1:21 above every principality and power and virtue and dominion, and above every name that is given, not only in this age, but even in the future age.
1:22 And he has subjected all things under his feet, and he has made him the head over the entire Church,
1:23 which is his body and which is the fullness of him who accomplishes everything in everyone.

Efeziërs 2

2:1 En jim wienen ienris dea yn dyn sûnden en strafbere,
2:2 wêryn jo wannele yn tiden ferline, neffens de leeftyd fan dizze wrâld, neffens de foarst fan 'e macht fan dizze sky, de geast, dy't no wurket yn 'e soannen fan wantrouwen.
2:3 En wy ek wiene allegearre mûnling yn dizze dingen, yn tiden ferline, troch de begearten fan ús fleis, aktearjen neffens de wil fan it fleis en it neffens ús eigen tinzen. En dus we wienen, fan natuere, bern fen grime, sels as de oaren.
2:4 dochs noch, god, dy't ryk is yn barmhertichheit, om 'e wille fan syn tige grutte leafde, dêr't er ús ús,
2:5 sels as wy wiene dea yn ús sûnden, hat ferlibbene ús byinoar yn Kristus, troch wa syn genede binne jimme bihâlden.
2:6 En Hy hat ús mei him opwekke tegearre, en hy hat feroarsake ús te sitten byinoar yn 'e himel, yn Kristus Jezus,
2:7 sadat dat er werjaan, yn 'e leeftiden gau te oankomme, de oerfloedige rykdom fan syn genede, troch syn goedens nei ús yn Kristus Jezus.
2:8 Want troch genede, datst rêde bist, troch fertrouwen. En dit is net fan jimme sels, hwent it is in jefte fan God.
2:9 En dit is net fan wurken, sadat gjin ien kin gloarje.
2:10 Hwent wy binne syn handiwork, skepen yn Christus Jezus foar de goede wirken, dy't God hat taret en wêryn wy moatte rinne.
2:11 Dêrom, be mindful that, yn tiden ferline, you were Gentiles in the flesh, and that you were called uncircumcised by those who are called circumcised in the flesh, something done by man,
2:12 en dat jimme wiene, doedestiids, sûnder Kristus, wêzen frjemd oan 'e wei fan it libben fan Israel, being besikers fan it testamint, gjin hope hawwende fan de belofte, en wêzen sûnder God yn dizze wrâld.
2:13 mar no, yn Kristus Jezus, jo, dy't yn tiden foarby fier fuort, binne brocht tichtby troch it bloed fan Kristus.
2:14 Hwent Hy is ús frede. Hy makke de twa yn ien, troch it opheffen fan de tuskenlizzende muorre fan skieding, fan opposysje, troch syn fleis,
2:15 útmûnet de wet fan 'e geboaden by riedsbeslút, sadat er miskien meidwaan dizze twa, yn himsels, yn ien nij minske, making frede
2:16 en fermoedsoenjende beide oan God, yn ien lichem, troch it krús, ferneatigjen dit ferset yn himsels.
2:17 En op oankomst, Hy evangelized frede foar jimme dy't fier fuort, en frede oan dyjingen dy't wienen tichtby.
2:18 Want troch him, wy beide ha tagong, yn de iene Geast, ta de Heit.
2:19 No, dêrom, do bist net mear besikers en nije arrivals. Ynstee, do bist boargers ûnder de hilligen yn 'e hûshâlding fan God,
2:20 hawwen is boud op it fûnemint fan 'e apostels en fen' e profeten, mei Jezus Kristus himsels as de preeminent hoekstien.
2:21 yn him, alles dat is boud wurdt framed tegearre, opgeande omheech yn in hillige timpel yn 'e Heare.
2:22 yn him, jo ek binne boud tegearre yn in bewenning fan God yn 'e Geast.

