To one there is given through the Spirit the message of wisdom,1 to another the message of knowledge2 by means of the same Spirit,
to another faith3 by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healing4 by that one Spirit,
to another miraculous powers,5 to another prophecy,6 to another distinguishing between spirits,7 to another speaking in different kinds of tongues,a8 and to still another the interpretation of tongues.b11
All these are the work of one and the same Spirit,9 and he gives them to each one, just as he determines.
The body is a unit, though it is made up of many parts; and though all its parts are many, they form one body.10 So it is with Christ.1113
For we were all baptized12 byc one Spirit13 into one body--whether Jews or Greeks, slave or free14--and we were all given the one Spirit to drink.1514
Now the body is not made up of one part but of many.1615
If the foot should say, "Because I am not a hand, I do not belong to the body," it would not for that reason cease to be part of the body.
And if the ear should say, "Because I am not an eye, I do not belong to the body," it would not for that reason cease to be part of the body.
If the whole body were an eye, where would the sense of hearing be? If the whole body were an ear, where would the sense of smell be?
But in fact God has arranged17 the parts in the body, every one of them, just as he wanted them to be.18
