2 New English Bible (New Testament) Passage New Testament in Greek (UBS.Ed.26)

11Remember then your former condition: you, Gentiles as you are outwardly, Or: by birth. you, 'the uncircumcised' so called by those who are called 'the circumcised' (but only with reference to an outward rite)One in Christ Eph.2.11-22Διὸ μνημονεύετε ὅτι ποτὲ ὑμεῖς τὰ ἐθνη ἐν σαρκί, οἱ λεγόμενοι ἀκροβυστία ὑπὸ τῆς λεγομένης περιτομῆς ἐν σαρκὶ χειροποιήτου,
12you were at that time separate from Christ, strangers to the community of Israel, outside God's covenants and the promise that goes with them. Your world was a world without hope and without God. ὁτι ἦτε τῷ καιρῷ ἐκείνῳ χωρὶς Χριστοῦ, ἀπηλλοτριωμένοι τῆς πολιτείας τοῦ Ἰσραὴλ καὶ ξένοι τῶν διαθηκῶν τῆς ἐπαγγελίας, ἐλπίδα μὴ ἐχοντες καὶ ἀθεοι ἐν τῷ κόσμῳ.
13But now in union with Christ Jesus you who once were far off have been brought near through the shedding of Christ's blood. νυνὶ δὲ ἐν Χριστῷ Ἰησοῦ ὑμεῖς οἱ ποτε ὄντες μακρὰν ἐγενήθητε ἐγγὺς ἐν τῷ αἱματι τοῦ Χριστοῦ.
14For he is himself our peace. Gentiles and Jews, he has made the two one, and in his own body of flesh and blood has broken down the enmity which stood like a dividing wall between them; Αὐτὸς γάρ ἐστιν ἡ εἰρήνη ἡμῶν, ὁ ποιήσας τὰ ἀμφότερα ἓν καὶ τὸ μεσότοιχον τοῦ φραγμοῦ λύσας, τὴν ἐχθραν, ἐν τῇ σαρκὶ αὐτοῦ,
15for he annulled the law with its rules and regulations, so as to create out of the two a single new humanity in himself, thereby making peace. τὸν νόμον τῶν ἐντολῶν ἐν δόγμασιν καταργήσας, ἵνα τοὺς δύο κτίσῃ ἐν αὐτῷ εἰς ἑνα καινὸν ἄνθρωπον ποιῶν εἰρήνην,
16This was his purpose, to reconcile the two in a single body to God through the cross, on which he killed the enmity. Or: ... cross. Thus in his own person he put the enemy to death.
 καὶ ἀποκαταλλάξῃ τοὺς ἀμφοτέρους ἐν ἑνὶ σώματι τῷ θεῷ διὰ τοῦ σταυροῦ, ἀποκτείνας τὴν ἐχθραν ἐν αὐτῷ.
17So he came and proclaimed the good news: peace to you who were far off, and peace to those who were near by;- And he came and preached peace to you who were far Eph.2.17 | Is.57.19 | Is.52.7 | Zch.9.10καὶ ἐλθὼν εὐηγγελίσατο εἰρήνην ὑμῖν τοῖς μακρὰν καὶ εἰρήνην τοῖς ἐγγύς·
18for through him we both alike have access to the Father in the one Spirit. ὁτι δῖ αὐτοῦ ἐχομεν τὴν προσαγωγὴν οἱ ἀμφότεροι ἐν ἑνὶ πνεύματι πρὸς τὸν πατέρα.
19Thus you are no longer aliens in a foreign land, but fellow-citizens with God's people, members of God's household. ἀρα οὖν οὐκέτι ἐστὲ ξένοι καὶ πάροικοι, ἀλλὰ ἐστὲ συμπολῖται τῶν ἀγίων καὶ οἰκεῖοι τοῦ θεοῦ,
20You are built upon the foundation laid by the apostles and prophets, and Christ Jesus himself is the foundation-stone. Or: built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, and Christ Jesus himself is the keystone. ἐποικοδομηθέντες ἐπὶ τῷ θεμελίῳ τῶν ἀποστόλων καὶ προφητῶν, ὀντος ἀκρογωνιαίου αὐτοῦ Χριστοῦ Ἰησοῦ,
21In him the whole building Or: every structure. is bonded together and grows into a holy temple in the Lord. ἐν ᾧ πᾶσα οἰκοδομὴ συναρμολογουμένη αὐξει εἰς ναὸν ἀγιον ἐν κυρίῳ,
22In him you too are being built with all the rest into a spiritual dwelling for God.
 ἐν ᾧ καὶ ὑμεῖς συνοικοδομεῖσθε εἰς κατοικητήριον τοῦ θεοῦ ἐν πνεύματι.
