1 Corinthians 1:1
Paul, called [to be] an apostle of Jesus, the Messiah, through the will of God, and Sosthenes [our] brother,
1 Corinthians 1:2
To the church of God which is at Corinth, to those who are sanctified in the Messiah Jesus, called [to be] saints, with all who in every place call upon the name of Jesus, the Messiah, our master, both theirs and ours.
1 Corinthians 1:3
Grace to you, and peace, from God our Father, and [from] the master Jesus, the Messiah.
1 Corinthians 1:4
I thank my God always on your behalf, for the grace of God which is given to you by Jesus, the Messiah;
1 Corinthians 1:5
That in everything you are enriched by him, in all utterance, and [in] all knowledge;
1 Corinthians 1:6
Even as the testimony of the Messiah was confirmed in you.
1 Corinthians 1:7
So that you come behind in no gift; waiting for the coming of our master Jesus, the Messiah.
1 Corinthians 1:8
Who will also confirm you to the end, [that you may be] blameless in the day of our master Jesus, the Messiah.
1 Corinthians 1:9
God [is] faithful, by whom you were called to the fellowship of His son Jesus, the Messiah, our master.
1 Corinthians 1:10
Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our master Jesus, the Messiah, that you all speak the same thing, and [that] there are no divisions among you; but [that] you are perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.
1 Corinthians 1:11
For it has been declared to me about you, my brethren, by those [who are of the house] of Chloe, that there are contentions among you.
1 Corinthians 1:12
Now this I say, that every one of you says, 'I am of Paul; and I of Apollos; and I of Cephas; and I of the Messiah.'
1 Corinthians 1:13
Is the Messiah divided? Was Paul crucified for you? Or were you baptized in the name of Paul?
1 Corinthians 1:14
I thank God that I did not baptize any of you, but Crispus and Gaius;
1 Corinthians 1:15
Unless any should say that I had baptized in my own name.
1 Corinthians 1:16
And I baptized also the household of Stephanas, besides, I do not know whether I baptized any other.
1 Corinthians 1:17
For the Messiah sent me not to baptize, but to preach the Gospel, not with wisdom of words, unless the cross of the Messiah should be made of none effect.
1 Corinthians 1:20
Where [are] the wise? Where [is] the scribe? Where [is] the disputer of this world? Has God not made the wisdom of this world foolish?
1 Corinthians 1:21
For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom did not know God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save those who believe.
1 Corinthians 1:22
For the Jews require a sign, and the Greeks seek after wisdom.
1 Corinthians 1:23
But we preach the Messiah crucified, to the Jews a stumblingblock, and to the Greeks foolishness;
1 Corinthians 1:24
But to those who are called, both Jews and Greeks, the Messiah the power of God, and the wisdom of God.
1 Corinthians 1:25
Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men.
1 Corinthians 1:26
For you see your calling, brethren, that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, [are called]:
1 Corinthians 1:27
But God has chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God has chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty;
1 Corinthians 1:28
And base things of the world, and things which are despised, God has chosen, [indeed], and things which are not, to bring to nothing things that are.
1 Corinthians 1:29
That no flesh should glory in His presence.
1 Corinthians 2:1
And I, brethren, when I came to you, I did not come with excellency of speech or of wisdom, declaring to you the testimony of God.
1 Corinthians 2:2
For I did not determine to know anything among you, except Jesus, the Messiah, and him crucified.
1 Corinthians 2:3
And I was with you in weakness, and in fear, and in much trembling.
1 Corinthians 2:4
And my speech and my preaching [was] not with enticing words of man's wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power.
1 Corinthians 2:5
That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.
1 Corinthians 2:6
Howbeit we speak wisdom among those who are perfect, yet not the wisdom of this world, nor of the princes of this world, that comes to nothing.
1 Corinthians 2:7
But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, [even] the hidden [wisdom], which God ordained before the world to our glory.
1 Corinthians 2:10
But God has revealed [them] to us by His Spirit, for the Spirit searches all things, indeed, the deep things of God.
1 Corinthians 2:11
For what man knows the things of a man, except the spirit of man which is in him? Even so the things of God knows no man, but the Spirit of God.
1 Corinthians 2:12
Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us by God.
1 Corinthians 2:13
Which things also we speak, not in the words which man's wisdom teaches, but which the Holy Spirit teaches; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.
1 Corinthians 2:14
But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him, neither can he know [them], because they are spiritually discerned.
1 Corinthians 2:15
But He who is spiritual judges all things, yet He Himself is judged by no man.
1 Corinthians 2:16
For who has known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct Him? But we have the mind of the Messiah.
1 Corinthians 3:1
And I, brethren, could not speak to you as to spiritual, but as to carnal, [even] as to babes in the Messiah.
1 Corinthians 3:2
I have fed you with milk, and not with meat, for as of yet you were not able [to bear it], neither yet now are you able.
1 Corinthians 3:3
For you are yet carnal, for whereas [there is] among you envying, and strife, and divisions; are you not carnal, and walk as men?
1 Corinthians 3:4
For while one says, 'I am of Paul;' and another, 'I [am] of Apollos;' are you not carnal?
1 Corinthians 3:5
Who then is Paul, and who [is] Apollos, but ministers by whom you believed, even as the Lord gave to every man?
1 Corinthians 3:6
I have planted, Apollos watered; but God gave the increase.
1 Corinthians 3:7
So then neither is he who plants anything, neither he who waters; but God who gives the increase.
1 Corinthians 3:8
Now he who plants and he who waters are one, and every man will receive his own reward according to his own labor.
1 Corinthians 3:9
For we are laborers together with God, you are God's husbandry, [you are] God's building.
1 Corinthians 3:10
According to the grace of God which is given to me, as a wise masterbuilder, I have laid the foundation, and another builds thereon. But let every man take heed how he builds thereupon.
1 Corinthians 3:11
For no man can lay another foundation than that which is laid, which is Jesus, the Messiah.
