Now to him that is able to stablish you according to my gospel, and the preaching of Jesus Christ, agreeable to the revelation of the mystery; which was concealed from all former ages,





wherein when ye read, ye may be able to perceive my knowledge in the mystery of Christ,




And when his disciples came, they said to him, Why speakest thou to them in parables? And he answered and said unto them, Because to you it is given to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given.

But when they were alone, those who were about him with the twelve, asked him the meaning of the parable. And he said to them, To you it is given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God; but to those who are without, all things are in parables:

Then his disciples asked him, saying. What might this parable mean? And he said, To you it is given to know the mysteries of the kingdom of God; but to the rest in parables: that seeing they may not perceive, and hearing may not comprehend.

Then he poureth water into a bason, and began to wash the disciples' feet, and to wipe them with the towel with which he was begirt. Then cometh he to Simon Peter: and he saith to him, Lord, dost thou wash my feet? Jesus answered and said to him, What I am doing thou knowest not now; but thou shalt know hereafter. read more.
Peter saith to him, Thou shalt never wash my feet: no, never. Jesus answered him, Except I wash thee, thou hast no part with me. Simon Peter saith to him, Lord, not my feet only, but also my hands and my head.

FOR this cause [am] I Paul, the prisoner of Jesus Christ for you Gentiles, if so be, that ye have heard of the dispensation of the grace of God which was given to me for you: that by revelation he made known unto me the mystery, as I wrote unto you before briefly; read more.
wherein when ye read, ye may be able to perceive my knowledge in the mystery of Christ, which in other generations was not made known to the children of men, as it hath been now revealed to his holy apostles and prophets by the Spirit; that the Gentiles should be co-heirs, and of the same body, and sharers with them of his promise in Christ by the Gospel:



Then the Lord said to him, Arise, go into the street called Strait, and inquire at the house of Judas for one named Saul a man of Tarsus: for, behold, he is praying, and hath seen in a vision a man named Ananias coming to him, and laying his hand upon him, that he may recover his sight. But Ananias answered, Lord, I have heard from many of this man, how many evils he hath inflicted on thy saints at Jerusalem: read more.
and here he hath authority from the chief priests to bind all that call upon thy name. But the Lord said unto him, Go: for this man is an elect vessel for me, to bear my name before nations, and kings, and the children of Israel:

In which pursuits, even as I was going to Damascus with authority and a commission from the chief priests, at midday, O king, I saw on the road a light from heaven, beyond the splendour of the sun, shining around myself and those who were travelling with me. And as we were all fallen prostrate on the earth, I heard a voice speaking to me, and saving in the Hebrew tongue, Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me? it is difficult for thee to kick against the goads. read more.
Then I said, Who art thou, Lord? And he replied, I am Jesus whom thou art persecuting. Notwithstanding, arise, and stand on thy feet: for to this end have I appeared to thee, to ordain thee both a minister and a witness of the things which thou hast seen, and of those which I will shew thee; delivering thee both from the people, and from the Gentiles, to whom now I send thee, to open their eyes, to convert them from darkness to light, and from the dominion of Satan unto God, that they may receive remission of sins, and an inheritance with those who are sanctified by faith which is in me.

For I address myself to you Gentiles; inasmuch as I am indeed the apostle of the Gentiles, I exalt my ministry:

For ye have heard of my former manner of life, when I professed Judaism, that in the most outrageous manner I persecuted the church of God, and wasted it: and signalized myself in Judaism above many of those of my own age among my countrymen, being more exceedingly a zealot for the traditions of my fathers. But when it pleased God, who selected me from my mother's womb, and called me by his grace, read more.
to reveal his Son in me, that I might preach the glad tidings of him to the nations, immediately I conferred not with flesh and blood,

wherein when ye read, ye may be able to perceive my knowledge in the mystery of Christ, which in other generations was not made known to the children of men, as it hath been now revealed to his holy apostles and prophets by the Spirit; that the Gentiles should be co-heirs, and of the same body, and sharers with them of his promise in Christ by the Gospel: of which I am made a minister, according to the gift of the grace of God, which was given unto me by the effectual working of his power. To me, who am less than the least of all saints, is this grace given, that I should preach among the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ;


wherein when ye read, ye may be able to perceive my knowledge in the mystery of Christ,



