How is it then, brethren? when you come together, every one of you has a psalm, has a doctrine, has a tongue, has a revelation, has an interpretation. Let all things be done unto edifying.
Let us therefore follow after the things which make for peace, and things with which one may edify another.
But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man for profit.
Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord;
Again, do you think that we excuse ourselves unto you? we speak before God in Christ: but we do all things, dearly beloved, for your edifying.
Therefore I write these things being absent, lest being present I should use sharpness, according to the power which the Lord has given me to edification, and not to destruction.
Therefore comfort yourselves together, and edify one another, even as also you do.
He that speaks in an unknown tongue edifies himself; but he that prophesies edifies the church.
Even so you, since you are zealous of spiritual gifts, seek that you may excel to the edifying of the church.
If any man speak in an unknown tongue, let it be by two, or at the most by three, and that in turn; and let one interpret.
Let all things be done decently and in order.
For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:
From whom the whole body being fitly joined together and knit together by that which every joint supplies, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, makes increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love.
Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers.
