The Gospel to the Ephesians of the Christian New Testament Holy Bible

Ephesians 1:1 Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God,  to the saints which are at Ephesus, and to the faithful in  Christ Jesus: 

Ephesians 1:2 Grace be to you, and peace, from God  our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ.

Ephesians 1:3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus  Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in  heavenly places in Christ: 

Ephesians 1:4 According as he hath  chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we  should be holy and without blame before him in love: 

Ephesians 1:5  Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by  Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of  his will, 

Ephesians 1:6 To the praise of the glory of his grace,  wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved. 

Ephesians 1:7 In  whom we have redemption through his blood, the  forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace;  

Ephesians 1:8 Wherein he hath abounded toward us in all wisdom  and prudence; 

Ephesians 1:9 Having made known unto us the  mystery of his will, according to his good pleasure which he  hath purposed in himself: 

Ephesians 1:10 That in the dispensation of  the fulness of times he might gather together in one all  things in Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on  earth; even in him: 

Ephesians 1:11 In whom also we have obtained  an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose  of him who worketh all things after the counsel of his own  will: 

Ephesians 1:12 That we should be to the praise of his glory,  who first trusted in Christ. 

The Gospel to the Ephesians

Ephesians 1:13 In whom ye also  trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of  your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were  sealed with that holy Spirit of promise, 

Ephesians 1:14 Which is the  earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the  purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory.  

Ephesians 1:15 Wherefore I also, after I heard of your faith in the  Lord Jesus, and love unto all the saints, 

Ephesians 1:16 Cease not to  give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers;  

Ephesians 1:17 That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of  glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and  revelation in the knowledge of him: 

Ephesians 1:18 The eyes of  your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know  what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the  glory of his inheritance in the saints, 

Ephesians 1:19 And what is  the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who  believe, according to the working of his mighty power,  

Ephesians 1:20 Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him  from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the  heavenly places, 

Ephesians 1:21 Far above all principality, and  power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is  named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to  come: 

Ephesians 1:22 And hath put all things under his feet, and  gave him to be the head over all things to the church,  

Ephesians 1:23 Which is his body, the fulness of him that filleth all  in all.  

Ephesians 2:1 And you hath he quickened, who were dead in  trespasses and sins; 

Ephesians 2:2 Wherein in time past ye 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 children of disobedience: 

Ephesians 2:3 Among whom also we  all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our  flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and  were by nature the children of wrath, even as others. 

Ephesians 2:4  But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith  he loved us, 

Ephesians 2:5 Even when we were dead in sins, hath  quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;)  

Ephesians 2:6 And hath raised us up together, and made us sit  together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus: 

Ephesians 2:7 That in  the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his  grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus.  

Ephesians 2:8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not  of yourselves: it is the gift of God: 

Ephesians 2:9 Not of works,  lest any man should boast. 

Ephesians 2:10 For we are his  workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works,  which God hath before ordained that we should walk in  them.  

Ephesians 2:11 Wherefore remember, that ye being in time past  Gentiles in the flesh, who are called Uncircumcision by that  which is called the Circumcision in the flesh made by  hands; 

Ephesians 2:12 That at that time ye were without Christ,  being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and  strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope,  and without God in the world: 

Ephesians 2:13 But now in Christ  Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the  blood of Christ. 

Ephesians 2:14 For he is our peace, who hath made  both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition  between us; 

Ephesians 2:15 Having abolished in his flesh the  enmity, even the law of commandments contained in  ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man,  so making peace; 

Ephesians 2:16 And that he might reconcile both  unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity  thereby: 

Ephesians 2:17 And came and preached peace to you which  were afar off, and to them that were nigh. 

Ephesians 2:18 For  through him we both have access by one Spirit unto the  Father. 

Ephesians 2:19 Now therefore ye are no more strangers and  foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints, and of the  household of God; 

Ephesians 2:20 And are built upon the  foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ  himself being the chief corner stone; 

Ephesians 2:21 In whom all  the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy  temple in the Lord: 

Ephesians 2:22 In whom ye also are builded  together for an habitation of God through the Spirit.  

Ephesians 3:1 For this cause I Paul, the prisoner of Jesus Christ for  you Gentiles, 

Ephesians 3:2 If ye have heard of the dispensation of  the grace of God which is given me to you ward: 

Ephesians 3:3 How  that by revelation he made known unto me the mystery; (as  I wrote afore in few words, 

Ephesians 3:4 Whereby, when ye read,  ye may understand my knowledge in the mystery of Christ)  

Ephesians 3:5 Which in other ages was not made known unto the  sons of men, as it is now revealed unto his holy apostles and  prophets by the Spirit; 

Ephesians 3:6 That the Gentiles should be  fellow heirs, and of the same body, and partakers of his  promise in Christ by the gospel: 

Ephesians 3:7 Whereof I was made  a minister, according to the gift of the grace of God given  unto me by the effectual working of his power. 

