“Peace be to the brethren, and love with faith, from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.”
King James Version (KJV)
6:23 Peace - This verse recapitulates the whole epistle.
Eph 6:23,24 Peace [be] to the brethren, etc. As was his custom he closes with a benediction. Compare those of the preceding Epistles. NOTE.--Some have urged that the absence of individual salutations is a proof that this letter could not have been addressed to the Ephesians where he was so well acquainted. The same argument might apply to the Corinthian, Galatian and Philippian letters also, and indeed his letters to all the churches which he had founded. It rather implies that his acquaintances were so numerous that he could hardly have space to single out individuals, and sent his personal salutations by the messengers. Besides, there are reasons for the opinion that the Ephesian letter was intended also for other churches of "Asia".
