Efesim 1 – איגרת שאול אל האפסים א


1Pavlos, a Shali’akh of Yeshua HaMashi’akh, by the will of Elohim, to those who are in Efesos, the k’doshim, those who trust in Yeshua HaMashi’akh: 2Shalom Aleikhem, and compassion from Elohim Avinu, and from Adoneinu Yeshua HaMashi’akh.

3Barukh Elohim, HaAv of Adoneinu Yeshua HaMashi’akh, who has blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heaven through Mashi’akh. 4Since, as from the beginning, He has chosen us through Him before the foundation of the world, that we may become consecrated and without blemish before Him, in love, as at the first, for Himself.  5And He marked us for Him, and appointed us to be sons through Yeshua HaMashi’akh, as was the pleasure of His will, 6to the praise of the glory of His compassion that He has poured upon us by His beloved one.  7In Him we have redemption, and in His blood, forgiveness of sins, according to the richness of His compassion 8which has abounded in us in all wisdom and spiritual understanding. 9And He has made known to us the Sod of His will, that He has ordained from the very beginning, to work through it. 10He did so in the stewardship of the fullness of times, that all things might be made new in heaven and on earth through Mashi’akh, 11by whom we have been chosen.  And He marked us from the beginning, so He would carry out everything according to the good judgment of His will, 12that we should become the first to trust in Mashi’akh, to His honor and His glory. 13In Him you also have heard D’var HaEmet, which is HaB’sorah for your life; in Him you have trusted, so you are sealed with The Ru’akh HaKodesh that was promised, 14which is the pledge of our inheritance for the redemption of those who live, and for the glory of His honor.

15Therefore, I also, since I heard of your absolute trust in Adoneinu Yeshua HaMashi’akh and your love toward all the k’doshim,  16never cease to give thanks for your sakes and to mention you in my prayers, 17so that the Elohim of Adoneinu Yeshua HaMashi’akh, Avi HaKavod, may give you the Ru’akh Khakhma and revelation in the knowledge of Him, 18and so that the eyes of your understanding may be enlightened, that you may know what is the hope of His calling, and what are the glorious riches of His inheritance in the k’doshim. 19And know what is the exceeding greatness of His power in us as the result of the things in which we trust, according to the efficiency of His mighty power, 20which He wrought through Mashi’akh when He raised Him from the dead and set Him at His own right hand in heaven, 21far above all authorities, and dominions, and forces, and rulers, and every name that is named, not only in Olam HaZeh, but also in the time to come. 22And He has put all things under His feet, and made Him who is above all things the head of the assembly, 23which is His Guf, and the fullness of Him who fulfills all in all.
