    VERSE (7) -
    1Co 12:11 Mt 19:11,12

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 7:7

    Quisiera ms bien que todos los hombres fuesen como yo; pero cada uno tiene su propio don de Dios; uno a la verdad así, y otro así.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Corinthians 7:7

    Verse 7. For I would that all
    men, &c.] He wished that all that were then in the Church were, like him self, unmarried; but this was in reference to the necessities of the Church, or what he calls, ver. 26, the present distress: for it never could be his wish that marriage should cease among men, and that human beings should no longer be propagated upon earth; nor could he wish that the Church of Christ should always be composed of single persons; this would have been equally absurd; but as the Church was then in straits and difficulties, it was much better for its single members not to encumber themselves with domestic embarrassments.

    Every man hath his proper gift of God] Continence is a state that cannot be acquired by human art or industry; a man has it from God, or not at all: and if he have it from God, he has it from him as the author of his nature; for where it does not exist naturally, it never can exist, but either by miraculous interference, which should never be expected, or by chirurgical operation, which is a shocking abomination in the sight of God. See the note on Matt. xix. 12.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 7. For I would that all men were even as I myself , etc.] The apostle speaks not of his state and condition, as married or unmarried, for it is not certain which he was; some think he had a wife, others not: it looks, however, as if he had not at this time, as appears from ( 1 Corinthians 7:8) but be it which it will, it can hardly be thought he should wish all men to be in either state, either all married, or all unmarried; but he speaks of the gift of continency, which he had, as the following words show; and this he desires for all men, that they might not be in any danger from Satans temptations, and that they might be more fit for and intent upon the service of Christ. The Syriac version adds, atwykdb in purity, or chastity; which may be preserved in a marriage state, as well as in single life: but every man hath his proper gift of God, one after this manner, and another after that : all the gifts of nature and grace which men have, they have of God, and not of themselves; and every man has a gift proper to himself; no one man has all gifts, but some one, and some another; and with respect to the case in hand, one man has the gift of continency, another the gift of marriage; all cannot contain themselves, only to whom it is given: and all are not disposed to marriage; some are inclined to a single life, and some to a marriage state; and of those that are married, some can abstain from the use of the marriage bed longer than others, without being in danger of being tempted by Satan for their incontinency; and such a disposition is desirable.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1-9 - The
    apostle tells the Corinthians that it was good, in that juncture of time, for Christians to keep themselves single. Yet he says tha marriage, and the comforts of that state, are settled by Divine wisdom Though none may break the law of God, yet that perfect rule leaves me at liberty to serve him in the way most suited to their powers an circumstances, of which others often are very unfit judges. All mus determine for themselves, seeking counsel from God how they ought to act.

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    7. As I myself. Not
    unmarried, but continent. It is not necessary to assume that Paul had never been married. Marriage was regarded as a duty among the Jews, so that a man was considered to have sinned if he had reached the age of twenty without marrying. The Mishna fixed the age of marriage at seventeen or eighteen, and the Babylonish Jews as early as fourteen. A rabbinical precept declared that a Jew who has no wife is not a man. It is not certain, but most probable, that Saul was a member of the Sanhedrim (Acts xxvi. 10). If so, he must have been married, as marriage was a condition of membership. From ver. 8 it is plausibly inferred that he classed himself among widowers. Farrar ("Life and Work of St. Paul," i., 80) has some beautiful remarks upon the evidence for his marriage afforded by the wisdom and tenderness of his words concerning it. 94 Gift (carisma). See on Rom. i. 11. As regards the matter of continence, fitting some for marriage and some for celibacy.

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    7:7 {Yet I would} (qelw de). "But I wish." Followed by accusative and infinitive (anqrwpous einai). this is
    Paul's personal preference under present conditions (#7:26). {Even as I myself} (hws kai emauton). this clearly means that Paul was not qen married and it is confirmed by #9:5. Whether he had been married and was now a widower turns on the interpretation of #Ac 26:10 "I cast my vote." If this is taken literally (the obvious way to take it) as a member of the Sanhedrin, Paul was married at that time. There is no way to decide. {His own gift from God} (idion carisma ek qeou). So each must decide for himself. See on 1:7 for carisma, a late word from carizomai.
