For, just as in one body we have many members, yet, all the members, have not the same office, So, we, the many, are one body in Christ, yet, severally, members one of another. Now, having gifts of favour, according to the favour given unto us, differing - whether prophesying, let us use it according to the proportion of our faith, read more.
Or ministering, use it in our ministering, or he that teacheth, let him use his gift in his teaching, Or he that exhorteth, in his exhorting, he that imparteth, let it be with liberality, he that taketh a lead, with diligence, he that sheweth mercy, with cheerfulness.

Know ye not that, your bodies, are, members of Christ? Shall I, then, take away the members of the Christ and make them members of a harlot? Far be it! Or know ye not that, he that joineth himself unto the harlot, is, one body? For, saith he, the two, shall become, one flesh; But, he that joineth himself unto the Lord, is, one Spirit.

The cup of blessing which we bless, is it not, a sharing together of the blood of the Christ? The loaf which we break, is it not, a sharing together of the body of the Christ? Because, one loaf, one body, we, the many, are, for we, all, of the one loaf, partake.

For, just as, the body, is one, and yet hath many members, but, all the members of the body, though many, are one body, so, also, the Christ; - For, even to one Spirit, we all, into one body, have been immersed, - whether Jews or Greeks, whether bond or free, - and, all, of one Spirit, have been caused to drink. For, the body also, is not one member, but many: read more.
Though the foot should say - Because I am not a hand, I am not of the body, Is it, therefore, not, of the body? And, though the ear should say - Because I am not an eye, I am not of the body, Is it, therefore, not, of the body? If, the whole body, were, an eye, where were the hearing? If, the whole were, hearing, where were, the smelling? But, now, hath God set the members, each one of them in the body, even as he pleased. But, if they all had been one member, Where had been, the body? Now, however there are many members, yet one body; Andthe eye cannot say unto the hand - I have no need of thee, - nor, again, the head, unto the feet - I have no need of you: - Nay! much more, the members which seem to be weaker are necessary, And, the parts of the body which we deem to be less honourable, on these, more abundant honour, do we bestow, and, our uncomely parts, have, more abundant comeliness, Whereas, our comely parts, have, no need. But, God, hath tempered the body together, - unto that which was lacking, giving more abundant honour; - That there might be no division in the body, but that the members might have, the same, care, one for another; And, whether one member, suffereth, all the members, suffer with it, or, a member is glorified, all the members, rejoice together. Now, ye, are the body of Christ, and members severally; - And God hath, indeed, set, certain, in the assembly, - first apostles, second prophets, third teachers, after that mighty works, then gifts of healings, helps, guidings, kinds of tongues. Are all apostles? Are all prophets? Are all teachers? Are all mighty works? Have, all, gifts of healings? Do, all, with tongues, speak? Do, all, translate? Be envious, however, of the greater gifts; and, yet, a much more excellent way, unto you, I point out: -

And what the surpassing greatness of his power unto us who believe, - according to the energy of the grasp of his might which he energised in the Christ, when he raised him from among the dead, and seated him at his right hand in the heavenlies, Over-above all principality, authority, and power, and lordship, and every name that is named, not only in this age, but also in the coming one, read more.
And did put, all things, in subjection beneath his feet. And gave him to be head over all things unto the assembly, Which, indeed, is his body, the fulness of him who, the all things in all, is for himself filling up.

I exhort you, therefore, I, the prisoner in the Lord, to walk in a manner worthy of the calling wherewith ye were called: - With all lowliness and meekness, with long suffering, bearing one with another in love, Giving diligence to keep - the oneness of the Spirit in the uniting-bond of peace, - read more.
One body, and one spirit, even as ye were also called in one hope of your calling, One Lord, one faith, one immersion, One God and Father of all - who is over all, and through all, and in all. To each one of you, however, hath favour been given, according to the measure of the free-gift of the Christ; Wherefore he saith - Ascending on high, he took captivity captive, and gave gifts unto men. Now this, He ascended; what is it, - save - that he also descended into the under parts of the earth? He that descended, he, it is who also ascended over-above all the heavens, that he might fill all things; And, he, gave - some, indeed, to be apostles, and some, prophets, and some, evangelists, and some, shepherds and teachers, - With a view to the fitting of the saints for the work of ministering, for an upbuilding of the body of the Christ; Until we all advance - into the oneness of the faith, and the personal knowledge of the Son of God, into a man of full-growth, into the measure of the stature of the fulness of the Christ; That we may, no longer, be infants - billow-tossed and shifted round with every wind of teaching, - in the craft of men, in knavery suited to the artifice of error; But, pursuing truth - may, in love, grow into him in all things, - who is the head, Christ, - Out of whom all the body - fitly framing itself together, and connecting itself, through means of every joint of supply, by way of energising in the measure of each single part - secureth the growing of the body, unto an upbuilding of itself in love.

