The First Epistle Of Paul The Apostle To The Corinthians
1 Corinthians 1:1 Paul, called to be an apostle of Jesus Christ through the
will of God, and Sosthenes our brother,
1 Corinthians 1:2 Unto the church of God which is at Corinth, to them that
are sanctified in Christ Jesus, called to be saints, with all that in every
place call upon the name of Jesus Christ our Lord, both theirs and ours:
1 Corinthians 1:3 Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father, and from
the Lord Jesus Christ.
1 Corinthians 1:4 I thank my God always on your behalf, for the grace of God
which is given you by Jesus Christ;
1 Corinthians 1:5 That in every thing ye are enriched by him, in all
utterance, and in all knowledge;
1 Corinthians 1:6 Even as the testimony of Christ was confirmed in you:
1 Corinthians 1:7 So that ye come behind in no gift; waiting for the coming
of our Lord Jesus Christ:
1 Corinthians 1:8 Who shall also confirm you unto the end, that ye may be
blameless in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ.
1 Corinthians 1:9 God is faithful, by whom ye were called unto the
fellowship of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord.
1 Corinthians 1:10 Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord
Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions
among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in
the same judgment.
1 Corinthians 1:11 For it hath been declared unto me of you, my brethren, by
them which are of the house of Chloe, that there are contentions among you.
1 Corinthians 1:12 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.
1 Corinthians 1:13 Is Christ divided? was Paul crucified for you? or were ye
baptized in the name of Paul?
1 Corinthians 1:14 I thank God that I baptized none of you, but Crispus and
1 Corinthians 1:15 Lest any should say that I had baptized in mine own name.
1 Corinthians 1:16 And I baptized also the household of Stephanas: besides,
I know not whether I baptized any other.
1 Corinthians 1:17 For Christ sent me not to baptize, but to preach the
gospel: not with wisdom of words, lest the cross of Christ should be made of
1 Corinthians 1:18 For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish
foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.
1 Corinthians 1:19 For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise,
and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.
1 Corinthians 1:20 Where is the wise? where is the scribe? where is the
disputer of this world? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world?
1 Corinthians 1:21 For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom
knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that
1 Corinthians 1:22 For the Jews require a sign, and the Greeks seek after
1 Corinthians 1:23 But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a
stumblingblock, and unto the Greeks foolishness;
1 Corinthians 1:24 But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks,
Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God.
1 Corinthians 1:25 Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the
weakness of God is stronger than men.
1 Corinthians 1:26 For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise
men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called:
1 Corinthians 1:27 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;
1 Corinthians 1:28 And base things of the world, and things which are
despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought
things that are:
1 Corinthians 1:29 That no flesh should glory in his presence.
1 Corinthians 1:30 But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made
unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption:
1 Corinthians 1:31 That, according as it is written, He that glorieth, let
him glory in the Lord.
1 Corinthians 2:1 And I, brethren, when I came to you, came not with
excellency of speech or of wisdom, declaring unto you the testimony of God.
1 Corinthians 2:2 For I determined not to know any thing among you, save
Jesus Christ, and him crucified.
1 Corinthians 2:3 And I was with you in weakness, and in fear, and in much
1 Corinthians 2:4 And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words
of man's wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power:
1 Corinthians 2:5 That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but
in the power of God.
1 Corinthians 2:6 Howbeit we speak wisdom among them that are perfect: yet
not the wisdom of this world, nor of the princes of this world, that come to
1 Corinthians 2:7 But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the
hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory:
1 Corinthians 2:8 Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they
known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.
1 Corinthians 2:9 But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard,
neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared
for them that love him.
1 Corinthians 2:10 But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the
Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.
1 Corinthians 2:11 For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit
of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the
Spirit of God.
1 Corinthians 2:12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but
the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely
given to us of God.
1 Corinthians 2:13 Which things also we speak, not in the words which man's
wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things
1 Corinthians 2:14 But the natural man receiveth not the things of the
Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them,
because they are spiritually discerned.
1 Corinthians 2:15 But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he
himself is judged of no man.
1 Corinthians 2:16 For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may
instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ.
1 Corinthians 3:1 And I, brethren, could not speak unto you as unto
spiritual, but as unto carnal, even as unto babes in Christ.
1 Corinthians 3:2 I have fed you with milk, and not with meat: for hitherto
ye were not able to bear it, neither yet now are ye able.
1 Corinthians 3:3 For ye are yet carnal: for whereas there is among you
envying, and strife, and divisions, are ye not carnal, and walk as men?
1 Corinthians 3:4 For while one saith, I am of Paul; and another, I am of
Apollos; are ye not carnal?
1 Corinthians 3:5 Who then is Paul, and who is Apollos, but ministers by
whom ye believed, even as the Lord gave to every man?
1 Corinthians 3:6 I have planted, Apollos watered; but God gave the
1 Corinthians 3:7 So then neither is he that planteth any thing, neither he
that watereth; but God that giveth the increase.
1 Corinthians 3:8 Now he that planteth and he that watereth are one: and
every man shall receive his own reward according to his own labour.
1 Corinthians 3:9 For we are labourers together with God: ye are God's
husbandry, ye are God's building.
1 Corinthians 3:10 According to the grace of God which is given unto me, as
a wise masterbuilder, I have laid the foundation, and another buildeth
thereon. But let every man take heed how he buildeth thereupon.
1 Corinthians 3:11 For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid,
which is Jesus Christ.
1 Corinthians 3:12 Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver,
precious stones, wood, hay, stubble;
1 Corinthians 3:13 Every man's work shall be made manifest: for the day
shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try
every man's work of what sort it is.
1 Corinthians 3:14 If any man's work abide which he hath built thereupon, he
shall receive a reward.
