Ephesians 1:11-14 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)
Inheritance Through the Spirit. 11 In him we were also chosen, destined in accord with the purpose of the One who accomplishes all things according to the intention of his will, 12 so that we might exist for the praise of his glory, we who first hoped[a] in Christ. 13 In him you also, who have heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation, and have believed in him, were sealed[b] with the promised holy Spirit, 14 which is the first installment[c] of our inheritance toward redemption as God’s possession, to the praise of his glory.
