Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for 1 Corinthians 10:13


10:13 Common to man - Or, as the Greek word imports, proportioned to human strength. God is faithful - In giving the help which he hath promised. And he will with the temptation - Provide for your deliverance.


People's Bible Notes for 1 Corinthians 10:13


1Co 10:13 There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man. Perhaps the Corinthians thought their temptations were usually severe, but these were only what human nature is exposed to. But God [is] faithful. Will keep every promise, and hence will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able. Will give them strength and deliverance in every temptation if they trust in him. None who devoutly follow Christ, who pray constantly for strength, and trust God, will fall.

    I always say! You can Not run with the devil and walk with the Lord at the same time.

    Live by Gods law! NOT man made laws! Man has twisted Gods laws so bad! God gave us free will but he also gave us a conscience. Like abortion and same sex marriage, for instance. We know they are wrong but man made laws says it's OK! Everyday that we breathe we have the chance to repent from our sins and get right with God. None of us know when our last breath will be. Any day could be your last chance to get right with God.

    Brianna,Proverbs 26:7"Faithful are the wounds of a friend: but the kisses of an enemy are deceitful." If a friend wounds, using God's word, it is from love. Because you wrote,"does it look for the feelings of others." If they are not in the Truth, nothing is pure.
    1 Cor.10:23"All things are lawful for me, but all things are not expedient.All things are lawful for me,but all things edify not."
  • Brianna for VS. 23, 24
    There is probably a law out there somewhere to permit a almost anything. However, is it advantageous? So, maybe we technically have the "right" to do something, but the Bible helps us to see in vs. 24 what we should keep in mind. Is it advantageous, does it build up, does it look for the feelings of others?
  • Brianna for verse 11
    Some people question why certain things were put into the Bible. This verse gives one of the answers. Basically, accounts and people in the Bible were examples, some were warnings specifically for us, as we draw ever closer to the time of the end.
