People's Bible Notes for 1 Corinthians 14:29


1Co 14:29 Let the prophets speak two or three. Let two or three prophets speak at a meeting. In the Greek, "two or three" are in the nominative. In 1Co 14:27, in which speaking with tongues is treated, the numerals are in the accusative case with a preposition. Hence there, with Macknight, I have referred to them to the sentences spoken. If the persons speaking were meant in 1Co 14:27, the construction would be as in this verse. Let the others judge. Let them discern whether they speak by inspiration.
