10 [a]That in the dispensation of the fullness of the times, he might [b]gather together in one all things, both which are in heaven, and which are in earth, even in Christ:
11 [c]In whom also we are chosen when we were predestinated according to the purpose of him, which worketh [d]all things after the counsel of his own will,
12 That we, which [e]first trusted in Christ, should be unto the praise of his glory:
Ephesians 1:10The Father exhibiteth and gave Christ, who is the head of all the elect unto the world, at that time which was convenient, according as he most wisely disposed all times from everlasting. And Christ is he in whom all the elect from the beginning of the world, (otherwise wandering and separated from God) are gathered together: of which some were then in heaven when he came into the earth, (to wit, such as by faith in him to come, were gathered together) and others being found upon the earth, were gathered together of him, and the rest are daily gathered together.
Ephesians 1:10The faithful are said to be gathered together in Christ, because they are joined together with him through faith, and become as it were one man.
Ephesians 1:11He applieth severally the benefit of vocation to the believing Jews, going back to the very fountain, that even they also may not attribute their salvation neither to themselves, nor to their stock, nor to any other thing, but to the only grace and mercy of God, both because they were called, and also because they were first called.
Ephesians 1:11All things are attributed to the grace of God without exception, and yet for all that, we are not stocks, for he giveth us grace both to will and to be able to do those things that are good, Phil. 2:13.
