to another faith by the same Spirit, and to another gifts of healing by the one Spirit,

226

Or do you not know that the one who joins himself to a prostitute is one body with her? For He says, "THE TWO SHALL BECOME ONE FLESH."

243

However not all men have this knowledge; but some, being accustomed to the idol until now, eat food as if it were sacrificed to an idol; and their conscience being weak is defiled.

245

All the brethren greet you. Greet one another with a holy kiss.

246

247

and again, "THE LORD KNOWS THE REASONINGS of the wise, THAT THEY ARE USELESS."

248

But he who is spiritual appraises all things, yet he himself is appraised by no one.

249

If any man destroys the temple of God, God will destroy him, for the temple of God is holy, and that is what you are.

I gave you milk to drink, not solid food; for you were not yet able to receive it. Indeed, even now you are not yet able,

253

254

and the spirits of prophets are subject to prophets;

255

Do we not have a right to eat and drink?

256

but if there is no interpreter, he must keep silent in the church; and let him speak to himself and to God.

257

So then let no one boast in men For all things belong to you,

258

For you can all prophesy one by one, so that all may learn and all may be exhorted;

261

Therefore the woman ought to have a symbol of authority on her head, because of the angels.

I thank my God always concerning you for the grace of God which was given you in Christ Jesus,

263

For this reason many among you are weak and sick, and a number sleep.

264

For this reason I have sent to you Timothy, who is my beloved and faithful child in the Lord, and he will remind you of my ways which are in Christ, just as I teach everywhere in every church.

265

Do you not know that we will judge angels? How much more matters of this life?

266

However, in the Lord, neither is woman independent of man, nor is man independent of woman.

267

For he who eats and drinks, eats and drinks judgment to himself if he does not judge the body rightly.

271

in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet; for the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed.

But someone will say, "How are the dead raised? And with what kind of body do they come?"

274

and you belong to Christ; and Christ belongs to God.

277

and all drank the same spiritual drink, for they were drinking from a spiritual rock which followed them; and the rock was Christ.

278

For the kingdom of God does not consist in words but in power.

280

For to one is given the word of wisdom through the Spirit, and to another the word of knowledge according to the same Spirit;

281

Otherwise, what will those do who are baptized for the dead? If the dead are not raised at all, why then are they baptized for them?

282

I affirm, brethren, by the boasting in you which I have in Christ Jesus our Lord, I die daily.

283

For if I preach the gospel, I have nothing to boast of, for I am under compulsion; for woe is me if I do not preach the gospel.

284

To the weak I became weak, that I might win the weak; I have become all things to all men, so that I may by all means save some.

285

But if we judged ourselves rightly, we would not be judged.

286

But when this perishable will have put on the imperishable, and this mortal will have put on immortality, then will come about the saying that is written, "DEATH IS SWALLOWED UP in victory.

287

All things are lawful, but not all things are profitable All things are lawful, but not all things edify.

289

For I am conscious of nothing against myself, yet I am not by this acquitted; but the one who examines me is the Lord.

290

by which also you are saved, if you hold fast the word which I preached to you, unless you believed in vain.

292

For who among men knows the thoughts of a man except the spirit of the man which is in him? Even so the thoughts of God no one knows except the Spirit of God.

293

but I discipline my body and make it my slave, so that, after I have preached to others, I myself will not be disqualified.

294

Your boasting is not good Do you not know that a little leaven leavens the whole lump of dough?

295

and that He was buried, and that He was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures,

296

297

and that He appeared to Cephas, then to the twelve.

298

Every man who has something on his head while praying or prophesying disgraces his head.

299

But to me it is a very small thing that I may be examined by you, or by any human court; in fact, I do not even examine myself.

300

Therefore concerning the eating of things sacrificed to idols, we know that there is no such thing as an idol in the world, and that there is no God but one.

301

So if you have law courts dealing with matters of this life, do you appoint them as judges who are of no account in the church?

302

whether Paul or Apollos or Cephas or the world or life or death or things present or things to come; all things belong to you,

304

So also is the resurrection of the dead It is sown a perishable body, it is raised an imperishable body;

305

I planted, Apollos watered, but God was causing the growth.

307

But actually, I wrote to you not to associate with any so-called brother if he is an immoral person, or covetous, or an idolater, or a reviler, or a drunkard, or a swindler--not even to eat with such a one.

311

In this case, moreover, it is required of stewards that one be found trustworthy.

312

and my message and my preaching were not in persuasive words of wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power,

313

If I have the gift of prophecy, and know all mysteries and all knowledge; and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing.

