3 How that by revelation he made known unto me the mystery asI wrote afore in few words
4 Wherebywhen ye readye may understand my knowledge in themystery of Christ
5 Which in other ages was not made known unto the sons of men as it is now revealed unto his holy apostles and prophets bythe Spirit
6 That the Gentiles should be fellowheirsand of the same body and partakers of his promise in Christ by the gospel
7 Whereof I was made a ministeraccording to the gift of thegrace of God given unto me by the effectual working of hispower.
8 Unto mewho am less than the least of all saintsis thisgrace giventhat I should preach among the Gentiles theunsearchable riches of Christ
9 And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mysterywhich from the beginning of the world hath been hid in Godwho created all things by Jesus Christ
