|<< Ephesians 1 >>|
Aramaic Bible in Plain English
Paul, an Apostle of Yeshua The Messiah in the will of God, to those who are in Ephesaus, holy and faithful in Yeshua The Messiah.
Peace with you and grace from God our Father and from our Lord Yeshua The Messiah.
3Blessed is The God and The Father of our Lord Yeshua The Messiah, he who has blessed us with all the spiritual blessings in Heaven in The Messiah.
4Just as he chose us beforehand in him from before the foundation of the universe, that we shall be holy and without spot before him, and he ordained us beforehand in love for himself.
5And he has constituted us as children by Yeshua The Messiah, as that is pleasing to his will,
6That the glory of his grace may be praised, that which overflows upon us by his Beloved One.
7For in him we have redemption, and the forgiveness of sins by his blood, according to the riches of his grace,
8That which has superabounded in us in all wisdom and in all intelligence.
9And he has taught us the mystery of his will, that which he had before ordained to perform in himself,
10For the administration of the end of time, that all things which are in Heaven and in Earth would be made new again by The Messiah.
11And we are chosen by him as he had before ordained us and willed to do all according to the counsel of his will,
12That we would be those who first hoped in The Messiah, to the honor of his glory.
13For you also heard by him the word of truth, which is The Good News of your salvation, and you believed in him, and you were sealed in The Spirit of Holiness who was promised,
14Who is the pledge of our inheritance for the redemption of those who are living and for the glory of his honor.
15Because of this, behold, I also, from when I heard of your faith in our Lord Yeshua The Messiah and your love for all The Holy Ones,
16I do not cease to give thanks for you and to remember you in my prayers,
17So that The God of our Lord Yeshua The Messiah, The Father of glory, would give you The Spirit of wisdom and revelation with his knowledge,
18And that the eyes of your hearts would be enlightened, that you will know what is the hope of his calling and what is the wealth of the glory of his inheritance in The Holy Ones,
19And what is the excellence of the greatness of his power in us, by those things which we believe, according to the action of the immensity of his power,
20Which he performed in The Messiah and raised him from among the dead and set him at his right hand in Heaven,
21Higher than all Principalities, Rulers, Powers, and Dominions, and higher than every name that is named, not only in this universe, but also in the one that is coming.
22And he has put everything into subjection under his feet, and he has given him who is higher than all as The Head of the church,
23Which is his body and the fullness of him who fills all in all.
