Robertson's Word Pictures of the New TestamentEphesians 3:19
- And to know (gnwnai te).
- Second aorist active infinitive with exisxushte.
- Which passeth knowledge (thn uperballousan thv gnwsewv).
- Ablative case gnwsewv after uperballousan (from uperballw). All the same Paul dares to scale this peak.
- That ye may be filled with all the fulness of God (ina plhrwthte eiv pan to plhrwma tou teou).
- Final clause again (third use of ina in the sentence) with first aorist passive subjunctive of plhrow and the use of eiv after it. One hesitates to comment on this sublime climax in Paul's prayer, the ultimate goal for followers of Christ in harmony with the injunction in Matthew 5:48 to be perfect (teleioi) as our heavenly Father is perfect. There is nothing that any one can add to these words. One can turn to Romans 8:29 again for our final likeness to God in Christ.
