1 Corinthians 3
- And *I*, brethren, have not been able to speak to you as to spiritual, but as to fleshly; as to babes in Christ.
- I have given you milk to drink, not meat, for ye have not yet been able, nor indeed are ye yet able;
- for ye are yet carnal. For whereas [there are] among you emulation and strife, are ye not carnal, and walk according to man?
- For when one says, *I* am of Paul, and another, *I* of Apollos, are ye not men?
- Who then is Apollos, and who Paul? Ministering servants, through whom ye have believed, and as the Lord has given to each.
- *I* have planted; Apollos watered; but God has given the increase.
- So that neither the planter is anything, nor the waterer; but God the giver of the increase.
- But the planter and the waterer are one; but each shall receive his own reward according to his own labour.
- For we are God's fellow-workmen; ye are God's husbandry, God's building.
- According to the grace of God which has been given to me, as a wise architect, I have laid the foundation, but another builds upon it. But let each see how he builds upon it.
- For other foundation can no man lay besides that which [is] laid, which is Jesus Christ.
- Now if any one build upon [this] foundation, gold, silver, precious stones, wood, grass, straw,
- the work of each shall be made manifest; for the day shall declare [it], because it is revealed in fire; and the fire shall try the work of each what it is.
- If the work of any one which he has built upon [the foundation] shall abide, he shall receive a reward.
- If the work of any one shall be consumed, he shall suffer loss, but *he* shall be saved, but so as through [the] fire.
- Do ye not know that ye are [the] temple of God, and [that] the Spirit of God dwells in you?
- If any one corrupt the temple of God, *him* shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, and such are *ye*.
- Let no one deceive himself: if any one thinks himself to be wise among you in this world, let him become foolish, that he may be wise.
- For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God; for it is written, He who takes the wise in their craftiness.
- And again, [The] Lord knows the reasonings of the wise that they are vain.
- So that let no one boast in men; for all things are yours.
- Whether Paul, or Apollos, or Cephas, or [the] world, or life, or death, or things present, or things coming, all are yours;
- and *ye* [are] Christ's, and Christ [is] God's.
1 Corinthians 4
- Let a man so account of us as servants of Christ, and stewards of [the] mysteries of God.
- Here, further, it is sought in stewards, that a man be found faithful.
- But for me it is the very smallest matter that I be examined of you or of man's day. Nor do I even examine myself.
- For I am conscious of nothing in myself; but I am not justified by this: but he that examines me is the Lord.
- So that do not judge anything before [the] time, until the Lord shall come, who shall also both bring to light the hidden things of darkness, and shall make manifest the counsels of hearts; and then shall each have [his] praise from God.
- Now these things, brethren, I have transferred, in their application, to myself and Apollos, for your sakes, that ye may learn in us the [lesson of] not [letting your thoughts go] above what is written, that ye may not be puffed up one for [such a] one against another.
- For who makes thee to differ? and what hast thou which thou hast not received? but if also thou hast received, why boastest thou as not receiving?
- Already ye are filled; already ye have been enriched; ye have reigned without us; and I would that ye reigned, that *we* also might reign with you.
- For I think that God has set us the apostles for the last, as appointed to death. For we have become a spectacle to the world, both to angels and men.
- *We* [are] fools for Christ's sake, but *ye* prudent in Christ: *we* weak, but *ye* strong: *ye* glorious, but *we* in dishonour.
- To the present hour we both hunger and thirst, and are in nakedness, and buffeted, and wander without a home,
- and labour, working with our own hands. Railed at, we bless; persecuted, we suffer [it];
- insulted, we entreat: we are become as [the] offscouring of the world, [the] refuse of all, until now.
- Not [as] chiding do I write these things to you, but as my beloved children I admonish [you].
- For if ye should have ten thousand instructors in Christ, yet not many fathers; for in Christ Jesus *I* have begotten you through the glad tidings.
- I entreat you therefore, be my imitators.
- For this reason I have sent to you Timotheus, who is my beloved and faithful child in [the] Lord, who shall put you in mind of my ways [as] they [are] in Christ, according as I teach everywhere in every assembly.
- But some have been puffed up, as if I were not coming to you;
- but I will come quickly to you, if the Lord will; and I will know, not the word of those that are puffed up, but the power.
- For the kingdom of God [is] not in word, but in power.
- What will ye? that I come to you with a rod; or in love, and [in] a spirit of meekness?
