Galatians 3:5

Supplieth (epicorhgwn). It is God. See on "2Co 9:10" for this present active participle. Cf. Philippians 1:19 ; 2 Peter 1:5 . Worketh miracles (energwn dunamei). On the word energew see 1 Thessalonians 2:13 ; 1 Corinthians 12:6 . It is a great word for God's activities ( Philippians 2:13 ). "In you" (Lightfoot) is preferable to "among you" for en umin ( 1 Corinthians 13:10 ; Matthew 14:2 ). The principal verb for "doeth he it" (poiei) is not expressed. Paul repeats the contrast in verse Matthew 2 about "works of the law" and "the hearing of faith."
