Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

1 Corinthians 10:31

_ _ Contrast Zechariah 7:6; the picture of worldly men. The godly may “eat and drink,” and it shall be well with him (Jeremiah 22:15, Jeremiah 22:16).

_ _ to the glory of God — (Colossians 3:17; 1 Peter 4:11) — which involves our having regard to the edification of our neighbor.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 1 Corinthians 10:23-33.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

1 Corinthians 10:31

(9) Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God.

(9) The conclusion: we must order ourselves in such a way that we seek not ourselves, but God's glory, and so the salvation of as many as we may. In which the apostle does not thrust himself to the Corinthians (even his own flock) as an example, except so that he calls them back to Christ, to whom he himself has regard.
