This Chapter Verse Commentaries:

1Co 14:7. Αὐλὸς-κιθάρα, a pipe-a harp) Two of the chief musical instruments; not only the pipe, which is, as it were, animated by the breath of the piper, but also the harp.-τοῖς φθόγγοις, in the sounds) The ablative case comp. by, 1Co 14:9.-πῶς γνωσθήσειται, how shall it be known) how shall pipe be distinguished from pipe, and harp from harp? There is one and then another sound of one and the same instrument, when it is directed to different things.