1 Corinthians 3:15 If any man's work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss:
but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire.
1 Corinthians 3:16 Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the
Spirit of God dwelleth in you?
1 Corinthians 3:17 If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God
destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are.
1 Corinthians 3:18 Let no man deceive himself. If any man among you seemeth
to be wise in this world, let him become a fool, that he may be wise.
1 Corinthians 3:19 For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For
it is written, He taketh the wise in their own craftiness.
1 Corinthians 3:20 And again, The Lord knoweth the thoughts of the wise,
that they are vain.
1 Corinthians 3:21 Therefore let no man glory in men. For all things are
1 Corinthians 3:22 Whether Paul, or Apollos, or Cephas, or the world, or
life, or death, or things present, or things to come; all are yours;
1 Corinthians 3:23 And ye are Christ's; and Christ is God's.
1 Corinthians 4:1 Let a man so account of us, as of the ministers of Christ,
and stewards of the mysteries of God.
1 Corinthians 4:2 Moreover it is required in stewards, that a man be found
1 Corinthians 4:3 But with me it is a very small thing that I should be
judged of you, or of man's judgment: yea, I judge not mine own self.
1 Corinthians 4:4 For I know nothing by myself; yet am I not hereby
justified: but he that judgeth me is the Lord.
1 Corinthians 4:5 Therefore judge nothing before the time, until the Lord
come, who both will bring to light the hidden things of darkness, and will
make manifest the counsels of the hearts: and then shall every man have praise
1 Corinthians 4:6 And these things, brethren, I have in a figure transferred
to myself and to Apollos for your sakes; that ye might learn in us not to
think of men above that which is written, that no one of you be puffed up for
one against another.
1 Corinthians 4:7 For who maketh thee to differ from another? and what hast
thou that thou didst not receive? now if thou didst receive it, why dost thou
glory, as if thou hadst not received it?
1 Corinthians 4:8 Now ye are full, now ye are rich, ye have reigned as kings
without us: and I would to God ye did reign, that we also might reign with
1 Corinthians 4:9 For I think that God hath set forth us the apostles last,
as it were appointed to death: for we are made a spectacle unto the world, and
to angels, and to men.
1 Corinthians 4:10 We are fools for Christ's sake, but ye are wise in
Christ; we are weak, but ye are strong; ye are honourable, but we are
1 Corinthians 4:11 Even unto this present hour we both hunger, and thirst,
and are naked, and are buffeted, and have no certain dwellingplace;
1 Corinthians 4:12 And labour, working with our own hands: being reviled, we
bless; being persecuted, we suffer it:
1 Corinthians 4:13 Being defamed, we entreat: we are made as the filth of
the world, and are the offscouring of all things unto this day.
1 Corinthians 4:14 I write not these things to shame you, but as my beloved
sons I warn you.
1 Corinthians 4:15 For though ye have ten thousand instructors in Christ,
yet have ye not many fathers: for in Christ Jesus I have begotten you through
1 Corinthians 4:16 Wherefore I beseech you, be ye followers of me.
1 Corinthians 4:17 For this cause have I sent unto you Timotheus, who is my
beloved son, and faithful in the Lord, who shall bring you into remembrance of
my ways which be in Christ, as I teach every where in every church.
1 Corinthians 4:18 Now some are puffed up, as though I would not come to
1 Corinthians 4:19 But I will come to you shortly, if the Lord will, and
will know, not the speech of them which are puffed up, but the power.
1 Corinthians 4:20 For the kingdom of God is not in word, but in power.
1 Corinthians 4:21 What will ye? shall I come unto you with a rod, or in
love, and in the spirit of meekness?
1 Corinthians 5:1 It is reported commonly that there is fornication among
you, and such fornication as is not so much as named among the Gentiles, that
one should have his father's wife.
1 Corinthians 5:2 And ye are puffed up, and have not rather mourned, that he
that hath done this deed might be taken away from among you.
1 Corinthians 5:3 For I verily, as absent in body, but present in spirit,
have judged already, as though I were present, concerning him that hath so
done this deed,
1 Corinthians 5:4 In the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, when ye are gathered
together, and my spirit, with the power of our Lord Jesus Christ,
1 Corinthians 5:5 To deliver such an one unto Satan for the destruction of
the flesh, that the spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus.
1 Corinthians 5:6 Your glorying is not good. Know ye not that a little
leaven leaveneth the whole lump?
1 Corinthians 5:7 Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new
lump, as ye are unleavened. For even Christ our passover is sacrificed for us:
1 Corinthians 5:8 Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven,
neither with the leaven of malice and wickedness; but with the unleavened bread
of sincerity and truth.
1 Corinthians 5:9 I wrote unto you in an epistle not to company with
1 Corinthians 5:10 Yet not altogether with the fornicators of this world, or
with the covetous, or extortioners, or with idolaters; for then must ye needs
go out of the world.
1 Corinthians 5:11 But now I have written unto you not to keep company, if
any man that is called a brother be a fornicator, or covetous, or an idolater,
or a railer, or a drunkard, or an extortioner; with such an one no not to eat.
1 Corinthians 5:12 For what have I to do to judge them also that are
without? do not ye judge them that are within?
1 Corinthians 5:13 But them that are without God judgeth. Therefore put away
from among yourselves that wicked person.
1 Corinthians 6:1 Dare any of you, having a matter against another, go to
law before the unjust, and not before the saints?
1 Corinthians 6:2 Do ye not know that the saints shall judge the world? and
if the world shall be judged by you, are ye unworthy to judge the smallest
1 Corinthians 6:3 Know ye not that we shall judge angels? how much more
things that pertain to this life?
