1 Peter 4:11

If any man speaketh (ei ti lalei). Condition of first class, assumed as a fact. Speaking as it were oracles of God (w logia qeou). No predicate in this conclusion of the condition. For logia qeou see Acts 7:38 (Mosaic law); Romans 3:2 (the Old Testament); Hebrews 5:12 (the substance of Christian teaching), here of the utterances of God through Christian teachers. Logion (old word) is a diminutive of logo (speech, word). It can be construed here as nominative or as accusative. The verb has to be supplied. If any one ministereth (ei ti diakonei). First-class condition again. See Acts 6:2-4 for the twofold division of service involved here. Which God supplieth (h corhgei o qeo). Ablative case (h) of the relative attracted from the accusative hn, object of corhgei (present active indicative of corhgew, old verb, to supply from corhgo, chorus leader, in N.T. only here and 2 Corinthians 9:10 ). Peter has the compound epicorhgew in 2 Peter 1:5 2 Peter 1:11 . God is the supplier of strength. That God may be glorified (ina doxazhtai o qeo). Purpose clause with ina and the present passive subjunctive of doxazw. See John 15:8 . Whose is (wi estin). "To whom (dative) is," that is to Jesus Christ the immediate antecedent, but in Romans 16:27 ; Jude 1:25 the doxology is to God through Christ. For other doxologies see 1 Peter 5:11 ; 2 Peter 3:18 ; Galatians 1:5 ; Romans 9:5 ; Romans 11:36 ; Philippians 4:20 ; Ephesians 3:21 1 Timothy 1:17 ; 1 Timothy 6:16 ; 2 Timothy 4:18 ; Hebrews 13:21 ; Revelation 1:6 ; Revelation 5:13 ; Revelation 7:12 . The others addressed to Christ are 2 Peter 3:18 ; 2 Timothy 4:18 ; Revelation 1:6 .
