1 Corinthians 1:26

Behold (blepete). Same form for imperative present active plural and indicative. Either makes sense as in John 5:39 eraunate and I Corinthians 14:1 pisteuete.

Calling (klhsin). The act of calling by God, based not on the external condition of those called (klhtoi, verse I Corinthians 1:2), but on God's sovereign love. It is a clinching illustration of Paul's argument, an argumentum AD hominen.

How that (oti). Explanatory apposition to klhsin.

After the flesh (kata sarka). According to the standards of the flesh and to be used not only with sofoi (wise, philosophers), but also dunatoi (men of dignity and power), eugeneiv (noble, high birth), the three claims to aristocracy (culture, power, birth).

Are called. Not in the Greek, but probably to be supplied from the idea in klhsin.
