15 For this reason I too, (A)having heard of the faith in the Lord Jesus which exists among you and [a]your love for (B)all the [b]saints, 16 (C)do not cease giving thanks for you, (D)while making mention of you in my prayers; 17 that the (E)God of our Lord Jesus Christ, (F)the Father of glory, may give you a spirit of (G)wisdom and of (H)revelation in the [c]knowledge of Him. 18 I pray that (I)the eyes of your heart [d]may be enlightened, so that you will know what is the (J)hope of His (K)calling, what are (L)the riches of the glory of (M)His inheritance in (N)the [e]saints, 19 and what is the [f]boundless greatness of His power toward us who believe. (O)These are in accordance with the working of the (P)strength of His might 20 which He brought about in Christ, when He (Q)raised Him from the dead and (R)seated Him at His right hand in (S)the heavenly places, 21 far above (T)all rule and authority and power and dominion, and every (U)name that is named, not only in (V)this age but also in the one to come. 22 And He (W)put all things in subjection under His feet, and made Him (X)head over all things to the church, 23 which is His (Y)body, the (Z)fullness of Him who (AA)fills (AB)all in all.

Made Alive in Christ

And [g]you [h]were (AC)dead [i]in your offenses and sins, in which you (AD)previously walked according to the [j]course of (AE)this world, according to (AF)the prince of the power of the air, of the spirit that is now working in (AG)the [k]sons of disobedience. Among them [l]we too all (AH)previously lived in (AI)the lusts of our flesh, [m]indulging the desires of the flesh and of the [n]mind, and were (AJ)by nature (AK)children of wrath, (AL)just as the rest. But God, being (AM)rich in mercy, because of (AN)His great love with which He loved us, even when we were (AO)dead [o]in our wrongdoings, made us alive together [p]with Christ ((AP)by grace you have been saved), and (AQ)raised us up with Him, and (AR)seated us with Him in (AS)the heavenly places in (AT)Christ Jesus, so that in the ages to come He might show the [q]boundless (AU)riches of His grace in (AV)kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. For (AW)by grace you have been saved (AX)through faith; and [r]this is not of yourselves, it is (AY)the gift of God; (AZ)not a result of works, so that (BA)no one may boast. 10 For we are His workmanship, (BB)created in (BC)Christ Jesus for (BD)good works, which God (BE)prepared beforehand so that we would (BF)walk in them.
