Ye are the salt of the earth. But if the salt have lost its savor, wherewith shall itself be salted? It is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot by men. Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hid; nor do men light a lamp, and put it under the bushel, but on the lampstand; and it giveth light to all that are in the house. read more.
In like manner let your light shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven.

And he will go before his face in the spirit and power of Elijah, to turn the hearts of fathers to children, and the disobedient to the wisdom of the righteous, to make ready for the Lord a prepared people.

and so were also James and John the sons of Zebedee, who were partners with Simon And Jesus said to Simon, Fear not; henceforth thou shalt catch men.




For consider, brethren, who ye are that have been called; not many wise men after the fashion of the world, not many mighty, not many noble; but the foolish things of the world did God choose, to put to shame the wise; and the weak things of the world did God choose, to put to shame the things which are strong; and the mean things of the world, and the things which are despised, did God choose, the things which are not, to bring to nought things that are; read more.
that no flesh might glory before God.


according to the glorious gospel of the blessed God which was committed to my trust.







And if some of the branches have been broken off, and thou, a wild olive, hast been grafted in among them, and become a partaker with them of the root and fatness of the olivetree, boast not over the branches; for if thou boast, thou dost not bear the root, but the root thee. Thou wilt say then, The branches were broken off, that I might be grafted in. read more.
Be it so. It was for their unbelief that they were broken off, and thou standest through thy faith; be not highminded, but fear. For if God spared the natural branches, take care lest he spare not thee.

For Christ sent me not to baptize, but to preach the gospel; not with wisdom of speech, lest the cross of Christ should be made of no effect. For the preaching of the cross is to those who are perishing, foolishness, but to us who are being saved, it is the power of God. For it is written: "I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nought the discernment of the discerning." read more.
Where is the wise man? Where the scribe? Where the disputer of this world? Hath not God made foolish the wisdom of the world? For since, in the wisdom of God, the world by its wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save those who believe; since even Jews ask for signs, and the Greeks seek for wisdom; but we preach Christ crucified, to Jews a stumblingblock, and to gentiles foolishness, but to those who are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God. Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men. For consider, brethren, who ye are that have been called; not many wise men after the fashion of the world, not many mighty, not many noble; but the foolish things of the world did God choose, to put to shame the wise; and the weak things of the world did God choose, to put to shame the things which are strong; and the mean things of the world, and the things which are despised, did God choose, the things which are not, to bring to nought things that are; that no flesh might glory before God. But from him it is that ye are in Christ Jesus, who from God was made to us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption; that, according as it is written, "He that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord."

And these things, brethren, I have transferred in a figure to myself and Apollos for your sakes, that in us ye may learn not to go beyond what is written, that no one of you may pride himself in one against another. For who maketh thee to differ from another? And what hast thou that thou didst not receive? But if thou didst receive it, why dost thou boast, as if thou hadst not received it?

For we do not venture to reckon ourselves among, or compare ourselves with, some of those who commend themselves; but they, measuring themselves among themselves, and comparing themselves with themselves, are not wise. But we will not boast of things that are without our measure, but according to the measure of the line which God allotted us,a measure to reach even to you. For we do not stretch ourselves beyond our measure, as though we reached not to you; (for as far as even to you did we come, in the gospel of Christ;) read more.
not boasting of things that are without measure, in other mens labors, but having hope, when your faith is increased, that our line will through you be still further extended, so that we may preach the gospel in the regions beyond you; not boasting, in anothers line, of things made ready to our hand. But "he that boasteth, let him boast in the Lord." For not he that commendeth himself is approved, but he whom the Lord commendeth.

For by grace ye have been saved, through faith; and this is not of yourselves; it is the gift of God; not of works, lest any one should boast.





but the foolish things of the world did God choose, to put to shame the wise; and the weak things of the world did God choose, to put to shame the things which are strong; and the mean things of the world, and the things which are despised, did God choose, the things which are not, to bring to nought things that are;

Jesus therefore said to them, Truly, truly do I say to you, Unless ye eat the flesh of the Son of man and drink his blood, ye have no life in you. He that eateth my flesh and drinketh my blood hath everlasting life; and I will raise him up in the last day. For my flesh is true food, and my blood is true drink. read more.
He that eateth my flesh and drinketh my blood dwelleth in me, and I in him.

My children, these things I write to you, that ye may not sin. And if any one have sinned, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous. And he is a propitiation for our sins; and not for ours only, but also for the whole world. And hereby we know that we know him, if we keep his commandments. read more.
He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. But whoever keepeth his word, truly in him is the love of God perfected. Hereby we know that we are in him. He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked.

