    VERSE (21) -
    :4-7; 1:12 *etc:

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 3:21

    ¶ Así que, ninguno se gloríe en los hombres; porque todo es vuestro,

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Corinthians 3:21

    Verse 21. Let no man
    glory in men] Let none suppose that he has any cause of exultation in any thing but God. All are yours; he that has God for his portion has every thing that can make him happy and glorious: all are his.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 21. Therefore let no man
    glory in men , etc.] The apostle means ministers, who are but men, even the best of them, and therefore not to be gloried in; and has chiefly respect to the false teachers, whose wisdom, learning, and eloquence, the Corinthians were greatly taken with, and boasted of; it was so ensnaring to them, that they even idolized them for it, called them their masters, pinned their faith on their sleeve, gave up themselves to them, and were greatly under their authority, influence, and direction, which is here condemned; and which was so far from being right, that they ought not to behave in such manner to the best of ministers, nor to glory in anyone above another; no, not in Paul, nor Apollos, nor Cephas; for all things are yours ; all the ministers, and all they are endowed with; these were all for their use and service, for their benefit and advantage; wherefore it was very wrong to set up one above, or against another, or for any party to engross anyone minister, when he belonged to them all; and great weakness to reject others, when they had a common right and property in them.

    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 __________________________________________________________________

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    21. All things are yours. The categories which
    follow form an inventory of the possessions of the Church and of the individual Christian. This includes: the christian teachers with different gifts; the world, life, and things present; death and things to come. In Christ, death becomes a possession, as the right of way between things present and things to come.

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    3:21 {Wherefore let no one
    glory in men} (hwste medeis kaucasqw en anqrwpois). The conclusion (hwste) from the self-conceit condemned. this particle here is merely inferential with no effect on the construction (hws+te = and so) any more than oun would have, a paratactic conjunction. There are thirty such examples of hwste in the N.T., eleven with the imperative as here (Robertson, _Grammar_, p. 999). The spirit of glorying in party is a species of self-conceit and inconsistent with glorying in the Lord (#1:31).
