Finally, e be strong in the Lord
and in f the strength of his might.
g Put on h the whole armor of God,
that you may be able to stand against i the schemes of the devil.
For j we do not wrestle against flesh and blood,
but against k the rulers, against the authorities, against l the cosmic powers over m this present darkness, against n the spiritual forces of evil o in the heavenly places.
Therefore p take up the whole armor of God,
that you may be able
to withstand in q the evil day,
and having done all,
to stand firm.
r having fastened on the belt of truth,
and s having put on the breastplate of righteousness,
and, t as shoes for your feet, having put on the readiness given by the gospel of peace.
In all circumstances
take up u the shield of faith,
with which you can extinguish all v the flaming darts of w the evil one;
and take s the helmet of salvation,
and x the sword of the Spirit,
which is the word of God,
praying y at all times z in the Spirit,
a with all prayer and supplication.
To that end b keep alert
with all perseverance,
making c supplication for all the saints,
and d also for me,
that words may be given to me in opening my mouth e boldly to proclaim f the mystery of the gospel,
for which I g am an ambassador h in chains,
that I may declare it boldly,
as I ought to speak.
“To this end or to this purpose”-singular neuter
“Prayer & supplication”-singular feminine
Kuya, I have a question about Ephesians 6:18, I searched for the phrase “to this end”, and I discovered that it means “to this purpose”...now,for me to be able to connect propositions, I tried to look-up for the greek of “purpose”, and it is “singular neuter”...so I have to find the word that has “singular neauter” in order to identify what the “purpose” refers to.. “Spirit”-singular masculine “Prayer & supplication”-singular feminine .. Now, I do not know which proposition to connect kuya. Can you help me? ..
Prayer is not another piece of armor but is the way believers appropriate God’s armor and stand firm
Mora syag concessive kay “in chains”...unsa ng “ that” sa 20b?
