Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

1 Corinthians 7:24

_ _ abide with God — being chiefly careful of the footing on which he stands towards God rather than that towards men. This clause, “with God,” limits the similar precept in 1 Corinthians 7:20. A man may cease to “abide in the calling wherein he was called,” and yet not violate the precept here. If a man’s calling be not favorable to his “abiding with God” (retaining holy fellowship with Him), he may use lawful means to change from it (compare Note, see on 1 Corinthians 7:21).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 1 Corinthians 7:17-24.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

1 Corinthians 7:24

Therein abide with God — Doing all things as unto God, and as in his immediate presence. They who thus abide with God preserve an holy indifference with regard to outward things.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

(15) Brethren, let every man, wherein he is called, therein abide with (r) God.
