1 Corinthians 12:4 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

Diversities (διαιρέσεις)

Only here in the New Testament. It may also be rendered distributions. There is no objection to combining both meanings, a distribution of gifts implying a diversity. 1 Corinthians 12:11, however, seems to favor distributions.

Gifts (χαρισμάτων)

See on Romans 1:11.

Administrations (διακονιῶν)

Rev., better, ministrations. Compare Ephesians 4:12. In the New Testament commonly of spiritual service of an official character. See Acts 1:25; Acts 6:4; Acts 20:24; Romans 11:13; 1 Timothy 1:12; and on minister, Matthew 20:26.
