1 Corinthians 15:25
For he must reign, till he hath put all enemies under his feet.









(3, 4) Shall subdue . . . shall choose.--Rather, subdues, chooses, indicating a continued manifestation of the Divine favour.

(3) Our inheritance.--The LXX. read, "his inheritance," suggesting that originally the passage may have run, He chooses us for His inheritance, an even commoner thought in the Hebrew mind than that of the present text, that Jehovah chose Canaan as an inheritance for Israel.

Verse 3. - He shall subdue the people under us; rather, he subdues, or hath subdued, peoples under us. The reference is to recent victories (comp. Psalm 18:47). And the nations (rather, and nations) under our feet. David subdued all the nations between the river of Egypt and the Euphrates, and left the inheritance of this kingdom, or rather empire, to Solomon (1 Kings 4:21).
