King James Version1 Corinthians3

1 Corinthians

1 And I, brethren, could not speak unto you as unto spir­i­tu­al, but as unto car­nal, even as unto babes in Christ. 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. 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? 4 For while one saith, I am of Paul; and an­oth­er, I am of Apol­los; are ye not car­nal? 5 Who then is Paul, and who is Apol­los, but min­is­ters by whom ye be­lieved, even as the Lord gave to ev­ery man? 6 I have plant­ed, Apol­los wa­tered; but God gave the in­crease. 7 So then nei­ther is he that planteth any thing, nei­ther he that wa­tereth; but God that giveth the in­crease. 8 Now he that planteth and he that wa­tereth are one: and ev­ery man shall re­ceive his own re­ward ac­cord­ing to his own labour. 9 For we are labour­ers to­geth­er with God: ye are God's hus­bandry, ye are God's build­ing. 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. 11 For oth­er foun­da­tion can no man lay than that is laid, which is Je­sus Christ. 12 Now if any man build upon this foun­da­tion gold, sil­ver, pre­cious stones, wood, hay, stub­ble; 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. 14 If any man's work abide which he hath built there­upon, he shall re­ceive a re­ward. 15 If any man's work shall be burned, he shall suf­fer loss: but he him­self shall be saved; yet so as by fire. 16 Know ye not that ye are the tem­ple of God, and that the Spir­it of God dwelleth in you? 17 If any man de­file the tem­ple of God, him shall God de­stroy; for the tem­ple of God is holy, which temple ye are. 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. 19 For the wis­dom of this world is fool­ish­ness with God. For it is writ­ten, He taketh the wise in their own crafti­ness. 20 And again, The Lord knoweth the thoughts of the wise, that they are vain. 21 There­fore let no man glo­ry in men. For all things are yours; 22 Whether Paul, or Apol­los, or Cephas, or the world, or life, or death, or things pre­sent, or things to come; all are yours; 23 And ye are Christ's; and Christ is God's.