1 Corinthians 6:4 If then ye have judgments of things pertaining to this
life, set them to judge who are least esteemed in the church.
1 Corinthians 6:5 I speak to your shame. Is it so, that there is not a wise
man among you? no, not one that shall be able to judge between his brethren?
1 Corinthians 6:6 But brother goeth to law with brother, and that before the
1 Corinthians 6:7 Now therefore there is utterly a fault among you, because
ye go to law one with another. Why do ye not rather take wrong? why do ye not
rather suffer yourselves to be defrauded?
1 Corinthians 6:8 Nay, ye do wrong, and defraud, and that your brethren.
1 Corinthians 6:9 Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the
kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor
adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,
1 Corinthians 6:10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers,
nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.
1 Corinthians 6:11 And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are
sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the
Spirit of our God.
1 Corinthians 6:12 All things are lawful unto me, but all things are not
expedient: all things are lawful for me, but I will not be brought under the
power of any.
1 Corinthians 6:13 Meats for the belly, and the belly for meats: but God
shall destroy both it and them. Now the body is not for fornication, but for
the Lord; and the Lord for the body.
1 Corinthians 6:14 And God hath both raised up the Lord, and will also raise
up us by his own power.
1 Corinthians 6:15 Know ye not that your bodies are the members of Christ?
shall I then take the members of Christ, and make them the members of an
harlot? God forbid.
1 Corinthians 6:16 What? know ye not that he which is joined to an harlot is
one body? for two, saith he, shall be one flesh.
1 Corinthians 6:17 But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit.
1 Corinthians 6:18 Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without
the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body.
1 Corinthians 6:19 What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the
Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?
1 Corinthians 6:20 For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in
your body, and in your spirit, which are God's.
1 Corinthians 7:1 Now concerning the things whereof ye wrote unto me: It is
good for a man not to touch a woman.
1 Corinthians 7:2 Nevertheless, to avoid fornication, let every man have his
own wife, and let every woman have her own husband.
1 Corinthians 7:3 Let the husband render unto the wife due benevolence: and
likewise also the wife unto the husband.
1 Corinthians 7:4 The wife hath not power of her own body, but the husband:
and likewise also the husband hath not power of his own body, but the wife.
1 Corinthians 7:5 Defraud ye not one the other, except it be with consent
for a time, that ye may give yourselves to fasting and prayer; and come
together again, that Satan tempt you not for your incontinency.
1 Corinthians 7:6 But I speak this by permission, and not of commandment.
1 Corinthians 7:7 For I would that all men were even as I myself. But every
man hath his proper gift of God, one after this manner, and another after
1 Corinthians 7:8 I say therefore to the unmarried and widows, It is good
for them if they abide even as I.
1 Corinthians 7:9 But if they cannot contain, let them marry: for it is
better to marry than to burn.
1 Corinthians 7:10 And unto the married I command, yet not I, but the Lord,
Let not the wife depart from her husband:
1 Corinthians 7:11 But and if she depart, let her remain unmarried, or be
reconciled to her husband: and let not the husband put away his wife.
1 Corinthians 7:12 But to the rest speak I, not the Lord: If any brother
hath a wife that believeth not, and she be pleased to dwell with him, let him
not put her away.
1 Corinthians 7:13 And the woman which hath an husband that believeth not,
and if he be pleased to dwell with her, let her not leave him.
1 Corinthians 7:14 For the unbelieving husband is sanctified by the wife,
and the unbelieving wife is sanctified by the husband: else were your children
unclean; but now are they holy.
1 Corinthians 7:15 But if the unbelieving depart, let him depart. A brother
or a sister is not under bondage in such cases: but God hath called us to
1 Corinthians 7:16 For what knowest thou, O wife, whether thou shalt save thy
husband? or how knowest thou, O man, whether thou shalt save thy wife?
1 Corinthians 7:17 But as God hath distributed to every man, as the Lord
hath called every one, so let him walk. And so ordain I in all churches.
1 Corinthians 7:18 Is any man called being circumcised? let him not become
uncircumcised. Is any called in uncircumcision? let him not be circumcised.
1 Corinthians 7:19 Circumcision is nothing, and uncircumcision is nothing,
but the keeping of the commandments of God.
1 Corinthians 7:20 Let every man abide in the same calling wherein he was
1 Corinthians 7:21 Art thou called being a servant? care not for it: but if
thou mayest be made free, use it rather.
1 Corinthians 7:22 For he that is called in the Lord, being a servant, is
the Lord's freeman: likewise also he that is called, being free, is Christ's
1 Corinthians 7:23 Ye are bought with a price; be not ye the servants of
1 Corinthians 7:24 Brethren, let every man, wherein he is called, therein
abide with God.
1 Corinthians 7:25 Now concerning virgins I have no commandment of the Lord:
yet I give my judgment, as one that hath obtained mercy of the Lord to be
1 Corinthians 7:26 I suppose therefore that this is good for the present
distress, I say, that it is good for a man so to be.
1 Corinthians 7:27 Art thou bound unto a wife? seek not to be loosed. Art
thou loosed from a wife? seek not a wife.
1 Corinthians 7:28 But and if thou marry, thou hast not sinned; and if a
virgin marry, she hath not sinned. Nevertheless such shall have trouble in the
flesh: but I spare you.
1 Corinthians 7:29 But this I say, brethren, the time is short: it
remaineth, that both they that have wives be as though they had none;
1 Corinthians 7:30 And they that weep, as though they wept not; and they
that rejoice, as though they rejoiced not; and they that buy, as though they
1 Corinthians 7:31 And they that use this world, as not abusing it: for the
fashion of this world passeth away.
