    :9; 4:6 Joh 4:36-38

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 3:8

    Y el que planta y el que riega son una misma cosa; aunque cada uno recibir su salario conforme a su labor.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Corinthians 3:8

    Verse 8. He that planteth and he that watereth are one] Both
    Paul and Apollos have received the same doctrine, preach the same doctrine, and labour to promote the glory of God in the salvation of your souls. Why should you be divided with respect to Paul and Apollos, while these apostles are intimately ONE in spirit, design, and operation? According to his own labour.] God does not reward his servants according to the success of their labour, because that depends on himself; but he rewards them according to the quantum of faithful labour which they bestow on his work. In this sense none can say, I have laboured in vain, and spent my strength for nought.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 8. Now he that planteth, and he that watereth are one , etc.] Not in every respect so; they were different as
    men, they were not the same individual persons, nor in the same office; Paul was an apostle, Apollos only a preacher of the Gospel; nor had they the same measure of gifts, nor did they labour alike, or were of the same usefulness; but they had one and the same commission to preach the Gospel; and the Gospel they preached was the same; and so were their views, aims, and ends, which were the glory of God, and the good of immortal souls; and they had the same love and affection for one another; they were one in their work, judgment, and affection; and which carries in it a strong reason and argument why the members of this church should not contend and divide about them: and every man shall receive his own reward ; either from men, that double honour he is worthy of, maintenance and respect; or rather from God, not a reward of debt, for his labours are by no means meritorious of anything at the hands of God, from whom he has all the grace, strength, and abilities he labours with; but of grace, even the reward of the inheritance, because he serves the Lord Christ; which is by bequest, through the death of the testator, and common to all the children of God, and heirs of glory: according to his own labour ; and not anothers; and not according to the success of it, but according to that itself; not that that is the measure of the reward, for the reward infinitely exceeds it; but is that to which God has graciously annexed the promise of the reward, as an encouragement to it.

    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.

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    3:8 {Are one} (hen eisin). The neuter singular again (hen, not heis) as with the interrogative ti and the indefinite ti. By this
    bold metaphor which Paul expands he shows how the planter and the waterer work together. If no one planted, the watering would be useless. If no one watered, the planting would come to naught as the dreadful drouth of 1930 testifies while these words are written. {According to his own labor} (kata ton idion kopon). God will bestow to each the reward that his labor deserves. That is the pay that the preacher is sure to receive. He may get too little or too much here from men. But the due reward from God is certain and it will be adequate however ungrateful men may be.
