1 Corinthians 3:12-22 (New International Version)

View In My Bible
12 If any man builds on this foundation using gold, silver, costly stones, wood, hay or straw, 13 his work will be shown for what it is,1 because the Day2 will bring it to light. It will be revealed with fire, and the fire will test the quality of each man's work.3 14 If what he has built survives, he will receive his reward.4 15 If it is burned up, he will suffer loss; he himself will be saved, but only as one escaping through the flames.5 16 Don't you know that you yourselves are God's temple6 and that God's Spirit lives in you?7 17 If anyone destroys God's temple, God will destroy him; for God's temple is sacred, and you are that temple. 18 Do not deceive yourselves. If any one of you thinks he is wise8 by the standards of this age,9 he should become a "fool" so that he may become wise. 19 For the wisdom of this world is foolishness10 in God's sight. As it is written: "He catches the wise in their craftiness"a;11 20 and again, "The Lord knows that the thoughts of the wise are futile."b12 21 So then, no more boasting about men!13 All things are yours,14 22 whether Paul or Apollos15 or Cephasc16 or the world or life or death or the present or the future17--all are yours,
