Darby's Synopsis of the New Testament

1 Corinthians 13

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

Verse 2

13:2 know (b-7) Oida . see Note, ch. 8.1.

Verse 4

13:4 rash, (c-18) Or 'vain-glorious.'

Verse 7

13:7 bears (d-1) Or 'covers.'

Verse 9

13:9 know (e-3) Ginosko . see Note, ch. 8.1.

Verse 11

13:11 felt (f-12) What the mind or thoughts are upon. As Matthew 16:23 ; Romans 8:5 ; Philippians 3:19 ; Colossians 3:2 .

Verse 12

13:12 window (g-8) That is, through some medium which, in degree, hinders vision. The word means also 'a mirror,' but it is used for window, made, not of clear transparent glass, as now, but of semi-transparent materials. In this verse, 'know' (partially) is ginosko , the words used for 'know' and 'known' in the last clause of the verse are from epiginosko , which is stronger, as in Matthew 11:27 .
