesians 3:13 wherefore, I ask [you] not to faint in my tribulations for you, which is your glory.
Ephesians 3:14 For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, Ephesians 3:15 of whom the whole family in the heavens and on earth is named, Ephesians 3:16 that He may give to you, according to the riches of His glory, with might to be strengthened through His Spirit, in regard to the inner man, Ephesians 3:17 that the Christ may dwell through the faith in your hearts, in love having been rooted and founded, Ephesians 3:18 that ye may be in strength to comprehend, with all the saints, what [is] the breadth, and length, and depth, and height,
that they may perceive the great love of Christ toward them.
Ephesians 3:19 to know also the love of the Christ that is exceeding the knowledge, that ye may be filledto all the fulness of God; Ephesians 3:20 and to Him who is able above all things to do exceeding abundantly what we ask or think, according to the power that is working in us, Ephesians 3:21 to Him [is] the glory in the assembly in Christ Jesus, to all the generations of the age of the ages. Amen.
