1 For this reason I, Paul, athe prisoner of bChrist Jesus cfor the sake of you dGentiles—
2 if indeed you have heard of the astewardship of God’s grace which was given to me for you;
3 athat bby revelation there was cmade known to me dthe mystery, eas I wrote before in brief.
4 1By referring to this, when you read you can understand amy insight 2into the bmystery of Christ,
5 which in other generations was not made known to the sons of men, as it has now been revealed to His holy aapostles and prophets 1in the Spirit;
6 to be specific, that the Gentiles are afellow heirs and bfellow members of the body, and cfellow partakers of the promise in dChrist Jesus through the gospel,
7 aof which I was made a bminister, according to the gift of cGod’s grace which was given to me daccording to the working of His power.
8 To me, athe very least of all 1saints, this grace was given, to bpreach to the Gentiles the unfathomable criches of Christ,
9 and to 1bring to light what is the administration of the amystery which for ages has been bhidden in God cwho created all things;
10 so that the manifold awisdom of God might now be bmade known through the church to the crulers and the authorities in dthe heavenly places.
