Ephesians 2:8–22

For rby grace are ye saved sthrough faith; and that not of yourselves: tit is the gift of God: uNot of works, wlest any man should boast. 10 For we are xhis workmanship, ycreated in Christ Jesus unto zgood works, awhich God hath before ||ordained aathat we should walk in them.

11 Wherefore remember, bthat ye being in ctime past Gentiles in the flesh, who are called Uncircumcision by that which is called dthe Circumcision in the flesh made by hands; 12 That at that time ye were without Christ, ebeing aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and fstrangers from gthe covenants of promise, hhaving no hope, and without God in the world: 13 But now in Christ Jesus iye who csometimes were jfar off are made nigh kby the blood of Christ. 14 For lhe is our peace, mwho hath made both one, and hath nbroken down the middle wall of partition between us; 15 oHaving abolished pin his flesh ppthe enmity, even the law of commandments contained in oqordinances; for to make in himself of twain one rnew man, so lmaking peace; 16 And that he might sreconcile both unto God in ssone body by the cross, othaving slain pthe enmity ||uthereby: 17 And came and wpreached peace to you which were jafar off, and to xthem that were nigh. 18 For ythrough him we both zhave access aby one Spirit unto the Father. 19 Now therefore ye are no more bcstrangers and cdforeigners, but efellowcitizens with the saints, and fof the household of God; 20 And are gbuilt upon the foundation of the hiapostles and iprophets, kJesus Christ himself being lthe chief corner stone; 21 In whom all the building mfitly framed together groweth unto nan holy temple in the Lord: 22 In whom oye also are builded together pfor an habitation of God through the Spirit.
