Galatians Chapter 4

Galatians 4:3

Greek, "kosmos", means "mankind".

(See Scofield) - (Mat 4:8).

Galatians 4:19

gal 4:19

little children

The allegory (Gal 4:22-31) is addressed to justified but immature believers (compare (Co1 3:1); (Co1 3:2) who, under the influence of legalistic teachers, "desire to be under the law," and has, therefore, no application to a sinner seeking justification. It raises and answers, for the fifth time in this Epistle, the question, Is the believer under the law? (Gal 2:19-21); (Gal 3:1-33); (Gal 3:25); (Gal 3:26); (Gal 4:4-6); (Gal 4:4); (Gal 4:9-31).
