Ephesians 3 (WEBP)

[1] For this cause I, Paul, am the prisoner of Christ Jesus on behalf of you Gentiles,
[2] if it is so that you have heard of the administration of that grace of God which was given me toward you,
[3] how that by revelation the mystery was made known to me, as I wrote before in few words,
[4] by which, when you read, you can perceive my understanding in the mystery of Christ,
[5] which in other generations was not made known to the children of men, as it has now been revealed to his holy apostles and prophets in the Spirit,
[6] that the Gentiles are fellow heirs and fellow members of the body, and fellow partakers of his promise in Christ Jesus through the Good News,
[7] of which I was made a servant according to the gift of that grace of God which was given me according to the working of his power.
[8] To me, the very least of all saints, was this grace given, to preach to the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ,
[9] and to make all men see what is the administration° of the mystery which for ages has been hidden in God, who created all things through Jesus Christ,
[10] to the intent that now through the assembly the manifold wisdom of God might be made known to the principalities and the powers in the heavenly places,
[11] according to the eternal purpose which he accomplished in Christ Jesus our Lord.
[12] In him we have boldness and access in confidence through our faith in him.
[13] Therefore I ask that you may not lose heart at my troubles for you, which are your glory.
[14] For this cause, I bow my knees to the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,
[15] from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named,
[16] that he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, that you may be strengthened with power through his Spirit in the inner person,
[17] that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith, to the end that you, being rooted and grounded in love,
[18] may be strengthened to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and height and depth,
[19] and to know Christ’s love which surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.
[20] Now to him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us,
[21] to him be the glory in the assembly and in Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.

Ephesians 3 (KJVS)

[1] For this G5127 cause G5484 I G1473 Paul G3972, the prisoner G1198 of Jesus G2424 Christ G5547 for G5228 you G5216 Gentiles G1484,
[2] If G1489 ye have heard G191 (AorActInd) of the dispensation G3622 of the grace G5485 of God G2316 which G3588 is given G1325 (AorPasPtc) me G3427 to G1519 you-ward G5209:
[3] How that G3754 by G2596 revelation G602 he made known G1107 (AorActInd) unto me G3427 the mystery G3466; (as G2531 I wrote afore G4270 (AorActInd) in G1722 few words G3641,
[4] Whereby G4314 G3739, when ye read G314 (PresActPtc), ye may G1410 (PresMidPasDepInd) understand G3539 (AorActInf) my G3450 knowledge G4907 in G1722 the mystery G3466 of Christ G5547)
[5] Which G3739 in G1722 other G2087 ages G1074 was G1107 not G3756 made known G1107 (AorPasInd) unto the sons G5207 of men G444, as G5613 it is G601 now G3568 revealed G601 (AorPasInd) unto his G846 holy G40 apostles G652 and G2532 prophets G4396 by G1722 the Spirit G4151;
[6] That the Gentiles G1484 should be G1511 (PresInf) fellowheirs G4789, and G2532 of the same body G4954, and G2532 partakers G4830 of his G846 promise G1860 in G1722 Christ G5547 by G1223 the gospel G2098:
[7] Whereof G3739 I was made G1096 (Aor2MidDepInd) a minister G1249, according G2596 to the gift G1431 of the grace G5485 of God G2316 given G1325 (AorPasPtc) unto me G3427 by G2596 the effectual working G1753 of his G846 power G1411.
[8] Unto me G1698, who am less than the least G1647 of all G3956 saints G40, is G1325 this G3778 grace G5485 given G1325 (AorPasInd), that I should preach G2097 (AorMidInf) among G1722 the Gentiles G1484 the unsearchable G421 riches G4149 of Christ G5547;
[9] And G2532 to make G5461 all G3956 [men] see G5461 (AorActInf) what G5101 [is] the fellowship G2842 of the mystery G3466, which G3588 from G575 the beginning of the world G165 hath been hid G613 (PerfPasPtc) in G1722 God G2316, who G3588 created G2936 (AorActPtc) all things G3956 by G1223 Jesus G2424 Christ G5547:
[10] To the intent that G2443 now G3568 unto the principalities G746 and G2532 powers G1849 in G1722 heavenly G2032 [places] might be known G1107 (AorPasSubj) by G1223 the church G1577 the manifold G4182 wisdom G4678 of God G2316,
[11] According to G2596 the eternal G165 purpose G4286 which G3739 he purposed G4160 (AorActInd) in G1722 Christ G5547 Jesus G2424 our G2257 Lord G2962:
[12] In G1722 whom G3739 we have G2192 (PresActInd) boldness G3954 and G2532 access G4318 with G1722 confidence G4006 by G1223 the faith G4102 of him G846.
[13] Wherefore G1352 I desire G154 (PresMidInd) that ye faint G1573 (PresActInf) not G3361 at G1722 my G3450 tribulations G2347 for G5228 you G5216, which G3748 is G2076 (PresInd) your G5216 glory G1391.
[14] For this G5127 cause G5484 I bow G2578 (PresActInd) my G3450 knees G1119 unto G4314 the Father G3962 of our G2257 Lord G2962 Jesus G2424 Christ G5547,
[15] Of G1537 whom G3739 the whole G3956 family G3965 in G1722 heaven G3772 and G2532 earth G1909 G1093 is named G3687 (PresPasInd),
[16] That G2443 he would grant G1325 (Aor2ActSubj) (Aor2ActOpt) you G5213, according to G2596 the riches G4149 of his G846 glory G1391, to be strengthened G2901 (AorPasInf) with might G1411 by G1223 his G846 Spirit G4151 in G1519 the inner G2080 man G444;
[17] That Christ G5547 may dwell G2730 (AorActInf) in G1722 your G5216 hearts G2588 by G1223 faith G4102; that G2443 ye, being rooted G4492 (PerfPasPtc) and G2532 grounded G2311 (PerfPasPtc) in G1722 love G26,
[18] May be able G1840 (AorActSubj) to comprehend G2638 (Aor2MidInf) with G4862 all G3956 saints G40 what G5101 [is] the breadth G4114, and G2532 length G3372, and G2532 depth G899, and G2532 height G5311;
[19] And G5037 to know G1097 (Aor2ActInf) the love G26 of Christ G5547, which passeth G5235 (PresActPtc) knowledge G1108, that G2443 ye might be filled G4137 (AorPasSubj) with G1519 all G3956 the fulness G4138 of God G2316.
[20] Now G1161 unto him that is able G1410 (PresMidPasDepPtc) to do G4160 (AorActInf) exceeding G5228 abundantly G1537 G4053 above G5228 all G3956 that G3739 we ask G154 (PresMidInd) or G2228 think G3539 (PresActInd), according to G2596 the power G1411 that worketh G1754 (PresMidPtc) in G1722 us G2254,
[21] Unto him G846 [be] glory G1391 in G1722 the church G1577 by G1722 Christ G5547 Jesus G2424 throughout G1519 all G3956 ages G1074, world G165 without end G165. Amen G281.

