Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on Galatians 5:19-23.


Galatians 5:21

_ _ tell ... before — namely, before the event.

_ _ I ... told you in time past — when I was with you.

_ _ you — who, though maintaining justification by the law, are careless about keeping the law (Romans 2:21-23).

_ _ not inherit ... kingdom of God — (1 Corinthians 6:9, 1 Corinthians 6:10; Ephesians 5:5).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Galatians 5:13-26.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Galatians 5:21

Revellings — Luxurious entertainments. Some of the works here mentioned are wrought principally, if not entirely, in the mind; and yet they are called "works of the flesh." Hence it is clear, the apostle does not by "the flesh" mean the body, or sensual appetites and inclinations only, but the corruption of human nature, as it spreads through all the powers of the soul, as well as all the members of the body. Of which I tell you before — Before the event, I forewarn you.
