Now, concerning the idol-sacrifices, we are aware - because we, all, have knowledge, - knowledge, puffeth up, but, love, buildeth up;

Love, is patient, is gracious. Love, is not envious, vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up, Acteth not unbecomingly, seeketh not her own things, is not easily provoked, imputeth not that which is base, Rejoiceth not over unrighteousness, but rejoiceth in sympathy with truth, - read more.
All things, covereth, all things, believeth, all things, hopeth, all things, endureth. Love, at no time, faileth; - but, whether prophesyings, they shall be done away, whether tongues, they shall cease, whether gaining knowledge, it shall be done away; For, in part, are we gaining knowledge, and, in part, are we prophesying, - But, as soon as that which is complete is come, that which is in part, shall be done away. When I was a child, I used to speak as a child, to prefer as child, to reason as a child: now I have become a man, I have laid aside the things of the child! For we see, as yet, through a dim window, obscurely, but, then, face to face: as yet, I gain knowledge, in part, but, then, shall I fully know, even as I was also fully known. But, now abide - faith, hope, love, - these three; but, the greatest of these, is, love.

But, the end of all things, hath drawn near: - be of sound mind, therefore, and be sober for prayers; Before all things, keeping, fervent, your love, among yourselves, because, love, covereth a multitude of sins; Showing hospitality one to another without murmuring, -


The law and the prophets, were until John, - from that time, the good news of the kingdom of God, is being proclaimed, and, everyone, thereinto, is forcing his way. But it is, easier, for heaven and earth to pass away, than that, of the law, one little point, should fail.

Notwithstanding, be seeking his kingdom, - and, these things, shall be added unto you. Be not afraid, the dear little flock! for your Father delighteth to give you, the kingdom. Sell your possessions, and give alms, make for yourselves purses that wax not old, - treasure unfailing, in the heavens, where, thief, doth not draw near, and, moth, doth not spoil. read more.
For, where your treasure is, there, will your heart he also.








Love, is patient, is gracious. Love, is not envious, vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up, Acteth not unbecomingly, seeketh not her own things, is not easily provoked, imputeth not that which is base, Rejoiceth not over unrighteousness, but rejoiceth in sympathy with truth, - read more.

But, the fruit of the Spirit, is - love, joy, peace, long-suffering, graciousness, goodness, faithfulness, meekness, self-control; - against such things as these, there is no law.

Happy, the destitute, in spirit; for, theirs, is the kingdom of the heavens; Happy, they who mourn; for, they, shall be comforted: Happy, the meek; for, they, shall inherit the earth: read more.
Happy, they who hunger and thirst for righteousness; for, they, shall be filled: Happy, the merciful; for, they, shall receive mercy: Happy, the pure, in heart; for, they, shall, see God: Happy, the peacemakers; for, they, shall be, called sons of God: Happy, they who have been persecuted for righteousness' sake; for, theirs, is the kingdom of the heavens. Happy, are ye, whensoever they may reproach you and persecute you, and say every evil thing against you, falsely, for my sake:

And, not only so, but let us boast also in our tribulations; knowing that, our tribulation, worketh out endurance. And, our endurance, a testing, and, our testing, hope, And, our hope, putteth not to shame. Because, the love of God, hath been poured out in our hearts, through the Holy Spirit that hath been given unto us:

Although with the tongues of men, I be speaking, and of messengers, and have not, love, I have become resounding brass, or a clanging cymbal; And, though I have the gift of prophesying, and know all sacred secrets, and all knowledge, - and though I have all faith, so as to be removing mountains, and have not, love, I am, nothing; And, though I morsel out all my goods, - and though I deliver up my body, that I may boast, and have not, love, I am profited, nothing. read more.
Love, is patient, is gracious. Love, is not envious, vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up, Acteth not unbecomingly, seeketh not her own things, is not easily provoked, imputeth not that which is base, Rejoiceth not over unrighteousness, but rejoiceth in sympathy with truth, - All things, covereth, all things, believeth, all things, hopeth, all things, endureth. Love, at no time, faileth; - but, whether prophesyings, they shall be done away, whether tongues, they shall cease, whether gaining knowledge, it shall be done away;

And, for this very reason also - adding, on your part, all diligence, supply, in your faith, excellence, and, in your excellence, knowledge, And, in your knowledge, self-control, and, in your self-control, endurance, and, in your endurance, godliness, And, in your godliness, brotherly affection, and, in your brotherly affection, love. read more.
These things, unto you, belonging and abounding, neither idle nor unfruitful, constitute you, regarding the personal knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ; For, he to whom these things are not present, is, blind, seeing only what is near, having come, to forget, his purification from his old sins.


