    Definitions for 1 Corinthians 16:21

    Salutation - A greeting.

    Clarke's Commentary on 1 Corinthians 16:21

    The salutation of me Paul with mine own hand - This should be rendered: "The salutation is written by the hand of me Paul;" γεγραπται, is written, being understood. It is very likely that the apostle wrote this and the following verses with his own hand. The rest, though dictated by him, was written by an amanuensis.

    Barnes' Notes on 1 Corinthians 16:21

    The salutation of me, Paul, with mine own hand - It is evident that Paul was accustomed to employ an amanuensis (copyist) in penning his epistles (see the note on Romans 16:22), though he signed his own name, and expressed his Christian salutation in every epistle, 2 Thessalonians 3:17; compare Colossians 4:18. This gave a sanction to what was written; was a proof that it was his own, and was a valuable token of affectionate regard. It was a proof that there was no fraud or imposition. Why he employed an amanuensis is not known.

    Wesley's Notes on 1 Corinthians 16:21

    16:21 With my own hand - What precedes having been wrote by an amanuensis.
