Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Ephesians 4:10

_ _ all heavensGreek, “all the heavens” (Hebrews 7:26; Hebrews 4:14), Greek, “passed through the heavens” to the throne of God itself.

_ _ might fill — In Greek, the action is continued to the present time, both “might” and “may fill,” namely, with His divine presence and Spirit, not with His glorified body. “Christ, as God, is present everywhere; as glorified man, He can be present anywhere” [Ellicott].

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Ephesians 4:2-16.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes
