1AndI,brethren,couldnotspeak unto youas unto spiritual,butas unto carnal, even as unto babesinChrist.2
I have fedyou with milk,andnot with meat:forhitherto ye werenotable to bear it, neitheryetnow are ye able .
3For ye areyetcarnal:forwhereas there is amongyouenvying,andstrife,anddivisions,a are yenotcarnal,andwalkasmen?4Forwhileonesaith , Iam of Paul;andanother,I am of Apollos;are ye notcarnal?5WhothenisPaul,andwho is Apollos,butministersbywhom ye believed , evenas the Lordgave to every man?6I have planted , Apolloswatered ; butGod gave the increase .
7So then neitheris he that planteth any thing,neither he that watereth ; butGod that giveth the increase .
8Now he that plantethand he that waterethareone:and every man shall receive his ownrewardaccording to his ownlabour.9For we are labourers together with God: ye areGod'shusbandry,b ye are God'sbuilding.10According to the grace of Godwhich is given unto me,as a wisemasterbuilder, I have laid the foundation,andanotherbuildeth thereon. Butlet every man take heedhow he buildeth thereupon.
11Forotherfoundationcan no manlaythan that is laid , whichisJesusChrist.12Now if any manbuilduponthisfoundationgold,silver,preciousstones,wood,hay,stubble;13
Every man'swork shall be mademanifest:for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealedbyfire;and the fire shall try every man'swork of what sort it is .
If any man'sworkabidewhich he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward.15
If any man'swork shall be burned , he shall suffer loss : but he himself shall be saved ; yetsoasbyfire.16
Know yenotthat ye are the temple of God,and that the Spirit of Goddwellethinyou?17
If any mandefilec the temple of God,himshallGoddestroy ; for the temple of Godisholy,which temple yeare .
18Let no mandeceivehimself. If any manamongyouseemeth to bewiseinthisworld, let him become a fool,that he may bewise.19For the wisdom of thisworldisfoolishnesswithGod.For it is written , He taketh the wisein their owncraftiness.20Andagain, The Lordknoweth the thoughts of the wise,that they arevain.21Thereforelet no mangloryinmen.For all thingsareyours;22WhetherPaul,orApollos,orCephas,or the world,orlife,ordeath,or things present , or things to come ; allareyours;23Andye are Christ's;andChrist is God's.
