The Darby Translation (DBY) New International Version (NIV)
1 But concerning spiritual [manifestations], brethren, I do not wish you to be ignorant. 1 Now about spiritual gifts, brothers, I do not want you to be ignorant.
2 Ye know that when ye were [of the] nations [ye were] led away to dumb idols, in whatever way ye might be led. 2 You know that when you were pagans, somehow or other you were influenced and led astray to mute idols.
3 I give you therefore to know, that no one, speaking in [the power of the] Spirit of God, says, Curse [on] Jesus; and no one can say, Lord Jesus, unless in [the power of the] Holy Spirit. 3 Therefore I tell you that no one who is speaking by the Spirit of God says, "Jesus be cursed," and no one can say, "Jesus is Lord," except by the Holy Spirit.
4 But there are distinctions of gifts, but the same Spirit; 4 There are different kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit.
5 and there are distinctions of services, and the same Lord; 5 There are different kinds of service, but the same Lord.
6 and there are distinctions of operations, but the same God who operates all things in all. 6 There are different kinds of working, but the same God works all of them in all men.
7 But to each the manifestation of the Spirit is given for profit. 7 Now to each one the manifestation of the Spirit is given for the common good.
8 For to one, by the Spirit, is given [the] word of wisdom; and to another [the] word of knowledge, according to the same Spirit; 8 To one there is given through the Spirit the message of wisdom, to another the message of knowledge by means of the same Spirit,
9 and to a different one faith, in [the power of] the same Spirit; and to another gifts of healing in [the power of] the same Spirit; 9 to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healing by that one Spirit,
10 and to another operations of miracles; and to another prophecy; and to another discerning of spirits; and to a different one kinds of tongues; and to another interpretation of tongues. 10 to another miraculous powers, to another prophecy, to another distinguishing between spirits, to another speaking in different kinds of tongues, and to still another the interpretation of tongues.
11 But all these things operates the one and the same Spirit, dividing to each in particular according as he pleases. 11 All these are the work of one and the same Spirit, and he gives them to each one, just as he determines.
12 For even as the body is one and has many members, but all the members of the body, being many, are one body, so also [is] the Christ. 12 The body is a unit, though it is made up of many parts; and though all its parts are many, they form one body. So it is with Christ.
13 For also in [the power of] one Spirit *we* have all been baptised into one body, whether Jews or Greeks, whether bondmen or free, and have all been given to drink of one Spirit. 13 For we were all baptized by one Spirit into one body--whether Jews or Greeks, slave or free--and we were all given the one Spirit to drink.
14 For also the body is not one member but many. 14 Now the body is not made up of one part but of many.
15 If the foot say, Because I am not a hand I am not of the body, is it on account of this not indeed of the body? 15 If the foot should say, "Because I am not a hand, I do not belong to the body," it would not for that reason cease to be part of the body.
16 And if the ear say, Because I am not an eye I am not of the body, is it on account of this not indeed of the body? 16 And if the ear should say, "Because I am not an eye, I do not belong to the body," it would not for that reason cease to be part of the body.
17 If the whole body [were] an eye, where the hearing? if all hearing, where the smelling? 17 If the whole body were an eye, where would the sense of hearing be? If the whole body were an ear, where would the sense of smell be?
18 But now God has set the members, each one of them in the body, according as it has pleased [him]. 18 But in fact God has arranged the parts in the body, every one of them, just as he wanted them to be.
19 But if all were one member, where the body? 19 If they were all one part, where would the body be?
20 But now the members [are] many, and the body one. 20 As it is, there are many parts, but one body.
21 The eye cannot say to the hand, I have not need of thee; or again, the head to the feet, I have not need of you. 21 The eye cannot say to the hand, "I don't need you!" And the head cannot say to the feet, "I don't need you!"
22 But much rather, the members of the body which seem to be weaker are necessary; 22 On the contrary, those parts of the body that seem to be weaker are indispensable,
23 and those [parts] of the body which we esteem to be the more void of honour, these we clothe with more abundant honour; and our uncomely [parts] have more abundant comeliness; 23 and the parts that we think are less honorable we treat with special honor. And the parts that are unpresentable are treated with special modesty,
24 but our comely [parts] have not need. But God has tempered the body together, having given more abundant honour to [the part] that lacked; 24 while our presentable parts need no special treatment. But God has combined the members of the body and has given greater honor to the parts that lacked it,
25 that there might be no division in the body, but that the members might have the same concern one for another. 25 so that there should be no division in the body, but that its parts should have equal concern for each other.
26 And if one member suffer, all the members suffer with [it]; and if one member be glorified, all the members rejoice with [it]. 26 If one part suffers, every part suffers with it; if one part is honored, every part rejoices with it.
27 Now *ye* are Christ's body, and members in particular. 27 Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it.
28 And God has set certain in the assembly: first, apostles; secondly, prophets; thirdly, teachers; then miraculous powers; then gifts of healings; helps; governments; kinds of tongues. 28 And in the church God has appointed first of all apostles, second prophets, third teachers, then workers of miracles, also those having gifts of healing, those able to help others, those with gifts of administration, and those speaking in different kinds of tongues.
29 [Are] all apostles? [are] all prophets? [are] all teachers? [are] all [in possession of] miraculous powers? 29 Are all apostles? Are all prophets? Are all teachers? Do all work miracles?
30 have all gifts of healings? do all speak with tongues? do all interpret? 30 Do all have gifts of healing? Do all speak in tongues ? Do all interpret?
31 But desire earnestly the greater gifts, and yet shew I unto you a way of more surpassing excellence. 31 But eagerly desire the greater gifts. And now I will show you the most excellent way.
