WK Translation Notes

a
in grace and knowledge: The Revisers translate ἐν χ. κ. τ. γ. (18) no better than the Authorized Version. They have no right to say "in the grace," etc., any more than the Authorized Version "in the knowledge." The insertion of our definite article here misleads. It is more correct to say "in grace and knowledge," etc. (Bible Treasury 14:96)
eternity's day: I apprehend that εἰς ἠμεραν αἰῶνος is in allusion to, and in contrast with, "the day of judgment," (verse 7,) "the day of the Lord" or "of God," (verses 10,12) in the chapter which the phrase closes, and that the idea is the eternal day, which succeeds all previous days of sin and judgment. The words in John 6:51 (εἰς τὸν αιῶνα) are the commonest possible expression of eternity, or "for ever," whether absolute or relative, which of course depends on the context and nature of the case. See Matt. 21:19; Mark 3:29, 11:14; Luke 1:55; John 4:14, 6:58, 8:35, 51, 52, 10:28, 11:26, 12:34, 13:8, 14:16; 1 Cor. 8:13; 2 Cor. 9:9; Heb. 6:20, 7:17, 21, 24, 28; 1 Peter 1:23,25; 1 John 2:17; 2 John 2; which are, I think, all the occurrences in the New Testament. Εἰς αἰῶνα (in 2 Peter 2:17) has been dropped by some editors, though even they admit the same phrase in Jude 13. The omission of the article implies, that the phrase is characteristic, i.e. adjectival of the sense; and "everlasting," as "for ever," pertains to τοῦ σκότους, rather than to the verb. The plural form often occurs, as in Rom. 1:25, 9:5, 11:36, 16:27; 2 Cor. 11:31, etc.; or with πάντας, as in Jude 25; or yet more emphatically εἰς τοὺς αἰῶνας τῶν αἰώνων, as in Gal. 1:5, and often elsewhere. The idea here is, not so much one unbroken eternity, (expressed by the singular, simple or complex, as in Heb. 1:9,) as the constant succession of age upon age, which is pretty well given in the English "for ever and ever." Ephes. 3:21 is the most peculiar of all; for γενεάς. expresses ordinarily human generations, τοῦ αἰῶνος of itself would convey the thought of an undivided everlasting; and τῶν αἰῶνων closes the series with successive ages sweeping on. The whole phrase intimates, I suppose, a future beyond the bounds of every measure of time. The anarthrous form εἰς αἰῶνας αιώνων occurs in Rev. 19:11, (where, however, C. has αἰῶνα αἰῶνος) which, as we have seen, modifies the sense so far as to present no positive object before the mind, as in Rev. 19:3, and simply in this case characterises the action of the verb. (Christian Annotator 3:243, Bible Witness & Review 1:317-318).
