This Chapter Verse Commentaries:

1Co 14:31. Καθʼ ἕνα, one by one) so that one person may always give way to another.-πάντες μανθάνωσι, all may learn) by conversing, inquiring, speaking, listening: all, being prophets. A man learns by teaching: he learns by speaking, and asking questions, 1Co 14:34-35. [Many continue to be foolish and languid in spiritual things, because they almost never speak about such things.-V. g.]-παρακαλῶνται, may be comforted) Sometimes the speaking of another produces in us more awakening effect, sometimes our own.
