21 For just as the Father raises the dead and gives them life, even so the Son gives life to whom he is pleased to give it.
21 For as the Father raiseth up the dead, and quickeneth them; even so the Son quickeneth whom he will.
21 For as the Father raises the dead and gives them life, so also the Son gives life to whom he will.
21 for in the same way that the Father raises the dead and creates life, so does the Son. The Son gives life to anyone he chooses.
21 For as the Father raises the dead and gives life to them, even so the Son gives life to whom He will.
21 For just as the Father gives life to those he raises from the dead, so the Son gives life to anyone he wants.
Matthew Henry's Commentary on John 5:21
Commentary on John 5:17-23
(Read John 5:17-23)
The Divine power of the miracle proved Jesus to be the Son of God, and he declared that he worked with, and like unto his Father, as he saw good. These ancient enemies of Christ understood him, and became more violent, charging him not only with sabbath-breaking, but blasphemy, in calling God his own Father, and making himself equal with God. But all things now, and at the final judgment, are committed to the Son, purposely that all men might honour the Son, as they honour the Father; and every one who does not thus honour the Son, whatever he may think or pretend, does not honour the Father who sent him.
