Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

1 Corinthians 4:13

_ _ defamed, we entreat — namely, God for our defamers, as Christ enjoined (Matthew 5:10, Matthew 5:44) [Grotius]. We reply gently [Estius].

_ _ filth — “the refuse” [Conybeare and Howson], the sweepings or rubbish thrown out after a cleaning.

_ _ of all things — not of the “World” only.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 1 Corinthians 4:7-13.

We are made as the filth of the world, and offscouring of all things — Such were those poor wretches among the heathens, who were taken from the dregs of the people, to be offered as expiatory sacrifices to the infernal gods. They were loaded with curses, affronts, and injuries, all the way they went to the altars; and when the ashes of those unhappy men were thrown into the sea, these very names were given them in the ceremony.
