Wycliffe (WYC) New International Version (NIV)
1 But of spiritual things, brethren, I will not that ye not know [I will not you to unknow]. 1 Now about spiritual gifts, brothers, I do not want you to be ignorant.
2 For ye know, that when ye were heathen men, how ye were led going to dumb maumets. [Soothly ye know, for when ye were heathen men, as ye were led going to dumb simulacra.] 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 in the Spirit of God, saith parting from Jesus; and no man may say the Lord Jesus [is], but in the Holy Ghost. 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 And diverse graces there be, but it is all one Spirit [but the same Spirit is]; 4 There are different kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit.
5 and diverse services there be, but it is all one Lord; [and partings of servings be, but the same Lord is;] 5 There are different kinds of service, but the same Lord.
6 and diverse workings there be, but it is all one God [and partings of workings be, but the same God is], that worketh all things in all things. 6 There are different kinds of working, but the same God works all of them in all men.
7 And to each man the showing of Spirit is given to profit. 7 Now to each one the manifestation of the Spirit is given for the common good.
8 And the word of wisdom is given to one by Spirit [To another forsooth by Spirit the word of wisdom is given]; to another the word of knowing, by 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 faith to another, in the same Spirit; to another, grace of healings [+grace of healths/grace of heals], in one Spirit; 9 to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healing by that one Spirit,
10 to another, the working of works of power; to another, prophecy; to another, very knowing of spirits; to another, kinds of languages; to another, expounding of words. [to another, the working of virtues; to another, prophecy; to another, discretion, or very knowing, of spirits; to another, kinds of tongues, or languages; to another, interpreting, or expounding, of words.] 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 And one and the same Spirit worketh all these things [Forsooth all these things one and the same Spirit worketh], parting to each by themselves as he will. 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 there is one body, and hath many members, and all the members of the body when those be many [when they be many], be one body, so also 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 in one Spirit all we be baptized into one body, either Jews, either heathen, either servants, either free; and all we be filled with drink in one Spirit. [And soothly in one Spirit all we be baptized into one body, either Jews, or heathen, or servants, or free; and all we have drunk in 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 shall say, For I am not the hand, I am not of the body; not therefore it is not of the body [not therefore is it not 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 saith [And if the ear shall say], For I am not the eye, I am not of the body; not therefore it is not of the body [not therefore is it not 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 all the body is the eye [If all the body were the eye], where is [the] hearing? and if all the body is hearing, where is [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 hath set members, and each of them in the body, as he would. 18 But in fact God has arranged the parts in the body, every one of them, just as he wanted them to be.
19 And if all were one member, where were the body? 19 If they were all one part, where would the body be?
20 But now there be many members, but one body. 20 As it is, there are many parts, but one body.
21 And the eye may not say to the hand [Forsooth the eye shall not be able to say to the hand], I have no need to thy works; or again the head to the feet, Ye be not necessary to me. 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 more those that be seen to be the lower members of the body [But much more those that be seen to be more sick, or lower, members of the body], be more needful; 22 On the contrary, those parts of the body that seem to be weaker are indispensable,
23 and those that we guess to be the unworthier members of the body, to them we give more honour; and those members that be unseemly, have more seemliness. [+and to them that we guess to be unnobler members of the body, we give more honour about; and those members that be unhonest, have more honesty.] 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 For our seemly members have need of none; but God tempered the body, giving more honour to it, to whom it failed, [Forsooth our honest members of none have need; but God tempered the body, giving more worship to it, to whom it failed,] 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 debate be not in the body, but that the members be busy into the same thing each for other [but that the members be busy into the same thing for each other]. 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 suffereth any thing [And if one member suffer any thing], all members suffer therewith; either if one member joyeth [either if one member glorieth], all members joy together. 26 If one part suffers, every part suffers with it; if one part is honored, every part rejoices with it.
27 And ye be the body of Christ, and members of member. [Forsooth ye be the body of Christ, and members of members.] 27 Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it.
28 But God set some men in the church, first apostles, the second time prophets [And soothly God put some in the church, first apostles, the second prophets], the third teachers, afterward works of power, afterward graces of healings, helpings, governings, kinds of languages, interpretations of words. 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 Whether all [be] apostles? whether all [be] prophets? Whether all teachers? whether all works of power? 29 Are all apostles? Are all prophets? Are all teachers? Do all work miracles?
30 whether all have grace of healings? whether all speak with languages? whether all expound [whether all interpret, or expound]? 30 Do all have gifts of healing? Do all speak in tongues ? Do all interpret?
31 But follow ye the better ghostly gifts. And yet I show to you a more excellent way. 31 But eagerly desire the greater gifts. And now I will show you the most excellent way.
