Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Ephesians 6:15

_ _ Translate, “Having shod your feet” (referring to the sandals, or to the military shoes then used).

_ _ the preparation — rather, “the preparedness,” or “readiness of,” that is, arising from the “Gospel” (Psalms 10:17). Preparedness to do and suffer all that God wills; readiness for march, as a Christian soldier.

_ _ gospel of peace — (compare Luke 1:79; Romans 10:15). The “peace” within forms a beautiful contrast to the raging of the outward conflict (Isaiah 26:3; Philippians 4:7).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Ephesians 6:10-18.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Ephesians 6:15

And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel — Let this be always ready to direct and confirm you in every step. This part of the armour, for the feet, is needful, considering what a journey we have to go; what a race to run. Our feet must be so shod, that our footsteps slip not. To order our life and conversation aright, we are prepared by the gospel blessing, the peace and love of God ruling in the heart, Colossians 3:14-15. By this only can we tread the rough ways, surmount our difficulties, and hold out to the end.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Ephesians 6:15

And your feet shod with the (k) preparation of the gospel of peace;

(k) The preparation of the Gospel may be as it were shoes to you: and it is very fitly called the Gospel of peace, because, seeing we have to go to God through most dangerous ranks of enemies, this may encourage us to go on bravely, in that you know by the doctrine of the Gospel, that we are travelling to God who is at peace with us.
