Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Ephesians 5:24

_ _ Therefore — Translate, as Greek, “But,” or “Nevertheless,” that is, though there be the difference of headships mentioned in Ephesians 5:23, nevertheless, thus far they are one, namely, in the subjection or submission (the same Greek stands for “is subject,” as for “submit,Ephesians 5:21, Ephesians 5:22) of the Church to Christ, being the prototype of that of the wife to the husband.

_ _ their own — not in most of the oldest manuscripts, and not needed by the argument.

_ _ in every thing — appertaining to a husband’s legitimate authority; “in the Lord” (Colossians 3:18); everything not contrary to God.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Ephesians 5:21-33.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes
