19 If you were of the world, the world would love its own. But because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, for this reason the world hates you.
17 But if some of the branches were broken off, and you, being a wild olive tree were grafted in among them, and became a sharer of the root and the fatness of the olive tree,
19 because the thing known of God is clearly known within them, for God revealed it to them.
11 And I saw a great white throne, and the One sitting on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled; and a place was not found for them. 12 And I saw the dead, the small and the great, standing before God. And books were opened. And another Book was opened, which is the Book of Life. And the dead were judged out of the things written in the books, according to their works. 13 And the sea gave up the dead in it. And death and Hades gave up the dead in them. And they were each judged according to their works. 14 And death and Hades were thrown into the Lake of Fire. This is the second death. 15 And if anyone was not found having been written in the Book of Life, he was thrown into the Lake of Fire.
10 In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us, and sent His Son to be a propitiation relating to our sins.
67 Therefore, Jesus said to the Twelve, Do you also wish to go? 68 Then Simon Peter answered Him, Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of everlasting life. 69 And we have believed and have known that You are the Christ, the Son of the living God. 70 Jesus answered them, Did I not choose you, the Twelve? Yet one of you is a devil! 71 But He spoke of Judas Iscariot, Simon's son, for this one was about to betray Him, being one of the Twelve.
50 This is the Bread coming down out of Heaven, that anyone may eat of it and not die. 51 I am the Living Bread that came down from Heaven. If anyone eats of this Bread, he will live forever. And indeed the bread which I will give is My flesh, which I will give for the life of the world. 52 Then the Jews argued with one another, saying, How can this one give us his flesh to eat? 53 Then Jesus said to them, Truly, truly, I say to you, except you eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink His blood, you do not have life in yourselves. 54 The one partaking of My flesh and drinking of My blood has everlasting life, and I will raise him up at the last day. 55 For My flesh is truly food, and My blood is truly drink. 56 The one partaking of My flesh and drinking of My blood abides in Me, and I in him. 57 Even as the living Father sent Me, and I live through the Father; also the one partaking Me, even that one will live through Me. 58 This is the Bread which came down out of Heaven, not as your fathers ate the manna and died; the one partaking of this Bread will live forever. 59 He said these things teaching in a synagogue in Capernaum. 60 Then many of His disciples having heard, they said, This word is hard; who is able to hear it? 61 But knowing in Himself that His disciples were murmuring about this, Jesus said to them, Does this offend you? 62 Then what if you see the Son of man going up where He was at first? 63 It is the Spirit that gives life. The flesh does not profit, nothing! The words which I speak to you are spirit and are life. 64 But there are some of you who are not believing. For Jesus knew from the beginning who they were not believing, and who was the one betraying Him. 65 And He said, Because of this, I have told you that no one is able to come to Me except it is given to him from My Father. 66 From this time many of His disciples went away into the things behind, and no longer walked with Him. 67 Therefore, Jesus said to the Twelve, Do you also wish to go? 68 Then Simon Peter answered Him, Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of everlasting life. 69 And we have believed and have known that You are the Christ, the Son of the living God. 70 Jesus answered them, Did I not choose you, the Twelve? Yet one of you is a devil! 71 But He spoke of Judas Iscariot, Simon's son, for this one was about to betray Him, being one of the Twelve.
55 For My flesh is truly food, and My blood is truly drink. 56 The one partaking of My flesh and drinking of My blood abides in Me, and I in him. 57 Even as the living Father sent Me, and I live through the Father; also the one partaking Me, even that one will live through Me. 58 This is the Bread which came down out of Heaven, not as your fathers ate the manna and died; the one partaking of this Bread will live forever. 59 He said these things teaching in a synagogue in Capernaum.
7 Then be subject to God. Resist the Devil, and he will flee from you. 8 Draw near to God, and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, sinners! And purify your hearts, double minded ones! 9 Be distressed, and mourn, and weep. Let your laughter be turned to mourning, and your joy into shame. 10 Be humbled before the Lord, and He will exalt you.
1 To the chief musician. A Psalm of David. The fool has said in his heart, There is no God! They acted corruptly; they did hatefully in deeds; there is none doing good.
1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was in the beginning with God. 3 All things came into being through Him, and without Him not even one thing came into being that has come into being. 4 In Him was life, and the life was the light of men; 5 and the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not overtake it. 6 There was a man sent from God; his name was John. 7 He came for a witness, that he might witness concerning the Light, that all might believe through Him. 8 He was not that Light, but that he might witness concerning the Light. 9 He was the true Light; He enlightens every man coming into the world. 10 He was in the world, and the world came into being through Him, yet the world did not know Him. 11 He came to His own, and His own did not receive Him. 12 But as many as received Him, to them He gave authority to become children of God, to the ones believing into His name, 13 who were born not of bloods, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but were born of God. 14 And the Word became flesh and tabernacled among us. And we beheld His glory, glory as of an only begotten from the Father, full of grace and of truth. 15 John witnesses concerning Him, and has cried out, saying, This One was He of whom I said, He coming after me has been before me, for He was preceding me. 16 And out of His fullness we all received, and grace on top of grace. 17 For the Law was given through Moses, but grace and truth came through Jesus Christ. 18 No one has seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, who is in the bosom of the Father, that One reveals Him . 19 And this is the witness of John, when the Jews sent priests and Levites that they might ask him, Who are you? 20 And he acknowledged and did not deny; yea, he acknowledged, I am not the Christ. 21 And they asked him, What, then? Are you Elijah? And he said, I am not. Are you the Prophet? And he answered, No. 22 Then they said to him, Who are you, that we may give an answer to those sending us? What do you say about yourself? 23 He said, "I am a voice crying in the wilderness:" "Make straight" "the way of the Lord," as Isaiah the prophet said. Isa. 40:3 24 And those who had been sent were of the Pharisees. 25 And they asked him and said to him, Why then do you baptize, if you are not the Christ, nor Elijah, nor the Prophet? 26 John answered them, saying, I baptize in water, but One stands in your midst whom you do not know; 27 This One it is who has come after me, who has been before me, of whom I am not worthy that I should loose the thong of His sandal. 28 These things took place in Bethabara beyond the Jordan, where John was baptizing. 29 On the morrow, John sees Jesus coming toward him and said, Behold! The Lamb of God, taking away the sin of the world! 30 This is He about whom I said, After me comes a Man who has been before me, for He was preceding me. 31 And I did not know Him; but that He be revealed to Israel, for this reason I came baptizing in water. 32 And John witnessed, saying, I have seen the Spirit coming down as a dove out of Heaven, and He abode on Him. 33 And I did not know Him, but the One sending me to baptize in water, that One said to me, On whomever you see the Spirit coming down and abiding on Him, this is the One baptizing in the Holy Spirit. 34 And I have seen and have witnessed that this One is the Son of God. 35 Again on the morrow, John and two from his disciples stood. 36 And looking at Jesus walking, he said, Behold, the Lamb of God! 37 And the two disciples heard him speaking, and they followed Jesus. 38 But having seen them following, Jesus said to them, What do you seek? And they said to Him, Rabbi (which being translated is called Teacher), where do You stay? 39 He said to them, Come and see. They went and saw where He stayed, and they remained with Him that day. And the hour was about the tenth. 40 Andrew the brother of Simon Peter was one of the two who heard from John and was following Him. 41 This one first found his own brother Simon and tells him, We have found the Messiah (which being translated is, the Christ). 42 And he led him to Jesus. And looking at him, Jesus said, You are Simon the son of Jonah; you shall be called Cephas (which translated is Peter). 43 And on the morrow, Jesus desired to go out into Galilee. And He found Philip, and says to him, Follow me! 44 And Philip was from Bethsaida, of the city of Andrew and Peter. 45 Philip finds Nathanael and said to him, We have found the One of whom Moses wrote in the Law and the Prophets, Jesus the son of Joseph, from Nazareth. 46 And Nathanael said to him, Can any good thing be out of Nazareth? Philip said to him, Come and see. 47 Jesus saw Nathanael coming toward Him and said concerning him, Behold, truly an Israelite in whom is no guile! 48 Nathanael said to Him, From where do You know me? Jesus answered and said to him, Before Philip called, you being under the fig tree, I saw you. 49 Nathanael answered and said to Him, Rabbi, You are the Son of God; You are the King of Israel. 50 Jesus answered and said to him, Because I said to you I saw you under the fig tree, do you believe? You will see greater things than these. 51 And He says to him, Truly, truly, I say to you, from now on you will see Heaven opened, and "the angels of God ascending and descending" on the Son of man. Gen. 28:12
12 Indeed, I tell you truly, He that believes in Me, the works which I do, that one shall do also, and greater than these he will do, because I go to My Father.
22 But become doers of the Word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. 23 Because if anyone is a hearer of the Word, and not a doer, this one is like a man studying his natural face in a mirror; 24 for he studied himself, and has gone away, and immediately he forgot of what kind he was. 25 But the one looking into the perfect law of liberty, and continuing in it, this one not having become a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this one will be blessed in his doing.
6 And we charge you, brothers, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, to draw yourselves back from every brother walking in a disorderly way, and not according to the teaching which you received from us.
30 The man answered and said to them, For there is a marvel in this, that you do not know from where He is, and He opened my eyes. 31 But we know that God does not hear sinful ones, but if anyone is God fearing, and does His will, He hears that one. 32 From the beginning of the age it was never heard that anyone opened the eyes of one having been born blind. 33 If this One was not from God, He could not do anything.
