Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Galatians 6:14

_ _ Translate, “But as for me (in opposition to those gloriers ‘in your flesh,’ Galatians 6:13), God forbid that I,” etc.

_ _ in the cross — the atoning death on the cross. Compare Philippians 3:3, Philippians 3:7, Philippians 3:8, as a specimen of his glorying. The “cross,” the great object of shame to them, and to all carnal men, is the great object of glorying to me. For by it, the worst of deaths, Christ has destroyed all kinds of death [Augustine, Tract 36, on John, sec. 4]. We are to testify the power of Christ’s death working in us, after the manner of crucifixion (Galatians 5:24; Romans 6:5, Romans 6:6).

_ _ our — He reminds the Galatians by this pronoun, that they had a share in the “Lord Jesus Christ” (the full name is used for greater solemnity), and therefore ought to glory in Christ’s cross, as he did.

_ _ the world — inseparably allied to the “flesh” (Galatians 6:13). Legal and fleshly ordinances are merely outward, and “elements of the world” (Galatians 4:3).

_ _ is — rather, as Greek, “has been crucified to me” (Galatians 2:20). He used “crucified” for dead (Colossians 2:20, “dead with Christ”), to imply his oneness with Christ crucified (Philippians 3:10): “the fellowship of His sufferings being made conformable unto His death.”

Matthew Henry's Commentary

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Galatians 6:14

But God forbid that I should glory — Should boast of anything I have, am, or do; or rely on anything for my acceptance with God, but what Christ hath done and suffered for me. By means of which the world is crucified to me — All the things and persons in it are to me as nothing. And I unto the world — I am dead to all worldly pursuits, cares, desires, and enjoyments.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Galatians 6:14

(10) But God forbid that I should (m) glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world is crucified unto me, and I unto the world.

(10) He does not dwell in comparing himself with them, showing that on the other hand he rejoices in those afflictions which he suffers for Christ's sake, and as he is despised by the world, so does he in the same way consider the world as wicked. And this is the true circumcision of a true Israelite.

(m) When Paul uses this word in good sense or way, it signifies to rest a man's self wholly in a thing, and to content himself in it.
