This Chapter Verse Commentaries:

1Co 1:11. Ἐδηλώθη, it hath been declared) an example of justifiable giving of information against others,-such information as ought not to be concealed without a reason, ch. 1Co 11:18.-ὑπὸ τῶν Χλόης, by those, who are of the house of Chloe) These men seem to have obtained the special approbation both of Paul and of the Corinthians; as also the matron Chloe [sc. seems to have had their approbation], whose sons the Corinthians sent with letters to Paul, ch. 1Co 7:1. They had sent Stephanas, Fortunatus and Achaicus, ch. 1Co 16:17, of whom the one or the other might even be a son of Chloe’s, by Stephanas as the father, 1Co 1:16; 1Co 16:15.-ριδες, contentions) He calls the thing by its own [right] name.
