Another (ἕτερος)

See on Matthew 6:24. Not merely another, numerically, but another of different affinities and prepossessions.

Carnal

The best texts read ἄνθρωποι men. Are ye not mere men?

But ministers

Omit but, and place the interrogations after Paul and Apollos, respectively, as Rev. For ministers see on Matthew 20:26; see on Mark 9:35. Servants, not heads of parties.
