Appreciation of the Mystery

14 For this reason I bow my knees to the rFather 6of our Lord Jesus Christ, 15 from whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named, 16 that He would grant you, saccording to the riches of His glory, tto be strengthened with might through His Spirit in uthe inner man, 17 vthat Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, wbeing rooted and grounded in love, 18 xmay be able to comprehend with all the saints ywhat is the width and length and depth and height—19 to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled zwith all the fullness of God.

20 Now ato Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly babove all that we ask or think, caccording to the power that works in us, 21 dto Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.


About The New King James Version

The New King James Version is a total update of the 1611 King James Version, also known as the "Authorized Version." Every attempt has been made to maintain the beauty of the original version while updating the English grammar to contemporary style and usage. The result is much better "readability." It is noteworthy that the NKJV is one of the few modern translations still based on the "Western" or "Byzantine" manuscript tradition. This makes the New King James Version an invaluable aid to comparative English Bible study.
