(A)In him we have (B)redemption (C)through his blood, (D)the forgiveness of our trespasses, (E)according to the riches of his grace, which he lavished upon us, in all wisdom and insight (F)making known[a] to us the mystery of his will, (G)according to his purpose, which he (H)set forth in Christ 10 as a plan for (I)the fullness of time, (J)to unite all things in him, things in heaven and things on earth.

11 In him we have obtained (K)an inheritance, (L)having been predestined (M)according to the purpose of him who works all things according to (N)the counsel of his will, 12 so that we who were the first to hope in Christ might be (O)to the praise of his glory. 13 In him you also, when you heard (P)the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation, and believed in him, (Q)were sealed with the (R)promised Holy Spirit, 14 who is (S)the guarantee[b] of our (T)inheritance until (U)we acquire (V)possession of it,[c] (W)to the praise of his glory.
