1 Corinthians 14:8 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

The trumpet (σάλπιγξ)

Properly, a war-trumpet.

Sound (φωνὴν)

Rev., much better, voice, preserving the distinction between the mere sound of the trumpet and the modulated notes. The case might be illustrated by the bugle calls or points by which military commands are issued, as distinguished from the mere blare of the trumpet.
