Διὰ τοῦτο κἀγώ,
ἀκούσας τὴν καθ’ ὑμᾶς πίστιν ἐν τῷ κυρίῳ Ἰησοῦ
καὶ τὴν ἀγάπην τὴν εἰς πάντας τοὺς ἁγίους,
οὐ παύομαι εὐχαριστῶν ὑπὲρ ὑμῶν
μνείαν ποιούμενος ἐπὶ τῶν προσευχῶν μου,
ὁ θεὸς τοῦ κυρίου ἡμῶν Ἰησοῦ Χριστοῦ, ὁ πατὴρ τῆς δόξης,
ἵνα ... δώῃ ὑμῖν πνεῦμα σοφίας καὶ ἀποκαλύψεως ἐν ἐπιγνώσει αὐτοῦ,
πεφωτισμένους τοὺς ὀφθαλμοὺς τῆς καρδίας ὑμῶν
εἰς τὸ εἰδέναι ὑμᾶς
τίς ἐστιν ἡ ἐλπὶς τῆς κλήσεως αὐτοῦ,
τίς (...) ὁ πλοῦτος τῆς δόξης τῆς κληρονομίας αὐτοῦ ἐν τοῖς ἁγίοις,
καὶ τί (...) τὸ ὑπερβάλλον μέγεθος τῆς δυνάμεως αὐτοῦ
εἰς ἡμᾶς τοὺς πιστεύοντας
κατὰ τὴν ἐνέργειαν τοῦ κράτους τῆς ἰσχύος αὐτοῦ
ἣν ἐνήργηκεν ἐν τῷ Χριστῷ
ἐγείρας αὐτὸν ἐκ νεκρῶν,
καὶ καθίσας
ἐν δεξιᾷ αὐτοῦ
ἐν τοῖς ἐπουρανίοις
ὑπεράνω
πάσης ἀρχῆς

καὶ παντὸς ὀνόματος
ὀνομαζομένου
οὐ μόνον ἐν τῷ αἰῶνι τούτῳ
ἀλλὰ καὶ ἐν τῷ μέλλοντι·
καὶ πάντα ὑπέταξεν ὑπὸ τοὺς πόδας αὐτοῦ,
καὶ αὐτὸν ἔδωκεν κεφαλὴν ὑπὲρ πάντα τῇ ἐκκλησίᾳ,
ἥτις ἐστὶν τὸ σῶμα αὐτοῦ,
τὸ πλήρωμα τοῦ τὰ πάντα ἐν πᾶσιν πληρουμένου.
Διὰ τοῦτο κἀγώ, ἀκούσας τὴν καθ’ ὑμᾶς πίστιν ἐν τῷ κυρίῳ Ἰησοῦ καὶ τὴν ἀγάπην τὴν εἰς πάντας τοὺς ἁγίους,

Ephesians 1:15-23
niv
For this reason, ever since I heard about your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for all God’s people, I have not stopped giving thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers.
Διὰ τοῦτο κἀγώ, ἀκούσας τὴν καθ’ ὑμᾶς πίστιν ἐν τῷ κυρίῳ Ἰησοῦ καὶ τὴν ⸂ ἀγάπην τὴν ⸃ εἰς πάντας τοὺς ἁγίους, οὐ παύομαι εὐχαριστῶν ὑπὲρ ὑμῶν ⸀ μνείαν ποιούμενος ἐπὶ τῶν προσευχῶν μου,
I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation,
ἵνα ὁ θεὸς τοῦ κυρίου ἡμῶν Ἰησοῦ Χριστοῦ, ὁ πατὴρ τῆς δόξης, δώῃ ὑμῖν πνεῦμα σοφίας καὶ ἀποκαλύψεως ἐν ἐπιγνώσει αὐτοῦ,
so that you may know him better.
actionpurpose
I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened
πεφωτισμένους τοὺς ὀφθαλμοὺς τῆς καρδίας ὑμῶν
in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you,
εἰς τὸ εἰδέναι ὑμᾶς τίς ἐστιν ἡ ἐλπὶς τῆς κλήσεως αὐτοῦ,
the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people,
⸀ τίς ὁ πλοῦτος τῆς δόξης τῆς κληρονομίας αὐτοῦ ἐν τοῖς ἁγίοις,
and his incomparably great power for us who believe.
καὶ τί τὸ ὑπερβάλλον μέγεθος τῆς δυνάμεως αὐτοῦ εἰς ἡμᾶς τοὺς πιστεύοντας κατὰ τὴν ἐνέργειαν τοῦ κράτους τῆς ἰσχύος αὐτοῦ
That power is the same as the mighty strength he exerted
ἣν ⸀ ἐνήργηκεν ἐν τῷ Χριστῷ ἐγείρας αὐτὸν ⸀ ἐκ νεκρῶν, καὶ ⸀ καθίσας ἐν δεξιᾷ αὐτοῦ ἐν τοῖς ἐπουρανίοις
when he raised Christ from the dead
and seated him
ὑπεράνω πάσης ἀρχῆς καὶ ἐξουσίας καὶ δυνάμεως καὶ κυριότητος καὶ παντὸς ὀνόματος ὀνομαζομένου οὐ μόνον ἐν τῷ αἰῶνι τούτῳ ἀλλὰ καὶ ἐν τῷ μέλλοντι·
at his right hand in the heavenly realms, far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every name that is invoked, not only in the present age but also in the one to come.
locative
And God placed all things under his feet
καὶ πάντα ὑπέταξεν ὑπὸ τοὺς πόδας αὐτοῦ, καὶ αὐτὸν ἔδωκεν κεφαλὴν ὑπὲρ πάντα τῇ ἐκκλησίᾳ,
and appointed him to be head over everything for the church,
which is his body, the fullness of him who fills everything in every way.
ἥτις ἐστὶν τὸ σῶμα αὐτοῦ, τὸ πλήρωμα τοῦ τὰ πάντα ἐν πᾶσιν πληρουμένου.
