    SEV Biblia, Chapter 12:5

    así muchos somos un cuerpo en el Cristo, mas todos miembros los unos de los otros.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Romans 12:5

    Verse 5. So we, being many] We who are members of the
    Church of Christ, which is considered the body of which he is the head, have various offices assigned to us, according to the measure of grace, faith and religious knowledge which we possess; and although each has a different office, and qualifications suitable to that office, yet all belong to the same body; and each has as much need of the help of another as that other has of his; therefore, let there be neither pride on the one hand, nor envy on the other.

    The same metaphor, in nearly the same words, is used in Synopsis Sohar, page 13. "As man is divided into various members and joints, united among themselves, and raised by gradations above each other, and collectively compose one body; so all created things are members orderly disposed, and altogether constitute one body. In like manner the law, distributed into various articulations, constitutes but one body." See Schoettgen.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 5. So we being many are one body in Christ , etc..] This is the application of the above simile. The chosen of God, the redeemed of Christ, and those that are justified by his righteousness, and sanctified by his Spirit; though they are but few in comparison of the men of the world, but considered in themselves are many, and yet make up but one body, the church, of which Christ is the head: and though this general assembly; or church universal, may be distinguished into several congregational churches, and distinct communities, yet each community, consisting of divers persons, is but one body in Christ, united and knit together by joints and bands, under him their head, Lord, and King; in him, and not in Caesar, or any earthly monarch, to distinguish this body from bodies politic, or any civil community among men: and everyone members one of another ; as in union with Christ their head, so to one another in love, walking in holy fellowship together, sympathizing with, and serving each other.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 3-8 -
    Pride is a sin in us by nature; we need to be cautioned and arme against it. All the saints make up one body in Christ, who is the Hea of the body, and the common Centre of their unity. In the spiritual body, some are fitted for and called to one sort of work; others for another sort of work. We are to do all the good we can, one to another and for the common benefit. If we duly thought about the powers we have, and how far we fail properly to improve them, it would humble us But as we must not be proud of our talents, so we must take heed lest under a pretence of humility and self-denial, we are slothful in layin out ourselves for the good of others. We must not say, I am nothing therefore I will sit still, and do nothing; but, I am nothing in myself, and therefore I will lay out myself to the utmost, in the strength of the grace of Christ. Whatever our gifts or situations ma be, let us try to employ ourselves humbly, diligently, cheerfully, an in simplicity; not seeking our own credit or profit, but the good of many, for this world and that which is to come.

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    5. Being many (oi polloi). Lit., the many. Rev., better, who are many. Every one (to de kaq eiv). The literal phrase can only be rendered awkwardly: and as to what is true according to one; i.e., individually, severally. Compare, for a similar phrase,
    Mark xiv. 19; John viii. 9.

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    12:5 {And severally} (to de kaq' heis). A difficult late idiom where the preposition kaq' (kata) is treated adverbially with no effect on the nominative
    case heis like huper eg" (#2Co 11:23). So heis kaq' heis (#Mr 14:19) and in Modern Greek katheis as a distributive pronoun. But we have kaq' hena in #1Co 14:31. The use of the neuter article here to with kaq' heis is probably the accusative of general reference, "as to each one."
