1 Corinthians 14:10-20 (New American Standard)

View In My Bible
10 There are, perhaps, a great many kinds of alanguages in the world, and no kind is without meaning. 11 If then I do not know the meaning of the language, I will be to the one who speaks a b1barbarian, and the one who speaks will be a cbarbarian dto me. 12 So also you, since you are zealous of espiritual gifts, seek to abound for the 2edification of the church. 13 Therefore let one who speaks in a tongue pray that he may interpret. 14 For if I pray in a tongue, my spirit prays, but my mind is unfruitful. 15 3What is the outcome then ? I will pray with the spirit and I will pray with the mind also ; I will 4sing with the spirit and I will sing with the mind also. 16 Otherwise if you bless fin the spirit only, how will the one who fills the place of the gungifted say 5the "Amen " at your 6giving of thanks, since he does not know what you are saying ? 17 For you are giving thanks well enough, but the other person is not 7edified. 18 I thank God, I speak in tongues more than you all ; 19 however, in the church I desire to speak five words with my mind so that I may instruct others also, rather than ten thousand words in a tongue.
