Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Galatians 4:28

_ _ we — The oldest manuscripts and versions are divided between “we” and “ye.” “We” better accords with Galatians 4:26, “mother of us.

_ _ children of promise — not children after the flesh, but through the promise (Galatians 4:23, Galatians 4:29, Galatians 4:31). “We are” so, and ought to wish to continue so.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Galatians 4:21-31.
