New Defender's Study Bible Notes

14:14 spirit prayeth. A person with the gift of languages may edify himself (I Corinthians 14:4) by praying in that language, but the edification will be only emotional, since he cannot understand it. It may bring a blessing of sorts to the individual, assuming he does it when by himself, but, according to Paul, it should not be done in the church unless either he or another translator is there to explain what was said (I Corinthians 14:28).
