Young's Literal Translation (YLT) New International Version (NIV)
1 And concerning the spiritual things, 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 have known that ye were nations, unto the dumb idols -- as ye were led -- being carried away; 2 You know that when you were pagans, somehow or other you were influenced and led astray to mute idols.
3 wherefore, I give you to understand that no one, in the Spirit of God speaking, saith Jesus [is] anathema, and no one is able to say Jesus [is] Lord, except in 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 And there are diversities of gifts, and the same Spirit; 4 There are different kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit.
5 and there are diversities of ministrations, and the same Lord; 5 There are different kinds of service, but the same Lord.
6 and there are diversities of workings, and it is the same God -- who is working the all in all. 6 There are different kinds of working, but the same God works all of them in all men.
7 And to each hath been given the manifestation of the Spirit for profit; 7 Now to each one the manifestation of the Spirit is given for the common good.
8 for to one through the Spirit hath been given a word of wisdom, and to another a 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 another faith in the same Spirit, and to another gifts of healings in the same Spirit; 9 to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healing by that one Spirit,
10 and to another in-workings of mighty deeds; and to another prophecy; and to another discernings of spirits; and to another [divers] 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 and all these doth work the one and the same Spirit, dividing to each severally as he intendeth. 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 hath many members, and all the members of the one 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 one Spirit we all to one body were baptized, whether Jews or Greeks, whether servants or freemen, and all into one Spirit were made to drink, 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 may say, `Because I am not a hand, I am not of the body;' it is not, because of this, 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 may say, `Because I am not an eye, I am not of the body;' it is not, because of this, 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 the whole body [were] an eye, where the hearing? if the whole 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 and now, God did set the members each one of them in the body, according as He willed, 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 the body? 19 If they were all one part, where would the body be?
20 and now, indeed, [are] many members, and one body; 20 As it is, there are many parts, but one body.
21 and an eye is not able to say to the hand, `I have no need of thee;' nor again the head to the feet, `I have no 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 more the members of the body which seem to be more infirm are necessary, 22 On the contrary, those parts of the body that seem to be weaker are indispensable,
23 and those that we think to be less honourable of the body, around these we put more abundant honour, and our unseemly things have seemliness more abundant, 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 and our seemly things have no need; but God did temper the body together, to the lacking part having given more abundant honour, 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 may be no division in the body, but that the members may have the same anxiety 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 and whether one member doth suffer, suffer with [it] do all the members, or one member is glorified, rejoice with [it] do all the members; 26 If one part suffers, every part suffers with it; if one part is honored, every part rejoices with it.
27 and ye are the body of Christ, and members in particular. 27 Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it.
28 And some, indeed, did God set in the assembly, first apostles, secondly prophets, thirdly teachers, afterwards powers, afterwards gifts of healings, helpings, governings, divers 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 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 and desire earnestly the better gifts; and yet a far excelling way do I shew to you: 31 But eagerly desire the greater gifts. And now I will show you the most excellent way.
