'Gift' in the Bible
So that ye come behind in no gift; waiting for the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ:
Do you not know that your body is the temple (the very sanctuary) of the Holy Spirit Who lives within you, Whom you have received [as a Gift] from God? You are not your own,
For I would that all men were even as I myself. But every man hath his proper gift of God, one after this manner, and another after that.

Therefore let a man who has the gift of tongues pray for the power of interpreting them.
Otherwise, if you are praising God with your spirit, how can someone without the gift say "Amen" to your thanksgiving, since he does not know what you are saying?
This shows that the gift of tongues is intended as a sign not to those who believe but to unbelievers, but prophecy is intended not for unbelievers but for those who believe.
or if there is no interpreter, let the man with the gift be silent in the Church, speaking to himself and to God.
