14  Ich beuge meine Knie gegen den Vater unsers Herren Jesu Christi,
15  der der rechte Vater ist über alles, was da Kinder heißet, im Himmel und auf Erden,
16  daß er euch Kraft gebe nach dem Reichtum seiner Herrlichkeit, stark zu werden durch seinen Geist
an dem inwendigen Menschen,
17a  und Christum zu wohnen durch den Glauben in eurem Herzen.

14  I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,
15  Of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named,
16  That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit
in the inner man;
17a  That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith;