12 But to the rest I say, not the Lord, if any brother has an unbelieving wife, and she consents to live with him, let him not leave her.
16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that everyone believing into Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
12 But to the rest I say, not the Lord, if any brother has an unbelieving wife, and she consents to live with him, let him not leave her. 13 And a woman who has an unbelieving husband, and he consents to live with her, let her not leave him. 14 For the unbelieving husband has been sanctified by the wife, and the unbelieving wife has been sanctified by the husband; else, then, your children are unclean, but now they are holy. 15 But if the unbelieving one separates, let them be separated; the brother or the sister is not in bondage in such matters; but God has called us in peace. 16 For what do you know, wife, whether you will save the husband? Or what do you know, husband, whether you will save the wife? 17 Only as God has divided to each, each as the Lord has called, so let him walk. So I command in the churches. 18 Was anyone called having been circumcised? Do not be uncircumcised. Was anyone called in uncircumcision? Do not be circumcised. 19 Circumcision is nothing, and uncircumcision is nothing, but the keeping of God's commands. 20 Each one in the calling in which he was called, in this remain. 21 Were you called as a slave? It does not matter to you. But if you are able to be free, rather use it . 22 For the one called a slave in the Lord is a freed man of the Lord. And likewise, the one called a free man is a slave of Christ. 23 You were redeemed with a price; do not become slaves of men. 24 Each in whatever state called, brothers, in this remain with God. 25 But about virgins, I have no command of the Lord. But I give judgment, as having received mercy by the Lord to be faithful. 26 Then I think this to be good, because of the present necessity: that it is good for a man to be thus. 27 Have you been bound to a wife? Do not seek to be released. Have you been released from a wife? Do not seek a wife. 28 But if you also marry, you do not sin. And if the virgin marries, she does not sin. But such will have trouble in the flesh. But I am sparing you. 29 But I say this, brothers, that the time has been cut short. For the rest is, that even the ones having wives should be as not having, 30 and those weeping as not weeping, and those rejoicing as not rejoicing, and those buying as not possessing, 31 and those using this world as not abusing it; for the mode of this world is passing away. 32 But I desire you to be without care. The unmarried one cares for the things of the Lord, how to please the Lord; 33 but the one marrying cares for the things of the world, how to please the wife. 34 The wife and the virgin are different. The unmarried one cares for the things of the Lord, that she be holy in both body and spirit. But the married one cares for the things of the world, how to please the husband. 35 And I say this for your advantage, not that I put a snare before you, but for the fitting thing, and waiting on the Lord without distraction. 36 But if anyone thinks it behaving indecently toward his virginity (if he is beyond his prime, and so it ought to be), let him do what he desires; he does not sin; let them marry. 37 But he who stands firm in heart, not having necessity, but has authority as to his own will, and has judged this in his heart, to keep his virginity; he does well. 38 So that he that gives in marriage does well, and he that does not give in marriage does better. 39 A wife is bound by law for as long a time as her husband lives; but if her husband sleeps, she is free to be married to whomever she desires, only in the Lord. 40 But she is happier if she remains so, according to my judgment. And I think I also have the Spirit of God.
1 But concerning the sacrifices to idols, we know that we all have knowledge. Knowledge puffs up, but love builds up. 2 But if anyone thinks to know anything, he still has known nothing as he ought to know. 3 But if anyone loves God, he has been known by Him. 4 Then concerning the eating of things sacrificed to idols, we know that an idol is nothing in the world, and that there is no other God except one. 5 For even if some are called gods, either in the heavens or on the earth; (even as there are many gods, and many lords); 6 but to us is one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we for Him; and one Jesus Christ, through whom are all things, and we by Him. 7 But the knowledge is not in all; but some being aware of the idol eat as an idolatrous sacrifice until now; and their conscience being weak is defiled. 8 But food will not commend us to God. For neither if we eat do we excel, nor if we do not eat are we behind. 9 But be careful lest this authority of yours become a cause of stumbling to the weak ones. 10 For if anyone sees you, the one having knowledge, sitting in an idol-temple, will not the weak one's conscience be lifted up so as to eat things sacrificed to idols? 11 And on your knowledge the weak brother will fall, he for whom Christ died. 12 And sinning in this way against your brothers, and wounding their conscience, being weak, you sin against Christ. 13 On account of this, if food offends my brother, I will not at all eat flesh forever, so that I do not offend my brother.
