    VERSE (33) -
    :24

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 10:33

    como tambin yo en todas las cosas complazco a todos, no procurando mi propio beneficio, sino el de muchos, para que sean salvos.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Corinthians 10:33

    Verse 33. Even as I please all
    men] Act as I do: forgetting myself, my own interests, convenience, ease, and comfort, I labour for the welfare of others; and particularly that they may be saved. How blessed and amiable was the spirit and conduct of this holy man! THIS chapter has already presented the serious reader with a variety of maxims for his regulation. - 1. As to his own private walk; 2. His domestic duties; and 3. His connection with the Church of God. Let us review some of the principal parts.

    1. We should be on our guard against what are called little sins, and all occasions and excitements to sin. Take heed what company you frequent.

    One thing, apparently harmless, may lead by almost imperceptible links to sins of the deepest dye. See the example in this chapter: 1. The people sat down to eat and to drink. 2. They rose up to play, dance, and sing: and 3.

    They committed fornication, and brought upon themselves swift destruction.

    2. However conscious we may be of our own sincerity and uprightness, we should ever distrust ourselves. God has made nothing independent of himself; the soul has no principle of self-dependence either in itself or its attainments: it is wise, powerful, and happy, only while it is depending on infinite wisdom, unlimited power, and endless mercy.

    3. The Gentiles were in communion with demons by their idolatrous services. In what communion are those who feed themselves without fear, who eat with the glutton and drink with the drunkard? So they partake of the Lord Jesus who are under the influence of pride, self-will, hatred, censoriousness, &c., and who carry their self-importance and worldly spirit even into the house and worship of God? 4. A spirit of curiosity too much indulged may, in an irreligious man, lead to covetousness and theft: in a godly man, to a troublesome and unscriptural scrupulosity of conscience, productive of nothing but uneasiness to itself, and disturbance to others. Simplicity of heart saves from this, and is an excellent gift.

    5. In many actions we have a twofold rule-the testimony of God and charity: and in many things charity is the best interpreter of the testimony. The testimony often permits what charity forbids, because circumstances in time, place, &c., may render a thing improper on one occasion that might be proper on another.

    6. Pious Quesnel has well said: Every thing honours God when it is done for his sake; every thing dishonours him when any ultimate end is proposed beside his glory. It is an unchangeable principle of the Christian morality that all comes from God by his love, and all should be returned to him by ours. This rule we should keep inviolate.

    7. Though many of the advices given in this chapter appear to respect the Corinthians alone, yet there is none of them that is not applicable to Christians in general in certain circumstances. God has given no portion of his word to any people or age exclusively; the whole is given to the Church universal in all ages of the world. In reading this epistle let us seriously consider what parts of it apply to ourselves; and if we are disposed to appropriate its promises, let us act conscientiously, and inquire how many of its reprehensions we may fairly appropriate also.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 33. Even as I please all men in all things , etc.] The apostle sets himself as an example, though he was far from being a man pleaser, in the bad sense of that phrase; nor must these all things, in which he is said to please all men, be taken in the largest sense; but are to be understood of things indifferent, which might be done or avoided, without breaking the law of or contradicting the Gospel of Christ, or any of its rules and ordinances, to all which the apostle was inviolably attached; nor did he in these things seek to please men, but in all to act the part of a faithful servant of Christ, and steward of the mysteries of grace; (see Corinthians 9:19-22). Moreover, it is not to bc thought that in fact he pleased all men; it is certain he did not; but he studied to please them; he did all that in him lay; he took the most proper methods to do it, though they were sometimes ineffectual. Not seeking my own profit ; worldly profit and advantage, riches, wealth, the emoluments of life, ease, rest, and pleasure; and chiefly he means the use of liberty in things indifferent; he was willing to forego all for the good of others: but the profit of many, that they may be saved ; he neglected his own private advantage, and the gratifying of himself in anything which was otherwise lawful, when he saw that would be an offence to others, be an hinderance of the Gospel, and deter any from embracing the Christian doctrine; that so he might be the, means of promoting the spiritual profit and edification of many souls, that they might be saved in the Lord with an everlasting salvation; He does not say all, but many, knowing that all will not be saved, only the elect of God; and whereas he knew not who these were, nor where they lay, he behaved in this manner to all men, that he might be the instrument of the spiritual good and salvation of the chosen ones among them, by preaching the Gospel to them without offence.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 23-33 - There were
    cases wherein Christians might eat what had been offered to idols, without sin. Such as when the flesh was sold in the market a common food, for the priest to whom it had been given. But a Christia must not merely consider what is lawful, but what is expedient, and to edify others. Christianity by no means forbids the common offices of kindness, or allows uncourteous behaviour to any, however they ma differ from us in religious sentiments or practices. But this is not to be understood of religious festivals, partaking in idolatrous worship According to this advice of the apostle, Christians should take car not to use their liberty to the hurt of others, or to their ow reproach. In eating and drinking, and in all we do, we should aim a the glory of God, at pleasing and honouring him. This is the great en of all religion, and directs us where express rules are wanting. holy, peaceable, and benevolent spirit, will disarm the greates enemies __________________________________________________________________

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    10:33 {Mine own
    profit} (to emoutou sumferon). Old word from sumferw, to bear together, and explains use of verb in verse #23. {That they may be saved} (hina s"th"sin). First aorist passive subjunctive of swzw, to save, with hina purpose clause with same high motive as in #9:22. this is the ruling passion of Paul in his dealings with men.