1 Corinthians 7:32 But I would have you without carefulness. He that is
unmarried careth for the things that belong to the Lord, how he may please the
1 Corinthians 7:33 But he that is married careth for the things that are of
the world, how he may please his wife.
1 Corinthians 7:34 There is difference also between a wife and a virgin. The
unmarried woman careth for the things of the Lord, that she may be holy both
in body and in spirit: but she that is married careth for the things of the
world, how she may please her husband.
1 Corinthians 7:35 And this I speak for your own profit; not that I may cast
a snare upon you, but for that which is comely, and that ye may attend upon
the Lord without distraction.
1 Corinthians 7:36 But if any man think that he behaveth himself uncomely
toward his virgin, if she pass the flower of her age, and need so require, let
him do what he will, he sinneth not: let them marry.
1 Corinthians 7:37 Nevertheless he that standeth stedfast in his heart,
having no necessity, but hath power over his own will, and hath so decreed in
his heart that he will keep his virgin, doeth well.
1 Corinthians 7:38 So then he that giveth her in marriage doeth well; but he
that giveth her not in marriage doeth better.
1 Corinthians 7:39 The wife is bound by the law as long as her husband
liveth; but if her husband be dead, she is at liberty to be married to whom
she will; only in the Lord.
1 Corinthians 7:40 But she is happier if she so abide, after my judgment:
and I think also that I have the Spirit of God.
1 Corinthians 8:1 Now as touching things offered unto idols, we know that we
all have knowledge. Knowledge puffeth up, but charity edifieth.
1 Corinthians 8:2 And if any man think that he knoweth any thing, he knoweth
nothing yet as he ought to know.
1 Corinthians 8:3 But if any man love God, the same is known of him.
1 Corinthians 8:4 As concerning therefore the eating of those things that
are offered in sacrifice unto idols, we know that an idol is nothing in the
world, and that there is none other God but one.
1 Corinthians 8:5 For though there be that are called gods, whether in
heaven or in earth, (as there be gods many, and lords many,)
1 Corinthians 8:6 But to us there is but one God, the Father, of whom are
all things, and we in him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things,
and we by him.
1 Corinthians 8:7 Howbeit there is not in every man that knowledge: for some
with conscience of the idol unto this hour eat it as a thing offered unto an
idol; and their conscience being weak is defiled.
1 Corinthians 8:8 But meat commendeth us not to God: for neither, if we eat,
are we the better; neither, if we eat not, are we the worse.
1 Corinthians 8:9 But take heed lest by any means this liberty of yours
become a stumblingblock to them that are weak.
1 Corinthians 8:10 For if any man see thee which hast knowledge sit at meat
in the idol's temple, shall not the conscience of him which is weak be
emboldened to eat those things which are offered to idols;
1 Corinthians 8:11 And through thy knowledge shall the weak brother perish,
for whom Christ died?
1 Corinthians 8:12 But when ye sin so against the brethren, and wound their
weak conscience, ye sin against Christ.
1 Corinthians 8:13 Wherefore, if meat make my brother to offend, I will eat
no flesh while the world standeth, lest I make my brother to offend.
1 Corinthians 9:1 Am I not an apostle? am I not free? have I not seen Jesus
Christ our Lord? are not ye my work in the Lord?
1 Corinthians 9:2 If I be not an apostle unto others, yet doubtless I am to
you: for the seal of mine apostleship are ye in the Lord.
1 Corinthians 9:3 Mine answer to them that do examine me is this,
1 Corinthians 9:4 Have we not power to eat and to drink?
1 Corinthians 9:5 Have we not power to lead about a sister, a wife, as well
as other apostles, and as the brethren of the Lord, and Cephas?
1 Corinthians 9:6 Or I only and Barnabas, have not we power to forbear
1 Corinthians 9:7 Who goeth a warfare any time at his own charges? who
planteth a vineyard, and eateth not of the fruit thereof? or who feedeth a
flock, and eateth not of the milk of the flock?
1 Corinthians 9:8 Say I these things as a man? or saith not the law the same
1 Corinthians 9:9 For it is written in the law of Moses, Thou shalt not
muzzle the mouth of the ox that treadeth out the corn. Doth God take care for
1 Corinthians 9:10 Or saith he it altogether for our sakes? For our sakes,
no doubt, this is written: that he that ploweth should plow in hope; and that
he that thresheth in hope should be partaker of his hope.
1 Corinthians 9:11 If we have sown unto you spiritual things, is it a great
thing if we shall reap your carnal things?
1 Corinthians 9:12 If others be partakers of this power over you, are not we
rather? Nevertheless we have not used this power; but suffer all things, lest
we should hinder the gospel of Christ.
1 Corinthians 9:13 Do ye not know that they which minister about holy things
live of the things of the temple? and they which wait at the altar are
partakers with the altar?
1 Corinthians 9:14 Even so hath the Lord ordained that they which preach the
gospel should live of the gospel.
1 Corinthians 9:15 But I have used none of these things: neither have I
written these things, that it should be so done unto me: for it were better
for me to die, than that any man should make my glorying void.
1 Corinthians 9:16 For though I preach the gospel, I have nothing to glory
of: for necessity is laid upon me; yea, woe is unto me, if I preach not the
1 Corinthians 9:17 For if I do this thing willingly, I have a reward: but if
against my will, a dispensation of the gospel is committed unto me.
1 Corinthians 9:18 What is my reward then? Verily that, when I preach the
gospel, I may make the gospel of Christ without charge, that I abuse not my
power in the gospel.
1 Corinthians 9:19 For though I be free from all men, yet have I made myself
servant unto all, that I might gain the more.
1 Corinthians 9:20 And unto the Jews I became as a Jew, that I might gain
the Jews; to them that are under the law, as under the law, that I might gain
them that are under the law;
1 Corinthians 9:21 To them that are without law, as without law, (being not
without law to God, but under the law to Christ,) that I might gain them that
are without law.
