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.
