 New English Bible Ephesians:1 >>Novum Testamentum Graece (UBS.Ed.26)  

1 FROM PAUL,
APOSTLE of Christ Jesus, commissioned by the will of God,
to God's people at Ephesus, [Some witnesses omit: at Ephesus.] believers incorporate in Christ Jesus.
Salutation Eph.1.1-2 (Ephesus) - late summer 58ceΠαῦλος
ἀπόστολος Χριστοῦ Ἰησοῦ διὰ θελήματος θεοῦ
τοῖς ἀγίοις τοῖς οὖσιν [ἐν Ἐφέσῳ] καὶ πιστοῖς ἐν Χριστῷ Ἰησοῦ·
2 Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.  χάρις ὑμῖν καὶ εἰρήνη ἀπὸ θεοῦ πατρὸς ἡμῶν καὶ κυρίου Ἰησοῦ Χριστοῦ.
3 Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has bestowed on us in Christ every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realms. Spiritual Blessings in Christ Eph.1.3-14Eὐλογητὸς ὁ θεὸς καὶ πατὴρ τοῦ κυρίου ἡμῶν Ἰησοῦ Χριστοῦ, ὁ εὐλογήσας ἡμᾶς ἐν πάσῃ εὐλογίᾳ πνευματικῇ ἐν τοῖς ἐπουρανίοις ἐν Χριστῷ,
4 In Christ he chose us before the world was founded, to be dedicated, to be without blemish in his sight, to be full of love,  καθὼς ἐξελέξατο ἡμᾶς ἐν αὐτῷ πρὸ καταβολῆς κόσμου, εἶναι ἡμᾶς ἀγίους καὶ ἀμώμους κατενώπιον αὐτοῦ ἐν ἀγάπῃ,
5 and he [Or: ... sight. In his love he ...] destined us?such was his will and pleasure?to be accepted as his sons through Jesus Christ,  προορίσας ἡμᾶς εἰς υἱοθεσίαν διὰ Ἰησοῦ Χριστοῦ εἰς αὐτόν, κατὰ τὴν εὐδοκίαν τοῦ θελήματος αὐτοῦ,
6 in order that the glory of his gracious gift, so graciously bestowed on us in his Beloved, might redound to his praise.  εἰς ἐπαινον δόξης τῆς χάριτος αὐτοῦ ἧς ἐχαρίτωσεν ἡμᾶς ἐν τῷ ἠγαπημένῳ,
7 For in Christ our release is secured and our sins are forgiven through the shedding of his blood.  ἐν ᾧ ἐχομεν τὴν ἀπολύτρωσιν διὰ τοῦ αἱματος αὐτοῦ, τὴν ἀφεσιν τῶν παραπτωμάτων, κατὰ τὸ πλοῦτος τῆς χάριτος αὐτοῦ,
8 Therein lies the richness of God's free grace lavished upon us, imparting full wisdom and insight.  ἧς ἐπερίσσευσεν εἰς ἡμᾶς ἐν πάσῃ σοφίᾳ καὶ φρονήσει
9 He has made known to us his hidden purpose—such was his will and pleasure determined beforehand in Christ—  γνωρίσας ἡμῖν τὸ μυστήριον τοῦ θελήματος αὐτοῦ, κατὰ τὴν εὐδοκίαν αὐτοῦ ἣν προέθετο ἐν αὐτῷ
10 to be put into effect when the time was ripe: namely, that the universe, all in heaven and on earth, might be brought into a unity in Christ.
 εἰς οἰκονομίαν τοῦ πληρώματος τῶν καιρῶν, ἀνακεφαλαιώσασθαι τὰ πάντα ἐν τῷ Χριστῷ, τὰ ἐπὶ τοῖς οὐρανοῖς καὶ τὰ ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς· ἐν αὐτῷ,
11 In Christ indeed we have been given our share in the heritage, as was decreed in his design whose purpose is everywhere at work.  ἐν ᾧ καὶ ἐκληρώθημεν προορισθέντες κατὰ πρόθεσιν τοῦ τὰ πάντα ἐνεργοῦντος κατὰ τὴν βουλὴν τοῦ θελήματος αὐτοῦ,
12 For it was his will that we, who were the first to set our hope on Christ, [Or: who already enjoyed the hope of Christ; Or: whose expectation and hope are in Christ.] should cause his glory to be praised.  εἰς τὸ εἶναι ἡμᾶς εἰς ἐπαινον δόξης αὐτοῦ τοὺς προηλπικότας ἐν τῷ Χριστῷ·
13 And you too, when you had heard the message of the truth, the good news of your salvation, and had believed it, became incorporate in Christ and received the seal of the promised Holy Spirit;  ἐν ᾧ καὶ ὑμεῖς ἀκούσαντες τὸν λόγον τῆς ἀληθείας, τὸ εὐαγγέλιον τῆς σωτηρίας ὑμῶν, ἐν ᾧ καὶ πιστεύσαντες ἐσφραγίσθητε τῷ πνεύματι τῆς ἐπαγγελίας τῷ ἀγίῳ,
14 and that Spirit is the pledge that we shall enter upon our heritage, when God has redeemed what is his own, to his praise and glory.
