1898 Young's Literal Translation (YLT)
5 The hidden mystery, 6 that the Gentiles should be saved, 3 was made known to Paul by revelation: 8 and to him was that grace given, that 9 he should preach it. 13 He desireth them not to faint for his tribulation, 14 and prayeth, 19 that they may perceive the great love of Christ toward them.
3:1 ¶ For this cause, I Paul, the prisoner of Christ Jesus for you the nations,
3:2 if, indeed, ye did hear of the dispensation of the grace of God that was given to me in regard to you,
3:3 that by revelation He made known to me the secret, according as I wrote before in few [words]
3:4 in regard to which ye are able, reading [it], to understand my knowledge in the secret of the Christ,
3:5 which in other generations was not made known to the sons of men, as it was now revealed to His holy apostles and prophets in the Spirit
3:6 that the nations be fellow-heirs, and of the same body, and partakers of His promise in the Christ, through the good news,
3:7 of which I became a ministrant, according to the gift of the grace of God that was given to me, according to the working of His power;
3:8 to methe less than the least of all the saintswas given this grace, among the nations to proclaim good newsthe untraceable riches of the Christ,
3:9 and to cause all to see what [is] the fellowship of the secret that hath been hid from the ages in God, who the all things did create by Jesus Christ,
3:10 that there might be made known now to the principalities and the authorities in the heavenly [places], through the assembly, the manifold wisdom of God,
3:11 according to a purpose of the ages, which He made in Christ Jesus our Lord,
3:12 in whom we have the freedom and the access in confidence through the faith of him,
3:13 wherefore, I ask [you] not to faint in my tribulations for you, which is your glory.
3:14 For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,
3:15 of whom the whole family in the heavens and on earth is named,
3:16 that He may give to you, according to the riches of His glory, with might to be strengthened through His Spirit, in regard to the inner man,
3:17 that the Christ may dwell through the faith in your hearts, in love having been rooted and founded,
3:18 that ye may be in strength to comprehend, with all the saints, what [is] the breadth, and length, and depth, and height,
3:19 to know also the love of the Christ that is exceeding the knowledge, that ye may be filledto all the fulness of God;
3:20 and to Him who is able above all things to do exceeding abundantly what we ask or think, according to the power that is working in us,
3:21 to Him [is] the glory in the assembly in Christ Jesus, to all the generations of the age of the ages. Amen.
