1 Corinthians 1:26

ye see—rather, from the prominence of the verb in the Greek, "see" or "consider" (imperative) [ALFORD from Vulgate and IRENÆUS].

your calling . . . are called—Instead of the words in italics, supplied by English Version, supply, "were your callers." What Paul is dwelling on (compare I Corinthians 1:27-28) is the weakness of the instrumentality which the Lord employed to convert the world [HINDS and WHATELY; so ANSELM]. However, English Version accords well with I Corinthians 1:24. "The whole history of the expansion of the Church is a progressive victory of the ignorant over the learned, the lowly over the lofty, until the emperor himself laid down his crown before the cross of Christ" [OLSHAUSEN].

wise . . . after the flesh—the wisdom of this world acquired by human study without the Spirit. (Contrast Matthew 16:17).
