Ephesians Chapter 3 (Index)

Chapters: 1






001  For this cause I Paul, the prisoner of Jesus Christ for you Gentiles,

002  If ye have heard of the dispensation of the grace of God which is given me to you-ward:

003  How that by revelation he made known unto me the mystery; (as I wrote afore in few words,

004  Whereby, when ye read, ye may understand my knowledge in the mystery of Christ)

005  Which in other ages was not made known unto the sons of men, as it is now revealed unto his holy apostles and prophets by the Spirit;

006  That the Gentiles should be fellowheirs, and of the same body, and partakers of his promise in Christ by the gospel:

007  Whereof I was made a minister, according to the gift of the grace of God given unto me by the effectual working of his power.

008  Unto me, who am less than the least of all saints, is this grace given, that I should preach among the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ;

009  And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ:

010  To the intent that now unto the principalities and powers in heavenly places might be known by the church the manifold wisdom of God,

011  According to the eternal purpose which he purposed in Christ Jesus our Lord:

012  In whom we have boldness and access with confidence by the faith of him.

013  Wherefore I desire that ye faint not at my tribulations for you, which is your glory.

014  For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,

015  Of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named,

016  That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man;

017  That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love,

018  May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height;

019  And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.

020  Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us,

021  Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.