I AM the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman. Every branch in me that beareth no fruit, he taketh it away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he pruneth it clean, that it may bring forth more fruit. Ye are already clean through the word which I have spoken unto you. read more.
Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abide in the vine: so neither can ye, except ye abide in me. I am the vine, ye are the branches: he that abideth in me, and I in him, this person beareth much fruit: because without me ye can do nothing. If any man abide not in me, he is cast out as a branch, and withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned. If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask whatsoever ye will, and it shall be done for you. Herein is my Father glorified, that ye should bring forth much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples. Just as the Father hath loved me, I also have loved you: abide in my love. If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father's commandments, and as I abide in his love. These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy may abide in you, and your joy may be full. This is my commandment, That ye love one another, just as I have loved you. Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever things I command you. I no more call you servants; for the servant knoweth not what his master is doing: but I have called you friends because I have made known to you all things which I have heard of my Father. Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and appointed you that ye should go forth and bear fruit, and that your fruit should be permanent: that so whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, he may give it you. These things I command you, that ye love one another. If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before you. If ye were of the world, the world would love its own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have elected you out of the world, for this very cause the world hateth you. Remember the word which I spake unto you, The servant is not greater than his master. If they have persecuted me, they will persecute you also; if they have observed my words, they will observe your's also. But all these things will they do unto you for my name's sake, because they know not him that sent me. Had I not come and spoken to them, they would not have had sin: but now they have no excuse for their sin. He that hateth me hateth my Father also. If I had not done among them the works which no other ever did, they would not have had sin: but now they have both seen and hated both me and my Father. But it is in order that the word may be fulfilled which is written in their law, "They hated me without a cause." But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, the Spirit of truth, who proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me: and ye too shall bear your testimony, because ye have been with me from the beginning.

The God of our fathers hath raised up Jesus, whom ye had killed, suspending him on a tree. Him hath God exalted at his right hand to be a Prince and a Saviour, to give repentance unto Israel, and remission of sins. And we are witnesses of these things; and the Holy Ghost also, which God hath given to those who obey him.

And now behold I am going, bound by the Spirit, unto Jerusalem, not knowing what things shall there befal me: only this, that the Holy Ghost witnesseth in every city, saying, that bonds and tribulation await thee.

FOR this cause [am] I Paul, the prisoner of Jesus Christ for you Gentiles, if so be, that ye have heard of the dispensation of the grace of God which was given to me for you: that by revelation he made known unto me the mystery, as I wrote unto you before briefly; read more.
wherein when ye read, ye may be able to perceive my knowledge in the mystery of Christ, which in other generations was not made known to the children of men, as it hath been now revealed to his holy apostles and prophets by the Spirit;

Now the Holy Ghost also beareth this testimony to us: for after declaring before,

Who is he that overcometh the world, except he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God? This is he who came by water and blood, Jesus the Messiah; not by the water only, but by the water and the blood: and the Spirit is the witnessing person, because the Spirit is the truth. For they are three who bear witness in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit, and these, even the three, are one.

But this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God: neither doth corruption inherit incorruption. Behold, I shew you a mystery; we shall not indeed all sleep, but we shall all be changed, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. read more.
For that which is corruptible must put on incorruption, and that which is mortal must put on immortality. So when that which is corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and that which is mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall come to pass the saying which is written, Death is swallowed up in victory. O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, who giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.


But we speak wisdom among the perfect: yet not the wisdom of this world, nor of the rulers of this world, who are destroying themselves: but we speak the wisdom of God, which had been hid in mystery, which God predestined before the worlds were, for our glory: which none of the rulers of this world have known: for if they had known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.

to whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory:

Now to him that is able to stablish you according to my gospel, and the preaching of Jesus Christ, agreeable to the revelation of the mystery; which was concealed from all former ages, but is now made manifest, and by the prophetical scriptures, according to the commandment of the eternal God, notified to all the Gentiles to bring them to the obedience of faith:

FOR this cause [am] I Paul, the prisoner of Jesus Christ for you Gentiles, if so be, that ye have heard of the dispensation of the grace of God which was given to me for you: that by revelation he made known unto me the mystery, as I wrote unto you before briefly; read more.

To me, who am less than the least of all saints, is this grace given, that I should preach among the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ; and to make all men see what the communication of that mystery means, which was hid from the beginning in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ:

but that in the days of the blast of the seventh angel, when he shall sound, then shall the mystery of God be completed, as he spake by his own servants the prophets.


If ye patiently endure correction, God carries himself towards you as his children: for who is the son whom the father doth not correct? If then ye are without correction, of which all are partakers, then are ye bastards, and not children. If then we have had the fathers of our flesh for correctors, and reverenced them; shall we not much more be under subjection to the Father of spirits, and live? read more.
For they indeed for a few days as seemed proper to themselves corrected us; but he for our own advantage, that we might be partakers of his holiness.

