Made Alive in Christ1 And you ▼
▼ Lit beingwere b dead ▼
▼ Or by reason ofin your trespasses and sins, 2 in which you d formerly walked according to the ▼
▼ Lit agecourse of f this world, according to g the prince of the power of the air, of the spirit that is now working in h the sons of disobedience. 3 Among them we too all i formerly lived in j the lusts of our flesh ▼
▼ Lit doingindulging the desires of the flesh and of the ▼
▼ Lit thoughtsmind, and were m by nature n children of wrath o even as the rest. 4 But God, being p rich in mercy, because of q His great love with which He loved us, 5 even when we were r dead ▼
▼ Or by reason ofin our transgressions, made us alive together ▼
▼ Two early mss read in Christwith Christ ( u by grace you have been saved), 6 and v raised us up with Him, and w seated us with Him in x the heavenly places in y Christ Jesus, 7 so that in the ages to come He might show the surpassing z riches of His grace in aa kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. 8 For ab by grace you have been saved ac through faith; and ▼
▼ I.e. that salvationthat not of yourselves, it is ae the gift of God; 9 af not as a result of works, so that ag no one may boast. 10 For we are His workmanship ah created in ai Christ Jesus for aj good works, which God ak prepared beforehand so that we would al walk in them. 11 Therefore remember that am formerly an you, the Gentiles in the flesh, who are called ao “Uncircumcision” by the so-called ap “Circumcision,” which is performed in the flesh by human hands— 12 remember that you were at that time separate from Christ ▼
▼ Or alienated, ar excluded from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers to as the covenants of promise, having at no hope and au without God in the world. 13 But now in av Christ Jesus you who aw formerly were ax far off ▼
▼ Lit became; or were madehave az been brought near ▼
▼ Or in, bb by the blood of Christ. 14 For He Himself is bc our peace bd who made both groups into one and broke down the ▼
▼ Lit the dividing wall of the barrierbarrier of the dividing wall, 15 ▼
▼ Or the enmity, by abolishing in His flesh the Lawby bg abolishing in His flesh the enmity, which is bh the Law of commandments contained in ordinances, so that in Himself He might ▼
▼ Lit create, bj make the two into bk one new man, thus establishing bl peace, 16 and might bm reconcile them both in bn one body to God through the cross, ▼
▼ Or in Himselfby it having bp put to death the enmity. 17 And bq He came and preached br peace to you who were bs far away, and peace to those who were bt near; 18 for through Him we both have bu our access in bv one Spirit to bw the Father. 19 So then you are no longer bx strangers and aliens, but you are by fellow citizens with the ▼
▼ Or holy onessaints, and are of ca God’s household, 20 having been cb built on cc the foundation of cd the apostles and prophets, ce Christ Jesus Himself being the cf corner stone, 21 cg in whom the whole building, being fitted together, is growing into ch a holy ▼
▼ Or sanctuarytemple in the Lord, 22 in whom you also are being cj built together into a ck dwelling of God in the Spirit.
