Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

1 Corinthians 14:10

_ _ it may be — that is, perhaps, speaking by conjecture. “It may chance” (1 Corinthians 15:37).

_ _ so many — as may be enumerated by investigators of such matters. Compare “so much,” used generally for a definite number left undefined (Acts 5:8; also 2 Samuel 12:8).

_ _ kinds of voices — kinds of articulate speech.

_ _ without significationwithout articulate voice (that is, distinct meaning). None is without its own voice, or mode of speech, distinct from the rest.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 1 Corinthians 14:6-14.

(4) He proves that interpretation is necessarily to be joined with the gift of tongues, by the manifold variety of languages, insomuch that if one speak to another without an interpreter, it is as if he did not speak.
