This Chapter Verse Commentaries:

1Co 16:1. Λογίας, collection) A plain [not figurative] term well adapted to the commencement of this subject, 1Co 16:2 : it is called a blessing,[153] 2Co 9:5.-εἰς τοὺς ἁγίους, for the saints) He would rather call them the saints than the poor; and he does so both because this appellation is suited to the importance of the object and fitted for obtaining it.-διέταξα, I have given order) by apostolic authority, which was familiar to the Galatians.-Γαλατίας, of Galatia) He proposes the Galatians as an example to the Corinthians, the Corinthians to the Macedonians, the Corinthians and Macedonians to the Romans: 2Co 9:2; Rom 15:26. There is great force in examples.

[153] εὐλογία, a figurative term for bounty; whereas here the plain term λογία is used.-ED.
