Ephesians 3

1:1 at (a-19) Lit. 'in,' as Acts 13.1; Rev. 2.1. Ephesus. (b-20) It may be interesting to mention that though 'at Ephesus' is found in almost all copies, many authorities would leave it out. Some, without sufficient ground, have considered it as a kind of circular. Compare Col. 4.16.3:1 prisoner (b-6) Lit. 'the one in bonds.' 3:7 minister (c-6) Diakonos. see Note, 1Cor. 4.1. 3:9 ages (d-19) Or 'from eternity.' literally 'from the ages;' but in the sense of the period elapsed, not 'hidden from them.' 3:11 ages, (e-7) Or 'eternal purpose.' 3:14 Christ], (f-15) Many reject the words 'of our Lord Jesus Christ.' But as they are well supported by manuscripts and the most ancient versions and fathers I have not struck them out, though disposed to think them an addition. 3:15 family (g-4) There is a distinct connection between the Greek words for Father and family. 3:21 Amen). (a-19) Ch. 3, except ver. 1, is a parenthesis.
