- And I, brethren, could not speak unto you as unto spiritual, but as unto carnal, as unto babes in Christ.
- I fed you with milk, not with meat;
for ye were not yet able [to bear it]: nay, not even now are ye able;
- for ye are yet carnal: for whereas there is among you jealousy and strife, are ye not carnal, and do ye not walk after the manner of men?
- For when one saith, I am of Paul;
and another, I am of Apollos;
are ye not men?
- What then is Apollos?
and what is Paul?
Ministers through whom ye believed;
and each as the Lord gave to him.
- I planted, Apollos watered;
but God gave the increase.
- So then neither is he that planteth anything, neither he that watereth;
but God that giveth the increase.
- Now he that planteth and he that watereth are one: but each shall receive his own reward according to his own labor.
- For we are God’s fellow-workers: ye are God’s husbandry, God’s building.
- According to the grace of God which was given unto me, as a wise masterbuilder I laid a foundation;
and another buildeth thereon.
But let each man take heed how he buildeth thereon.
- For other foundation can no man lay than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ.
- But if any man buildeth on the foundation gold, silver, costly stones, wood, hay, stubble;
- each man’s work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it is revealed in fire;
and the fire itself shall prove each man’s work of what sort it is.
- If any man’s work shall abide which he built thereon, he shall receive a reward.
- If any man’s work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved;
yet so as through fire.
- Know ye not that ye are a temple of God, and [that] the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?
- If any man destroyeth the temple of God, him shall God destroy;
for the temple of God is holy, and such are ye.
- Let no man deceive himself.
If any man thinketh that he is wise among you in this world, let him become a fool, that he may become wise.
- For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God.
For it is written, He that taketh the wise in their craftiness:
- and again, The Lord knoweth the reasonings of the wise that they are vain.
- Wherefore let no one glory in men.
For all things are yours;
- whether Paul, or Apollos, or Cephas, or the world, or life, or death, or things present, or things to come;
all are yours;
- and ye are Christ’s;
and Christ is God’s.
