Ephesians 1:3-12New American Standard Bible (NASB)
3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ,4 just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we would be holy and blameless before [a]Him. In love5 [b]He predestined us to adoption as sons and daughters through Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will,6 to the praise of the glory of His grace, with which He favored us in the Beloved.7 In [c]Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of our wrongdoings, according to the riches of His grace8 which He [d]lavished on [e]us. In all wisdom and insight9 He [f]made known to us the mystery of His will, according to His good pleasure which He set forth in Him,10 regarding His plan of the fullness of the times, to bring all things together in Christ, things [g]in the heavens and things on the earth.11 [h]In Him we also have obtained an inheritance, having been predestined according to the purpose of Him who works all things in accordance with the plan of His will,12 to the end that [i]we who were the first to hope in the [j]Christ would be to the praise of His glory.
