Galatians 1:16
To reveal his Son in me, that I might preach him among the heathen; immediately I conferred not with flesh and blood:









(6) Children's children.--Dr. Perowne illustrates from Virgil: "adspicies . . . natos natorum et qui nascentur ab illis." (Comp. Zechariah 8:4-5.)

And peace . . .--The conjunction spoils the passage. The psalm concludes with the prayer, "Peace upon Israel." (Comp. Psalm 125:5.)

Verse 6. - Yea, thou shalt see thy children's children. This is mentioned as the crowning blessing granted to Job in his second period of happiness (Job 42:16). It is here promised to the faithful generally, And peace upon Israel. This is best taken as a detached clause, like the concluding clause of Psalm 125, and rendered, "Peace be upon Israel."
