Ephesians 2:11-18 Wycliffe Bible (WYC)

11 For which thing be ye mindful, that sometime ye were heathen in flesh, which were said prepuce, from that that is said circumcision made by hand in flesh [from that that is said circumcision in flesh made by hand];

12 and ye were in that time without Christ, aliened from the living of Israel, and guests of the testaments[a], not having hope of promise, and without God in this world.

13 But now in Christ Jesus ye that were sometime far, be made nigh in the blood of Christ.

14 For he is our peace, that made both one, and unbinding the middle wall of a wall without mortar,

15 enmities in his flesh; and voided the law of commandments by dooms [voiding the law of commandments by dooms], that he make two in himself into a new man, making peace,

16 to reconcile both in one body to God by the cross [that he reconcile both in one body to God by the cross], slaying the enmities in himself.

17 And he coming preached peace to you that were far, and peace to them that were nigh;

18 for by him we both have nigh coming in one Spirit to the Father.

Ephesians 2:11-18 New Matthew Bible (NMB)

11 And so remember that you (being in time past Gentiles in the flesh, and called uncircumcision by those who are called the circumcision in the flesh, which circumcision is made by hands) – 12 remember, I say, that you were at that time without Christ, and were reputed aliens from the community of Israel, and were strangers to the testaments of promise, and had no hope, and were without God in this world. 13 But now, in Christ Jesus, you who a while ago were afar off, are made near by the blood of Christ.

14 For he is our peace, who has made of both one, and has broken down the wall that was a partition between us, 15 and has also put away through his flesh the cause of hatred (that is to say, the law of observances contained in the written law), to make of the two one new man in himself, so making peace, 16 and to reconcile both to God in one body through his cross. And he slew hatred thereby, 17 and came and preached peace to you who were afar off and to those that were near. 18 For through him we both have an open way in, in one Spirit, to the Father.

Ephesians 2:11-18 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

11 [a]Wherefore remember that ye being in time past Gentiles in the flesh, and [b]called uncircumcision of them, which are [c]called circumcision in the flesh, made with hands,

12 That ye were, I say, at that time [d]without Christ, and were [e]aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and were strangers from the covenants of promise, and had no hope, and were without God in the world.

13 [f]But now in Christ Jesus, ye which once were far off, are made near by the blood of Christ.

14 [g]For he is our peace, which hath made of both one, and hath broken the stop of the partition wall,

15 In abrogating through his flesh the hatred, that is, the Law of commandments which standeth in ordinances, for to make of twain one new man in himself, so making peace,

16 And that he might reconcile both unto God in [h]one body by his cross, and [i]slay hatred thereby,

17 [j]And came, and preached peace to you which were afar off, and to them that were near.

18 For [k]through him we both have an entrance unto the Father by one Spirit.

  1. Ephesians 2:11 Applying the former doctrine to the Gentiles, he showeth that they were not only as the Jews, by nature, but also after an especial sort, strangers and without God: and therefore they ought so much the rather remember that same so great a benefit of God.
  2. Ephesians 2:11 You were called no otherwise than Gentiles, that all the world might witness of your uncleanness.
  3. Ephesians 2:11 Of the Jews which were known from you by the mark of circumcision, the mark of the covenant.
  4. Ephesians 2:12 He beginneth first with Christ, who was the end of all the promises.
  5. Ephesians 2:12 You had no right or title, to the common wealth of Israel.
  6. Ephesians 2:13 Christ is the only bond of the Jews and Gentiles, whereby they be reconciled to God.
  7. Ephesians 2:14 As by the ceremonies and worship appointed by the Law, the Jews were divided from the Gentiles, so now Christ, having broken down the partition wall, joineth them both together, both in himself, and betwixt themselves, and to God. Whereby it followeth, that whosoever established the ceremonies of the Law, maketh the grace of Christ void and of none effect.
  8. Ephesians 2:16 He alludeth to the sacrifices of the Law, which represented that true and only sacrifice.
  9. Ephesians 2:16 For he destroyed death by death, and fastened it as it were to the cross.
  10. Ephesians 2:17 The preaching of the Gospel is an effectual instrument of this grace, common as well to the Jews as to the Gentiles.
  11. Ephesians 2:18 Christ is the gate as it were, by whom we come to the Father, and the holy Ghost is as it were our lodes man who leadeth us.

Ephesians 2:11-18 Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)

11 Wherefore remember, that ye being in time past Gentiles in the flesh, who are called Uncircumcision by that which is called the Circumcision in the flesh made by hands; 12 that at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world: 13 but now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ. 14 For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us; 15 having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace; 16 and that he might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby: 17 and came and preached peace to you which were afar off, and to them that were nigh. 18 for through him we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father.