314

But one and the same Spirit works all these things, distributing to each one individually just as He wills.

316

Am I not free? Am I not an apostle? Have I not seen Jesus our Lord? Are you not my work in the Lord?

317

What then is Apollos? And what is Paul? Servants through whom you believed, even as the Lord gave opportunity to each one.

318

Now these things, brethren, I have figuratively applied to myself and Apollos for your sakes, so that in us you may learn not to exceed what is written, so that no one of you will become arrogant in behalf of one against the other.

319

I say this to your shame Is it so, that there is not among you one wise man who will be able to decide between his brethren,

321

but brother goes to law with brother, and that before unbelievers?

322

I have decided to deliver such a one to Satan for the destruction of his flesh, so that his spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus.

324

But I want you to be free from concern. One who is unmarried is concerned about the things of the Lord, how he may please the Lord;

328

For HE HAS PUT ALL THINGS IN SUBJECTION UNDER HIS FEET But when He says, "All things are put in subjection," it is evident that He is excepted who put all things in subjection to Him.

does not act unbecomingly; it does not seek its own, is not provoked, does not take into account a wrong suffered,

337

No, but I say that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice, they sacrifice to demons and not to God; and I do not want you to become sharers in demons.

338

bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.

340

Stop depriving one another, except by agreement for a time, so that you may devote yourselves to prayer, and come together again so that Satan will not tempt you because of your lack of self-control.

341

Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ? Shall I then take away the members of Christ and make them members of a prostitute? May it never be!

342

For I am the least of the apostles, and not fit to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the church of God.

343

If from human motives I fought with wild beasts at Ephesus, what does it profit me? If the dead are not raised, LET US EAT AND DRINK, FOR TOMORROW WE DIE.

344

But each in his own order: Christ the first fruits, after that those who are Christ's at His coming,

345

When all things are subjected to Him, then the Son Himself also will be subjected to the One who subjected all things to Him, so that God may be all in all.

346

What is the outcome then? I will pray with the spirit and I will pray with the mind also; I will sing with the spirit and I will sing with the mind also.

347

For if I pray in a tongue, my spirit prays, but my mind is unfruitful.

350

Everyone who competes in the games exercises self-control in all things They then do it to receive a perishable wreath, but we an imperishable.

353

and to another the effecting of miracles, and to another prophecy, and to another the distinguishing of spirits, to another various kinds of tongues, and to another the interpretation of tongues.

354

the secrets of his heart are disclosed; and so he will fall on his face and worship God, declaring that God is certainly among you.

355

But to the rest I say, not the Lord, that if any brother has a wife who is an unbeliever, and she consents to live with him, he must not divorce her.

356

But every woman who has her head uncovered while praying or prophesying disgraces her head, for she is one and the same as the woman whose head is shaved.

357

Or do you not know that the saints will judge the world? If the world is judged by you, are you not competent to constitute the smallest law courts?

358

For a man ought not to have his head covered, since he is the image and glory of God; but the woman is the glory of man.

360

for indeed man was not created for the woman's sake, but woman for the man's sake.

361

What do you desire? Shall I come to you with a rod, or with love and a spirit of gentleness?

362

For one who speaks in a tongue does not speak to men but to God; for no one understands, but in his spirit he speaks mysteries.

364

After that He appeared to more than five hundred brethren at one time, most of whom remain until now, but some have fallen asleep;

365

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.

367

Food is for the stomach and the stomach is for food, but God will do away with both of them Yet the body is not for immorality, but for the Lord, and the Lord is for the body.

368

Do we not have a right to take along a believing wife, even as the rest of the apostles and the brothers of the Lord and Cephas?

369

Now concerning virgins I have no command of the Lord, but I give an opinion as one who by the mercy of the Lord is trustworthy.

372

Only, as the Lord has assigned to each one, as God has called each, in this manner let him walk And so I direct in all the churches.

374

For this perishable must put on the imperishable, and this mortal must put on immortality.

375

the wisdom which none of the rulers of this age has understood; for if they had understood it they would not have crucified the Lord of glory;

376

then He appeared to James, then to all the apostles;

377

Does not even nature itself teach you that if a man has long hair, it is a dishonor to him,

378

it is sown a natural body, it is raised a spiritual body. If there is a natural body, there is also a spiritual body.

380

Now I urge you, brethren (you know the household of Stephanas, that they were the first fruits of Achaia, and that they have devoted themselves for ministry to the saints),

381

For the wisdom of this world is foolishness before God For it is written, "He is THE ONE WHO CATCHES THE WISE IN THEIR CRAFTINESS";

384

Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

386

Let no man deceive himself If any man among you thinks that he is wise in this age, he must become foolish, so that he may become wise.

