Douay-Rheims (RHE) New International Version (NIV)
1 And I, brethren, could not speak to you as unto spiritual, but as unto carnal. As unto little ones in Christ. 1 Brothers, I could not address you as spiritual but as worldly--mere infants in Christ.
2 I gave you milk to drink, not meat: for you were not able as yet. But neither indeed are you now able: for you are yet carnal. 2 I gave you milk, not solid food, for you were not yet ready for it. Indeed, you are still not ready.
3 For, whereas there is among you envying and contention, are you not carnal and walk you not according to man? 3 You are still worldly. For since there is jealousy and quarreling among you, are you not worldly? Are you not acting like mere men?
4 For while one saith: I indeed am of Paul: and another: I am of Apollo: are you not men? What then is Apollo and what is Paul? 4 For when one says, "I follow Paul," and another, "I follow Apollos," are you not mere men?
5 The ministers of him whom you have believed: and to every one as the Lord hath given. 5 What, after all, is Apollos? And what is Paul? Only servants, through whom you came to believe--as the Lord has assigned to each his task.
6 I have planted, Apollo watered: but God gave the increase. 6 I planted the seed, Apollos watered it, but God made it grow.
7 Therefore, neither he that planteth is any thing, nor he that watereth: but God that giveth the increase. 7 So neither he who plants nor he who waters is anything, but only God, who makes things grow.
8 Now he that planteth and he that watereth, are one. And every man shall receive his own reward, according to his own labour. 8 The man who plants and the man who waters have one purpose, and each will be rewarded according to his own labor.
9 For we are God’s coadjutors. You are God’s husbandry: you are God’s building. 9 For we are God's fellow workers; you are God's field, God's building.
10 According to the grace of God that is given to me, as a wise architect, I have laid the foundation: and another buildeth thereon. But let every man take heed how he buildeth thereupon. 10 By the grace God has given me, I laid a foundation as an expert builder, and someone else is building on it. But each one should be careful how he builds.
11 For other foundation no man can lay, but that which is laid: which is Christ Jesus. 11 For no one can lay any foundation other than the one already laid, which is Jesus Christ.
12 Now, if any man build upon this foundation, gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble: 12 If any man builds on this foundation using gold, silver, costly stones, wood, hay or straw,
13 Every man’s work shall be manifest. For the day of the Lord shall declare it, because it shall be revealed in fire. And the fire shall try every man’s work, of what sort it is. 13 his work will be shown for what it is, because the Day will bring it to light. It will be revealed with fire, and the fire will test the quality of each man's work.
14 If any man’s work abide, which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward. 14 If what he has built survives, he will receive his reward.
15 If any mans work burn, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved, yet so as by fire. 15 If it is burned up, he will suffer loss; he himself will be saved, but only as one escaping through the flames.
16 Know you not that you are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? 16 Don't you know that you yourselves are God's temple and that God's Spirit lives in you?
17 But if any man violate the temple of God, him shall God destroy. For the temple of God is holy, which you are. 17 If anyone destroys God's temple, God will destroy him; for God's temple is sacred, and you are that temple.
18 Let no man deceive himself. If any man among you seem to be wise in this world, let him become a fool, that he may be wise. 18 Do not deceive yourselves. If any one of you thinks he is wise by the standards of this age, he should become a "fool" so that he may become wise.
19 For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written: I will catch the wise in their own craftiness. 19 For the wisdom of this world is foolishness in God's sight. As it is written: "He catches the wise in their craftiness";
20 And again: The Lord knoweth the thoughts of the wise, that they are vain. 20 and again, "The Lord knows that the thoughts of the wise are futile."
21 Let no man therefore glory in men. 21 So then, no more boasting about men! All things are yours,
22 For all things are yours, whether it be Paul or Apollo or Cephas, or the world, or life, or death, or things present, or things to come. For all are yours. 22 whether Paul or Apollos or Cephas or the world or life or death or the present or the future--all are yours,
23 And you are Christ’s. And Christ is God’s. 23 and you are of Christ, and Christ is of God.
