"Unto every one of us is given grace according to the measure of the gift of Christ" (Eph. 4:7)—Modern translators clearly consider that "measure," as here employed, implies no sense of limitation, for we find: "To each one of us individually His grace was given, measured out with the munificence of Christ" (Weymouth, 5th edition); "Each one of us is granted his own grace, us determined by the full measure of Christ's gift" (Moffatt); "Each one of us has been given mercy in Christ's generous measure" (Goodspeed).
"Conversation" (Eph. 4:22)—The word "anastrophe," thus translated, means rather "manner of life, behaviour, conduct" (Abbott-Smith: Greek Lexicon, p. 34). Goodspeed expresses the sense by the word "habits"; Moffatt has "course of life"; and Weymouth: "mode of life."
"Is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts" (Eph. 4:22)—More literally: "is becoming corrupt because of the lusts of deceit." Goodspeed has: "is going to ruin through its deceptive passions;" Weymouth gives: "is doomed to perish as befits its misleading impulses;" and Moffatt: "crumbles to ruin under the passions of moral deceit."
