Galatians 6:7 Parallel
Commentary
Clarke's Commentary on the Bible

Be not deceived - Neither deceive yourselves, nor permit yourselves to be deceived by others. He seems to refer to the Judaizing teachers.

God is not mocked - Ye cannot deceive him, and he will not permit you to mock him with pretended instead of real services.

Whatsoever a man soweth - Whatsoever kind of grain a man sows in his field, of that shall he reap; for no other species of grain can proceed from that which is sown. Darnel will not produce wheat, nor wheat, darnel.
