Eph'siyim 2

Ephesians 2

1  And you were dead in trespasses and sins, 

2  in which you once walked according to the course of this world, according to the ruler of the authority of the air, of the spirit that is now working in the sons of disobedience, 

3  among whom also we all once lived in the lusts of our flesh, doing the desires of the flesh and of the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, as also the rest.

4  But יהוה, who is rich in compassion, because of His great love with which He loved us,

5  even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Mashiaḥ - by favour you have been saved -

6  and raised us up together, and made us sit together in the shamayim in Mashiaḥ יהושע,

7  in order to show in the coming ages the exceeding riches of His favour in kindness toward us in Mashiaḥ יהושע.

8  For by favour you have been saved, through belief, and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of Elohim,

9  it is not by works, so that no one should boast.

10  For we are His workmanship, created in Mashiaḥ יהושע unto good works, which יהוה prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.

11  Therefore remember that you, once gentiles in the flesh, who are called ‘the uncircumcision' by what is called ‘the circumcision' made in the flesh by hands, 

12  that at that time you were without Mashiaḥ, excluded from the citizenship of Yisra'ĕl and strangers from the Covenants of promise, having no expectation and without Elohim in the world.

13  But now in Mashiaḥ יהושע you who once were far off have been brought near by the blood of ha'Mashiaḥ.

14  For He is our peace, who has made both one, and having broken down the partition of the barrier,

15  having abolished in His flesh the enmity - the Torah of the commands in dogma - so as to create in Himself one renewed man from the two, thus making peace,

16  and to completely restore to favour both of them unto Elohim in one body through the stake, having destroyed the enmity by it.

17  And having come, He brought as Good News peace to you who were far off, and peace to those near.

18  Because through Him we both have access to the Father by one Ruaḥ

19  So then you are no longer strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the qodeshim and members of the household of Elohim, 

20  having been built upon the foundation of the emissaries and neḇi'im, יהושע ha'Mashiaḥ Himself being chief corner-stone,

21  in whom all the building, being joined together, grows into a qodesh Mishkan in יהוה,

22  in whom you also are being built together into a dwelling of Elohim in the Ruaḥ.
