11 For no one can lay any other foundation, but that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ: and if any build upon this foundation gold, 12 silver, precious stones, or wood, hay, stubble; 13 every man's work shall be made manifest. For the great day will shew it; because it will be discovered by fire, and the fire will prove every man's work of what sort it is.
