Therefore, my brethren, desire earnestly to prophesy, and do not forbid to speak in tongues.
But earnestly desire the greater gifts. And I show you a still more excellent way.
Pursue love, yet desire earnestly spiritual gifts, but especially that you may prophesy.
But one who prophesies speaks to men for edification and exhortation and consolation.
Now I wish that you all spoke in tongues, but even more that you would prophesy; and greater is one who prophesies than one who speaks in tongues, unless he interprets, so that the church may receive edifying.
But if all prophesy, and an unbeliever or an ungifted man enters, he is convicted by all, he is called to account by all;
do not despise prophetic utterances.
