1 Corinthians 12
1 Spiritual gifts 4 are divers, 7 yet all to profit withal. 8 And to that end are diversely bestowed: 12 that by the like proportion, as the members of a natural body, tend all to the 16 mutual decency, 22 service, and 26 succour of the same body; 27 so we should do one for another, to make up the mystical body of Christ.
12:1 ¶ But, concerning the spiritually gifted, brethren, I am not wishing you to be ignorant.
12:2 Ye know that, when ye were of the nations, unto the dumb idols, howsoever ye were being led, ye were seduced.
12:3 Wherefore, I give you to knowthat, no one, in God's Spirit speaking, saithAccursed Jesus! and, no one, can sayLord Jesus! save in [the] Holy Spirit.
12:4 But, distributions of gifts, there are, yet the same Spirit,
12:5 And, distributions of ministries, there are, and the same Lord,
12:6 And, distributions of energies, there are, and the same Godwho energiseth all things in all.
12:7 But, unto each one, is given the manifesting of the Spirit, with a view to that which is profitable;
12:8 For, unto one, indeed, through the Spirit, is given, a word of wisdom, but, unto another, a word of knowledge, according to the same Spirit;
12:9 Unto a different one, faith, in the same Spirit, and, unto another, gifts of healings, in the one Spirit,
12:10 And, unto another, energies of mighty works, [and], unto another, prophesying, [and], unto another, discriminations of spirits,unto a different one, kinds of tongues, and, unto another, translation of tongues;
12:11 But, all these, energiseth the one and the same Spirit, distributing unto each one, peculiarly, even as it is disposed.
12:12 ¶ For, just as, the body, is one, and yet hath many members, but, all the members of the body, though many, are one body, so, also, the Christ;
12:13 For, even to one Spirit, we all, into one body, have been immersed,whether Jews or Greeks, whether bond or free,and, all, of one Spirit, have been caused to drink.
12:14 For, the body also, is not one member, but many:
12:15 Though the foot should sayBecause I am not a hand, I am not of the body, Is it, therefore, not, of the body?
12:16 And, though the ear should sayBecause I am not an eye, I am not of the body, Is it, therefore, not, of the body?
12:17 If, the whole body, were, an eye, where were the hearing? If, the whole were, hearing, where were, the smelling?
12:18 But, now, hath God set the members, each one of them in the body, even as he pleased.
12:19 But, if they all had been one member, Where had been, the body?
12:20 Now, however there are many members, yet one body;
12:21 [And] the eye cannot say unto the handI have no need of thee,nor, again, the head, unto the feetI have no need of you:
12:22 Nay! much more, the members which seem to be weaker are necessary,
12:23 And, the parts of the body which we deem to be less honourable, on these, more abundant honour, do we bestow, and, our uncomely parts, have, more abundant comeliness,
12:24 Whereas, our comely parts, have, no need. But, God, hath tempered the body together,unto that which was lacking, giving more abundant honour;
12:25 That there might be no division in the body, but that the members might have, the same, care, one for another;
12:26 And, whether one member, suffereth, all the members, suffer with it, or, a member is glorified, all the members, rejoice together.
12:27 ¶ Now, ye, are the body of Christ, and members severally;
12:28 And God hath, indeed, set, certain, in the assembly,first apostles, second prophets, third teachers, after that mighty works, then gifts of healings, helps, guidings, kinds of tongues.
12:29 Are all apostles? Are all prophets? Are all teachers? Are all mighty works?
12:30 Have, all, gifts of healings? Do, all, with tongues, speak? Do, all, translate?
12:31 Be envious, however, of the greater gifts; and, yet, a much more excellent way, unto you, I point out:
