Berean Literal Bible
The Mystery of the Gospel
1For reason of this, I Paul, the prisoner of Christ Jesus for you Gentiles...
2Surely you have heard of the administration of God’s grace, having been given to me toward you, 3that He made known to me the mystery by revelation, just as I have written before in brief, 4which, by reading, you are able to understand my insight into the mystery of Christ, 5which was not made known to the sons of men in other generations as now it has been revealed in the Spirit to His holy apostles and prophets, 6that the Gentiles are joint-heirs, and a joint-body, and joint-partakers of the promise in Christ Jesus, through the gospel, 7of which I became servant according to the gift of God’s grace, having been given to me according to the working of His power.
8To me, the very least of all saints, was given this grace: to preach to the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ 9and to enlighten all what is the administration of the mystery having been hidden from the ages in God, the One having created all things, 10so that now through the church the manifold wisdom of God should be made known to the rulers and authorities in the heavenly realms, 11according to the purpose of the ages, which He accomplished in Christ Jesus our Lord, 12in whom we have boldness and access in confidence, by faith in Him.
13Therefore I implore you not to lose heart at my tribulations for you, which is your glory.
Paul's Prayer for the Ephesians
14... for reason of this I bow my knees to the Father,a 15from whom every family in the heavens and on earth is named, 16that He might give you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with power by His Spirit in the inner man, 17for Christ to dwell in your hearts through faith, being rooted and being founded in love, 18so that you may be fully able, with all the saints, to comprehend what is the breadth and length and height and depth, 19and to know the love of Christ surpassing knowledge, so that you may be filled unto all the fullness of God.
20Now to the One being able to do exceedingly above all things that we ask or think, according to the power working in us,
21to Him be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all the generations of the age of the ages. Amen.
