    But God forbid that I should glory, save in the
    cross of our Lord Jesus Christ; by whom the world is crucified to me, and I to the world.

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 6:14

    Mas lejos est de mí gloriarme, sino en el madero del Seor nuestro Jess, el Cristo, por quien el mundo me es muerto a mí, y yo al mundo.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Galatians 6:14

    Verse 14. But
    God forbid that I should glory] Whatever others may do, or whatever they may exult or glory in, God forbid that I should exult, except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ; in the grand doctrine, that justification and salvation are only through Christ crucified, he having made an atonement for the sin of the world by his passion and death. And I glory, also, in the disgrace and persecution which I experience through my attachment to this crucified Christ.

    By whom the world is crucified unto me] Jewish rites and Gentile vanities are equally insipid to me; I know them to be empty and worthless. If Jews and Gentiles despise me, I despise that in which they trust; through Jesus, all are crucified to me - their objects of dependence are as vile and execrable to me, as I am to them, in whose sight these things are of great account.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 14. But God forbid that I should glory , etc..] The apostle, on the contrary, expresses his aversion to glorying in anything these men did; not in his outward carnal privileges, as a Jew; nor in his moral, civil, and legal righteousness; nor in his gifts and attainments; nor in his labours and success, as of himself; nor in the flesh of others, or in any outward corporeal subjection to any ordinance, legal or evangelical; his glorying and rejoicing were rather in the spirituality, the faith, hope, love, patience, order, and steadfastness of the saints, than in anything in the flesh, either his own or others: and indeed he chose not to glory in any thing, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ ; meaning either the infirmities, reproaches, tribulations, and persecutions, which he endured for the sake of Christ, and the preaching of his Gospel; or the Gospel, the doctrine of the cross of Christ, and salvation by it: or rather a crucified Christ himself, whom he preached; though counted foolishness by some, and was a stumbling to others: he gloried in him, and determined to know, and make known, none but him, in the business of salvation; he gloried in him as crucified, and in his cross; not in the wood of the cross, but in the effects of his crucifixion; in the peace, pardon, righteousness, life, salvation, and eternal glory, which come through the death of the cross; he gloried in Christ as his wisdom, righteousness, sanctification, and redemption: by whom the world is crucified to me : so that he feared not the worst men, and things in it, any more than he would one that was fastened to a cross, or dead; since Christ, by his crucifixion and death, had overcome the world, the prince of it, the men and malice of it, the sin that was in it, and had made him more than a conqueror also; his faith in a crucified Christ overcame the world likewise; so that he looked upon it as the Israelites saw the Egyptians, dead on the sea shore; nor did he affect and love, but trampled upon and despised, as crucified persons generally are, those things in it which are the most alluring to the flesh, the lusts of it; the doctrine of grace, of a crucified Christ, taught him to deny the riches, honours, pleasures, profits, and applause of the world; which were to him as dross, in comparison of the knowledge of Christ Jesus his Lord: the ceremonial law also, the elements of the world, were dead unto him, being nailed to the cross of Christ, to be of no further use and service unto men: and I unto the world ; that is, am crucified to the world, as the Syriac and Arabic versions express it; that is, he was despised by the world for the sake of a crucified Christ, as the world was by him, in comparison of him; the world had no affection for him, as he had none for the world; and as the ceremonial law was dead to him, so he was dead to that, through the body of Christ, and had nothing to do with these beggarly elements, nor they with him, which sense is confirmed by the following words.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 12-15 -
    Proud, vain, and carnal hearts, are content with just so much religio as will help to keep up a fair show. But the apostle professes his ow faith, hope, and joy; and that his principal glory was in the cross of Christ. By which is here meant, his sufferings and death on the cross the doctrine of salvation by a crucified Redeemer. By Christ, or by the cross of Christ, the world is crucified to the believer, and he to the world. The more we consider the sufferings of the Redeemer from the world, the less likely shall we be to love the world. The apostle wa as little affected by its charms, as a beholder would be by any thin which had been graceful in the face of a crucified person, when he beholds it blackened in the agonies of death. He was no more affecte by the objects around him, than one who is expiring would be struc with any of the prospects his dying eyes might view from the cross of which he hung. And as to those who have truly believed in Christ Jesus all things are counted as utterly worthless compared with him. There is a new creation; old things are passed away, and new views an dispositions are brought in under the regenerating influences of God the Holy Spirit. Believers are brought into a new world, and being created in Christ Jesus unto good works, are formed to a life of holiness. It is a change of mind and heart, whereby we are enabled to believe in the Lord Jesus, and to live to God; and where this inward practical religion is wanting, outward professions, or names, wil never stand in any stead.

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    14. Contrast of
    Paul's own boasting and its ground with those of the false apostles.

    By whom (di ou). The relative may refer either to the cross, by which, or to Christ, by whom. The cross was a stumbling-block to the Jews (ch. iii. 13), and it is the crucified Christ that Paul is emphasizing. Comp. ch. ii. 20; v. 24.

    The world (kosmov). See on John i. 9; Acts xvii. 24; 1 Cor. iv. 9.


    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    6:14 {Far be it from me} (emoi me genoito). Second aorist middle optative of ginomai in a negative (me) wish about the future with dative case: "May it not happen to me." See #2:17. The infinitive kaucasqai (to glory) is the subject of genoito as is common in the LXX, though not elsewhere in the N.T. {Hath been crucified unto me} (emoi estaurwtai). Perfect passive indicative of staurow, stands crucified, with the ethical dative again (emoi). this is one of the great sayings of Paul concerning his relation to Christ and the world in contrast with the Judaizers. Cf. #2:19f.; 3:13; 4:4f.; 1Co 1:23f.; Ro 1:16; 3:21ff.; 4:25; 5:18. {World} (kosmos) has no article, but is definite as in #2Co 5:19. Paul's old world of Jewish descent and environment is dead to him (#Php 3:3f.).
