¶ 1 Corinthians 1 v1-3

{ heart }   [C1] 1v1

Paul called to be an apostle of JESUS CHRIST,
through the will of GOD, and Sosthenes our brother,

{ heart }   [C1] 1v2

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.

{ heart }   [C1] 1v3

Grace be unto you,
and peace from GOD our FATHER,
and from the LORD JESUS CHRIST.

¶ 1 Corinthians 1 v4-9

{ heart }   [C1] 1v4

I thank my GOD always on your behalf,
for the grace of GOD
which is given you by JESUS CHRIST,

{ heart }   [C1] 1v5

That in everything ye are enriched by HIM,
in all utterance, and in all knowledge:

{ heart }   [C1] 1v6

Even as the testimony of CHRIST
was confirmed in you.

{ heart }   [C1] 1v7

So that ye come behind in no gift; waiting
for the coming of our LORD JESUS CHRIST,

{ heart }   [C1] 1v8

WHO shall also confirm you unto the end,
that ye may be blameless
in the day of our LORD JESUS CHRIST.

{ heart }   [C1] 1v9

GOD is faithful by WHOM ye were called
unto the fellowship of HIS SON,

¶ 1 Corinthians 1 v10-16

{ heart }   [C1] 1v10

Now I beseech you brethren
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.

{ heart }   [C1] 1v11

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’.

{ heart }   [C1] 1v12

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’.

{ heart }   [C1] 1v13

Is CHRIST divided? was Paul crucified for you?
or were ye baptized in the name of Paul?

{ heart }   [C1] 1v14

I thank GOD that I baptized none of you,
but Crispus and Gaius,

{ heart }   [C1] 1v15

Lest any should say
that I had baptized in mine own name.

{ heart }   [C1] 1v16

And I baptized also the household of Stephanas:
besides, I know not whether I baptized any other.

¶ 1 Corinthians 1 v17-25

{ heart }   [C1] 1v17

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 none effect.

{ heart }   [C1] 1v18

For the preaching of the cross
is to them that perish, foolishness:
but unto us which are saved, it is the power of GOD.

{ heart }   [C1] 1v19

For it is written,

I will destroy the wisdom of the wise,
and will bring to nothing
the understanding of the prudent.

{ heart }   [C1] 1v20

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?

{ heart }   [C1] 1v21

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 believe.

{ heart }   [C1] 1v22

For the Jews require a sign,
and the Greeks seek after wisdom.

{ heart }   [C1] 1v23

But we preach CHRIST crucified,
unto the Jews a stumbling block,
and unto the Greeks, foolishness:

{ heart }   [C1] 1v24

But unto them which are called,
both Jews and Greeks, CHRIST, the power of GOD,
and the wisdom of GOD.

{ heart }   [C1] 1v25

Because the foolishness of GOD is wiser than men:
and the weakness of GOD is stronger than men.

¶ 1 Corinthians 1 v26-31

{ heart }   [C1] 1v26

For ye see your calling, brethren,
how that not many wise men after the flesh,
not many mighty, not many noble are called.

{ heart }   [C1] 1v27

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:

{ heart }   [C1] 1v28

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,

{ heart }   [C1] 1v29

That no flesh should glory in HIS presence.

{ heart }   [C1] 1v30

But of HIM are ye in CHRIST JESUS,
WHO of GOD is made unto us wisdom,
and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption:

{ heart }   [C1] 1v31

That according as it is written,

He that glorieth, let him glory in the LORD.

» 1 Corinthians 2

¶ 1 Corinthians 2 v1-5

{ heart }   [C1] 2v1

And I, brethren, when I came to you,
came not with excellency of speech or of wisdom,
declaring unto you the testimony of GOD.

{ heart }   [C1] 2v2

For I determined not to know any thing among you,
save JESUS CHRIST, and HIM crucified.

{ heart }   [C1] 2v3

And I was with you in weakness,
and in fear, and in much trembling.

{ heart }   [C1] 2v4

And my speech and my preaching
was not with enticing words of man's wisdom,
but in demonstration of the SPIRIT, and of power:

{ heart }   [C1] 2v5

That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men,
but in the power of GOD.

¶ 1 Corinthians 2 v6-13

{ heart }   [C1] 2v6

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 nought:

{ heart }   [C1] 2v7

But we speak the wisdom of GOD in a mystery,
even the hidden wisdom
which GOD ordained before the world, unto our glory;

{ heart }   [C1] 2v8

Which none of the princes of this world knew:
for had they known it,
they would not have crucified the LORD of glory.

{ heart }   [C1] 2v9

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.

{ heart }   [C1] 2v10

But GOD hath revealed them unto us
by HIS SPIRIT: for the SPIRIT searcheth all things,
yea, the deep things of GOD.

{ heart }   [C1] 2v11

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.

{ heart }   [C1] 2v12

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.

{ heart }   [C1] 2v13

Which things also we speak,
not in the words which man's wisdom teacheth,
but which the HOLY GHOST teacheth,
comparing spiritual things with spiritual.

¶ 1 Corinthians 2 v14-16

{ heart }   [C1] 2v14

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.

{ heart }   [C1] 2v15

But he that is spiritual judgeth all things,
yet he himself is judged of no man.

{ heart }   [C1] 2v16

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 Corinthians 3 v1-4

{ heart }   [C1] 3v1

And I, brethren, could not speak unto you
as unto spiritual, but as unto carnal,
even as unto babes in CHRIST.

{ heart }   [C1] 3v2

I have fed you with milk, and not with solid meat:
for hitherto ye were not able to bear it,
neither yet now are ye able.

{ heart }   [C1] 3v3

For ye are yet carnal: for whereas there is among you
envying, and strife, and divisions,
are ye not carnal, and walk as men?

{ heart }   [C1] 3v4

For while one saith,
‘I am of Paul’, and another, ‘I am of Apollos’,
are ye not carnal?

¶ 1 Corinthians 3 v5-9

{ heart }   [C1] 3v5

Who then is Paul? and who is Apollos?
but ministers by whom ye believed,
even as the LORD gave to every man?

{ heart }   [C1] 3v6

I have planted, Apollos watered:
but GOD gave the increase.

{ heart }   [C1] 3v7

So then, neither is he that planteth any thing,
neither he that watereth:
but GOD THAT giveth the increase.

{ heart }   [C1] 3v8

Now he that planteth, and he that watereth, are one:
and every man shall receive his own reward
according to his own labor.

{ heart }   [C1] 3v9

For we are laborers together with GOD,
ye are GOD'S husbandry, ye are GOD'S building.

¶ 1 Corinthians 3 v10-17

{ heart }   [C1] 3v10

According to the grace of GOD
which is given unto me,
as a wise master-builder I have laid the foundation,
and another buildeth thereon.
But let every man take heed
how he buildeth thereupon.

{ heart }   [C1] 3v11

For other foundation can no man lay,
than that which is laid, which is JESUS CHRIST.

{ heart }   [C1] 3v12

Now if any man build upon this foundation,
gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble:

{ heart }   [C1] 3v13

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.

{ heart }   [C1] 3v14

If any man's work abide which he hath built thereupon,
he shall receive a reward.

{ heart }   [C1] 3v15

If any man's work shall be burnt, he shall suffer loss:
but he himself shall be saved: yet so, as by fire.

{ heart }   [C1] 3v16

Know ye not that ye are the temple of GOD,
and that the SPIRIT of GOD dwelleth in you?

{ heart }   [C1] 3v17

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 v18-23

{ heart }   [C1] 3v18

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.

{ heart }   [C1] 3v19

For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with GOD.
For it is written,

HE taketh the wise in their own craftiness.

{ heart }   [C1] 3v20

And again,

The LORD knoweth the thoughts of the wise,
that they are vain.

{ heart }   [C1] 3v21

Therefore, let no man glory in men,
for all things are yours,

{ heart }   [C1] 3v22

Whether Paul, or Apollos, or Cephas,
or the world, or life, or death,
or things present, or things to come, all are yours.

{ heart }   [C1] 3v23

And ye are CHRIST'S, and CHRIST is GOD'S.

» 1 Corinthians 4

¶ 1 Corinthians 4 v1-5

{ heart }   [C1] 4v1

Let a man so account of us,
as of the ministers of CHRIST,
and stewards of the mysteries of GOD.

{ heart }   [C1] 4v2

Moreover, it is required in stewards,
that a man be found faithful.

{ heart }   [C1] 4v3

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.

{ heart }   [C1] 4v4

For I know nothing by myself,
yet am I not hereby justified:
but HE THAT judgeth me is the LORD.

{ heart }   [C1] 4v5

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 of GOD.

¶ 1 Corinthians 4 v6-13

{ heart }   [C1] 4v6

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.

{ heart }   [C1] 4v7

For WHO maketh thee to differ from another?
And what hast thou that thou diddest not receive?
Now if thou diddest receive it,
why dost thou glory as if thou hadst not received it?

{ heart }   [C1] 4v8

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 you.

{ heart }   [C1] 4v9

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.

{ heart }   [C1] 4v10

We are fools for CHRIST'S sake,
but ye are wise in CHRIST.
We are weak, but ye are strong:
ye are honorable, but we are despised.

{ heart }   [C1] 4v11

Even unto this present hour we both hunger,
and thirst, and are naked, and are buffeted,
and have no certain dwelling place,

{ heart }   [C1] 4v12

And labor, working with our own hands:
being reviled, we bless: being persecuted, we suffer it:

{ heart }   [C1] 4v13

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 v14-23

{ heart }   [C1] 4v14

I write not these things to shame you,
but as my beloved sons I warn you.

{ heart }   [C1] 4v15

For though you have ten thousand instructors
in CHRIST, yet have ye not many fathers:
For in CHRIST JESUS I have begotten you
through the Gospel.

{ heart }   [C1] 4v16

Wherefore I beseech you, be ye followers of me.

{ heart }   [C1] 4v17

For this cause have I sent unto you Timothy,
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 everywhere in every church.

{ heart }   [C1] 4v18

Now some are puffed up
as though I would not come to you.

{ heart }   [C1] 4v19

But I will come to you shortly, if the LORD will,
and will know,
not the speach of them which are puffed up,
but the power.

{ heart }   [C1] 4v20


The kingdom of GOD

Is not in word, but in power.

{ heart }   [C1] 4v21

What will ye? Shall I come unto you with a rod,
or in love, and in the spirit of meekness?

» 1 Corinthians 5

¶ 1 Corinthians 5 v1-5

{ heart }   [C1] 5v1

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.

{ heart }   [C1] 5v2

And ye are puffed up, and have not rather mourned,
that he that hath done this deed,
might be taken away from among you.

{ heart }   [C1] 5v3

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,

{ heart }   [C1] 5v4

when ye are gathered together, and my spirit,
with the power of our LORD JESUS CHRIST,

{ heart }   [C1] 5v5

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 v6-8

{ heart }   [C1] 5v6

Your glorying is not good:
know ye not that a little leaven
leaveneth the whole lump?

{ heart }   [C1] 5v7

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.

{ heart }   [C1] 5v8

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 v9-13

{ heart }   [C1] 5v9

I wrote unto you in an epistle

 ‘Not to company with fornicators’.

{ heart }   [C1] 5v10

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.

{ heart }   [C1] 5v11

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’.

{ heart }   [C1] 5v12

For what have I to do to judge them also
that are without?
do not ye judge them that are within?

{ heart }   [C1] 5v13

But them that are without, GOD judgeth.
Therefore put away from among yourselves
that wicked person.

» 1 Corinthians 6

¶ 1 Corinthians 6 v1-6

{ heart }   [C1] 6v1

Dare any of you, having a matter against another,
go to law before the unjust, and not before the Saints?

{ heart }   [C1] 6v2

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 matters?

{ heart }   [C1] 6v3

Do ye not know that we shall judge Angels?
How much more things that pertain to this life?

{ heart }   [C1] 6v4

If then ye have judgments of things
pertaining to this life, set them to judge
who are least esteemed in the church.

{ heart }   [C1] 6v5

I speak to your shame.
Is it so, that there is not a wise man amongst you?
no not one that shall be able to judge
between his brethren?

{ heart }   [C1] 6v6

But brother goeth to law with brother,
and that before the unbelievers

¶ 1 Corinthians 6 v7-11

{ heart }   [C1] 6v7

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?

{ heart }   [C1] 6v8

Nay, ye do wrong and defraud,
and that your brethren.

{ heart }   [C1] 6v9

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,

{ heart }   [C1] 6v10

Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers,
nor extortioners, shall inherit

The kingdom of GOD.

{ heart }   [C1] 6v11

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 v12-20

{ heart }   [C1] 6v12

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.

{ heart }   [C1] 6v13

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.

{ heart }   [C1] 6v14

And GOD hath both raised up the LORD,
and will also raise up us by HIS OWN power.

{ heart }   [C1] 6v15

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.

{ heart }   [C1] 6v16

What, know ye not that he which is joined to an harlot,
is one body?

For two,

(Saith HE)

Shall be one flesh.

{ heart }   [C1] 6v17

But he that is joined unto the LORD, is one spirit.

{ heart }   [C1] 6v18

Flee fornication:
Every sin that a man doeth is without the body:
but he that committeth fornication,
sinneth against his own body.

{ heart }   [C1] 6v19

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?

{ heart }   [C1] 6v20

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 Corinthians 7 v1-7

{ heart }   [C1] 7v1

Now concerning the things
whereof ye wrote unto me,

 ‘It is good for a man not to touch a woman’.

{ heart }   [C1] 7v2

Nevertheless, to avoid fornication,
let every man have his own wife,
and let every woman have her own husband.

{ heart }   [C1] 7v3

Let the husband render unto the wife
due benevolence:
and likewise also the wife unto the husband.

{ heart }   [C1] 7v4

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.

{ heart }   [C1] 7v5

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.

{ heart }   [C1] 7v6

But I speak this by permission, and not of commandment.

{ heart }   [C1] 7v7

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 that.

¶ 1 Corinthians 7 v8-9

{ heart }   [C1] 7v8

I say therefore to the unmarried and widows,

 ‘It is good for them if they abide even as I’.

{ heart }   [C1] 7v9

But if they cannot have contain, let them marry:
for it is better to marry than to burn.

¶ 1 Corinthians 7 v10-11

{ heart }   [C1] 7v10

And unto the married, I command,
yet not I, but the LORD,

 ‘Let not the wife depart from her husband’:

{ heart }   [C1] 7v11

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 v12-24

{ heart }   [C1] 7v12

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.

{ heart }   [C1] 7v13

And the woman which hath an husband
that believeth not,
and if he be pleased to dwell with her,
let her not leave him.

{ heart }   [C1] 7v14

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.

{ heart }   [C1] 7v15

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 peace.

{ heart }   [C1] 7v16

For what knowest thou, O wife,
whether thou shalt save thy husband?
or how knowest thou, O man,
whether thou shalt save thy wife?

{ heart }   [C1] 7v17

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.

{ heart }   [C1] 7v18

Is any man called being circumcised?
let him not become uncircumcised:
Is any called in uncircumcision?
let him not be circumcised.

{ heart }   [C1] 7v19

Circumcision is nothing,
and uncircumcision is nothing,
but the keeping of the commandments of GOD.

{ heart }   [C1] 7v20

Let every man abide in the same calling
wherein he was called.

{ heart }   [C1] 7v21

Art thou called being a servant? care not for it:
but if thou mayest be made free, use it rather.

{ heart }   [C1] 7v22

For he that is called in the LORD, being a servant,
is the LORD'S free man:
likewise also he that is called being free,
is CHRIST'S servant.

{ heart }   [C1] 7v23

Ye are bought with a price,
be not ye the servants of men.

{ heart }   [C1] 7v24

Brethren, let every man wherein he is called,
therein abide with GOD.

¶ 1 Corinthians 7 v25-31

{ heart }   [C1] 7v25

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 faithful.

{ heart }   [C1] 7v26

I suppose therefore that this is good
for the present distress, I say,

 ‘That it is good for a man so to be’.

{ heart }   [C1] 7v27

Art thou bound unto a wife? seek not to be loosed.
Art thou loosed from a wife? seek not a wife.

{ heart }   [C1] 7v28

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.

{ heart }   [C1] 7v29

But this I say, brethren,

 ‘The time is short.’ 

It remaineth that both they that have wives
be as though they had none:

{ heart }   [C1] 7v30

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 possessed not:

{ heart }   [C1] 7v31

And they that use this world, as not abusing it:
for the fashion of this world passeth away.

¶ 1 Corinthians 7 v32-40

{ heart }   [C1] 7v32

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 LORD:

{ heart }   [C1] 7v33

But he that is married,
careth for the things that are of the world,
how he may please his wife.

{ heart }   [C1] 7v34

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.

{ heart }   [C1] 7v35

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.

{ heart }   [C1] 7v36

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.

{ heart }   [C1] 7v37

Nevertheless, he that standeth steadfast 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.

{ heart }   [C1] 7v38

So then he that giveth her in marriage, doeth well:
but he that giveth her not in marriage, doeth better.

{ heart }   [C1] 7v39

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.

{ heart }   [C1] 7v40

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 Corinthians 8 v1-6

{ heart }   [C1] 8v1

Now as touching things offered unto idols,
we know that we all have knowledge.
Kowledge puffeth up: but charity edifieth.

{ heart }   [C1] 8v2

And if any man think that he knoweth any thing,
he knoweth nothing yet as he ought to know.

{ heart }   [C1] 8v3

But if any man love GOD,
the same is known of HIM.

{ heart }   [C1] 8v4

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.

{ heart }   [C1] 8v5

For though there be that are called gods,
whether in heaven or in earth
(as there be gods many, and lords many:)

{ heart }   [C1] 8v6

But to us there is but one GOD, the FATHER,
of WHOM are all things, and we in HIM,
by WHOM are all things, and we by HIM.

¶ 1 Corinthians 8 v7-13

{ heart }   [C1] 8v7

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.

{ heart }   [C1] 8v8

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.

{ heart }   [C1] 8v9

But take heed lest by any means,
this liberty of yours become a stumbling block
to them that are weak.

{ heart }   [C1] 8v10

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,

{ heart }   [C1] 8v11

And through thy knowledge
shall the weak brother perish,
for whom CHRIST died?

{ heart }   [C1] 8v12

But when ye sin so against the brethren,
and wound their weak conscience,
ye sin against CHRIST.

{ heart }   [C1] 8v13

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 Corinthians 9 v1-18

{ heart }   [C1] 9v1

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?

{ heart }   [C1] 9v2

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.

{ heart }   [C1] 9v3

Mine answer to them that do examine me, is this:

{ heart }   [C1] 9v4

Have we not power to eat and to drink?

{ heart }   [C1] 9v5

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?

{ heart }   [C1] 9v6

Or I only and Barnabas,
have not we power to forbear working?

{ heart }   [C1] 9v7

Who goeth a warfare at 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?

{ heart }   [C1] 9v8

Say I these things as a man?
or saith not the law the same also?

{ heart }   [C1] 9v9

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 oxen?

{ heart }   [C1] 9v10

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.

{ heart }   [C1] 9v11

If we have sown unto you spiritual things,
is it a great thing
if we shall reap your carnal things?

{ heart }   [C1] 9v12

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.

{ heart }   [C1] 9v13

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?

{ heart }   [C1] 9v14

Even so hath the LORD ordained,
that they which preach

The Gospel

Should live of the Gospel.

{ heart }   [C1] 9v15

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.

{ heart }   [C1] 9v16

For though I preach the Gospel,
I have nothing to glory of: or necessity is laid upon me,
yea, woe is unto me, if I preach not the Gospel.

{ heart }   [C1] 9v17

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.

{ heart }   [C1] 9v18

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 v19-23

{ heart }   [C1] 9v19

For though I be free from all men,
yet have I made myself servant unto all,
that I might gain the more.

{ heart }   [C1] 9v20

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:

{ heart }   [C1] 9v21

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.

{ heart }   [C1] 9v22

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.

{ heart }   [C1] 9v23

And this I do for the Gospel's sake,
that I might be partaker thereof with you.

¶ 1 Corinthians 9 v24-27

{ heart }   [C1] 9v24

Know ye not that they which run in a race,
run all, but one receiveth the prize?
So run, that ye may obtain.

{ heart }   [C1] 9v25

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 incorruptible.

{ heart }   [C1] 9v26

I therefore so run, not as uncertainly:
so fight I, not as one that beateth the air:

{ heart }   [C1] 9v27

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 castaway.

» 1 Corinthians 10

¶ 1 Corinthians 10 v1-13

{ heart }   [C1] 10v1

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:

{ heart }   [C1] 10v2

And were all baptized unto Moses in the cloud,
and in the sea:

{ heart }   [C1] 10v3

And did all eat the same spiritual meat:

{ heart }   [C1] 10v4

And did all drink the same spiritual drink:
(for they drank of that spiritual ROCK
THAT followed them:

{ heart }   [C1] 10v5

But with many of them GOD was not well pleased:
for they were overthrown in the wilderness.

{ heart }   [C1] 10v6

Now these things were our examples,
to the intent we should not lust after evil things,
as they also lusted.

{ heart }   [C1] 10v7

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.

{ heart }   [C1] 10v8

Neither let us commit fornication,
as some of them committed,
and fell in one day three and twenty thousand.

{ heart }   [C1] 10v9

Neither let us tempt CHRIST,
as some of them also tempted,
and were destroyed of serpents.

{ heart }   [C1] 10v10

Neither murmur ye, as some of them also murmured,
and were destroyed of the Destroyer.

{ heart }   [C1] 10v11

Now all these things happened unto them
for ensamples,
and they are written for our admonition,
upon whom the ends of the world are come.

{ heart }   [C1] 10v12

Wherefore, let him that thinketh he standeth,
take heed lest he fall.

{ heart }   [C1] 10v13

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 v14-22

{ heart }   [C1] 10v14

Wherefore my dearly beloved, flee from idolatry.

