Revelation (1 Cor. 14:30)

“If a revelation

Is made

To someone else

Sitting nearby,

Let the first person

Be silent!”

ἐὰν δὲ ἄλλῳ ἀποκαλυφθῇ καθημένῳ, ὁ πρῶτος σιγάτω.

Paul said that if a revelation is made (ἐὰν δὲ ἄλλῳ ἀποκαλυφθῇ) to someone else sitting nearby (καθημένῳ), let the first person be silent (ὁ πρῶτος σιγάτω)!  Paul explained that someone could give a revelation or prophetic wisdom comment to someone beside him.  Then they had to be silent.  Paul did not want any long speeches or other people speaking at the same time.  Just as he had mentioned that two or three prophets could speak, there should be a quiet meditative time of silence for the others to consider what was just said.  Do you listen attentively at your common worship services?