Ye wives, unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord, Because, a husband, is the head of his wife, as, the Christ also, is the head of the assembly, he, being the saviour of the body, - Nevertheless, as, the assembly, submitteth herself unto the Christ, so, the wives, unto their husbands, in everything: read more.
Ye husbands, be loving your wives, even as, the Christ also, loved the assembly, and delivered, himself, up in her behalf, That, her, he might sanctify, having purified her with the bath of water, in declaration, That, he, might present, unto himself, the assembly, all glorious, not having spot or wrinkle or any of such things, but that she should be holy and blameless; So, ought the husbands also to be loving their own wives, as their own bodies, - he that loveth his own wife, loveth himself, No one, in fact, ever yet hated, his own flesh, but nourisheth and cherisheth it, - even as, the Christ, the assembly, Because, members, are we of his body; - For this cause, will a man leave his father and his mother, and will cleave unto his wife, and, they two, shall become, one flesh. This sacred secret, is, great, - I, however, am speaking as to Christ and as tothe assembly; - Nevertheless, ye also, do ye, individually, each man be so loving, his own wife, as himself, and, the wife, see that she reverence her husband.



Now, am I rejoicing in the sufferings on your behalf, and am filling up the things that lack of the tribulations of the Christ, in my flesh, in behalf of his body, which is the assembly, Of which, I, have become minister - according to the administration of God which hath been given unto me to you-ward, to fill up the word of God,





So will Yahweh their God, save them, on that day. yea, as a flock of sheep, his people, - for they shall be like the jewels of a diadem sparkling over his land.

He met him in a desert land, And in the howling waste of a wilderness, - He encompassed him watched over him, Shielded him as the pupil of his own eye.


Thus, saith Yahweh of hosts, For his own honour, hath he sent me unto the nations that are spoiling you, - Surely, he that toucheth you, toucheth the pupil of mine eye.

Therefore shall they be mine, saith Yahweh of hosts, in the day for which, I, am preparing treasure, - and I will deal tenderly with them, just as a man, dealeth tenderly, with his own son who is serving him.

For, I, will let him understand how many things he must needs, for my name, suffer.



And, if children, heirs also - heirs, indeed, of God, but co-heirs with Christ, - if, at least, we are suffering together, in order that we may also be glorified together. For I reckon that unworthy are the sufferings of the present season to be compared with the glory about to be revealed towards us; For, the eager outlook of creation, ardently awaiteth the revealing of the sons of God, - read more.
For, unto vanity, hath creation been made subject - not by choice, but by reason of him that made it subject, in hope That, creation itself also, shall be freed - from the bondage of the decay into the freedom of the glory of the sons of God; For we know that, all creation, is sighing together, and travailing-in-birth-throes together until the present, - And, not only so, but, we ourselves, also, who have the first-fruit of the Spirit - weeven ourselves, within our own selves do sigh, - sonship ardently awaiting - the redeeming of our body; -

And toil, working with our own hands: being reviled, we bless, being persecuted, we hold on, Being defamed, we beseech: as the sweepings of the world have we become, the offscouring of all - until even now.


For, evermore, we, the living, unto death are being delivered, for Jesus' sake, in order that, the life also of Jesus, may be made manifest in our mortal flesh: So that, his death, in us, doth energise, but, his life, in you. Howbeit, seeing that we have the same spirit of faith, according to that which is written - I believed, therefore I spake, we, also believe, therefore also we speak: read more.
Knowing that, he who raised up the Lord Jesus, will raise up, us also, together with Jesus, and will present us together with you. For, all things, are for your sakes, in order that, the favour abounding, may, through means of the greater number, cause, the thanksgiving, to superabound unto the glory of God. Wherefore we faint not, but, even if, our outer man, is decaying, nevertheless, our inner man , is renewing day by day. For, the momentary lightness of thee tribulation, in a manner yet more and more excelling, is working out for us, an age-abiding weight of glory, - So long as we are not looking out for the visible things, but for the invisible; for, the visible things, are temporary, whereas, the invisible, are age-abiding.

And, in fact, he was sick, nigh unto death; but, God, had mercy on him, - and, not on him only, but, on me also, lest, sorrow upon sorrow, I should have.
