'Speaking' in the Bible

that by Him you were made rich in everything-in all speaking and all knowledge-

I am not speaking these things according to human judgment, am I? Or does not the Law also say these things?

Isn't he really speaking for our benefit? Yes, this was written for our benefit, because the one who plows should plow in hope, and the one who threshes should thresh in hope of sharing in the crop.

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

Now I am not speaking about your own conscience, but the [conscience] of the other [person]. For why [is] my freedom judged by another's conscience?

For the person who speaks in [another] language is not speaking to men but to God, since no one understands him; however, he speaks mysteries in the Spirit.

he who is speaking in an unknown tongue, himself doth edify, and he who is prophesying, an assembly doth edify;

and I wish you all to speak with tongues, and more that ye may prophecy, for greater is he who is prophesying than he who is speaking with tongues, except one may interpret, that the assembly may receive edification.

Now, brethren, if I come unto you speaking with tongues, what shall I profit you, except I shall speak to you either by revelation, or by knowledge, or by prophesying, or by doctrine?

In the same way, unless you use your tongue for intelligible speech, how will what is spoken be known? For you will be speaking into the air.

if, then, I do not know the power of the voice, I shall be to him who is speaking a foreigner, and he who is speaking, is to me a foreigner;

wherefore he who is speaking in an unknown tongue -- let him pray that he may interpret;

It follows that speaking in other languages is intended as a sign, not to believers but to unbelievers. But prophecy is not for unbelievers but for believers.

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?

If there is speaking in an unknown tongue, only two or at the most three should speak, and they should do so one at a time, and one should interpret;

or if there is no interpreter, let the man with the gift be silent in the Church, speaking to himself and to God.

And if someone sitting down receives a revelation, the person who is speaking should conclude.

Therefore, my brothers, be eager to prophesy, and do not forbid speaking in [other] languages.
