on my behalf, that utterance may be given to me in opening my mouth, to make known with boldness the mystery of the Good News,
Young's Literal Translation

Ephesians 6:19 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
And for me, that utterance may be given unto me - Ἱνα μοι δοθειη λογος. Kypke has proved by many examples that λογον διδοναι signifies permission and power to defend one's self in a court of justice; and this sense of the phrase is perfectly applicable to the case of St. Paul, who was an ambassador in bonds, (Ephesians 6:20), and expected to be called to a public hearing, in which he was not only to defend himself, but to prove the truth and excellency of the Christian religion.

Thus God had enabled him to make a most noble defense, by which the Gospel acquired great credit.
The mystery of the Gospel - The whole doctrine of Christ, not fully revealed previously to that time.

Now to him who is able to establish you in accordance with my gospel, the message I proclaim about Jesus Christ, in keeping with the revelation of the mystery hidden for long ages past,
2 Corinthians 3:12
Therefore, since we have such a hope, we are very bold.
2 Corinthians 6:11
We have spoken freely to you, Corinthians, and opened wide our hearts to you.
that is, the mystery made known to me by revelation, as I have already written briefly.
In reading this, then, you will be able to understand my insight into the mystery of Christ,
and to make plain to everyone the administration of this mystery, which for ages past was kept hidden in God, who created all things.
And pray for us, too, that God may open a door for our message, so that we may proclaim the mystery of Christ, for which I am in chains.
