    SEV Biblia, Chapter 4:4

    Porque aunque de nada tengo mala conciencia, no por eso soy justificado; mas el que me juzga, es el Seor.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Corinthians 4:4

    Verse 4. For I know nothing by myself] ouden gar emautw sunoida? I am not conscious that I am
    guilty of any evil, or have neglected to fulfill faithfully the duty of a steward of Jesus Christ. The import of the verb suneidein is to be conscious of guilt; and conscire has the same meaning: so, in Horace, Nil CONSCIRE sibi, to know nothing to one's self, is the same as nulla pellescere culpa, not to grow pale at being charged with a crime, through a consciousness of guilt.

    Yet am I not hereby justified] I do not pretend to say that though I am not conscious of any offense towards God I must therefore be pronounced innocent; no: I leave those things to God; he shall pronounce in my favour, not I myself. By these words the apostle, in a very gentle yet effectual manner, censures those rash and precipitate judgments which the Corinthians were in the habit of pronouncing on both men and things-a conduct than which nothing is more reprehensible and dangerous.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 4. For I know nothing by myself , etc.] Which must be understood with a restriction to the subject he is upon, faithfulness in the ministry; otherwise he knew much by himself of indwelling sin, and the corruption of his nature, which he sometimes found very strong and prevalent in him, and of the daily infirmities of life; but as to his ministerial service, he was pure from the blood of all men; he honestly declared what he knew to be the mind of God, and concealed nothing that might be useful to men; in this he had a clear conscience, void of offence both towards God and men, Yet am I not hereby justified ; from all fault and blame, which might possibly escape his knowledge and observation; for in many things all offend, and no man can understand all his errors; and there might be some mistakes which the apostle was not privy to, or conscious of; and were he even free from all, he declares, that such an unstained integrity, in the discharge of his ministerial work, was not the matter of his justification before God, nor did he depend upon it: but he that judgeth me is the Lord ; either who adjudges me to eternal life, justifying me through the righteousness of his Son, in which alone I desire to be found, living and dying; or he that knows my heart, and all my ways, will be my judge at the last day; and to his judgment I appeal and submit, and sit easy in the mean while under all the censures and calumnies of men.

    The apostle did, as his Lord and Saviour had done before him, who, when he was reviled and reproached by men, conscious of his own innocence and integrity, committed himself to him that judgeth righteously.


    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1-6 - Apostles were no more than servants of Christ, but they were not to be undervalued. They had a great trust, and for that reason, had a honourable office. Paul had a just concern for his own reputation, but he knew that he who chiefly aimed to please men, would not prove himself a faithful servant of Christ. It is a comfort that men are no to be our final judges. And it is not judging well of ourselves, or justifying ourselves, that will prove us safe and happy. Our ow judgment is not to be depended upon as to our faithfulness, any mor than our own works for our justification. There is a day coming, tha will bring men's secret sins into open day, and discover the secrets of their hearts. Then every slandered believer will be justified, an every faithful servant approved and rewarded. The word of God is the best rule by which to judge as to men. Pride commonly is at the botto of quarrels. Self-conceit contributes to produce undue esteem of ou teachers, as well as of ourselves. We shall not be puffed up for on against another, if we remember that all are instruments, employed by God, and endowed by him with various talents.

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    4:4 {For I know nothing against myself} (ouden gar emautwi sunoida). Not a statement of fact, but an hypothesis to show the unreliability of mere complacent self-satisfaction. Note the use of sunoida (second
    perfect active indicative with dative (disadvantage) of the reflexive pronoun) for guilty knowledge against oneself (cf. #Ac 5:2; 12:12; 14:6). {Yet} (all'). Adversative use of alla. {Am I not hereby justified} (ouk en toutwi dedikaiwmai). Perfect passive indicative of state of completion. Failure to be conscious of one's own sins does not mean that one is innocent. Most prisoners plead "not guilty." Who is the judge of the steward of the mysteries of God? It is the Lord "that judgeth me" (ho anakrinwn me). Probably, who examines me and qen passes on my fidelity (pistos in verse #2).
