11 We have also received an inheritance[a] in Him, predestined(A) according to the purpose of the One who works out everything in agreement with the decision of His will, 12 so that we who had already put our hope(B) in the Messiah might bring praise to His glory.(C)

13 When you heard the message of truth,(D) the gospel of your salvation, and when you believed in Him, you were also sealed with the promised Holy Spirit.(E) 14 He is the down payment(F) of our inheritance, for the redemption of the possession,[b] to the praise of His glory.