Ephesians 3:8 Unto  me, who am less than the least of all saints, is this grace  given, that I should preach among the Gentiles the  unsearchable riches of Christ; 

Ephesians 3:9 And to make all men  see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the  beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created  all things by Jesus Christ: 

Ephesians 3:10 To the intent that now  unto the principalities and powers in heavenly places  might be known by the church the manifold wisdom of  God, 

Ephesians 3:11 According to the eternal purpose which he  purposed in Christ Jesus our Lord: 

Ephesians 3:12 In whom we have  boldness and access with confidence by the faith of him.  

Ephesians 3:13 Wherefore I desire that ye faint not at my  tribulations for you, which is your glory. 

Ephesians 3:14 For this  cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus  Christ, 

Ephesians 3:15 Of whom the whole family in heaven and  earth is named, 

Ephesians 3:16 That he would grant you, according  to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by  his Spirit in the inner man; 

Ephesians 3:17 That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in  love, 

Ephesians 3:18 May be able to comprehend with all saints  what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height;   

Ephesians 3:19 And to know the love of Christ, which passeth  knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of  God.  

Ephesians 3:20 Now unto him that is able to do exceeding  abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the  power that worketh in us, 

Ephesians 3:21 Unto him be glory in the  church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without  end. Amen.  

Ephesians 4:1 I therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you  that ye walk worthy of the vocation wherewith ye are  called, 

Ephesians 4:2 With all lowliness and meekness, with  longsuffering, forbearing one another in love; 

Ephesians 4:3  Endeavouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of  peace. 

Ephesians 4:4 There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye  are called in one hope of your calling; 

Ephesians 4:5 One Lord, one  faith, one baptism, 

Ephesians 4:6 One God and Father of all, who  is above all, and through all, and in you all. 

Ephesians 4:7 But unto  every one of us is given grace according to the measure of  the gift of Christ. 

Ephesians 4:8 Wherefore he saith, When he  ascended up on high, he led captivity captive, and gave gifts  unto men. 

Ephesians 4:9 (Now that he ascended, what is it but that  he also descended first into the lower parts of the earth?  

Ephesians 4:10 He that descended is the same also that ascended up  far above all heavens, that he might fill all things.) 

Ephesians 4:11  And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some,  evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; 

Ephesians 4:12 For the  perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the  edifying of the body of Christ: 

Ephesians 4:13 Till we all come in  the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of  God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of  the fulness of Christ: 

Ephesians 4:14 That we henceforth be no  more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with  every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning  craftiness, whereby they lie in 
wait to deceive; 

Ephesians 4:15 But  speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all  things, which is the head, even Christ: 

Ephesians 4:16 From whom  the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that  which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual  working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of  the body unto the edifying of itself in love.  

Ephesians 4:17 This I say therefore, and testify in the Lord, that ye  henceforth walk not as other Gentiles walk, in the vanity of  their mind, 

Ephesians 4:18 Having the understanding darkened,  being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance  that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart:  

Ephesians 4:19 Who being past feeling have given themselves over  unto lasciviousness, to work all uncleanness with  greediness. 

Ephesians 4:20 But ye have not so learned Christ;  

Ephesians 4:21 If so be that ye have heard him, and have been  taught by him, as the truth is in Jesus: 

Ephesians 4:22 That ye put  off concerning the former conversation the old man, which  is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts; 

Ephesians 4:23 And be  renewed in the spirit of your mind; 

Ephesians 4:24 And that ye put  on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness  and true holiness.  

Ephesians 4:25 Wherefore putting away lying, speak every man  truth with his neighbour: for we are members one of  another. 

Ephesians 4:26 Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go  down upon your wrath: 

Ephesians 4:27 Neither give place to the  devil. 

Ephesians 4:28 Let him that stole steal no more: but rather let  him labour, working with his hands the thing which is  good, that he may have to give to him that needeth. 

Ephesians 4:29  Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth,  but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may  minister grace unto the hearers. 

Ephesians 4:30 And grieve not the  holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of  redemption. 

Ephesians 4:31 Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger,  and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with  all malice: 

Ephesians 4:32 And be ye kind one to another,  tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for  Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.   

Ephesians 5:1 Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children;  

Ephesians 5:2 And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and  hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God  for a sweetsmelling savour. 

