Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

1 Corinthians 1:11

_ _ (1 Corinthians 11:18).

_ _ by them ... of ... house of Chloe — They seem to have been alike in the confidence of Paul and of the Corinthians. The Corinthians “wrote” to the apostle (1 Corinthians 7:1), consulting him concerning certain points; marriage, the eating of things offered to idols, the decorum to be observed by women in religious assemblies. But they said not a syllable about the enormities and disorders that had crept in among them. That information reached Paul by other quarters. Hence his language about those evils is, “It hath been declared unto me,” etc.; “It is reported commonly” (1 Corinthians 5:1, 1 Corinthians 5:2). All this he says before he refers to their letter, which shows that the latter did not give him any intimation of those evils. An undesigned proof of genuineness [Paley, Horae Paulinae]. Observe his prudence: He names the family, to let it be seen that he made his allegation not without authority: he does not name the individuals, not to excite odium against them. He tacitly implies that the information ought rather to have come to him directly from their presbyters, as they had consulted him about matters of less moment.

_ _ contentions — not so severe a word as “divisions,” literally, “schisms” (1 Corinthians 1:10, Margin).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 1 Corinthians 1:10-13.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

1 Corinthians 1:11

It hath been declared to me by them of the family of Chloe — Whom some suppose to have been the wife of Stephanas, and the mother of Fortunatus and Achaicus. By these three the Corinthians had sent their letter to St. Paul, 1 Corinthians 16:17. That there are contentions — A word equivalent with schisms in the preceding verse.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

1 Corinthians 1:11

(14) For it hath been declared unto me of you, my brethren, by them [which are of the house] of Chloe, that there are contentions among you.

(14) He begins his reprehension and chiding by taking away an objection, because he understood from good witnesses that there were many factions among them. And in addition he declares the cause of dissentions, because some depended on one teacher, some on another, and some were so addicted to themselves that they neglected all teachers and learned men, calling themselves the disciples of Christ alone, completely ignoring their teachers.
