Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on 1 Corinthians 11:7-9.


1 Corinthians 11:9

_ _ Neither — rather, “For also”; Another argument: The immediate object of woman’s creation. “The man was not created for the sake of the woman; but the woman for the sake of the man” (Genesis 2:18, Genesis 2:21, Genesis 2:22). Just as the Church, the bride, is made for Christ; and yet in both the natural and the spiritual creations, the bride, while made for the bridegroom, in fulfilling that end, attains her own true “glory,” and brings “shame” and “dishonor” on herself by any departure from it (1 Corinthians 11:4, 1 Corinthians 11:6).

Matthew Henry's Commentary