If anyone thinketh that he knoweth anything, not yet knoweth he, as he must needs come to know,

Frustrating the signs of praters, And, diviners, he confoundeth, - Turning wise men backwards, And their knowledge, he maketh folly;

And, unto another, energies of mighty works, and, unto another, prophesying, and, unto another, discriminations of spirits, - unto a different one, kinds of tongues, and, unto another, translation of tongues; -

Have, all, gifts of healings? Do, all, with tongues, speak? Do, all, translate?

For, he that speaketh with a tongue, not unto men, doth speak, but, unto God, - for, no one, understandeth, although, in spirit, he is speaking sacred secrets; But, be that prophesieth, unto men, doth speak - edification, and exhortation, and comfort. He that speaketh with a tongue, buildeth up, himself, whereas, he that prophesieth, buildeth up, an assembly. read more.
Howbeit I wish you all to speak with tongues, but, rather, that ye may prophesy, - moreover, greater, is he that prophesieth, than he that speaketh with tongues, - unless indeed he translate, that, the assembly, may receive upbuilding. But, now, brethren - if I come unto you speaking with tongues, what shall I profit, you, except I speak, unto you, either by way of revelation, or knowledge, or prophesying, or teaching? In like manner, the things without life giving sound, whether pipe or harp, if, a distinction in the sounds, they do not give, how shall it be known, what is being piped or harped? For, if also, an uncertain sound, a trumpet, should give, who shall prepare himself for battle? So, also, ye, through means of the tongue, except ye give intelligible discourse, how shall it be known what is being spoken? for ye will be speaking, to the air. There may happen to be so many kinds of languages in the world, and, not one, unspoken: - If, then, I do not know the meaning of the language, I shall be, unto him that is speaking, a foreigner, and, he that is speaking, shall be, in my case, a foreigner. So, ye, also - since ye are, envious, of spirits, unto the upbuilding of the assembly, seek to be pre-eminent. Wherefore, he that speaketh with a tongue, let him pray that he may translate; For, if I am praying in a tongue, my spirit, is praying, but, my mind, is unfruitful. What is it then? I will pray with the spirit, but I will pray also with the mind, - I will strike the strings with the spirit, butI will strike the strings also with the mind. Else, if thou be blessing in a spirit, he that filleth up the place of the ungifted person, how shall he say the Amen upon thy thanksgiving? since indeed, what thou art saying, he knoweth not; For, thou, indeed, excellently art giving thanks, but, the other, is not being built up. I give thanks unto God! - More than ye all, am I speaking with tongues; But, in assembly, I desire to speak five words with my mind, that, others also, I may instruct, than myriads of words in a tongue.

In the law, it is written - With strange tongues, and with lips of strangers, will I speak unto this people; and, not even so, will they hearken unto me, - saith the Lord. So that, the tongues, are for a sign - not unto them that believe, but, unto them that believe not; whereas, prophesying, is not for them that believe not, but, for them that believe. If, then, the whole assembly come together with one consent, and, all, are speaking with tongues, - and there come in persons unskilled or unbelieving, will they not say that ye are raving? read more.
But, if, all, be prophesying, - and there come in one who is unbelieving or unskilled, he is convicted by all, he is searched by all, the secrets of his heart, become manifest, And, so, falling down upon his face, he will do homage unto God, reporting that, in reality, God is, among you. What, then, is it, brethren? Whensoever ye are coming together, each one, hath a psalm, hath a teaching, hath a revelation, hath a tongue, hath a translation: - let, all things, be done, unto building up. If, with a tongue, one is speaking, let it be by two, or, at the most, three, - and by turns; and let, one, be translating; But, if there be none to translate, let him keep silence in assembly, and, unto himself, be speaking, and, unto God!

So, then, my brethren, - be zealous to prophesy, and do not forbid, to be speaking with tongues;
