    SEV Biblia, Chapter 6:23

    Paz sea a los hermanos y caridad con fe, por Dios Padre y el Seor Jess, el Cristo.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Ephesians 6:23

    Verse 23.
    Peace be to the brethren] If the epistle were really sent to the Ephesians, a people with whom the apostle was so intimately acquainted, it is strange that he mentions no person by name. This objection, on which Dr. Paley lays great stress, (see the preface to this epistle,) has not been successfully answered.

    Peace] All prosperity, and continual union with God and among yourselves; and love to God and man, the principle of all obedience and union; with faith, continually increasing, and growing stronger and stronger, from God the Father, as the fountain of all our mercies, and the Lord Jesus Christ, through whose sacrifice and mediation they all come.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 23. Peace [be] to the brethren , &c.] The members of the church at Ephesus, who stood in a spiritual relation to each other; meaning all prosperity outward and inward, temporal, spiritual, and eternal; especially peace of conscience under the sprinklings of the blood of Christ, and a view of peace made with God by that blood: and love with faith from God the Father, and the Lord Jesus Christ ; that is, an increase of these graces, and of the exercise of them, is wished for; for otherwise these brethren had both these graces, faith and love; (see Ephesians 1:15); which go together; faith works by love, and love discovers faith, and both are imperfect; faith has something lacking in it, and love is apt to grow cold, and need reviving and increasing; and these, and the increase of them, are from God the Father, who is the God of all grace, and from Jesus Christ, in whom all fulness of grace is; and these things are equally desired from the one as from the other, and shows a plurality of persons in the Godhead, and the equality of Christ with the Father; and such a wish expresses the apostle's great love and affection for the brethren, and points out the things they stand in need of; and which, being asked for such, might be expected to be enjoyed.

    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 __________________________________________________________________
