 “Ye are fallen from grace.” “Whosoever of you are justified by the law.” These saints had become bewitched by Judaizing teachers who taught that grace alone was not sufficient; “you must do your part to keep saved” (Gal. 1:6; 2:16; 3:3; 5:1; Acts 15:1,11,24; Rom. 6:14-15; 11:6; Eph. 2:8-9). (Help on Hard Verses by A.C. Brown)
 If they took that ground they made themselves responsible to keep it personally and wholly, and Christ was of no effect to them. They could not rest upon the work of Christ for righteousness, and then hold themselves responsible to fulfill righteousness themselves according to the law. The two things contradict each other. (Galatians 5 by J.N. Darby)
 As far as their experience went, Christ and His work had become nothing to them. They had fallen from grace. (Galatians 5 by H. Smith)

Ye are deprived of all profiti from the Christ as separated from him, as many as are justified by law; ye have fallen from grace.

JND Translation Notes

+
i
The word translated here "deprived of all profit" is hard to translate. The active form means to render anything useless and unprofitable, or miss an opportunity; as "annulled," Eph. 2.15. Here it is passive and with the preposition (apo) "from." Hence it is to be deprived of the profit or effect of anything. It is used in Rom. 7.6 ("we are clear") in the same form as here, for our deliverance from under the law; only there it refers not to profit, but to the action of the law. It had for them become void of effect. So here Christ. What the word speaks of is, not separation from Christ personally, but from what is for us in him.
