This Chapter Verse Commentaries:

1Co 11:2. Ἐπαινῶ, I praise) [This verse is the proper commencement of the chapter.-Not. Crit.] Nowhere else does Paul so directly praise any of those, to whom he writes. But here he resolves to write about anything, which does not properly fall under his παραγγελίαν, admonition, to them, 1Co 11:17; in which, however, if they will follow the reasons, which he has set before them, and comply with the custom of the saints, 1Co 11:16, which he finally lays down as somewhat stringent, he assures the Corinthians, that they will be worthy of praise, and declares, that they will incur neither Peter’s indignation, nor his.-πάντα) κατὰ πάντα.-μου, me) construed with you remember, or with all things, 1Co 16:14.-παρέδωκα-παραδόσεις, I delivered-traditions [ordinances]) This is applied to doctrines, whether imparted to them by word of mouth, or by letters, whether they relate to mysteries, or ceremonies, 1Co 11:23; 1Co 15:3; 2Th 2:15 : they have a greater relation however to ceremonies. In 1Co 11:23, he says respecting the Lord’s Supper, that he both received and delivered; but here, he says, that he delivered, he does not say that he had received.
