Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on Galatians 5:19-23.


Galatians 5:22

_ _ love — the leader of the band of graces (1 Corinthians 13:1-13).

_ _ gentlenessGreek, “benignity,” conciliatory to others; whereas “goodness,” though ready to do good, has not such suavity of manner [Jerome]. Alford translates, “kindness.”

_ _ faith — “faithfulness”; opposed to “heresies” [Bengel]. Alford refers to 1 Corinthians 13:7, “Believeth all things”: faith in the widest sense, toward God and man. “Trustfulness” [Conybeare and Howson].

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Galatians 5:13-26.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Galatians 5:22

Love — The root of all the rest. Gentleness — Toward all men; ignorant and wicked men in particular. Goodness — The Greek word means all that is benign, soft, winning, tender, either in temper or behaviour.
