Whiston(i) 1 PAUL an apostle of Jesus Christ, through the will of God, and Sosthenes a brother, 2 Unto the church of God which is at Corinth, to them that are sanctified in Christ Jesus, called saints, with all that in every place call upon the name of Jesus Christ our Lord, both theirs and ours. 3 Grace [be] unto you, and peace from God our Father, and the Lord Jesus Christ. 4 I thank my God always on your behalf, for the grace of God which is given you by Jesus Christ; 5 That in every thing ye are enriched by him, in all utterance, and all knowledge: 6 Even as the Testimony of Christ was confirmed in you. 7 So that ye come behind in no gift; waiting for the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ: 8 Who shall also confirm you unto the end, blameless, at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. 9 God [is] faithful, from whom ye were all called unto the fellowship of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord. 10 Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and there be no divisions among you; but ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind, and in the same judgment. 11 For it hath been declared unto me of you, my brethren, by those of Chloe, that there are contentions among you. 12 Now this I say, that every one of you saith, I am of Paul, and I of Apollos, and I of Cephas, and I of Christ. 13 Is Christ divided? was Paul crucified for you? or were ye baptized unto the name of Paul? 14 I thank God, that I baptized none of you, but Crispus and Gaius: 15 Lest any should say, I baptized unto mine own name. 16 And I baptized also the Household of Stephanas: besides, I know not whether I baptized any other. 17 For Christ sent me not to baptize, to but preach the gospel not with wisdom of words, lest the cross of Christ should be of none effect. 18 For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish, foolishness: but unto us who are saved, it is the power of God. 19 It is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent. 20 Where [is] the wise? where the scribe? where the disputer of this world? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of the world? 21 For after that, in the wisdom of God, the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of the preaching to save them that believe. 22 For the Jews require signs, and the Greeks seek wisdom: 23 But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumbling block, and unto the Gentiles foolishness; 24 But unto them who are called both Jews and Greeks, Christ, the power of God, and the wisdom of God. 25 Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men. 26 Therefore ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise Men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble [are chosen]. 27 But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world, to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty; 28 And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, to bring to nought things that are: 29 That no flesh should glory in the presence of God. 30 But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption: 31 That, according as it is written, He that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord.
