1Co 14:6. Ἢ ἐν ἀποκαλύψει, ἢ ἐν γνώσει, ἢ ἐν προφητείᾳ, ἢ ἐν διδαχῇ, either in revelation, or in knowledge, or in prophecy, or in doctrine) Here are four kinds of prophecy broadly so called; the two former refer to the person himself, who rejoices in the gift; the two latter at the same time show more of a leaning towards the hearers. On the difference of prophecy (which corresponds to revelation) and of knowledge (with which doctrine agrees) see 1Co 12:8; 1Co 12:10 : and on the whole subject, below at 1Co 14:26, etc. Prophecy has relation to particular points, formerly not well understood, to mysteries to be known finally [and only] by revelation. Doctrine and knowledge are brought from the common storehouse of believers, and refer to things obvious in the matter of salvation.
 What Ernesti approves in Moldenhauer evidently agrees with these views.-Bibl. Theol., T. viii., p. 673.-E. B.
