1 Corinthians 161:2 saints, (a-17) Saints by [divine] calling.16:1 directed (g-10) It means ordering troops, so as to set them in array; and in general, thence, any order directing any plan to be followed. 16:3 letters (a-15) It may be read 'whomsoever ye shall approve by letters, I will send them to carry,' &c. 16:7 will (b-3) Not exactly 'purpose;' but 'it is not my desire or intention.' 16:12 much (c-9) It may mean 'often,' but the word is used for 'much' in v. 19. will (d-26) Or 'but it was not, at any rate, his will.' 16:14 do (e-5) Lit. 'all your things.' 16:15 know (f-7) Oida. It refers to their inward acquaintance with their qualities, not objective knowledge. themselves (g-23) 'Devoted themselves,' &c. In sum this is the sense; but the force of the apostle's phrase is not wholly given. The Greek word means 'appointed to,' as an officer to a regiment. The family of Stephanas had appointed themselves to the saints for service -- given themselves up to serve them, or rather given themselves up to them. 'The saints' is governed by the verb, not by 'service.' The idea resulting from what I have given in the text is more what the apostle means. 16:22 love (h-4) Phileo. see John 5.20. Maranatha. (i-14) Meaning, 'Accursed -- the Lord cometh.'
