12Foras the bodyisone,andhathmanymembers,andall the members of that onebody,beingmany,areonebody:soalso is Christ.13ForbyoneSpiritareweallbaptizedintoonebody,whether we be JewsorGentiles,awhether we be bondorfree;and have beenall made to drinkintooneSpirit.14For the bodyisnotonemember,butmany.15If the foot shall say , Because I amnot the hand, I amnotof the body;is it thereforenotof the body?16Andif the ear shall say , Because I amnot the eye, I amnotof the body;is it thereforenotof the body?17If the wholebody were an eye,where were the hearing?If the whole were hearing,where were the smelling?18ButnowhathGodset the memberseveryone of themin the body,as it hath pleased him .
19Andif they wereallonemember,where were the body?20Butnoware they manymembers, yet butonebody.21And the eyecannotsay unto the hand, I havenoneed of thee:noragain the head to the feet, I havenoneed of you.22Nay,muchmore those members of the body, which seem to be more feeble,arenecessary:23Andthose members of the body, which we think to be less honourable, upon these we bestowb more abundanthonour;andouruncomely parts have more abundantcomeliness.24Forourcomely parts havenoneed:butGod hath tempered the bodytogether , having given more abundanthonour to that part which lacked :
25That there should benoschismcin the body;but that the members should have the samecare one foranother.26Andwhetheronemembersuffer , all the members suffer with it ; oronemember be honoured , all the members rejoice with it .
27Nowyeare the body of Christ,andmembersinparticular.28AndGod hath setsomein the church,firstapostles,secondarilyprophets,thirdlyteachers, after thatmiracles,thengifts of healings,helps,governments,diversitiesd of tongues.29
Are allapostles? are allprophets? are allteachers? are allworkers of miracles?30Haveall the gifts of healing? do allspeak with tongues?doallinterpret ?
31But covet earnestly the bestgifts:andyet shew I unto you a moreexcellentway.
