Unchecked Copy BoxEph 2:1 - and *you*, being dead in your offences and sins --
Unchecked Copy BoxEph 2:2 - in which ye once walked according to the age of this world, according to the ruler of the authority of the air, the spirit who now works in the sons of disobedience:
Unchecked Copy BoxEph 2:3 - among whom *we* also all once had our conversation in the lusts of our flesh, doing what the flesh and the thoughts willed to do, and were children, by nature, of wrath, even as the rest:
Unchecked Copy BoxEph 2:4 - but God, being rich in mercy, because of his great love wherewith he loved us,
Unchecked Copy BoxEph 2:5 - (we too being dead in offences,) has quickened us with the Christ, (ye are saved by grace,)
Unchecked Copy BoxEph 2:6 - and has raised us up together, and has made us sit down together in the heavenlies in Christ Jesus,
Unchecked Copy BoxEph 2:7 - that he might display in the coming ages the surpassing riches of his grace in kindness towards us in Christ Jesus.
Unchecked Copy BoxEph 2:8 - For ye are saved by grace, through faith; and this not of yourselves; it is God's gift:
Unchecked Copy BoxEph 2:9 - not on the principle of works, that no one might boast.
Unchecked Copy BoxEph 2:10 - For we are his workmanship, having been created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God has before prepared that we should walk in them.
Unchecked Copy BoxEph 2:11 - Wherefore remember that *ye*, once nations in the flesh, who are called uncircumcision by that called circumcision in the flesh done with the hand;
Unchecked Copy BoxEph 2:12 - that ye were at that time without Christ, aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers to the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world:
Unchecked Copy BoxEph 2:13 - but now in Christ Jesus *ye* who once were afar off are become nigh by the blood of the Christ.
Unchecked Copy BoxEph 2:14 - For *he* is our peace, who has made both one, and has broken down the middle wall of enclosure,
Unchecked Copy BoxEph 2:15 - having annulled the enmity in his flesh, the law of commandments in ordinances, that he might form the two in himself into one new man, making peace;
Unchecked Copy BoxEph 2:16 - and might reconcile both in one body to God by the cross, having by it slain the enmity;
Unchecked Copy BoxEph 2:17 - and, coming, he has preached the glad tidings of peace to you who were afar off, and the glad tidings of peace to those who were nigh.
Unchecked Copy BoxEph 2:18 - For through him we have both access by one Spirit to the Father.
Unchecked Copy BoxEph 2:19 - So then ye are no longer strangers and foreigners, but ye are fellow-citizens of the saints, and of the household of God,
Unchecked Copy BoxEph 2:20 - being built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the corner-stone,
Unchecked Copy BoxEph 2:21 - in whom all the building fitted together increases to a holy temple in the Lord;
Unchecked Copy BoxEph 2:22 - in whom *ye* also are built together for a habitation of God in the Spirit.

In 1867, John Nelson Darby translated the New Testament from Greek into English. Further revisions were done in 1872 and 1884. Darby’s work was first published as The Holy Scriptures: A New Translation from the Original Languages by J. N. Darby. After Darby’s death in 1882, some of his students worked together to produce the complete Darby Bible based on the Masoretic Hebrew text, Darby’s German (Elberfelder), and the French (Pau) translations. In 1890, the first complete Darby Bible was published in English. This translation of the Bible is in the public domain.
