    SEV Biblia, Chapter 3:17

    Si alguno violare el templo de Dios, Dios destruir al tal, porque el templo de Dios, el cual sois vosotros, santo es.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Corinthians 3:17

    Verse 17. If any man
    defile the temple] This clause is not consistently translated. ei tiv ton naon tou qeou fqeirei, fqerei touton o qeov? If any man destroy the temple of God, him will God destroy. The verb is the same in both clauses. If any man injure, corrupt, or destroy the Church of God by false doctrine, God will destroy him-will take away his part out of the book of life. This refers to him who wilfully opposes the truth; the erring, mistaken man shall barely escape; but the obstinate opposer shall be destroyed. The former shall be treated leniently; the latter shall have judgment without mercy.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 17. If any man
    defile the temple of God , etc.] By the wisdom of the world, through philosophy, and vain deceit; by bringing in false doctrines, errors, and heresies, and hereby corrupt their minds from the simplicity that is in Christ; and make rents, factions, and divisions among them: him shall God destroy ; body and soul in hell; for as their wicked principles and heretical notions are pernicious to others, they are damnable to themselves, and will bring upon them that judgment which lingereth not, and that damnation which slumbereth not. The false prophet, as well as the beast, and the devil, shall be cast into the lake of fire and brimstone. God is not only an avenger of all immoralities committed against his righteous law, but of all false doctrine and false worship, and of everything that is contrary to the Gospel, and to the order and ordinances of it. The reason of this is, for the temple of God is holy ; alluding to the holiness of Solomons temple, into which a man might not go with his staff, nor with his shoes on, nor with his purse, nor with dust upon his feet, nor might he make it a thoroughfare, and much less spit in it f38 .

    And yet, how was it polluted in our Lords time by the Jews, who made it a den of thieves, instead of an house of prayer? which temple ye are . This is added for further confirmation, and to assert their holiness in doctrine, worship, and conversation, and to deter the false teachers from making use of any means to corrupt them in either.


    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

    17.
    Defile (fqeirei). Rev., more correctly, destroy. This is the primary and almost universal meaning in classical Greek. In a fragment of Euripides it occurs of dishonoring a female. Sophocles uses it of women pining away in barrenness, and Plutarch of mixing pure colors. The phrase seems to be used here according to the Jewish idea that the temple was destroyed or corrupted by the slightest defilement or damage, or by neglect on the part of its guardians. Ignatius says: "oiJ oijkofqoroi; violators of the house (of God) shall not inherit the kingdom of God" (To the Ephesians, 16.).

    Which temple (oitinev). Temple is not in the Greek. The double relative which refers to the epithet holy; "of which holy character or class ye are."


    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    3:17 {Destroyeth} (fqeirei). The outward temple is merely the symbol of God's presence, the Shechinah (the Glory). God makes his home in the hearts of his people or the church in any given place like Corinth. It is a terrible thing to tear down ruthlessly a church or temple of God like an earthquake that shatters a building in ruins. this old verb fqeirw means to corrupt, to deprave, to destroy. It is a gross sin to be a church-wrecker. There are actually a few preachers who leave behind them ruin like a tornado in their path. {Him shall God destroy} (fqerei touton ho qeos). There is a solemn repetition of the same verb in the future active indicative. The condition is the first class and is assumed to be true. qen the punishment is certain and equally effective. The church-wrecker God will wreck. What does Paul mean by "will destroy"? Does he mean punishment here or hereafter? May it not be both? Certainly he does not mean annihilation of the man's soul, though it may well include eternal punishment. There is warning enough here to make every pastor pause before he tears a church to pieces in order to vindicate himself. {Holy} (hagios). Hence deserves reverential treatment. It is not the building or house of which Paul speaks as "the sanctuary of God" (ton naon tou qeou), but the spiritual organization or organism of God's people in whom God dwells, "which temple ye are" (hoitines este humeis). The qualitative relative pronoun hoitines is plural to agree with humeis (ye) and refers to the holy temple just mentioned. The Corinthians themselves in their angry disputes had forgotten their holy heritage and calling, though this failing was no excuse for the ringleaders who had led them on. In #6:19 Paul reminds the Corinthians again that the body is the temple (naos, sanctuary) of the Holy Spirit, which fact they had forgotten in their immoralities.
