NASB — Ephesians 2 — KJV

Made Alive in Christ

1 And you Iwere adead IIin your trespasses and sins, 2 in which you aformerly walked according to the Icourse of bthis world, according to cthe prince of the power of the air, of the spirit that is now working in dthe sons of disobedience. 3 Among them we too all aformerly lived in bthe lusts of our flesh, Iindulging the desires of the flesh and of the IImind, and were cby nature dchildren of wrath, eeven as the rest. 4 But God, being arich in mercy, because of bHis great love with which He loved us, 5 even when we were adead Iin our transgressions, made us alive together IIwith Christ (bby grace you have been saved), 6 and araised us up with Him, and bseated us with Him in cthe heavenly [places] in dChrist Jesus, 7 so that in the ages to come He might show the surpassing ariches of His grace in bkindness toward us in Christ Jesus. 8 For aby grace you have been saved bthrough faith; and Ithat not of yourselves, [it is] cthe gift of God; 9 anot as a result of works, so that bno one may boast. 10 For we are His workmanship, acreated in bChrist Jesus for cgood works, which God dprepared beforehand so that we would ewalk in them.
