Wesley's Notes for 1 Corinthians 13:6


13:6 Rejoiceth not in iniquity - Yea, weeps at either the sin or folly of even an enemy; takes no pleasure in hearing or in repeating it, but desires it may be forgotten for ever. But rejoiceth in the truth - Bringing forth its proper fruit, holiness of heart and life. Good in general is its glory and joy, wherever diffused in all the world.


People's Bible Notes for 1 Corinthians 13:6


1Co 13:6 Rejoiceth not in iniquity. Instead of rejoicing, is filled with sadness by wrong doing of any kind, but does rejoiceth in the truth, or, as in the Revised Version, "with the truth" in its triumphs.

    With ALL of the good that you do - it is as filthy rags if you do not have love. All the good that you do and have done is in vain because it was done while looking for praise and reward from man. It wasn't from the heart. The heart seeks no reward. God sees and knows our heart. Much blessings

    Unless one is born-again, he/she can not bring this to manifestation.
  • Lakeshia
    Love is the most important thing to the Lord . God is love . Gods love covers a multitude of sins . You can live a life as a child of God but if you have an arch against your brother and you don't make it right. It is not pleasing to God and you will not be blessed for it. Until you make it right.
  • Chocolate Williams
    It describes the fruits of the Holy Spirit, faith and hope, but the greatest is love. God showed us unconditional love in John 3:16. With the fruits of the Holy Spirit, we can also show charity to others. Thank you, for this wonderful Bible Study Program! may God richly bless you all!
