【niv】Therefore, remember that formerly you who are Gentiles by birth and called 'uncircumcised' by those who call themselves 'the circumcision' (that done in the body by the hands of men)--
12 那時，你們與基督無關，在以色列國民以外，在所應許的諸約上是局外人，并且活在世上沒有指望，沒有 神。
【niv】remember that at that time you were separate from Christ, excluded from citizenship in Israel and foreigners to the covenants of the promise, without hope and without God in the world.
13 你們從前遠離 神的人，如今卻在基督耶穌里，靠著他的血，已經得親近了。
【niv】But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far away have been brought near through the blood of Christ.
【niv】For he himself is our peace, who has made the two one and has destroyed the barrier, the dividing wall of hostility,
【niv】by abolishing in his flesh the law with its commandments and regulations. His purpose was to create in himself one new man out of the two, thus making peace,
16 既在十字架上滅了冤仇，便借這十字架使兩下歸為一體，與 神和好了；
【niv】and in this one body to reconcile both of them to God through the cross, by which he put to death their hostility.
【niv】He came and preached peace to you who were far away and peace to those who were near.
【niv】For through him we both have access to the Father by one Spirit.
