This Chapter Verse Commentaries:

1Co 7:35. Αὐτῶν, your own.-βρόχον, a snare) A snare, the fear of committing sin, where there is no sin, or even forced service. Men are unwillingly drawn into a snare, Pro 7:21, LXX. That is readily considered as a snare, which is most conducive to profit [σύμφερον].-εὔσχημον) an antithesis to ἀσχημονεῖν, in the following verse.-εὐπάρεδρον) akin to this is the verb προσεδρεύειν, in 1Co 9:13. An example is found in Luk 10:39.-τῷ Κυρίῳ, to the Lord) εὐπάρεδρον, as well as παρεδρεύω, governs the dative.-ἀπερισπάστως) This explains the word εὐπάρεδρον, for assiduous attendance upon the Lord, and distraction, are the reverse of each other. Sitting [involved in the εὐπάρεδρον] assists the devout mind. Comp. Luk 10:39-40. Paul says something similar of the widow, 1Ti 5:5.
