'People' in the Bible

To the church (assembly) of God which is in Corinth, to those consecrated and purified and made holy in Christ Jesus, [who are] selected and called to be saints (God's people), together with all those who in any place call upon and give honor to the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, both their Lord and ours:

For I have been informed concerning you, my brethren, by Chloe's people, that there are quarrels among you.

for fear people should say that you were baptized to be my adherents.

However, when we are among mature people, we do speak a message of wisdom, but not the wisdom of this world or of the rulers of this world, who are passing off the scene.

Brothers, I was not able to speak to you as spiritual people but as people of the flesh, as babies in Christ.

For it seems to me that God has put us apostles on display in last place, like men condemned to death. We have become a spectacle for the world, for angels, and for people to stare at.

But I will come to you soon if it's the Lord's will. Then I'll discover not only what these arrogant people are saying but also what power they have,

by no means referring to this world's immoral people, or to the greedy and swindlers, or to idolaters; otherwise you would have to leave the world.

Does any of you dare, when he has a matter of complaint against another [brother], to go to law before unrighteous men [men neither upright nor right with God, laying it before them] instead of before the saints (the people of God)?

Do you not know that God's people will sit in judgement upon the world? And if you are the court before which the world is to be judged, are you unfit to deal with these petty matters?

So if you have cases dealing with this life, why do you appoint as judges people who have no standing in the church?

thieves, greedy people, drunkards, revilers, or swindlers will inherit God's kingdom.

I wish that all people were just like me. But each has his own gift from God, one this and another that.

But to the unmarried people and to the widows, I declare that it is well (good, advantageous, expedient, and wholesome) for them to remain [single] even as I do.

For the unbelieving husband is set apart (separated, withdrawn from heathen contamination, and affiliated with the Christian people) by union with his consecrated (set-apart) wife, and the unbelieving wife is set apart and separated through union with her consecrated husband. Otherwise your children would be unclean (unblessed heathen, outside the Christian covenant), but as it is they are prepared for God [pure and clean].

With regard to the question about people who have never married, I have no command from the Lord, but I give my opinion as one shown mercy by the Lord to be trustworthy.

However, if you do get married, you have not sinned, and if a virgin marries, she has not sinned. But such people will have trouble in this life, and I am trying to spare you.

Now about food offered to idols: of course we know that all of us possess knowledge [concerning these matters. Yet mere] knowledge causes people to be puffed up (to bear themselves loftily and be proud), but love (affection and goodwill and benevolence) edifies and builds up and encourages one to grow [to his full stature].

But not everyone has this knowledge. Some people are so accustomed to idolatry that when they eat food that has been offered to an idol, their conscience becomes contaminated because it is weak.

If I am not an apostle to other people, surely I am one to you, for you are the evidence of my apostolic authority from the Lord.

To the weak I became weak, in order to win the weak. I have become all things to all people, so that I may by all means save some.

But God wasn't pleased with most of those people, and so they were struck down in the wilderness.

Now these [things] happened to those [people] as an example, but are written for our instruction, on whom the ends of the ages have come.

I am speaking as to wise people. Judge for yourselves what I say.

Look at the people of Israel. Are not those who eat the sacrifices partners in the altar?

just as I also try to please all people in all things, not seeking my own profit, but the profit of many, that they may be saved.

and there are varieties of activities, but the same God, who works all [things] in all [people].

For the person who speaks in a foreign language is not actually speaking to people but to God. Indeed, no one understands him, because he is talking about secrets by the Spirit.

And so with you; if with the living voice you fail to utter intelligible words, how will people know what you are saying? You will be talking to the winds.

but in the church I prefer to speak five words with my mind, in order that I may instruct other [people], than ten thousand words in a tongue.

In the law it is written, With men of other tongues and other lips will I speak unto this people; and yet for all that will they not hear me, saith the Lord.

Therefore if the whole church assembles together, and all are speaking in [other] languages, and people who are uninformed or unbelievers come in, will they not say that you are out of your minds?

For He [Who is the source of their prophesying] is not a God of confusion and disorder but of peace and order. As [is the practice] in all the churches of the saints (God's people),

Otherwise what will they do who are being baptized for the dead? If the dead are not raised at all, then why are people baptized for them?

Become right-minded and stop sinning, because some people are ignorant about God. I say this to your shame.

All flesh is not the same: People have one flesh, animals have another, birds and fish another.

Now concerning the money contributed for [the relief of] the saints (God's people): you are to do the same as I directed the churches of Galatia to do.

Now, brethren, you know that the household of Stephanas were the first converts and our firstfruits in Achaia (most of Greece), and how they have consecrated and devoted themselves to the service of the saints (God's people).

also to submit to such people, and to everyone who works and labors with them.

For they have refreshed my spirit and yours. Therefore recognize such people.
