to shine on those who sit in darkness and the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace.” Bible see other translations

“into.” Rather than solely expressing motion “into,” the preposition eis (#1519 εἰς) can also have the sense of “in.” Here it includes both the meanings of guiding us “into” the way of peace and also the notion of guiding along, “in,” the road while actually on the path. Christ leads us both ‘into’ and ‘in’ the road of peace.
