In Paul's arrangement of the spiritual gifts in Corinthians, the last is "interpretation of tongues". This means that the ability to interpret what is being spoken in tongues is considered the least important of the spiritual gifts. Speaking in tongues is seen as a more impressive gift, but without interpretation, it is meaningless to the rest of the congregation. Therefore, Paul emphasizes the importance of interpretation to edify the church.