1 Corinthians 9:22 To the weak became I as weak, that I might gain the weak:
I am made all things to all men, that I might by all means save some.
1 Corinthians 9:23 And this I do for the gospel's sake, that I might be
partaker thereof with you.
1 Corinthians 9:24 Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but
one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye may obtain.
1 Corinthians 9:25 And every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate
in all things. Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown; but we an
1 Corinthians 9:26 I therefore so run, not as uncertainly; so fight I, not
as one that beateth the air:
1 Corinthians 9:27 But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection:
lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a
1 Corinthians 10:1 Moreover, brethren, I would not that ye should be
ignorant, how that all our fathers were under the cloud, and all passed
through the sea;
1 Corinthians 10:2 And were all baptized unto Moses in the cloud and in the
1 Corinthians 10:3 And did all eat the same spiritual meat;
1 Corinthians 10:4 And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they
drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ.
1 Corinthians 10:5 But with many of them God was not well pleased: for they
were overthrown in the wilderness.
1 Corinthians 10:6 Now these things were our examples, to the intent we
should not lust after evil things, as they also lusted.
1 Corinthians 10:7 Neither be ye idolaters, as were some of them; as it is
written, The people sat down to eat and drink, and rose up to play.
1 Corinthians 10:8 Neither let us commit fornication, as some of them
committed, and fell in one day three and twenty thousand.
1 Corinthians 10:9 Neither let us tempt Christ, as some of them also
tempted, and were destroyed of serpents.
1 Corinthians 10:10 Neither murmur ye, as some of them also murmured, and
were destroyed of the destroyer.
1 Corinthians 10:11 Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples:
and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are
1 Corinthians 10:12 Wherefore let him that thinketh he standeth take heed
lest he fall.
1 Corinthians 10:13 There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common
to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that
ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye
may be able to bear it.
1 Corinthians 10:14 Wherefore, my dearly beloved, flee from idolatry.
1 Corinthians 10:15 I speak as to wise men; judge ye what I say.
1 Corinthians 10:16 The cup of blessing which we bless, is it not the
communion of the blood of Christ? The bread which we break, is it not the
communion of the body of Christ?
1 Corinthians 10:17 For we being many are one bread, and one body: for we
are all partakers of that one bread.
1 Corinthians 10:18 Behold Israel after the flesh: are not they which eat of
the sacrifices partakers of the altar?
1 Corinthians 10:19 What say I then? that the idol is any thing, or that
which is offered in sacrifice to idols is any thing?
1 Corinthians 10:20 But I say, that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice,
they sacrifice to devils, and not to God: and I would not that ye should have
fellowship with devils.
1 Corinthians 10:21 Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of
devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord's table, and of the table of
1 Corinthians 10:22 Do we provoke the Lord to jealousy? are we stronger than
1 Corinthians 10:23 All things are lawful for me, but all things are not
expedient: all things are lawful for me, but all things edify not.
1 Corinthians 10:24 Let no man seek his own, but every man another's wealth.
1 Corinthians 10:25 Whatsoever is sold in the shambles, that eat, asking no
question for conscience sake:
1 Corinthians 10:26 For the earth is the Lord's, and the fulness thereof.
1 Corinthians 10:27 If any of them that believe not bid you to a feast, and
ye be disposed to go; whatsoever is set before you, eat, asking no question
for conscience sake.
1 Corinthians 10:28 But if any man say unto you, This is offered in
sacrifice unto idols, eat not for his sake that showed it, and for conscience
sake: for the earth is the Lord's, and the fulness thereof:
1 Corinthians 10:29 Conscience, I say, not thine own, but of the other: for
why is my liberty judged of another man's conscience?
1 Corinthians 10:30 For if I by grace be a partaker, why am I evil spoken of
for that for which I give thanks?
1 Corinthians 10:31 Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do,
do all to the glory of God.
1 Corinthians 10:32 Give none offence, neither to the Jews, nor to the
Gentiles, nor to the church of God:
1 Corinthians 10:33 Even as I please all men in all things, not seeking mine
own profit, but the profit of many, that they may be saved.
1 Corinthians 11:1 Be ye followers of me, even as I also am of Christ.
1 Corinthians 11:2 Now I praise you, brethren, that ye remember me in all
things, and keep the ordinances, as I delivered them to you.
1 Corinthians 11:3 But I would have you know, that the head of every man is
Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God.
1 Corinthians 11:4 Every man praying or prophesying, having his head
covered, dishonoureth his head.
1 Corinthians 11:5 But every woman that prayeth or prophesieth with her head
uncovered dishonoureth her head: for that is even all one as if she were
1 Corinthians 11:6 For if the woman be not covered, let her also be shorn:
but if it be a shame for a woman to be shorn or shaven, let her be covered.
1 Corinthians 11:7 For a man indeed ought not to cover his head, forasmuch
as he is the image and glory of God: but the woman is the glory of the man.
1 Corinthians 11:8 For the man is not of the woman; but the woman of the
1 Corinthians 11:9 Neither was the man created for the woman; but the woman
for the man.
1 Corinthians 11:10 For this cause ought the woman to have power on her head
because of the angels.
1 Corinthians 11:11 Nevertheless neither is the man without the woman,
neither the woman without the man, in the Lord.
1 Corinthians 11:12 For as the woman is of the man, even so is the man also
by the woman; but all things of God.
1 Corinthians 11:13 Judge in yourselves: is it comely that a woman pray unto
1 Corinthians 11:14 Doth not even nature itself teach you, that, if a man
have long hair, it is a shame unto him?
