Epistle to the Ephesians 3, 8-12

8 Unto 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,
9 and to enlighten all what [is] the administration of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world having been hidden in GOD, the One who created all things, [a]
10 with the intent that now unto the rulers and authorities [b] in heavenly places might be known through the Church the manifold Wisdom of GOD,
11 according to the eternal [c] purpose which He hath purposed in the Messiah Jesus our Lord,
12 in whom we have frankness and access in confidence by the faith in Him. [d]


[a] Many translation in the verse 9 states: “who created all things by Jesus Christ”, but the name of Jesus is never mentioned in the original ancient Greek Bible (some new translation put it in square brackets).

[b] The ancient Greek word ἐξουσίαις, can also be translated with “power”.

[c] αἰώνων lit. “unto the ages of ages” trans. il Latin “In sæcula sæculorum”.

[d] The Greek word παρρησίαν may have more than one interpretation.
