Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

1 Corinthians 7:30

_ _ they that weep ... wept not — (Compare 2 Corinthians 6:10).

_ _ they that buy ... possessed not — (Compare Isaiah 24:1, Isaiah 24:2). Christ specifies as the condemning sin of the men of Sodom not merely their open profligacy, but that “they bought, they sold,” etc., as men whose all was in this world (Luke 17:28). “Possessed” in the Greek implies a holding fast of a possession; this the Christian will not do, for his “enduring substance” is elsewhere (Hebrews 10:34).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 1 Corinthians 7:25-35.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

1 Corinthians 7:30

And they that weep, as if they wept not — "Though sorrowful, yet always rejoicing." They that rejoice, as if they rejoiced not — Tempering their joy with godly fear. They that buy, as if they possessed not — Knowing themselves to be only stewards, not proprietors.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

1 Corinthians 7:30

And they that (b) weep, as though they wept not; and they that rejoice, as though they rejoiced not; and they that buy, as though they possessed not;

(b) By "weeping" the Hebrews understand all adversity, and by "joy", all prosperity.
