    SEV Biblia, Chapter 14:3

    Mas el que profetiza, habla a los hombres para edificacin, y exhortacin, y consolacin.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Corinthians 14:3

    Verse 3. But he that prophesieth] The person who has the
    gift of teaching is much more useful to the Church than he is who has only the gift of tongues, because he speaks to the profit of men: viz. to their edification, by the Scriptures he expounds; to their exhortation, by what he teaches; and to their comfort, by his revelation. - Whitby. I must here refer to my sermon on this text, intitled, "The Christian Prophet and his Work," in which I have endeavoured to consider the whole of this subject at large.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 3. But he that prophesieth , etc.]
    Preaches, prays, or sings, in a language understood by the common people: speaketh unto men to edification ; to the building of them up in Christ, and on their most holy faith, so that they grow up as an holy temple to the Lord: and exhortation; to the more vigorous exercise of grace, and the more cheerful and fervent discharge of duty: and comfort ; of distressed minds, either through the temptations of Satan, or divine desertions, or inward corruptions, or outward afflictions; for all which ends and purposes the Scriptures are written, and gifts are bestowed on men to explain them; and which ends are answered when God gives a blessing to the word; but can never be expected, if delivered in a language not understood. This bears hard upon the Papists performing any part of divine worship in a language unintelligible to the common people.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1-5 - Prophesying, that is, explaining Scripture, is compared with speakin with
    tongues. This drew attention, more than the plain interpretatio of Scripture; it gratified pride more, but promoted the purposes of Christian charity less; it would not equally do good to the souls of men. What cannot be understood, never can edify. No advantage can be reaped from the most excellent discourses, if delivered in languag such as the hearers cannot speak or understand. Every ability of possession is valuable in proportion to its usefulness. Even fervent spiritual affection must be governed by the exercise of the understanding, else men will disgrace the truths they profess to promote.

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    3. To edification - exhortation -
    comfort (oikodomhn - paraklhsin - paramuqian). Omit to. For edification see on build up, Acts xx. 32. Exhortation, so American Rev. Rev., comfort. See on Luke vi. 24. Paramuqia comfort, Rev., consolation, occurs only here in the New Testament. Paramuqion, which is the same, in Philip. ii. 1. The two latter words are found together in Philip. ii. 1, and their kindred verbs in 1 Thess. ii. 11. The differences in rendering are not important. The words will bear either of the meanings in the two Revisions. If paraklhsin be rendered as Rev., comfort, paramuqia might be rendered incentive, which implies exhortation. Consolation and comfort border a little too closely on each other.

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    14:3 {Edification} (oikodomen).
    Building up. {Comfort} (paraklesin). Encouragement, calling to one's side. {Comfort} (paramuqian). Old word (from para, muqos, paramuqeomai #1Th 2:12 which see, a stimulating word), nowhere else in N.T., but paramuqion in #Php 2:1 with paraklesis as here. Edification, cheer, incentive in these words.
