    SEV Biblia, Chapter 16:18

    Porque recrearon mi espíritu y el vuestro; reconoced pues a los tales.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Corinthians 16:18

    Verse 18. They have refreshed my spirit and yours] They have been a means of contributing greatly to my
    comfort; and what contributes to my comfort must increase yours. This is probably the meaning of the apostle.

    Therefore acknowledge ye them] Pay them particular respect, and let all be held in esteem in proportion to their work and usefulness. When this is made the rule of respect and esteem, then foolish and capricious attachments will have no place. A man will then be honoured in proportion to his merit; and his merit will be estimated by his usefulness among men.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 18. For they have refreshed my spirit , etc.] By their coming and presence; the very sight of them gave him joy and pleasure, and more so their Christian discourse and conversation, and especially the account they brought of this church; for though there were many things in it which were very disagreeable, and were the occasion of this epistle, yet there were others related, which were exceedingly pleasing to the apostle, and revived his spirit, which had been greatly depressed by what he might have heard of them from another quarter, and through fear that it was worse with them than it really was; for by these brethren he understood, that there were many in the church that had great grace, and large gifts bestowed on them, so that they came behind none in these things; and were steadfast in the faith of the Gospel, and with rigour opposed the false teachers; and in all things sought the welfare of the church, and the interest of Christ; and this was good news to the apostle, and which exhilarated his spirit: and he adds, and yours ; his spirit and theirs, in divine things, being the same; they were of one heart and soul; they had the same love, and were of one accord, and of one mind; so that what was grateful to the one, was so to the other: or his sense is, that when these brethren should return, and acquaint the church how the spirit of the apostle was revived, and refreshed with the narrative they gave him of the affairs of the church, their spirits would be also refreshed too. Dr. Hammond thinks that this phrase is taken out of the Greek translation of ( Zechariah 6:8), have quieted my spirit, which the Septuagint interpret by anepausan ton yumon mou , they stilled, or caused my wrath to cease; and in the same way Jarchi, Aben Ezra, and Kimchi explain the words; but the apostles phrase is nearer to the original itself of that text, yjwr ta wjynh , they have stilled, or caused my spirit to rest; and is the very same phrase the Syriac version uses here; and which the Chaldee paraphrase renders thus, ytw[r ty wdyb[ , they have done my will; that which was agreeable and well pleasing to God; and so these brethren by their coming and company, and news they brought, did that which was grateful and satisfactory to the apostle: and the phrase of the spirit of man having rest from another, is often used in the Rabbinical writings, for having satisfaction in them, and approving of them; so they say, f367 , wnmyh hjwn twyrbh jwr , that everyone from whom the spirit of men have rest, the Spirit of God has rest; and everyone from whom the spirit of man has no rest, the Spirit of God has no rest: and which their commentators explain thus, whoever is beloved below, it is manifest that he is beloved above: therefore acknowledge ye them that are such ; as these men; know them, have an affection for them, show respect to them, highly esteem of them for their works sake; (see 1 Thessalonians 5:12,13).

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 13-18 - A
    Christian is always in danger, therefore should ever be on the watch He should be fixed in the faith of the gospel, and never desert or giv it up. By this faith alone he will be able to keep his ground in a hour of temptation. Christians should be careful that charity not onl reigns in their hearts, but shines in their lives. There is a grea difference between Christian firmness and feverish warmth an transport. The apostle gave particular directions as to some who serve the cause of Christ among them. Those who serve the saints, those wh desire the honour of the churches, and to remove reproaches from them are to be thought much of, and loved. They should willingly acknowledg the worth of such, and all who laboured with or helped the apostle.

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    16:18 {For they refreshed my spirit and yours} (anepausan gar to emon pneuma kai to humwn). They did both. The very verb used by
    Jesus in #Mt 11:28 for the refreshment offered by him to those who come to him, fellowship with Jesus, and here fellowship with each other.
