Chapter 2

1.1
You were made alive when you were dead in transgressions and sins, in which you once walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit who now works in the children of disobedience.
3.1
We also all once lived among them in the lusts of our flesh, doing the desires of the flesh and of the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, even as the rest.
4.1
But God, being rich in mercy, for his great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead through our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ
5.1
—by grace you have been saved—and raised us up with him,
6.1
and made us to sit with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, that in the ages to come he might show the exceeding riches of his grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus;
8.1
for by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, that no one would boast.
10.1
For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared before that we would walk in them.
11.1
Therefore remember that once you, the Gentiles in the flesh, who are called “uncircumcision” by that which is called “circumcision” (in the flesh, made by hands), that you were at that time separate from Christ, alienated from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of the promise, having no hope and without God in the world.
13.1
But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far off are made near in the blood of Christ.
14.1
For he is our peace, who made both one, and broke down the middle wall of separation, having abolished in his flesh the hostility, the law of commandments contained in ordinances,
15.1
that he might create in himself one new man of the two, making peace,

Chapter 2

1
You were made alive when you were dead in transgressions and sins,
You[G5210] were[G1510] made[G4160] alive[G2198] when[G2532] you[G5210] were[G1510] dead[G3498] in[G2532] transgressions[G3900] and[G2532] sins,[G3900]
2
in which you once walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit who now works in the children of disobedience.
in[G1722] which[G3739] you[G3739] once[G4218] walked[G4043] according[G2596] to[G2596] the[G1722] course[G1408] of[G5207] this[G3778] world,[G2889] according[G2596] to[G2596] the[G1722] prince[G758] of[G5207] the[G1722] power[G1849] of[G5207] the[G1722] air,[G3772] the[G1722] spirit[G4151] who[G3739] now[G3568] works[G1754] in[G1722] the[G1722] children[G5207] of[G5207] disobedience.[G543]
3
We also all once lived among them in the lusts of our flesh, doing the desires of the flesh and of the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, even as the rest.
We[G2249] also[G2532] all[G3956] once[G4218] lived[G1510] among[G1722] them[G3588] in[G1722] the[G1722] lusts[G1939] of[G2532] our[G2532] flesh,[G4561] doing[G4160] the[G1722] desires[G1939] of[G2532] the[G1722] flesh[G4561] and[G2532] of[G2532] the[G1722] mind,[G1271] and[G2532] were[G1510] by[G1722] nature[G5449] children[G5043] of[G2532] wrath,[G3709] even[G2532] as[G5613] the[G1722] rest.[G3062]
4
But God, being rich in mercy, for his great love with which he loved us,
But[G1161] God,[G2316] being[G1510] rich[G4145] in[G1722] mercy,[G1656] for[G1223] his[G1223] great[G4183] love[G26] with[G1722] which[G3739] he[G1161] loved[G25] us,[G2249]
5
even when we were dead through our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ—by grace you have been saved—
even[G2532] when[G2532] we[G2249] were[G1510] dead[G3498] through[G3900] our[G2532] trespasses,[G3900] made[G4982] us[G2249] alive[G4806] together[G4806] with[G2532] Christ[G5547] —by[G2532] grace[G5485] you[G1510] have[G2532] been[G1510] saved —[G4982]
6

and raised us up with him, and made us to sit with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus,

and[G2532] raised[G4891] us[G1722] up[G1722] with[G1722] him,[G3588] and[G2532] made[G4776] us[G1722] to[G2532] sit[G2521] with[G1722] him[G3588] in[G1722] the[G1722] heavenly[G2032] places[G5117] in[G1722] Christ[G5547] Jesus,[G2424]
7
that in the ages to come he might show the exceeding riches of his grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus;
that[G2443] in[G1722] the[G1722] ages[G165] to[G2443] come[G1904] he[G3588] might[G5547] show[G1731] the[G1722] exceeding[G5235] riches[G4149] of[G5485] his[G1909] grace[G5485] in[G1722] kindness[G5544] toward[G1909] us[G2249] in[G1722] Christ[G5547] Jesus;[G2424]
8

for by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God,

for[G1063] by[G1223] grace[G5485] you[G5210] have[G2532] been[G1510] saved[G4982] through[G1223] faith,[G4102] and[G2532] that[G3588] not[G3756] of[G1537] yourselves;[G4771] it[G2532] is[G1510] the[G2532] gift[G1435] of[G1537] God,[G2316]
9
not of works, that no one would boast.
not[G3756] of[G1537] works,[G2041] that[G2443] no[G3756] one[G5100] would[G5100] boast.[G2744]
10
For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared before that we would walk in them.
For[G1063] we[G3739] are[G1510] his[G1909] workmanship,[G4161] created[G2936] in[G1722] Christ[G5547] Jesus[G2424] for[G1063] good[G3588] works,[G2041] which[G3739] God[G2316] prepared[G4282] before[G1909] that[G2443] we[G3739] would[G2316] walk[G4043] in[G1722] them.[G3588]
11
Therefore remember that once you, the Gentiles in the flesh, who are called “uncircumcision” by that which is called “circumcision” (in the flesh, made by hands),
Therefore[G1352] remember[G3421] that[G3754] once[G4218] you,[G5210] the[G1722] Gentiles[G1484] in[G1722] the[G1722] flesh,[G4561] who[G3588] are[G3588] called[G3004] “uncircumcision[G203] ” by[G1722] that[G3754] which[G3588] is[G3588] called[G3004] “circumcision”[G4061] (in[G1722] the[G1722] flesh,[G4561] made[G5499] by[G1722] hands),[G5499]
12
that you were at that time separate from Christ, alienated from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of the promise, having no hope and without God in the world.
that[G3754] you[G3754] were[G1510] at[G1722] that[G3754] time[G2540] separate[G5565] from[G2532] Christ,[G5547] alienated[G526] from[G2532] the[G1722] commonwealth[G4174] of[G2532] Israel,[G2474] and[G2532] strangers[G3581] from[G2532] the[G1722] covenants[G1242] of[G2532] the[G1722] promise,[G1860] having[G2192] no[G3361] hope[G1680] and[G2532] without[G5565] God[G2532] in[G1722] the[G1722] world.[G2889]
13

But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far off are made near in the blood of Christ.

