Ephesians 6

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. 4.16.6:3 earth. (c-16) See Ex. 20.12; Deut. 5.16. 6:11 on (d-2) Aorist, meaning 'have it put on.' panoply (e-4) i.e. 'the complete armour.' The word is used only here and in Luke 11.22. 6:12 [power] (f-24) Or 'powers.' 6:13 take (g-4) 'Take,' 'taken,' vers, 13 and 16, are aorists. The sense is 'taking up,' as arms or clothes to put on. taking a person with you, 2Tim. 4.11. things, (h-26) Or 'having overcome all things.' It is to 'carry through and put in execution all that is purposed and called for, in spite of opposition.' 6:15 preparation (i-7) Or 'readiness,' 'willingness,' 'preparedness.' 6:16 inflamed (k-20) Or 'burning.' such darts with burning stuff at the end were in use. 6:17 (l-1) Lit. 'receive' (aorist imperative). This is not as active or energetic a word as 'take,' vers. 13,16. Perhaps there is instruction in this. 6:21 on, (a-16) Prasso. the word seems to express both doing and state. see Note i, Rom. 1.32. minister (b-23) Or 'servant' (diakonos), one that ministered to Paul as to the Lord, as 2Cor. 6.4.