Young’s Literal Translation

Ephesians 3 (YLT)

[1] For this cause, I Paul, the prisoner of Christ Jesus for you the nations,
[2] if, indeed, ye did hear of the dispensation of the grace of God that was given to me in regard to you,
[3] that by revelation He made known to me the secret, according as I wrote before in few words-
[4] in regard to which ye are able, reading it, to understand my knowledge in the secret of the Christ,
[5] which in other generations was not made known to the sons of men, as it was now revealed to His holy apostles and prophets in the Spirit-
[6] that the nations be fellow-heirs, and of the same body, and partakers of His promise in the Christ, through the good news,
[7] of which I became a ministrant, according to the gift of the grace of God that was given to me, according to the working of His power;
[8] to me-the less than the least of all the saints-was given this grace, among the nations to proclaim good news-the untraceable riches of the Christ,
[9] and to cause all to see what is the fellowship of the secret that hath been hid from the ages in God, who the all things did create by Jesus Christ,
[10] that there might be made known now to the principalities and the authorities in the heavenly places, through the assembly, the manifold wisdom of God,
[11] according to a purpose of the ages, which He made in Christ Jesus our Lord,
[12] in whom we have the freedom and the access in confidence through the faith of him,
[13] wherefore, I ask you not to faint in my tribulations for you, which is your glory.
[14] For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,
[15] of whom the whole family in the heavens and on earth is named,
[16] that He may give to you, according to the riches of His glory, with might to be strengthened through His Spirit, in regard to the inner man,
[17] that the Christ may dwell through the faith in your hearts, in love having been rooted and founded,
[18] that ye may be in strength to comprehend, with all the saints, what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height,
[19] to know also the love of the Christ that is exceeding the knowledge, that ye may be filled-to all the fulness of God;
[20] and to Him who is able above all things to do exceeding abundantly what we ask or think, according to the power that is working in us,
[21] to Him is the glory in the assembly in Christ Jesus, to all the generations of the age of the ages. Amen.
