Now, brothers, I have applied these things to myself and Apollos for your benefit, so that you may learn from us the meaning of the saying, "Do not go beyond what is written."1 Then you will not take pride in one man over against another.27
For who makes you different from anyone else? What do you have that you did not receive?3 And if you did receive it, why do you boast as though you did not?
Already you have all you want! Already you have become rich!4 You have become kings--and that without us! How I wish that you really had become kings so that we might be kings with you!
