15 If the work of any one shall be consumed, he shall suffer loss, but *he* shall be saved, but so as through [the] fire.

References for 1 Corinthians 3:15

    • e 3:15 - The addition of the article gives the right sense: 'saved by fire' may mean that the fire was a means of safety, whereas 'through the fire' is in spite of it, or going through the danger and difficulty of it. Dia has two distinct uses as 'through' in English: see 1Pet. 3.20 for the other sense.