1 Corinthians 3:12
Now if any man builds upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble;
1 Corinthians 3:13
Every man's work will be made manifest, for the Day will declare it, because it will be revealed by Fire; and the Fire will try every man's work of what sort it is.
1 Corinthians 3:14
If any man's work abides, which he has built thereupon, he will receive a reward.
1 Corinthians 3:15
If any man's work will be burned, he will suffer loss, but he himself will be saved; yet so as by Fire.
1 Corinthians 3:16
Do you not know that you are the temple of God, and [that] the Spirit of God dwells in you?
1 Corinthians 3:17
If any man defiles the temple of God, him will God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which [temple] you are.
1 Corinthians 3:21
Therefore let no man glory in men. For all things are yours;
1 Corinthians 3:22
Whether Paul, or Apollos, or Cephas, or the world, or life, or death, or things present, or things to come; all are yours;
1 Corinthians 3:23
And you are the Messiah's; and the Messiah [is] God's.
1 Corinthians 4:1
Let a man so account of us, as of the ministers of the Messiah, and stewards of the mysteries of God.
1 Corinthians 4:2
Moreover it is required in stewards, that a man be found faithful.
1 Corinthians 4:3
But with me it is a very small thing that I should be judged of you, or of man's judgment, indeed, I do not judge my own self.
1 Corinthians 4:4
For I know nothing by myself; yet am I not hereby justified, but He who judges me is the Lord.
1 Corinthians 4:5
Therefore judge nothing before the time, until the Lord comes, who both will bring to light the hidden things of darkness, and will make manifest the counsels of the hearts, and then will every man have praise of God.
1 Corinthians 4:6
And these things, brethren, I have in a figure transferred to myself and [to] Apollos for your sakes; that you might learn in us not to think [of men] above that which is written, that not one of you is puffed up against one another.
1 Corinthians 4:7
For who makes you to differ [from another]? And what do you have that you did not receive? Now if you did receive [it], why do you glory, as if you had not received [it]?
1 Corinthians 4:8
Now you are full, now you are rich, you have reigned as kings without us, and I would to God you did reign, that we also might reign with you.
1 Corinthians 4:9
For I think that God has set forth us apostles last, as it were appointed to death, for we are made a spectacle to the world, and to angels, and to men.
1 Corinthians 4:10
We [are] fools for the Messiah's sake, but you [are] wise in the Messiah; we [are] weak, but you [are] strong; you [are] honorable, but we [are] despised.
1 Corinthians 4:11
Even to this present hour we both hunger, and thirst, and are naked, and are buffeted, and have no certain dwellingplace;
1 Corinthians 4:12
And labor, working with our own hands, being reviled, we bless; being persecuted, we suffer it.
1 Corinthians 4:13
Being defamed, we intreat, we are made as the filth of the world, [and are] the offscouring of all things to this day.
1 Corinthians 4:14
I do not write these things to shame you, but as my beloved sons I warn [you].
1 Corinthians 4:15
For though you have ten thousand instructors in the Messiah, yet [you do not have] many fathers, for in the Messiah Jesus I have begotten you through the Gospel.
1 Corinthians 4:16
Therefore I beseech you, be followers of me.
1 Corinthians 4:17
For this cause have I sent to you Timotheus, who is my beloved son, and faithful in the Lord, who will bring you into remembrance of my ways which are in the Messiah, as I teach everywhere in every church.
1 Corinthians 4:18
Now some are puffed up, as though I would not come to you.
1 Corinthians 4:19
But I will come to you shortly, if the Lord wills, and will know, not the speech of those who are puffed up, but the power.
1 Corinthians 4:20
For the kingdom of God [is] not in word, but in power.
1 Corinthians 5:2
And you are puffed up, and have not rather mourned, that he who has done this deed might be taken away from among you.
1 Corinthians 5:3
For I verily, as absent in body, but present in spirit, have judged already, as though I were present, [concerning] him who has so done this deed,
1 Corinthians 5:4
In the name of our master Jesus, the Messiah, when you are gathered together, and my spirit, with the power of our master Jesus, the Messiah,
1 Corinthians 5:5
To deliver such a one to Satan for the destruction of the flesh, that the spirit may be saved in the day of the master Jesus.
1 Corinthians 5:6
Your glorying [is] not good. Do you not know that a little leaven leavens the whole lump?
1 Corinthians 5:7
Purge out therefore the old leaven, that you may be a new lump, as you are unleavened. For even the Messiah our passover is sacrificed for us.
1 Corinthians 5:8
Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, neither with the leaven of malice and wickedness; but with the unleavened [bread] of sincerity and truth.
1 Corinthians 5:9
I wrote to you in an epistle not to accompany with fornicators.
1 Corinthians 5:10
Yet not altogether with the fornicators of this world, or with the covetous, or extortioners, or with idolaters; for then you need to go out of the world.
1 Corinthians 5:11
But now I have written to you not to keep company, if any man who is called a brother is a fornicator, or covetous, or an idolater, or a railer, or a drunkard, or an extortioner; with such a one do not eat together.
1 Corinthians 5:12
For what have I to do to judge them also who are outside? Do you not judge those who are within?
1 Corinthians 5:13
But those who are without God judge. Therefore put away from among yourselves that wicked person.
1 Corinthians 6:1
Do any of you dare, having a matter against another, go to be judged before the unjust, and not before the saints?
1 Corinthians 6:2
Do you not know that the saints will judge the world? And if the world will be judged by you, are you unworthy to judge the smallest matters?
1 Corinthians 6:3
Do you not know that we will judge angels? How much more things that pertain to this life?
1 Corinthians 6:4
If you then have judgments of things pertaining to this life, set them to judge who are least esteemed in the church.
1 Corinthians 6:5
I speak to your shame. Is it so, that there is not a wise man among you? No, not one that will be able to judge between his brethren?
1 Corinthians 6:6
But brother goes to law with brother, and that before the unbelievers.
1 Corinthians 6:7
Now therefore there is utterly a fault among you, because you go to law with one another. Why do you not rather take wrong? Why do you not rather [suffer yourselves to] be defrauded?
