1:2 saints, (a-17) Saints by [divine] calling.

Verse 2

11:2 directions. (h-24) The word translated 'directed,' 'directions,' is used for any instruction or ordinance delivered by word of mouth or writing. As 'instructions,' 2 Thessalonians 2:15 .

Verse 3

11:3 man, (i-15) Aner . 'man' in contrast with 'woman.' see John 6:10 .

Verse 7

11:7 man's (i-19) Aner . 'man' in contrast with 'woman.' see John 6:10 . his (k-8) Lit. 'the.' covered, (l-10) Or 'to cover his head;' middle voice. see Note, ch. 10.2.

Verse 14

11:14 if (c-10) I have not changed the effect of the rapidity of the apostle's style here, to make a smoother sentence, as the sense is clear.

Verse 17

11:17 prescribing (d-3) The Greek word is used in New Testament for 'charging,' or 'commanding.' see Matthew 10:5 ; Luke 5:14 , 'enjoined'; 1 Thessalonians 4:11 . praise, (e-16) See 'I praise' in ver. 2. that (f-18) Or 'because.'

Verse 19

11:19 sects (g-6) 'Schools' or 'parties' after a man's own opinion, as Galatians 5:20 .

Verse 22

11:22 not? (h-25) Or 'nothing' or 'none.'

Verse 24

11:24 me. (i-22) 'For the calling of me to mind.' The word translated 'remembrance' has an active signification of 'recalling' or 'calling to mind,' as a memorial. Cf. Hebrews 10:3 , 'a calling to mind of sins.'

Verse 25

11:25 supped, (k-9) Or 'after the supper,' from deipneo , to have a meal. in (l-17) En . see Note c, Matthew 3:11 .

Verse 29

11:29 judgment (m-9) Krima , i.e. anything that can be laid to our charge, or the subject of a judge's sentence. As 'sentence of guilt,' Romans 13:2 . Christ's krima was written on the cross.

Verse 31

11:31 ourselves, (n-5) ' Judged ourselves' is not the same in Greek as ' judged ,' used later in this ver. and in ver. 32, but as ' distinguish the Lord's body,' ver. 29. But 'distinguish' does not imply the active exercise of judgment on our own state, nor a formal scrutiny. Here the force is, If I scrutinize and judge myself, I shall not come under an actual judgment from the Lord's hand. Judging oneself has this force in English, while the Lord's judgment is felt to be a positive result of judgment exercised towards us.

Verse 34

11:34 judgment. (a-18) See Note, ver. 29.
