'Edification' in the Bible

/60424164/words_300x250

and I wish you all to speak with tongues, and more that ye may prophecy, for greater is he who is prophesying than he who is speaking with tongues, except one may interpret, that the assembly may receive edification.

Have you been thinking all this time that we are defending ourselves to you? We are speaking in Christ before God, and all [these things], dear friends, [are] for your edification.

nor give heed to fables and endless genealogies, which generate questions other than that the edification of God is by faith.
