Ephesians 2:21 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

All the building (πᾶσα οικοδομὴ)

Lit., every building. Rev., each several building. But the reference is evidently to one building, and the rendering of A.V. should be retained though the article is wanting.

Fitly framed together (συναρμολογουμένη)

The present participle indicates the framing as in progress.

Temple (ναὸν)

Sanctuary. See on Matthew 4:5. The more sacred portion of the structure is chosen for the figure.
