Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

1 Corinthians 10:22

_ _ Do we provoke the Lord to jealousy? — by dividing our fellowship between Him and idols (Ezekiel 20:39). Is it our wish to provoke Him to assert His power? Deuteronomy 32:21 is before the apostle’s mind [Alford], (Exodus 20:5).

_ _ are we stronger? — that we can risk a contest with Him.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 1 Corinthians 10:15-22.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

1 Corinthians 10:22

Do we provoke the Lord to jealousy — By thus caressing his rivals? Are we stronger than he — Are we able to resist, or to bear his wrath?