1 Am I not an apostle? Am I not free? Have I not seen our Lord Jesus Christ? Are you not my work in the Lord? 2 If I am not an apostle to others, yet I am indeed to you; for you are the seal of my apostleship in the Lord. 3 My defense to those examining me is this: 4 Have we not authority to eat and to drink? 5 Have we not authority to lead about a sister, a wife, as the rest of the apostles also, and Cephas, and the Lord's brothers do ? 6 Or is it only Barnabas and I who have no authority to quit work? 7 Who serves as a soldier at his own wages at any time? Who plants a vineyard and does not eat of its fruit? Or who shepherds a flock and does not eat of the milk of the flock? 8 Do I speak these things according to man, or does not the Law say these things also? 9 For it has been written in the Law of Moses, "You shall not muzzle an ox treading out grain." Deut. 25:4 Is it that it matters to God as to oxen? 10 Or does He say it altogether because of us? It is written because of us, so that the one plowing ought to plow in hope, and the one threshing in hope to partake of hope. 11 If we have sowed spiritual things to you, is it a great thing if we shall reap of your fleshly things? 12 If others have a share of the authority over you, should not rather we? But we did not use this authority, but we endured all things, so that we might not give a hindrance to the gospel of Christ. 13 Do you not know that those who have labored eat of the holy things of the temple? Those attending on the altar partake with the altar. 14 So also the Lord ordained those announcing the gospel to live from the gospel. 15 But I have not used one of these. And I do not write these things that it be so with me. For it is good to me rather to die than that anyone nullify my glorying. 16 For if I announce the gospel, no glory is to me; for necessity is laid on me, and it is woe to me if I do not announce the gospel. 17 For if I do this willingly, I have a reward; but if unwillingly, I am entrusted with a stewardship. 18 What then is my reward? That announcing the gospel I may make the gospel of Christ free, so as not to use fully my authority in the gospel. 19 For being free of all, I enslaved myself to all, that I might gain the more. 20 And I became as a Jew to the Jews, that I might gain Jews; to those under Law as under Law, that I might gain those under Law; 21 to those without Law as without Law (not being without law of God, but under the law of Christ), that I might gain those without Law. 22 I became to the weak as weak, that I might gain the weak. To all I have become all things, that in any and every way I might save some. 23 And I do this for the gospel, that I might become a fellow partaker of it. 24 Do you not know that those running in a stadium indeed all run, but one receives the prize? So run that you may obtain. 25 But everyone striving controls himself in all things. Then those truly that they may receive a corruptible crown, but we an incorruptible. 26 So I run accordingly, as not uncertainly; so I fight, as not beating air; 27 but I buffet my body and lead it captive, lest proclaiming to others I myself might be rejected.
1 And I do not want you to be ignorant, brothers, that our fathers were all under the cloud, and all passed through the Sea. 2 And all were baptized to Moses in the cloud, and in the Sea, 3 and all ate the same spiritual food. 4 And all drank the same spiritual drink; for they drank of the spiritual rock following, and that Rock was Christ. 5 Yet God was not pleased with most of them, "for they were scattered in the deserted place." Num. 14:16 6 But these things became examples for us, so that we may not be lusters after evil, even as those indeed lusted. 7 Neither be idolaters, even as some of them, as it has been written, "The people sat down to eat and drink, and stood up to play." Ex. 32:6 8 Nor should we commit fornication, as some of them fornicated, and twenty three thousand fell in one day. 9 Neither over-tempt Christ, as some of them tempted, and perished by serpents. 10 Neither should you murmur, as also some of them murmured, and perished by the destroyer. 11 And all these things happened to those as examples, and it was written for our warning, on whom the ends of the ages have come. 12 So that he that thinks to stand, let him be careful that he not fall. 13 No temptation has taken you except what is human; but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted above what you are able. But with the temptation, He will also make the way out, so that you may be able to bear it . 14 On account of this, flee from idolatry, my beloved. 15 I speak as to prudent ones; you judge what I say. 16 The cup of blessing that we bless, is it not a partaking of the blood of Christ? The bread which we break, is it not a partaking of the body of Christ? 17 Because we, the many, are one bread, one body, for we all partake of the one bread. 18 Look at Israel according to flesh; are not those eating the sacrifices partakers of the altar? 19 What then do I say, that an idol is anything, or that an idolatrous sacrifice is anything? 20 But the things the nations sacrifice, " they sacrifice to demons, and not to God." Deut. 32:17 But I do not want you to become sharers of demons; 21 you cannot drink the cup of the Lord and a cup of demons; you cannot partake of the table of the Lord, and a table of demons. 22 Or do we provoke the Lord to jealousy? Are we stronger than He? Deut. 32:21 23 All things are lawful to me, but not all things profit. All things are lawful to me, but not all things build up. 24 Let no one seek the things of himself, but each one that of the other. 25 Eat everything being sold in a meat market, examining nothing because of conscience, 26 for "the earth is the Lord's, and the fullness of it." Psa. 24:1 27 And if any of the unbelievers invite you, and you desire to go, eat everything set before you, examining nothing because of conscience. 28 But if anyone tells you, This is slain in sacrifice to idols, do not eat, because of that one pointing it out, and the conscience; for "the earth is the Lord's, and the fullness of it." Psa. 24:1 29 But I say conscience, not that of himself, but that of the other. For why is my freedom judged by another's conscience? 30 But if I partake by grace, why am I evil spoken of because of what I give thanks for ? 31 Then whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all things to the glory of God. 32 Be without offense both to Jews and Greeks, and to the church of God. 33 Even as I also please all in all things, not seeking my own advantage, but that of the many, that they may be saved.
