    SEV Biblia, Chapter 4:14

    ¶ No escribo esto para avergonzaros; sino para amonestaros como a mis hijos amados.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Corinthians 4:14

    Verse 14. I
    write not these things to shame you] It is not by way of finding fault with you for not providing me with the necessaries of life that I write thus; but I do it to warn you to act differently for the time to come; and be not so ready to be drawn aside by every pretender to apostleship, to the neglect of those to whom, under God, you owe your salvation.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 14. I
    write not these things to shame you , etc.] Though they had a great deal of reason to be ashamed of the vain opinion they had of themselves, and that they suffered the faithful ministers of Christ to want the necessaries of life, when they abounded so much with the good things of it; and though the apostles view in giving this narrative was to bring them under a sense of their faults, and to a conviction of them, and so to shame for them, in order to their future reformation and amendment; yet it was not merely to put them to the blush, but to admonish and instruct them, that he enlarged on these things: but as my beloved sons I warn you ; they being his children in a spiritual sense, for whom he had the strongest love and affection, as their spiritual Father; and as it was his place, and became him standing in such a relation to them, he warned, admonished, and put them in mind of their obligations and duty to him.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 14-21 - In reproving for
    sin, we should distinguish between sinners and their sins. Reproofs that kindly and affectionately warn, are likely to reform. Though the apostle spoke with authority as a parent, he woul rather beseech them in love. And as ministers are to set an example others must follow them, as far as they follow Christ in faith an practice. Christians may mistake and differ in their views, but Chris and Christian truth are the same yesterday, to-day, and for ever Whenever the gospel is effectual, it comes not in word only, but als in power, by the Holy Spirit, quickening dead sinners, deliverin persons from the slavery of sin and Satan, renewing them both inwardl and outwardly, and comforting, strengthening, and establishing the saints, which cannot be done by the persuasive language of men, but by the power of God. And it is a happy temper, to have the spirit of love and meekness bear the rule, yet to maintain just authority __________________________________________________________________

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    14. To
    shame (entrepwn). Lit., as shaming. See on Matt. xxi. 37. The verb means to turn about, hence to turn one upon himself; put him to shame. Compare 2 Thess. iii. 14; Tit. ii. 8. Also, in the middle voice, in the sense of reverence; to turn one's self toward another. See Mark xii. 6; Luke xviii. 2. The kindred noun ejntroph occurs twice: 1 Corinthians vi. 5; xv. 34. Compare Sophocles: "Think you he will have any regard (entrophn) for the blind man" ("Oedipus at Colonos," 299).

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    4:14 {To
    shame you} (entrepwn). Literally, shaming you (present active participle of entrepw), old verb to turn one on himself either middle or with reflexive pronoun and active, but the reflexive heautois is not expressed here. See on 2Th 3:14. The harsh tone has suddenly changed.
