Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

1 Corinthians 1:29

_ _ no flesh ... glory — For they who try to glory (boast) because of human greatness and wisdom, are “confounded” or put to shame (1 Corinthians 1:27). Flesh, like “the flower of the field,” is beautiful, but frail (Isaiah 40:6).

_ _ in his presence — We are to glory not before Him, but in Him [Bengel].

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 1 Corinthians 1:17-31.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

That no flesh — A fit appellation. Flesh is fair, but withering as grass. May glory before God — In God we ought to glory.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

1 Corinthians 1:29

That no (z) flesh should glory in his presence.

(z) "Flesh" is often, as we see, taken for the whole man: and he uses this word "flesh" very well, to contrast the weak and miserable condition of man with the majesty of God.
