Why does it have strange spelling?
1 By comparing what we were by 3 nature, with what we are 5 by grace: 10 He declareth, that wee are made for good workes; and 13 beeing brought neere by Christ, should not liue as 11 Gentiles, and 12 forreiners in time past, but as 19 citizens with the Saints, and the family of God.
1And you hath hee quickned who were dead in trespasses, and sinnes,
2Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the aire, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience,
3Among whom also we all had our conuersation in times past, in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh, and of the minde, and were by nature the children of wrath, euen as others:3
4But God who is rich in mercie, for his great loue wherewith hee loued vs,
5Euen when wee were dead in sinnes, hath quickned vs together with Christ, (by grace ye are saued)
6And hath raised vs vp together, and made vs sit together in heauenly places in Christ Iesus:
7That in the ages to come, hee might shew the exceeding riches of his grace, in his kindenesse towards vs, through Christ Iesus.
8For by grace are ye saued, through faith, and that not of your selues: it is the gift of God:
9Not of workes, lest any man should boast.
10For wee are his workemanship, created in Christ Iesus vnto good workes, which God hath before ordeined, that we should walke in them.10
11Wherefore remember that ye being in time passed Gentiles in the flesh, who are called vncircumcision by that which is called the Circumcision in the flesh made by hands,
12That at that time yee were without Christ, being aliens from the common wealth of Israel, and strangers from the couenants of promise, hauing no hope, & without God in the world.
13But now in Christ Iesus, ye who sometimes were far off, are made nigh by the blood of Christ.
14For hee is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken downe the middle wall of partition betweene vs:
15Hauing abolished in his flesh the enmitie, euen the Lawe of Commandements conteined in Ordinances, for to make in himselfe, of twaine, one newe man, so making peace.
16And that he might reconcile both vnto God in one body by the crosse, hauing slaine the enmitie thereby,16
17And came, and preached peace to you, which were afarre off, and to them that were nigh.
18For through him wee both haue an accesse by one Spirit vnto the Father.
19Now therefore yee are no more strangers and forreiners; but fellow citizens with the Saints, and of the houshold of God,
20And are built vpon the foundation of the Apostles and Prophets, Iesus Christ himselfe being the chiefe corner stone,
21In whom all the building fitly framed together, groweth vnto an holy Temple in the Lord:
22In whom you also are builded together for an habitation of God thorow the Spirit.