But[G1161] now[G1161] in[G1722] Christ[G5547] Jesus[G2424] you[G5210] who[G3588] once[G4218] were[G1510] far[G3112] off[G3112] are[G1510] made[G1096] near[G1451] in[G1722] the[G1722] blood[G129] of[G1722] Christ.[G5547]
14

For he is our peace, who made both one, and broke down the middle wall of separation,

For[G1063] he[G2532] is[G1510] our[G2532] peace,[G1515] who[G3588] made[G4160] both[G2532] one,[G1520] and[G2532] broke[G3089] down[G3089] the[G1722] middle[G3319] wall[G5418] of[G2532] separation,[G3320]
15

having abolished in his flesh the hostility, the law of commandments contained in ordinances, that he might create in himself one new man of the two, making peace,

having[G4160] abolished[G2673] in[G1722] his[G1438] flesh[G4561] the[G1722] hostility,[G2189] the[G1722] law[G3551] of[G3551] commandments[G1785] contained[G4023] in[G1722] ordinances,[G1378] that[G2443] he[G3588] might[G1785] create[G2936] in[G1722] himself[G1438] one[G1520] new[G2537] man[G1520] of[G3551] the[G1722] two,[G1417] making[G4160] peace,[G1515]
16
and might reconcile them both in one body to God through the cross, having killed the hostility through it.
and[G2532] might[G2532] reconcile[G604] them[G3588] both[G2532] in[G1722] one[G1520] body[G4983] to[G2532] God[G2316] through[G1223] the[G1722] cross,[G4716] having[G2532] killed[G615] the[G1722] hostility[G2189] through[G1223] it.[G2532]
17
He came and preached peace to you who were far off and to those who were near.
He[G2532] came[G2064] and[G2532] preached[G2097] peace[G1515] to[G2532] you[G5210] who[G3588] were[G3588] far[G3112] off[G3112] and[G2532] to[G2532] those[G3588] who[G3588] were[G3588] near.[G1451]
18
For through him we both have our access in one Spirit to the Father.
For[G3754] through[G1223] him[G3588] we[G3754] both[G3588] have[G2192] our[G1223] access[G4318] in[G1722] one[G1520] Spirit[G4151] to[G4314] the[G1722] Father.[G3962]
19
So then you are no longer strangers and foreigners, but you are fellow citizens with the saints and of the household of God,
So[G3767] then[G3767] you[G1510] are[G1510] no[G3765] longer[G3765] strangers[G3581] and[G2532] foreigners,[G3941] but[G2532] you[G1510] are[G1510] fellow[G4847] citizens[G4847] with[G2532] the[G2532] saints[G40] and[G2532] of[G2316] the[G2532] household[G3609] of[G2316] God,[G2316]
20
being built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus himself being the chief cornerstone;
being[G1510] built[G2026] on[G1909] the[G2532] foundation[G2310] of[G2532] the[G2532] apostles[G652] and[G2532] prophets,[G4396] Christ[G5547] Jesus[G2424] himself[G1438] being[G1510] the[G2532] chief[G2532] cornerstone;[G204]
21
in whom the whole building, fitted together, grows into a holy temple in the Lord;
in[G1722] whom[G3739] the[G1722] whole[G3956] building,[G3619] fitted[G4883] together,[G4883] grows[G837] into[G1519] a[G1519] holy[G40] temple[G3485] in[G1722] the[G1722] Lord;[G2962]
22
in whom you also are built together for a habitation of God in the Spirit.
in[G1722] whom[G3739] you[G5210] also[G2532] are[G3588] built[G4925] together[G4925] for[G1519] a[G2532] habitation[G2732] of[G4151] God[G2316] in[G1722] the[G1722] Spirit.[G4151]

Chapter 3

1
For this cause I, Paul, am the prisoner of Christ Jesus on behalf of you Gentiles,
2
if it is so that you have heard of the administration of that grace of God which was given me toward you,
3
how that by revelation the mystery was made known to me, as I wrote before in few words,
4
by which, when you read, you can perceive my understanding in the mystery of Christ,
5
which in other generations was not made known to the children of men, as it has now been revealed to his holy apostles and prophets in the Spirit,
6
that the Gentiles are fellow heirs and fellow members of the body, and fellow partakers of his promise in Christ Jesus through the Good News,
7
of which I was made a servant according to the gift of that grace of God which was given me according to the working of his power.
8
To me, the very least of all saints, was this grace given, to preach to the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ,
9
and to make all men see what is the administration[1] of the mystery which for ages has been hidden in God, who created all things through Jesus Christ,
10
to the intent that now through the assembly the manifold wisdom of God might be made known to the principalities and the powers in the heavenly places,