1 Be imitators of me, as I also of Christ. 2 But I praise you, brothers, that in all things you have remembered me, and even as I delivered to you, you hold fast the doctrines. 3 But I want you to know that Christ is the Head of every man, and the man is the head of a woman, and God is the head of Christ. 4 Every man praying or prophesying, having anything down over his head shames his Head. 5 And every woman praying or prophesying with the head unveiled dishonors her head, for it is the same as being shaved. 6 For if a woman is not veiled, let her also be shorn. But if it is shameful for a woman to be shorn, or to be shaved, let her be veiled. 7 For truly a man ought not to have the head covered, being the image and glory of God. But woman is the glory of man; 8 for man is not of the woman, but woman of man; 9 for also man was not created for the sake of the woman, but woman for the sake of the man; 10 because of this, the woman ought to have authority on the head, because of the angels. 11 However, man is not apart from woman, nor woman apart from man, in the Lord. 12 For as the woman is out of the man, so also the man through the woman; but all things from God. 13 You judge among yourselves: is it fitting for a woman to pray to God unveiled? 14 Or does not nature herself teach you that if a man indeed wears long hair, it is a dishonor to him? 15 But if a woman wears her hair long, it is a glory to her; because the hair has been given to her corresponding to a veil. 16 But if anyone thinks to be contentious, we do not have such a custom, nor the churches of God. 17 But enjoining this, I do not praise you, because you come together not for the better, but for the worse. 18 Indeed, first, I hear divisions to be among you when you come together in the church. And I believe some part. 19 For there must also be heresies among you, so that the approved ones may become revealed among you. 20 Then you coming together into one place, it is not to eat the Lord's supper. 21 For each one takes his own supper first in the eating; and one is hungry, and another drunken. 22 For do you not have houses to eat and to drink? Or do you despise the church of God, and shame those who have not? What do I say to you? Shall I praise you for this? I do not praise. 23 For I received from the Lord what I also delivered to you, that the Lord Jesus in the night in which He was betrayed took bread; 24 and giving thanks, He broke and said, Take, eat; this is My body which is broken on behalf of you; this do in remembrance of Me. 25 In the same way the cup also, after supping, saying, This cup is the New Covenant in My blood; as often as you drink, do this in remembrance of Me. See Luke 22:19, 20 26 For as often as you may eat this bread, and drink this cup, you solemnly proclaim the death of the Lord, until He shall come. 27 So that whoever should eat this bread, or drink the cup of the Lord, unworthily, that one will be guilty of the body and of the blood of the Lord. 28 But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of the bread, and let him drink of the cup; 29 for he eating and drinking unworthily eats and drinks judgment to himself, not discerning the body of the Lord. 30 For this reason many among you are weak and feeble, and many sleep. 31 For if we discerned ourselves, we would not be judged. 32 But being judged, we are corrected by the Lord, that we not be condemned with the world. 33 So that, my brothers, coming together to eat, wait for one another. 34 But if anyone is hungry, let him eat at home, that you may not come together for judgment. And the other things I will set in order whenever I come.
