    SEV Biblia, Chapter 5:3

    Y otra vez vuelvo a protestar a todo hombre que se circuncidare, que est obligado a hacer toda la ley.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Galatians 5:3

    Verse 3. He is a
    debtor to do the whole law.] Lays himself, by receiving circumcision, under the obligation to fulfill all its precepts, ordinances, &c.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 3. For I testify again to every man , etc..] This is the form of an
    oath, a calling God to witness, swearing by the living God, and declaring as in his presence to every man, whether Jew or Gentile, whoever he be: that is circumcised ; in order to obtain salvation, and as necessary to it: that he is a debtor to do the whole law ; and this it is that made circumcision an insupportable yoke, for that itself might be bore, and was bore by children of eight days old; but the fulfilling of the whole law cannot be done by any man; and yet everyone that is circumcised, in order to procure righteousness and life, is bound to keep the whole law; because the law is only his righteousness, when he observes all that is required in it, and as the Lord has commanded; if he does not, he is pronounced accursed: and this proves what was before said, that Christ is of no profit to such persons; because they reject him and his righteousness, and, as much as in them lie, make void his obedience, sufferings, and death: hence the same thing is repeated, though not in the same words, in the next verse.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1-6 -
    Christ will not be the Saviour of any who will not own and rely upo him as their only Saviour. Let us take heed to the warnings an persuasions of the apostle to stedfastness in the doctrine and libert of the gospel. All true Christians, being taught by the Holy Spirit wait for eternal life, the reward of righteousness, and the object of their hope, as the gift of God by faith in Christ; and not for the sak of their own works. The Jewish convert might observe the ceremonies of assert his liberty, the Gentile might disregard them or might attend to them, provided he did not depend upon them. No outward privileges of profession will avail to acceptance with God, without sincere faith in our Lord Jesus. True faith is a working grace; it works by love to God and to our brethren. May we be of the number of those who, through the Spirit, wait for the hope of righteousness by faith. The danger of ol was not in things of no consequence in themselves, as many forms an observances now are. But without faith working by love, all else is worthless, and compared with it other things are of small value.

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    3. Again (palin). Probably with
    reference to what he had said at his last visit.

    Every man. Emphasizing and particularising the general to you, you, in verse 2.

    A debtor (ofeilethv). In N.T. mostly of one under moral obligation. So in the sense of sinner, Matt. vi. 12; Luke xiii. 4. Comp. Rom. i. 14; viii. 12. Similarly the verb ojfeilein to owe, as Luke xi. 4; xvii. 10; Romans xv. 1, etc., though it is frequent in the literal sense.

    To do the law (poihsai). Rare in N.T. See John vii. 19; Rom. ii. 13, 25 (prasshv). Threin to observe the law, the tradition, the commandment, Matt. xix. 17; Mark vii. 9; John xiv. 15; Acts xv. 5 Jas. ii. 10: plhroun to fulfill the law, Rom. xiii. 8; Gal. v. 14; comp. ajnaplhroun Galatians vi. 2: fulassein to keep or guard the law, Acts vii. 53; xxi. 24; Galatians vi. 13: also with commandments, word of God or of Christ, ordinances of the law, Matt. xix. 20; Mark x. 20; Luke xi. 28; John xii. 47; Romans ii. 26. Telein to carry out the law, Rom. ii. 27; Jas. ii. 8. Poihsai is to perform what the law commands: threin to observe, keep an eye on with the result of performing: fulassein to guard against violation: telein to bring to fulfillment in action.

    The whole law (olon). Comp. Jas. ii. 10. Submission to circumcision commits one to the whole law. It makes him a party to the covenant of the law, and the law requires of every one thus committed a perfect fulfillment, Gal. iii. 10.


    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    5:3 {A debtor} (ofeiletes). Common word from ofeilw, to owe for one who has assumed an obligation. See on Mt 6:12. See #Ga 3:10. He takes the curse on himself.
