“But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the light: for whatsoever doth make manifest is light.”
King James Version (KJV)
5:13 But all things which are reproved, are thereby dragged out into the light, and made manifest - Shown in their proper colours, by the light. For whatsoever doth make manifest is light - That is, for nothing but light, yea, light from heaven, can make anything manifest.
Eph 5:13 But all things that are reproved. These works of darkness are to be reproved by Christians that their true character may be brought to light (Eph 5:11). Are made manifest by the light. If the light is thrown upon them they will be seen. For whatsoever doth make manifest is light. Whatever is brought to light is light. Even if wicked, when it is brought to light it enlightens men by revealing its real nature.
