Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

1 Corinthians 13:7

_ _ Beareth all things — without speaking of what it has to bear. The same Greek verb as in 1 Corinthians 9:12. It endures without divulging to the world personal distress. Literally said of holding fast like a watertight vessel; so the charitable man contains himself in silence from giving vent to what selfishness would prompt under personal hardship.

_ _ believeth all things — unsuspiciously believes all that is not palpably false, all that it can with a good conscience believe to the credit of another. Compare James 3:17, “easy to be entreated”; Greek, “easily persuaded.”

_ _ hopeth — what is good of another, even when others have ceased to hope.

_ _ endureth — persecutions in a patient and loving spirit.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 1 Corinthians 13:4-7.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

1 Corinthians 13:7

Love covereth all things — Whatever evil the lover of mankind sees, hears, or knows of any one, he mentions it to none; it never goes out of his lips, unless where absolute duty constrains to speak. Believeth all things — Puts the most favourable construction on everything, and is ever ready to believe whatever may tend to the advantage of any one character. And when it can no longer believe well, it hopes whatever may excuse or extenuate the fault which cannot be denied. Where it cannot even excuse, it hopes God will at length give repentance unto life. Meantime it endureth all things — Whatever the injustice, the malice, the cruelty of men can inflict. He can not only do, but likewise suffer, all things, through Christ who strengtheneth him.
