    SEV Biblia, Chapter 5:14

    Porque toda la ley en esta sola palabra se cumple: Amaras a tu projimo como a ti mismo.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Galatians 5:14

    Verse 14. For all the
    law] Which respects our duty to our fellows, is fulfilled - is comprehended, in one word: Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. See the notes on Matt. xix. 19, and Romans xiii. 9.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 14. For all the
    law is fulfilled in one word , etc..] Not the ceremonial law, to which acts of mercy, kindness, and love are opposed, and from which they are distinguished; but the law of the decalogue given to Moses on Mount Sinai, and by him to the people of the Jews; and intends either only the second table of it, since only love to the neighbour is mentioned; or else the whole of it, both tables, since it is said, all the law; which by Christ is reduced to two heads, love to God, and love to the neighbour; and though the former is not here expressed, it is implied as a cause in the effect, for the love of God is the cause, and so the evidence of love to the neighbour; nor can there be the one without the other. The two tables of the law consist of yrbdh tr[ , ten words; as the Jews commonly call them, and we the decalogue, and yet they are fulfilled in one; that is, they are to be brought into such a compendium, reduced to such an head; or as the apostle in a parallel place says, they may briefly be comprehended in this saying, ( Romans 13:9). The Jews make the commandments of the law to be a very large number indeed, but at last reduce them to one, as the apostle here does, six hundred and thirteen commandments (they say f115 ) were given to Moses David came and reduced them to eleven, Psalm xv, Isaiah came and reduced them to six, ( Isaiah 33:15) Micah came and reduced them to three, ( Micah 6:8) Isaiah came and reduced them to two, ( Isaiah 56:1), Amos came and reduced them to one, ( Amos 5:4) but this being objected to, it is observed that Habakkuk came, tja l[ dym[jw , and reduced them to one, ( Habakkuk 2:4) that is faith, as here the apostle reduces them to love: even in this, thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself : these words are taken out of ( Leviticus 19:18) and which R. Akiba says f116 , agreeably with the apostle, whose contemporary he was, is hrwtb lwdg llk , the grand general rule in the law; or the grand comprehensive of the law: the object of love, the neighbour, signifies not only, as there the Jews explain it, those of their own people, or proselytes to their religion; but all sorts of men, whether in a natural, civil, or spiritual relation; and whether those that do us good or do us ill, friends or enemies: the measure or rule of love is, as thyself; and designs not an equality of affection, but a likeness of effects; that is, to do the same kind acts of love to others, one would choose to have done to ourselves: and this is the fulfilling of the law; that is, so far as a man loves aright, so far he fulfils the law; not that he does it perfectly, for man in his fallen state is unable to do that, for the law is exceeding broad, and reaches to thoughts, desires, and inclinations, as well as to words and deeds; and besides, love said to be the fulfilling of it, is imperfect; hence then there can be no justification by works of charity, nor by any services of men, which at best are imperfect; nor are they done in their own strength, and without the grace of God; nor is there any that can be said to have fulfilled the law perfectly but Christ, and to him must we look for a justifying righteousness. These words contain a reason engaging to love one another, and to do all kind of offices of love to each other; since it is a main and principal thing contained in the law, and to which that may be reduced.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 13-15 - The
    gospel is a doctrine according to godliness, 1Ti 6:3, and is so fa from giving the least countenance to sin, that it lays us under the strongest obligation to avoid and subdue it. The apostle urges that all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this, Thou shalt love the neighbour as thyself. If Christians, who should help one another, an rejoice one another, quarrel, what can be expected but that the God of love should deny his grace, that the Spirit of love should depart, an the evil spirit, who seeks their destruction, should prevail? Happ would it be, if Christians, instead of biting and devouring one anothe on account of different opinions, would set themselves against sin in themselves, and in the places where they live.

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    14. All the
    law (o pav nomov). More correctly, the whole law. Comp. Matt. xxii. 40.

    Is fulfilled (peplhrwtai). Has been fulfilled. Comp. Rom. xiii. 8. The meaning is not embraced in, or summed up in, but complied with. In Rom. xiii. 9, ajnakefalaioutai is summed up, is to be distinguished from plhrwma hath fulfilled (ver. 8) and plhrwma fulfillment (ver. 10). The difference is between statement and accomplishment. See on do the law, ver. 3.


    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    5:14 {Even in this } (en twi). Just the article with en, "in the," but it points at the quotation from #Le 19:18. Jews (#Lu 10:29) confined "neighbor" (plesion) to Jews. Paul uses here a striking paradox by urging obedience to the law against which he has been arguing, but this is the moral law as proof of the new love and life. See also #Ro 13:8, precisely as Jesus did (#Mt 22:40).
