Ephesians 5:14 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

He saith

God. This use of the personal pronoun is frequent in Paul's writings. See Galatians 3:16; Ephesians 4:8; 1 Corinthians 6:16.

Awake. etc.

The quotation is probably a combination and free rendering of Isaiah 60:1; Isaiah 26:19. For similar combinations see on Romans 3:10; see on Romans 9:33. By some the words are regarded as the fragment of a hymn.

Shall give thee light

Rev., correctly, shall shine upon thee.