387

Yet even lifeless things, either flute or harp, in producing a sound, if they do not produce a distinction in the tones, how will it be known what is played on the flute or on the harp?

388

and last of all, as to one untimely born, He appeared to me also.

389

But now, brethren, if I come to you speaking in tongues, what will I profit you unless I speak to you either by way of revelation or of knowledge or of prophecy or of teaching?

391

The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law;

392

If anyone thinks he is a prophet or spiritual, let him recognize that the things which I write to you are the Lord's commandment.

393

just as I also please all men in all things, not seeking my own profit but the profit of the many, so that they may be saved.

394

Become sober-minded as you ought, and stop sinning; for some have no knowledge of God I speak this to your shame.

395

Therefore, my brethren, desire earnestly to prophesy, and do not forbid to speak in tongues.

397

There is one glory of the sun, and another glory of the moon, and another glory of the stars; for star differs from star in glory.

398

Therefore let one who speaks in a tongue pray that he may interpret.

399

But if any man thinks that he is acting unbecomingly toward his virgin daughter, if she is past her youth, and if it must be so, let him do what he wishes, he does not sin; let her marry.

400

But if there is no resurrection of the dead, not even Christ has been raised;

402

For if the bugle produces an indistinct sound, who will prepare himself for battle?

403

Why are we also in danger every hour?

404

If then I do not know the meaning of the language, I will be to the one who speaks a barbarian, and the one who speaks will be a barbarian to me.

405

Was it from you that the word of God first went forth? Or has it come to you only?

406

But I will come to you after I go through Macedonia, for I am going through Macedonia;

407

Moreover we are even found to be false witnesses of God, because we testified against God that He raised Christ, whom He did not raise, if in fact the dead are not raised.

408

But I will remain in Ephesus until Pentecost;

409

There are also heavenly bodies and earthly bodies, but the glory of the heavenly is one, and the glory of the earthly is another.

410

All flesh is not the same flesh, but there is one flesh of men, and another flesh of beasts, and another flesh of birds, and another of fish.

411

Now if Timothy comes, see that he is with you without cause to be afraid, for he is doing the Lord's work, as I also am.

413

There are, perhaps, a great many kinds of languages in the world, and no kind is without meaning.

414

and his interests are divided. The woman who is unmarried, and the virgin, is concerned about the things of the Lord, that she may be holy both in body and spirit; but one who is married is concerned about the things of the world, how she may please her husband.

415

If anyone is hungry, let him eat at home, so that you will not come together for judgment The remaining matters I will arrange when I come.

416

So then, my brethren, when you come together to eat, wait for one another.

418

So also you, unless you utter by the tongue speech that is clear, how will it be known what is spoken? For you will be speaking into the air.

420

But concerning Apollos our brother, I encouraged him greatly to come to you with the brethren; and it was not at all his desire to come now, but he will come when he has opportunity.

421

that you also be in subjection to such men and to everyone who helps in the work and labors.

422

When I arrive, whomever you may approve, I will send them with letters to carry your gift to Jerusalem;

423

This I say for your own benefit; not to put a restraint upon you, but to promote what is appropriate and to secure undistracted devotion to the Lord.

424

If they desire to learn anything, let them ask their own husbands at home; for it is improper for a woman to speak in church.

425

it is sown in dishonor, it is raised in glory; it is sown in weakness, it is raised in power;

426

For I do not wish to see you now just in passing; for I hope to remain with you for some time, if the Lord permits.

427

and if it is fitting for me to go also, they will go with me.

428

and perhaps I will stay with you, or even spend the winter, so that you may send me on my way wherever I may go.

429

But if anyone does not recognize this, he is not recognized.

430

So then both he who gives his own virgin daughter in marriage does well, and he who does not give her in marriage will do better.

431

but one who is married is concerned about the things of the world, how he may please his wife,

432

But God gives it a body just as He wished, and to each of the seeds a body of its own.

433

But in my opinion she is happier if she remains as she is; and I think that I also have the Spirit of God.

434

and that which you sow, you do not sow the body which is to be, but a bare grain, perhaps of wheat or of something else.

435

So let no one despise him But send him on his way in peace, so that he may come to me; for I expect him with the brethren.

436

As is the earthy, so also are those who are earthy; and as is the heavenly, so also are those who are heavenly.

437

But he who stands firm in his heart, being under no constraint, but has authority over his own will, and has decided this in his own heart, to keep his own virgin daughter, he will do well.
