    Definitions for Galatians 2:8

    Gentiles - A people; nations other than Israel.
    Wrought - Worked; made.

    Clarke's Commentary on Galatians 2:8

    For he that wrought effectually - Ὁ ενεργησας Πετρῳ, ενηργησε και εμοι· He who wrought powerfully with Peter, wrought powerfully also with me. He gave us both those talents which were suited to our work, and equal success in our different departments.

    Barnes' Notes on Galatians 2:8

    For he that wrought effectually in Peter ... - Or by the means or agency of Peter. The argument here is, that the same effects had been produced under the ministry of Paul among the Gentiles which had been under the preaching of Peter among the Jews. It is inferred, therefore, that God had called both to the apostolic office; see this argument illustrated in the notes at Acts 11:17.

    The same was mighty in me ... - In enabling me to work miracles, and in the success which attended the ministry.

    Wesley's Notes on Galatians 2:8

    2:8 For he that wrought effectually in Peter for the apostleship of the circumcision - To qualify him for, and support him in, the discharge of that office to the Jews. Wrought likewise effectually in and by me - For and in the discharge of my office toward the gentiles.
