1 And I, brethren, could not speak to you, as to spiritual, but as to carnal??s to babes in Christ. 2 I fed you with milk, and not solid food; for not yet were ye able to bear it; nay, nor even now are ye able; 3 for ye are yet carnal; for whereas there is among you jealousy and strife, are ye not carnal, and do ye not walk as men? 4 For, when one says, "I am of Paul;" and another, "I am of Apollos;" are ye not carnal?
5 What, then, is Apollos? and what is Paul? Ministers through whom ye believed; and as the Lord gave to each. 6 I planted, Apollos watered; but God causeth it to grow. 7 So that neither is he that plants anything, nor he that waters; but God Who causeth it to grow. 8 And he that plants and he that waters are one; but each shall receive his own reward, according to his own labor. 9 For we are God's fellow-workers; ye are God's husbandry, God's building. 10 According to the grace of God which was given to me, as a wise master-builder, I laid a foundation; and another builds thereon. But let each one take heed how he builds thereon; 11 for other foundation can no man lay than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ. 12 And, if any one builds on the foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble; 13 the work of each one shall be made manifest; for the day shall declare it, because it is revealed in fire; and the fire itself will prove each one's work, of what sort it is. 14 If any one's work which he built thereon shall remain, he shall receive a reward. 15 If any one's work shall be burned up, he will suffer loss, but he himself shall be saved; yet so as through fire.
16 Know ye not that ye are a temple of God, and that the Spirit of God is dwelling in you? 17 If any one destroys the temple of God, him will God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, and such are ye.
18 Let no one deceive himself. If any one among you thinks that he is wise in this world, let him become a fool, that he may become wise. 19 For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God; for it has been written, "He Who taketh the wise in their craftiness." 20 And again, "The Lord knoweth the reasonings of the wise, that they are vain." 21 Therefore, let no one glory in men; for all things are yours; 22 whether Paul, or Apollos, or Cephas, or the world, or life, or death, or things present, or things to come, all are yours; 23 and ye are Christ's; and Christ is God's.
