Παρακαλῶ οὖν ὑμᾶς ἐγὼ ὁ δέσμιος ἐν κυρίῳ ἀξίως περιπατῆσαι τῆς κλήσεως ἧς ἐκλήθητε,
I therefore ( in light of everything I've said from chapters 1-3), a prisoner for the Lord, urge you to walk in a manner worthy of the calling to which you have been called,
μετὰ πάσης ταπεινοφροσύνης καὶ πραΰτητος, μετὰ μακροθυμίας,
( How should we walk worthily?) with all humility and gentleness, with patience,
ἀνεχόμενοι ἀλλήλων ἐν ἀγάπῃ,
bearing with one another in love,
σπουδάζοντες τηρεῖν τὴν ἑνότητα τοῦ πνεύματος ἐν τῷ συνδέσμῳ τῆς εἰρήνης •
haistening to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.

Ἓν σῶμα καὶ ἓν πνεῦμα,
(The Trinitarian ground of this unity is that) ( Why should we walk worthily?) There is one body and one Spirit—
καθὼς καὶ ἐκλήθητε ἐν μιᾷ ἐλπίδι τῆς κλήσεως ὑμῶν•
just as you were called to the one hope that belongs to your call—
comparison
εἷς κύριος, μία πίστις, ἓν βάπτισμα,
one Lord, one faith, one baptism,
εἷς θεὸς καὶ πατὴρ πάντων, ὁ ἐπὶ πάντων καὶ διὰ πάντων καὶ ἐν πᾶσιν.
one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all.

Ἐνὶ δὲ ἑκάστῳ ἡμῶν ἐδόθη ἡ χάρις κατὰ τὸ μέτρον τῆς δωρεᾶς τοῦ Χριστοῦ.
( Q :How will we be able to "walk worthily" of the gospel? A : by Christ's equipping each individual member with gifts to build up and mature the body) But grace was given to each one of us according to the measure of Christ's gift
διὸ λέγει• ἀναβὰς εἰς ὕψος ᾐχμαλώτευσεν αἰχμαλωσίαν, ἔδωκεν δόματα τοῖς ἀνθρώποις.
Therefore it says, “When he ascended on high he led a host of captives, and he gave gifts to men.”
τὸ δὲ ἀνέβη τί ἐστιν, εἰ μὴ ὅτι καὶ κατέβη εἰς τὰ κατώτερα [μέρη] τῆς γῆς;
( Explanation of Ps.68:18 ) (In saying, “He ascended,” what does it mean but that he had also descended into the lower regions, the earth?
ὁ καταβὰς αὐτός ἐστιν καὶ ὁ ἀναβὰς ὑπεράνω πάντων τῶν οὐρανῶν, ἵνα πληρώσῃ τὰ πάντα.
He who descended is the one who also ascended far above all the heavens, that he might fill all things.
