Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on Galatians 4:1-7.


Galatians 4:5

_ _ ToGreek,That He might redeem.

_ _ them ... under the law — primarily the Jews: but as these were the representative people of the world, the Gentiles, too, are included in the redemption (Galatians 3:13).

_ _ receive — The Greek implies the suitableness of the thing as long ago predestined by God. “Receive as something destined or due” (Luke 23:41; 2 John 1:8). Herein God makes of sons of men sons of God, inasmuch as God made of the Son of God the Son of man [Augustine on Psalms 52:1-9].

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Galatians 4:1-7.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Geneva Bible Translation Notes
