Book 46 : 1 CORINTHIANS - Chapter 012


Ye know that ye were Gentiles, carried away unto these dumb idols, even as ye were led


Wherefore I give you to understand, that no man speaking by the Spirit of God calleth Jesus accursed: and that no man can say that Jesus is the Lord, but by the Holy Ghost


Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit


And there are differences of administrations, but the same Lord


And there are diversities of operations, but it is the same God which worketh all in all


But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal


For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit


To another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit


To another the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to another divers kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues


But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as he will


For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ


For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit


For the body is not one member, but many


If the foot shall say, Because I am not the hand, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body


And if the ear shall say, Because I am not the eye, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body


If the whole body were an eye, where were the hearing? If the whole were hearing, where were the smelling


But now hath God set the members every one of them in the body, as it hath pleased him


And if they were all one member, where were the body


But now are they many members, yet but one body


And the eye cannot say unto the hand, I have no need of thee: nor again the head to the feet, I have no need of you


Nay, much more those members of the body, which seem to be more feeble, are necessary


And those members of the body, which we think to be less honourable, upon these we bestow more abundant honour; and our uncomely parts have more abundant comeliness


For our comely parts have no need: but God hath tempered the body together, having given more abundant honour to that part which lacked


That there should be no schism in the body; but that the members should have the same care one for another


And whether one member suffer, all the members suffer with it; or one member be honoured, all the members rejoice with it


Now ye are the body of Christ, and members in particular


And God hath set some in the church, first apostles, secondarily prophets, thirdly teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, governments, diversities of tongues


Are all apostles? are all prophets? are all teachers? are all workers of miracles


Have all the gifts of healing? do all speak with tongues? do all interpret


But covet earnestly the best gifts: and yet shew I unto you a more excellent way
