Ephesians 5:15 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

See that ye walk circumspectly (βλέπετε πῶς ἀκριβῶς περιπατεῖτε)

Lit., look how exactly ye walk. The best texts place τῶς how after ἀκριβῶς exactly. So Rev., look carefully how ye walk. Circumspectly is better rendered carefully. It means exactly, accurately, from ἄκρος the farthest point. See on inquired diligently, Matthew 2:6; and compare Luke 1:3 (note); Acts 18:25 (note).

Not as unwise, but as wise

Explanatory of carefully.
