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 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,
11: according to the eternal purpose which he purposed in Christ Jesus our Lord;
12: in whom we have boldness and access in confidence through our faith in him.
13: Therefore I ask that you may not lose heart at my troubles for you, which are your glory.
14: For this cause, I bow my knees to the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,
15: from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named,
16: that he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, that you may be strengthened with power through his Spirit in the inward man;
17: that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; to the end that you, being rooted and grounded in love,
18: may be strengthened to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth,
19: and to know Christ's love which surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.
20: Now to him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us,
21: to him be the glory in the assembly and in Christ Jesus to all generations forever and ever. Amen.
