Ephesians 4:2-16 - [Verse 6 in Original Greek]

2 with all humility R199 and gentleness, with patience, showing tolerance for one another in R200 love, 3 being diligent to preserve the unity of the Spirit in the bond R201 of peace. 4 {There is} one R202 body and one Spirit, just as also you were called in one hope R203 of your calling; 5 one R204 Lord, one faith, one baptism, 6 one God and Father of all who R205 is over all and through all and in all. 7 But to R206 each one of us grace R207 was given according R208 to the measure of Christ's gift. 8 Therefore it F56 says, "WHEN HE ASCENDED ON HIGH, HE LED R209 CAPTIVE A HOST OF CAPTIVES, AND HE GAVE GIFTS TO MEN." 9 (Now this {expression,} "He ascended," R210 what does F57 it mean except that He also had F58 descended into the R211 lower parts of the earth? 10 He who descended is Himself also He who ascended far R212 above all the heavens, so that He might fill R213 all things.) 11 And He gave R214 some R215 {as} apostles, and some {as} prophets, and some {as} evangelists, R216 and some {as} pastors and teachers, R217 12 for R218 the equipping of the saints F59 for the work of service, to the building up of the R219 body of Christ; 13 until we all attain to the R220 unity of the faith, and of the knowledge F60 R221 of the Son of God, to a mature R222 man, to the measure of the stature which F61 belongs to the fullness R223 of Christ. 14 As F62 a result, we are no R224 longer to be children, tossed R225 here and there by waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, by craftiness R226 in F63 deceitful R227 scheming; 15 but speaking F64 the truth in R228 love, we F65 are to grow R229 up in all {aspects} into Him who is the head, R230 {even} Christ, 16 from whom the R231 whole body, being fitted and held together by F66 what every joint supplies, according to the proper F67 working of each individual part, causes the growth of the body for the building up of itself in R232 love.