 ὁ ἐστιν ἀρραβὼν τῆς κληρονομίας ἡμῶν, εἰς ἀπολύτρωσιν τῆς περιποιήσεως, εἰς ἐπαινον τῆς δόξης αὐτοῦ.
15 Because of all this, now that I have heard of the faith you have in the Lord Jesus and of the love you bear towards all God's people, Paul's Prayer Eph.1.15-23Διὰ τοῦτο κἀγώ, ἀκούσας τὴν καθ' ὑμᾶς πίστιν ἐν τῷ κυρίῳ Ἰησοῦ καὶ τὴν ἀγάπην τὴν εἰς πάντας τοὺς ἀγίους,
16 I never cease to give thanks for you when I mention you in my prayers.  οὐ παύομαι εὐχαριστῶν ὑπὲρ ὑμῶν μνείαν ποιούμενος ἐπὶ τῶν προσευχῶν μου,
17 I pray that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the all-glorious Father, may give you the spiritual powers of wisdom and vision, by which there comes the knowledge of him.  ἵνα ὁ θεὸς τοῦ κυρίου ἡμῶν Ἰησοῦ Χριστοῦ, ὁ πατὴρ τῆς δόξης, δώῃ ὑμῖν Πνεῦμα σοφίας καὶ ἀποκαλύψεως ἐν ἐπιγνώσει αὐτοῦ,
18 I pray that your inward eyes may be illumined, so that you may know what is the hope to which he calls you, what the wealth and glory of the share he offers you among his people in their heritage,  πεφωτισμένους τοὺς ὀφθαλμοὺς τῆς καρδίας [ὑμῶν] εἰς τὸ εἰδέναι ὑμᾶς τίς ἐστιν ἡ ἐλπὶς τῆς κλήσεως αὐτοῦ, τίς ὁ πλοῦτος τῆς δόξης τῆς κληρονομίας αὐτοῦ ἐν τοῖς ἀγίοις,
19 and how vast the resources of his power open to us who trust in him. They are measured by his strength and the might which he exerted in Christ  καὶ τί τὸ ὑπερβάλλον μέγεθος τῆς δυνάμεως αὐτοῦ εἰς ἡμᾶς τοὺς πιστεύοντας κατὰ τὴν ἐνέργειαν τοῦ κράτους τῆς ἰσχύος αὐτοῦ
20 when he raised him from the dead, when he enthroned him at his right hand in the heavenly realms,  ἣν ἐνήργησεν ἐν τῷ Χριστῷ ἐγείρας αὐτὸν ἐκ νεκρῶν, καὶ καθίσας ἐν δεξιᾷ αὐτοῦ ἐν τοῖς ἐπουρανίοις
21 far above all government and authority, all power and dominion, and any title of sovereignty that can be named, not only in this age but in the age to come.  ὑπεράνω πάσης ἀρχῆς καὶ ἐξουσίας καὶ δυνάμεως καὶ κυριότητος καὶ παντὸς ὀνόματος ὀνομαζομένου οὐ μόνον ἐν τῷ αἰῶνι τούτῳ ἀλλὰ καὶ ἐν τῷ μέλλοντι·
22 He put everything in subjection beneath his feet, and appointed him as supreme head to the church, - and he has put all things under his feet Eph.1.22 | Ps.8.6καὶ πάντα ὑπέταξεν ὑπὸ τοὺς πόδας αὐτοῦ, καὶ αὐτὸν ἐδωκεν κεφαλὴν ὑπὲρ πάντα τῇ ἐκκλησίᾳ,
23 which is his body and as such holds within it the fullness of him who himself receives the entire fullness of God. [Or: as supreme head of the church, which is his body and as such holds within it the fullness of him who fills the universe in all its parts; Or: as supreme head to the church which is his body, and to be all that he himself is who fills the universe in all its parts.]
 ἡτις ἐστὶν τὸ σῶμα αὐτοῦ, τὸ πλήρωμα τοῦ τὰ πάντα ἐν πᾶσιν πληρουμένου.
