    VERSE (7) -
    1Co 13:1

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 14:7

    Ciertamente las cosas inanimadas que hacen sonidos, como la flauta o la vihuela, si no dieren distincin de voces, ¿cmo se sabr lo que se tae con la flauta, o con la vihuela?

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Corinthians 14:7

    Verse 7. And even things without
    life] I may, as if he had said, illustrate this farther by referring to a pipe or harp; if these were to utter mere sounds without order, harmony, or melody, though every tone of music might be in the sounds, surely no person could discern a tune in such sounds, nor receive pleasure from such discords: even so is the person who speaks in an unknown tongue, but does not interpret. His speech tends no more to edification than those discordant and unmeaning sounds do to pleasure and delight.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 7. And even things without
    life giving sound , etc.] He instances in things inanimate, that have neither reason, sense, nor life, in musical instruments, and these of various sorts: whether pipe or harp ; wind music, or hand music; either that which is blown with the breath, or pressed or stricken with the hand: except they give a distinction in the sounds ; or tunes, so as one may be discerned from another; as that this is such a musical note, and that is another: how shall it be known what is piped or harped ? what tune is played; such an use of instruments would be a mere jargon, and not music, and so yield no pleasure to the ear, or mind; and just the like must speaking in an unknown tongue be, to one that understands it not.

    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.
