Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

1 Corinthians 7:19

_ _ Circumcision ... nothing, but ... keeping of ... commandments of God — namely, is all in all. In Galatians 5:6 this “keeping of the commandments of God” is defined to be “faith which worketh by love”; and in Galatians 6:15, “a new creature.” Circumcision was a commandment of God: but not for ever, as “love.”

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 1 Corinthians 7:17-24.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

1 Corinthians 7:19

Circumcision is nothing, and uncircumcision is nothing — Will neither promote nor obstruct our salvation. The one point is, keeping the commandments of God; "faith working by love."
