Deuteronomy 18:20-22

  20 H5030 But the prophet, H834 which H2102 shall presume H1696 to speak H1697 a word H8034 in my name, H6680 which I have not commanded H1696 him to speak, H1696 or that shall speak H8034 in the name H312 of other H430 gods, H5030 even that prophet H4191 shall die.
  21 H3588 And if H559 you say H3824 in your heart, H349 How H3045 shall we know H1697 the word H834 which H3068 the LORD H1696 has not spoken?
  22 H834 When H5030 a prophet H1696 speaks H8034 in the name H3068 of the LORD, H1697 if the thing H1961 follow H3808 not, nor H935 come H1697 to pass, that is the thing H834 which H3068 the LORD H1696 has not spoken, H5030 but the prophet H1696 has spoken H2087 it presumptuously: H1481 you shall not be afraid of him.

Jeremiah 23:32

  32 H2005 Behold, H5921 I am against H5012 them that prophesy H8267 false H2472 dreams, H5002 said H3068 the LORD, H5608 and do tell H5971 them, and cause my people H8582 to err H8267 by their lies, H6350 and by their lightness; H7971 yet I sent H3808 them not, nor H6680 commanded H3276 them: therefore they shall not profit H2088 this H5971 people H5002 at all, said H3068 the LORD.

Matthew 23:34

  34 G1223 Why, G5124 G2400 behold, G649 I send G4396 to you prophets, G4680 and wise G1122 men, and scribes: G615 and some of them you shall kill G4717 and crucify; G3146 and some of them shall you whip G5216 in your G4864 synagogues, G1377 and persecute G4172 them from city G4172 to city:

1 Corinthians 13:1-13

  1 G1437 Though G2980 I speak G1100 with the tongues G444 of men G32 and of angels, G2192 and have G26 not charity, G1096 I am become G2278 as sounding G5475 brass, G2228 or G214 a tinkling G2950 cymbal.
  2 G1437 And though G2192 I have G4394 the gift of prophecy, G1492 and understand G3956 all G3466 mysteries, G3956 and all G1108 knowledge; G1437 and though G2192 I have G3956 all G4102 faith, G5620 so G3179 that I could remove G3735 mountains, G2192 and have G26 not charity, G1510 I am G3762 nothing.
  3 G1437 And though G5595 I bestow G3956 all G5224 my goods G5595 to feed G4434 the poor, G1437 and though G3860 I give G4983 my body G2545 to be burned, G2192 and have G26 not charity, G5623 it profits G3762 me nothing.
  4 G26 Charity G3114 suffers G3114 long, G5541 and is kind; G26 charity G2206 envies G26 not; charity G4068 braggs G5448 not itself, is not puffed up,
  5 G807 Does not behave G2212 itself unseemly, seeks G1438 not her own, G3947 is not easily provoked, G3049 thinks G3756 no G2556 evil;
  6 G5463 Rejoices G93 not in iniquity, G4796 but rejoices G225 in the truth;
  7 G4722 Bears G3956 all G4100 things, believes G3956 all G1679 things, hopes G3956 all G5278 things, endures G3956 all things.
  8 G26 Charity G3763 never G1601 fails: G1535 but whether G4394 there be prophecies, G2673 they shall fail; G1535 whether G1100 there be tongues, G3973 they shall cease; G1535 whether G1108 there be knowledge, G2673 it shall vanish G2673 away.
  9 G1097 For we know G3313 in part, G4395 and we prophesy G3313 in part.
  10 G3752 But when G5046 that which is perfect G2064 is come, G5119 then G3313 that which is in part G2673 shall be done G2673 away.
  11 G3753 When G3516 I was a child, G2980 I spoke G3516 as a child, G5426 I understood G3516 as a child, G3049 I thought G3516 as a child: G3753 but when G1096 I became G435 a man, G2673 I put G2673 away G3516 childish things.
  12 G737 For now G991 we see G1223 through G2072 a glass, G1722 darkly; G135 G5119 but then G4383 face G4383 to face: G737 now G1097 I know G3313 in part; G5119 but then G1921 shall I know G2531 even G2532 as also G1921 I am known.
  13 G3570 And now G3306 stays G4102 faith, G1680 hope, G26 charity, G5023 these G5140 three; G3187 but the greatest G5130 of these G26 is charity.