{ heart }   [C1] 10v15

I speak as to wise men: judge ye what I say.

{ heart }   [C1] 10v16

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?

{ heart }   [C1] 10v17

For we being many are one bread, and one body:
for we are all partakers of that one bread.

{ heart }   [C1] 10v18

Behold Israel after the flesh:
are not they which eat of the sacrifices,
partakers of the altar?

{ heart }   [C1] 10v19

What say I then? that the idol is any thing,
or that which is offered in sacrifice to idols
is any thing?

{ heart }   [C1] 10v20

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’.

{ heart }   [C1] 10v21

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 Devils.

{ heart }   [C1] 10v22

Do we provoke the LORD to jealousy?
are we stronger than HE?

¶ 1 Corinthians 10 v23-33

{ heart }   [C1] 10v23

All things are lawful for me,
but all things are not expedient:
All things are lawful for me, but all things edify not.

{ heart }   [C1] 10v24

Let no man seek his own:
but every man another's wealth.

{ heart }   [C1] 10v25

Whatsoever is sold in the shambles, that eat,
asking no question for conscience sake.

{ heart }   [C1] 10v26

For the earth is the LORD'S,
and the fullness thereof.

{ heart }   [C1] 10v27

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.

{ heart }   [C1] 10v28

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.
The earth is the LORD'S, and the fullness thereof.

{ heart }   [C1] 10v29

Conscience I say, not thine own, but of the other:
for why is my liberty judged
of another man's conscience?

{ heart }   [C1] 10v30

For, if I by grace be a partaker,
why am I evil spoken of,
for that for which I give thanks?

{ heart }   [C1] 10v31

Whether therefore ye eat or drink,
or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of GOD.

{ heart }   [C1] 10v32

Give none offence, neither to the Jews,
nor to the Gentiles, nor to the church of GOD:

{ heart }   [C1] 10v33

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 Corinthians 11 v1

{ heart }   [C1] 11v1

Be ye followers of me,
even as I also am of CHRIST.

¶ 1 Corinthians 11 v2-6

{ heart }   [C1] 11v2

Now I praise you, brethren,
that ye remember me in all things,
and keep the ordinances, as I delivered them to you.

{ heart }   [C1] 11v3

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.

{ heart }   [C1] 11v4

Every man praying or prophesying,
having his head covered, dishonoreth his head.

{ heart }   [C1] 11v5

But every woman that prayeth or prophesieth
with her head uncovered, dishonoreth her head:
for that is even all one as if she were shaven.

{ heart }   [C1] 11v6

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.

{ heart }   [C1] 11v7

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.

{ heart }   [C1] 11v8

For the man is not of the woman:
but the woman of the man.

{ heart }   [C1] 11v9

Neither was the man created for the woman:
but the woman for the man.

{ heart }   [C1] 11v10

For this cause ought the woman to have power
on her head, because of the Angels.

{ heart }   [C1] 11v11

Nevertheless, neither is the man without the woman,
neither the woman without the man in the LORD.

{ heart }   [C1] 11v12

For as the woman is of the man:
even so is the man also by the woman;
but all things of GOD.

{ heart }   [C1] 11v13

Judge in yourselves:
is it comely that a woman pray unto GOD uncovered?

{ heart }   [C1] 11v14

Doth not even nature itself teach you
that if a man have long hair, it is a shame unto him?

{ heart }   [C1] 11v15

But if a woman have long hair, it is a glory to her:
for her hair is given her for a covering.

{ heart }   [C1] 11v16

But if any man seem to be contentious,
we have no such custom,
neither the churches of GOD.

¶ 1 Corinthians 11 v17-34

{ heart }   [C1] 11v17

Now in this that I declare unto you, I praise you not,
that you come together not for the better,
but for the worse.

{ heart }   [C1] 11v18

For first of all when ye come together in the church,
I hear

 ‘That there be divisions among you;’ 

And I partly believe it.

{ heart }   [C1] 11v19

For there must be also heresies among you,
that they which are approved
may be made manifest among you.

{ heart }   [C1] 11v20

When ye come together therefore into one place,
this is not to eat the LORD'S supper.

{ heart }   [C1] 11v21

For in eating, every one taketh before other,
his own supper:
and one is hungry, and an other is drunk.

{ heart }   [C1] 11v22

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.

{ heart }   [C1] 11v23

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:

{ heart }   [C1] 11v24

And when HE had given thanks, HE broke it,
and said,

Take, eat, this is MY body, which is broken for you:
this do in remembrance of ME.

{ heart }   [C1] 11v25

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.

{ heart }   [C1] 11v26

For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup,
ye do show the LORD'S death till HE come.

{ heart }   [C1] 11v27

Wherefore, whosoever shall eat this bread,
and drink this cup of the LORD unworthily,
shall be guilty of the body and blood of the LORD.

{ heart }   [C1] 11v28

But let a man examine himself,
and so let him eat of that bread, and drink of that cup.

{ heart }   [C1] 11v29

For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily,
eateth and drinketh damnation to himself,
not discerning the LORD'S body.

{ heart }   [C1] 11v30

For this cause many are weak and sickly among you,
and many sleep.

{ heart }   [C1] 11v31

For if we would judge ourselves,
we should not be judged.

{ heart }   [C1] 11v32

But when we are judged,
we are chastened of the LORD,
that we should not be condemned with the world.

{ heart }   [C1] 11v33

Wherefore my brethren,
when ye come together to eat, tarry one for another.

{ heart }   [C1] 11v34

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 Corinthians 12 v1-3

{ heart }   [C1] 12v1

Now concerning spiritual gifts, brethren,
I would not have you ignorant.

