People's Bible Notes for Ephesians 5:30


Eph 5:30 We are members of his body. We are all members of Christ's body, the church. But the church is his Bride. Of his flesh, and of his bones. The language of Ge 2:23, where Adam declares that his wife "is bone of his bone and flesh of his flesh", applies to our relation to Christ.

    Whoso privily slanders his neighbor, him will I cut off: him that has a high look and a proud heart will not I suffer. Behold, I am against thee, O thou most proud, says the Lord GOD of hosts: for thy day is come, the time that I will visit thee. And the most proud shall stumble and fall, and none shall raise him up: and I will kindle a fire in his cities, and it shall devour all round about him.
