Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Galatians 6:16

_ _ as many — contrasting with the “as many,” Galatians 6:12.

_ _ rule — literally, a straight rule, to detect crookedness; so a rule of life.

_ _ peace — from God (Ephesians 2:14-17; Ephesians 6:23).

_ _ mercy — (Romans 15:9).

_ _ Israel of God — not the Israel after the flesh, among whom those teachers wish to enroll you; but the spiritual seed of Abraham by faith (Galatians 3:9, Galatians 3:29; Romans 2:28, Romans 2:29; Philippians 3:3).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Galatians 6:11-18.
