whom he also called, even us, not only from among the Jews, but also from among the gentiles? as he also saith in Hosea, "I will call that my people, which was not my people; and her beloved, that was not beloved. And it shall be, that in the place where it was said to them, Ye are not my people, there shall they be called sons of the living God."



There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye were called in one hope of your calling; one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all, who is over all, and through all, and in all.







that they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me and I in thee, that they also may be in us, that the world may believe that thou didst send me. And the glory which thou hast given me, I have given them, that they may be one, even as we are one; I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one, that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me.

For as in one body we have many members, and the members have not all the same office, so we, though many, form one body in Christ, and each of us is a member of it in common with the rest.


For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of the body, being many, are one body, so it is with Christ. For by one Spirit we were all baptized into one body, whether Jews or Greeks, whether slaves or freemen; and were all made to drink one Spirit. For the body also is not one member, but many. read more.
If the foot say, Because I am not a hand, I am not of the body, is it for this reason not of the body? And if the ear say, Because I am not an eye, I am not of the body, is it for this reason not of the body? If the whole body were an eye, where would be the hearing? If the whole were hearing, where would be the smelling? But as it is, God set the members every one of them in the body, as it pleased him. And if they were all one member, where would be the body? But now there are, indeed, many members, but one body. And the eye cannot say to the hand, I have no need of thee; nor, again, the head to the feet, I have no need of you. Nay, still more, those members of the body which seem to be weak, are necessary; and what we think to be less honorable parts of the body, upon these we bestow more abundant honor; and our unseemly parts have more abundant seemliness; while our seemly parts have no need. But God so put the body together, as to give special honor to that part which lacked, that there might be no schism in the body, but that the members should have the same care one for another. And so if one member suffereth, all the members suffer with it; or if one member is honored, all the members rejoice with it. Now ye are the body of Christ, and members individually. And

For ye are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus; for as many of you as were baptized into Christ, did put on Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is no male and female; for ye are all one in Christ Jesus;


For it is he who is our peace, who made both one, and broke down the middle wall of partition between us, that is, the enmity; having abolished in his flesh the law of commandments contained in ordinances; that he might create of the two one new man in himself, thus making peace, and might reconcile both to God in one body by the cross, having slain on it the enmity. read more.
And he came and brought the glad tidings of peace to you who were afar off, and of peace to those that were near; for through him we both have our access in one Spirit to the Father. So then ye are no longer strangers and foreigners, but are fellowcitizens with the saints, and members of the household of God,

in whom all the building, fitly framed together, is growing into a holy temple in the Lord;


for the perfecting of the saints for the work of ministration, for the building up of the body of Christ; till we all attain to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a fullgrown man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ;








And the disciples came and said to him, Why dost thou speak to them in parables? He answered and said, Because to you it hath been given to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven; but to them it hath not been given.

And when he was in private, they who were about him, with the twelve, asked him about the parables. And he said to them, To you hath been given the mystery of the kingdom of God; but to them, who are without, all things are done in parables; t

And his disciples asked him what this parable meant. And he said, To you it hath been given to know the mysteries of the kingdom of God; but to others [these things are spoken] in parables; that while seeing they may not see, and while hearing they may not understand.

Then he poureth water into the basin, and began to wash the disciples feet, and to wipe them with the towel wherewith he was girded.

Peter saith to him, Thou shalt never wash my feet. Jesus answered him, If I wash thee not, 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 [I bend my knees], I Paul, the prisoner of Christ Jesus for you gentiles; if, indeed, ye heard of the dispensation of the grace of God which was given me toward you, that by revelation the mystery was made known to me, as I wrote before in few words, read more.
whereby, when ye read, ye may perceive my insight into the mystery of Christ; which in other generations was not made known to the sons of men, as it hath now been revealed to his holy apostles and prophets by the Spirit; that the gentiles are fellowheirs, and of the same body, and partakers with us of the promise in Christ Jesus through the gospel;



And the Lord said to him, Arise, and go into the street called Straight, and inquire in the house of Judas for one called Saul, of Tarsus; for lo! he prayeth, and hath seen a man, named Ananias, coming in and putting his hand on him, that he might receive sight. But Ananias answered, Lord, I have heard from many about this man, how great evils he hath done to thy saints at Jerusalem. read more.
And here he hath authority from the chief priests to bind all that call on thy name. But the Lord said to him, Go; for this man is to me a chosen vessel, to bear my name before nations, and kings, and the sons of Israel.

