Darby's Synopsis of the New Testament

1 Corinthians 2

Introduction

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

Verse 2

2:2 know (l-9) Oida , vers. 2,11 (1st), 12; ginosko , vers. 8,11 (2nd), 14,16.

Verse 5

2:5 stand (m-6) Lit. 'be.'

Verse 6

2:6 world, (n-13) world, (n-20) Aion . see ch. 1.20, Note c. In ver. 6 'world' has a moral signification. see Ephesians 2:2 .

Verse 7

2:7 ages (o-18) Or 'worlds' (ver. 7), 'world' (ver. 8). I add this in note to keep up the connection with 'world' in ver. 6.

Verse 8

2:8 age (o-8) Or 'worlds' (ver. 7), 'world' (ver. 8). I add this in note to keep up the connection with 'world' in ver. 6.

Verse 9

2:9 written, (p-6) See Isaiah 64:4 .

Verse 10

2:10 [his] (a-8) Or 'the Spirit.'

Verse 11

2:11 man (b-11) 'Man' here has the article, but the sense is this. what is in man's mind is not known of any but the spirit of the man himself, who has the thoughts; much more is it so with God.

Verse 12

2:12 Spirit (c-13) Note here again the difficulty, arising from 'spirit' used for cause and state, as to putting a large S to signify the person of the Holy Spirit.

Verse 13

2:13 wisdom, (d-11) It may perhaps be translated, 'taught words of human wisdom.' communicating (e-19) Or 'expounding.' it means literally 'mixing or putting together;' as interpreting or expounding, it is common in the LXX. Genesis 40:8 ; Genesis 41:12 ,Genesis 41:15 ; 'determined,' Numbers 15:34 .

Verse 14

2:14 natural (f-3) Psuchikos . the man animated merely by his created soul, without the teaching and power of the Holy Spirit.

Verse 16

2:16 him? (g-13) See Isaiah 40:13-14 . mind (h-18) Nous , 'the intelligent faculty;' see Note, ch. 1.5.
