are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets
with Christ Jesus Himself the chief Cornerstone.In Him
the whole structure is joined (bound, welded) together
and it continues to rise (grow, increase)
into a holy temple in the Lord
[a sanctuary dedicated, consecrated, and sacred
to the presence of the Lord].
[and in fellowship with one another]
you yourselves also are being built up
[into this structure]
with the rest,
to form a fixed abode (dwelling place)
in (by, through) the Spirit.