And as I was going to Damascus on this business, with authority and a commission from the chief priests, at midday, on the road, O king, I saw a light from heaven above the brightness of the sun, shining around me and those who were journeying with me. And when we had all fallen to the earth, I heard a voice speaking to me, and saying in the Hebrew tongue, Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me? It is hard for thee to kick against the goads. read more.
And I said, Who art thou, Lord? And the Lord said, I am Jesus, whom thou persecutest. But arise and stand upon thy feet; for I have appeared to thee for this purpose, to prepare thee as a minister and a witness both of the things which thou sawest, and of those on account of which I will appear to thee; delivering thee from the people, and from the gentiles, to whom I send thee, to open their eyes that they may turn from darkness to light and from the power of Satan to God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and an inheritance among the sanctified, by faith in me.

For I am speaking to you gentiles; inasmuch as I am the apostle of the gentiles, I magnify my office,

For ye have heard of my conduct formerly in Judaism; that beyond measure I persecuted the church of God, and was destroying it, and made progress in Judaism beyond many of the same age with me in my nation, being more exceedingly zealous for the traditions of my fathers. But when it pleased him who set me apart from my very birth, and called me through his grace, read more.

whereby, when ye read, ye may perceive my insight into the mystery of Christ; which in other generations was not made known to the sons of men, as it hath now been revealed to his holy apostles and prophets by the Spirit; that the gentiles are fellowheirs, and of the same body, and partakers with us of the promise in Christ Jesus through the gospel; of which I became a minister according to the gift of the grace of God, given to me according to the effectual working of his power. To me, who am less than the least of all saints, was this grace given, to make known among the gentiles the glad tidings of the unsearchable riches of Christ,





for as many of you as were baptized into Christ, did put on Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is no male and female; for ye are all one in Christ Jesus; and if ye belong to Christ, then are ye Abrahams offspring, heirs according to the promise.

The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are children of God; and if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and fellowheirs with Christ; if indeed we are suffering with him, that we may also be glorified with him.

So also we, when we were children, were in bondage under the rudiments of the world; but when the fullness of the time came, God sent forth his Son, born of a woman, born under the Law, to redeem those under the Law, that we might be adopted as sons. read more.
And to show that ye are sons, God sent forth the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, crying, Abba, Father! So then thou art no longer a bondservant, but a son; and if a son, then an heir through God.

On this account we also, from the day we heard of it, cease not to pray for you, and to ask that ye may be filled with the knowledge of his will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding; that ye may walk worthily of the Lord so as to please him in all things, bearing fruit in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God; endued with all power according to the might of his glory unto all patience and longsuffering with joy; read more.
giving thanks to the Father, who enabled us to share in the inheritance of the saints in the light;

For we ourselves also were once foolish, disobedient, going astray, slaves to divers lusts and pleasures, living in malice and envy, hateful, hating one another. But when the kindness and love for men of God our Saviour appeared, not by works of righteousness which we did, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the bath of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Spirit, read more.
which he poured out upon us richly through Jesus Christ our Saviour, that having been accepted as righteous by his grace, we might become heirs according to the hope of everlasting life.

And this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God, nor doth corruption inherit incorruption. Behold, I tell you a mystery. We shall not all sleep; but we shall all be changed, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. read more.
For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then will be brought to pass that which is written: "Death is swallowed up in victory." "Where, O death, is thy sting? Where, O death, 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 do speak wisdom among the perfect; not, however, the wisdom of this world, nor of the rulers of this world, who are coming to nought; but we speak Gods wisdom in a mystery, the hidden wisdom, which God determined on before the world was, for our glory; which none of the rulers of this world comprehended; for had they comprehended it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory;

the mystery which hath been hidden for ages and generations, but hath been now revealed to his saints; to whom it was the will of God to 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 who is able to establish you according to my gospel and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery which for eternal ages was unrevealed, but is now made manifest, and through the writings of the prophets, by the command of the everlasting God, is made known to all the nations to bring them to obedience to the faith,

but in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he is about to sound, then should be finished the mystery of God, as he declared the glad tidings to his servants the prophets.


It is for chastening that ye endure; God dealeth with you as with sons; for what son is he, whom the father chasteneth not? But if ye are without chastening, of which all have been made partakers, then are ye bastards and not sons. Furthermore, we were chastened by the fathers of our flesh, and we gave them reverence; shall we not much rather be in subjection to the Father of spirits, and live? read more.
For they indeed for a few days chastened us, according as it seemed good to them; but he for our profit, that we might be partakers of his holiness.

