    SEV Biblia, Chapter 12:4

    Pero hay repartimiento de dones; mas el mismo Espíritu es .

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Corinthians 12:4

    Verse 4. There are diversities of
    gifts] carismatwn? Gracious endowments, leading to miraculous results; such as the gift of prophecy, speaking different tongues, &c. And these all came by the extraordinary influences of the Holy Spirit.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 4. Now there are diversities of
    gifts , etc.] Of spiritual ones, as in ( 1 Corinthians 12:1) which spring from the free grace, and good will and pleasure of God, and are not owing to the merits of men; and therefore such who have the largest share of them should not boast of them as acquired by themselves, or be puffed up on account of them; and those who have the smallest measure should be content and thankful; for though the gifts are different, some have greater, and others lesser, none have all, but all have some, yet not alike: but the same Spirit ; is the author and giver of all as he pleases; the lesser gifts, and the smallest degree of them, come from the Spirit of God, as well as the greater. Gifts here seem to be the general name for all that follow; and administrations and operations are the two species of them; and of these a particular account is afterwards given.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1-11 -
    Spiritual gifts were extraordinary powers bestowed in the first ages to convince unbelievers, and to spread the gospel. Gifts and grace greatly differ. Both were freely given of God. But where grace is given, it is for the salvation of those who have it. Gifts are for the advantage and salvation of others; and there may be great gifts wher there is no grace. The extraordinary gifts of the Holy Spirit wer chiefly exercised in the public assemblies, where the Corinthians see to have made displays of them, wanting in the spirit of piety, and of Christian love. While heathens, they had not been influenced by the Spirit of Christ. No man can call Christ Lord, with believin dependence upon him, unless that faith is wrought by the Holy Ghost. N man could believe with his heart, or prove by a miracle, that Jesus wa Christ, unless by the Holy Ghost. There are various gifts, and variou offices to perform, but all proceed from one God, one Lord, one Spirit that is, from the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, the origin of all spiritual blessings. No man has them merely for himself. The more he profits others, the more will they turn to his own account. The gift mentioned appear to mean exact understanding, and uttering the doctrines of the Christian religion; the knowledge of mysteries, an skill to give advice and counsel. Also the gift of healing the sick the working of miracles, and to explain Scripture by a peculiar gift of the Spirit, and ability to speak and interpret languages. If we have any knowledge of the truth, or any power to make it known, we must giv all the glory of God. The greater the gifts are, the more the possesso is exposed to temptations, and the larger is the measure of grac needed to keep him humble and spiritual; and he will meet with mor painful experiences and humbling dispensations. We have little cause to glory in any gifts bestowed on us, or to despise those who have the not. (1Co 12:12-26)

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    4. Diversities (diaireseiv). Only here in the New Testament. It may also be rendered distributions. There is no objection to combining both meanings, a
    distribution of gifts implying a diversity. Ver. 11, however, seems to favor distributions.

    Gifts (carismatwn). See on Rom. i. 11.

    Administrations (diakoniwn). Rev., better, ministrations. Compare Eph. iv. 12. In the New Testament commonly of spiritual service of an official character. See Acts i. 25; vi. 4; xx. 24; Rom. xi. 13; 1 Timothy i. 12; and on minister, Matt. xx. 26.


    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    12:4 {Diversities} (diaireseis). Old word for distinctions, differences, distributions, from diairew, to distribute, as diairoun (dividing, distributing) in verse #11. Only here in the N.T. {Of gifts} (carismatwn). Late word and chiefly in Paul (cf. #Ro 12:6) in N.T. (except #1Pe 4:19), but some examples in papyri. It means a favor (from carizomai) bestowed or received without any merit as in #Ro 1:11.
