Galatians 4:10

_ _ To regard the observance of certain days as in itself meritorious as a work, is alien to the free spirit of Christianity. This is not incompatible with observing the Sabbath or the Christian Lord’s day as obligatory, though not as a work (which was the Jewish and Gentile error in the observance of days), but as a holy mean appointed by the Lord for attaining the great end, holiness. The whole life alike belongs to the Lord in the Gospel view, just as the whole world, and not the Jews only, belong to Him. But as in Paradise, so now one portion of time is needed wherein to draw off the soul more entirely from secular business to God (Colossians 2:16). “Sabbaths, new moons, and set feasts” (1 Chronicles 23:31; 2 Chronicles 31:3), answer to “days, months, times.” “Months,” however, may refer to the first and seventh months, which were sacred on account of the number of feasts in them.

_ _ timesGreek, “seasons,” namely, those of the three great feasts, the Passover, Pentecost, and Tabernacles.

_ _ years — The sabbatical year was about the time of writing this Epistle, a.d. 48 [Bengel].

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Galatians 4:8-11.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Galatians 4:10

Ye observe days — Jewish sabbaths. And months — New moons. And times — As that of the passover, pentecost, and the feast of tabernacles. And years — Annual solemnities. it does not mean sabbatic years. These were not to be observed out of the land of Canaan.

correction of former post.
moed is strong's Hebrew#4150
- seth (2/17/2017 11:38:30 AM)
In Galatians 4:10, the word pa/ra/tey/reh/is/they is a combination of pa/ra/tey/reo (strong's Greek#3906: to inspect alongside; note insidiously or scrupulously) and is/they (plural of strong's Greek#2468: 2nd person imperative present of strong's Greek#1510 be thou: give thyself wholly to.)
Since this word is an imperative Paul is COMMANDING the Galatians to observe days [24hrs, sun down to sun down], and months [new moon to new moon], and times [(plural of strong's Greek#2540 kai/rous: an occasion; set or appointed time) and equal to mo/ed/im (plural of strong's Hebrew#2150 mo/ed: an appointment; fixed time or season, specifically a festival; assembly...)], and years[from barley harvest to barley harvest to account sabbatical and jubilee years].
