Wesley's Notes for 1 Corinthians 4:4

People's Bible Notes for 1 Corinthians 4:4


1Co 4:4 For I know nothing by myself. In the Revised Version, "against myself". In his own judgment he had been a faithful steward at Corinth, but that did not justify him, for he must be judged by the Lord. To the Lord, then, he must give a satisfactory account.