1 Corinthians 6:8
No, you do wrong, and defraud, and that [your] brethren.
1 Corinthians 6:9
Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived, neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor sodomites,
1 Corinthians 6:10
Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, will inherit the kingdom of God.
1 Corinthians 6:11
And such were some of you, but you are washed, but you are sanctified, but you are justified in the name of the master Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.
1 Corinthians 6:12
All things are lawful to me, but all things are not expedient, all things are lawful for me, but I will not be brought under the power of any.
1 Corinthians 6:13
Meats for the belly, and the belly for meats, but God will destroy both it and them. Now the body [is] not for fornication, but for the Lord; and the Lord for the body.
1 Corinthians 6:14
And God has both raised up the master, and will also raise us up by His own power.
1 Corinthians 6:17
But he who is joined to the Lord is one spirit.
1 Corinthians 6:18
Flee fornication. Every sin that a man does is without the body; but he who commits fornication sins against his own body.
1 Corinthians 6:19
What? Do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit [which is] in you, which you have of God, and you are not your own?
1 Corinthians 6:20
For you are bought with a price, therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's.
1 Corinthians 7:1
Now concerning the things whereof you wrote to me, [it is] good for a man to not touch a woman.
1 Corinthians 7:2
Nevertheless, [to avoid] fornication, let every man have his own wife, and let every woman have her own husband.
1 Corinthians 7:3
Let the husband render to the wife due benevolence, and likewise also the wife to the husband.
1 Corinthians 7:4
The wife does not have power of her own body, but the husband, and likewise also the husband does not have power of his own body, but the wife.
1 Corinthians 7:5
Do not defraud the other, unless [it is] with consent for a time, that you may give yourselves to fasting and prayer; and come together again, that Satan does not tempt you for your incontinency.
1 Corinthians 7:6
But I speak this by permission, [and] not of commandment.
1 Corinthians 7:7
For I will that all men were even as I myself. But every man has his proper gift of God, one after this manner, and another after that.
1 Corinthians 7:8
I say therefore to the unmarried and widows, 'It is good for them if they abide even as I.'
1 Corinthians 7:9
But if they cannot contain, let them marry, for it is better to marry than to burn.
1 Corinthians 7:10
And to the married I command, [yet] not I, but the Lord, 'Do not let the wife depart from [her] husband.'
1 Corinthians 7:11
But if she departs, let her remain unmarried, or be reconciled to [her] husband, and do not let the husband put away [his] wife.
1 Corinthians 7:12
But to the rest I speak, not the Lord, 'If any brother has a wife who does not believe, and she is pleased to dwell with him, let him not put her away.
1 Corinthians 7:13
And the woman who has a husband who does not believe, and if he is pleased to dwell with her, let her not leave him.'
1 Corinthians 7:14
For the unbelieving husband is sanctified by the wife, and the unbelieving wife is sanctified by the husband, otherwise your children were unclean; but now they are holy.
1 Corinthians 7:15
But if the unbelieving departs, let him depart. A brother or a sister is not under bondage in such [cases], but God has called us to peace.
1 Corinthians 7:16
For what do you know, O wife, whether you will save [your] husband? Or how do you know, O man, whether you will save [your] wife?
1 Corinthians 7:17
But as God has distributed to every man, as the Lord has called everyone, so let him walk. And so I ordain in all churches.
1 Corinthians 7:18
Is any man called being circumcised? Let him not become uncircumcised. Is any called in uncircumcision? Let him not be circumcised.
1 Corinthians 7:19
Circumcision is nothing, and uncircumcision is nothing, but the keeping of the commandments of God.
1 Corinthians 7:20
Let every man abide in the same calling wherein he was called.
1 Corinthians 7:21
Are you called [being] a servant? Do not care for it, but if you may be made free, use [it] rather.
1 Corinthians 7:22
For he who is called in the Lord, [being] a servant, is the Lord's freeman, likewise also he who is called, [being] free, is the Messiah's servant.
1 Corinthians 7:23
You are bought with a price; do not be the servants of men.
1 Corinthians 7:24
Brethren, let every man, wherein he is called, therein abide with God.
1 Corinthians 7:25
Now concerning virgins I have no commandment of the Lord, yet I give my judgment, as one that has obtained mercy of the Lord to be faithful.
1 Corinthians 7:26
I suppose therefore that this is good for the present distress, [I say], that [it is] good for a man to so be.
1 Corinthians 7:27
Are you bound to a wife? Do not seek to be loosed. Are you loosed from a wife? Do not seek a wife.
1 Corinthians 7:28
But if you marry, you have not sinned; and if a virgin marries, she has not sinned. Nevertheless such will have trouble in the flesh, but I spare you.
1 Corinthians 7:29
But this I say, brethren, the time [is] short, it remains, that both they who have wives are as though they had none;
1 Corinthians 7:30
And those who weep, as though they did not weep; and those who rejoice, as though they did not rejoice; and those who buy, as though they did not possess;
1 Corinthians 7:31
And those who use this world, as not abusing [it], for the fashion of this world passes away.
1 Corinthians 7:32
But I would have you without carefulness. He who is unmarried cares for the things that belong to the Lord, how he may please the Lord.
1 Corinthians 7:33
But he who is married cares for the things that are of the world, how he may please [his] wife.
1 Corinthians 7:34
There is difference [also] between a wife and a virgin. The unmarried woman cares for the things of the Lord, that she may be holy both in body and in spirit, but she who is married cares for the things of the world, how she may please [her] husband.
1 Corinthians 7:35
And this I speak for your own profit; not that I may cast a snare upon you, but for that which is comely, and that you may attend upon the Lord without distraction.
1 Corinthians 7:36
But if any man thinks that he behaves himself uncomely toward his virgin, if she passes the flower of [her] age, and need so require, let him do what he wills, he does not sin, let them marry.
1 Corinthians 7:37
Nevertheless he who stands steadfast in his heart, having no necessity, but has power over his own will, and has so decreed in his heart that he will keep his virgin, does well.
