Prophecy a Superior Gift

1 1Pursue love, yet 2desire earnestly 3spiritual gifts, but especially that you may 4prophesy. 2 For one who 5speaks in a tongue does not speak to men but to God; for no one aunderstands, but bin his spirit he speaks 6mysteries. 3 But one who prophesies speaks to men for 7edification and 8exhortation and consolation. 4 One who 9speaks in a tongue 10edifies himself; but one who 11prophesies 12edifies the church. 5 Now I wish that you all 13spoke in tongues, but 14even more that you would prophesy; and greater is one who prophesies than one who 15speaks in tongues, unless he interprets, so that the church may receive 16edifying. 6 But now, brethren, if I come to you speaking in tongues, what will I profit you unless I speak to you either by way of 17revelation or of 18knowledge or of 19prophecy or of 20teaching?
