      It is true that some patristic
      comments and ancient
      translations take the phrase
      to mean "within you".

      For a clear and instructive
      discussion of the interpretations
      and their history Fitzmyer, Luke
      p.1161 discusses most of the issues.
      He argues that the evidence favours
      either "within your grasp"
      or "amongst you".

      There are other places in the NT which
      do refer to inner experience, this one
      probably does not.