Philip saith to him, Lord, show us the Father, and we shall be satisfied. Jesus saith to him, Have I been so long time with you, and dost thou not know me, Philip? He that hath seen me hath seen the Father; how is it that thou sayest, Show us the Father? Dost thou not believe that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? The words that I speak to you, I speak not from myself; but the Father, who dwelleth in me, doeth his works. read more.
Believe me, that I am in the Father, and the Father in me; but if not, believe for the very works sake. Truly, truly do I say to you, He that believeth in me, the works that I do shall he do also, and greater than these shall he do; because I am going to the Father, and whatever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do; that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it. If ye love me, ye will keep my commandments; and I will pray the Father, and he will give you another Comforter, that he may be with you for ever; the Spirit of truth, which the world cannot receive, because it doth not behold it, nor know it; ye know it, because it abideth with you, and will be in you. I will not leave you bereaved; I am coming to you. Yet a little while, and the world beholdeth me no more; but ye will behold me, because I live, and ye will live. In that day ye will know that I am in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you.

For consider, brethren, who ye are that have been called; not many wise men after the fashion of the world, not many mighty, not many noble; but the foolish things of the world did God choose, to put to shame the wise; and the weak things of the world did God choose, to put to shame the things which are strong; and the mean things of the world, and the things which are despised, did God choose, the things which are not, to bring to nought things that are; read more.

Beware lest there be some one who shall make a prey of you through philosophy and vain deceit, according to the tradition of men, according to the rudiments of the world, and not according to Christ. For in him dwelleth all the fullness of the Godhead bodily, and ye are made full in him, who is the head of all principality and power; read more.
in whom also ye have been circumcised with a circumcision not performed by hand, in putting off the body of the flesh in the circumcision of Christ, having been buried with him in your baptism; in which also ye were raised to life with him through faith in the working of God, who raised him from the dead;

Beloved, if our heart condemn us not, we have confidence toward God; and whatever we ask, we receive of him, because we keep his commandments, and do the things that are pleasing in his sight. And this is his commandment, that we should believe in the name of his Son Jesus Christ, and should love one another, as he gave commandment. read more.
And he that keepeth his commandments abideth in him, and he in him; and hereby we know that he abideth in us, by the Spirit, which he gave us.

We know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth under the dominion of the Evil One. And we know that the Son of God hath come, and hath given us understanding, that we may know the True One; and we are in the True One, in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and everlasting life.

For the preaching of the cross is to those who are perishing, foolishness, but to us who are being saved, it is the power of God. For it is written: "I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nought the discernment of the discerning." Where is the wise man? Where the scribe? Where the disputer of this world? Hath not God made foolish the wisdom of the world? read more.
For since, in the wisdom of God, the world by its wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save those who believe; since even Jews ask for signs, and the Greeks seek for wisdom; but we preach Christ crucified, to Jews a stumblingblock, and to gentiles foolishness, but to those who are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God. Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men. For consider, brethren, who ye are that have been called; not many wise men after the fashion of the world, not many mighty, not many noble; but the foolish things of the world did God choose, to put to shame the wise; and the weak things of the world did God choose, to put to shame the things which are strong; and the mean things of the world, and the things which are despised, did God choose, the things which are not, to bring to nought things that are;

And I, brethren, when I came to you, came not with excellency of speech, or of wisdom, declaring to you the testimony of God. For I determined not to know anything while with you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified. And I was with you in weakness, and in fear, and in much trembling; read more.
and my speech and my preaching were not in persuasive words of wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit, and of power; that your faith might not rest on the wisdom of men, but on the power of God. But we do speak wisdom among the perfect; not, however, the wisdom of this world, nor of the rulers of this world, who are coming to nought; but we speak Gods wisdom in a mystery, the hidden wisdom, which God determined on before the world was, for our glory; which none of the rulers of this world comprehended; for had they comprehended it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory; but, as it is written: "The things which eye hath not seen, and ear hath not heard, and which have not entered into the heart of man, the great things which God hath prepared for those that love him." For God hath revealed them to us by his Spirit; for the Spirit searcheth all things, even the depths of God. For who among men knoweth the things of a man, but the spirit of the man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no one but the Spirit of God. But we did not receive the spirit of the world, but the Spirit which is from God, that we might know the things that have been given to us by the grace of God; which things we also speak, not in words taught by mans wisdom, but in those taught by the Spirit, connecting what is spiritual l with what is spiritual. But the unspiritual man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God; for they are foolishness to him, and he cannot know them; because they are spiritually discerned.
