    SEV Biblia, Chapter 14:14

    Porque si yo orare en lengua desconocida , mi espíritu ora; mas mi entendimiento es sin fruto.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Corinthians 14:14

    Verse 14. For if I
    pray in an unknown tongue] If my prayers are composed of sentences and sayings taken out of the prophets, &c., and in their own language-my spirit prayeth, my heart is engaged in the work, and my prayers answer all the purpose of prayers to myself; but my understanding is unfruitful to all others, because they do not understand my prayers, and I either do not or cannot interpret them. See the note on ver. 19.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 14. For if I
    pray in an unknown tongue , etc.] In the Hebrew tongue, which the greatest part of the Jewish doctors insisted upon should be only used in prayer; which notion might be borrowed from them, and now greatly prevailed in the church at Corinth; and the custom was used by such as had the gift of speaking that language, even though the body and bulk of the people understood it not: my spirit prayeth ; I pray with my breath vocally; or else with affection and devotion, understanding what I say myself, and so am edified; or rather with the gift of the Spirit bestowed on me: but my understanding is unfruitful ; that is, what I say with understanding to myself is unprofitable to others, not being understood by them.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 6-14 - Even an
    apostle could not edify, unless he spoke so as to be understoo by his hearers. To speak words that have no meaning to those who hea them, is but speaking into the air. That cannot answer the end of speaking, which has no meaning; in this case, speaker and hearers ar barbarians to each other. All religious services should be so performe in Christian assemblies, that all may join in, and profit by them Language plain and easy to be understood, is the most proper for publi worship, and other religious exercises. Every true follower of Chris will rather desire to do good to others, than to get a name for learning or fine speaking.

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    14. Spirit (pneuma). The
    human spirit, which is moved by the divine Spirit. See on Rom. viii. 4.

    Understanding (nouv). See on Rom. vii. 23.

    Is unfruitful (akarpov estin). Furnishes nothing to others.


    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    14:14 {But my understanding is unfruitful} (ho de nous mou akarpos). My intellect (nous) gets no benefit (akarpos, without fruit) from rhapsodical praying that may even move my spirit (pneuma).
