    SEV Biblia, Chapter 6:22

    al cual os he enviado para esto mismo, para que entendis lo tocante a nosotros, y que consuele vuestros corazones.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Ephesians 6:22

    Verse 22. Whom I have sent-for the same purpose] Namely, that the Ephesians might know his affairs, and those of the
    Church at Rome: messengers of this kind frequently passed between the Churches in those ancient times.

    Comfort your hearts.] By showing you how powerfully he was upheld in all his tribulations, and how God turned his bonds to the furtherance of the Gospel. This must have been great consolation to all the followers of God; and particularly to those in Ephesus or Laodicea, or to whomsoever the epistle was directed. The question, To whom was it sent? is divided between the Ephesians and the Laodiceans. Dr. Lardner has argued strongly in favour of the former; Dr. Paley not less so in favour of the latter.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 22. Whom I have sent unto you for the same purpose , &c.] Which shows the great concern the apostle had for the churches, being willing to inform them of everything that might be for their use and service: that ye might know our affairs ; temporal and spiritual, and not only the apostle's affairs, but the affairs of those that were with him, who were concerned in the same common cause: and [that] he might comfort your hearts ; both by such a relation, and by the ministry of the Gospel to them: believers in Christ are sometimes disconsolate, by reason of indwelling sin, Satan's temptations, the hidings of God's face, afflictions and persecutions, their own sufferings, and those of others; and it is the business of the ministers of Christ to comfort them; their commission is to speak comfortably to them; and they are qualified for it, by inward comforts in their own souls; the Gospel they preach, and the message they bring, is of a comfortable nature; the Spirit of God acts by them, and with them as a comforter; and sad indeed is the state of Zion, or the church of Christ, when it has no comforters.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 19-24 - The
    gospel was a mystery till made known by Divine revelation; and it is the work of Christ's ministers to declare it. The best and mos eminent ministers need the prayers of believers. Those particularl should be prayed for, who are exposed to great hardships and perils in their work. Peace be to the brethren, and love with faith. By peace understand all manner of peace; peace with God, peace of conscience peace among themselves. And the grace of the Spirit, producing fait and love, and every grace. These he desires for those in whom they wer already begun. And all grace and blessings come to the saints from God through Jesus Christ our Lord. Grace, that is, the favour of God; an all good, spiritual and temporal, which is from it, is and shall be with all those who thus love our Lord Jesus Christ in sincerity, an with them only __________________________________________________________________
