    Treasury of Scriptural Knowledge

    VERSE (20) -
    Ps 94:11

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 3:20

    Y otra vez: El Seor conoce los pensamientos de los sabios, que son vanos.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Corinthians 3:20

    Verse 20. The
    Lord knoweth the thoughts of the wise] They are always full of schemes and plans for earthly good; and God knows that all this is vain, empty, and unsatisfactory; and will stand them in no stead when he comes to take away their souls. This is a quotation from Psa. xciv. 11.

    What is here said of the vanity of human knowledge is true of every kind of wisdom that leads not immediately to God himself.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 20. And again , etc.] Not in the same place, nor in the same book, but in the Psalms, in ( Psalm 94:11). This form of citing Scriptures answers to dw[w and moreover, used by the Jewish doctors when the matter does not so clearly appear from the first proof, and therefore they produce another f40 : and so here the apostle, for the further confirmation and illustration of this point, that the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God, to the testimony of Eliphaz, adds this of David, the Lord knoweth the thoughts of the wise, that they are vain ; in the Psalms it is, the Lord knoweth the thoughts of men, that they are vanity; which the apostle not only cites, but explains and teaches; as that by men is meant men of wisdom and knowledge, of the greatest capacities, whose thoughts, reasonings, schemes, and devices, the omniscient God not only knows, but makes known, and discovers them, sooner or later, to be vain and fruitless, yea, vanity itself; and notwithstanding all their machinations and contrivances, his counsel shall stand, his Gospel shall be maintained, his truths shall prevail, and his ordinances shall be continued, and his work go on.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 18-23 - To have a
    high opinion of our own wisdom, is but to flatter ourselves and self-flattery is the next step to self-deceit. The wisdom tha wordly men esteem, is foolishness with God. How justly does he despise and how easily can he baffle and confound it! The thoughts of the wisest men in the world, have vanity, weakness, and folly in them. All this should teach us to be humble, and make us willing to be taught of God, so as not to be led away, by pretences to human wisdom and skill from the simple truths revealed by Christ. Mankind are very apt to oppose the design of the mercies of God. Observe the spiritual riche of a true believer; "All are yours," even ministers and ordinances Nay, the world itself is yours. Saints have as much of it as Infinit Wisdom sees fit for them, and they have it with the Divine blessing Life is yours, that you may have a season and opportunity to prepar for the life of heaven; and death is yours, that you may go to the possession of it. It is the kind messenger to take you from sin an sorrow, and to guide you to your Father's house. Things present ar yours, for your support on the road; things to come are yours, to delight you for ever at your journey's end. If we belong to Christ, an are true to him, all good belongs to us, and is sure to us. Believer are the subjects of his kingdom. He is Lord over us, we must own his dominion, and cheerfully submit to his command. God in Christ reconciling a sinful world to himself, and pouring the riches of his grace on a reconciled world, is the sum and substance of the gospel __________________________________________________________________

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    3:20 {And again} (kai palin). Another confirmatory passage from #Ps 94:11. {Reasonings} (dialogismous). More than _cogitationes_ (Vulgate), sometimes disputations (#Php 2:14).
    Paul changes "menw of LXX to wise (sofwn) in harmony with the Hebrew context. {Vain} (mataioi). Useless, foolish, from mate, a futile attempt.
