16Otherwiseif you blessain the spirit only, how will the one who fills the place of the bungiftedsay1the "Amen " at your 2giving of thanks, since he does not knowwhat you are saying?
For you are givingthankswellenough, but the otherperson is not 3edified.
I thankGod, I speak in tonguesmore than you all;
19however, in the church I desire to speakfivewords with my mindso that I may instructothersalso, ratherthantenthousandwords in a tongue.
204Brethren, 5do not be children in your thinking; yet in evil6be infants, but in your thinking be mature.
In 7the Law it is written, "8BY MEN OF STRANGETONGUES AND BY THE LIPS OF STRANGERS I WILL SPEAK TO THISPEOPLE, AND EVENSO THEY WILL NOT LISTEN TO ME," says the Lord.
22Sothentongues are for a sign, not to those who believe but to unbelievers; but 9prophecy is for a sign, not to unbelievers but to those who believe.
23Thereforeif the wholechurchassemblestogether and allspeak in tongues, and cungiftedmenorunbelieversenter, will they not say that 10you are mad?
But ifall11prophesy, and an unbelieveror an dungiftedmanenters, he is 12convicted by all, he is called to account by all;
2513the secrets of his heart are disclosed; and so he will 14fall on his face and worshipGod, 15declaring that God is certainlyamong you.
2616What is the outcome then, 17brethren? When you assemble, 18eachonehas a 19psalm, has a 20teaching, has a 21revelation, has a 22tongue, has an 23interpretation. Let 24allthings be done for edification.
