“And being made perfect, he became the author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey him;”
King James Version (KJV)
5:9 And being perfected - By sufferings, #Heb 2:10|; brought through all to glory. He became the author - The procuring and efficient cause. Of eternal salvation to all that obey him - By doing and suffering his whole will.
Heb 5:9 And being made perfect. Fitted in all points to be our high priest by his suffering; made, not a perfect man, for he was that already, but a perfect high priest. He became the author of eternal salvation. Was able to offer the gospel to all nations, and thus to save all them that obey him. He does not save men in disobedience.