1 Corinthians 11:15 But if a woman have long hair, it is a glory to her: for
her hair is given her for a covering.
1 Corinthians 11:16 But if any man seem to be contentious, we have no such
custom, neither the churches of God.
1 Corinthians 11:17 Now in this that I declare unto you I praise you not,
that ye come together not for the better, but for the worse.
1 Corinthians 11:18 For first of all, when ye come together in the church, I
hear that there be divisions among you; and I partly believe it.
1 Corinthians 11:19 For there must be also heresies among you, that they
which are approved may be made manifest among you.
1 Corinthians 11:20 When ye come together therefore into one place, this is
not to eat the Lord's supper.
1 Corinthians 11:21 For in eating every one taketh before other his own
supper: and one is hungry, and another is drunken.
1 Corinthians 11:22 What? have ye not houses to eat and to drink in? or
despise ye the church of God, and shame them that have not? What shall I say
to you? shall I praise you in this? I praise you not.
1 Corinthians 11:23 For I have received of the Lord that which also I
delivered unto you, That the Lord Jesus the same night in which he was
betrayed took bread:
1 Corinthians 11:24 And when he had given thanks, he brake it, and said,
Take, eat: this is my body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of
1 Corinthians 11:25 After the same manner also he took the cup, when he had
supped, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood: this do ye, as oft
as ye drink it, in remembrance of me.
1 Corinthians 11:26 For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup,
ye do show the Lord's death till he come.
1 Corinthians 11:27 Wherefore whosoever shall eat this bread, and drink this
cup of the Lord, unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and blood of the
1 Corinthians 11:28 But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of that
bread, and drink of that cup.
1 Corinthians 11:29 For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and
drinketh damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord's body.
1 Corinthians 11:30 For this cause many are weak and sickly among you, and
1 Corinthians 11:31 For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be
1 Corinthians 11:32 But when we are judged, we are chastened of the Lord,
that we should not be condemned with the world.
1 Corinthians 11:33 Wherefore, my brethren, when ye come together to eat,
tarry one for another.
1 Corinthians 11:34 And if any man hunger, let him eat at home; that ye come
not together unto condemnation. And the rest will I set in order when I come.
1 Corinthians 12:1 Now concerning spiritual gifts, brethren, I would not
have you ignorant.
1 Corinthians 12:2 Ye know that ye were Gentiles, carried away unto these
dumb idols, even as ye were led.
1 Corinthians 12:3 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.
1 Corinthians 12:4 Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit.
1 Corinthians 12:5 And there are differences of administrations, but the
1 Corinthians 12:6 And there are diversities of operations, but it is the
same God which worketh all in all.
1 Corinthians 12:7 But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man
to profit withal.
1 Corinthians 12:8 For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to
another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit;
1 Corinthians 12:9 To another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gifts
of healing by the same Spirit;
1 Corinthians 12:10 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:
1 Corinthians 12:11 But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit,
dividing to every man severally as he will.
1 Corinthians 12:12 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.
1 Corinthians 12:13 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.
1 Corinthians 12:14 For the body is not one member, but many.
1 Corinthians 12:15 If the foot shall say, Because I am not the hand, I am
not of the body; is it therefore not of the body?
1 Corinthians 12:16 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?
1 Corinthians 12:17 If the whole body were an eye, where were the hearing?
If the whole were hearing, where were the smelling?
1 Corinthians 12:18 But now hath God set the members every one of them in
the body, as it hath pleased him.
1 Corinthians 12:19 And if they were all one member, where were the body?
1 Corinthians 12:20 But now are they many members, yet but one body.
1 Corinthians 12:21 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.
1 Corinthians 12:22 Nay, much more those members of the body, which seem to
be more feeble, are necessary:
1 Corinthians 12:23 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.
1 Corinthians 12:24 For our comely parts have no need: but God hath tempered
the body together, having given more abundant honour to that part which
1 Corinthians 12:25 That there should be no schism in the body; but that the
members should have the same care one for another.
1 Corinthians 12:26 And whether one member suffer, all the members suffer
with it; or one member be honoured, all the members rejoice with it.
1 Corinthians 12:27 Now ye are the body of Christ, and members in
1 Corinthians 12:28 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.
1 Corinthians 12:29 Are all apostles? are all prophets? are all teachers? are
all workers of miracles?
1 Corinthians 12:30 Have all the gifts of healing? do all speak with
tongues? do all interpret?
1 Corinthians 12:31 But covet earnestly the best gifts: and yet show I unto
you a more excellent way.
1 Corinthians 13:1 Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and
have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.
1 Corinthians 13:2 And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand
all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could
remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing.
1 Corinthians 13:3 And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and
though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me
1 Corinthians 13:4 Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not;
charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up,
1 Corinthians 13:5 Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is
not easily provoked, thinketh no evil;
1 Corinthians 13:6 Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth;
1 Corinthians 13:7 Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all
things, endureth all things.
1 Corinthians 13:8 Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies,
they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be
knowledge, it shall vanish away.
1 Corinthians 13:9 For we know in part, and we prophesy in part.
1 Corinthians 13:10 But when that which is perfect is come, then that which
is in part shall be done away.
1 Corinthians 13:11 When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as
a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish
1 Corinthians 13:12 For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to
face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.
1 Corinthians 13:13 And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but
the greatest of these is charity.
1 Corinthians 14:1 Follow after charity, and desire spiritual gifts, but
rather that ye may prophesy.
1 Corinthians 14:2 For he that speaketh in an unknown tongue speaketh not
unto men, but unto God: for no man understandeth him; howbeit in the spirit he
1 Corinthians 14:3 But he that prophesieth speaketh unto men to edification,
and exhortation, and comfort.
