1 Corinthians 2:9 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

Eye hath not seen, etc.

From Isaiah 64:4, freely rendered by Septuagint. The Hebrew reads: "From of old men have not heard, not perceived with the ear, eye has not seen a God beside Thee who does (gloriously) for him who waits on Him." Septuagint, "From of old we have not heard, nor have our eyes seen a God beside Thee, and Thy works which Thou wilt do for those who wait for mercy." Paul takes only the general idea from the Old-Testament passage. The words are not to be limited to future blessings in heaven. They are true of the present.

Have entered (ἀνέβη)

Lit., went up. See on Acts 7:23. Compare Daniel 2:29, Sept.

Heart (καρδίαν)

See on Romans 1:21.
