3:1  For this cause I Paul, the prisoner of Christ Jesus for you Gentiles,
3:2  If that ordering of the grace of God has come to your knowledge, which was given to me for you,
3:3  How by revelation the secret was made clear to me, as I said before in a short letter,
3:4  By the reading of which you will be clear about my knowledge of the secret of Christ;
3:5  Which in other generations was not given to the sons of men, but the revelation of it has now been made to his holy Apostles and prophets in the Spirit;
3:6  Which is that the Gentiles have a part in the heritage, and in the same body, and in the same hope in Christ through the good news,
3:7  Of which I was made a preacher, through that grace of God which was given to me in the measure of the working of his power.
3:8  To me, who am less than the least of all the saints, was this grace given, so that I might make clear to the Gentiles the good news of the unending wealth of Christ:
3:9  And make all men see what is the ordering of the secret which from the first has been kept in God who made all things;
3:10  So that now to the rulers and the authorities in the heavens might be made clear through the church the wide-shining wisdom of God,
3:11  Which is seen in his eternal purpose in Christ Jesus our Lord:
3:12  By whom we come near to God without fear through faith in him.
3:13  For this reason it is my prayer that you may not become feeble because of my troubles for you, which are your glory.
3:14  For this cause I go down on my knees before the Father,
3:15  From whom every family in heaven and on earth is named,
3:16  That in the wealth of his glory he would make you strong with power through his Spirit in your hearts;
3:17  So that Christ may have his place in your hearts through faith; and that you, being rooted and based in love,
3:18  May have strength to see with all the saints how wide and long and high and deep it is,
3:19  And to have knowledge of the love of Christ which is outside all knowledge, so that you may be made complete as God himself is complete.
3:20  Now to him who is able to do in full measure more than all our desires or thoughts, through the power which is working in us,
3:21  To him be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations for ever and ever. So be it.
