Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Ephesians 1:19

_ _ exceeding — “surpassing.”

_ _ power to us-ward who believe — The whole of the working of His grace, which He is carrying on, and will carry on, in us who believe. By the term “saints” (Ephesians 1:18), believers are regarded as absolutely perfected, and so as being God’s inheritance; in this verse, as in the course of fighting the good fight of faith.

_ _ according to — in accordance with, what might be expected from.

_ _ workingGreek, “the energizing”; translate, “the effectual working” (Ephesians 3:7). The same superhuman power was needed and exerted to make us believe, as was needed and exerted to raise Christ from the dead (Ephesians 1:20). Compare Philippians 3:10, “the power of His resurrection” (Colossians 2:12; 1 Peter 1:3-5).

_ _ of his mighty powerGreek, “of the strength of His might.”

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Ephesians 1:15-23.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Ephesians 1:19

And what the exceeding greatness of his power toward us who believe — Both in quickening our dead souls, and preserving them in spiritual life. According to the power which he exerted in Christ, raising him from the dead — By the very same almighty power whereby he raised Christ; for no less would suffice.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Ephesians 1:19

(19) And what [is] the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power,

(19) The excellency of faith is declared by the effects, because the mighty power of God is set forth and shown in them.