1 Corinthians 7:38
So then he who gives [her] in marriage does well; but he who does not give [her] in marriage does better.
1 Corinthians 8:1
Now as touching things offered to idols, we know that we all have knowledge. Knowledge puffs up, but love edifies.
1 Corinthians 8:2
And if any man thinks that he knows anything, he knows nothing yet as he should know.
1 Corinthians 8:3
But if any man loves God, the same is known of Him.
1 Corinthians 8:4
As concerning therefore the eating of those things that are offered in sacrifice to idols, we know that an idol [is] nothing in the world, and that [there is] no other God but one.
1 Corinthians 8:5
For though there are those that are called gods, whether in heaven or in earth, (as there are gods many, and many lords),
1 Corinthians 8:6
But to us [there is but] one God, the Father, of whom [are] all things, and we in Him; and one master Jesus, the Messiah, by whom [are] all things, and we by him.
1 Corinthians 8:7
Howbeit [there is] not in every man that knowledge, for some with conscience of the idol to this hour eat [it] as a thing offered to an idol; and their conscience being weak is defiled.
1 Corinthians 8:8
But meat does not commend us to God, for neither, if we eat, are we the better; neither, if we do not eat, are we the worse.
1 Corinthians 8:9
But take heed unless by any means this liberty of yours becomes a stumbling block to those who are weak.
1 Corinthians 8:10
For if any man sees you, who has knowledge, sit at meat in the idol's temple, will not the conscience of him which is weak be emboldened to eat those things which are offered to idols;
1 Corinthians 8:11
And through your knowledge will the weak brother perish, for whom the Messiah died?
1 Corinthians 8:12
But when you sin so against the brethren, and wound their weak conscience, you sin against the Messiah.
1 Corinthians 8:13
Therefore, if meat makes my brother to offend, I will eat no flesh while the world stands, unless I make my brother to offend.
1 Corinthians 9:1
Am I not an apostle? Am I not free? Have I not seen Jesus, the Messiah, our master? Are you not my work in the master?
1 Corinthians 9:2
If I am not an apostle to others, yet I am doubtless to you, for the seal of my apostleship, you are in the master.
1 Corinthians 9:3
My answer to those who do examine me is this,
1 Corinthians 9:4
Do we not have power to eat and to drink?
1 Corinthians 9:5
Do we not have power to lead about a sister, a wife, as well as other apostles, and [as] the brethren of the master, and Cephas?
1 Corinthians 9:6
Or only I and Barnabas, do we not have power to forbear working?
1 Corinthians 9:7
Who wars at his own purchases? Who plants a vineyard, and does not eat of the fruit thereof? Or who feeds a flock, and does not eat of the milk of the flock?
1 Corinthians 9:10
Or He says [it] altogether for our sakes? For our sakes, no doubt, [this] is written, that he who plows should plow in hope; and that he who threshes in hope should be a partaker of his hope.
1 Corinthians 9:11
If we have sown to you spiritual things, [is it] a great thing if we will reap your carnal things?
1 Corinthians 9:12
If others are partakers of [this] power over you, [are] we not rather? Nevertheless we have not used this power; but suffer all things, unless we should hinder the Gospel of the Messiah.
1 Corinthians 9:13
Do you not know that those who minister about holy things live [of the things] of the temple? And those who wait at the altar are partakers with the altar?
1 Corinthians 9:14
Even so has the master ordained that those who preach the Gospel should live by the Gospel.
1 Corinthians 9:15
But I have used none of these things, neither have I written these things, that it should be so done to me, for [it were] better for me to die, than that any man should make my glorying void.
1 Corinthians 9:16
For though I preach the Gospel, I have nothing to glory of, for necessity is laid upon me; indeed, woe is to me, if I do not preach the Gospel!
1 Corinthians 9:17
For if I do this thing willingly, I have a reward, but if against my will, a dispensation [of the Gospel] is committed to me.
1 Corinthians 9:18
What is my reward then? [Verily] that, when I preach the Gospel, I may make the Gospel of the Messiah without charge, that I do not abuse my power in the Gospel.
1 Corinthians 9:19
For though I am free from all [men], yet I have made myself servant to all, that I might gain the more.
1 Corinthians 9:20
And to the Jews I became as a Jew, that I might gain the Jews; to those who are under the law, as under the law, that I might gain those who are under the law;
1 Corinthians 9:21
To those who are without law, as without law, (being not without law to God, but under the law to the Messiah), that I might gain those who are without law.
1 Corinthians 9:22
To the weak I became as weak, that I might gain the weak, I am made all things to all [men], that I might by all means save some.
1 Corinthians 9:23
And I do this for the Gospel's sake, that I might be a partaker thereof with [you].
1 Corinthians 9:24
Do you not know that those who run in a race, all run, but one receives the prize? So run, that you may obtain.
1 Corinthians 9:25
And every man who strives for the mastery is temperate in all things. Now they [do it] to obtain a corruptible crown; but we an incorruptible.
1 Corinthians 9:26
I therefore so run, not as uncertainly; so I fight, not as one who beats the air.
1 Corinthians 9:27
But I keep under my body, and bring [it] into subjection, unless that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway.
1 Corinthians 10:1
Moreover, brethren, I do not will that you should be ignorant, how all our fathers were under the cloud, and all passed through the sea;
1 Corinthians 10:2
And were all baptized to Moses in the cloud and in the sea;
1 Corinthians 10:3
And all ate the same spiritual meat;
1 Corinthians 10:4
And all drank the same spiritual drink, for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them, and that Rock was the Messiah.
1 Corinthians 10:5
But with many of them God was not well pleased, for they were overthrown in the wilderness.
1 Corinthians 10:10
Neither murmur, as some of them also murmured, and were destroyed by the destroyer.
1 Corinthians 10:11
Now all these things happened to them for examples, and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world have come.
1 Corinthians 10:12
Therefore let him who thinks he stands take heed unless he falls.
