1 And he hath quickened you,

2 who were dead in trespasses and sins, Wherein ye formerly walked, according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the sons of disobedience: Among whom also we all had our conversation in time past,

3 in the desires of the flesh, doing the will of the flesh and the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, even as the others.

4 But God who is rich in mercy,

5 through his great love wherewith he loved us, Hath quickened us together with Christ, even when we were dead in trespasses, (by grace ye are saved) And hath raised us up together,

6 and made us sit together in heavenly places through Christ Jesus:

7 That he might shew in the ages to come the exceeding riches of his grace, in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus.

8 For by grace ye are saved through faith; and this not of yourselves:

9 it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.

10 For we are his workmanship, created through Christ Jesus unto good works, which God had before prepared, that we might walk in them.

11 Wherefore remember, that ye being in time past Gentiles in the flesh (who were called the uncircumcision, by that which is called the circumcision made with hands in the flesh) Were at that time without Christ,

12 being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise; having no hope, and without God in the world.

13 But now through Christ Jesus, ye who were once far off are brought nigh by the blood of Christ.

14 For he is our peace, he who hath made both one,

15 having broken down the middle wall of partition, Having abolished by his flesh the enmity, the law of commandments, through his decrees, that he might make the two one new man in himself, so making peace:

16 And might reconcile both in one body to God through the cross, having slain the enmity thereby.

17 And he came and preached peace to you that were afar off, and to them that were nigh.

18 For through him we both have access by one Spirit to the Father.

19 Therefore ye are no longer strangers, and foreigners, but fellow-citizens with the saints and of the houshold of God,

20 Built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief cornerstone, On whom all the building fitly framed together,

21 groweth into an holy temple in the Lord:

22 On whom ye also are built together, for an habitation of God through the Spirit.