Efeziërs 3

3:1 By reason of this grace, ik, paul, am a prisoner of Jesus Christ, for the sake of you Gentiles.
3:2 no grif, jimme hawwe heard fan de tadieling fan 'e genede fan God, dy't jûn is oan my ûnder jimme:
3:3 dat, troch middel fan iepenbiering, it mystearje waard makke bekend my, krekt sa't Ik haw skreaun boppe yn in pear wurden.
3:4 Yet, by reading this closely, you might be able to understand my prudence in the mystery of Christ.
3:5 Yn oare generaasjes, dit wie ûnbekend foar de soannen fan 'e minsken, sels sa't it is no al iepenbiere oan syn hillige apostels en profeten yn 'e Geast,
3:6 sadat de heidenen soe wêze mei-erfgenamten, en fan de deselde lichem, en partners tegearre, troch syn belofte yn Kristus Jezus, troch it evangeelje.
3:7 Of dit Evangeelje, I have been made a minister, according to the gift of the grace of God, which has been given to me by means of the operation of his virtue.
3:8 Although I am the least of all the saints, I have been given this grace: to evangelize among the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ,
3:9 and to enlighten everyone concerning the dispensation of the mystery, hidden before the ages in God who created all things,
3:10 so that the manifold wisdom of God may become well-known to the principalities and powers in the heavens, through the Church,
3:11 according to that timeless purpose, which he has formed in Christ Jesus our Lord.
3:12 In him we trust, and so we approach with confidence, through his faith.
3:13 Dêrom, I ask you not to be weakened by my tribulations on your behalf; for this is your glory.
3:14 By reason of this grace, I bend my knees to the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,
3:15 from whom all paternity in heaven and on earth takes its name.
3:16 And I ask him to grant to you to be strengthened in virtue by his Spirit, in accord with the wealth of his glory, in the inner man,
3:17 so that Christ may live in your hearts through a faith rooted in, and founded on, charity.
3:18 So may you be able to embrace, with all the saints, what is the width and length and height and depth
3:19 of the charity of Christ, and even be able to know that which surpasses all knowledge, so that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.
3:20 Now to him who is able to do all things, more abundantly than we could ever ask or understand, by means of the virtue which is at work in us:
3:21 to him be glory, in the Church and in Christ Jesus, throughout every generation, forever and ever. amen.

Efeziërs 4

4:1 Ensa, as a prisoner in the Lord, I beg you to walk in a manner worthy of the vocation to which you have been called:
4:2 with all humility and meekness, with patience, supporting one another in charity.
4:3 Be anxious to preserve the unity of the Spirit within the bonds of peace.
4:4 One body and one Spirit: to this you have been called by the one hope of your calling:
4:5 one Lord, one faith, one baptism,
4:6 one God and Father of all, who is over all, and through all, and in us all.
4:7 Yet to each one of us there has been given grace according to the measure allotted by Christ.
4:8 Dêrom, hy seit: “Ascending on high, he took captivity itself captive; he gave gifts to men.”
4:9 Now that he has ascended, what is left except for him also to descended, first to the lower parts of the earth?
4:10 He who descended is the same one who also ascended above all the heavens, so that he might fulfill everything.
4:11 And the same one granted that some would be Apostles, and some Prophets, yet truly others evangelists, and others pastors and teachers,
4:12 for the sake of the perfection of the saints, by the work of the ministry, in the edification of the body of Christ,
4:13 until we all meet in the unity of faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God, as a perfect man, in the measure of the age of the fullness of Christ.
4:14 So may we then no longer be little children, disturbed and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by the wickedness of men, and by the craftiness which deceives unto error.
4:15 Ynstee, acting according to truth in charity, we should increase in everything, in him who is the head, Christ himself.
4:16 Want yn Him, the whole body is joined closely together, by every underlying joint, through the function allotted to each part, bringing improvement to the body, toward its edification in charity.
4:17 Ensa, I say this, and I testify in the Lord: that from now on you should walk, not as the Gentiles also walk, in the vanity of their mind,
4:18 having their intellect obscured, being alienated from the life of God, through the ignorance that is within them, because of the blindness of their hearts.
4:19 Such as these, despairing, have given themselves over to sexual immorality, carrying out every impurity with rapacity.
4:20 But this is not what you have learned in Christ.
4:21 foar seker, you have listened to him, and you have been instructed in him, according to the truth that is in Jesus:
4:22 to set aside your earlier behavior, the former man, who was corrupted, by means of desire, unto error,
4:23 and so be renewed in the spirit of your mind,
4:24 and so put on the new man, wa, in accord with God, is created in justice and in the holiness of truth.
4:25 Dêrom, setting aside lying, speak the truth, each one with his neighbor. For we are all part of one another.
4:26 “Be angry, but do not be willing to sin.” Do not let the sun set over your anger.
4:27 Provide no place for the devil.
4:28 Whoever was stealing, let him now not steal, but rather let him labor, working with his hands, doing what is good, so that he may have something to distribute to those who suffer need.
4:29 Let no evil words proceed from your mouth, but only what is good, toward the edification of faith, so as to bestow grace upon those who listen.
4:30 And do not be willing to grieve the Holy Spirit of God, in whom you have been sealed, unto the day of redemption.
4:31 Let all bitterness and anger and indignation and outcry and blasphemy be taken away from you, along with all malice.
4:32 And be kind and merciful to one another, forgiving one another, just as God has forgiven you in Christ.

