“If any thing be revealed to another that sitteth by, let the first hold his peace.”
King James Version (KJV)
14:28 Let him speak - That tongue, if he find it profitable to himself in his private devotions.
14:29 Let two or three of the prophets - Not more, at one meeting. Speak - One after another, expounding the scripture.
14:31 All - Who have that gift. That all may learn - Both by speaking and by hearing.
14:32 For the spirits of the prophets are subject to the prophets - But what enthusiast considers this? The impulses of the Holy Spirit, even in men really inspired, so suit themselves to their rational faculties, as not to divest them of the government of themselves, like the heathen priests under their diabolical possession. Evil spirits threw their prophets into such ungovernable ecstasies, as forced them to speak and act like madmen. But the Spirit of God left his prophets the clear use of their judgment, when, and how long, it was fit for them to speak, and never hurried them into any improprieties either as to the matter, manner, or time of their speaking.
1Co 14:30 If [any thing] be revealed. If the prophetic impulse comes upon a hearer, let the first hold his peace. Let the first desist. Let only one speak at a time.
If any thing be reueiled to another that sitteth by, let the first hold his peace.
