2:11 Therefore remember that formerly you, the Gentiles in the flesh – who are called “uncircumcisionby the so-called “circumcisionthat is performed on the body 2  by human hands 2:12 that you were at that time without the Messiah, 3  alienated from the citizenship of Israel and strangers to the covenants of promise, 4  having no hope and without God in the world. 2:13 But now in Christ Jesus you who used to be far away have been brought near by the blood of Christ. 5  2:14 For he is our peace, the one who made both groups into one 6  and who destroyed the middle wall of partition, the hostility, 2:15 when he nullified 7  in his flesh the law of commandments in decrees. He did this to create in himself one new man 8  out of two, 9  thus making peace, 2:16 and to reconcile them both in one body to God through the cross, by which the hostility has been killed. 10  2:17 And he came and preached peace to you who were far off and peace to those who were near, 2:18 so that 11  through him we both have access in one Spirit to the Father. 2:19 So then you are no longer foreigners and noncitizens, but you are fellow citizens with the saints and members of God’s household, 2:20 because you have been built 12  on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, 13  with Christ Jesus himself as 14  the cornerstone. 15  2:21 In him 16  the whole building, 17  being joined together, grows into a holy temple in the Lord, 2:22 in whom you also are being built together into a dwelling place of God in the Spirit.
