Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

1 Corinthians 1:31

_ _ glory in ... Lord — (Jeremiah 9:23, Jeremiah 9:24) — in opposition to “flesh glorying in His presence” (1 Corinthians 1:29). In contrast to morbid slavish self-abasement, Paul joins with humility the elevating consciousness of our true dignity in Christ. He who glories is to glory in the Lord, not in the flesh, nor in the world.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 1 Corinthians 1:17-31.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

1 Corinthians 1:31

Let him glory in the Lord — Not in himself, not in the flesh, not in the world. Jeremiah 9:23-24

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

1 Corinthians 1:31

That, according as it is written, (b) He that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord.

(b) Let him yield all to God and give him thanks: and so by this place is man's free will beaten down, which the papists so dream about.
