God chose us to belong to Christ before the world was created. He chose us to be holy and without blame in his eyes. He loved us.
~Ephesians 1:4 New International Reader’s Version
and I love the coloquial way of the Wycliffe Bible translation
as he hath chosen us in himself before the making of the world, that we were holy [as he chose us in him before the making of the world, that we should be holy], and without wem in his sight, in charity. ~Ephesians 1:4, Wycliffe Translation
What is a “Wem”?
It is a spot; scar; fault; blemish; taint; en.wiktionary.org/wiki/wem
Through God’s eyes of love toward His beloved, He sees us without yuck
