19 So then you are no longer (A)strangers and aliens, but you are (B)fellow citizens with the [a]saints, and are of (C)God’s household, 20 having been (D)built on (E)the foundation of (F)the apostles and prophets, (G)Christ Jesus Himself being the (H)corner stone, 21 (I)in whom the whole building, being fitted together, is growing into (J)a holy [b]temple in the Lord, 22 in whom you also are being (K)built together into a (L)dwelling of God in the Spirit.

to be specific, that the Gentiles are (A)fellow heirs and (B)fellow members of the body, and (C)fellow partakers of the promise in (D)Christ Jesus through the gospel, (E)of which I was made a (F)minister, according to the gift of (G)God’s grace which was given to me (H)according to the working of His power. To me, (I)the very least of all [a]saints, this grace was given, to (J)preach to the Gentiles the unfathomable (K)riches of Christ, and to [b]bring to light what is the administration of the (L)mystery which for ages has been (M)hidden in God (N)who created all things; 10 so that the manifold (O)wisdom of God might now be (P)made known through the church to the (Q)rulers and the authorities in (R)the heavenly places.
