The uninitiated, again, would have good reason to wonder at this, though I see it as the result of too much exposure to a KJV translation of Pauline Greek.

Michael S, maybe there's no need to suspect the influence of the KJV translation of Pauline Greek. Apostle Paul himself does the job. At least, that's the impression I got, having struggled through the Letter to Ephesians. The translation into Finnish is not bad.
Probably it's my own fault that I find the Pauline syntax nearly impenetrable