1 Corinthians 14:4 He that speaketh in an unknown tongue edifieth himself;
but he that prophesieth edifieth the church.
1 Corinthians 14:5 I would that ye all spake with tongues, but rather that
ye prophesied: for greater is he that prophesieth than he that speaketh with
tongues, except he interpret, that the church may receive edifying.
1 Corinthians 14:6 Now, brethren, if I come unto you speaking with tongues,
what shall I profit you, except I shall speak to you either by revelation, or
by knowledge, or by prophesying, or by doctrine?
1 Corinthians 14:7 And even things without life giving sound, whether pipe
or harp, except they give a distinction in the sounds, how shall it be known
what is piped or harped?
1 Corinthians 14:8 For if the trumpet give an uncertain sound, who shall
prepare himself to the battle?
1 Corinthians 14:9 So likewise ye, except ye utter by the tongue words easy
to be understood, how shall it be known what is spoken? for ye shall speak
into the air.
1 Corinthians 14:10 There are, it may be, so many kinds of voices in the
world, and none of them is without signification.
1 Corinthians 14:11 Therefore if I know not the meaning of the voice, I
shall be unto him that speaketh a barbarian, and he that speaketh shall be a
barbarian unto me.
1 Corinthians 14:12 Even so ye, forasmuch as ye are zealous of spiritual
gifts, seek that ye may excel to the edifying of the church.
1 Corinthians 14:13 Wherefore let him that speaketh in an unknown tongue
pray that he may interpret.
1 Corinthians 14:14 For if I pray in an unknown tongue, my spirit prayeth,
but my understanding is unfruitful.
1 Corinthians 14:15 What is it then? I will pray with the spirit, and I will
pray with the understanding also: I will sing with the spirit, and I will sing
with the understanding also.
1 Corinthians 14:16 Else when thou shalt bless with the spirit, how shall he
that occupieth the room of the unlearned say Amen at thy giving of thanks,
seeing he understandeth not what thou sayest?
1 Corinthians 14:17 For thou verily givest thanks well, but the other is not
1 Corinthians 14:18 I thank my God, I speak with tongues more than ye all:
1 Corinthians 14:19 Yet in the church I had rather speak five words with my
understanding, that by my voice I might teach others also, than ten thousand
words in an unknown tongue.
1 Corinthians 14:20 Brethren, be not children in understanding: howbeit in
malice be ye children, but in understanding be men.
1 Corinthians 14:21 In the law it is written, With men of other tongues and
other lips will I speak unto this people; and yet for all that will they not
hear me, saith the Lord.
1 Corinthians 14:22 Wherefore tongues are for a sign, not to them that
believe, but to them that believe not: but prophesying serveth not for them
that believe not, but for them which believe.
1 Corinthians 14:23 If therefore the whole church be come together into one
place, and all speak with tongues, and there come in those that are unlearned,
or unbelievers, will they not say that ye are mad?
1 Corinthians 14:24 But if all prophesy, and there come in one that
believeth not, or one unlearned, he is convinced of all, he is judged of all:
1 Corinthians 14:25 And thus are the secrets of his heart made manifest; and
so falling down on his face he will worship God, and report that God is in you
of a truth.
1 Corinthians 14:26 How is it then, brethren? when ye come together, every
one of you hath a psalm, hath a doctrine, hath a tongue, hath a revelation,
hath an interpretation. Let all things be done unto edifying.
1 Corinthians 14:27 If any man speak in an unknown tongue, let it be by two,
or at the most by three, and that by course; and let one interpret.
1 Corinthians 14:28 But if there be no interpreter, let him keep silence in
the church; and let him speak to himself, and to God.
1 Corinthians 14:29 Let the prophets speak two or three, and let the other
1 Corinthians 14:30 If any thing be revealed to another that sitteth by, let
the first hold his peace.
1 Corinthians 14:31 For ye may all prophesy one by one, that all may learn,
and all may be comforted.
1 Corinthians 14:32 And the spirits of the prophets are subject to the
1 Corinthians 14:33 For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as
in all churches of the saints.
1 Corinthians 14:34 Let your women keep silence in the churches: for it is
not permitted unto them to speak; but they are commanded to be under
obedience, as also saith the law.
1 Corinthians 14:35 And if they will learn any thing, let them ask their
husbands at home: for it is a shame for women to speak in the church.
1 Corinthians 14:36 What? came the word of God out from you? or came it unto
1 Corinthians 14:37 If any man think himself to be a prophet, or spiritual,
let him acknowledge that the things that I write unto you are the commandments
of the Lord.
1 Corinthians 14:38 But if any man be ignorant, let him be ignorant.
1 Corinthians 14:39 Wherefore, brethren, covet to prophesy, and forbid not
to speak with tongues.
1 Corinthians 14:40 Let all things be done decently and in order.
1 Corinthians 15:1 Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I
preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand;
1 Corinthians 15:2 By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I
preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain.
1 Corinthians 15:3 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also
received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;
1 Corinthians 15:4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third
day according to the scriptures:
1 Corinthians 15:5 And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve:
1 Corinthians 15:6 After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at
once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen
1 Corinthians 15:7 After that, he was seen of James; then of all the
1 Corinthians 15:8 And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born
out of due time.
1 Corinthians 15:9 For I am the least of the apostles, that am not meet to
be called an apostle, because I persecuted the church of God.
1 Corinthians 15:10 But by the grace of God I am what I am: and his grace
which was bestowed upon me was not in vain; but I laboured more abundantly
than they all: yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me.
1 Corinthians 15:11 Therefore whether it were I or they, so we preach, and
so ye believed.
1 Corinthians 15:12 Now if Christ be preached that he rose from the dead,
how say some among you that there is no resurrection of the dead?
