to be strengthened [lit. to be become strong = aor. pass. infin. of
krataioomai] through the spirit of him into the innermost being of a human
being, 17 to put Christ through the faith into the hearts of you (pl.),
as ones who, in love, have been firmly rooted and been firmly established, 18
in order that you (pl) might be fully able to make [it] your own with all
the saints what [is] the breadth/width and length and height and depth, 19
and to know the thrown-over-knowledge-love of Christ, in order that you
(pl) might be filled into all the fullness of God.

what we are asking (for our own benefit) or imagining according to the
