Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Galatians 3:10

_ _ Confirmation of Galatians 3:9. They who depend on the works of the law cannot share the blessing, for they are under the curse “written,” Deuteronomy 27:26, Septuagint. PERFECT obedience is required by the words, “in all things.” CONTINUAL obedience by the word, “continueth.” No man renders this obedience (compare Romans 3:19, Romans 3:20). It is observable, Paul quotes Scripture to the Jews who were conversant with it, as in Epistle to the Hebrews, as said or spoken; but to the Gentiles, as written. So Matthew, writing for Jews, quotes it as “said,” or “spoken”; Mark and Luke, writing for Gentiles, as “written” (Matthew 1:22; Mark 1:2; Luke 2:22, Luke 2:23) [Townson].

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Galatians 3:10

They only receive it. For as many as are of the works of the law — As God deals with on that footing, only on the terms the law proposes, are under a curse; for it is written, Cursed is every one who continueth not in all the things which are written in the law. Who continueth not in all the things — So it requires what no man can perform, namely, perfect, uninterrupted, and perpetual obedience. Deuteronomy 27:26

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Galatians 3:10

(10) For as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse: (11) for it is written, Cursed [is] every one that continueth not in all things which are written in the book of the law to do them.

(10) The sixth argument, the conclusion of which is also in the former verse, taken from opposites, is this: they are accursed who are of the works of the Law, that is to say, who consider their righteousness to come from the performance of the Law. Therefore they are blessed who are of faith, that is, those who have righteousness by faith.

(11) A proof of the former sentence or proposition, and the proposition of this argument is this: cursed is he that does not fulfil the whole Law.