1 Corinthians 10:13
No temptation has taken you but that which is common to a man; but God [is] faithful, He will not leave you to be tempted above that which you are able; but with the temptation He will also make a way to escape, that you may be able to bear [it].
1 Corinthians 10:14
Therefore, my dearly beloved, flee from idolatry.
1 Corinthians 10:15
I speak as to wise men; judge what I say.
1 Corinthians 10:16
The cup of blessing which we bless, is it not the communion of the blood of the Messiah? The bread which we break, is it not the communion of the body of the Messiah?
1 Corinthians 10:17
For we [being] many are one bread, [and] one body, for we are all partakers of that one bread.
1 Corinthians 10:18
Behold Israel after the flesh, are those who eat of the sacrifices not partakers of the altar?
1 Corinthians 10:19
What do I say then? That the idol is any thing, or that which is offered in sacrifice to idols is anything?
1 Corinthians 10:20
But I [say], that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice, they sacrifice to devils, and not to God, and I am not willing that you should have fellowship with devils.
1 Corinthians 10:21
You cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils, you cannot be partakers of the Lord's table, and of the table of devils.
1 Corinthians 10:22
Do we provoke the Lord to jealousy? Are we stronger than Him?
1 Corinthians 10:23
All things are lawful for me, but all things are not expedient, all things are lawful for me, but all things do not edify.
1 Corinthians 10:24
Let no man seek his own, but every man another's [wealth].
1 Corinthians 10:25
Whatever is sold in the shambles, eat [that], asking no question for conscience sake.
1 Corinthians 10:26
For the earth [is] the Lord's, and the fullness thereof.
1 Corinthians 10:27
If any of those who believe do not bid you [to a feast], and you are disposed to go; whatever is set before you, eat, asking no question for conscience sake.
1 Corinthians 10:28
But if any man say to you, 'This is offered in sacrifice to idols,' do not eat for his sake who showed it, and for conscience sake, for the earth [is] the Lord's, and the fullness thereof.
1 Corinthians 10:29
Conscience, I say, not your own, but of the other, for why is my liberty judged of another [man's] conscience?
1 Corinthians 10:30
For if I by grace am a partaker, why am I spoken evil of for that which I give thanks?
1 Corinthians 10:31
Whether therefore you eat, or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.
1 Corinthians 10:32
Give no offense, neither to the Jews, nor to the Gentiles, nor to the church of God.
1 Corinthians 10:33
Even as I please all [men] in all [things], not seeking my own profit, but the [profit] of many, that they may be saved.
1 Corinthians 11:1
Be followers of me, even as I [am] also of the Messiah.
1 Corinthians 11:2
Now I praise you, brethren, that you remember me in all things, and keep the ordinances, as I delivered [them] to you.
1 Corinthians 11:3
But I would have you know, that the head of every man is the Messiah; and the head of the woman [is] the man; and the head of the Messiah [is] God.
1 Corinthians 11:4
Every man praying or prophesying, having [his] head covered, dishonors his head.
1 Corinthians 11:5
But every woman who prays or prophesies with [her] head uncovered dishonors her head, for that is one and the same as if she were shaven.
1 Corinthians 11:6
For if the woman is not covered, let her also be shaved, but if it is a shame for a woman to be sheared or shaven, let her be covered.
1 Corinthians 11:7
For indeed a man does not need to cover [his] head, forasmuch as he is the image and glory of God, but the woman is the glory of the man.
1 Corinthians 11:8
For the man is not of the woman; but the woman of the man.
1 Corinthians 11:9
Neither was the man created for the woman; but the woman for the man.
1 Corinthians 11:10
For this cause the woman should have power on [her] head because of the messengers.
1 Corinthians 11:11
Nevertheless neither is the man without the woman, neither the woman without the man, in the Lord.
1 Corinthians 11:12
For as the woman [is] of the man, even so [is] the man also by the woman; but all things of God.
1 Corinthians 11:13
Judge in yourselves, is it suitable that a woman prays to God uncovered?
1 Corinthians 11:14
Does even nature itself not teach you, that, if a man has long hair, it is a shame to him?
1 Corinthians 11:15
But if a woman has long hair, it is a glory to her, for [her] hair is given to her for a covering.
1 Corinthians 11:16
But if any man seems to be contentious, we have no such custom, neither the churches of God.
1 Corinthians 11:17
Now in this that I declare [to you] I do not praise [you], that you come together not for the better, but for the worse.
1 Corinthians 11:18
For first of all, when you come together in the church, I hear that there are divisions among you; and I partly believe it.
1 Corinthians 11:19
For there must also be heresies among you, that those who are approved may be made manifest among you.
1 Corinthians 11:20
When you come together therefore into one place, [this] is not to eat the master's supper.
1 Corinthians 11:21
For in eating, everyone takes before [another] his own supper, and one is hungry, and another is drunk.
1 Corinthians 11:22
What? Do you not have houses to eat and to drink in? Or do you despise the church of God, and shame those who have nothing? What will I say to you? Will I praise you in this? I do not praise [you].
1 Corinthians 11:23
For I have received of the master that which I also delivered to you, that the master Jesus the [same] night in which he was betrayed took bread.
1 Corinthians 11:24
And when he had given thanks, he broke [it], and said, 'Take, eat, this is my body, which is broken for you, do this in remembrance of me.'
1 Corinthians 11:25
After the same manner [he took] the cup also, when he had supped, saying, 'This cup is the new testament in my blood, do this, as often as you drink [it], in remembrance of me.'
1 Corinthians 11:26
For as often as you eat this bread, and drink this cup, you do show the master's death till he comes.
1 Corinthians 11:27
Therefore whoever will eat this bread, and drink [this] cup of the master, unworthily, will be guilty of the body and blood of the master.
1 Corinthians 11:28
But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of [that] bread, and drink of [that] cup.
1 Corinthians 11:29
For he who eats and drinks unworthily, eats and drinks damnation to himself, not discerning the master's body.
1 Corinthians 11:30
For this cause many [are] weak and sick among you, and many sleep.
