The New John Gill Exposition of the Entire BibleGalatians 1:24
And they glorified God in me.
] Or "for me"; on his account;
for the wonderful grace bestowed on him and wrought in him; for the
surprising change that was made in him, that of a persecutor he
should become a preacher, which they ascribed, as he himself did, to
the abundant grace of God; they were greatly thankful and blessed
God, who had given him such large gifts, and made him so greatly
useful in the cause, and among the churches of Christ. And by
observing this, how much the churches in Judea were affected with
the grace of God vouchsafed to him, though they had never seen him
nor heard him, he tacitly strikes at and rebukes the false teachers,
and the Galatians that adhered to them, for their different
treatment of him; to whom he was not only known by face, but had
preach among them so fully, clearly, and powerfully, the Gospel of
the grace of God.
