Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Galatians 5:8

_ _ This persuasionGreek,The persuasion,” namely, to which you are yielding. There is a play on words in the original, the Greek for persuasion being akin to “obey” (Galatians 5:7). This persuasion which ye have obeyed.

_ _ cometh not of — that is “from.” Does not emanate from Him, but from an enemy.

_ _ that calleth you — (Galatians 5:13; Galatians 1:6; Philippians 3:14; 1 Thessalonians 5:24). The calling is the rule of the whole race [Bengel].
