    SEV Biblia, Chapter 3:16

    ¶ ¿O no sabis que sois templo de Dios, y que el Espíritu de Dios mora en vosotros?

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Corinthians 3:16

    Verse 16. Ye are the
    temple of God] The apostle resumes here what he had asserted in ver. i10: Ye are God's building. As the whole congregation of Israel were formerly considered as the temple and habitation of God, because God dwelt among them, so here the whole Church of Corinth is called the temple of God, because all genuine believers have the Spirit of God to dwell in them; and Christ has promised to be always in the midst even of two or three who are gathered together in his name. Therefore where God is, there is his temple.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 16. Know ye not that ye are the
    temple of God , etc.] The apostle having spoken of the saints as Gods building, of himself as a wise master builder, of Christ as the only foundation, and of various doctrines as the materials laid thereon, proceeds to observe to this church, and the members of it, that they being incorporated together in a Gospel church state, were the temple of God; and which was what they could not, or at least ought not, to be ignorant of: and they are so called, in allusion to Solomons temple; which as it was a type of the natural, so of the mystical body of Christ. There is an agreement between that and the church of Christ, in its maker, matter, situation, magnificence, and holiness; and the church is said to be the temple of God, because it is of his building, and in which he dwells: what the apostle here says of the saints at Corinth, the Jewish doctors say of the Israelites f37 , ta hwhy lkyh , the temple of the Lord are ye; and which being usually said of them in the apostles time, he may refer unto; and much better apply to the persons he does, of which the indwelling of the Spirit was the evidence: and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you : in particular members, as a spirit of regeneration, sanctification, faith, and adoption, and as the earnest and pledge of their future glory; in their ministers to fit and qualify them for their work, and carry them through it; and in the whole church, to bless the word and ordinances, for their growth, comfort, and establishment. This furnishes out a considerable proof of the deity and distinct personality of the Spirit, since this is mentioned as an evidence of the saints being the temple of God, which would not be one, if the Spirit was not God, who dwells therein; and since a temple is sacred to deity, and therefore if he dwells here as in a temple, he must dwell here as God; and since he is mentioned as distinct from God, whose Spirit he is, and dwelling, a personal action is ascribed to him, he must be a distinct divine person.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 16, 17 - From other
    parts of the epistle, it appears that the false teacher among the Corinthians taught unholy doctrines. Such teaching tended to corrupt, to pollute, and destroy the building, which should be kep pure and holy for God. Those who spread loose principles, which rende the church of God unholy, bring destruction upon themselves. Christ by his Spirit dwells in all true believers. Christians are holy by profession, and should be pure and clean, both in heart an conversation. He is deceived who deems himself the temple of the Holy Ghost, yet is unconcerned about personal holiness, or the peace an purity of the church.

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    16.
    Temple (naov). Or sanctuary. See on Matt. iv. 5. Compare Eph. ii. 21; 2 Cor. vi. 16.

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    3:16 {Ye are a
    temple of God} (naos qeou este). Literally, a sanctuary (naos, not hieron, the sacred enclosure, but the holy place and the most holy place) of God. The same picture of building as in verse #9 (oikodome), only here the sanctuary itself. {Dwelleth in you} (en humin oikei). The Spirit of God makes his home (oikei) in us, not in temples made with hands (#Ac 7:48; 17:24).
