1 Corinthians 12:15

If the foot shall say (ean eiph o pou). Condition of third class (ean and second aorist subjunctive eiph). In case the foot say. I am not of the body (ouk eimi ek tou swmato). I am independent of the body, not dependent on the body. It is not therefore not of the body (ou para touto ouk estin ek tou swmato). Thinking or saying so does not change the fact. Para touto here means "alongside of this" (cf. IV Macc. 10:19) and so "because of," a rare use (Robertson, Grammar, p. 616). The two negatives (ou--ouk) do not here destroy one another. Each retains its full force.
