The mystery hidden from former ages was discovered to the apostle, to be imparted to the Gentiles. He prays that they may be strengthened in God.
 For this cause, I Paul, the prisoner of Jesus Christ, for you Gentiles;
 If yet you have heard of the dispensation of the grace of God which is given me towards you:
 How that, according to revelation, the mystery has been made known to me, as I have written above in a few words;
 As you reading, may understand my knowledge in the mystery of Christ,
 Which in other generations was not known to the sons of men, as it is now revealed to his holy apostles and prophets in the Spirit:
 That the Gentiles should be fellow heirs, and of the same body, and co-partners of his promise in Christ Jesus, by the gospel:
 Of which I am made a minister, according to the gift of the grace of God, which is given to me according to the operation of his power:
 To me, the least of all the saints, is given this grace, to preach among the Gentiles, the unsearchable riches of Christ,
 And to enlighten all men, that they may see what is the dispensation of the mystery which hath been hidden from eternity in God, who created all things:
 That the manifold wisdom of God may be made known to the principalities and powers in heavenly places through the church,
 According to the eternal purpose, which he made, in Christ Jesus our Lord:
 In whom we have boldness and access with confidence by the faith of him.
