Ministry on This Verse

I praise.
or, traditions.
 It is not without instruction for us that the apostle can praise in the midst of so much too justly merited reproof. He loved to approve all he could. (Notes on 1 Corinthians 11:2-16 by W. Kelly)
 Tradition in scripture is used,, not only for the added maxims of men, as in Matt. 15, but for what the apostles enjoined on the saints, first orally, then in inspired writings, as also in both ways, while the canon was in course and not yet complete. Compare also Rom. 6:17; 2 Thess. 2:15. (Notes on 1 Corinthians 11:2-16 by W. Kelly)

J. N. Darby Translation

Now I praise you, that in all things ye are mindful of me; and that as I have directed you, ye keep the directionsh.

JND Translation Notes
