Robertson's Word Pictures of the New TestamentEphesians 3:14
- I bow my knees (kamptw ta gonata mou).
- He now prays whether he had at first intended to do so at 3:1 or not. Calvin supposes that Paul knelt as he dictated this prayer, but this is not necessary. This was a common attitude in prayer (Luke 22:41; Acts 7:40; 20:36; 21:5), though standing is also frequent (Mark 11:25; Luke 18:11,13).
