Bible Commentary for 1 Corinthians 14:33

Wesley's Notes for 1 Corinthians 14:33


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.

14:34 Let your women be silent in the churches - Unless they are under an extraordinary impulse of the Spirit. For, in other cases, it is not permitted them to speak - By way of teaching in public assemblies. But to be in subjection - To the man whose proper office it is to lead and to instruct the congregation. #Gen 3:16|.

14:35 And even if they desire to learn anything - Still they are not to speak in public, but to ask their own husbands at home - That is the place, and those the persons to inquire of.


People's Bible Notes for 1 Corinthians 14:33


1Co 14:33 For God is not [the author] of confusion. Such confusion as more than one speaking at a time is not of God. But of peace. God demands peace and order "in all the churches of the saints".
