Along with the gift of speaking in tongues is another spiritual gift—the gift of interpreting tongues. The gift of interpreting tongues is the ability to translate a foreign language into the language of the hearers. The gift of interpreting tongues is a separate gift, but it seems to have been used in conjunction with the gift of speaking in tongues.
First, the interpretation of tongues is not the ability to understand a language that one has already learned. It is rather a supernatural ability to understand someone speaking in a language in which they have never learned. In other words, it is a gift from God. If the gift of speaking in tongues were active in the church today, it would be performed in agreement with Scripture. It would be a real and intelligible language. It would be for the purpose of communicating God’s Word to a person of another language, and it would be done “in a fitting and orderly way”, “for God is not a God of disorder but of peace—as in all the congregations of the Lord’s people” (1 Corinthians 14:33).
