Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Ephesians 5:13

_ _ that are reproved — rather, “when they are reproved,” namely, by you (Ephesians 5:11).

_ _ whatsoever doth make manifest — rather, “everything that is (that is, suffers itself to be) made manifest (or ‘shone upon,’ namely, by your ‘reproving,’ Ephesians 5:11) is (thenceforth no longer ‘darkness,’ Ephesians 5:8, but) light.” The devil and the wicked will not suffer themselves to be made manifest by the light, but love darkness, though outwardly the light shines round them. Therefore, “light” has no transforming effect on them, so that they do not become light (John 3:19, John 3:20). But, says the apostle, you being now light yourselves (Ephesians 5:8), by bringing to light through reproof those who are in darkness, will convert them to light. Your consistent lives and faithful reproofs will be your “armor of light” (Romans 13:12) in making an inroad on the kingdom of darkness.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Ephesians 5:3-20.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Ephesians 5:13

But all things which are reproved, are thereby dragged out into the light, and made manifest — Shown in their proper colours, by the light. For whatsoever doth make manifest is light — That is, for nothing but light, yea, light from heaven, can make anything manifest.
