3:5 What is Apollos, really? Or what is Paul? Servants through whom you came to believe, and each of us in the ministry the Lord gave us. 1 3:6 I planted, 2 Apollos watered, but God caused it to grow.
1 tn Grk “and to each as the Lord gave.”
2 sn The expression I planted is generally taken to mean that Paul founded the church at Corinth. Later Apollos had a significant ministry there (watered). See also v. 10.
