Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

1 Corinthians 1:7

_ _ ye come behind — are inferior to other Christians elsewhere [Grotius].

_ _ in no gift — not that all had all gifts, but different persons among them had different gifts (1 Corinthians 12:4, etc.).

_ _ waiting for ... coming of ... Christ — The crowning proof of their “coming behind in no gift.” Faith, hope, and love, are all exercised herein (compare 2 Timothy 4:8; Titus 2:13). “Leaving to others their Memento Mori (remember death), do thou earnestly cherish this joyous expectation of the Lord’s coming” [Bengel]. The Greek verb implies, “to expect constantly, not only for a certain time, but even to the end till the expected event happens” (Romans 8:19, [Tittmann, Greek Synonyms of the New Testament]).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 1 Corinthians 1:1-9.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

1 Corinthians 1:7

Waiting — With earnest desire. For the glorious revelation of our Lord Jesus Christ — A sure mark of a true or false Christian, to long for, or dread, this revelation.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

1 Corinthians 1:7

So that ye come behind in no gift; (10) waiting for the (f) coming of our Lord Jesus Christ:

(10) He says along the way that there is no reason why they should be so pleased in those gifts which they had received, seeing that those were nothing in comparison of those which are to be looked for.

(f) He speaks of the last coming of Christ.
