THE FIRST EPISTLE OF PAUL THE APOSTLE TO THE CORINTHIANS - Chapter 14 - Verse 12

Verse 12. Even so ye. Since you desire spiritual gifts, I may urge it upon you to seek to be able to speak in a clear and intelligible manner, that you may edify the church. This is one of the most valuable endowments of the Spirit; and this should be earnestly desired.

Forasmuch as ye are zealous. Since you earnestly desire. See Barnes "1 Co 12:31".

 

Spiritual gifts. The endowments conferred by the Holy Spirit. See Barnes "1 Co 12:1".

 

Seek that ye may excel, etc. Seek that you may be able to convey truth in a clear and plain manner; seek to be distinguished for that. It is one of the most rare and valuable endowments of the Holy Spirit.

{2} "spiritual gifts" "spirits"
