Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Galatians 6:15

_ _ availeth — The oldest manuscripts read, “is” (compare Galatians 5:6). Not only are they of no avail, but they are nothing. So far are they from being matter for “glorying,” that they are “nothing.” But Christ’s cross is “all in all,” as a subject for glorying, in “the new creature” (Ephesians 2:10, Ephesians 2:15, Ephesians 2:16).

_ _ new creature — (2 Corinthians 5:17). A transformation by the renewal of the mind (Romans 12:2).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Galatians 6:11-18.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Galatians 6:15

For neither circumcision is anything, nor uncircumcision — Neither of these is of any account. But a new creation — Whereby all things in us become new.
