^ access: I had hesitated whether I should not, with several translators say ’our’ access (and so bis in 3:12 and in 3:17). But it appears to me that our possessive is too strong an expression of the Greek article here; and that the force, in one case at least, is rather technical. (Lect. on Eph., p. v)
