But God, being (A)rich in mercy, because of (B)His great love with which He loved us, even when we were (C)dead [a]in our wrongdoings, made us alive together [b]with Christ ((D)by grace you have been saved), and (E)raised us up with Him, and (F)seated us with Him in (G)the heavenly places in (H)Christ Jesus, so that in the ages to come He might show the [c]boundless (I)riches of His grace in (J)kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. For (K)by grace you have been saved (L)through faith; and [d]this is not of yourselves, it is (M)the gift of God; (N)not a result of works, so that (O)no one may boast.