I say then, Hath God cast off his people? Far be it I For I myself am an Israelite, of the seed of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin. God hath not cast off his people, which he foreknew. Do ye not know what the Scripture saith in the passage concerning Elijah? how he pleadeth to God against Israel: "Lord, they have killed thy prophets, they have dug down thine altars; and I am left alone, and they are seeking my life." read more.
But what saith the answer of God to him? "I have reserved to myself seven thousand men, who have not bowed the knee to Baal." In the same way then at this present time also there is a remnant, according to the election of grace. And if it is by grace, it is no longer on account of works; otherwise grace ceaseth to be grace; but if it is of works, there is then no grace; otherwise work ceaseth to be work. How is it then? What Israel seeketh after, that Israel did not obtain; but the elect obtained it, and the rest were hardened; as it is written: "God gave them a spirit of slumber, eyes that were not to see, and ears that were not to hear, unto this day." And David saith, "Let their table become a snare, and a trap, and a stumblingblock, and a recompense to them; let their eyes be darkened, that they may not see; and bow down their back alway." I say then, Did they stumble in order to fall? God forbid! But by their offence salvation is come to the gentiles to excite them to emulation. But if their offence is the riches of the world, and their loss the riches of the gentiles, how much more will their fullness be? For I am speaking to you gentiles; inasmuch as I am the apostle of the gentiles, I magnify my office, that I may, if possible, excite to emulation those who are my flesh, and may save some of them. For if the rejection of them is the reconciliation of the world, what will the reception of them be, but life from the dead? And if the first portion of the dough is holy, so also will be the lump; and if the root is holy, so will be the branches. And if some of the branches have been broken off, and thou, a wild olive, hast been grafted in among them, and become a partaker with them of the root and fatness of the olivetree,

Wherefore, my beloved, flee from idolatry. I speak as to wise men, judge ye what I say. The cup of blessing which we bless, is it not a partaking of the blood of Christ? the loaf which we break, is it not a partaking of the body of Christ? read more.
For we, the many, are one loaf, one body; for we all share in that one loaf. Look at Israel by natural descent. Have not those who eat of the sacrifices, communion with the altar?

On this account we also, from the day we heard of it, cease not to pray for you, and to ask that ye may be filled with the knowledge of his will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding; that ye may walk worthily of the Lord so as to please him in all things, bearing fruit in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God; endued with all power according to the might of his glory unto all patience and longsuffering with joy; read more.
giving thanks to the Father, who enabled us to share in the inheritance of the saints in the light; who rescued us from the empire of darkness, and transferred us into the kingdom of his beloved Son; in whom we have our redemption, the forgiveness of our sins;

Let all who are under the yoke as bondservants count their own masters worthy of all honor, that the name of God and his doctrine be not blasphemed. And they that have believing masters, let them not despise them because they are brethren; but rather do them service, because they who receive the benefit are faithful and beloved. These things teach and exhort.

Beloved, be not surprised at the fiery trial which is taking place among you to prove you, as though a strange thing were befalling you; but, in so far as ye share in Christs sufferings, rejoice; that also at the manifestation of his glory ye may rejoice with exceeding joy. If ye are reproached for the name of Christ, happy are ye for the Spirit of glory and of God resteth upon you.

Symeon Peter, a servant and apostle of Jesus Christ, to those who have obtained like precious faith with us through the righteousness of our God, and the Saviour Jesus Christ: Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord. Seeing that his Divine power hath given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness; read more.
through which he hath given us exceedingly great and precious promises, that by these ye may become partakers of the Divine nature, having escaped from the corruption that is in the world through lust;



Paul, an apostle of Christ Jesus by the will of God, according to the promise of life which is in Christ Jesus,





Now to him who is able to establish you according to my gospel and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery which for eternal ages was unrevealed, but is now made manifest, and through the writings of the prophets, by the command of the everlasting God, is made known to all the nations to bring them to obedience to the faith,

Concerning which salvation the prophets sought earnestly and searched earnestly, who prophesied of the grace that was to come to you; searching what or what manner of time the Spirit of Christ which was in them signified, when it testified beforehand the sufferings to come upon Christ, and the glories that were to follow; to whom it was revealed, that not to themselves, but to you, they were ministering the things, which have now been announced to you by them that have brought the glad tidings to you by the Holy Spirit sent down from heaven; which things angels desire to look into.
