(D)In love [b]He (E)predestined us to (F)adoption as sons and daughters through Jesus Christ to Himself, (G)according to the good pleasure of His will, (H)to the praise of the glory of His grace, with which He favored us in (I)the Beloved. (J)In [c]Him we have (K)redemption (L)through His blood, the (M)forgiveness of our wrongdoings, according to (N)the riches of His grace which He [d]lavished on [e]us. In all wisdom and insight He [f](O)made known to us the mystery of His will, (P)according to His good pleasure which He (Q)set forth in Him, 10 regarding His plan of (R)the fullness of the times, (S)to bring all things together in Christ, things [g]in the heavens and things on the earth. 11 [h]In Him we also (T)have obtained an inheritance, having been (U)predestined (V)according to the purpose of Him who works all things (W)in accordance with the plan of His will, 12 to the end that [i]we who were the first to hope in the [j]Christ would be (X)to the praise of His glory. 13 In [k]Him, [l]you also, after listening to (Y)the message of truth, the gospel of your salvation—having also [m]believed, you were (Z)sealed in [n]Him with (AA)the Holy Spirit of the promise, 14 who is a (AB)first installment of (AC)our inheritance, in regard to the (AD)redemption of (AE)God’s own possession, (AF)to the praise of His glory.
