1 Corinthians 12:1-31

1 But concerning spiritual gifts, brethren, I do not wish you to be ignorant. 2 You know that you were Gentiles, carried away to those dumb idols, as you might be led. 3 For this reason, I make known to you, that no one, speaking by the Spirit of God, calls Jesus accursed: and no one can say that Jesus is Lord, but by the Holy Spirit. 4 Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit; 5 and there are diversities of ministries, but the same Lord; 6 and there are diversities of operations, but the same God, who makes them all effectual in all. 7 But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to each one, for the good of all. 8 For to one is given, by the Spirit, the word of wisdom; to another, the word of knowledge, by the same Spirit; 9 to another, faith, by the same Spirit; to another, gifts of healing, by the same Spirit; 10 to another, the working of mighty deeds; to another, prophecy; to another, the discerning of spirits; to another, different kinds of tongues; to another, the interpretation of tongues. 11 But all these, the one and the same Spirit makes effectual, distributing to each, respectively, as he wills. 12 For as the body is one, and has many members, and all the members of the body, being many, are one body, so also is the Christ. 13 For by one Spirit we all were immersed into one body, whether Jews or Greeks, whether bond or free; and we all have been made to drink of one Spirit. 14 For the body is not one member, but many. 15 If the foot shall say: Because I am not the hand, I am not of the body, is it, for this reason, no part of the body? 16 And if the ear shall say: Because I am not the eye, I am not of the body, is it, for this reason, no part of the body? 17 If the whole body were an eye, where were the hearing? If the whole were hearing, where were the smelling? 18 But now God has placed the members, each of them, in the body, as it has pleased him. 19 And if they were all one member, where were the body? 20 But now there are many members, but one body. 21 The eye can not 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 more are those members of the body necessary, which seem to be more feeble. 23 And those members of the body, which, we think, are less honorable, around these we place the more abundant honor; and our uncomely members have the more abundant comeliness: 24 for our comely members have no need. But God has so arranged the body, giving more abundant honor to that part which is deficient, 25 that there may be no schism in the body; but that the members should have the same anxious care, one for another; 26 and if one member suffer, all the members suffer with it; or if one member is honored, all the members rejoice with it. 27 Now, you are the body of Christ, and, as individuals, you are members. 28 And God has placed some in the church, first, apostles; secondly, prophets; thirdly, teachers; then mighty deeds; then gifts of healing; helps, governments, kinds of tongues. 29 Are all apostles? Are all prophets? Are all teachers? Are all workers of mighty deeds? 30 Have all the gifts of healing? Do all speak with tongues? Do all interpret? 31 But seek earnestly the best gifts; and yet I show you a more excellent way.

1 Corinthians 14:39

39 Wherefore, brethren, earnestly desire to prophesy, and forbid not to speak with tongues.

Ephesians 4:1-32

1 I therefore, the prisoner in the Lord, exhort you to walk in a manner worthy of the calling with which you have been called; 2 with all lowliness and meekness, with long-suffering, bearing with one another in love, 3 earnestly endeavoring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. 4 There is one body and one Spirit, even as you have been called in one hope of your calling; 5 one Lord, one faith, one immersion; 6 one God and Father of all, who is over all, and through all, and in you all. 7 But grace has been given to each one of us, according to the measure of the gift of the Christ. 8 For which reason, the scripture says: When he ascended on high, he led captive a multitude of captives, and gave gifts to men. 9 But this He ascended what does it mean, but that he also descended into the lower earthly regions? 10 He that descended is also he that ascended high above all the heavens, that he might fill all things. 11 And he himself gave some to be apostles, and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; 12 for the complete instruction of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the building up of the body of the Christ, 13 till we all come to the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to a measure of stature that fully develops the Christ; 14 that we might no longer be children, tossed and carried about by every wind of teaching, through the artifice of men, through craftiness used by them for the deliberate planning of deceit; 15 but speaking truthfully in love, we might grow up in all things, into him who is the head, even the Christ, 16 from whom the whole body, compactly fitted together, and united by every helping joint, according to the energy in the measure of each part, makes increase of the body, for the building up of itself in love. 17 This I say, therefore, and appeal to you solemnly in the Lord, that you no longer walk as the other Gentiles walk, in the error of their minds, 18 darkened in their understanding, alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the hardness of their heart; 19 who, being past feeling, have given themselves up to licentiousness, that they may work all manner of uncleanness with greediness. 20 But you have not so learned the Christ, 21 if, indeed, you have heard of him, and been taught by him, as the truth is in Jesus: 22 that, as to your former life, you put off the old man, which is corrupt, according to its deceitful desires, 23 and that you be renewed in the spirit of your mind, 24 and put on the new man, which, according to the will of God, is created in righteousness and true holiness. 25 For which reason, putting away lying, speak, every one, truth with his neighbor: for we are members one of another. 26 Be angry, and yet do not sin: let not the sun go down on your wrath, 27 nor give place to the devil. 28 Let him that steals, steal no more: but rather let labor, working with his hands that which is good, that he may have something to give to him that has need. 29 Let no impure speech come out of your mouth, but whatever is good for needful edification, that it may give grace to the hearers: 30 and grieve not the Holy Spirit of God, with which you have been sealed for the day of redemption. 31 Let all bitterness and anger and wrath and clamor and impious speaking be put away from you, with all malice: 32 and be kind to one another, compassionate, forgiving one another, as God in Christ has forgiven you.

