    SEV Biblia, Chapter 1:11

    Porque me ha sido declarado de vosotros, hermanos míos, por los que son de Clo, que hay entre vosotros contiendas;

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Corinthians 1:11

    Verse 11. By them which are of the
    house of Chloe] This was doubtless some very religious matron at Corinth, whose family were converted to the Lord; some of whom were probably sent to the apostle to inform him of the dissensions which then prevailed in the Church at that place. Stephanas, Fortunatus, and Achaicus, mentioned chap. xvi. 17, were probably the sons of this Chloe.

    Contentions] eridev, Altercations; produced by the scismata, divisions, mentioned above. When once they had divided, they must necessarily have contended, in order to support their respective parties.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 11. For it hath been declared unto me, of you, my brethren , etc.] Lest the above advice of the apostle should be thought to be impertinent and needless, and to proceed upon groundless suspicions and jealousies of his, he signifies that he not only had some broad hints of their contentions and divisions, but the whole affair was laid open, and made manifest to him: the thing was a clear point to him; he had no reason at all to doubt of the truth of it; nor could they deny it, the proof was so strong, the evidence so full, being given by them which are of the house of Chloe . Some take Chloe to be the name of a place; a city so called is said to have been in Cappadocia; but it seems rather to have been the name of a woman. Horace several times makes mention of a woman of this name, and so does Martial f3 . Pausanias calls the goddess Ceres by it, the goddess of husbandry; the word signifying green grass of the field. The person the apostle speaks of was one that very probably lived at Corinth, and was a member of the church there, and at the head of a family of great worth and credit; who being grieved at the growing animosities, and disturbances there raised, wrote to the apostle, and gave him a distinct account of them, desiring him to use his interest to put a stop to them. He mentions this family by name, to show that he had not took up an idle tale, and received reports from anybody, nor from a single person only, but from a family of repute among them; and who could have no other views in the relation of it to him, than the good of the church, and the glory of God: and what they had made out clearly to him was, that there are contentions among you ; about their ministers, as appears afterward, as well as about opinions in doctrines, and ceremonies in worship, which occasioned undue heats, and great indecencies, tending to make rents and schisms among them.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 10-16 - In the great things of
    religion be of one mind; and where there is no unity of sentiment, still let there be union of affection. Agreement in the greater things should extinguish divisions about the lesser. Ther will be perfect union in heaven, and the nearer we approach it of earth, the nearer we come to perfection. Paul and Apollos both wer faithful ministers of Jesus Christ, and helpers of their faith and joy but those disposed to be contentious, broke into parties. So liable ar the best things to be corrupted, and the gospel and its institution made engines of discord and contention. Satan has always endeavoured to stir up strife among Christians, as one of his chief devices agains the gospel. The apostle left it to other ministers to baptize, while he preached the gospel, as a more useful work.

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    11. It hath been declared (edhlwqh). Rev., signified, which is hardly
    strong enough. The word means to make clear, or manifest (dhlov). Compare ch. iii. 13. It may imply that Paul was reluctant to believe the reports, but was convinced by unimpeachable testimony.

    Of the household of Chloe (twn Clohv). See on Rom. xvi. 10 for the form of expression. The persons may have been slaves who had come to Ephesus on business for their mistress, or members of her family. Chloe means tender verdure, and was an epithet of Demeter (Ceres), the goddess of agriculture and rural life. It is uncertain whether she belonged to the Corinthian or to the Ephesian church.

    Contentions (eridev). Socrates in Plato's "Republic" distinguishes between disputing (erizein) and discussing (dialegesqai), and identifies contention (eriv) with gainsaying (antilogia), "Republic," v., 454. Compare Tit. iii. 9.


    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    1:11 {For it hath been signified unto me} (edelwqe gar moi). First aorist passive indicative of delow and difficult to render into English. Literally, It was signified to me. {By them of Chloe} (hupo twn cloes). Ablative case of the masculine plural article twn, by the (folks) of Chloe (genitive case). The words "which are of the household" are not in the Greek, though they correctly interpret the Greek, "those of Chloe." Whether the children, the kinspeople, or the servants of Chloe we do not know. It is uncertain also whether Chloe lived in Corinth or Ephesus, probably Ephesus because to name her if in Corinth might get her into trouble (Heinrici). Already Christianity was working a social revolution in the position of women and slaves. The name {Chloe} means tender verdure and was one of the epithets of Demeter the goddess of agriculture and for that reason Lightfoot thinks that she was a member of the freedman class like Phoebe (#Ro 16:1), hermes (#Ro 16:14), Nereus (#Ro 16:15). It is even possible that Stephanas, Fortunatus, Achaicus (#1Co 16:17) may have been those who brought Chloe the news of the schisms in Corinth. {Contentions} (erides). Unseemly wranglings (as opposed to discussing, dialegomai) that were leading to the {schisms}. Listed in works of the flesh (#Ga 5:19f.) and the catalogues of vices (#2Co 12:20; Ro 1:19f.; 1Ti 6:4).
