1 And you hath he quickened, who were a in trespasses and sins;
2 Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this a, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of b:
3 Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the a of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by b the children of wrath, even as others.
4 But God, who is rich in a, for his great love wherewith he loved us,
5 Even when we were dead in sins, hath a us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;)
6 And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:
7 That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding a of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus.
8 For by a are ye b through c; and that not of yourselves: it is the d of God:
9 Not of works, lest any man should a.
10 For we are his a, created in Christ Jesus unto good b, which God hath before ordained that we should c in them.
11 Wherefore remember, that ye being in time past Gentiles in the flesh, who are called a by that which is called the Circumcision in the flesh made by hands;
12 That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and a from the b of promise, having no c, and d God in the world:
13 But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ.
14 For he is our a, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle b of partition between us;
15 Having a in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in b; for to make in himself of twain one c, so making peace;
16 And that he might a both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby:
17 And came and preached peace to you which were afar off, and to them that were nigh.
18 For through him we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father.
19 Now therefore ye are no more a and foreigners, but b with the c, and of the d of God;
20 And are built upon the foundation of the a and b, Jesus Christ himself being the chief c;
21 In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord:
22 In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit.