Ephesians 5:3 But fornication, and all  uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named  among you, as becometh saints; 

Ephesians 5:4 Neither filthiness,  nor foolish talking, nor jesting, which are not convenient:  but rather giving of thanks. 

Ephesians 5:5 For this ye know, that no  whoremonger, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who  is an idolater, hath any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ  and of God. 

Ephesians 5:6 Let no man deceive you with vain words:  for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon  the children of disobedience. 

Ephesians 5:7 Be not ye therefore  partakers with them. 

Ephesians 5:8 For ye were sometimes  darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as  children of light: 

Ephesians 5:9 (For the fruit of the Spirit is in all  goodness and righteousness and truth;) 

Ephesians 5:10 Proving what  is acceptable unto the Lord. 

Ephesians 5:11 And have no fellowship  with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove  them. 

Ephesians 5:12 For it is a shame even to speak of those  things which are done of them in secret. 

Ephesians 5:13 But all  things that are reproved are made manifest by the light: for  whatsoever doth make manifest is light. 

Ephesians 5:14 Wherefore  he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead,  and Christ shall give thee light. 

Ephesians 5:15 See then that ye  walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, 

Ephesians 5:16  Redeeming the time, because the days are evil. 

Ephesians 5:17  Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the  will of the Lord is. 

Ephesians 5:18 And be not drunk with wine,  wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit; 

Ephesians 5:19  Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual  songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the  Lord; 

Ephesians 5:20 Giving thanks always for all things unto God  and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ; 

Ephesians 5:21  Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God.  

Ephesians 5:22 Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands,  as unto the Lord. 

Ephesians 5:23 For the husband is the head of the  wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the  saviour of the body. 

Ephesians 5:24 Therefore as the church is  subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own  husbands in every thing. 

Ephesians 5:25 Husbands, love your wives,  even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for  it; 

Ephesians 5:26 That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the  washing of water by the word, 

Ephesians 5:27 That he might present  it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle,  or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without  blemish. 

Ephesians 5:28 So ought men to love their wives as their  own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself. 

Ephesians 5:29  For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and  cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church: 

Ephesians 5:30 For we  are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones.  

Ephesians 5:31 For this cause shall a man leave his father and  mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall  be one flesh. 

Ephesians 5:32 This is a great mystery: but I speak  concerning Christ and the church. 

Ephesians 5:33 Nevertheless let  every one of you in particular so love his wife even as  himself; and the wife see that she reverence her husband.  

Ephesians 6:1 Children, obey your parents in the Lord: for this is right. 

Ephesians 6:2 Honour thy father and mother; (which is the  first commandment with promise;) 

Ephesians 6:3 That it may be  well with thee, and thou mayest live long on the earth. 

Ephesians 6:4  And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but  bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.   

Ephesians 6:5 Servants, be obedient to them that are your masters  according to the flesh, with fear and trembling, in singleness  of your heart, as unto Christ; 

Ephesians 6:6 Not with eyeservice, as  menpleasers; but as the servants of Christ, doing the will of  God from the heart; 

Ephesians 6:7 With good will doing service, as  to the Lord, and not to men: 

Ephesians 6:8 Knowing that whatsoever  good thing any man doeth, the same shall he receive of the  Lord, whether he be bond or free. 

Ephesians 6:9 And, ye masters,  do the same things unto them, forbearing threatening:  knowing that your Master also is in heaven; neither is there  respect of persons with him.  

Ephesians 6:10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in  the power of his might. 

Ephesians 6:11 Put on the whole armour of  God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the  devil. 

Ephesians 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood,  but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers  of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in  high places. 

Ephesians 6:13 Wherefore take unto you the whole  armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil  day, and having done all, to stand. 

Ephesians 6:14 Stand therefore,  having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the  breastplate of righteousness; 

Ephesians 6:15 And your feet shod  with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 

Ephesians 6:16 Above  all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to  quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. 

Ephesians 6:17 And take  the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is  the word of God: 

Ephesians 6:18 Praying always with all prayer and  supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all  perseverance and supplication for all saints; 

Ephesians 6:19 And for  me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open  my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel,  

Ephesians 6:20 For which I am an ambassador in bonds: that therein  I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.  

Ephesians 6:21 But that ye also may know my affairs, and how I  do, Tychicus, a beloved brother and faithful minister in the  Lord, shall make known to you all things: 

Ephesians 6:22 Whom I  have sent unto you for the same purpose, that ye might  know our affairs, and that he might comfort your hearts.  

Ephesians 6:23 Peace be to the brethren, and love with faith,  from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. 

Ephesians 6:24  Grace be with all them that love our Lord Jesus Christ in  sincerity. Amen.
