Ephesians 3

On this account, I Paul am a prisoner of Jesus the Messiah, for the sake of you Gentiles: if so be, ye have heard of the dispensation of the grace of God, which was given to me among you: that by revelation there was made known to me the mystery, (as I have now written to you in brief, so that while ye read, ye might be able to understand my knowledge of the mystery of the Messiah,) which in other generations was not made known to the sons of men, as it is now revealed to his holy legates and to his prophets, by the Spirit; that the Gentiles should be sharers. of his inheritance, and partakers of his body, and of the promise which is given in him by the gospel; of which I have been a minister, according to the gift of the goodness of God, which was imparted to me by the operation of his power: to me, who am the least of all the saints, hath this grace been given, that I should announce among the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of the Messiah, and should show to all men what is the dispensation of the mystery, which for ages was hid up in God the Creator of all things: 10 so that, by means of the church, the manifold wisdom of God might become known to the principalities and powers that are in heaven: 11 which wisdom he arranged ages before, and he hath executed it by Jesus the Messiah our Lord; 12 through whom we have boldness and access, in the confidence of his faith. 13 Therefore I pray, that I may not be discouraged by my afflictions, which are for your sakes; for this is your glory. 14 And I bow my knees to the Father of our Lord Jesus the Messiah, 15 from whom the whole family in heaven and on earth is named; 16 that he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit; that in your inner man 17 the Messiah may dwell by faith, and in your hearts by love, while your root and your foundation waxeth strong; 18 and that ye may be able to explore, with all the saints, what is the height and depth, and length and breadth, 19 and may know the greatness of the Messiah's love; and that ye may be filled with all the fullness of God. 20 Now to him who is able, by his almighty power, to do for us even more than we ask or think, according to his power that worketh in us; 21 to him be glory, in his church, by Jesus the Messiah, in all generations, for ever and ever. Amen.
