Psalm 68 (a seminal text for NT pneumatology) is the operative OT text
in Eph 4:9. See the definitive study by W. Hall Harris III: *The
Descent of Christ: Ephesians 4:7-11 and Traditional Hebrew Imagery*
(AGAJU 32; Leiden: Brill, 1996 [available also through Baker?]). Cf.
also George Caird's important article on this ("The Descent of Christ
in Ephesians 4:7-11," *Studia Evangelica* [1964?]), and cf. Percy's
commentary on Ephesians.
