以弗所书 1

1我是奉上帝旨意做基督耶稣使徒的保罗,写信给以弗所忠于基督耶稣的众圣徒。

愿我们的父上帝和主耶稣基督赐给你们恩典和平安!

基督徒的属灵恩福

赞美我们主耶稣基督的父上帝!祂在基督里赐给了我们天上各样属灵的恩福。 早在创造世界以前,祂已经在基督里拣选了我们,使我们在祂眼中成为圣洁无瑕的人。

上帝因为爱我们,就按照祂自己美好的旨意,预定我们借着耶稣基督得到做祂儿女的名分。 我们赞美祂奇妙无比的恩典,这恩典是上帝借着祂的爱子赐给我们的。 我们借着祂爱子的血蒙救赎,过犯得到赦免,这都是出于祂的洪恩。 上帝用各种智慧和聪明把这恩典丰丰富富地赐给我们, 照着祂在基督里所定的美好计划叫我们知道祂旨意的奥秘, 10 等所定的时候一到,叫天地万物一同归在基督的名下。

11 我们也在基督里被拣选成为祂的子民。这都是按自己旨意行万事的上帝预先定下的计划, 12 好让我们这些首先在基督里得到盼望的人都来颂赞祂的荣耀。

13 你们听过真理之道,就是那使你们得救的福音,而且也信了基督。你们既然信祂,就领受了上帝应许赐下的圣灵为印记。 14 圣灵是我们领受产业的担保,直到上帝的子民得到救赎,使祂的荣耀受到颂赞。

保罗的祷告

15 我听到你们对主耶稣的信心和对众圣徒的爱心后, 16 不断地为你们感谢上帝,祷告的时候常常提到你们。 17 我求我们主耶稣基督的上帝——荣耀的父把赐智慧和启示的灵给你们,好使你们更深地认识祂。 18 我也求上帝照亮你们心中的眼睛,使你们知道祂的呼召给你们带来了何等的盼望,祂应许赐给众圣徒的产业有何等丰富的荣耀, 19 并且祂在我们这些信的人身上所运行的能力是何等浩大。 20 上帝曾用这大能使基督从死里复活,使基督在天上坐在自己右边, 21 远远超越今生永世所有执政的、掌权的、有能力的、做主宰的和一切的权势。 22 祂又使万物降服在基督脚下,使基督为教会做万物的元首。 23 教会是基督的身体,蕴涵着那无所不在、充满万物者的丰盛。

Ephesians 1

The Blessings of Redemption

1Paul, an apostle of Christ Jesus [a]by the will of God,

To the [b]saints who are [c]at Ephesus and who are faithful in Christ Jesus: Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

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, just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we would be holy and blameless before [d]Him. In love [e]He predestined us to adoption as sons through Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the [f]kind intention of His will, to the praise of the glory of His grace, which He freely bestowed on us in the Beloved. In [g]Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of His grace which He [h]lavished on [i]us. In all wisdom and insight He [j]made known to us the mystery of His will, according to His [k]kind intention which He purposed in Him 10 with a view to an administration [l]suitable to the fullness of the times, that is, the summing up of all things in Christ, things [m]in the heavens and things on the earth. In Him 11 [n]also we [o]have obtained an inheritance, having been predestined according to His purpose who works all things after the counsel of His will, 12 to the end that we who were the first to hope in [p]Christ would be to the praise of His glory. 13 In [q]Him, you also, after listening to the message of truth, the gospel of your salvation—having also [r]believed, you were sealed in [s]Him with the Holy Spirit of promise, 14 who is [t]given as a pledge of our inheritance, with a view to the redemption of God’s own possession, to the praise of His glory.

15 For this reason I too, having heard of the faith in the Lord Jesus which exists among you and [u]your love for all the [v]saints, 16 do not cease giving thanks for you, while making mention of you in my prayers; 17 that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you a spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the [w]knowledge of Him. 18 I pray that the eyes of your heart [x]may be enlightened, so that you will know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the [y]saints, 19 and what is the surpassing greatness of His power toward us who believe. These are in accordance with the working of the strength of His might 20 which He brought about in Christ, when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places, 21 far above all rule and authority and power and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in the one to come. 22 And He put all things in subjection under His feet, and gave Him as head over all things to the church, 23 which is His body, the fullness of Him who fills all in all.
