Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

1 Corinthians 16:22

_ _ A solemn closing warning added in his own hand as in Ephesians 6:24; Colossians 4:18.

_ _ the Lord — who ought to be “loved” above Paul, Apollos, and all other teachers. Love to one another is to be in connection with love to Him above all. Ignatius [Epistle to the Romans, 7] writes of Christ, “My love, has been crucified” (compare Song of Songs 2:7).

_ _ Jesus Christ — omitted in the oldest manuscripts.

_ _ let him be Anathemaaccursed with that curse which the Jews who call Jesus “accursed” (1 Corinthians 12:3) are bringing righteously on their own heads [Bengel]. So far from “saluting” him, I bid him be accursed.

_ _ MaranathaSyriac for, “the Lord cometh.” A motto or watchword to urge them to preparedness for the Lord’s coming; as in Philippians 4:5, “The Lord is at hand.”

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 1 Corinthians 16:19-24.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

1 Corinthians 16:22

If any man love not the Lord Jesus Christ — If any be an enemy to his person, offices, doctrines, or commands. Let him be Anathema. Maran — atha — Anathema signifies a thing devoted to destruction. It seems to have been customary with the Jews of that age, when they had pronounced any man an Anathema, to add the Syriac expression, Maran — atha, that is, "The Lord cometh;" namely, to execute vengeance upon him. This weighty sentence the apostle chose to write with his own hand; and to insert it between his salutation and solemn benediction, that it might be the more attentively regarded.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

1 Corinthians 16:22

If any man love not the Lord Jesus Christ, let him be Anathema (m) Maranatha.

(m) By these words are meant the severest type of curse and excommunication that was among the Jews: and the words are as much as to say, "As our Lord comes". So that his meaning may be this, "Let him be accursed even to the coming of the Lord", that is to say, to the day of his death, even for ever.
