Replying off the top of my head, I would choose to see the adverbial uses
of the prep. phrases with the verb form that follows. Paul often does this
(though I am aware of the theories that Eph. was written by someone else).
eg. Rom. 15:4 in the hINA clause, "through patience and comfort of the
scriptures let us have hope."
