Hebrew Names Version (HNV) New International Version (NIV)
1 Now concerning spiritual gifts, brothers, I don't want you to be ignorant. 1 Now about spiritual gifts, brothers, I do not want you to be ignorant.
2 You know that when you were heathen, you were led away to those mute idols, however you might be led. 2 You know that when you were pagans, somehow or other you were influenced and led astray to mute idols.
3 Therefore I make known to you that no man speaking by God's Spirit says, "Yeshua is accursed." No one can say, "Yeshua is Lord," but by the Ruach HaKodesh. 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 Now there are various kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit. 4 There are different kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit.
5 There are various kinds of service, and the same Lord. 5 There are different kinds of service, but the same Lord.
6 There are various kinds of workings, but the same God, who works 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 one is given the manifestation of the Spirit for the profit of all. 7 Now to each one the manifestation of the Spirit is given for the common good.
8 For to one is given through the Spirit 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 to another faith, by the same Spirit; and to another gifts of healings, by the same Spirit; 9 to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healing by that one Spirit,
10 and to another workings of miracles; and to another prophecy; and to another discerning of spirits; to another different kinds of languages; and to another the interpretation of languages. 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 the one and the same Spirit works all of these, distributing to each one separately as he desires. 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 as the body is one, and has many members, and all the members of the body, being many, are one body; so also is Messiah. 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 in one Spirit we were all immersed into one body, whether Yehudim or Yevanim, whether bond or free; and were all made to drink into 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 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 would say, "Because I'm not the hand, I'm not part of the body," it is not therefore not part 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 If the ear would say, "Because I'm not the eye, I'm not part of the body," it's not therefore not part 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 would the hearing be? If the whole were hearing, where would the smelling be? 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, just as he desired. 18 But in fact God has arranged the parts in the body, every one of them, just as he wanted them to be.
19 If they were all one member, where would the body be? 19 If they were all one part, where would the body be?
20 But now they are many members, but one body. 20 As it is, there are many parts, but one body.
21 The eye can't tell the hand, "I have no need for you," or again the head to the feet, "I have no need for 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 No, much rather, those 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 Those parts of the body which we think to be less honorable, on those we bestow more abundant honor; and our unpresentable parts have more abundant propriety; 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 whereas our presentable parts have no such need. But God composed the body together, giving more abundant honor to the inferior part, 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 should be no division in the body, but that the members should have the same care for one another. 25 so that there should be no division in the body, but that its parts should have equal concern for each other.
26 When one member suffers, all the members suffer with it. Or when one member is honored, 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 you are the body of Messiah, and members individually. 27 Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it.
28 God has set some in the assembly, first apostles, secondly prophets, thirdly teachers, then miracle workers, then gifts of healings, helps, governments, and various kinds of languages. 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 miracle workers? 29 Are all apostles? Are all prophets? Are all teachers? Do all work miracles?
30 Do all have gifts of healings? Do all speak with various languages? Do all interpret? 30 Do all have gifts of healing? Do all speak in tongues ? Do all interpret?
31 But desire earnestly the best gifts. Moreover, I show a most excellent way to you. 31 But eagerly desire the greater gifts. And now I will show you the most excellent way.
