All our good comes through Christ. He is our peace.

 1 And you, when you were dead in your offences, and sins,
Et vos, cum essetis mortui delictis et peccatis vestris,

 2 Wherein in time past you walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of this air, of the spirit that now worketh on the children of unbelief:
in quibus aliquando ambulastis secundum saeculum mundi hujus, secundum principem potestatis aeris hujus, spiritus, qui nunc operatur in filios diffidentiae,

 3 In which also we all conversed in time past, in the desires of our flesh, fulfilling the will of the flesh and of our thoughts, and were by nature children of wrath, even as the rest:
in quibus et nos omnes aliquando conversati sumus in desideriis carnis nostrae, facientes voluntatem carnis et cogitationum, et eramus natura filii irae, sicut et ceteri :

 4 But God, (who is rich in mercy,) for his exceeding charity wherewith he loved us,
Deus autem, qui dives est in misericordia, propter nimiam caritatem suam, qua dilexit nos,

 5 Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together in Christ, (by whose grace you are saved,)
et cum essemus mortui peccatis, convivificavit nos in Christo ( cujus gratia estis salvati),

 6 And hath raised us up together, and hath made us sit together in the heavenly places, through Christ Jesus.
et conresuscitavit, et consedere fecit in caelestibus in Christo Jesu :

 7 That he might shew in the ages to come the abundant riches of his grace, in his bounty towards us in Christ Jesus.
ut ostenderet in saeculis supervenientibus abundantes divitias gratiae suae, in bonitate super nos in Christo Jesu.

 8 For by grace you are saved through faith, and that not of yourselves, for it is the gift of God;
Gratia enim estis salvati per fidem, et hoc non ex vobis : Dei enim donum est :

 9 Not of works, that no man may glory.
non ex operibus, ut ne quis glorietur.

 10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus in good works, which God hath prepared that we should walk in them.
Ipsius enim sumus factura, creati in Christo Jesu in operibus bonis, quae praeparavit Deus ut in illis ambulemus.

 11 For which cause be mindful that you, being heretofore Gentiles in the flesh, who are called uncircumcision by that which is called circumcision in the flesh, made by hands;
Propter quod memores estote quod aliquando vos gentes in carne, qui dicimini praeputium ab ea quae dicitur circumcisio in carne, manu facta :

 12 That you were at that time without Christ, being aliens from the conversation of Israel, and strangers to the testament, having no hope of the promise, and without God in this world.
quia eratis illo in tempore sine Christo, alienati a conversatione Israel, et hospites testamentorum, promissionis spem non habentes, et sine Deo in hoc mundo.

 13 But now in Christ Jesus, you, who some time were afar off, are made nigh by the blood of Christ.
Nunc autem in Christo Jesu, vos, qui aliquando eratis longe, facti estis prope in sanguine Christi.

 14 For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and breaking down the middle wall of partition, the enmities in his flesh:
Ipse enim est pax nostra, qui fecit utraque unum, et medium parietem maceriae solvens, inimicitias in carne sua,

 15 Making void the law of commandments contained in decrees; that he might make the two in himself into one new man, making peace;
legem mandatorum decretis evacuans, ut duos condat in semetipso in unum novum hominem, faciens pacem :

 16 And might reconcile both to God in one body by the cross, killing the enmities in himself.
et reconciliet ambos in uno corpore, Deo per crucem, interficiens inimicitias in semetipso.

 17 And coming, he preached peace to you that were afar off, and peace to them that were nigh.
Et veniens evangelizavit pacem vobis, qui longe fuistis, et pacem iis, qui prope.

 18 For by him we have access both in one Spirit to the Father.
Quoniam per ipsum habemus accessum ambo in uno Spiritu ad Patrem.

 19 Now therefore you are no more strangers and foreigners; but you are fellow citizens with the saints, and the domestics of God,
Ergo jam non estis hospites, et advenae : sed estis cives sanctorum, et domestici Dei,

 20 Built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone:
superaedificati super fundamentum apostolorum, et prophetarum, ipso summo angulari lapide Christo Jesu :

 21 In whom all the building, being framed together, groweth up into an holy temple in the Lord.
in quo omnis aedificatio constructa crescit in templum sanctum in Domino,

 22 In whom you also are built together into an habitation of God in the Spirit.
in quo et vos coaedificamini in habitaculum Dei in Spiritu.
