Robertson's Word Pictures of the New Testament1 Corinthians 14:1
- Follow after love (diwkete thn agaphn).
- As if a veritable chase. Paul comes back to the idea in 12:31 (same use of zhloute) and proves the superiority of prophecy to the other spiritual gifts not counting faith, hope, love of 13:13.
- But rather that ye may prophesy (mallon de ina prophteuhte).
- Distinct aim in view as in verse 5. Old verb from prophthv, common in N.T. Present subjunctive, "that ye may keep on prophesying."
