Ephesians 2:10

Workmanship (poihma).
Old word from poiew with the ending -mat meaning result. In N.T. only here and Revelation 1:20.

Created (ktistentev).
First aorist passive participle of ktizw, not the original creation as in Colossians 1:16; Ephesians 3:9, but the moral and spiritual renewal in Christ, the new birth, as in Ephesians 2:15; 4:24.

For good works (epi ergoiv agatoiv).
Probably the true dative of purpose here with epi (Robertson, Grammar, p. 605). Purpose of the new creation in Christ.

Which (oiv).
Attraction of the relative a (accusative after prohtoimasen) to case of the antecedent ergoiv.

Afore prepared (prohtoimasen).
First aorist active indicative of prohtoimazw, old verb to make ready beforehand. In N.T. only here and Romans 9:23. Good works by us were included in the eternal foreordination by God.

That we should walk in them (ina en autoiv peripathswmen).
Expexegetic final clause explanatory of the election to good works.
