"Trespasses and sins" (Eph. 2:1)—It may be noted that the Greek word which is here rendered "trespasses" means literally "lapses or deviations from truth and uprightness" (Thayer: Greek Lexicon, p. 485); while that which is translated "sins" derives from a root meaning "to miss the mark" (ibid., p. 30).
"Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past" (Eph. 2:3)—The Greek verb which is here rendered "to have conversation" means "to conduct oneself" or "to live" (cf. Thayer: op. cit.). Hence a more literal rendering of the passage would be: "among whom also we too once lived." Compare Goodspeed's rendering: "We all lived among them once."
