    SEV Biblia, Chapter 9:2

    Si a los otros no soy apstol, a vosotros ciertamente lo soy; porque el sello de mi apostolado sois vosotros en el Seor.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Corinthians 9:2

    Verse 2. If I be not an
    apostle unto others] If there be other Churches which have been founded by other apostles; yet it is not so with you.

    The seal of mine apostleship are ye] Your conversion to Christianity is God's seal to my apostleship. Had not God sent me, I could not have profited your souls.

    The sfragiv or seal, was a figure cut in a stone, and that set in a ring, by which letters of credence and authority were stamped. The ancients, particularly the Greeks, excelled in this kind of engraving. The cabinets of the curious give ample proof of this; and the moderns contend in vain to rival the perfection of those ancient masters.

    In the Lord.] The apostle shows that it was by the grace and influence of God alone that he was an apostle, and that they were converted to Christianity.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 2. If I be not an apostle unto others , etc.] This is said by way of supposition, not concession; for he was an apostle to many others; he was an apostle of the Gentiles in general; as the apostleship of the circumcision belonged to Peter, that of the uncircumcision fell to his share: but however, as if he should say, be that as it will, yet doubtless I am to you ; all the signs of apostleship were wrought among them; not only the grace of God was implanted in them under his ministry, but the extraordinary gifts of the Spirit were received by them through it; and many signs, wonders, and mighty deeds, were done in the midst of them by him: (see 2 Corinthians 12:12) which were sufficient to put the matter quite out of doubt with them: for the seal of mine apostleship, are ye in the Lord ; alluding to the sealing of deeds and writings, which render them authentic; or to the sealing of letters, confirming the truth of what is therein expressed; and the sense is, that their being converted persons, and so openly in the Lord, in union with him; or being made new creatures by the power of his grace, through his preaching, was an authentic proof of his apostleship, and served him instead of a letter testimonial and recommendatory; (see 2 Corinthians 3:1-3). Some copies read, the seal of my epistle, and so the Ethiopic version.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1-14 - It is not new for a
    minister to meet with unkind returns for good-wil to a people, and diligent and successful services among them. To the cavils of some, the apostle answers, so as to set forth himself as a example of self-denial, for the good of others. He had a right to marr as well as other apostles, and to claim what was needful for his wife and his children if he had any, from the churches, without labourin with his own hands to get it. Those who seek to do our souls good should have food provided for them. But he renounced his right, rathe than hinder his success by claiming it. It is the people's duty to maintain their minister. He may wave his right, as Paul did; but thos transgress a precept of Christ, who deny or withhold due support.

    2. Seal (sfragiv). See on
    Rom. iv. 11; John iii. 33; Apoc. xxii. 10.

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    9:2 {Yet at least I am to you} (alla ge humin eimi). An _argumentum ad hominem_ and a pointed appeal for their support. Note use of alla ge in the apodosis (cf. #8:6).
