- And *I*, brethren, have not been able to speak to you as to spiritual, but as to fleshly;
as to babes in Christ.
- I have given you milk to drink, not meat, for ye have not yet been able, nor indeed are ye yet able;
- for ye are yet carnal.
For whereas [there are] among you emulation and strife, are ye not carnal, and walk according to man?
- For when one says, *I* am of Paul, and another, *I* of Apollos, are ye not men?
- Who then is Apollos, and who Paul?
Ministering servants, through whom ye have believed, and as the Lord has given to each.
- *I* have planted;
but God has given the increase.
- So that neither the planter is anything, nor the waterer;
but God the giver of the increase.
- But the planter and the waterer are one;
but each shall receive his own reward according to his own labour.
- For we are God's fellow-workmen;
ye are God's husbandry, God's building.
- According to the grace of God which has been given to me, as a wise architect, I have laid the foundation, but another builds upon it.
But let each see how he builds upon it.
- For other foundation can no man lay besides that which [is] laid, which is Jesus Christ.
- Now if any one build upon [this] foundation, gold, silver, precious stones, wood, grass, straw,
- the work of each shall be made manifest;
for the day shall declare [it], because it is revealed in fire;
and the fire shall try the work of each what it is.
- If the work of any one which he has built upon [the foundation] shall abide, he shall receive a reward.
- If the work of any one shall be consumed, he shall suffer loss, but *he* shall be saved, but so as through [the] fire.
- Do ye not know that ye are [the] temple of God, and [that] the Spirit of God dwells in you?
- If any one corrupt the temple of God, *him* shall God destroy;
for the temple of God is holy, and such are *ye*.
- Let no one deceive himself: if any one thinks himself to be wise among you in this world, let him become foolish, that he may be wise.
- For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God;
for it is written, He who takes the wise in their craftiness.
- And again, [The] Lord knows the reasonings of the wise that they are vain.
- So that let no one boast 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 coming, all are yours;
- and *ye* [are] Christ's, and Christ [is] God's.
