- But concerning spiritual [manifestations], brethren, I do not wish you to be ignorant.
- Ye know that when ye were [of the] nations [ye were] led away to dumb idols, in whatever way ye might be led.
- I give you therefore to know, that no one, speaking in [the power of the] Spirit of God, says, Curse [on] Jesus;
and no one can say, Lord Jesus, unless in [the power of the] Holy Spirit.
- But there are distinctions of gifts, but the same Spirit;
- and there are distinctions of services, and the same Lord;
- and there are distinctions of operations, but the same God who operates all things in all.
- But to each the manifestation of the Spirit is given for profit.
- For to one, by the Spirit, is given [the] word of wisdom;
and to another [the] word of knowledge, according to the same Spirit;
- and to a different one faith, in [the power of] the same Spirit;
and to another gifts of healing in [the power of] the same Spirit;
- and to another operations of miracles;
and to another prophecy;
and to another discerning of spirits;
and to a different one kinds of tongues;
and to another interpretation of tongues.
- But all these things operates the one and the same Spirit, dividing to each in particular according as he pleases.
- For even as the body is one and has many members, but all the members of the body, being many, are one body, so also [is] the Christ.
- For also in [the power of] one Spirit *we* have all been baptised into one body, whether Jews or Greeks, whether bondmen or free, and have all been given to drink of one Spirit.
- For also the body is not one member but many.
- If the foot say, Because I am not a hand I am not of the body, is it on account of this not indeed of the body?
- And if the ear say, Because I am not an eye I am not of the body, is it on account of this not indeed of the body?
- If the whole body [were] an eye, where the hearing?
if all hearing, where the smelling?
- But now God has set the members, each one of them in the body, according as it has pleased [him].
- But if all were one member, where the body?
- But now the members [are] many, and the body one.
- The eye cannot say to the hand, I have not need of thee;
or again, the head to the feet, I have not need of you.
- But much rather, the members of the body which seem to be weaker are necessary;
- and those [parts] of the body which we esteem to be the more void of honour, these we clothe with more abundant honour;
and our uncomely [parts] have more abundant comeliness;
- but our comely [parts] have not need.
But God has tempered the body together, having given more abundant honour to [the part] that lacked;
- that there might be no division in the body, but that the members might have the same concern one for another.
- And if one member suffer, all the members suffer with [it];
and if one member be glorified, all the members rejoice with [it].
- Now *ye* are Christ's body, and members in particular.
- And God has set certain in the assembly: first, apostles;
then miraculous powers;
then gifts of healings;
kinds of tongues.
- [Are] all apostles?
[are] all prophets?
[are] all teachers?
[are] all [in possession of] miraculous powers?
- have all gifts of healings?
do all speak with tongues?
do all interpret?
- But desire earnestly the greater gifts, and yet shew I unto you a way of more surpassing excellence.
