Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Galatians 2:5

_ _ Greek, “To whom not even for an hour did we yield by subjection.” Alford renders the Greek article, “with THE subjection required of us.” The sense rather is, We would willingly have yielded for love [Bengel] (if no principle was at issue), but not in the way of subjection, where “the truth of the Gospel” (Galatians 2:14; Colossians 1:5) was at stake (namely, the fundamental truth of justification by faith only, without the works of the law, contrasted with another Gospel, Galatians 1:6). Truth precise, unaccommodating, abandons nothing that belongs to itself, admits nothing that is inconsistent with it [Bengel].

_ _ might continue with you — Gentiles. We defended for your sakes your true faith and liberties, which you are now renouncing.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Galatians 2:1-10.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Galatians 2:5

To whom we did not yield by submission — Although in love he would have yielded to any. With such wonderful prudence did the apostle use his Christian liberty ! circumcising Timothy, Acts 16:3, because of weak brethren, but not Titus, because of false brethren. That the truth of the gospel — That is, the true genuine gospel. Might continue with you — With you gentiles. So we defend, for your sakes, the privilege which you would give up.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

(c) By submitting ourselves to them, and betraying our own liberty.

(d) The true and sincere doctrine of the Gospel, which remained safe from being corrupted with any of these men's false doctrines.

(e) Under the Galatian's name, he understands all nations.
