Ephesians 4:8-10

8 This is why it[a] says: “When he ascended on high, he took many captives and gave gifts to his people.”[b]
9 (What does “he ascended” mean except that he also descended to the lower, earthly regions[c] ?
10 He who descended is the very one who ascended higher than all the heavens, in order to fill the whole universe.)
