Ephesians 2

1 And you being dead in your trespasses and sins, 2 in which you formerly walked according to the eternity of this world, according to the prince of the ability of the air, of the spirit now working in the sons of disobedience; 3 in whom you all also were formerly conducting yourselves in the lusts [of your] flesh, doing the wants of [your] body and [your] minds, and we were by nature children of wrath like the rest— 4 But God being rich in mercy, because of his great agape-love with which he agape-loved us, 5 and we being dead in trespasses, he co-made-[us]-alive in Christ—by grace are you saved—and co-raised [us] and co-set [us] in the heavenlies in Christ Jesus, 7 in order that he demonstrate in the coming eternities the surpassing wealth of his grace in [his] kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. 8 For by grace are you saved through faith, and this not from you, [it is] the gift of God, 9 not from works, lest anyone boast. 10 For we are his work, having been created in Christ Jesus for good works, for which God has before-prepared [us] in order that we walk in them. 11 Therefore be remembering that you formerly [being] the nations in the flesh, who are called uncircumcision by those being called circumcision, [which is] hand-made in the flesh, 12 that you were in that opportune-time1 () without Christ, being aliens from the citizenship of Israel and strangers of the contracts of the promise, not having hope, and godless in the world. 13 But now in Christ Jesus you who formerly were afar have become nearby in the blood of Christ. 14 For he is our peace, the [one] having made both [into] one [thing] and having broken down the dividing wall of partition [between us], the enmity, 15 in his flesh having nullified the law of the commandments [contained] in decrees, in order that he create those two in him into one new man, making peace, 16 and [in order that] he reconcile both into one body to God through the cross, having killed the enmity in him, 17 and having come, he good-newsed peace to you afar and peace to you nearby; 18 for through him we both have access in one spirit to the father. 19 Therefore you are no longer strangers and aliens, but you are co-citizens of the holy [ones] and members of the household of God, 20 having been built upon the foundation of the apostles and the prophets, the cornerstone being Christ Jesus, 21 in whom [the] entire building being fit together increases into [a] holy temple in [the] Lord, in whom you also are co-built to [a] dwelling place of God in [the] spirit.
