    SEV Biblia, Chapter 15:31

    Cada día trago la muerte por mantenerme en la gloriacin de haberlos enseado, la cual tengo en Cristo Jess Seor nuestro.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Corinthians 15:31

    Verse 31. I
    protest by your rejoicing] nh thn umeteran kauchsin? By your exaltation or boasting. Dr. Lightfoot understands this of "the boasting of the Corinthians against the apostle; that he considered himself continually trampled on by them; rejected and exposed to infamy and contempt; but that he took this as a part of the reproach of Christ; and was happy in the prospect of death and a glorious resurrection, when all those troubles and wrongs would terminate for ever." Instead of umeteran, YOUR exultation or boasting, hmeteran, OUR exultation, is the reading of the Codex Alexandrinus, and several others, with the AEthiopic, Origen, and Theophylact. This will lead to an easier sense: I declare by the exultation which I have in Christ Jesus, as having died for my offenses, and risen again for my justification, that I neither fear sufferings nor death; and am daily ready to be offered up, and feel myself continually exposed to death. But the common reading is probably to be preferred; for your glorying is the same as glorying on your account: I profess by the glorying or exultation which I have on account of your salvation, that I anticipate with pleasure the end of my earthly race.

    I die daily.] A form of speech for, I am continually exposed to death.

    The following passages will illustrate this. So Philo, p. 990. Flaccus, who was in continual fear of death, says: kaq ekasthn hmeran, mallon de wran, proapoqnhskw, pollouv qanatouv upomenwn anq enov tou teleutaiou? "Every day, rather every hour, I anticipate death; enduring many deaths before that last one comes." So Libanius, speaking of his own miseries and those of the people of Antioch, epist. 1320, page 615, says: eti zwntev teqnhkamen? "Though living, we are dead." Livy has a similar form of expression to signify continual danger, xxix. 17: Quotidie capitur urbs nostra, quotidie diripitur. "Daily is our city taken, daily is it pillaged."


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 31. I protest by your rejoicing , etc.] Some copies read, our rejoicing; and so the Ethiopic version, which seems most natural and easy; since it follows, which I have in Christ Jesus our Lord ; who in him could rejoice and glory in afflictions and sufferings, which he endured as a preacher of the Gospel for his sake; and which being certain and evident, and what might be depended upon, he makes a protestation by it, saying, I die daily ; which is to be understood, not in a spiritual sense of dying unto sin; he was dead unto sin, as to its damning power, through the death of Christ, and as to its governing power, through the Spirit and grace of Christ, but still it was living and dwelling in him; but in a corporeal sense: he instances in himself in particular, who was one that was in jeopardy or danger of his life every hour; he always bore in his body the dying of the Lord Jesus, and was continually delivered to death for Jesus sake; death was always working in him, he expected it every day, and was ready for it; he did not count his life dear unto himself, but was very willing to lay it down for the sake of Christ and his Gospel; which he would never have done, if he had not good reason to believe the doctrine of the resurrection of the dead.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 20-34 - All that are by
    faith united to Christ, are by his resurrection assure of their own. As through the sin of the first Adam, all men becam mortal, because all had from him the same sinful nature, so, throug the resurrection of Christ, shall all who are made to partake of the Spirit, and the spiritual nature, revive, and live for ever. There wil be an order in the resurrection. Christ himself has been the first-fruits; at his coming, his redeemed people will be raised befor others; at the last the wicked will rise also. Then will be the end of this present state of things. Would we triumph in that solemn an important season, we must now submit to his rule, accept his salvation and live to his glory. Then shall we rejoice in the completion of his undertaking, that God may receive the whole glory of our salvation that we may for ever serve him, and enjoy his favour. What shall thos do, who are baptized for the dead, if the dead rise not at all? Perhap baptism is used here in a figure, for afflictions, sufferings, an martyrdom, as Mt 20:22, 23. What is, or will become of those who have suffered many and great injuries, and have even lost their lives, for this doctrine of the resurrection, if the dead rise not at all Whatever the meaning may be, doubtless the apostle's argument wa understood by the Corinthians. And it is as plain to us tha Christianity would be a foolish profession, if it proposed advantage to themselves by their faithfulness to God; and to have our fruit to holiness, that our end may be everlasting life. But we must not liv like beasts, as we do not die like them. It must be ignorance of God that leads any to disbelieve the resurrection and future life. Thos who own a God and a providence, and observe how unequal things are in the present life, how frequently the best men fare worst, cannot doub as to an after-state, where every thing will be set to rights. Let u not be joined with ungodly men; but warn all around us, especiall children and young persons, to shun them as a pestilence. Let us awak to righteousness, and not sin.

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    31. I
    protest, etc. I protest is not expressed, but merely implied, in the particle of adjuration, nh by. The order of the Greek is noteworthy. I die daily, by your rejoicing, etc.

    Your rejoicing (thn umeteran kauchsin). Rev., better, that glorying in you which I have. Paul would say: "You Corinthian Christians are the fruit of my apostolic labor which has been at a daily risk to life; and as truly as I can point to you as such fruit, so truly can I say, 'I die daily."' I die daily. I am in constant peril of my life. Compare 2 Cor. iv. 11; xi. 23; Rom. viii. 36. So Clytaemnestra: "I have no rest by night, nor can I snatch from the day a sweet moment of repose to enfold me; but Time, ever standing over me, was as a jailer who conducted me to death" (Sophocles, "Electra," 780, 781). And Philo: "And each day, nay, each hour, I die beforehand, enduring many deaths instead of one, the last."


    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    15:31 {I protest by that glorying in you} (ne ten humeteran kaucesin). No word for "I protest." Paul takes solemn oath by the use of ne (common in Attic) with the accusative. Only here in N.T., but in LXX (#Ge 42:15f.). For other solemn oaths by Paul see #2Co 1:18,23; 11:10f.,31; Ro 9:1. For kaucesis see on 1Th 2:19. The possessive pronoun (humeteran) is objective as emen in #1Co 11:24. {I die daily} (kaq' hemeran apoqneskw). I am in daily peril of death (#2Co 4:11; 11:23; Ro 8:36).
