1 Corinthians 14:26-40 - Specific Instructions For Orderly Worship Services

26 How is it then brethren? When ye come together, every man hath his song, hath his doctrine, hath his tongue, hath his revelation, hath his interpretation: Let all things be done unto edifying. 27 If any man speak with tongues, let it be two at once - or at the most three at once - and that by course, and let another interpret it: 28 But if there be no interpreter, let him keep silence in the congregation, and let him speak to himself, and to God. 29 Let the prophets speak two at once, or three at once, and let others judge. 30 If any revelation be made to another that sitteth by, let the first hold his peace. 31 For ye may all prophesy one by one, that all may learn, and all may have comfort. 32 For the spirits of the prophets are in the power of the prophets. 33 For God is not causer of strife: but of peace, as he is in all other congregations of the saints. 34 Let your wives keep silence in the congregations. For it is not permitted unto them to speak: but let them be under obedience, as saith the law. 35 If they will learn any thing, let them ask their husbands at home. For it is a shame for women to speak in the congregation. 36 Sprang the word of God from you? Either came it unto you only?

37 If any man think himself a prophet, either spiritual: let him understand what things I write unto you. For they are the commandments of the Lord. 38 But and if any man be ignorant, let him be ignorant. 39 Wherefore, brethren, covet to prophesy, and forbid not to speak with tongues. 40 And let all things be done honestly and in order.