1 Corinthians 13:8

8 Love never fails; but whether there be gifts of prophecy, they shall have an end; or tongues, they shall cease; or knowledge, it shall have an end.

1 Peter 4:10

10 As each has received a gift, minister the same one to another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God.

1 Corinthians 14:1-40

1 Cultivate love, and earnestly desire spiritual gifts, but rather that you may prophesy. 2 For he that speaks in an unknown tongue, speaks not to men, but to God; for no one understands him: but yet in spirit he speaks mysteries. 3 But he that prophesies speaks to men so as to build them up, to exhort and comfort them. 4 He that speaks in an unknown tongue, edifies himself; but he that prophesies, edifies the church. 5 I am willing, indeed, that you should all speak in tongues, but rather that you should prophesy; for greater is he that prophesies than he that speaks in tongues, unless he interprets, in order that the church may receive instruction. 6 Now, brethren, if I come to you speaking in tongues, in what will I profit you, unless I speak to you by revelation, or by knowledge, or by prophecy, or by teaching? 7 And even lifeless instruments, which produce sound, whether pipe or harp, unless they give a distinction in the notes, how shall that which is piped or harped be known? 8 For if the trumpet give an uncertain sound, who will prepare himself for battle? 9 So, also, unless you, with the tongue, utter words that are intelligible, how shall that which is spoken be known? for you will speak into the air. 10 There are, it may be, so many kinds of voices in the world, and none of them is without meaning. 11 If, then, I know not the meaning of the voice, I shall be to him that speaks a barbarian; and he that speaks will be a barbarian to me. 12 So, also, do you, since you greatly desire spiritual gifts, seek to excel to the building up of the church. 13 For which reason, let him that speaks in an unknown tongue pray that he may interpret. 14 For if I pray in an unknown tongue, the spirit which I have prays, but my understanding is unfruitful. 15 What, then, is it? I will pray with the spirit which is given to me, and I will pray with my understanding also. I will sing with the spirit that is given to me, and I will sing with my understanding also. 16 Otherwise, if you bless with the spirit that is given to you, how will he that occupies the place of the unlearned man say Amen, when you give thanks, since he understands not what you say? 17 For you give thanks well, but the other is not edified. 18 I thank God that I speak in tongues more than you all. 19 Yet in the church I would rather speak five words with my understanding, that I may instruct others, than ten thousand words in an unknown tongue. 20 Brethren, be not children in understanding: yet, in malice, be childlike; but, in understanding, be full-grown men. 21 In the law it is written: Through men of other tongues and other lips will I speak to this people; and not even thus will they hear me, says the Lord. 22 Therefore, tongues are for a sign, not to those who believe, but to those who believe not: but prophecy is not for those who believe not, but for those who believe. 23 If, then, the whole church come together into the same place, and all speak in tongues, and there come in unlearned men, or unbelievers, will they not say that you are mad? 24 But if all prophesy, and there comes in an unbeliever, or an unlearned man, he is convinced by all, he is examined by all, 25 and the secrets of his heart are made manifest; and so, falling down on his face, he will worship God, and report that God is really among you. 26 What, then, is it, brethren? When you come together, each one of you has a psalm, has something to teach, has an unknown tongue, has a revelation, has an interpretation. Let all things be done for edification. 27 If any speak in an unknown tongue, let two, or, at most, three, speak at each meeting, and in succession: and let one interpret. 28 But if there be no interpreter, let him keep silence in the church: but let him speak to himself, and to God. 29 Let two or three prophets speak, and let the others judge: 30 and if any thing be revealed to one who is 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 the prophets are subject to the prophets; 33 for God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all the assemblies of the saints. 34 Let your women keep silence in the assemblies; for they ire not permitted to speak; but they must be in subjection, as also says the law. 35 But if they wish to learn any thing,, let them ask their own husbands at home; for it is a shame for women to speak in an assembly. 36 Has the word of God come forth from you? or did it come to you only? 37 If any one has the reputation of being a prophet, or spiritual man, let him acknowledge that the things which I write to you are the commandments of the Lord. 38 But if any one be ignorant, let him be ignorant. 39 Wherefore, brethren, earnestly desire to prophesy, and forbid not to speak with tongues. 40 Let all things be done with propriety, and in good order.

1 Corinthians 12:7-11

7 But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to each one, for the good of all. 8 For to one is given, by the Spirit, the word of wisdom; to another, the word of knowledge, by the same Spirit; 9 to another, faith, by the same Spirit; to another, gifts of healing, by the same Spirit; 10 to another, the working of mighty deeds; to another, prophecy; to another, the discerning of spirits; to another, different kinds of tongues; to another, the interpretation of tongues. 11 But all these, the one and the same Spirit makes effectual, distributing to each, respectively, as he wills.