{ heart }   [C1] 12v2

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

{ heart }   [C1] 12v3

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 v4-11

{ heart }   [C1] 12v4

Now there are diversities of gifts,
but the SAME SPIRIT.

{ heart }   [C1] 12v5

And there are differences of administrations,
but the SAME LORD.

{ heart }   [C1] 12v6

And there are diversities of operations,
but it is the SAME GOD, WHICH worketh all in all.

{ heart }   [C1] 12v7

But the manifestation of the SPIRIT,
is given to every man to profit withal.

{ heart }   [C1] 12v8

For to one is given by the SPIRIT,
the word of wisdom,
to another the word of knowledge

{ heart }   [C1] 12v9

To another faith, by the SAME SPIRIT:
to another the gifts of healing, by the SAME SPIRIT:

{ heart }   [C1] 12v10

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.

{ heart }   [C1] 12v11

But all these worketh
dividing to every man severally as HE will.

¶ 1 Corinthians 12 v12-13

{ heart }   [C1] 12v12

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.

{ heart }   [C1] 12v13

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 v14-26

{ heart }   [C1] 12v14

For the body is not one member, but many.

{ heart }   [C1] 12v15

If the foot shall say,
‘Because I am not the hand, I am not of the body’:
Is it therefore not of the body?

{ heart }   [C1] 12v16

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?

{ heart }   [C1] 12v17

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

{ heart }   [C1] 12v18

But now hath GOD set the members,
every one of them in the body, as it hath pleased HIM.

{ heart }   [C1] 12v19

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

{ heart }   [C1] 12v20

But now are they many members, yet but one body.

{ heart }   [C1] 12v21

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’.

{ heart }   [C1] 12v22

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

{ heart }   [C1] 12v23

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

{ heart }   [C1] 12v24

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

{ heart }   [C1] 12v25

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

{ heart }   [C1] 12v26

And whether one member suffer,
all the members suffer with it:
or one member be honored,
all the members rejoice with it.

¶ 1 Corinthians 12 v27-31

{ heart }   [C1] 12v27

Now ye are the body of CHRIST,
and members in particular.

{ heart }   [C1] 12v28

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

{ heart }   [C1] 12v29

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

{ heart }   [C1] 12v30

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

{ heart }   [C1] 12v31

But covet earnestly the best gifts:
And yet show I unto you a more excellent way.

» 1 Corinthians 13

¶ 1 Corinthians 13 v1-3

{ heart }   [C1] 13v1

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.

{ heart }   [C1] 13v2

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.

{ heart }   [C1] 13v3

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 nothing.

¶ 1 Corinthians 13 v4-7

{ heart }   [C1] 13v4

Charity suffereth long, and is kind:
charity envieth not:
charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up,

{ heart }   [C1] 13v5

Doth not behave itself unseemly,
seeketh not her own,
is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil,

{ heart }   [C1] 13v6

Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth:

{ heart }   [C1] 13v7

Beareth all things, believeth all things,
hopeth all things, endureth all things.

¶ 1 Corinthians 13 v8-13

{ heart }   [C1] 13v8

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.

{ heart }   [C1] 13v9

For we know in part, and we prophesy in part.

{ heart }   [C1] 13v10

But when that which is perfect is come,
then that which is in part, shall be done away.

{ heart }   [C1] 13v11

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 things.

{ heart }   [C1] 13v12

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.

{ heart }   [C1] 13v13

And now abideth faith, hope, charity,
these three, but the greatest of these is charity.

» 1 Corinthians 14

¶ 1 Corinthians 14 v1-6

{ heart }   [C1] 14v1

Follow after charity, and desire spiritual gifts,
but rather that ye may prophesy.

{ heart }   [C1] 14v2

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 speaketh mysteries.

{ heart }   [C1] 14v3

But he that prophesieth, speaketh unto men
to edification, and exhortation, and comfort.

{ heart }   [C1] 14v4

He that speaketh in an unknown tongue,
edifieth himself:
but he that prophesieth, edifieth the church.

{ heart }   [C1] 14v5

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.

{ heart }   [C1] 14v6

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 v7-19

{ heart }   [C1] 14v7

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?

{ heart }   [C1] 14v8

For if the trumpet give an uncertain sound,
who shall prepare himself to the battle?

{ heart }   [C1] 14v9

So likewise you, 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.

{ heart }   [C1] 14v10

There are, it may be, so many kinds of voices
in the world,
and none of them is without signification.

{ heart }   [C1] 14v11

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.

{ heart }   [C1] 14v12

Even so ye, forasmuch as ye are zealous
of spiritual gifts,
seek that ye may excel to the edifying of the church.

{ heart }   [C1] 14v13

Wherefore let him that speaketh
in an unknown tongue, pray that he may interpret.

{ heart }   [C1] 14v14

For if I pray in an unknown tongue,
my spirit prayeth, but my understanding is unfruitful.

{ heart }   [C1] 14v15

What is it then? I will pray with the SPIRIT,
and will pray with the understanding also:
I will sing with the SPIRIT,
and I will sing with the understanding also.

{ heart }   [C1] 14v16

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?

{ heart }   [C1] 14v17

For thou verily givest thanks well:
but the other is not edified.

{ heart }   [C1] 14v18

I thank my GOD,
I speak with tongues more than you all.

{ heart }   [C1] 14v19

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 v20-25

{ heart }   [C1] 14v20

Brethren, be not children in understanding:
howbeit, in malice be ye children,
but in understanding be men.

{ heart }   [C1] 14v21

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.

