13 But now in (A)Christ Jesus you who (B)formerly were (C)far off [a]have (D)been brought near [b](E)by the blood of Christ. 14 For He Himself is (F)our peace, (G)who made both groups into one and broke down the [c]barrier of the dividing wall, 15 [d]by (H)abolishing in His flesh the enmity, which is (I)the Law of commandments contained in ordinances, so that in Himself He might [e](J)make the two into (K)one new man, thus establishing (L)peace, 16 and might (M)reconcile them both in (N)one body to God through the cross, [f]by it having (O)put to death the enmity. 17 And (P)He came and preached (Q)peace to you who were (R)far away, and peace to those who were (S)near; 18 for through Him we both have (T)our access in (U)one Spirit to (V)the Father. 19 So then you are no longer (W)strangers and aliens, but you are (X)fellow citizens with the [g]saints, and are of (Y)God’s household, 20 having been (Z)built on (AA)the foundation of (AB)the apostles and prophets, (AC)Christ Jesus Himself being the (AD)corner stone, 21 (AE)in whom the whole building, being fitted together, is growing into (AF)a holy [h]temple in the Lord, 22 in whom you also are being (AG)built together into a (AH)dwelling of God in the Spirit.
