Ephesians 1:15-23 Wycliffe Bible (WYC)

15 Therefore and I hearing your faith, that is in Christ Jesus, and the love into all saints,

16 cease not to do thankings for you, making mind of you in my prayers;

17 that God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, give to you the spirit of wisdom and of revelation, into the knowing of him;

18 and the eyes of your heart lightened, that ye know, which is the hope of his calling, and which be the riches of the glory of his heritage in saints; [the eyes of your heart enlightened, that ye know, which is the hope of his calling, and which the riches of the glory of his heritage in saints;]

19 and which is the excellent greatness of his virtue into us that have believed, by the working of the might of his virtue, [and which is the over-seeming greatness of his virtue into us that have believed, after the working of the might of his virtue,]

20 which he wrought in Christ, raising him from death [raising him from dead], and setting him on his right half in heavenly things,

21 above each principat, and potentate, and virtue, and domination, and above each name that is named, not only in this world, but also in the world to coming [and each name that is named, not only in this world, but also in the world to come];

22 and made all things subject under his feet, and gave him to be head over all the church,

23 that is the body of him, and the plenty of him, which is all things in all things fulfilled.

Ephesians 1:15-23 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

15 [a]Therefore also after that I heard of the faith, which ye have in the Lord Jesus, and love toward all the Saints,

16 I cease not to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers,

17 [b]That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, that Father of [c]glory, might give unto you the Spirit of wisdom, and revelation through the [d]knowledge of him,

18 That the eyes of your understanding may be lightened, that ye may know what the [e]hope is of his calling, and what the riches of his glorious inheritance is in the Saints,

19 [f]And what is the exceeding greatness of his power toward us, which believe, according to the working of his mighty power,

20 [g]Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his [h]right hand in the heavenly places,

21 Far above all principality, and power, and might, and domination, and every [i]Name, that is named, not in this world only, but also in that that is to come,

22 [j]And hath made all things subject under his feet, and hath given him over all things to be the [k]head to the Church,

23 Which is his body, even the [l]fullness of him that filleth all in all things.

Footnotes:

  1. Ephesians 1:15 He returneth to the former gratulation, concluding two things together of those things that went before: the first is, that all good things come to us from God the Father in Christ, and by Christ, that for them he may be praised of us. The second is that all those things (which he bringeth to two heads, to wit, faith and charity) are increased in us by certain degrees, so that we must desire increase of his grace from whom we have the beginning, and of whom we hope for the end.
  2. Ephesians 1:17 The causes of faith are God the Father lightening our minds with his holy spirit, that we may embrace Christ opened unto us in the Gospel, to the obtaining of everlasting life, and the setting forth of God’s glory.
  3. Ephesians 1:17 Full of majesty.
  4. Ephesians 1:17 For it is not enough for us to have known God once, but we must know him every day more and more.
  5. Ephesians 1:18 What blessings they are which he calleth you to hope for whom he calleth to Christ.
  6. Ephesians 1:19 The excellency of faith is declared by the effects, because the mighty power of God is set forth and shown therein.
  7. Ephesians 1:20 The Apostle willeth us to behold in our most glorious Christ with the eye of faith, that most excellent power and glory of God, whereof all the faithful are partakers, although it be as yet very dark in us, by reason of the ignominy of the cross and the weakness of the flesh.
  8. Ephesians 1:20 To be set on God’s right hand, is to be partaker of the sovereignty which he hath over all creatures.
  9. Ephesians 1:21 Everything whatsoever it be, or above all things be they of never such power or excellency.
  10. Ephesians 1:22 That we should not think that that excellent glory of Christ is a thing wherewith we have nought to do, he witnesseth, that he was appointed of God the Father the head of all the Church, and therefore the body must be joined to his head, which otherwise should be a maimed thing without the members: which notwithstanding is not of necessity (seeing that the Church is rather quickeneth and sustained by the only virtue of Christ, so far off is it, that he needeth the fullness thereof) but of the infinite goodwill and pleasure of God, who vouchsafeth to join us to his Son.
  11. Ephesians 1:22 Insomuch that there is nothing but is subject to him.
  12. Ephesians 1:23 For the love of Christ is so great toward the Church, that though he do fully satisfy all with all things, yet he esteemeth himself but a maimed and unperfect head, unless he have the Church joined to him as his body.

Ephesians 1:15-23 Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)

15 Wherefore I also, after I heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus, and love unto all the saints, 16 cease not to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers; 17 that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him: 18 the eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints, 19 and what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power, 20 which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places, 21 far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come: 22 and hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church, 23 which is his body, the fulness of him that filleth all in all.
