Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Galatians 6:7

_ _ God is not mocked — The Greek verb is, literally, to sneer with the nostrils drawn up in contempt. God does not suffer Himself to be imposed on by empty words: He will judge according to works, which are seeds sown for eternity of either joy or woe. Excuses for illiberality in God’s cause (Galatians 6:6) seem valid before men, but are not so before God (Psalms 50:21).

_ _ soweth — especially of his resources (2 Corinthians 9:6).

_ _ thatGreek, “this”; this and nothing else.

_ _ reap — at the harvest, the end of the world (Matthew 13:39).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Galatians 6:1-10.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Galatians 6:7

God is not mocked — Although they attempt to mock him, who think to reap otherwise than they sow.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Galatians 6:7

(6) Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.

(6) He commends liberality towards the poor, and first of all chides those who were not ashamed to pretend this and that, and all because they would not help their neighbours, as though they could deceive God. And afterward he compares alms to a spiritual sowing which will have a most plentiful harvest, so that it will be very profitable: and compares being a covetous miser to sowing carnally, from which nothing can be gathered but such things as fade away, and eventually perish.
