4 Ye are [a]abolished from Christ: whosoever are [b]justified by the Law, ye are fallen from grace.
5 [c]For we through the [d]Spirit wait for the hope of righteousness through faith.
6 [e]For in Jesus Christ neither circumcision availeth anything, neither [f]uncircumcision, [g]but [h]faith which worketh by love.
Galatians 5:4That is, as he himself expoundeth it afterwards, ye are fallen from grace.
Galatians 5:4That is, seek to be justified by the Law, for in deed no man is justified by the Law.
Galatians 5:5He privily compareth the new people with the old: for it is certain that they also did ground all their hope of justification and life in faith and not in circumcision, but so, that their faith was wrapped in the external and ceremonial worship: but our faith is bare and content with spiritual worship.
Galatians 5:6He addeth a reason for that now circumcision is abolished, seeing that Christ is exhibited unto us with full plenty of spiritual circumcision.
Galatians 5:6He maketh mention also of uncircumcision, lest the Gentiles should please themselves in it, as the Jews do in circumcision.
Galatians 5:6The taking away of an objection: If all that worship of the Law be taken away, wherein then shall we exercise ourselves? In charity, saith Paul: for faith, whereof we speak, cannot be idle, nay it bringeth forth daily fruits of charity.
Galatians 5:6So is true faith distinguished from counterfeit faith: for charity is not joined to faith as a fellow cause, to help forward our justification with faith.