1 But concerning the spiritual things, brothers, I do not wish you to be ignorant. 2 You know that being led away, you nations were led to dumb idols. 3 Because of this I make known to you that no one speaking by the Spirit of God says, Jesus is a curse. And no one is able to say Jesus is Lord, except by the Holy Spirit. 4 And there are differences of gifts, but the same Spirit; 5 and there are differences of ministries, yet the same Lord. 6 And there are differences of workings, but the same God is working all things in all. 7 And to each one is given the showing forth of the Spirit to our profit. 8 For through the Spirit is given to one a word of wisdom, and to another a word of knowledge, according to the same Spirit; 9 and to another, faith by the same Spirit, and to another, gifts of healing by the same Spirit, 10 and to another, workings of powers, and to another, prophecy, and to another, discerning of spirits, and to another, kinds of languages, and to another, interpretation of languages. 11 But the one and the same Spirit works all these things, distributing separately to each as He wills. 12 Even as the body is one, and has many members, but all the members of the one body, being many, are one body, so also is Christ. 13 For also we all were baptized by one Spirit into one body, whether Jews or Greeks, whether slaves or free, even all were given to drink into one Spirit. 14 For also the body is not one member, but many. 15 If the foot says, Because I am not a hand, I am not of the body, on account of this, is it not of the body? 16 And if the ear says, Because I am not an eye, I am not of the body, on account of this, is it not of the body? 17 If all the body were an eye, where would be the hearing? If all hearing, where the smelling? 18 But now God set the members, each one of them, in the body, even as He desired. 19 But if all was one member, where would the body be ? 20 But now, indeed, many are the members, but one body. 21 And the eye is not able to say to the hand, I have no need of you; or again the head to the feet, I have no need of you. 22 But much rather the members of the body seeming to be weaker are necessary. 23 And those of the body we think to be less honorable, to these we put more abundant honor around them . And our unpresentable members have more abundant propriety. 24 But our presentable members have no need. But God tempered the body together, giving more abundant honor to the member having need, 25 that there not be division in the body, but that the members might have the same care for one another. 26 And if one member suffers, all the members suffer with it . If one member is glorified, all the members rejoice with it . 27 And you are Christ's body, and members in part. 28 And God placed some in the church: firstly apostles; secondly, prophets; thirdly, teachers; then works of power; then gifts of healing, helps, governings, kinds of languages. 29 Are all apostles? All prophets? All teachers? All workers of power? 30 Do all have gifts of healing? Do all speak languages? Do all interpret? 31 But zealously strive after the better gifts. And yet I show you a way according to excellence:
1 If I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but I do not have love, I have become as sounding brass or a clanging cymbal. 2 And if I have prophecies, and know all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith so as to move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. 3 And if I give out all my goods, and if I deliver my body that I be burned, but I do not have love, I am not profited anything. 4 Love has patience, is kind; love is not envious; love is not vain, is not puffed up; 5 does not behave indecently, does not pursue its own things, is not easily provoked, thinks no evil; 6 does not rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices in the truth. 7 Love quietly covers all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. 8 Love never fails. But if there are prophecies, they will be caused to cease; if tongues, they shall cease; if knowledge, it will be caused to cease. 9 For we know in part, and we prophesy in part; 10 but when the perfect thing comes, then that which is in part will be caused to cease. 11 When I was an infant, I spoke as an infant, I thought as an infant, I reasoned as an infant. But when I became a man, I caused to cease the things of the infant. 12 For now we see through a mirror in dimness, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then I will fully know even as I also was fully known. 13 And now faith, hope, and love, these three things remain; but the greatest of these is love.
1 Pursue love, and seek eagerly the spiritual things, but rather that you may prophesy. 2 For the one speaking in a tongue does not speak to men, but to God, for no one hears, but in spirit he speaks mysteries. 3 But the one prophesying to men speaks for building up, and encouragement, and comfort. 4 The one speaking in a tongue builds himself up, but he prophesying builds up a church. 5 And I wish all of you to speak in languages, but rather that you may prophesy. For the one prophesying is greater than the one speaking in tongues, unless he interpret that the church may receive building up. 6 But now, brothers, if I come to you speaking in tongues, what will I profit you, except I speak to you either in revelation, or in knowledge, or in prophecy, or in teaching? 7 Yet lifeless things giving a sound, whether flute or harp, if they do not give a distinction in the sound, how will it be known what is being piped or harped? 8 For also if a trumpet gives an uncertain sound, who will get himself ready for war? 9 So also you, if you do not give a clear word through the language, how will it be known what is being said? For you will be speaking into air. 10 So it may be many kinds of sounds are in the world, and not one is without distinct sound. 11 If, then, I do not know the power of the sound, I will be a foreigner to the one speaking, and he speaking in me a foreigner. 12 So also you, since you are zealots of spiritual things, seek to build up the church that you may abound. 13 So then, the one speaking in a language, let him pray that he may interpret. 14 For if I pray in a tongue, my spirit prays, but my mind is unfruitful. 15 What then is it? I will pray with the spirit, and I will also pray with the mind; I will sing with the spirit, and I will also sing with the mind. 16 Else, if you bless in the spirit, the one occupying the place of the unlearned, how will he say the amen at your giving of thanks, since he does not know what you say? 17 For you truly give thanks well, but the other is not built up. 18 I thank my God that I speak more languages than all of you. 19 But in a church I desire to speak five words with my mind, that I may also instruct others, than myriads of words in a foreign language. 20 Brothers, do not be children in your minds, but in malice be like infants, and in your minds be mature. 21 It has been written in the Law, "By other tongues" and "by other lips" "I will speak to this people," "and even so they will not hear" Me, says the Lord." Isa. 28:11, 12 22 So that tongues are not a sign to those believing, but to those not believing. But prophecy is not to those not believing, but to those believing. 23 Then if the whole church comes together, and all speak in languages, and uninstructed ones or unbelievers come in, will they not say that you rave? 24 But if all prophesy, and some unbeliever or one not instructed comes in, he is convicted by all, he is judged by all. 25 And so the secrets of his heart become revealed; and so, falling on his face, he will worship God, declaring that God is truly among you. 26 Then what is it, brothers? When you come together, each one of you has a psalm, he has a teaching, he has a language, he has a revelation, he has an interpretation. Let all things be for building up. 27 If one speaks in a language, let it be by two or three at the most, and in turn, also let one interpret. 28 And if there is no interpreter, let him be silent in church, and let him speak to himself and to God. 29 And if there are two or three prophets, let them speak, and let the others discern. 30 But if a revelation is revealed to another sitting by, let the first be silent. 31 For you can all prophesy one by one, that all may learn, and all may be encouraged. 32 And the spirits of prophets are subject to prophets. 33 For God is not God of confusion, but of peace, as in all the churches of the saints. 34 Let your women be silent in the churches, for it is not allowed to them to speak, but to be in subjection, as also the Law says. 35 But if they desire to learn anything, let them question their husbands at home; for it is a shame for a woman to speak in a church. 36 Or did the Word of God go out from you? Or did it reach only to you? 37 If anyone thinks to be a prophet, or a spiritual one, let him recognize the things I write to you, that they are a command of the Lord. 38 But if any be ignorant, let him be ignorant. 39 So then, brothers, seek eagerly to prophesy, and do not forbid to speak in languages. 40 And let all things be done decently and in order.
