Hitch In Tongue Speaking

Could someone please explain or elaborate on 1 corinthians 14:10 and try to keep it in context so that it reads fluently? This one part seems to throw a hitch in things if you speak in tongues.

1 Cor14:10 There are, it may be, so many kinds of voices in the world, and none of them is without signification.

In relation to speaking in tongues; it is saying that even though you do not understand it, it has significance.
---ShawnM.T on 6/9/08

We are to look to the Holy Spirit to reveal all that we do not understand. All things spoken are significant, whether you understand it or not. And it should be told, that just because what is being spoken has significance does not make it Gods will. It may be something that you are to rebuke in the name of Christ; and the only reason it was spoken was so you could speak the word of God and glorify his name.

"There are, it may be, so many kinds of voices (languages, speeches) in the world, and some of them is without signification (meaning)" - ! Corinthians 14:10
This verse is simple enough and self expanatory and reads fluently already. Paul advices if you speak in tongue you must have interpretation. If none, don't say or utter it. Speaking in tongue is to edify someone, if there is no interpretion how can that person be edified?

it all goes back to the tower of Babel, God was so angry that he confused the tongues. Jesus Christ was born into the world. the Holy Ghost descended from Heaven that introduced spiritual gifts into the world from God including the gift of tongues. people were able to understand what others were saying. new languages were not created, they were interpreted through the power of God, everyone could now be understood. we now learn to speak new languages easily.

Because speaking in tongues is of the Holy Spirit, we need to be extremely careful what we say in regards to this. Blasphemy of the Holy Spirit happens when one attributes to the devil that which is of God. Careful.

Jana, i would have to disagree w/ you...speaking in tongues is not of satan, but people can definately not use it rightly....I strongly believe that when you speak in tongues out in the open at church, there should/ must be an interprator...
if your speaking in tongues by yourself i dont care what your saying if your praying to God whats it matter what your speaking, as long as its to God, God will understand even if its gibberish to people

God Almighty has given man many languages, tongues that are understood languages by each race. There is no such unknownlanguage/uniteligible language that man on earth ever understand. God gave us all languages we can communicate with one another.Speaking in tongues means speaking in known languages. Not mumbo jumbo. Thats of the enemy.

In vs 9-12 Paul is comparing natural voices of people to those "tongues" spoken by spiritual people. If you speak a language people around you don't understand, they may see you as barbarian (or foreign) & disregard you as babbling. Yet if you have an interpreter it makes you understandable & having substance. Just as previous & later verses (as well as other places in the Bible)say, God has an order. If we go forward outside His order we have chaos. Tongues in public need interpretation.

I'm not sure what kind of hitch there is. If your looking for one maybe you'll find it. All I see there and in the following verses is that Paul used tongues in all kinds of circumstances and that they are a marvelous gift used to edify the Church if used properly.

Shawn was exactly right when he said,"it is saying that even though you do not understand it, it has significance."
If we always knew what we are praying when we pray in the spirit we might hinder it by doubt because it may not make sense to your mind.
---Rickey on 1/17/07

If you read V 13, it says to pray for an interpretation if you don't know what you are saying.
