Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Galatians 3:14

_ _ The intent of “Christ becoming a curse for us”; “To the end that upon the Gentiles the blessing of Abraham (that is, promised to Abraham, namely, justification by faith) might come in Christ Jesus” (compare Galatians 3:8).

_ _ that we might receive the promise of the Spirit — the promised Spirit (Joel 2:28, Joel 2:29; Luke 24:49). This clause follows not the clause immediately preceding (for our receiving the Spirit is not the result of the blessing of Abraham coming on the Gentiles), but “Christ hath redeemed us,” etc.

_ _ through faith — not by works. Here he resumes the thought in Galatians 3:2. “The Spirit from without, kindles within us some spark of faith Whereby we lay hold of Christ, and even of the Spirit Himself, that He may dwell within us” [Flacius].

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Galatians 3:6-18.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Galatians 3:14

That the blessing of Abraham — The blessing promised to him. Might come on the gentiles — Also. That we — Who believe, whether Jews or gentiles. Might receive the promise of the Spirit — Which includes all the other promises. Through faith — Not by works; for faith looks wholly to the promise.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Galatians 3:14

(16) That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.

(16) A conclusion of all that was said before in the handling of the fifth and sixth reasons, that is, that both the Gentiles are made partakers of the free blessing of Abraham in Christ, and also that the Jews themselves, of whose number the apostle counted himself to be, cannot obtain that promised grace of the Gospel, which he calls the Spirit, except by faith. And the apostle applies the conclusion in turn, both to the one and to the other, preparing himself a way to the next argument, by which he declares that the one and only seed of Abraham, which is made of all peoples, cannot be joined and grow up together in any other way but by faith in Christ.
