    SEV Biblia, Chapter 3:7

    Así que, ni el que planta es algo, ni el que riega; sino Dios, que da el crecimiento.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Corinthians 3:7

    Verse 7. So then, neither is he that planteth any thing]
    God alone should have all the glory, as the seed is his, the ground is his, the labourers are his, and the produce all comes from himself.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 7. So then, neither is he that planteth anything , etc.] Not that he is the
    happy instrument of beginning the good work: neither he that watereth ; who is the means of carrying of it on: not that they are simply and absolutely nothing, without any restriction and limitation; they are men, they are Christians, they are ministers, and useful ones, by whom others believe; they are labourers together with God, ministers of Christ, and stewards of the mysteries of God, and so to be accounted of; but they are nothing in themselves, nor in their own account, or with respect to God: they are nothing of themselves as ministers; they have nothing but what they have received; all their gifts are from God, nor can they exercise them aright without the grace of God, not being able to think a good thought as of themselves; nor are they anything in making their planting and watering effectual; and so no glory belongs to them; nothing is to be ascribed to them, they have no part or lot in these things: but God that giveth the increase ; he gives them their abilities, assists them in the exercise of their gifts, makes their ministrations useful, and he has, as he ought to have, all the glory.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 5-9 - The
    ministers about whom the Corinthians contended, were onl instruments used by God. We should not put ministers into the place of God. He that planteth and he that watereth are one, employed by on Master, trusted with the same revelation, busied in one work, an engaged in one design. They have their different gifts from one and the same Spirit, for the very same purposes; and should carry on the sam design heartily. Those who work hardest shall fare best. Those who ar most faithful shall have the greatest reward. They work together with God, in promoting the purposes of his glory, and the salvation of precious souls; and He who knows their work, will take care they do no labour in vain. They are employed in his husbandry and building; and He will carefully look over them.

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    7. Anything. The
    devoted Angelique Arnauld, of Port Royal, when her sister condoled with her on the absence of her confessor, Singlier, replied: "I have never put a man in God's place. He can have only what God gives him; and God gives him something for us only when it is His will that we should receive it through him."

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    3:7 {So qen neither--neither--but} (hwste oute--oute--all').
    Paul applies his logic relentlessly to the facts. He had asked {what} (ti) is Apollos or Paul (verse #5). The answer is here. {Neither is anything} (ti) {the one who plants nor the one who waters}. God is the whole and we are not anything.
