Ephesians 5:2 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

Walk in love

As imitators of God who is love.

Loved us (ἡμᾶς)

The correct reading is ὑμᾶς you.

Gave (παρέδωκεν)

To death Compare Romans 4:25, where the same verb was delivered is followed by was raised. See also Romans 8:32; Galatians 2:20.

Offering - sacrifice (προσφορὰν - θυσίαν)

Offering, general, including the life as well as the death of Christ: sacrifice, special: on the cross. Properly, a slain offering.

A sweet smelling savor (ὀσμὴν εὐωδίας)

Rev., correctly, odor of a sweet smell. See on 2 Corinthians 2:14, 2 Corinthians 2:15, 2 Corinthians 2:16. The Septuagint, in Leviticus 1:9, uses this phrase to render the Hebrew, a savor of quietness. For (εἰς) expresses design, that it might become, or result: so that it became.
