13 But now in Christ Jesus you who once were (A)far off have been brought near (B)by the blood of Christ. 14 For (C)he himself is our peace, (D)who has made us both one and has broken down (E)in his flesh the dividing wall of hostility 15 by abolishing the law of commandments expressed in (F)ordinances, that he might create in himself one (G)new man in place of the two, so making peace, 16 and might (H)reconcile us both to God in one body through the cross, thereby killing the hostility. 17 And he came and (I)preached peace to you who were (J)far off and peace to those who were (K)near. 18 For (L)through him we both have (M)access in (N)one Spirit to the Father. 19 So then you are no longer (O)strangers and aliens,[a] but you are (P)fellow citizens with the saints and (Q)members of the household of God, 20 (R)built on the foundation of the (S)apostles and prophets, (T)Christ Jesus himself being (U)the cornerstone, 21 (V)in whom the whole structure, being joined together, grows into (W)a holy temple in the Lord. 22 In him (X)you also are being built together (Y)into a dwelling place for God by[b] the Spirit.
