    SEV Biblia, Chapter 14:19

    pero en la Iglesia quiero ms hablar cinco palabras con mi sentido, para que ensee tambin a los otros, que diez mil palabras en lengua desconocida .

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Corinthians 14:19

    Verse 19. Yet in the
    church] As the grand object of public worship is the edification of those who attend, five words spoken so as to convey edification, were of much more consequence than ten thousand which, not being understood, could convey none. By the word glwssh, tongue, to which we add unknown, I suppose the apostle always means the Hebrew, for the reasons offered in the note on ver. 1.

    One of the greatest difficulties, says Bishop Pearce, in this epistle is contained in the words pneuma and nouv, spirit and understanding, which are frequently used in this chapter; and fixing the true meaning of these words will solve the difficulty. In this verse the apostle explains lalein tw voi, to speak with the understanding, by ina allouv kathchsw, that I might teach others; so that the sense of nouv, understanding, seems to be, that understanding which the hearer has of what is said; and this sense will agree well with, I will sing with the spirit, and with the understanding, ver. 15.

    He observes also that pneuma spirit, and nouv, understanding, have a sense opposite to each other; so that if nouv is rightly rendered, the understanding which another has of what is said; then pneuma will signify a man's own mind, i.e. his own understanding of what he himself speaks; and this sense agrees well with ver. 2: In the spirit he speaketh mysteries.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 19. Yet in the church I had rather speak five words , etc.] Referring not to the five books of Moses, as Jerom suggests, and much less, as the Papists say, to the five words, for this is my body; by the muttering of which they suppose the bread in the Lords supper to be transubtantiated into the body of Christ; but meaning a very few words, which he chose to speak in the church before the congregation, when and where saints were met together for public worship, for their edification and comfort, and the glory of God; for though at other times, and to other people, he might think fit to make use of his gift in speaking with divers tongues, yet at such a time and place he thought it much more eligible to say ever so few words with understanding : so as to be understood by others, as well as himself: that by my voice I might teach others also ; the doctrines of the Gospel, the mysteries of grace, the duty of men towards God and men, and one another: than ten thousand words in an unknown tongue ; than to deliver ever so long an oration in a language not understood by them, which could be of no use unto them; for though they might hear his voice, the sound of his words, yet thereby he could not teach and instruct them to their profit, unless they understood the language which he spoke; and therefore five words understood were more likely to be of use than ten thousand spoken in a strange language.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 15-25 - There can be no assent to prayers that are not understood. A trul
    Christian minister will seek much more to do spiritual good to men' souls, than to get the greatest applause to himself. This is provin himself the servant of Christ. Children are apt to be struck with novelty; but do not act like them. Christians should be like children void of guile and malice; yet they should not be unskilful as to the word of righteousness, but only as to the arts of mischief. It is proof that a people are forsaken of God, when he gives them up to the rule of those who teach them to worship in another language. They can never be benefitted by such teaching. Yet thus the preachers did wh delivered their instructions in an unknown tongue. Would it not make Christianity ridiculous to a heathen, to hear the ministers pray of preach in a language which neither he nor the assembly understood? But if those who minister, plainly interpret Scripture, or preach the grea truths and rules of the gospel, a heathen or unlearned person migh become a convert to Christianity. His conscience might be touched, the secrets of his heart might be revealed to him, and so he might be brought to confess his guilt, and to own that God was present in the assembly. Scripture truth, plainly and duly taught, has a wonderfu power to awaken the conscience and touch the heart.

    Teach (kathchsw). Orally. See on Luke i. 4.

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    14:19 {However in
    church} (alla en ekklesiai). Private ecstasy is one thing (cf. #2Co 12:1-9) but not in church worship. {That I may instruct} (hina katecesw). Final clause with hina. For the rare verb katecew see on Lu 1:4; Ac 18:25.
