Interpretation of Tongues

In public worship, a person might prophesy in tongues, and another person might interpret the speech for the assembly to hear God’s word. The interpretation of tongues is another charism.

Interpretation of Tongues supplements the Charism of Tongues, because the Holy Spirit enables a person with this charism to interpret tongues into a language known to the assembly.  Interpretation of Tongues is vital in evangelization.

This charism builds the church (1 Corinthians 14:5). We should pray for both charisms.  “One who speaks in a tongue should pray for the power to interpret.” (1 Corinthians 14:13)
