Verse of the Day (January 21, 2020) #BMSeminary – Mocked (outwitted, outfoxed): To disobey God’s commands and then escape divine punishment would be to outwit God, thus making a mockery of Him and His Word. Soweth means “does,” “practices.” Reap could also be said, “be requited,” “recompensed.” Contextually, the Galatians cannot disregard the command to support their Christian instructors (v. 6) and escape divine discipline. For expands the principle of verse 7 to wider application. Soweth to his flesh means to conduct oneself by the evil dictates and desires of the sinful nature, thus practicing the deeds of the flesh (5:19–21). Such a person shall . . . reap corruption, that is, be requited with eternal destruction. Soweth to the Spirit means to live by His enabling help in accord with the Spirit’s prompting and leading, thus cultivating the fruit of 5:22, 23. Such a person shall . . . reap life everlasting, that is, be rewarded with eternal life. (KJV Study Bible)
