Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Galatians 1:7

_ _ another — A distinct Greek word from that in Galatians 1:6. Though I called it a gospel (Galatians 1:6), it is not really so. There is really but one Gospel, and no other gospel.

_ _ but — Translate, “Only that there are some that trouble you,” etc. (Galatians 5:10, Galatians 5:12). All I meant by the “different gospel” was nothing but a perversion by “some” of the one Gospel of Christ.

_ _ would pervertGreek, “wish to pervert”; they could not really pervert the Gospel, though they could pervert Gospel professors (compare Galatians 4:9, Galatians 4:17, Galatians 4:21; Galatians 6:12, Galatians 6:13; Colossians 2:18). Though acknowledging Christ, they insisted on circumcision and Jewish ordinances and professed to rest on the authority of other apostles, namely, Peter and James. But Paul recognizes no gospel, save the pure Gospel.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Galatians 1:6-9.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Galatians 1:7

Which, indeed, is not properly another gospel. For what ye have now received is no gospel at all; it is not glad, but heavy, tidings, as setting your acceptance with God upon terms impossible to be performed. But there are some that trouble you — The same word occurs, Acts 15:24. And would — If they were able. Subvert or overthrow the gospel of Christ — The better to effect which, they suggest, that the other apostles, yea, and I myself, insist upon the observance of the law.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Galatians 1:7

(4) Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would (f) pervert the gospel of Christ.

(4) He warns them in time to remember that there are not many Gospels; and therefore whatever these false apostles pretend who had the Law, Moses, and the fathers in their mouths, yet these ones had indeed corrupted the true Gospel. And he himself, indeed, also the very angels themselves (and therefore much more these false apostles) ought to be held accursed, if they go about to change the least thing that may be in the Gospel that he delivered to them before.

(f) For there is nothing more contrary to faith or free justification, than justification by the Law or by deeds.
