Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Ephesians 3:21

_ _ Translate, “Unto Him be the glory (that is, the whole glory of the gracious dispensation of salvation just spoken of) in the Church (as the theater for the manifestation of the glory, Ephesians 3:10) in Christ Jesus (as in Him all the glory centers, Zechariah 6:13) to all the generations of eternal ages,” literally, “of the age of the ages.” Eternity is conceived as consisting of “ages” (these again consisting of “generations”) endlessly succeeding one another.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Ephesians 3:14-21.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Ephesians 3:21

In the church — On earth and in heaven.