FOR this cause [am] I Paul, the prisoner of Jesus Christ for you Gentiles, if so be, that ye have heard of the dispensation of the grace of God which was given to me for you: that by revelation he made known unto me the mystery, as I wrote unto you before briefly; read more.
wherein when ye read, ye may be able to perceive my knowledge in the mystery of Christ, which in other generations was not made known to the children of men, as it hath been now revealed to his holy apostles and prophets by the Spirit; that the Gentiles should be co-heirs, and of the same body, and sharers with them of his promise in Christ by the Gospel:

I SAY then, Hath God rejected his people? God forbid. For I also am an Israelite, of the seed of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin. God hath not rejected his people whom he foreknew. Know ye not what the scripture saith of Elias? how he maketh intercession with God against Israel, saying, "Lord, they have killed thy prophets, and digged down thine altars; and I only am left, and they seek my life." read more.
But what saith the oracle of God to him? "I have left to myself seven thousand men who have not bowed the knee to Baal." So then at this present time also there is a remnant according to the election of grace. But if by grace, it is no more by works: otherwise grace is no more grace. But if by works, it is no more grace: otherwise work is no more work. What then is the result? Israel hath not obtained that which it seeketh; but the election hath obtained it, and the rest were blinded, as it is written, "God hath given them the spirit of slumber, eyes that they should not see, and ears that they should not hear; unto this present day." And David saith, "Let their table be for a snare, and for a trap, and for a stumbling-block, and for a recompence unto them: let their eyes be blinded, that they may not see, and bow down their back continually." I say then, Have they stumbled so as to fall? God forbid: but by their stumbling salvation is come to the Gentiles, to provoke them to jealousy. For if their stumbling is the riches of the world, and their diminution the riches of the Gentiles; how much more their fulness? For I address myself to you Gentiles; inasmuch as I am indeed the apostle of the Gentiles, I exalt my ministry: if by any means I might provoke to jealousy my flesh, and save some of them. For if the rejection of them is the reconciliation of the world, what shall their recovery be, but life from the dead? Now if the first fruits be holy, so is the mass: and if the root be holy, so are the branches. But if some of the branches have been broken off, and thou though a wild olive hast been grafted in among them, and become a partaker of the root and fatness of the olive tree;

Wherefore, my beloved, flee from idolatry. I speak as unto wise men: judge ye what I say. The cup of blessing which we bless, is it not the communion of the blood of Christ? The bread which we break, is it not the communion of the body of Christ? read more.
For we, though many, are one loaf, one body; for we all partake of that one loaf. Behold Israel after the flesh. Are not they who eat of the sacrifices partakers with the altar?

For this cause we also from the day we heard it have not ceased praying for you, and beseeching God that ye may be filled with the knowledge of his will, in all wisdom and spiritual understanding; that ye may walk worthy of the Lord, well pleasing him in all things, in every good work fruitful, and increasing in the knowledge of God; strengthened with all might, according to his glorious power, unto all patience and long-suffering with joy; read more.
giving thanks to God, even the Father, who hath made us meet for a portion in the inheritance of the saints in light; who hath plucked us out from the dominion of darkness, and transferred us into the kingdom of the Son of his love: in whom we have redemption through his blood, and forgiveness of sins.

LET as many slaves as are under the yoke account their own masters worthy of all honour, that the name of God and the doctrine be not blasphemed. But they who have believing masters, let them not think less of them, because they are brethren; but serve them the rather, because they are faithful and beloved, who have equally partaken of the benefit. These things teach and enjoin.

Beloved, be not amazed at the fiery trial among you which is to bring you to the test, as though something strange happened to you; but as ye share in the sufferings of Christ rejoice, that at the revelation of his glory also ye may hail him with exultations. If ye suffer reproach for the name of Christ, blessed are ye; for the spirit of glory and of God resteth upon you: by them indeed he is blasphemed, but by you he is glorified.

SIMON Peter, the servant and apostle of Jesus Christ, to those who have obtained with us the same precious faith by the righteousness of our God and Saviour Jesus Christ: grace unto you and peace be multiplied through the knowledge of God, even Jesus our Lord, as his divine power hath freely given us all things tending to life and godliness, through the acknowledgment of him who hath called us to glory and fortitude: read more.
whereby superlatively great and precious promises are freely given to us: that by these ye might become partakers of a divine nature, having fled far away from the corruption that is in the world through inordinate concupiscence.??5 And for this very purpose employing the greatest diligence, lead up in the train of your faith courage; and with courage intelligence;



Now to him that is able to stablish you according to my gospel, and the preaching of Jesus Christ, agreeable to the revelation of the mystery; which was concealed from all former ages, but is now made manifest, and by the prophetical scriptures, according to the commandment of the eternal God, notified to all the Gentiles to bring them to the obedience of faith:

Concerning which salvation the prophets eagerly sought and diligently inquired, who prophesied of the grace which is come to you: investigating to what time and to what conjuncture the Spirit of Christ in them pointed, when predicting the sufferings coming upon Christ, and the glories subsequent thereto. To whom it was revealed, that not for themselves, but for us were their ministrations employed in the things which are now declared unto you by those who have preached the gospel unto you by the Holy Ghost sent down from heaven; on which things the angels bending forwards eagerly desire to gaze.
