This Chapter Verse Commentaries:

1Co 14:21. Νόμῳ, in the law) comprehending also the prophets.-ἐν ἑτερογλώσσοις καὶ ἐν χείλεσιν ἑτέροις) Isa 28:11, LXX. διὰ φαυλισμὸν χειλέων διὰ γλώσσης ἑτέρας, ἑτερογλώσσοις; masculine or neuter. The paraphrase accommodating the text of Isaiah to this passage of Paul may be as follows: This people do not hear Me, though I speak to them in the language, to which they have been accustomed; I will therefore speak to them in other tongues, namely, of the enemies that are sent against them; but even then they will not listen to me, comp. Jer 5:15. Since God is said to speak in the tongues of enemies, the parity of reasoning holds good from them to the gift of tongues.-οὐδʼ οὕτως εἰσακούσονται μου) Isa 28:12, καὶ οὐκ ἠθέλησαν ἀκούειν, And they would not hear.
