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 for edification.
If any man speak in an unknown tongue, let it be by two or at the most by three, and then in turn, and let one interpret.
But if there be no interpreter, let him keep silence in the church, and let him speak to himself and to God.
Let two or three prophets speak, and let the others judge.
If anything be revealed to another who sitteth by, let theŒfirst hold his peace.
For ye may all prophesy one by one, that all may learn and all may be comforted.
The spirits of the prophets are subject to the prophets,
for God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as it is in all churches of the saints.
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.
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.
What? Did the Word of God come out from you? Or did it come unto you only?
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.
But if any man be ignorant, let him be ignorant.
Therefore, brethren, covet to prophesy, and forbid not to speak in tongues.
Let all things be done decently and in order.