Ephesians 4:11

  11 G1325 And he gave G3588 some, G652 apostles; G3588 and some, G4396 prophets; G3588 and some, G2099 evangelists; G3588 and some, G4166 pastors G1320 and teachers;

Amos 3:7

  7 H3588 Surely H136 the Lord H3069 GOD H6213 will do H3808 nothing, G1697 H1540 but he reveals H5475 his secret H5650 to his servants H5030 the prophets.

Matthew 7:15

  15 G4337 Beware G5578 of false G5578 prophets, G3748 which G2064 come G4263 to you in sheep’s G1742 clothing, G2081 but inwardly G727 they are ravening G3074 wolves.

Acts 2:17

  17 G1511 And it shall come G2078 to pass in the last G2250 days, G3004 said G2316 God, G1632 I will pour G4151 out of my Spirit G3956 on all G4561 flesh: G5216 and your G5207 sons G5216 and your G2364 daughters G4395 shall prophesy, G5216 and your G3495 young G3495 men G3708 shall see G3706 visions, G5216 and your G4245 old G1798 men shall dream G1797 dreams:

1 Corinthians 14:1-40

  1 G1377 Follow G26 after charity, G2206 and desire G4152 spiritual G3123 gifts, but rather G4395 that you may prophesy.
  2 G2980 For he that speaks G1100 in an unknown tongue G2980 speaks G444 not to men, G2316 but to God: G3762 for no G3762 man G191 understands G4151 him; however, in the spirit G2980 he speaks G3466 mysteries.
  3 G4395 But he that prophesies G2980 speaks G444 to men G3619 to edification, G3874 and exhortation, G3889 and comfort.
  4 G2980 He that speaks G1100 in an unknown tongue G3618 edifies G1438 himself; G4395 but he that prophesies G3618 edifies G1577 the church.
  5 G2309 I would G3956 that you all G2980 spoke G1100 with tongues G3123 but rather G4395 that you prophesied: G3187 for greater G4395 is he that prophesies G2228 than G2980 he that speaks G1100 with tongues, G1622 except G1508 G1329 he interpret, G1577 that the church G2983 may receive G3619 edifying.
  6 G3570 Now, G80 brothers, G1437 if G2064 I come G2980 to you speaking G1100 with tongues, G5101 what G5623 shall I profit G3362 you, except G2980 I shall speak G2228 to you either G602 by revelation, G2228 or G1108 by knowledge, G2228 or G4394 by prophesying, G2228 or G1322 by doctrine?
  7 G3676 And even G895 things without G895 life G1325 giving G5456 sound, G1535 whether G836 pipe G1535 or G2788 harp, G3362 except G1325 they give G1293 a distinction G5353 in the sounds, G4459 how G1097 shall it be known G3588 what G832 is piped G2228 or G2789 harped?
  8 G1437 For if G4536 the trumpet G1325 give G82 an uncertain G5456 sound, G5101 who G3903 shall prepare G4171 himself to the battle?
  9 G3779 So G2532 likewise G3362 you, except G1325 you utter G1100 by the tongue G3056 words G2154 easy G2154 to be understood, G4459 how G1097 shall it be known G3588 what G2980 is spoken? G2980 for you shall speak G1519 into G109 the air.
  10 G5118 There are, it may be, so G5118 many G1085 kinds G5456 of voices G2889 in the world, G3762 and none G880 of them is without G880 signification.
  11 G3767 Therefore G1437 if G1492 I know G1411 not the meaning G5456 of the voice, G2980 I shall be to him that speaks G915 a barbarian, G2980 and he that speaks G915 shall be a barbarian to me.
  12 G2532 Even G3779 so G1893 you, for as much G2207 as you are zealous G4151 of spiritual G2212 gifts, seek G4052 that you may excel G3619 to the edifying G1577 of the church.
  13 G1355 Why G2980 let him that speaks G1100 in an unknown tongue G4336 pray G1329 that he may interpret.
  14 G1437 For if G4336 I pray G1100 in an unknown tongue, G4151 my spirit G4336 prays, G3563 but my understanding G175 is unfruitful.
  15 G5101 What G3767 is it then? G4336 I will pray G4151 with the spirit, G4336 and I will pray G3563 with the understanding G2532 also: G5567 I will sing G4151 with the spirit, G5567 and I will sing G3563 with the understanding G2532 also.
  16 G1893 Else G1437 when G2127 you shall bless G4151 with the spirit, G4459 how G378 shall he that occupies G5117 the room G2399 of the unlearned G2046 say G281 Amen G1909 at G2169 your giving of thanks, G1894 seeing G1492 he understands G5101 not what G3004 you say?
