11 Therefore remember that aformerly byou, the Gentiles in the flesh, who are called “cUncircumcision” by the so-called “cCircumcision,” which is performed in the flesh by human hands—
12 remember that you were at that time separate from Christ, 1aexcluded from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers to bthe covenants of promise, having cno hope and dwithout God in the world.
13 But now in aChrist Jesus you who bformerly were cfar off 1have cbeen brought near 2dby the blood of Christ.
14 For He Himself is aour peace, bwho made both groups into one and broke down the 1barrier of the dividing wall,
15 1by aabolishing in His flesh the enmity, which is bthe Law of commandments contained in ordinances, so that in Himself He might 2cmake the two into done new man, thus establishing epeace,
16 and might areconcile them both in bone body to God through the cross, 1by it having cput to death the enmity.
