Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Ephesians 6:13

_ _ take ... of God — not “make,” God has done that: you have only to “take up” and put it on. The Ephesians were familiar with the idea of the gods giving armor to mythical heroes: thus Paul’s allusion would be appropriate.

_ _ the evil day — the day of Satan’s special assaults (Ephesians 6:12, Ephesians 6:16) in life and at the dying hour (compare Revelation 3:10). We must have our armor always on, to be ready against the evil day which may come at any moment, the war being perpetual (Psalms 41:1, Margin).

_ _ done all — rather, “accomplished all things,” namely, necessary to the fight, and becoming a good soldier.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Ephesians 6:10-18.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Ephesians 6:13

In the evil day — The war is perpetual; but the fight is one day less, another more, violent. The evil day is either at the approach of death, or in life; may be longer or shorter and admits of numberless varieties. And having done all, to stand — That ye may still keep on your armour, still stand upon your guard, still watch and pray; and thus ye will be enabled to endure unto the end, and stand with joy before the face of the Son of Man.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Ephesians 6:13

(14) Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the (i) evil day, and having done all, to stand.

(14) He shows that these enemies are put to flight only with the armour of God, that is, with uprightness of conscience, a godly and holy life, knowledge of the Gospel, faith, and to be short, with the word of God. And that daily earnest prayer must be made for the health of the Church, and especially for the steadfast faithfulness of the true, godly, and valiant ministers of the word.

(i) See (Ephesians 5:16).
