Wesley's Notes for Galatians 3:11


3:11 But that none is justified by his obedience to the law in the sight of God - Whatever may be done in the sight of man, is farther evident from the words of Habakkuk, The just shall live by faith - That is, the man who is accounted just or righteous before God, shall continue in a state of acceptance, life, and salvation, by faith. This is the way God hath chosen. #Hab 2:4|.


People's Bible Notes for Galatians 3:11


Ga 3:11 Behold, his soul [which] is lifted up is not upright in him. To seek righteousness by the law is also contrary to the prophets, for Hab 2:4 says that the just shall live by faith, not by the works of the law.
