Excerpt from Commentary on the Greek Text of the Epistle of Paul to the Ephesians
The following pages are an attempt to give'a con cise but full Exposition of the Epistle of Paul to the. Ephesians. My object has been to exhibit the mind and meaning of the apostle, not only by a scientific analysis of his language, but also by a careful delinea tion of the logical connection and sequence of his thoughts. Mere verbal criticism or detached annotation upon the various words by themselves and in succes sion is a defective course, inasmuch as it may leave the process of mental operation on the part of the inspired writer Wholly untraced in its links and involutions. On the other hand, the sense is not to be lazily or abruptly grasped at, but to be patiently detected in its most delicate shades and aspects, by the precise inves tigation of every vocable. As the smaller lines of the countenance give to its larger features their special and distinctive expression, so the minuter particles and pre positions give an individuality of shape and complexion to the more prominent terms of a sentence or paragraph. In this spirit philology has been kept in subordination to exegesis, and grammatical inquiry has been made subservient to the development of idea and argument.
