Tongues and Prophecy

In verses 1-19, Paul suggests that intelligible words are superior to unintelligible tongues.

    This makes sense because the purpose of corporate worship is different than private devotion. In private devotion and prayer our spirits connect with God, thus interpretation is not necessary but may be a source of personal encouragement. in the corporate setting though, unless they are interpreted (which essentially becomes a form of prophecy), a message spoken in another language does not instruct or encourage anyone. Therefore, prophecy should be the mode in public worship because then all will understand the message, not just God.
