Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

1 Corinthians 9:10

_ _ altogether — Join this with “saith.” “Does he (the divine lawgiver) by all means say it for our sakes?” It would be untrue, that God saith it altogether (in the sense of solely) for our sakes. But it is true, that He by all means saith it for our sakes as the ultimate object in the lower world. Grotius, however, translates, “mainly” or “especially,” instead of altogether.

_ _ that — “meaning that” [Alford]; literally, “because.”

_ _ should ploughought to plough in hope. The obligation rests with the people not to let their minister labor without remuneration.

_ _ he that thresheth in hope should be partaker of his hope — The oldest manuscript versions and Fathers read, “He that thresheth (should or ought to thresh) in the hope of partaking” (namely, of the fruit of his threshing). “He that plougheth,” spiritually, is the first planter of a church in a place (compare 1 Corinthians 3:6, 1 Corinthians 3:9); “he that thresheth,” the minister who tends a church already planted.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 1 Corinthians 9:3-14.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

1 Corinthians 9:10

He who ploweth ought to plow in hope — Of reaping. This seems to be a proverbial expression. And he that thresheth in hope — Ought not to be disappointed, ought to eat the fruit of his labours. And ought they who labour in God's husbandry. Deuteronomy 25:4
