    SEV Biblia, Chapter 12:6

    Y hay repartimiento de operaciones; mas el mismo Dios es, quien obra todas las cosas en todos.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Corinthians 12:6

    Verse 6. Diversities of
    operations] energhmatwn? Miraculous influences exerted on others; such as the expulsion of demons, inflicting extraordinary punishments, as in the case of Ananias and Sapphira, Elymas the sorcerer, &c., the healing of different diseases, raising the dead, &c.: all these proceeded from God the Father, as the fountain of all goodness and power, and the immediate dispenser of every good and perfect gift.

    In the three preceding verses we find more than an indirect reference to the doctrine of the sacred Trinity.

    GIFTS are attributed to the Holy Spirit, ver. 4.

    ADMINISTRATIONS to the Lord Jesus, ver. 5.

    OPERATIONS to God the Father, ver. 6.

    He who may think this fanciful must account for the very evident distinctions here in some more satisfactory way.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 6. And there are diversities of operations , There are some that are ordinary, as the good work of grace, and the several parts of it, the work of faith, the labour of love, and patience of hope, which the Spirit of God begins, carries on, and finishes in all the elect of God, and members of Christ; and there are others which are extraordinary, and are here meant, and hereafter specified. But it is the same God which worketh all in all . Interpreters in general understand by God here, God the Father; as by the Lord in the preceding verse, the Lord Jesus Christ, as distinct from the Spirit in ( 1 Corinthians 12:4) and apprehend that this furnishes out a considerable proof of a trinity of persons in the Godhead, which I will not deny; but I rather think that the Holy Ghost is designed in each verse, by Spirit, Lord, and God; since the various gifts, administrations, and operations, are particularly and peculiarly ascribed to him in the following verses; and the distribution of them is said to be the effect of his sovereign will; and so we have a most illustrious testimony of his proper deity and personality; who is the only true Jehovah with the Father and Son, to which the word Lord in the New Testament generally answers, and who is the omnipotent God, which worketh all in all; all the works of nature throughout the universe, and all the, works of grace in the hearts of all his people, and all the extraordinary operations effected by any of them.

    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

    6.
    Operations (energhmata). Rev., workings. Outward manifestations and results of spiritual gifts. The kindred word ejnergeia energy is used only by Paul: and only of superhuman good or evil. Compare Ephesians i. 19; iii. 7; Col. ii. 12. See on Mark vi. 14.

    Worketh (energwn). Etymologically akin to operations. See on Mark vi. 14; Jas. v. 16.

    All (ta panta). Or them all. The article shows that they are regarded collectively.


    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    12:6 {Of workings} (energematwn). Late word, here only in N.T., the effect of a thing wrought (from energew, to operate, perform, energize). Paul uses also the late kindred word energeia (#Col 1:29; 2:12) for efficiency. {Who worketh all things in all} (ho energwn ta panta en pasin). Paul is not afraid to say that God is the Energy and the Energizer of the Universe. "I say that the magnet floats in space by the will of God" (Dr. W. R. Whitney, a world figure in science). this is his philosophic and scientific theory of the Cosmos. No one has shown Paul's philosophy and science to be wrong. Here he is speaking only of spiritual gifts and results as a whole, but he applies this principle to the universe (ta panta) in #Col 1:16 (of Christ) and in #Ro 11:36 (of God). Note the Trinity in these verses: the same Spirit (verse #4), the same Lord (Jesus) in verse #5, the same God (the Father) in verse #6.
