|Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavens, in Christ,
|just as he chose us in him before the foundation of the world, so that we would be holy and immaculate in his sight, in charity.
|He has predestined us to adoption as sons, through Jesus Christ, in himself, according to the purpose of his will,
|for the praise of the glory of his grace, with which he has gifted us in his beloved Son.
|In him, we have redemption through his blood: the remission of sins in accord with the riches of his grace,
|which is superabundant in us, with all wisdom and prudence.
|So does he make known to us the mystery of his will, which he has set forth in Christ, in a manner well-pleasing to him,
|in the dispensation of the fullness of time, so as to renew in Christ everything that exists through him in heaven and on earth.
|In him, we too are called to our portion, having been predestined in accord with the plan of the One who accomplishes all things by the counsel of his will.
|So may we be, to the praise of his glory, we who have hoped beforehand in Christ.
|In him, you also, after you heard and believed the Word of truth, which is the Gospel of your salvation, were sealed with the Holy Spirit of the Promise.
|He is the pledge of our inheritance, unto the acquisition of redemption, to the praise of his glory.
