New Defender's Study Bible Notes
2:12 without God. “Without God” is the Greek atheos (equivalent to “atheist”). This is the only place in the New Testament where this word is used.
2:19 household. We are of “the household of faith” (Galatians 6:10), and therefore of “the household of God”—that is, members of His family, whether Jew or Gentile. Then, as Ephesians 2:20-22 goes on to reveal, this living household is also becoming a living house, and we shall “dwell in the house of the LORD for ever” (Psalm 23:6).
