In 1the Law it is written, "2BY 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 3prophecy is for a sign, not to unbelievers but to those who believe.
23Thereforeif the wholechurchassemblestogether and allspeak in tongues, and aungiftedmenorunbelieversenter, will they not say that 4you are mad?
But ifall5prophesy, and an unbelieveror an bungiftedmanenters, he is 6convicted by all, he is called to account by all;
257the secrets of his heart are disclosed; and so he will 8fall on his face and worshipGod, 9declaring that God is certainlyamong you.
2610What is the outcome then, 11brethren? When you assemble, 12eachonehas a 13psalm, has a 14teaching, has a 15revelation, has a 16tongue, has an 17interpretation. Let 18allthings be done for edification.
27Ifanyonespeaks in a 19tongue, it should be by twoor at the mostthree, and each in turn, and one must 20interpret;
but if there is nointerpreter, he must keepsilent in the church; and let him speak to himself and to God.
Let twoorthree21prophetsspeak, and let the others22passjudgment.
But if a revelation is made to another who is seated, the first one must keepsilent.
For you canallprophesyone by one , so that all may learn and all may be exhorted;
