1840 eksisxýō (from 1537 /ek, "completely out of from" which intensifies 2479 /isxýs, "aggressive strength, filling a need or void") – properly, "strength at work," such as overcoming difficulties in understanding ("getting past knowledge-gaps"). It is only used in Eph 3:18, referring to apprehending (decisively laying hold of) the fuller dimensions of knowing the Lord (His love, calling, presence).

Eph 3:17,18: "17So that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith (4102 /pístis); and that you, being rooted and grounded in love, 18may be able (1840/eksisxýō) to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth" (NASU).

[(Eph 3:18) may be able (eksisxusēte) – The preposition 1537 (ek) leads "the force of fully or eminently" (WS, 855).]
