1Paul, 1called as an apostle of JesusChristaby 2the will of God, and 3Sosthenes our 4brother,
To 5the church of God which is at 6Corinth, to those who have been sanctified in ChristJesus, bsaints7by calling, with all who in everyplace8call on the name of our LordJesusChrist, their Lord and ours :
39Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the LordJesusChrist.
410I thankcmy Godalwaysconcerning you for the grace of God which was given you in ChristJesus,
that in everything you were 11enriched in Him, in all12speech and 13allknowledge,
6even as 14the testimony concerning Christ was confirmeddin you,
7so that you are not lacking in anygift, 15awaitingeagerly the revelation of our LordJesusChrist,
816who will alsoconfirm you to the end, blameless in 17the day of our LordJesusChrist.
918God is faithful, throughwhom you were 19called into 20fellowship with His Son, JesusChrist our Lord.
10Now21I exhort you, 22brethren, by the name of our LordJesusChrist, that you alleagree and that there be nof23divisionsamong you, but that you be gmadecomplete in 24the samemind and in the samejudgment.
For I have been informedconcerning you, my brethren, by Chloe's people, that there are quarrelsamong you.
12Now I meanthis, that 25eachone of you is saying, "I am of Paul," and "I of 26Apollos," and "I of 27Cephas," and "I of Christ."
13hHas Christ been divided ? Paul was not crucified for you, was he? Or were you 28baptizediin the name of Paul ?
14jI thankGod that I 29baptizednone of you except30Crispus and 31Gaius,
15so that noone would say you were baptizedkin my name.
16Now I did baptizealso the 32household of Stephanas ; beyond that, I do not knowwhether I baptizedanyother.
1733For Christ did not send me to baptize, but to preach the gospel, 34not in lcleverness of speech, so that the cross of Christ would not be madevoid.