Efeziërs 5

5:1 Dêrom, as most beloved sons, be imitators of God.
5:2 And walk in love, just as Christ also loved us and delivered himself for us, as an oblation and a sacrifice to God, with a fragrance of sweetness.
5:3 But let not any kind of fornication, or impurity, or rapacity so much as be named among you, just as is worthy of the saints,
5:4 nor any indecent, or foolish, or abusive talk, for this is without purpose; mar ynstee, give thanks.
5:5 For know and understand this: no one who is a fornicator, or lustful, or rapacious (for these are a kind of service to idols) holds an inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God.
5:6 Let no one seduce you with empty words. For because of these things, the wrath of God was sent upon the sons of unbelief.
5:7 Dêrom, do not choose to become participants with them.
5:8 For you were darkness, yn tiden ferline, but now you are light, in the Lord. sa doe, walk as sons of the light.
5:9 For the fruit of the light is in all goodness and justice and truth,
5:10 affirming what is well-pleasing to God.
5:11 Ensa, have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, mar ynstee, refute them.
5:12 For the things that are done by them in secret are shameful, even to mention.
5:13 But all things that are disputed are made manifest by the light. For all that is made manifest is light.
5:14 Dêrom, it is said: “You who are sleeping: awaken, and rise up from the dead, and so shall the Christ enlighten you.”
5:15 Ensa, bruorren, see to it that you walk cautiously, not like the foolish,
5:16 but like the wise: atoning for this age, because this is an evil time.
5:17 Om dizze reden, do not choose to be imprudent. Ynstee, understand what is the will of God.
5:18 And do not choose to be inebriated by wine, for this is self-indulgence. Ynstee, be filled with the Holy Spirit,
5:19 speaking among yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual canticles, singing and reciting psalms to the Lord in your hearts,
5:20 giving thanks always for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, to God the Father.
5:21 Be subject to one another in the fear of Christ.
5:22 Wives should be submissive to their husbands, as to the Lord.
5:23 For the husband is the head of the wife, just as Christ is the head of the Church. He is the Savior of his body.
5:24 Dêrom, just as the Church is subject to Christ, so also should wives be subject to their husbands in all things.
5:25 Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the Church and handed himself over for her,
5:26 so that he might sanctify her, washing her clean by water and the Word of life,
5:27 so that he might offer her to himself as a glorious Church, not having any spot or wrinkle or any such thing, so that she would be holy and immaculate.
5:28 Sa, te, husbands should love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself.
5:29 For no man has ever hated his own flesh, but instead he nourishes and cherishes it, as Christ also does to the Church.
5:30 For we are a part of his body, of his flesh and of his bones.
5:31 “For this reason, in man scil litte efter syn heit en mem, en hy scil oanhingje syn frou; and the two shall be as one flesh.”
5:32 This is a great Sacrament. And I am speaking in Christ and in the Church.
5:33 yet echt, each and every one of you should love his wife as himself. And a wife should fear her husband.

Efeziërs 6

6:1 Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is just.
6:2 Honor your father and your mother. This is the first commandment with a promise:
6:3 dat it dy goed gean mei dy, and so that you may have a long life upon the earth.
6:4 En do, fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but educate them with the discipline and correction of the Lord.
6:5 Servants, be obedient to your lords according to the flesh, with fear and trembling, in the simplicity of your heart, as to Christ.
6:6 Do not serve only when seen, as if to please men, but act as servants of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart.
6:7 Serve with good will, as to the Lord, and not to men.
6:8 For you know that whatever good each one will do, the same will he receive from the Lord, whether he is servant or free.
6:9 En do, lords, act similarly toward them, setting aside threats, knowing that the Lord of both you and them is in heaven. For with him there is no favoritism toward anyone.
6:10 Concerning the rest, bruorren, be strengthened in the Lord, by the power of his virtue.
6:11 Be clothed in the armor of God, so that you may be able to stand against the treachery of the devil.
6:12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against principalities and powers, against the directors of this world of darkness, against the spirits of wickedness in high places.
6:13 Dêrom, take up the armor of God, so that you may be able to withstand the evil day and remain perfect in all things.
6:14 Dêrom, stand firm, having been girded about your waist with truth, and having been clothed with the breastplate of justice,
6:15 and having feet which have been shod by the preparation of the Gospel of peace.
6:16 Yn alle dingen, take up the shield of faith, with which you may be able to extinguish all the fiery darts of the most wicked one.
6:17 And take up the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit (which is the Word of God).
6:18 Through every kind of prayer and supplication, pray at all times in spirit, and so be vigilant with every kind of earnest supplication, for all the saints,
6:19 and also for me, so that words may be given to me, as I open my mouth with faith to make known the mystery of the Gospel,
6:20 in such a manner that I may dare to speak exactly as I ought to speak. For I act as an ambassador in chains for the Gospel.
6:21 No, so that you also may know the things that concern me and what I am doing, Tychicus, a most beloved brother and a faithful minister in the Lord, will make known everything to you.
6:22 I have sent him to you for this very reason, so that you may know the things that concern us, and so that he may console your hearts.
6:23 Peace to the brothers, and charity with faith, from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
6:24 May grace be with all those who love our Lord Jesus Christ, unto incorruption. amen.
