Now these things, brethren, I have transferred, in their applicationm, to myself and Apollos, for your sakes, that ye may learn in us the lesson of not letting your thoughts go above what is written, that ye may not be puffed up one for such a one against another.

The word is used for a metaphor, no doubt, because a metaphor transfers the thoughts as to one object, to another which is an image of it. Amos says, "The lion has roared," speaking of God's threatening ways with Israel, as if he were his prey. in thought it is to be transferred to Israel. So here Paul is really speaking of those who came with great pretensions amongst the Corinthians, and he transferred it to himself and Apollos, that he might establish the principle universally, without naming these persons. By saying he "transferred" it, the application was easy. but one can hardly say that is a figure.

aAnd these things, brethren, I transferred to myself and Apollos on your account, that ye may in our case learn, Nothing above what is written, in order that ye be not puffed up one for one against another.