{ heart }   [C1] 14v22

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.

{ heart }   [C1] 14v23

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’?

{ heart }   [C1] 14v24

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.

{ heart }   [C1] 14v25

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 v26-36

{ heart }   [C1] 14v26

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.

{ heart }   [C1] 14v27

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.

{ heart }   [C1] 14v28

But if there be no interpreter,
let him keep silence in the church,
and let him speak to himself, and to GOD.

{ heart }   [C1] 14v29

Let the prophets speak two or three,
and let the other judge.

{ heart }   [C1] 14v30

If any thing be revealed to another that sitteth by,
let the first hold his peace.

{ heart }   [C1] 14v31

For ye may all prophesy one by one,
that all may learn, and all may be comforted.

{ heart }   [C1] 14v32

And the spirits of the prophets
are subject to the prophets.

{ heart }   [C1] 14v33

For GOD is not the author of confusion
but of peace, as in all churches of the Saints.

{ heart }   [C1] 14v34

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.

{ heart }   [C1] 14v35

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.

{ heart }   [C1] 14v36

What? came the word of GOD out from you?
or came it unto you only?

¶ 1 Corinthians 14 v37-40

{ heart }   [C1] 14v37

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.

{ heart }   [C1] 14v38

But if any man be ignorant, let him be ignorant.

{ heart }   [C1] 14v39

Wherefore brethren, covet to prophesy,
and forbid not to speak with tongues.

{ heart }   [C1] 14v40

Let all things be done decently, and in order.

» 1 Corinthians 15

¶ 1 Corinthians 15 v1-11

{ heart }   [C1] 15v1

Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you

 ‘The Gospel’ 

Which I preached unto you,
which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand.

{ heart }   [C1] 15v2

By which also ye are saved,
if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you,
unless ye have believed in vain.

{ heart }   [C1] 15v3

For I delivered unto you first of all,
that which I also received,
how that CHRIST died for our sins
according to the Scriptures:

{ heart }   [C1] 15v4

And that HE was buried,
and that HE rose again the third day,
according to the Scriptures.

{ heart }   [C1] 15v5

And that HE was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve.

{ heart }   [C1] 15v6

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 asleep.

{ heart }   [C1] 15v7

After that, HE was seen of James:
then of all the apostles.

{ heart }   [C1] 15v8

And last of all HE was seen of me also,
as of one born out of due time.

{ heart }   [C1] 15v9

For I am the least of the apostles,
that am not meet to be called an apostle
because I persecuted the church of GOD.

{ heart }   [C1] 15v10

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 labored more abundantly than they all,
yet not I, but the grace of GOD which was with me:

{ heart }   [C1] 15v11

Therefore, whether it were I or they,
so we preach, and so ye believed.

¶ 1 Corinthians 15 v12-19

{ heart }   [C1] 15v12

Now if CHRIST be preached

 ‘That HE rose from the dead,’ 

How say some among you

 ‘That there is no resurrection of the dead’?

{ heart }   [C1] 15v13

But if there be no resurrection of the dead,
then is CHRIST not risen.

{ heart }   [C1] 15v14

And if CHRIST be not risen,
then is our preaching vain, and your faith is also vain:

{ heart }   [C1] 15v15

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.

{ heart }   [C1] 15v16

For if the dead rise not, then is not CHRIST raised.

{ heart }   [C1] 15v17

And if CHRIST be not raised, your faith is vain,
ye are yet in your sins.

{ heart }   [C1] 15v18

Then they also which are fallen asleep in CHRIST,
are perished.

{ heart }   [C1] 15v19

If in this life only we have hope in CHRIST,
we are of all men most miserable.

¶ 1 Corinthians 15 v20-28

{ heart }   [C1] 15v20

But now is CHRIST risen from the dead,
and become the first fruits of them that slept.

{ heart }   [C1] 15v21

For since by man came death,
by MAN came also the resurrection of the dead.

{ heart }   [C1] 15v22

For as in Adam all die,
even so in CHRIST shall all be made alive.

{ heart }   [C1] 15v23

But every man in his own order.
CHRIST the first fruits,
afterward they that are CHRIST'S, at HIS coming.

{ heart }   [C1] 15v24

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.

{ heart }   [C1] 15v25

For HE must reign,
till HE hath put all enemies under HIS feet.

{ heart }   [C1] 15v26

The last enemy that shall be destroyed, is death.

{ heart }   [C1] 15v27

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.

{ heart }   [C1] 15v28

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 v29-34

{ heart }   [C1] 15v29

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?

{ heart }   [C1] 15v30

And why stand we in jeopardy every hour?

{ heart }   [C1] 15v31

I protest by your rejoicing
which I have in CHRIST JESUS our LORD,
I die daily.

{ heart }   [C1] 15v32

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 tomorrow we die.

{ heart }   [C1] 15v33

Be not deceived:
evil communications corrupt good manners.

{ heart }   [C1] 15v34

Awake to righteousness, and sin not:
for some have not the knowledge of GOD,
I speak this to your shame.

¶ 1 Corinthians 15 v35-49

{ heart }   [C1] 15v35

But some man will say,

 ‘How are the dead raised up?
and with what body do they come?’ 

{ heart }   [C1] 15v36

Thou fool, that which thou sowest,
is not quickened except it die.

{ heart }   [C1] 15v37

And that which thou sowest,
thou sowest not that body that shall be,
but a bare grain,
it may chance of wheat, or of some other grain.

{ heart }   [C1] 15v38

But GOD giveth it a body as it hath pleased HIM,
and to every seed his own body.

{ heart }   [C1] 15v39

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 birds.

