Ephesians 4:2–13

Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one anotherv in love.w Make every effort to keep the unityx of the Spirit through the bond of peace.y There is one bodyz and one Spirit,a just as you were called to one hope when you were calledb; one Lord,c one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all,d who is over all and through all and in all.e

But to each one of usf graceg has been givenh as Christ apportioned it. This is why ita says:

“When he ascended on high,

he took many captivesi

and gave gifts to his people.”b j
