Ephesians 1

1:1 Paul, an apostle of the Messiah by the will of , to the saints which are at Ephesus, and to the faithful in the Messiah :

1:2 Favour be to you, and peace, from our Father, and from the Master the Messiah.

1:3 Blessed be the Elohim and Father of our Master the Messiah, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in the Messiah:

1:4 According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be set-apart and without blame before him in love:

1:5 Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by the Messiah to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will,

1:6 To the praise of the glory of his favour, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved.

1:7 In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his favour;

1:8 Wherein he hath abounded toward us in all wisdom and prudence;

1:9 Having made known unto us the mystery of his will, according to his good pleasure which he hath purposed in himself:

1:10 That in the dispensation of the fulness of times he might gather together in one all things in the Messiah, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth; even in him:

1:11 In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of him who worketh all things after the counsel of his own will:

1:12 That we should be to the praise of his glory, who first trusted in the Messiah.

1:13 In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that Set-apart Spirit of promise,

1:14 Which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory.

1:15 Wherefore I also, after I heard of your faith in the Master , and love unto all the saints,

1:16 Cease not to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers;

1:17 That the Elohim of our Master the Messiah, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him:

1:18 The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints,

1:19 And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power,

1:20 Which he wrought in the Messiah, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places,

1:21 Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come:

1:22 And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the assembly,

1:23 Which is his body, the fulness of him that filleth all in all.
