THE EPISTLE OF PAUL THE APOSTLE TO THE
Gentiles are fellowheirs with Israel—The love of Christ passeth all understanding.
For this cause I Paul, the prisoner of Jesus Christ for you Gentiles,
If ye have heard of the adispensation
of the grace of God which is given me to you-ward:
How that by revelation he made aknown
unto me the mystery; (as I bwrote
afore in few words,
Whereby, when ye read, ye may understand my knowledge in the amystery
Which in other ages was not made known unto the sons of men, as it is now arevealed
unto his holy apostles and bprophets
by the Spirit;
That the aGentiles
should be fellowheirs, and of the same body, and partakers of his promise in Christ by the gospel:
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.
Unto me, who am less than the least of all saints, is this agrace
given, that I should preach among the Gentiles the unsearchable briches
And to make all men
see what is
the fellowship of the amystery
, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who bcreated
all things by cJesus
To the intent that now unto the principalities and powers in heavenly places might be known by the church the manifold wisdom of God,
According to the eternal apurpose
which he purposed in Christ Jesus our Lord:
In whom we have boldness and access with confidence by the faith of him.
Wherefore I desire that ye faint not at my tribulations for you, which is your glory.
For this cause I bow my knees unto the aFather
of our Lord Jesus Christ,
Of whom the whole afamily
in heaven and earth is named,
That he would grant you, according to the ariches
of his glory, to be bstrengthened
with might by his Spirit in the inner man;
That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being arooted
May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height;
And to know the alove
of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.
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,
Unto him be
glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, aworld
without end. Amen.
