Speaking in Tongues Benefit 1 (Edification) Benefit 2 (Cannot Be Decoded)

1 Corinthians 14:4 (AMP)
“He who speaks in a [strange] tongue edifies and improves himself, but he who prophesies [interpreting the divine will and purpose and teaching with inspiration] edifies and improves the church and promotes growth [in Christian wisdom, piety, holiness, and happiness].”

1 Corinthians 14:2 (AMP)

“For one who speaks in an [unknown] tongue speaks not to men but to God, for no one understands or catches his meaning, because in the [Holy] Spirit he utters secret truths and hidden things [not obvious to the understanding].”
