Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

1 Corinthians 8:2

_ _ And — omitted in the oldest manuscripts The absence of the connecting particle gives an emphatical sententiousness to the style, suitable to the subject. The first step to knowledge is to know our own ignorance. Without love there is only the appearance of knowledge.

_ _ knoweth — The oldest manuscripts read a Greek word implying personal experimental acquaintance, not merely knowledge of a fact, which the Greek of “we know” or are aware (1 Corinthians 8:1) means.

_ _ as he ought to know — experimentally and in the way of “love.”

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 1 Corinthians 8:1-3.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

1 Corinthians 8:2

If any man think he knoweth any thing — Aright, unless so far he is taught by God. He knoweth nothing yet as he ought to know — Seeing there is no true knowledge without divine love.
