1: For this cause I Paul, the prisoner of Christ Jesus for you Gentiles, 2: If that ordering of the grace of God has come to your knowledge, which was given to me for you, 3: How by revelation the secret was made clear to me, as I said before in a short letter, 4: By the reading of which you will be clear about my knowledge of the secret of Christ; 5: Which in other generations was not given to the sons of men, but the revelation of it has now been made to his holy Apostles and prophets in the Spirit; 6: Which is that the Gentiles have a part in the heritage, and in the same body, and in the same hope in Christ through the good news, 7: Of which I was made a preacher, through that grace of God which was given to me in the measure of the working of his power. 8: To me, who am less than the least of all the saints, was this grace given, so that I might make clear to the Gentiles the good news of the unending wealth of Christ: 9: And make all men see what is the ordering of the secret which from the first has been kept in God who made all things; 10: So that now to the rulers and the authorities in the heavens might be made clear through the church the wide-shining wisdom of God, 11: Which is seen in his eternal purpose in Christ Jesus our Lord: 12: By whom we come near to God without fear through faith in him. 13: For this reason it is my prayer that you may not become feeble because of my troubles for you, which are your glory. 14: For this cause I go down on my knees before the Father, 15: From whom every family in heaven and on earth is named, 16: That in the wealth of his glory he would make you strong with power through his Spirit in your hearts; 17: So that Christ may have his place in your hearts through faith; and that you, being rooted and based in love, 18: May have strength to see with all the saints how wide and long and high and deep it is, 19: And to have knowledge of the love of Christ which is outside all knowledge, so that you may be made complete as God himself is complete. 20: Now to him who is able to do in full measure more than all our desires or thoughts, through the power which is working in us, 21: To him be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations for ever and ever. So be it.
