    SEV Biblia, Chapter 12:15

    Si dijere el pie: Porque no soy mano, no soy del cuerpo, ¿por eso no ser del cuerpo?

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Corinthians 12:15

    Verse 15. If the
    foot shall say, &c.] As all the members of the body are necessarily dependent on each other, and minister to the general support of the system, so is it in the Church. All the private members are intimately connected among themselves, and also with their pastors; without which union no Church can subsist.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 15. If the
    foot shall say , etc.] The lowest member of the body, which is nearest the earth, treads upon it, sustains the whole weight of the body, and performs the more drudging and fatiguing exercises of standing and walking; and may represent one that is in the lowest station in the church, a doorkeeper in the house of God; one that is really the least of saints, as well as thinks himself so; and has the smallest degree of heavenly affection, and knowledge of spiritual light and understanding; because I am not the hand ; the instrument of communication and of action; and may signify such an one, that liberally imparts to the necessities of others, who has it both in his hand and heart, and is ready to communicate; one that is full of good works, of charity towards men, and piety towards God; who does all things, Christ strengthening him, natural, civil, moral, and evangelical; yea, even miracles and mighty deeds are done by his hand: I am not of the body ; have no part in it, am no member of it, do not belong to it: is it therefore not of the body ? or it is not therefore not of the body, as the Syriac version renders it; that is, it is not for this word, as the Arabic, or so saying, as the Ethiopic, not of the body; it nevertheless belongs to it, and is a member of it, nor can it be otherwise: thus the meanest person in the mystical body, the church, though he should say, that because he is not so handy and useful as another, cannot give so largely, nor do so much as another, therefore he is no proper member of the church; it does not follow that so it is, for Christ, the head of the church, regards such as members; he admires the beauty of his churchs feet, and has provided for the covering, ornament, and security of them, being himself clothed with a garment down to the feet, which equally covers and adorns that part of the body as the rest; he does not break the bruised reed, nor quench the smoking flax, or despise the day of small things; he regards their prayers, and takes notice and accepts of their meanest services; and they are, and should be considered as members of the body, by the rest and by themselves, the mystical body, the church, though he should say, that because he is not so handy and useful as another, cannot give so largely, nor do so much as another, therefore he is no proper member of the church; it does not follow that so it is, for Christ, the head of the church, regards such as members; he admires the beauty of his churchs feet, and has provided for the covering, ornament, and security of them, being himself clothed with a garment down to the feet, which equally covers and adorns that part of the body as the rest; he does not break the bruised reed, nor quench the smoking flax, or despise the day of small things; he regards their prayers, and takes notice and accepts of their meanest services; and they are, and should be considered as members of the body, by the rest and by themselves.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 12-26 -
    Christ and his church form one body, as Head and members. Christian become members of this body by baptism. The outward rite is of Divin institution; it is a sign of the new birth, and is called therefore the washing of regeneration, Tit 3:5. But it is by the Spirit, only by the renewing of the Holy Ghost, that we are made members of Christ's body And by communion with Christ at the Lord's supper, we are strengthened not by drinking the wine, but by drinking into one Spirit. Each membe has its form, place, and use. The meanest makes a part of the body There must be a distinction of members in the body. So Christ's member have different powers and different places. We should do the duties of our own place, and not murmur, or quarrel with others. All the member of the body are useful and necessary to each other. Nor is there member of the body of Christ, but may and ought to be useful to fellow-members. As in the natural body of man, the members should be closely united by the strongest bonds of love; the good of the whol should be the object of all. All Christians are dependent one upo another; each is to expect and receive help from the rest. Let us the have more of the spirit of union in our religion.

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    12:15 {If the
    foot shall say} (ean eipei ho pous). Condition of third class (ean and second aorist subjunctive eipei). In case the foot say. {I am not of the body} (ouk eimi ek tou swmatos). I am independent of the body, not dependent on the body. {It is not therefore not of the body} (ou para touto ouk estin ek tou swmatos). Thinking or saying so does not change the fact. para touto here means "alongside of this " (cf. IV Macc. 10:19) and so "because of," a rare use (Robertson, _Grammar_, p. 616). The two negatives (ou--ouk) do not here destroy one another. Each retains its full force.
