Paul's Letter to the Ephesians
1. Paul, the apostle of Eashoa Msheekha by the will of Allaha, to those who are in Ephesus, the saints and the faithful in Eashoa Msheekha, 2. Peace be with you and grace from Allaha our Father and Maran, Eashoa Msheekha.
3. Blessed is the Allaha, Father of Maran Eashoa Msheekha, who blessed us with every heavenly benediction through the Messiah, 4. As He chose us through him before the foundations of the universe, so as to be sanctified through him and not by our own oaths. 5. And with love, He assigned us to him. And He consecrated us as children through Eashoa Msheekha, according to his will, 6. So as He may exalt the glory of his mercy, He that poured it over us through His beloved. 7. Through whom we have salvation, and through his blood the forgiveness of sins, according to his abundant grace, 8. That which he magnified through us, in every act of wisdom and edification of spirit. 9. And He declared to us the sermon of His will, that which from the beginning He had consecrated through him, 10. The supreme reign over the fulfillment of all the Ages, so that everything that is in heaven and on earth is renewed through the Messiah all over again.* 11. And we are chosen by him, according to how we were consecrated at the beginning, and according to how He wished everyone to be deployed by the intentions of his will. 12. That we may be the ones who proffered the hope of the Messiah in preparation for his imminent glory. 13. So as you may also hear through him the earnest manifestation, that which is the Hope of your eternal life, and through him you have Faith and have been sealed by the Holy Spirit that was announced by the angels, 14. That which is the bounty of the inheritance,* the salvation of those who shall live [everlasting lives] and the glory of his honor.*
15. Because of this I too, behold, since I heard of your faith in Maran Eashoa Msheekha, and your love for all the saints, 16. I never cease from confessing on your behalf and in remembering you in my prayers, 17. That the Allahe* of Maran Eashoa Msheekha, the father of Glory, should give you the spirit of wisdom and the revelation of his knowledge, 18. And that he may brighten the eye of your hearts, that you may know what is the Hope of his calling and the wealth of the glory that is the inheritance of saints, 19. And so that great power is magnified through us by our faith in him, according to His all consuming power. 20. That He performed through the Messiah and raised him from the dead* and placed him from His right in heaven, 21. Higher than all the thrones, authorities, powers and lordships, and higher than all the names that are ever praised, not only in this universe alone, except also in the future. 22. And everything under his feet shall be worshipped and to him, as he is above everything, He has given the leadership of the Church. 23. Which is his body and the embodiment of the One who embodies all.