  17 G3303 For you truly G2168 give thanks G2573 well, G2087 but the other G3618 is not edified.
  18 G2168 I thank G2316 my God, G2980 I speak G1100 with tongues G3123 more G3956 than you all:
  19 G235 Yet G1577 in the church G2309 I had rather G2980 speak G4002 five G3056 words G3563 with my understanding, G2727 that by my voice I might teach G243 others G2532 also, G2228 than G3463 ten G3463 thousand G3056 words G1100 in an unknown tongue.
  20 G80 Brothers, G3813 be not children G5424 in understanding: G235 however, G2549 in malice G3515 be you children, G5424 but in understanding G5046 be men.
  21 G3551 In the law G1125 it is written, G2084 With men of other G2084 tongues G2087 and other G5491 lips G2980 will I speak G5129 to this G2992 people; G3779 and yet for all G1522 that will they not hear G3004 me, said G2962 the LORD.
  22 G5620 Why G1100 tongues G4592 are for a sign, G4100 not to them that believe, G571 but to them that believe G4394 not: but prophesying G571 serves not for them that believe G4100 not, but for them which believe.
  23 G1437 If G3767 therefore G3650 the whole G1577 church G4905 be come G4905 together G1909 into G3588 one G846 G3956 place, and all G2980 speak G1100 with tongues, G1525 and there come G2399 in those that are unlearned, G2228 or G571 unbelievers, G2046 will they not say G3105 that you are mad?
  24 G1437 But if G3956 all G4395 prophesy, G1525 and there come G5100 in one G571 that believes G2228 not, or G2399 one unlearned, G1651 he is convinced G3956 of all, G350 he is judged G3956 of all:
  25 G3779 And thus G2927 are the secrets G2588 of his heart G1096 made G5318 manifest; G3779 and so G4098 falling G1909 down on G4383 his face G4352 he will worship G2316 God, G518 and report G2316 that God G3689 is in you of a truth.
  26 G5101 How G3767 is it then, G80 brothers? G3752 when G4905 you come G4905 together, G1538 every G2192 one of you has G5568 a psalm, G2192 has G1322 a doctrine, G2192 has G1100 a tongue, G2192 has G602 a revelation, G2192 has G2058 an interpretation. G3956 Let all G1096 things be done G3619 to edifying.
  27 G1535 If G5100 any G2980 man speak G1100 in an unknown tongue, G1417 let it be by two, G2228 or G4119 at the most G5140 by three, G3313 and that by course; G1520 and let one G1329 interpret.
  28 G1437 But if G3361 there be no G1328 interpreter, G4601 let him keep G4601 silence G1577 in the church; G2980 and let him speak G1438 to himself, G2316 and to God.
  29 G4396 Let the prophets G2980 speak G1417 two G2228 or G5140 three, G243 and let the other G1252 judge.
  30 G1437 If G601 any thing be revealed G243 to another G2521 that sits G4413 by, let the first G4601 hold G4601 his peace.
  31 G1410 For you may G3956 all G4395 prophesy G2596 one G1520 G1520 by one, G3956 that all G3129 may learn, G3956 and all G3870 may be comforted.
  32 G4151 And the spirits G4396 of the prophets G5293 are subject G4396 to the prophets.
  33 G2316 For God G181 is not the author of confusion, G1515 but of peace, G3956 as in all G1577 churches G40 of the saints.
  34 G5216 Let your G1135 women G4601 keep G4601 silence G1577 in the churches: G2010 for it is not permitted G2980 to them to speak; G5293 but they are commanded to be under G5293 obedience G2532 as also G3004 said G3551 the law.
  35 G1487 And if G2309 they will G3129 learn G5100 any G1905 thing, let them ask G435 their husbands G1722 at G3624 home: G149 for it is a shame G1135 for women G2980 to speak G1577 in the church.
  36 G2228 What? G1831 came G3056 the word G2316 of God G2228 out from you? or G2658 came G3441 it to you only?
  37 G1487 If G1536 any G1380 man think G4396 himself to be a prophet, G2228 or G4152 spiritual, G1921 let him acknowledge G1125 that the things that I write G1785 to you are the commandments G2962 of the Lord.
  38 G1487 But if G1536 any G50 man be ignorant, G50 let him be ignorant.
  39 G5620 Why, G80 brothers, G2206 covet G4395 to prophesy, G2967 and forbid G2980 not to speak G1100 with tongues.
  40 G3956 Let all G1096 things be done G2156 decently G5010 and in order.