1 But, brothers, I reveal to you the gospel which I preached to you, which you also received, in which you also stand, 2 by which you also are being kept safe, if you hold fast the word which I preached to you, unless you believed in vain. 3 For I delivered to you in the first place what I also received, that Christ died for our sins, according to the Scriptures, 4 and that He was buried, and that He was raised the third day, according to the Scriptures, 5 and that He appeared to Peter, and then to the Twelve. 6 Then He appeared to over five hundred brothers at once, of whom the most remain until now, but some also fell asleep. 7 Then He was seen by James, then by all the apostles; 8 and last of all, even as if to one born out of time, He was also seen by me. 9 For I am the least of the apostles, who am not sufficient to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the church of God. 10 But by the grace of God I am what I am, and His grace which was toward me has not been without fruit, but I labored more abundantly than all of them, yet not I, but the grace of God with me. 11 Then whether they or I, so we preach, and so you believed. 12 But if Christ is proclaimed, that He was raised from the dead, how do some among you say that there is not a resurrection of the dead? 13 But if there is not a resurrection of the dead, neither has Christ been raised. 14 But if Christ has not been raised, then our proclamation is worthless, and your faith is also worthless. 15 And also we are found to be false witnesses of God, because we witnessed as to God that He raised Christ, whom He did not raise, if then dead ones are not raised. 16 For if the dead are not raised, Christ has not been raised. 17 But if Christ has not been raised, your faith is foolish; you are still in your sins. 18 And then those that fell asleep in Christ were lost. 19 If we only have hope in Christ in this life, we are of all men most miserable. 20 But now Christ has been raised from the dead; He became the firstfruit of those having fallen asleep. 21 For since death is through man, also through a Man is a resurrection of the dead; 22 for as in Adam all die, so also in Christ all will be made alive. 23 But each in his own order: Christ, the firstfruit, afterward those of Christ at His coming. 24 Then is the end, when He delivers the kingdom to God, even the Father, when He makes to cease all rule and all authority and power. 25 for it is right for Him to reign until He puts all the enemies under His feet; Psa. 110:1 26 the last enemy made to cease is death. 27 For "He subjected all things under His feet;" but when He says that all things have been subjected, it is plain that it excepts Him who has subjected all things to Him. Psa. 8:6 28 But when all things are subjected to Him, then the Son Himself also will be subjected to the One who has subjected all things to Him, that God may be all things in all. 29 Otherwise, what will they do, those being baptized on behalf of the dead? If the dead are not at all raised, why indeed are they baptized on behalf of the dead? 30 Why are we also in danger every hour? 31 Day by day I die, by your boasting, which I have in Christ Jesus our Lord. 32 If according to man I fought with beasts in Ephesus, what the profit to me if the dead are not raised? ("Let us eat and drink, for tomorrow we die.") Isa. 22:13 33 Do not be led astray; bad companionships ruin good habits. 34 Be righteously awake, and do not sin; for some have ignorance of God. I speak to your shame. 35 But someone will say, How are the dead raised? And with what body do they come? 36 Foolish one! What you sow is not made alive unless it dies. 37 And what you sow, you do not sow the body that is going to be, but a bare grain, (it may be of wheat, or of some of the rest), 38 and God gives it a body according as He willed, and to each of the seeds its own body. 39 Not every flesh is the same flesh, but one flesh of men, and another flesh of beasts, and another of fish, and another of birds. 40 And there are heavenly bodies, and earthly bodies. But the glory of the heavenly is truly different, and that of the earthly different; 41 one glory of the sun, and another glory of the moon, and another glory of the stars; for star differs from star in glory. 42 So also the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in corruption, it is raised in incorruption. 43 It is sown in dishonor, it is raised in glory. It is sown in weakness, it is raised in power. 44 It is sown a natural body, it is raised a spiritual body; there is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body. 45 So also it has been written, "The" first "man", Adam, "became a living soul;" the last Adam a life-giving Spirit. Gen. 2:7 46 But not the spiritual first, but the natural; afterward the spiritual. 47 The first man was out of earth, earthy. The second Man was the Lord out of Heaven. Gen. 2:7 48 Such the earthy man, such also the earthy ones. And such the heavenly Man, such also the heavenly ones. 49 And as we bore the image of the earthy man, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly Man . 50 And I say this, brothers, that flesh and blood is not able to inherit the kingdom of God, nor does corruption inherit incorruption. 51 Behold, I speak a mystery to you: we shall not all fall asleep, but we shall all be changed. 52 In a moment, in a glance of an eye, at the last trumpet; for a trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall all be changed. 53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. 54 But when this corruptible shall put on incorruption, and this mortal shall put on immortality, then will take place the word that has been written, "Death was swallowed up in victory." Isa. 25:8 55 "O death, where is your sting? Hades, where is your victory?" Hos. 13:14 56 Now the sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law; 57 but thanks be to God who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ! 58 So that, my beloved brothers, you be firm, immovable, abounding in the work of the Lord always, knowing that your labor is not without fruit in the Lord.
