15 Therefore I also, aafter I heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for all the saints, 16 bdo not cease to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers: 17 that cthe God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, dmay give to you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him, 18 ethe eyes of your 6understanding being enlightened; that you may know what is fthe hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, 19 and what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe, gaccording to the working of His mighty power 20 which He worked in Christ when hHe raised Him from the dead and iseated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places, 21 jfar above all kprincipality 7and 8power and 9might and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in that which is to come.
22 And lHe put all things under His feet, and gave Him mto be head over all things to the church, 23 nwhich is His body, othe fullness of Him pwho fills all in all.
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.
