"With all lowliness and meekness, with longsuffering" (Eph. 4:2)—The word translated "lowliness" can also mean "humility" or "modesty"; while that rendered "meekness" has rather the of "gentleness" or "mildness." The Twentieth Century New Testament suggests: "always humble and gentle, patient."
"Unto every one of us is given grace according to the measure of the gift of Christ" (Eph. 4:7)—It is suggested in some of the more modern renderings of this passage that the word "measure," as it is employed in this context, brings out no thought of limitation. Thus Goodspeed suggests: "Each one of us has been given mercy in Christ's generous measure;" and Weymouth (Fifth Edition): "To each of us individually His grace was given, measured out with the munificence of Christ."