{ heart }   [C1] 15v40

There are also celestial bodies, and bodies terrestrial:
But the glory of the celestial is one,
and the glory of the terrestrial is another.

{ heart }   [C1] 15v41

There is one glory of the sun,
and another of the moon,
and another glory of the stars:
for one star differeth from another star in glory.

{ heart }   [C1] 15v42

So also is the resurrection of the dead,
it is sown in corruption, it is raised in incorruption.

{ heart }   [C1] 15v43

It is sown in dishonor, it is raised in glory:
it is sown in weakness, it is raised in power:

{ heart }   [C1] 15v44

It is sown a natural body, it is raised a spiritual body.
There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body.

{ heart }   [C1] 15v45

And so it is written:

The first man Adam was made a living soul,
the last ADAM was made a quickening SPIRIT.

{ heart }   [C1] 15v46

Howbeit that was not first which is spiritual:
but that which is natural,
and afterward that which is spiritual.

{ heart }   [C1] 15v47

The first man is of the earth, earthy:
The second MAN is the LORD from heaven.

{ heart }   [C1] 15v48

As is the earthy, such are they that are earthy,
and as is the heavenly,
such are they also that are heavenly.

{ heart }   [C1] 15v49

And as we have borne the image of the earthy,
we shall also bear the image of the heavenly.

¶ 1 Corinthians 15 v50-58

{ heart }   [C1] 15v50

Now this I say, brethren,

 ‘That flesh and blood cannot inherit

The kingdom of GOD:

Neither doth corruption inherit incorruption’.

{ heart }   [C1] 15v51

Behold, I show you a mystery:
we shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,

{ heart }   [C1] 15v52

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.)

{ heart }   [C1] 15v53

For this corruptible must put on incorruption,
and this mortal must put on immortality.

{ heart }   [C1] 15v54

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.

{ heart }   [C1] 15v55

O death, where is thy sting?
O grave, where is thy victory?

{ heart }   [C1] 15v56

The sting of death is sin,
and the strength of sin is the law.

{ heart }   [C1] 15v57

But thanks be to GOD, WHICH giveth us the victory,
through our LORD JESUS CHRIST.

{ heart }   [C1] 15v58

Therefore my beloved brethren,
be ye steadfast, unmovable,
always abounding in the work of the LORD,
forasmuch as you know that your labor is not in vain
in the LORD.

» 1 Corinthians 16

¶ 1 Corinthians 16 v1-4

{ heart }   [C1] 16v1

Now concerning the collection for the Saints,
as I have given order to the churches of Galatia,
even so do ye.

{ heart }   [C1] 16v2

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 come.

{ heart }   [C1] 16v3

And when I come,
whomsoever ye shall approve by your letters,
them will I send to bring your liberality
unto Jerusalem.

{ heart }   [C1] 16v4

And if it be suitable that I go also,
they shall go with me.

¶ 1 Corinthians 16 v5-9

{ heart }   [C1] 16v5

Now I will come unto you,
when I shall pass through Macedonia:
for I do pass through Macedonia.

{ heart }   [C1] 16v6

And it may be that I will abide,
yea, and winter with you,
that ye may bring me on my journey,
whithersoever I go.

{ heart }   [C1] 16v7

For I will not see you now by the way,
but I trust to tarry a while with you, if the LORD permit.

{ heart }   [C1] 16v8

But I will tarry at Ephesus until Pentecost.

{ heart }   [C1] 16v9

For a great door and effectual is opened unto me,
and there are many adversaries.

¶ 1 Corinthians 16 v10-12

{ heart }   [C1] 16v10

Now if Timothy come,
see that he may be with you without fear:
for he worketh the work of the LORD, as I also do.

{ heart }   [C1] 16v11

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.

{ heart }   [C1] 16v12

As touching our brother Apollos,
I greatly desired him to come unto you
with the brethren,
but his will was not at all to come at this time:
but he will come when he shall have convenient time.

¶ 1 Corinthians 16 v13-14

{ heart }   [C1] 16v13

Watch ye, stand fast in the faith,
quit you like men: be strong.

{ heart }   [C1] 16v14

Let all your things be done with charity.

¶ 1 Corinthians 16 v15-18

{ heart }   [C1] 16v15

I beseech you, brethren
(ye know the house of Stephanas,
that it is the first fruits of Achaia,
and that they have addicted themselves
to the ministry of the Saints,)

{ heart }   [C1] 16v16

That ye submit yourselves unto such,
and to every one that helpeth with us and laboreth.

{ heart }   [C1] 16v17

I am glad of the coming of Stephanas,
and Fortunatus, and Achaicus:
for that which was lacking on your part,
they have supplied.

{ heart }   [C1] 16v18

For they have refreshed my spirit and yours:
therefore acknowledge ye them that are such.

¶ 1 Corinthians 16 v19-20

{ heart }   [C1] 16v19

The churches of Asia salute you:
Aquila and Priscilla salute you much in the LORD,
with the church that is in their house.

{ heart }   [C1] 16v20

All the brethren greet you:
greet ye one another with an holy kiss.

¶ 1 Corinthians 16 v21-24

{ heart }   [C1] 16v21

The salutation of me Paul, with mine own hand.

{ heart }   [C1] 16v22

If any man love not the LORD JESUS CHRIST,
let him be Anathema Maranatha.

{ heart }   [C1] 16v23

The grace of our LORD JESUS CHRIST
be with you.

{ heart }   [C1] 16v24

My love be with you all in CHRIST JESUS.

The first Epistle to the Corinthians
was written from Philippi by Stephanas,
and Fortunatus, and Achaicus, and Timothy.
