    VERSE (24) -
    Ge 2:25; 3:11

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 12:24

    Porque los que en nosotros son ms honestos, no tienen necesidad de nada; mas Dios orden el cuerpo (todo), dando ms abundante honor al que le faltaba;

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Corinthians 12:24

    Verse 24. For our
    comely parts have no need] It would be easy to go into great detail in giving an anatomical description of the different members and parts to which the apostle refers, but it would not probably answer the end of general edification; and to explain every allusion made by the apostle, would require a minuteness of description which would not be tolerated except in a treatise on the anatomy of the human body.

    My readers will therefore excuse my entering into this detail.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 24. For our comely parts have no need , etc.] As the face, eyes, nose, lips, cheeks, etc. which stand in no need of an external covering, of any outward ornament: so such as are blessed with the bounties of nature and providence, with the gifts of the Holy Spirit, and are eminent for grace and holiness, and are enabled to walk worthy of their calling, and to have their conversations as become the Gospel of Christ, holding the mystery of the faith in a pure conscience, these have no need of such a covering, as the former have, to hide and conceal them from the world: but God hath tempered the body together ; he hath composed it in such a forth, constituted it in such an order, mixed and united all its parts in such a manner, as that they are all beneficial to each other; and such is the harmonious contexture of the whole, that it is a most beautiful structure: having given more abundant honour to that part which lacked ; or, as the Syriac version renders it, which is the least; and such is the temperament and constitution of the church, having mixed rich and poor persons, of greater and lesser gifts, together, for mutual good.

    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.

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    24. Tempered together (sunekrasen). Only here and
    Heb. iv. 2. Lit., mixed together. Here the idea of mutual adjustment is added to that of mingling. Compare Plato on God's creating the soul and body. "He made her out of the following elements, and on this manner. Of the unchangeable and indivisible, and also of the divisible and corporeal He made (xunekerasato compounded) a third sort of intermediate essence, partaking of the same and of the other, or diverse" (see the whole passage, "Timaeus," 35).

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    12:24 {Tempered the
    body together} (sunekerasen to swma). First aorist active indicative of sunkerannumi, to mix together, old word, but in N.T. only here and #Heb 4:2. Plato used this very word of the way God compounded (sunekerasato) the various elements of the body in creating soul and body. Paul rejects the idea of the later Gnostics that matter is evil and the physical organs degrading. He gives a noble picture of the body with its wonderful organs planned to be the temple of God's Spirit (#6:19) in opposition to the Epicurean sensualists in Corinth. {To that part which lacked} (twi husteroumenwi). It is a true instinct that gives superior honor to the unseen organs of life.
