1Nowconcerningspiritual gifts, brethren, I wouldnothaveyouignorant .
Ye knowthat ye wereGentiles, carried awayunto these dumbidols, even asye were led .
3Wherefore I giveyou to understand , that no manspeakingby the Spirit of GodcallethJesusaccursed:aand that no mancansay that Jesus is the Lord,butby the HolyGhost.4Now there arediversities of gifts,but the sameSpirit.5And there aredifferences of administrations,bbut the sameLord.6And there arediversities of operations,but it is the sameGodwhichworkethallinall.7But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every manto profit withal .
8For to oneisgivenby the Spirit the word of wisdom ; to another the word of knowledgeby the sameSpirit;9Toanotherfaithby the sameSpirit ; to another the gifts of healingby the sameSpirit;10Toanother the working of miracles ; to anotherprophecy ; to anotherdiscerning of spirits ; to another divers kinds of tongues ; to another the interpretation of tongues:11Butalltheseworketh that oneand the selfsameSpirit,dividing to every manseverallyas he will .
12Foras the bodyisone,andhathmanymembers,andall the members of that onebody,beingmany,areonebody:soalso is Christ.13ForbyoneSpiritareweallbaptizedintoonebody,whether we be JewsorGentiles,cwhether 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 bestowd 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 benoschismein 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,diversitiesf 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.