1 Corinthians 11:31
For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged.
1 Corinthians 11:32
But when we are judged, we are chastened by the master, that we should not be condemned with the world.
1 Corinthians 11:33
Therefore, my brethren, when you come together to eat, wait for one another.
1 Corinthians 11:34
And if any may hunger, let him eat at home; that you do not come together to condemnation. And the rest will I set in order when I come.
1 Corinthians 12:1
Now concerning spiritual [gifts], brethren, I would not have you [be] ignorant.
1 Corinthians 12:2
You know that you were Gentiles, carried away to these dumb idols, even as you were led.
1 Corinthians 12:3
Therefore I give you to understand, that no man speaking by the Spirit of God calls Jesus accursed, and [that] no man can say that Jesus is the master, but by the Holy Spirit.
1 Corinthians 12:4
Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit.
1 Corinthians 12:5
And there are differences of administrations, but the same master.
1 Corinthians 12:6
And there are diversities of operations, but it is the same God which works all in all.
1 Corinthians 12:7
But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit with.
1 Corinthians 12:8
For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit;
1 Corinthians 12:9
To another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit;
1 Corinthians 12:10
To another the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to another [diverse] kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues.
1 Corinthians 12:11
But that one and the selfsame Spirit works all these, dividing to every man severally as he will.
1 Corinthians 12:12
For as the body is one, and has many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body, so also [is] the Messiah.
1 Corinthians 12:13
For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether [we are] Jews or Gentiles, whether [we are] bond or free; and have all been made to drink into one Spirit.
1 Corinthians 12:14
For the body is not one member, but many.
1 Corinthians 12:15
If the foot will say, 'Because I am not the hand, I am not of the body;' is it therefore not of the body?
1 Corinthians 12:16
And if the ear will say, 'Because I am not the eye, I am not of the body;' is it therefore not of the body?
1 Corinthians 12:17
If the whole body [were] an eye, where [was] the hearing? If the whole [were] hearing, where [was] the smelling?
1 Corinthians 12:18
But now God has set the members, every one of them, in the body, as it has pleased Him.
1 Corinthians 12:19
And if they were all one member, where [was] the body?
1 Corinthians 12:20
But now [they are] many members, yet one body.
1 Corinthians 12:21
And the eye cannot say to the hand, 'I have no need of you,' nor again the head to the feet, 'I have no need of you.'
1 Corinthians 12:22
No, much more those members of the body, which seem to be more feeble, are necessary.
1 Corinthians 12:23
And those [members] of the body, which we think to be less honorable, upon these we bestow more abundant honor; and our indecent [parts] have more excessiveness.
1 Corinthians 12:24
For our well formed [parts] have no need, but God has tempered the body together, having given more abundant honor to that [part] which lacked.
1 Corinthians 12:25
That there should be no schism in the body; but [that] the members should have the same care one for another.
1 Corinthians 12:26
And whether one member suffers, all the members suffer with it; or one member is honored, all the members rejoice with it.
1 Corinthians 12:27
Now you are the body of the Messiah, and members in particular.
1 Corinthians 12:28
And God has set some in the church, first apostles, secondarily prophets, thirdly teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healing, helps, governments, diversities of tongues.
1 Corinthians 12:29
[Are] all apostles? [Are] all prophets? [Are] all teachers? [Are] all workers of miracles?
1 Corinthians 12:30
Do all have the gifts of healing? Do all speak with tongues? Do all interpret?
1 Corinthians 12:31
But covet earnestly the best gifts, and yet I show to you a more excellent way.
1 Corinthians 13:1
Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and do not have love, I have become [as] sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.
1 Corinthians 13:2
And though I have [the gift of] prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and do not have love, I am nothing.
1 Corinthians 13:3
And though I bestow all my goods to feed [the poor], and though I give my body to be burned, and do not have love, it profits me nothing.
1 Corinthians 13:4
Love is patient, [and] is kind; love does not envy; love does not boast itself, is not puffed up,
1 Corinthians 13:5
Does not behave itself unseemly, does not seek her own, is not easily provoked, thinks no evil;
1 Corinthians 13:6
Does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth;
1 Corinthians 13:7
Bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
1 Corinthians 13:8
Love never fails, but whether [there are] prophecies, they will fail; whether [there are] tongues, they will cease; whether [there is] knowledge, it will vanish away.
1 Corinthians 13:9
For we know in part, and we prophesy in part.
1 Corinthians 13:10
But when that which is perfect has come, then that which is in part will be done away.
1 Corinthians 13:11
When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child, but when I became a man, I put away childish things.
1 Corinthians 13:12
For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face, now I know in part; but then I will know even as I am also known.
1 Corinthians 13:13
And now abides faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these [is] love.
1 Corinthians 14:1
Follow after love, and desire spiritual [gifts], but rather that you may prophesy.
1 Corinthians 14:2
For he who speaks in an [unknown] tongue does not speak to men, but to God, for no man understands [him]; howbeit he speaks mysteries in the spirit.
1 Corinthians 14:3
But he who prophesies, speaks to men [to] edification, and exhortation, and comfort.
1 Corinthians 14:4
He who speaks in an [unknown] tongue edifies himself; but he who prophesies edifies the church.
1 Corinthians 14:5
I am willing that you all spoke with tongues, but rather that you prophesied, for greater [is] he who prophesies than he who speaks with tongues, except he interpret, that the church may receive edifying.
1 Corinthians 14:6
Now, brethren, if I come to you speaking with tongues, what will I profit you, except I will speak to you either by revelation, or by knowledge, or by prophesying, or by doctrine?
1 Corinthians 14:7
And even things without life giving sound, whether pipe or harp, except they give a distinction in the sounds, how will it be known what is piped or harped?
1 Corinthians 14:8
For if the trumpet gives an uncertain sound, who will prepare himself to the battle?
1 Corinthians 14:9
So likewise you, except you utter easy words by the tongue to be understood, how will it be known what is spoken? For you will speak into the air.
1 Corinthians 14:10
There are, it may be, so many kinds of voices in the world, and none of them [is] without signification.
