1 Corinthians

1 Co 12:1     About then the spirituals, brothers, I want you not to be ignorant.

1 Co 12:2     You know that when gentiles, you were to the voiceless idols as if led, misled.

1 Co 12:3     Therefore I reveal to you that no one by the Spirit of God speaking says: “Accursed Jesus,” and no one can say: “Lord Jesus,” if not by the Holy Spirit.

1 Co 12:4     Divisions then of gifts there are, the same Spirit then;

1 Co 12:5     and divisions of services there are, and the same Lord;

1 Co 12:6     and divisions of activities there are, but the same God working all in all.

1 Co 12:7     To each then the appearance of the Spirit is given for the gathering.

1 Co 12:8     For to one by the Spirit a word of wisdom is given, to another then a word of knowledge according to the same Spirit,

1 Co 12:9     to another faith by the same Spirit, to another then gifts of healing by the one Spirit,

1 Co 12:10  to another then workings of miracles, to another prophecy, to another discernings of spirits, to another kinds of tongues,[1] to another then translation of tongues;

1 Co 12:11  All these then, one and the same Spirit works, distributing to each one’s own just as He wills.

1 Co 12:12  For just as the body is one and has many parts, all then those parts of the body being many, one is the body, thus also the Christ.

1 Co 12:13  For also in one Spirit we all were baptized into one body, whether Jews whether Greeks whether slaves whether free, even all received drink of one Spirit.

1 Co 12:14  For even the body is not one part but many.

1 Co 12:15  If then the foot may say, “Because I am not a hand, I am not from the body.” Even with this, is it not from the body?

1 Co 12:16  If then the ear may say, “Because I am not an eye, I am not from the body.” Even with this, is it not from the body?

1 Co 12:17  If the whole body an eye, where the hearing? If the whole hearing, where the smelling?

1 Co 12:18  Now then God placed the parts, each one of them in the body, just as He willed.

1 Co 12:19  If then all were one part, where the body?

1 Co 12:20  Now then many a part, but one body.

1 Co 12:21  The eye then is not able to say to the hand, “I have no need of you,” or again the head to the feet, “I have no need of you.”

1 Co 12:22  Rather by much more, the part of the body seeming to be weaker is necessary;

1 Co 12:23  and what we suppose to be more dishonorable of the body, to these we bestow greater honor, and our unseemly have greater presentability.

1 Co 12:24  Those then our presentables have no need. Rather, God composed the body giving greater honor to the one lacking,

1 Co 12:25  that there would be no division in the body, rather, the parts would care the same for one another.

1 Co 12:26  Also if one part suffers, he suffers with all the parts, and if a part is glorified, he rejoices with all the parts.

1 Co 12:27  You then are the body of Christ and parts from part.

1 Co 12:28  Also whom God placed in the church, firstly apostles, secondly prophets, thirdly teachers, thereupon miracles, thereupon healing gifts, helps, administrations, kinds of tongues.

1 Co 12:29  Not all apostles? Not all prophets? Not all teachers? Not all miracles?

1 Co 12:30  Not all have healing gifts? Not all speak in tongues? Not all translate?

1 Co 12:31  Strive then for the greater gifts.
And yet down a far better road I point you:

1 Co 13:1     If with the tongues of men I speak and of the angels, yet love have I not, I have become brass sounding or cymbal wailing.

1 Co 13:2     And if I have prophecy, and see the mysteries all and all the knowledge; and if I have all the faith so as to remove mountains, yet love have I not, I am nothing.

1 Co 13:3     And if I donate all my possessions, and if I deliver my body that I may boast, yet love have I not, I profit nothing.

1 Co 13:4     Love is patient, kind is love, is not jealous, is not boastful, is not arrogant,

1 Co 13:5     is not dishonorable, seeks not things of herself, is not provoked, counts not the evil,

1 Co 13:6     rejoices not upon the injustice, rejoices then with the truth;

1 Co 13:7     bears all, believes all, hopes all, endures all.

1 Co 13:8     Love never falls; if then prophecies, they shall cease; if then tongues, they shall stop; if then knowledge, it shall cease.

1 Co 13:9     By part therefore we know and by part we prophesy;

1 Co 13:10  when yet comes the perfect, the by part shall cease.

1 Co 13:11  When I was a child, I spoke as a child, thought as a child, reasoned as a child; when I became a man, I ceased these of the child.

1 Co 13:12  We see therefore now through a mirror by a riddle, then yet face to face; now I know by part, then yet I shall recognize even as also I am recognized.

1 Co 13:13  Now then remain faith, hope, love, these three; greater then of these, love.

1 Co 14:1     Pursue love, covet then the spirituals, more then that you may prophesy.

1 Co 14:2     For one speaking in a tongue speaks not to men but to God, for no one hears. In spirit then he speaks mysteries;

1 Co 14:3     One then prophesying speaks to men, edifying and comforting and encouraging.

1 Co 14:4     One speaking in a tongue edifies himself; One then prophesying edifies the church.

1 Co 14:5     I then want you all to speak in tongues, more then that you prophesy; greater then is one prophesying than one speaking in tongues, unless he translates, that the church may receive edifying.

