Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Galatians 2:6

_ _ Greek, “From those who,” etc. He meant to complete the sentence with “I derived no special advantage”; but he alters it into “they ... added nothing to me.”

_ _ accepteth — so as to show any partiality; “respecteth no man’s person” (Ephesians 6:9).

_ _ seemed to be somewhat — that is, not that they seemed to be what they were not, but “were reputed as persons of some consequence”; not insinuating a doubt but that they were justly so reputed.

_ _ in conference added — or “imparted”; the same Greek as in Galatians 1:16, “I conferred not with flesh and blood.” As I did not by conference impart to them aught at my conversion, so they now did not impart aught additional to me, above what I already knew. This proves to the Galatians his independence as an apostle.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Galatians 2:1-10.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Galatians 2:6

And they who undoubtedly were something — Above all others. What they were — How eminent soever. It is no difference to me — So that I should alter either my doctrine or my practice. God accepteth no man's person — For any eminence in gifts or outward prerogatives. In that conference added nothing to me — Neither as to doctrine nor mission.