1 Corinthians 14:11
Therefore if I do not know the meaning of the voice, I will be a barbarian to him who speaks, and he who speaks [will be] a barbarian to me.
1 Corinthians 14:12
Even so you, forasmuch as you are zealous of spiritual [gifts], seek that you may excel to the edifying of the church.
1 Corinthians 14:13
Therefore let him who speaks in an [unknown] tongue pray that he may interpret.
1 Corinthians 14:14
For if I pray in an [unknown] tongue, my spirit prays, but my understanding is unfruitful.
1 Corinthians 14:15
What is it then? I will pray with the spirit, and I will pray with the understanding also, I will sing with the spirit, and I will sing with the understanding also.
1 Corinthians 14:16
Otherwise when you will bless with the spirit, how will he who occupies the room of the unlearned say Amen at your giving of thanks, seeing he does not understand what you say?
1 Corinthians 14:17
For you verily give thanks well, but the other is not edified.
1 Corinthians 14:18
I thank my God, I speak with tongues more than you all.
1 Corinthians 14:19
Yet in the church I had rather spoken five words with my understanding, that [by my voice] I might teach others also, than ten thousand words in an [unknown] tongue.
1 Corinthians 14:22
Therefore tongues are for a sign, not to those who believe, but to those who do not believe, but prophesying [serves] not for those who do not believe, but for those who believe.
1 Corinthians 14:23
If therefore the whole church has come together into one place, and all speak with tongues, and there come in [those who are] unlearned, or unbelievers, will they not say that you are mad?
1 Corinthians 14:24
But if all prophesy, and there comes in one who does not believe, or [one] unlearned, he is convinced of all, he is judged by all.
1 Corinthians 14:25
And thus are the secrets of his heart made manifest; and so falling down on [his] face he will worship God, and report that God is in you of a truth.
1 Corinthians 14:26
How is it then, brethren? When you come together, every one of you has a Psalm, has a doctrine, has a tongue, has a revelation, has an interpretation. Let all things be done to edifying.
1 Corinthians 14:27
If any man speaks in an [unknown] tongue, [let it be] by two, or at the most [by] three, and [that] by course; and let one interpret.
1 Corinthians 14:28
But if there is no interpreter, let him keep silent in the church; and let him speak to himself, and to God.
1 Corinthians 14:29
Let the prophets speak two or three, and let the other judge.
1 Corinthians 14:30
If [anything] is revealed to another who sits by, let the first hold his peace.
1 Corinthians 14:31
For you may all prophesy one by one, that all may learn, and all may be comforted.
1 Corinthians 14:32
And the spirits of the prophets are subject to the prophets.
1 Corinthians 14:33
For God is not [the author] of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints.
1 Corinthians 14:34
Let your women keep silent in the churches, for it is not permitted to them to speak; but [they are commanded] to be under obedience, as the law also says.
1 Corinthians 14:35
And if they will learn anything, let them ask their husbands at home, for it is a shame for women to speak in the church.
1 Corinthians 14:36
What? Did the word of God come out from you? Or did it come to you only?
1 Corinthians 14:37
If any man thinks himself to be a prophet, or spiritual, let him acknowledge that the things that I write to you are the commandments of the Lord.
1 Corinthians 14:38
But if any man is ignorant, let him be ignorant.
1 Corinthians 14:39
Therefore, brethren, covet to prophesy, and do not forbid to speak with tongues.
1 Corinthians 14:40
Let all things be done decently and in order.
1 Corinthians 15:1
Moreover, brethren, I declare to you the Gospel which I preached to you, which you have also received, and wherein you stand;
1 Corinthians 15:2
By which you are also saved, if you keep in memory what I preached to you, unless you have believed in vain.
1 Corinthians 15:3
For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received, how the Messiah died for our sins according to the Scriptures;
1 Corinthians 15:4
And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the Scriptures.
1 Corinthians 15:5
And that he was seen by Cephas, then by the twelve.
1 Corinthians 15:6
After that, he was seen by above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain at this present, but some have fallen asleep.
1 Corinthians 15:7
After that, he was seen by James; then by all the apostles.
1 Corinthians 15:8
And last of all he was seen by me also, as of one born out of due time.
1 Corinthians 15:9
For I am the least of the apostles, who am not enough to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the church of God.
1 Corinthians 15:10
But by the grace of God I am what I am, and His grace which [was bestowed] upon me was not in vain; but I labored more abundantly than them all, yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me.
1 Corinthians 15:11
Therefore whether [it was] I or they, so we preach, and so you believed.
1 Corinthians 15:12
Now if the Messiah is preached that he rose from the dead, how do some among you say that there is no Resurrection of the dead?
1 Corinthians 15:13
But if there is no Resurrection of the dead, then has the Messiah not risen.
1 Corinthians 15:14
And if the Messiah has not risen, then [is] our preaching vain, and your faith [is] also vain.
1 Corinthians 15:15
Indeed, and we are found false witnesses of God; because we have testified of God that He raised up the Messiah, whom He did not raise up, if it so is that the dead do not rise.
1 Corinthians 15:16
For if the dead do not rise, then was the Messiah not raised?
1 Corinthians 15:17
And if the Messiah was not raised, your faith [is] vain; you are still in your sins.
1 Corinthians 15:18
Then those also who have fallen asleep in the Messiah are perished.
1 Corinthians 15:19
If in this life we only have hope in the Messiah, we are of all most miserable men.
1 Corinthians 15:20
But now the Messiah has risen from the dead, [and] become the firstfruits of those who slept.
1 Corinthians 15:21
For since by man [came] death, by man also [came] the Resurrection of the dead.
1 Corinthians 15:22
For as in Adam all die, even so in the Messiah all will be made alive.
1 Corinthians 15:23
But every man in his own order, the Messiah the firstfruits; afterward those who are the Messiah's at his coming.
1 Corinthians 15:24
Then [comes] the End, when he will have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when He will have put down all rule and all authority and power.