1 Co 14:6     Now then, brothers, if I come to you speaking in tongues, what will I profit you, unless I speak to you either by revelation or by knowledge or by prophecy, or teaching?

1 Co 14:7     Yet the lifeless giving sound, whether flute whether lyre, if it gives not distinct tones, how will the flute or the lyre be made known?

1 Co 14:8     For also, if an unclear trumpet gives a sound, who will prepare for battle?

1 Co 14:9     Thus also you by the tongue, unless you give a significant word, how will the spoken be known? For you will be speaking into the air.

1 Co 14:10  So many, it might be, kinds of voices are in the world, and none soundless.

1 Co 14:11  If therefore I know not the power of the sound, I will be to the one speaking barbarous, and the one speaking with me barbarous.

1 Co 14:12  Thus also you, since you are zealous of spirituals, to the building of the church, be zealous that you may abound.

1 Co 14:13  Therefore, the one speaking in a tongue, pray that he may interpret.

1 Co 14:14  For if I pray in a tongue, my spirit prays, and my mind is unfruitful.

1 Co 14:15  What therefore is it? I will pray with the spirit and I will pray also with the mind; I will sing with the spirit and I will sing also with the mind.

1 Co 14:16  If when blessing in the spirit, the one filling the place of the unskilled, how will he say the “Amen” upon your thanksgiving, since what you say, he knows not?

1 Co 14:17  For you indeed thank beautifully, but the other is not built.

1 Co 14:18  I thank God, of all of you, I speak more tongues;

1 Co 14:19  but in the church I want five words with my mind to speak, that also others I may instruct, rather than myriads of words in a tongue.

1 Co 14:20  Brothers, become not children in thought, but in vice be infants, in thoughts then become perfect.

1 Co 14:21  In the law, it is written that,
In other tongues and with other lips I will speak to this people
and not even thus will they hear
me, says the Lord.

1 Co 14:22  So, tongues are for a sign, not for those believing, but for those unbelievers, then prophecy not for those unbelievers, but for those believing.

1 Co 14:23  If therefore the whole church gathers upon itself and all speak in tongues, then enter the unskilled and unbelievers, will they not say that you are mad?

1 Co 14:24  If then all prophesy, then enters some unbeliever or unskilled, he is convicted by all, he is discerned by all,

1 Co 14:25  the secrets of his heart become visible, and thus falling upon face, he will worship God, announcing that God really is among you.

1 Co 14:26  What therefore is it, brothers? When you convene, each has a psalm, has a teaching, has a revelation, has a tongue, has an interpretation; let all become for housebuilding.

1 Co 14:27  If also in a tongue someone speaks, by two or at most three; and by part and let one translate;

1 Co 14:28  if then there is no translator, let him be silent in the church, to himself then let him speak, and to God.

1 Co 14:29  Prophets then, two or three, let them speak and the others, let them discern;

1 Co 14:30  if then to another is revealed, sitting, the first, let him be silent.

1 Co 14:31  For you are able by one all to prophesy, that all may learn and all may be encouraged.

1 Co 14:32  Also, spirits of prophets to prophets subordinate,

1 Co 14:33  for He is not the God of disturbance, but of peace. As in all the churches of the saints,

1 Co 14:34  the women in the churches, silence; for it is not permitted for them to speak, but subordinate, even as also the law says.

1 Co 14:35  If then anyone wishes to learn, one’s husband at home let them ask; for shameful it is for a woman to speak in church.

1 Co 14:36  Or from you the word of God went out, or to you alone it reached?

1 Co 14:37  If someone seems a prophet to be, or spiritual, let him recognize what I write to you, that of the Lord it is a command.

1 Co 14:38  If then anyone ignores, he is ignorant.

1 Co 14:39  Therefore, my brothers, be zealous to prophesy and to speak, forbid not in tongues;

1 Co 14:40  all then decently and in order let happen.

1 Co 15:1     I reveal then to you brothers the gospel, which I preached to you, which also you received, in which also you stand,

1 Co 15:2     by which also you are saved, which word I preached to you if you retain it, else if not you believed in vain.

1 Co 15:3     For I delivered to you among firsts, what also I received, that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures,

1 Co 15:4     and that He was buried, and that He was raised the third day according to the Scriptures,

1 Co 15:5     and that He was seen by Kephas then the twelve;

1 Co 15:6     thereupon He was seen by more than five hundred brothers at once, from which the many remain until now, but some slept;

1 Co 15:7     thereupon He was seen by Jacob, then all the apostles;

1 Co 15:8           last then of all as though to one untimely born He was seen also by me.
