HH: I would pick the third. EN shows the sphere in which the love is to
abound. It is to abound in the area of knowledge and all discernment.
Hopefully their love will incorporate knowledge and all discernment in its
activity. This interpretation of the preposition is what seems logical to
me, and that is the way that I have always read the verse, I think.
