Ephesians 3:3-5

Context
3:3 that 1  by revelation the divine secret 2  was made known to me, as I wrote before briefly. 3  3:4 When reading this, 4  you will be able to 5  understand my insight into this secret 6  of Christ. 3:5 Now this secret 7  was not disclosed to people 8  in former 9  generations as it has now been revealed to his holy apostles and prophets by 10  the Spirit,

1 tn Or “namely, that is.”

2 tn Or “mystery.”

3 tn Or “as I wrote above briefly.”

sn As I wrote briefly may refer to the author’s brief discussion of the divine secret in 1:9.

4 tn Grk “which, when reading.”

5 tn Grk “you are able to.”

6 tn Or “mystery.”

7 tn Grk “which.” Verse 5 is technically a relative clause, subordinate to the thought of v. 4.

9 tn Grk “other.”

10 tn Or “in.”
