14 For He Himself is (A)our peace, (B)who made both groups into one and broke down the [a]barrier of the dividing wall, 15 [b]by (C)abolishing [c]in His flesh the hostility, which is (D)the Law composed of commandments expressed in ordinances, so that in Himself He might [d](E)make the two (F)one new person, in this way establishing (G)peace; 16 and that He might (H)reconcile them both in (I)one body to God through the cross, [e]by it having (J)put to death the hostility. 17 And (K)He came and preached (L)peace to you who were (M)far away, and peace to those who were (N)near; 18 for through Him we both have (O)our access in (P)one Spirit to (Q)the Father.
