Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Galatians 5:14

_ _ all the lawGreek, “the whole law,” namely, the Mosaic law. Love to God is presupposed as the root from which love to our neighbor springs; and it is in this tense the latter precept (so “word” means here) is said to be the fulfilling of “all the law” (Leviticus 19:18). Love is “the law of Christ” (Galatians 6:2; Matthew 7:12; Matthew 22:39, Matthew 22:40; Romans 13:9, Romans 13:10).

_ _ is fulfilled — Not as received text “is being fulfilled,” but as the oldest manuscripts read, “has been fulfilled”; and so “receives its full perfection,” as rudimentary teachings are fulfilled by the more perfect doctrine. The law only united Israelites together: the Gospel unites all men, and that in relation to God [Grotius].

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Galatians 5:13-26.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Galatians 5:14

For all the law is fulfilled in this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself — inasmuch as none can do this without loving God, 1 John 4:12; and the love of God and man includes all perfection. Leviticus 19:18.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Galatians 5:14

(13) For (h) all the law is fulfilled in one word, [even] in this; Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

(13) He sets forth the love of our neighbour, as a mark unto which all Christians ought to refer all their actions, and to that he cites the testimony of the Law.

(h) This particle "all" must be limited to the second table of the ten commandments.
