1 G3972 Paul, G2822 called G652 to be an apostle G2424 of Jesus G5547 Christ G1223 through G2307 the will G2316 of God, G2532 and G80 our brother G4988 Sosthenes,
2 G1577 to the assembly G2316 of God G5607 which is G1722 at G2882 Corinth; G37 those who are sanctified G1722 in G5547 Christ G2424 Jesus, G2822 called G40 to be saints, G4862 with G3956 all G1941 who call on G3686 the name G2257 of our G2962 Lord G2424 Jesus G5547 Christ G1722 in G3956 every G5117 place, G5037 both G846 theirs G2532 and G2257 ours:
3 G5485 Grace G5213 to you G2532 and G1515 peace G575 from G2316 God G2257 our G3962 Father G2532 and G2962 the Lord G2424 Jesus G5547 Christ.
4 G3842 I always G2168 thank G3450 my G2316 God G4012 concerning G5216 you, G1909 for G5485 the grace G2316 of God G3588 which was G1325 given G5213 you G5213 in G5547 Christ G2424 Jesus;
5 G3754 that G1722 in G3956 everything G4148 you were enriched G1722 in G846 him, G1722 in G3956 all G3056 speech G2532 and G3956 all G1108 knowledge;
7 G5620 so that G5209 you G5302 come behind G1722 in G3361 no G3367 G5486 gift; G553 waiting for G602 the revelation G2257 of our G2962 Lord G2424 Jesus G5547 Christ;
8 G3739 who will G2532 also G950 confirm G5209 you G2193 until G5056 the end, G410 blameless G1722 in G2250 the day G2257 of our G2962 Lord G2424 Jesus G5547 Christ.
9 G2316 God G4103 is faithful, G1223 through G3739 whom G2564 you were called G1519 into G2842 the fellowship G846 of his G5207 Son, G2424 Jesus G5547 Christ, G2257 our G2962 Lord.
10 G1161 Now G3870 I beg G5209 you, G80 brothers, G1223 through G3686 the name G2257 of our G2962 Lord, G2424 Jesus G5547 Christ, G2443 that G3004 you G3956 all G3004 speak G846 the same thing G2532 and G5600 that there be G3361 no G4978 divisions G1722 among G5213 you, G1161 but G5600 that you be G2675 perfected together G1722 in G846 the same G3563 mind G2532 and G1722 in G846 the same G1106 judgment.
11 G1063 For G1213 it has been reported G3427 to me G4012 concerning G5216 you, G3450 my G80 brothers, G5259 by G3588 those G5514 who are from Chloe's G3754 household, that G1526 there are G2054 contentions G1722 among G5213 you.
12 G1161 Now G3303 I G3004 mean G5124 this, G3754 that G1538 each one G5216 of you G3004 says, G1473 "I G3303 G3972 follow Paul," G1161 G1473 "I G625 follow Apollos," G1161 G1473 "I G2786 follow Cephas," G1161 and, G1473 "I G5547 follow Christ."
13 G3307 Is G5547 Christ G3307 divided? G3361 G4717 Was G3972 Paul G4717 crucified G5228 for G5216 you? G2228 Or G907 were you baptized G1519 into G3686 the name G3972 of Paul?
14 G2168 I thank G2316 God G3754 that G907 I baptized G3762 none G5216 of you, G1487 except G3361 G2921 Crispus G2532 and G1050 Gaius,
15 G2443 so that G3361 no G5100 one G2036 should say G3754 that G907 I had baptized G1519 you into G1699 my own G3686 name.
16 G1161 G2532 (I also G907 baptized G3624 the household G4734 of Stephanas; G3063 besides G3756 them, I don't G1492 know G1487 whether G907 I baptized G5100 any G243 other.)
17 G1063 For G5547 Christ G649 sent G3165 me G3756 not G907 to baptize, G235 but G2097 to preach the Good News — G3756 not G1722 in G4678 wisdom G3056 of words, G2443 so G3361 G4716 that the cross G5547 of Christ G2758 wouldn't be made void.
18 G1063 For G3056 the word G4716 of the cross G2076 is G3303 G3472 foolishness G3588 to those G622 who are dying, G1161 but G2254 to us G4982 who are saved G2076 it is G1411 the power G2316 of God.
19 G1063 For G1125 it is written, G622 "I will destroy G4678 the wisdom G4680 of the wise, G2532 G4907 I will bring the discernment G4908 of the discerning G114 to nothing."
20 G4226 Where G4680 is the wise? G4226 Where G1122 is the scribe? G4226 Where G4804 is the lawyer G5127 of this G165 world? G3780 Hasn't G2316 God G3471 made foolish G4678 the wisdom G5127 of this G2889 world?
21 G1063 For G1894 seeing that G1722 in G4678 the wisdom G2316 of God, G2889 the world G1223 through G4678 its wisdom G3756 didn't G1097 know G2316 God, G2316 it was God's G2106 good pleasure G1223 through G3472 the foolishness G2782 of the preaching G4982 to save G3588 those G4100 who believe.
22 G1894 For G2532 G2453 Jews G154 ask G4592 for signs, G2532 G1672 Greeks G2212 seek G4678 after wisdom,
23 G1161 but G2249 we G2784 preach G5547 Christ G4717 crucified; G4625 a stumbling block G2453 to Jews, G3303 G1161 and G3472 foolishness G1672 to Greeks,
24 G1161 but G846 to those G3588 who G2822 are called, G5037 both G2453 Jews G2532 and G1672 Greeks, G5547 Christ G1411 is the power G2316 of God G2532 and G4678 the wisdom G2316 of God.
25 G3754 Because G3474 the foolishness G2316 of God G2076 is G4680 wiser G444 than men, G2532 and G772 the weakness G2316 of God G2076 is G2478 stronger G444 than men.
26 G1063 For G991 you see G5216 your G2821 calling, G80 brothers, G3754 that G3756 not G4183 many G4680 are wise G2596 according G4561 to the flesh, G3756 not G4183 many G1415 mighty, G3756 and not G4183 many G2104 noble;
27 G235 but G2316 God G1586 chose G3474 the foolish things G2889 of the world G2443 that he might put to G2617 shame G4680 those who are wise. G2532 G2316 God G1586 chose G772 the weak things G2889 of the world, G2443 that he might put to G2617 shame G3588 the things G2478 that are strong;
28 G2532 and G1586 God chose G36 the lowly things G2889 of the world, G2532 and G3588 the things G5607 that are G1848 despised, G2532 and G3588 the things G5607 that are G3361 not, G2443 that he might bring to G2673 nothing G3588 the things G5607 that are:
30 G1161 But G1537 of G846 him, G5210 you G2075 are G1722 in G5547 Christ G2424 Jesus, G3739 who G1096 was made G2254 to us G4678 wisdom G575 from G2316 God, G5037 and G1343 righteousness G2532 and G38 sanctification, G2532 and G629 redemption:
