Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

1 Corinthians 11:2

_ _ Here the chapter ought to begin.

_ _ ye remember me in all things — in your general practice, though in the particular instances which follow ye fail.

_ _ ordinancesGreek, “traditions,” that is, apostolic directions given by word of mouth or in writing (1 Corinthians 11:23; 1 Corinthians 15:3; 2 Thessalonians 2:15). The reference here is mainly to ceremonies: for in 1 Corinthians 11:23, as to the LORD’S SUPPER, which is not a mere ceremony, he says, not merely, “I delivered unto you,” but also, “I received of the Lord”; here he says only, “I delivered to you.” Romanists argue hence for oral traditions. But the difficulty is to know what is a genuine apostolic tradition intended for all ages. Any that can be proved to be such ought to be observed; any that cannot, ought to be rejected (Revelation 22:18). Those preserved in the written word alone can be proved to be such.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

1 Corinthians 11:2

(1) Now I praise you, brethren, that ye remember me in all things, and keep the ordinances, as I delivered [them] to you.

(1) The fifth treatise of this epistle concerning the right ordering of public assemblies, containing three points, that is of the comely apparel of men and women, of the order of the Lord's supper, and of the right use of spiritual gifts. But going about to reprehend certain things, he begins nonetheless with a general praise of them, calling those particular laws of comeliness and honesty, which belong to the ecclesiastical policy, traditions: which afterward they called cannons.
