The Blessings of Redemption

1 Paul, an R1 apostle of Christ R2 Jesus by R3 F1 the will of God,

To the saints R4 F2 who are at F3 Ephesus R5 and who R6 are faithful in Christ R2 Jesus: 2 Grace R7 to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

3 Blessed R8 be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the R9 heavenly places in Christ, 4 just as He R10 chose us in Him before the R11 foundation of the world, that we would be holy R12 and blameless before Him. F4 In R13 love 5 He F5 predestined R14 us to adoption R15 as sons through Jesus Christ to Himself, according R16 to the kind F6 intention of His will, 6 to R17 the praise of the glory of His grace, which He freely bestowed on us in the R18 Beloved. 7 In R19 Him F7 we have redemption R20 through R21 His blood, the forgiveness R22 of our trespasses, according to the R23 riches of His grace 8 which He lavished F8 on us. F9 In all wisdom and insight 9 He made R24 F10 known to us the mystery of His will, according R25 to His kind F11 intention which He purposed R26 in Him 10 with a view to an administration suitable F12 to the R27 fullness of the times, that is, the R28 summing up of all things in Christ, things in F13 the heavens and things on the earth. In Him 11 also F14 we have R29 F15 obtained an inheritance, having been predestined R30 according R31 to His purpose who works all things after R32 the counsel of His will, 12 to the end that we who were the first to hope in Christ F16 would be to R33 the praise of His glory. 13 In Him, F17 you also, after listening to the R34 message of truth, the gospel of your salvation--having also believed, F18 you were sealed R35 in Him F17 with the R36 Holy Spirit of promise, 14 who is given R37 F19 as a pledge of our R38 inheritance, with a view to the redemption R39 of God's R40 own possession, to R41 the praise of His glory.

15 For this reason I too, having R42 heard of the faith in the Lord Jesus which exists among you and your F20 love for all R43 the saints, F21 16 do R44 not cease giving thanks for you, while R45 making mention of you in my prayers; 17 that the God R46 of our Lord Jesus Christ, the R47 Father of glory, may give to you a spirit of wisdom R48 and of revelation R49 in the knowledge F22 of Him. 18 I pray that the R50 eyes of your heart may F23 be enlightened, so that you will know what is the hope R51 of His calling, R52 what are the R53 riches of the glory of His R54 inheritance in the R55 saints, F24 19 and what is the surpassing greatness of His power toward us who believe. These R56 are in accordance with the working of the strength R57 of His might 20 which He brought about in Christ, when He raised R58 Him from the dead and seated R59 Him at His right hand in the R60 heavenly places, 21 far above all R61 rule and authority and power and dominion, and every name R62 that is named, not only in this R63 age but also in the one to come. 22 And He put R64 all things in subjection under His feet, and gave Him as head R65 over all things to the church, 23 which is His body, R66 the fullness R67 of Him who fills R68 all R69 in all.
