Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Hebrews 13:21

_ _ Make you perfect — properly said of healing a rent; join you together in perfect harmony [Bengel].

_ _ to do his will, working in you — (Hebrews 10:36); rather as Greek,doing in you.” Whatever good we do, God does in us.

_ _ well-pleasing in his sight — (Isaiah 53:10; Ephesians 5:10).

_ _ through Jesus Christ — “God doing (working) in you that ... through Jesus Christ” (Philippians 1:11).

_ _ to whom — to Christ. He closes as he began (Hebrews 1:1-14), with giving glory to Christ.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Hebrews 13:18-25.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Hebrews 13:21

Make you (h) perfect in every good work to do his will, (i) working in you that which is wellpleasing in his sight, through Jesus Christ; to whom [be] glory for ever and ever. Amen.

(h) Make you fit or suitable.

(i) From this comes that saying of the fathers, that God crowns his work in us.
