Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on 1 Corinthians 12:8-10.


1 Corinthians 12:10

_ _ working of miracles — As “healings” are miracles, those here meant must refer to miracles of special and extraordinary POWER (so the Greek for “miracles” means); for example, healings might be effected by human skill in course of time; but the raising of the dead, the infliction of death by a word, the innocuous use of poisons, etc., are miracles of special power. Compare Mark 6:5; Acts 19:11.

_ _ prophecy — Here, probably, not in the wider sense of public teaching by the Spirit (1 Corinthians 11:4, 1 Corinthians 11:5; 1 Corinthians 14:1-5, 1 Corinthians 14:22-39); but, as its position between “miracles” and a “discerning of spirits” implies, the inspired disclosure of the future (Acts 11:27, Acts 11:28; Acts 21:11; 1 Timothy 1:18), [Henderson]. It depends on “faith” (1 Corinthians 12:9; Romans 12:6). The prophets ranked next to the apostles (1 Corinthians 12:28; Ephesians 3:5; Ephesians 4:11). As prophecy is part of the whole scheme of redemption, an inspired insight into the obscurer parts of the existing Scriptures, was the necessary preparation for the miraculous foresight of the future.

_ _ discerning of spirits — discerning between the operation of God’s Spirit, and the evil spirit, or unaided human spirit (1 Corinthians 14:29; compare 1 Timothy 4:1; 1 John 4:1).

_ _ kinds of tongues — the power of speaking various languages: also a spiritual language unknown to man, uttered in ecstasy (1 Corinthians 14:2-12). This is marked as a distinct genus in the Greek, “To another and a different class.”

_ _ interpretation of tongues — (1 Corinthians 14:13, 1 Corinthians 14:26, 1 Corinthians 14:27).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 1 Corinthians 12:1-11.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

1 Corinthians 12:10

The working of other miracles. Prophecy — Foretelling things to come. The discerning — Whether men be of an upright spirit or no; whether they have natural or supernatural gifts for offices in the church; and whether they who profess to speak by inspiration speak from a divine, a natural, or a diabolical spirit.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

1 Corinthians 12:10

To another the (i) working of miracles; to another (k) prophecy; to another (l) discerning of spirits; to another [divers] kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues:

(i) By "working" he means those great workings of God's mighty power, which pass and excel among his miracles, as the delivery of his people by the hand of Moses: that which he did by Elijah against the priests of Baal, in sending down fire from heaven to consume his sacrifice: and that which he did by Peter, in the matter of Ananias and Sapphira.

(k) Foretelling of things to come.

(l) By which false prophets are know from true, in which Peter surpassed Philip in exposing Simon Magus; (Acts 8:20).
