This Chapter Verse Commentaries:

1Co 14:26. Ἕκαστος, every one) The public assembly was at that time more fruitful, than in the present day, wherein one individual, whatever may be the state of his mind, must fill up the time with a sermon.-ψαλμὸν ἔχει) has a psalm, in habit of mind or in actual fact, either a little before, or only now: comp. 1Co 14:30. Extemporary hymns were given to them by the Spirit. Individuals had a psalm, wherewith to praise God, or a doctrine to be imparted to his neighbour; or a tongue, by which they might speak every one to himself. The word ἔχει, has, repeated, elegantly expresses the abundance of the gifts, which had been divided.-ἀποκάλυψιν, revelation) by which God communicates something to man; Gal 2:2, prophetical revelation, 1Co 14:30; 1Co 14:29.-ἑρμηνείαν, interpretation) by which one man may interpret an unknown tongue to another.-οἰκοδομὴν, edification) the best rule.