1 Corinthians 15:25
For He must reign, till He has put all enemies under His feet.
1 Corinthians 15:27
For He has submitted all things under His feet. But when He says all things are submitted under [Him, it is] manifest that He is excepted, who submitted all things under Him.
1 Corinthians 15:29
Else what will they do, who are baptized for the dead, if the dead do not rise at all? Why are they then baptized for the dead?
1 Corinthians 15:30
And why do we stand in jeopardy every hour?
1 Corinthians 15:31
I protest by your rejoicing which I have in the Messiah, Jesus our master, I die daily.
1 Corinthians 15:32
If after the manner of men I have fought with beasts at Ephesus, what does it advantage me, if the dead do not rise? Let us eat and drink; for tomorrow we die.
1 Corinthians 15:33
Be not deceived, evil communications corrupt good manners.
1 Corinthians 15:34
Awake to righteousness, and do not sin; for some do not have the knowledge of God, I speak [this] to your shame.
1 Corinthians 15:35
But some [man] will say, 'How are the dead raised up? And with what body do they come?'
1 Corinthians 15:36
[You] fool, that which you sow is not made alive, unless it dies.
1 Corinthians 15:37
And that which you sow, you do not sow that the body will become, but bare grain, it may chance of wheat, or of some other [grain]:
1 Corinthians 15:38
But God gives it a body as it has pleased Him, and to every seed his own body.
1 Corinthians 15:39
All flesh [is] not the same flesh, but [there is] one [kind of] flesh of men, another flesh of beasts, another of fish, [and] another of birds.
1 Corinthians 15:40
[There are] also celestial bodies, and terrestrial bodies, but the glory of the celestial [is] one, and the [glory] of the terrestrial [is] another.
1 Corinthians 15:41
[There is] one glory of the sun, and another glory of the moon, and another glory of the stars, for [one] star differs from [another] star in glory.
1 Corinthians 15:42
So also [is] the Resurrection of the dead. It is sown in corruption; it is raised in incorruption.
1 Corinthians 15:43
It is sown in dishonor; it is raised in glory, it is sown in weakness; it is raised in power.
1 Corinthians 15:44
It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body.
1 Corinthians 15:45
And so it is written, 'The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam [was made] a living spirit.'
1 Corinthians 15:46
Howbeit that which is spiritual [was] not first, but that which is natural; and afterward that which is spiritual.
1 Corinthians 15:47
The first man [is] of the earth, earthy, the second man [is] the master from heaven.
1 Corinthians 15:48
As [is] the earthy, such [are] those who are also earthy, and as [is] the heavenly, such [are] those who are also heavenly.
1 Corinthians 15:49
And as we have borne the image of the earthy, we will also bear the image of the heavenly.
1 Corinthians 15:50
Now I say this, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither does corruption inherit incorruption.
1 Corinthians 15:55
O death, where [is] your sting? O grave, where [is] your victory?
1 Corinthians 15:56
The sting of death [is] sin; and the strength of sin [is] the law.
1 Corinthians 15:57
But thanks [is] to God, who gives us the victory through our master Jesus, the Messiah.
1 Corinthians 15:58
Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, unmovable, always abounding in the work of the master, forasmuch as you know that your labor is not in vain in the master.
1 Corinthians 16:1
Now concerning the collection for the saints, as I have given order to the churches of Galatia, even so do you.
1 Corinthians 16:2
Upon the first [day] of the week let every one of you lay by him in store, as [God] has prospered him, that there are no gatherings when I come.
1 Corinthians 16:3
And when I come, whomever you will approve by [your] letters, them I will send to bring your liberality to Jerusalem.
1 Corinthians 16:4
And if it is worthy that I also go, they will go with me.
1 Corinthians 16:5
Now I will come to you, when I will pass through Macedonia, for I do pass through Macedonia.
1 Corinthians 16:6
And it may be that I will abide, indeed, and winter with you, that you may bring me on my journey wherever I go.
1 Corinthians 16:7
For I will not see you now by the way; but I trust to wait a while with you, if the Lord permits.
1 Corinthians 16:8
But I will wait at Ephesus until Pentecost.
1 Corinthians 16:9
For a great door and effectual is opened to me, and [there are] many adversaries.
1 Corinthians 16:10
Now if Timotheus comes, see that he may be with you without fear, for he works the work of the Lord, as I also [do].
1 Corinthians 16:11
Let no man therefore despise him, but conduct him forth in peace, that he may come to me, for I look for him with the brethren.
1 Corinthians 16:12
As touching [our] brother Apollos, I greatly desired him to come to you with the brethren, but his will was not at all to come at this time; but he will come when he will have convenient time.
1 Corinthians 16:13
Watch, stand fast in the faith, be manly, be strong.
1 Corinthians 16:14
Let all your things be done with love.
1 Corinthians 16:15
I beseech you, brethren, you know the house of Stephanas, that it is the firstfruits of Achaia, and [that] they have addicted themselves to the ministry of the saints,
1 Corinthians 16:16
That you submit yourselves to such, and to everyone who helps with [us], and labors.
1 Corinthians 16:17
I am glad at the coming of Stephanas and Fortunatus and Achaicus, for that which was lacking on your part they have supplied.
1 Corinthians 16:18
For they have refreshed my spirit and yours, therefore acknowledge those that are such.
1 Corinthians 16:19
The churches of Asia salute you. Aquila and Priscilla salute you much in the Lord, with the church that is in their house.
1 Corinthians 16:20
All the brethren greet you. Greet one another with a holy kiss.
1 Corinthians 16:21
The salutation of [me] Paul with my own hand.
1 Corinthians 16:22
If any man does not love the master Jesus, the Messiah, let him be cursed in Judgement.
1 Corinthians 16:23
The grace of our master Jesus, the Messiah, [is] with you.
1 Corinthians 16:24
My love [is] with you all in the Messiah Jesus. Amen. <<[The first [epistle] to the Corinthians was written from Philippi by Stephanas and Fortunatus and Achaicus and Timotheus.]>>
