- Concernyng spirituall gyftes, brethren, I woulde not haue you ignoraunt.
- Ye knowe yt ye were gentiles, and caryed away vnto dumbe idols, as ye were led.
- Wherfore I declare vnto you, that no man speakyng by the spirite of God, defieth Iesus.
Also no man can say that Iesus is ye Lord, but by the holy ghost.
- There are diuersities of gyftes, but the spirite [is] one.
- And there are differences of administrations, but the Lorde [is] one.
- And there are diuers maners of operations, but God is one, which worketh all in all.
- The manifestation of the spirite, is geuen to euery man, to profite withall.
- For to one is geuen by the spirite, the worde of wisdome, to another the word of knowledge, by the same spirite:
- To another [is geuen] fayth, by the same spirite: to another the giftes of healyng by the same spirite:
- To another, power to do miracles, to another, prophesie, to another [iudgement] to discerne spirites, to another, diuers kyndes of tongues, to another, the interpretation of tongues.
- But these all worketh euen one and the selfe same spirite, deuidyng to euery man a seuerall gyft, as he wyll.
- For as the body is one, & hath many members, and all the members of one body, though they be many, [yet] are [but] one body: euen so is Christe.
- For by one spirite, are we all baptized into one body, whether [we be] Iewes or gentiles, whether [we be] bonde or free: and haue all drunke of one spirite.
- For the body is not one member, but many.
- If the foote woulde say, because I am not the hande, I am not of the body: is it therfore not of the body?
- And yf the eare woulde say, because I am not the eye, I am not of the body: is it therfore not of the body?
- If all the body [were] an eye, where were then the hearyng?
If all [were] hearyng, where were the smellyng?
- But nowe hath God set ye members, euery one seuerally in the body, as it hath pleased hym.
- For yf they were all one member, where were the body?
- Nowe are there many members, yet but one body.
- And the eye can not say vnto ye hande, I haue no neede of thee: Nor, the head agayne to the feete, I haue no neede of you.
- Yea, rather a great deale, those members of the body which seeme to be more feeble, are necessary:
- And vpon those members of the body which we thynke least honest, put we more honestie on.
And our vncomely partes, haue more comelynesse on.
- For our comely members neede it not: But God hath tempered the body together, and hath geuen the more honour to that [part] which lacked:
- Lest there shoulde be any stryfe in the body: but that the members shoulde haue the same care one for another.
- And yf one member suffer, all suffer with it.
If one member be had in honour, all the members reioyce with it.
- Ye are the body of Christe, and members one of another.
- And God hath ordayned some in the Churche, first Apostles, secondarely, prophetes, thirdely teachers, then them that do miracles: after that, the giftes of healyng, helpers, gouernours, diuersitie of tongues.
- Are all, Apostles?
are all, prophetes?
are all, teachers?
- Are all, doers of miracles?
Haue all the giftes of healyng?
Do all speake with tongues?
Do all interprete?
- Couet after the best giftes: And yet shew I vnto you a more excellent way.
