This Chapter Verse Commentaries:

1Co 15:25. Δεῖ, He must) for it has been foretold.-αὐτὸν, He) Christ.-βασιλεύειν, reign) ררה, reign Thou in the midst of Thy enemies, Psa 110:2.-ἄχρις οὗ ἄν, until) There will be no further need of the mediatorial reign.-θῇ, He hath put) viz. the Father.-πάντας, all) Paul brings in this, to prepare for a transition to what follows.-τοὺς ἐχθροὺς, enemies) bodily and spiritual, supply His, from that expression, His feet, to wit, the Son’s: but it is now elegantly elliptical; since Christ has long ago destroyed these enemies, in so far as they were the enemies of Christ; He will destroy them [their destruction is still future], in so far as they are our enemies. The remaining part of His victory bears the same relation to His triumph already achieved, as any frontier or corner does to the whole extent of any human monarchy which has been subdued.