1 And about the collection for the saints, as I charged the churches of Galatia, so also you do. 2 On the first of a week, let each of you put by himself, storing up whatever he is prospered, that there not be collections then when I come. 3 And when I arrive, whomever you approve through these epistles, I will send to carry your grace to Jerusalem. 4 And if it is suitable for me to go also, they shall go with me. 5 But I will come to you when I go through Macedonia. For I am going through Macedonia. 6 And possibly I will stay with you, or even spend the winter, that you may set me forward wherever I may go. 7 For I do not desire to see you now in passage, but I am hoping to remain some time with you, if the Lord permits. 8 But I will remain in Ephesus until Pentecost. 9 For a door opened to me, great and effective, and many are opposing. 10 But if Timothy comes, see that he is with you without fear; for he works the work of the Lord, even as I. 11 Then do not let any despise him, but set him forward in peace, that he may come to me; for I am waiting for him with the brothers. 12 And concerning the brother Apollos, I much urged him that he come to you with the brothers, but it was not altogether his will that he come now. But he will come when he has opportunity. 13 Watch! Stand fast in the faith! Be men! Be strong! 14 Let all your things be in love. 15 But I exhort you, brothers. You know the house of Stephanas, that it is the firstfruit of Achaia, and they appointed themselves to ministry to the saints. 16 See that you also may submit to such ones, and to everyone working and laboring with me . 17 And I rejoice at the coming of Stephanas, and of Fortunatus and Achaicus, because these supplied your lack. 18 For they refreshed my spirit and yours. Then recognize such ones. 19 The churches of Asia greet you. Aquila and Priscilla much greet you in the Lord, with the church in their house. 20 The brothers all greet you. Greet one another with a holy kiss. 21 The greeting with my hand, Paul. 22 If anyone does not love the Lord Jesus Christ, let him be a curse. The Lord comes! 23 The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ be with you. 24 My love be with all of you in Christ Jesus. Amen.
4 in whom the god of this age has blinded the thoughts of the unbelieving, so that the brightness of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, should not dawn on them.
21 Not everyone who says to Me, Lord, Lord, will enter into the kingdom of Heaven, but the ones who do the will of My Father in Heaven. 22 Many will say to Me in that day, Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name do many works of power? 23 And then I will declare to them, I never knew you; "depart from Me, those working lawlessness!" Psa. 6:8
9 I wrote to you in the letter not to associate with fornicators; 10 and not altogether with the fornicators of this world, or with the covetous, or with plunderers, or with idolaters, since then you must go out of the world. 11 But now I wrote to you not to associate intimately; if anyone is called a brother and is either a fornicator, or a covetous one, or an idolater, or a reviler, or a drunkard, or a plunderer, with such a one not to eat. 12 For what is it to me also to judge the ones outside? Do you not judge those inside? 13 But God will judge the ones outside. "And you shall put out the evil one from you." Deut. 17:7
33 Do not be led astray; bad companionships ruin good habits.
14 Do not be unequally yoked with unbelievers. For what partnership does righteousness have with lawlessness? And what fellowship does light have with darkness?
9 Everyone transgressing and not abiding in the doctrine of Christ does not have God. The one abiding in the doctrine of Christ, this one has the Father and the Son. 10 If anyone comes to you and does not bear this doctrine, do not receive him into the house, and do not speak a greeting to him. 11 For the one speaking a greeting shares in his evil works.