1 Corinthians 15:13 But if there be no resurrection of the dead, then is
Christ not risen:
1 Corinthians 15:14 And if Christ be not risen, then is our preaching vain,
and your faith is also vain.
1 Corinthians 15:15 Yea, and we are found false witnesses of God; because we
have testified of God that he raised up Christ: whom he raised not up, if so
be that the dead rise not.
1 Corinthians 15:16 For if the dead rise not, then is not Christ raised:
1 Corinthians 15:17 And if Christ be not raised, your faith is vain; ye are
yet in your sins.
1 Corinthians 15:18 Then they also which are fallen asleep in Christ are
1 Corinthians 15:19 If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of
all men most miserable.
1 Corinthians 15:20 But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the
firstfruits of them that slept.
1 Corinthians 15:21 For since by man came death, by man came also the
resurrection of the dead.
1 Corinthians 15:22 For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be
1 Corinthians 15:23 But every man in his own order: Christ the firstfruits;
afterward they that are Christ's at his coming.
1 Corinthians 15:24 Then cometh the end, when he shall have delivered up the
kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all
authority and power.
1 Corinthians 15:25 For he must reign, till he hath put all enemies under
1 Corinthians 15:26 The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death.
1 Corinthians 15:27 For he hath put all things under his feet. But when he
saith all things are put under him, it is manifest that he is excepted, which
did put all things under him.
1 Corinthians 15:28 And when all things shall be subdued unto him, then
shall the Son also himself be subject unto him that put all things under him,
that God may be all in all.
1 Corinthians 15:29 Else what shall they do which are baptized for the dead,
if the dead rise not at all? why are they then baptized for the dead?
1 Corinthians 15:30 And why stand we in jeopardy every hour?
1 Corinthians 15:31 I protest by your rejoicing which I have in Christ Jesus
our Lord, I die daily.
1 Corinthians 15:32 If after the manner of men I have fought with beasts at
Ephesus, what advantageth it me, if the dead rise not? let us eat and drink;
for to morrow we die.
1 Corinthians 15:33 Be not deceived: evil communications corrupt good
1 Corinthians 15:34 Awake to righteousness, and sin not; for some have not
the knowledge of God: I speak this to your shame.
1 Corinthians 15:35 But some man will say, How are the dead raised up? and
with what body do they come?
1 Corinthians 15:36 Thou fool, that which thou sowest is not quickened,
except it die:
1 Corinthians 15:37 And that which thou sowest, thou sowest not that body
that shall be, but bare grain, it may chance of wheat, or of some other grain:
1 Corinthians 15:38 But God giveth it a body as it hath pleased him, and to
every seed his own body.
1 Corinthians 15:39 All flesh is not the same flesh: but there is one kind of
flesh of men, another flesh of beasts, another of fishes, and another of
1 Corinthians 15:40 There are also celestial bodies, and bodies terrestrial:
but the glory of the celestial is one, and the glory of the terrestrial is
1 Corinthians 15:41 There is one glory of the sun, and another glory of the
moon, and another glory of the stars: for one star differeth from another star
1 Corinthians 15:42 So also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in
corruption; it is raised in incorruption:
1 Corinthians 15:43 It is sown in dishonour; it is raised in glory: it is
sown in weakness; it is raised in power:
1 Corinthians 15:44 It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual
body. There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body.
1 Corinthians 15:45 And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a
living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit.
1 Corinthians 15:46 Howbeit that was not first which is spiritual, but that
which is natural; and afterward that which is spiritual.
1 Corinthians 15:47 The first man is of the earth, earthy: the second man is
the Lord from heaven.
1 Corinthians 15:48 As is the earthy, such are they also that are earthy:
and as is the heavenly, such are they also that are heavenly.
1 Corinthians 15:49 And as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall
also bear the image of the heavenly.
1 Corinthians 15:50 Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot
inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption.
1 Corinthians 15:51 Behold, I show you a mystery; We shall not all sleep,
but we shall all be changed,
1 Corinthians 15:52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last
trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised
incorruptible, and we shall be changed.
1 Corinthians 15:53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this
mortal must put on immortality.
1 Corinthians 15:54 So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption,
and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass
the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.
1 Corinthians 15:55 O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy
1 Corinthians 15:56 The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is
1 Corinthians 15:57 But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory
through our Lord Jesus Christ.
1 Corinthians 15:58 Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast,
unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know
that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.
1 Corinthians 16:1 Now concerning the collection for the saints, as I have
given order to the churches of Galatia, even so do ye.
1 Corinthians 16:2 Upon the first day of the week let every one of you lay
by him in store, as God hath prospered him, that there be no gatherings when I
1 Corinthians 16:3 And when I come, whomsoever ye shall approve by your
letters, them will I send to bring your liberality unto Jerusalem.
1 Corinthians 16:4 And if it be meet that I go also, they shall go with me.
1 Corinthians 16:5 Now I will come unto you, when I shall pass through
Macedonia: for I do pass through Macedonia.
1 Corinthians 16:6 And it may be that I will abide, yea, and winter with
you, that ye may bring me on my journey whithersoever I go.
1 Corinthians 16:7 For I will not see you now by the way; but I trust to
tarry a while with you, if the Lord permit.
1 Corinthians 16:8 But I will tarry at Ephesus until Pentecost.
1 Corinthians 16:9 For a great door and effectual is opened unto me, and
there are many adversaries.
1 Corinthians 16:10 Now if Timotheus come, see that he may be with you
without fear: for he worketh the work of the Lord, as I also do.
1 Corinthians 16:11 Let no man therefore despise him: but conduct him forth
in peace, that he may come unto me: for I look for him with the brethren.
