1Co 7:22. Ἀπελεύθερος, freedman) Ἐλεύθερος, one free, and who also was never a slave; ἀπελεύθερος, a freedman, who had been a slave.-Κυρίου, of the Lord) Christ, which presently after occurs.-ὁ ἐλεὺθερος κληθεὶς, he that being free is called) At the beginning of the verse the word called is put before a servant; here free is placed before the word called, for the sake of emphasis, that he may be also included, who, in consequence of his calling, obtains the power of acquiring freedom. Comp. on the arrangement of the words, Gal 4:25, note.
