    SEV Biblia, Chapter 16:1

    ¶ En cuanto a la colecta para los santos, haced vosotros tambin de la manera que orden en las Iglesias de Galacia.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Corinthians 16:1

    Verse 1. The collection for the
    saints] peri-thv logiav, from legw, to gather, or collect; translated by the Vulgate, de collectis, a contribution made by the rich for the relief of the poor. The Christians living at Jerusalem, we may naturally suppose, were greatly straitened; as the enmity of their countrymen to the Gospel of Christ led them to treat those who professed it with cruelty, and spoil them of their goods; (see Heb. x. 34; and Romans xv. 26; and see the note Rom. xv. 27;) and the apostle hereby teaches that it was the duty of one Christian congregation to help another when in distress.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 1. Now concerning the collection for the
    saints , etc.] Not at Corinth, but at Jerusalem, as appears from ( 1 Corinthians 16:3) for the poor saints there, who were reduced to poverty, either through the spoiling of their goods by their persecuting countrymen; or through the selling of their possessions, and putting their substance into one common stock, which was now exhausted, partly by their living upon it, and partly by the expending of it for the enlargement of the interest of Christ, and the spread of his Gospel among the Gentiles; so that it was but fit and reasonable that they should assist them in their necessitous circumstances: wherefore the apostle, after he had gone through the various subjects he thought fit to write upon, relating both to doctrine and practice, proceeds to give some orders, directions, and instructions, concerning this matter. As I have given orders to the churches of Galatia, so also do ye . The churches of Galatia were those he wrote an epistle to, which bears their name, and in which he takes notice of the request of the apostles at Jerusalem to him, that he would remember the poor as he travelled through the Gentile countries, and which, no doubt, he mentions, as a hint unto them to collect for them. ( Galatians 2:10) though the order he here speaks of was doubtless given them when he passed through the region of Galatia, ( Acts 16:6 18:23). This he observes by way of example to the church at Corinth, and to show them, that what he ordered them was no other than what he enjoined other churches, and which they were ready to come into, as these in Galatia, and also in Macedonia; and designs this as a spur unto them, that if the Galatians, who were a more rude and uncultivated people, being now called by grace, were ready to such a good work, they who were a more polite people, and used to civility, humanity, and tenderness, would not be backward to it.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1-9 - The good examples of other
    Christians and churches should rouse us. It is good to lay up in store for good uses. Those who are rich in thi world, should be rich in good works, 1Ti 6:17, 18. The diligent han will not make rich, without the Divine blessing, Pr 10:4, 22. And what more proper to stir us up to charity to the people and children of God than to look at all we have as his gift? Works of mercy are real fruit of true love to God, and are therefore proper services on his own day Ministers are doing their proper business, when putting forward, or helping works of charity. The heart of a Christian minister must be towards the people among whom he has laboured long, and with success All our purposes must be made with submission to the Divine providence Jas 4:15. Adversaries and opposition do not break the spirits of faithful and successful ministers, but warm their zeal, and inspir them with fresh courage. A faithful minister is more discouraged by the hardness of his hearers' hearts, and the backslidings of professors than by the enemies' attempts.

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    1. Collection (logiav).
    Peculiar to the New Testament, and occurring only here and ver. 2. The classical word is sullogh, Vulg., collecta, which latter is also used of the assemblies in which the collections took place. From legw to collect. For such material ministries Paul uses a variety of words; as cariv bounty, ver. 3; koinwnia contribution, Rom. xv. 26; eujlogia. blessing, 2 Cor. ix. 5; leitoupgia ministration, 2 Corinthians ix. 12; ejlehmosunai alms, Acts xxiv. 17. The word eranov was used by the Greeks to denote a feast of contribution or picnic; a club for mutual relief, and a contribution, made as a club-subscription, or for the support of the poor.

    The saints. At Jerusalem. Evidently the community of property (Acts ii. 44) had been abandoned; and Augustine supposes that the poverty of the Jerusalem Christians was due to that practice. See note on Romans xv. 26. The precise causes of the destitution in that church can be only conjectured.


    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    16:1 {Now concerning the collection for the saints} (peri de tes logias tes eis tous hagious). Paul has discussed all the problems raised by the Corinthians. Now he has on his own heart the collection for the saints in Jerusalem (see chapters #2Co 8; 9). this word logia (or -eia) is now known to be derived from a late verb logeuw, to collect, recently found in papyri and inscriptions (Deissmann, _Bible Studies_, p. 143). The word logia is chiefly found in papyri, ostraca, and inscriptions that tell of religious collections for a god or a temple (Deissmann, _Light from the Ancient East_, p. 105). The introduction of this topic may seem sudden, but the Corinthians were behind with their part of it. They may even have asked further about it. Paul feels no conflict between discussion of the resurrection and the collection. {So also do ye} (houtws kai humas poiesate). Paul had given orders (dietaxa) to the churches of Galatia and now gives them like commands. As a matter of fact, they had promised a long time before this (#2Co 8:10; 9:1-5). Now do what you pledged.
