    SEV Biblia, Chapter 14:40

    Pero hgase todo decentemente y con orden.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Corinthians 14:40

    Verse 40. Let all things be done decently] eusxhmonwv? In their proper forms; with becoming
    reverence; according to their dignity and importance, Every thing in the Church of God should be conducted with gravity and composure, suitable to the importance of the things, the infinite dignity of the object of worship, and the necessity of the souls in behalf of which those religious ordinances are instituted.

    And in order.] kata taxin? Every thing in its place, every thing in its time, and every thing suitably.

    Let all things be done decently and in order, is a direction of infinite moment in all the concerns of religion, and of no small consequence in all the concerns of life. How much pain, confusion, and loss would be prevented, were this rule followed! There is scarcely an embarrassment in civil or domestic life that does not originate in a neglect of this precept. No business, trade, art, or science, can be carried on to any advantage or comfort, unless peculiar attention be paid to it. And as to religion, there can be absolutely none without it. Where decency and order are not observed in every part of the worship of God, no spiritual worship can be performed. The manner of doing a thing is always of as much consequence as the act itself. And often the act derives all its consequence and utility from the manner in which it is performed.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 40. Let all things be done decently and in order .] Which may refer not only to what is said in this chapter, but in the foregoing part of the epistle; go not to law before the unbelievers; let not a believing yokefellow depart from an unbelieving one; let not him that has knowledge sit in an idols temple, and eat meat there; let not a man pray with his head covered, and a woman with hers uncovered; come not to the house of God to eat and drink intemperately, thereby reflecting dishonour and scandal on the ordinance of the Lords supper; let not any speak in an unknown tongue in the church, without an interpreter, as if he was a madman, nor suffer women to teach in public; all which are very unbecoming, and contrary to the rules of decency: do not encourage animosities, factions, and parties; despise not the faithful ministers of the word, but honour and obey them in the Lord; neglect not the discipline of the church, lay on censures, and pass the sentence of excommunication on such as deserve them; keep the ordinances as they have been delivered, particularly that of the Lords supper; observe the rules prescribed for prophesying and speaking with tongues, and so all these things will be done according to the order of the Gospel: and the words may be considered as a general rule for the decent and orderly management of all things relating to the worship of God, and discipline of his house; that in all things a good decorum, and strict order, be observed, that nothing be done contrary to the rules of decency, and the laws and commandments of Christ.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 34-40 - When the
    apostle exhorts Christian women to seek information of religious subjects from their husbands at home, it shows that believin families ought to assemble for promoting spiritual knowledge. The Spirit of Christ can never contradict itself; and if their revelation are against those of the apostle, they do not come from the sam Spirit. The way to keep peace, truth, and order in the church, is to seek that which is good for it, to bear with that which is not hurtfu to its welfare, and to keep up good behaviour, order, and decency __________________________________________________________________

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    14:40 {Decently and in order} (euscemonws kai kata taxin). That is surely a good rule for all matters of
    church life and worship. It applies also to the function of women in church service.
