    Clarke's Commentary on 1 Corinthians 11:1

    Be ye followers of me - This verse certainly belongs to the preceding chapter, and is here out of all proper place and connection.

    Barnes' Notes on 1 Corinthians 11:1

    Be ye followers of me - Imitate my example in the matter now under discussion. As I deny myself; as I seek to give no offence to anyone; as I endeavor not to alarm the prejudices of others, but in all things to seek their salvation, so do you. This verse belongs to the previous chapter, and should not have been separated from it. It is the close of the discussion there.

    Even as I also am of Christ - I make Christ my example. He is my model in all things; and if you follow him, and follow me as far as I follow him, you will not err. This is the only safe example; and if we follow this, we can never go astray.
