17 I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better. 18 I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people, 19 and his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is the same as the mighty strength 20 he exerted when he raised Christ from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms, 21 far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every name that is invoked, not only in the present age but also in the one to come. 22 And God placed all things under his feet and appointed him to be head over everything for the church, 23 which is his body, the fullness of him who fills everything in every way.
Sardonic Poet's interpretation:
17 Those that are above God are beneath freedom. 18 Your heart inherits enlightenment that your mind's inspiration accepts the desire to sin makes us fallible. 19 Belief trumps pessimism. 20 The ideal leads the way through those who feed from sin. 21 Time (itself) obeys. 22 Earth spins to the tune of toes. 23 His flesh fills our skin like pouring wine.
