1 Corinthians 3:15 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

Shall suffer loss (ζημιωθήσεται)

He shall be mulcted, not punished. See on Matthew 16:26; see on Luke 9:25.

He himself shall be saved

Compare Dante of Constantine:

"The next who follows, with the laws and me,

Under the good intent that bore bad fruit

Became a Greek by ceding to the pastor;

Now knoweth he how all the ill deduced

From his good action is not harmful to him,

Although the world thereby may be destroyed."

"Paradiso," xx. 55-60.

By fire (διὰ πυρός)

Better, Rev., through fire. He will escape as through the fire that consumes his work, as one does through the flames which destroy his house.
