'O God' in the Bible
To God's church at Corinth, to those who are sanctified in Christ Jesus and called as saints, with all those in every place who call on the name of Jesus Christ our Lord-theirs and ours.
I continually give thanks to God on your behalf, for the favour he has bestowed on you thro' Jesus Christ;
I give thanks to God that no one of you did I baptize, except Crispus and Gaius --
For since, according to God's [true] wisdom, the world did not know about Him through its wisdom, God was pleased to save those who believe [in Christ] through the "foolishness" of the message preached.
But you, by your union with Christ Jesus, belong to God; and Christ, by God's will, became not only our Wisdom, but also our Righteousness, Holiness, and Deliverance,
for we belong to God as His fellow-workers; you belong to God as His field to be tilled, as His building to be built.
According to God's grace that was given to me, as a skilled master builder I have laid a foundation, and another builds on it. But each one must be careful how he builds on it,
If anyone does hurt to God's temple or corrupts it [ with false doctrines] or destroys it, God will do hurt to him and bring him to the corruption of death and destroy him. For the temple of God is holy (sacred to Him) and that [temple] you [ the believing church and its individual believers] are.
For this world's wisdom is mere nonsense to God. For the Scripture says, "He who catches the wise with their own cunning,"
and you belong to Christ, and Christ belongs to God.
Now ye are full: now ye are made rich: ye reign as kings without us: and I would to God ye did reign, that we might reign with you.
while you leave to God's judgement those who are outside? Remove the wicked man from among you.
For the unbelieving husband is set apart [i.e., as an acceptable mate, although not yet saved. See verse 16], through his wife [i.e., her Christian commitment is viewed as having a godly effect on the home], and the unbelieving wife is set apart through the brother [i.e., for the same reason]. Otherwise, your children would be [considered] unclean. [Note: "Unclean" suggests they would be viewed as pagans were it not for one parent being a Christian]. But, as it is, they are set apart as acceptable [i.e., to God, because of the influence of the one Christian parent].
Circumcision is nothing, and uncircumcision is nothing: obedience to God's commandments is everything.
Brothers, each one must continue close to God in the very station in which he was called.
so his interests are divided. However, the unmarried woman [Note: Possibly this refers to a widow, divorcee or non-virgin] and the virgin are concerned about the affairs of the Lord [and] how to be dedicated [to God] in both body and spirit. But the married woman is concerned about the affairs of the world [and] how to please her husband.
In this matter, then, of eating food offered to idols, we know that an idol is nothing (has no real existence) and that there is no God but one.
However, food will not bring us closer to God. We are no worse off if we do not eat food that has been offered to an idol, and no better off if we do.
For in the law of Moses has been written, Thou shalt not muzzle the mouth of the ox grinding. Is there not care to God for oxen?
to those without law, as without law (not being without law to God, but within law to Christ), so that I might gain men without law.
For I want you to be [fully] aware, brothers, that our forefathers were all under the cloud, and all of them passed [safely] through the [Red] Sea. [Note: This refers to God guiding the Israelites through the desert during the daytime by a cloud moving along above them . See Ex. 13:21-22].
But I say that the things which the nations sacrifice, they sacrifice to demons and not to God. And I do not desire that you should have fellowship with demons.
You cannot drink [both] the cup of the Lord and the cup of evil spirits [i.e., and still be acceptable to God]. You cannot share in [both] the Lord's table and the table of evil spirits [and still be acceptable to God].
But if I give praise to God for the food which I take, let no man say evil of me for that reason.
Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatever ye do, do all things to God's glory.
Judge for yourselves: Is it proper for a woman to pray to God with her head uncovered?
But if any man seems to be contentious, we have no such custom, neither do God's churches.
So God has appointed some in the church [ for His own use]: first apostles (special messengers); second prophets (inspired preachers and expounders); third teachers; then wonder-workers; then those with ability to heal the sick; helpers; administrators; [speakers in] different (unknown) tongues.
And so faith, hope, love abide [faith -- "conviction and belief respecting man's relation to God and divine things; hope -- "joyful and confident expectation of eternal salvation; love -- "true affection for God and man, growing out of God's love for and in us], these three; but the greatest of these is love.
For he who speaks in a "tongue" speaks not to man but to God, for no one understands him, but in the Spirit he utters secret truths.
For thou indeed givest thanks to God well, but another man is not edified by it.
I give praise to God that I am able to make use of tongues more than you all:
The secrets of his heart are made clear; and he will go down on his face and give worship to God, saying that God is truly among you.
And if there be no interpreter, let him be silent in the church; and let him speak to himself, and to God.
But I am whatever I am because of God's unearned favor, and the favor He showed me was not for nothing [i.e., Paul made the most of his conversion by being extra diligent in his service to God]. But I worked harder than all the other apostles, yet it was not I, but God's favor on me [that accomplished it].
Besides, we are detected bearing false witness to God by affirming of him that he raised Christ ??whom he did not raise, if after all dead men never rise.
Then comes the end, when He delivereth up the Kingdom to God, even His Father; when He shall abolish all rule and all authority and power;
When all things shall be subdued under the Son, then the Son will also be subjected to God who put all things under him, that God may be all in all (ruler over everything).
Get back to your sober senses and avoid sin, for some of you ??and I say this to your shame ??some of you are insensible to God.
But thanks be to God,
but thanks be to God, Who giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ!
Be alert and on your guard; stand firm in your faith ( your conviction respecting man's relationship to God and divine things, keeping the trust and holy fervor born of faith and a part of it). Act like men and be courageous; grow in strength!
Let everything you do be done in love (true love to God and man as inspired by God's love for us).
