'Us' in the Bible
For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.
But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption:
But rather what we are setting forth is a wisdom of God once hidden [from the human understanding] and now revealed to us by God -- "[that wisdom] which God devised and decreed before the ages for our glorification [to lift us into the glory of His presence].
But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.
Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.
We don't speak about these things with words taught us by human wisdom, but with words taught by the Spirit, as we explain spiritual things to spiritual people.
Who is Apollos, anyhow? Or who is Paul? They're merely servants through whom you came to believe, as the Lord gave to each of us his task.
the true character of each individual's work will become manifest. For the day of Christ will disclose it, because that day is soon to come upon us clothed in fire, and as for the quality of every one's work-- the fire is the thing which will test it.
Let a man so account of us, as of the ministers of Christ, and stewards of the mysteries of God.
And these things, brethren, I have in a figure transferred to myself and to Apollos for your sakes; that ye might learn in us not to think of men above that which is written, that no one of you be puffed up for one against another.
Now ye are full, now ye are rich, ye have reigned as kings without us: and I would to God ye did reign, that we also might reign with you.
For I think that God hath set forth us the apostles last, as it were appointed to death: for we are made a spectacle unto the world, and to angels, and to men.
And we still toil unto weariness [for our living], working hard with our own hands. When men revile us [ wound us with an accursed sting], we bless them. When we are persecuted, we take it patiently and endure it.
when people lie about us, we answer in a friendly manner. We are the world's dirt and scum, even now.
Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened. For even Christ our passover is sacrificed for us:
Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, neither with the leaven of malice and wickedness; but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.
And God hath both raised up the Lord, and will also raise up us by his own power.
Yet I would that everybody lived as I do; but each of us has his own special gift from God--one in one direction and one in another.
But if the unbelieving depart, let him depart. A brother or a sister is not under bondage in such cases: but God hath called us to peace.
I think therefore that this is good by reason of the distress that is upon us, namely, that it is good for a man to be as he is.
Now about food offered to idols: of course we know that all of us possess knowledge [concerning these matters. Yet mere] knowledge causes people to be puffed up (to bear themselves loftily and be proud), but love (affection and goodwill and benevolence) edifies and builds up and encourages one to grow [to his full stature].
But to us there is but one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we in him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by him.
But meat commendeth us not to God: for neither, if we eat, are we the better; neither, if we eat not, are we the worse.
We have the right to take a believing wife with us like the other apostles, the Lord's brothers, and Cephas, don't we?
Or isn't He really saying it for us? Yes, this is written for us, because he who plows ought to plow in hope, and he who threshes should do so in hope of sharing the crop.
If we have been planting the things of the Spirit for you, does it seem a great thing for you to give us a part in your things of this world?
If others are partakers of this authority over you, why not us? Nevertheless we have not used this authority, but suffer all things, lest we should hinder the gospel of Christ.
Now these things became examples for us, so that we will not desire evil as they did.
Neither let us commit fornication, as some of them committed, and fell in one day three and twenty thousand.
Neither let us tempt Christ, as some of them also tempted, and were destroyed of serpents.
Now these things happened to them as examples, and they were written as a warning to us, on whom the ends of the ages have come.
The cup of blessing which we take, does it not give us a part in the blood of Christ? and is not the broken bread a taking part in the body of Christ?
Because there is one bread, we who are many are one body, for all of us share that one bread.
But if we were true judges of ourselves, punishment would not come on us.
But when we are judged by the Lord, chastisement follows, to save us from being condemned along with the world.
But to each of us a manifestation of the Spirit has been granted for the common good.
But these results are all brought about by one and the same Spirit, who bestows His gifts upon each of us in accordance with His own will.
For by one Spirit all of us Jews and Greeks, slaves and free were baptized into one body and were all privileged to drink from one Spirit.
and those members of the body which we think to be more vile, these we dress with more abundant honour; and those in us who are more indecent have more honesty.
For those in us who are more honest need nothing, but God has ordered the body together, having given more abundant honour to that one which lacked,
If I [can] speak in the tongues of men and [even] of angels, but have not love (that reasoning, intentional, spiritual devotion such as is inspired by God's love for and in us), I am only a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal.
It is not conceited (arrogant and inflated with pride); it is not rude (unmannerly) and does not act unbecomingly. Love (God's love in us) does not insist on its own rights or its own way, for it is not self-seeking; it is not touchy or fretful or resentful; it takes no account of the evil done to it [it pays no attention to a suffered wrong].
And so faith, hope, love abide [faith -- "conviction and belief respecting man's relation to God and divine things; hope -- "joyful and confident expectation of eternal salvation; love -- "true affection for God and man, growing out of God's love for and in us], these three; but the greatest of these is love.
There are, I suppose, all these many [to us unknown] tongues in the world [somewhere], and none is destitute of [its own power of] expression and meaning.
If after the manner of men I have fought with beasts at Ephesus, what advantageth it me, if the dead rise not? let us eat and drink; for to morrow we die.
And just as we have borne the image of the man of dust, let us also bear the image of the man of heaven.
Let me tell you a secret. Not all of us will die, but all of us will be changed
For this perishable [part of us] must put on the imperishable [nature], and this mortal [part of us, this nature that is capable of dying] must put on immortality (freedom from death).
But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
Let everything you do be done in love (true love to God and man as inspired by God's love for us).
