Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

1 Corinthians 13:9-10

_ _ in part — partially and imperfectly. Compare a similar contrast to the “perfect man,” “the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ” (Ephesians 4:11-13).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 1 Corinthians 13:8-13.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

1 Corinthians 13:9

For we know in part, and we prophesy in part — The wisest of men have here but short, narrow, imperfect conceptions, even of the things round about them, and much more of the deep things of God. And even the prophecies which men deliver from God are far from taking in the whole of future events, or of that wisdom and knowledge of God which is treasured up in the scripture revelation.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

1 Corinthians 13:9

(4) For we know in (h) part, and we prophesy in part.

(4) The reason: because we are now in the state that we have need to learn daily, and therefore we have need of those helps, that is, of the gift of tongues, and knowledge, and also of those that teach by them. But to what purpose serve they then, when we have obtained and gotten the full knowledge of God, which serve now but for those who are imperfect and go by degrees to perfection?

(h) We learn imperfectly.
