1 Corinthians 3:8 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
He that planteth and he that watereth are one - Both Paul and Apollos have received the same doctrine, preach the same doctrine, and labor to promote the glory of God in the salvation of your souls. Why should you be divided with respect to Paul and Apollos, while these apostles are intimately One in spirit, design, and operation?

In this sense none can say, I have labored in vain, and spent my strength for nought.
