1 Corinthians 12 VULA/NIV - Online Parallel Bible

The Latin Vulgate w/ Apocrypha (VULA) New International Version (NIV)
1 de spiritalibus autem nolo vos ignorare fratres 1 Now about spiritual gifts, brothers, I do not want you to be ignorant.
2 scitis quoniam cum gentes essetis ad simulacra muta prout ducebamini euntes 2 You know that when you were pagans, somehow or other you were influenced and led astray to mute idols.
3 ideo notum vobis facio quod nemo in Spiritu Dei loquens dicit anathema Iesu et nemo potest dicere Dominus Iesus nisi in Spiritu Sancto 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 divisiones vero gratiarum sunt idem autem Spiritus 4 There are different kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit.
5 et divisiones ministrationum sunt idem autem Dominus 5 There are different kinds of service, but the same Lord.
6 et divisiones operationum sunt idem vero Deus qui operatur omnia in omnibus 6 There are different kinds of working, but the same God works all of them in all men.
7 unicuique autem datur manifestatio Spiritus ad utilitatem 7 Now to each one the manifestation of the Spirit is given for the common good.
8 alii quidem per Spiritum datur sermo sapientiae alii autem sermo scientiae secundum eundem Spiritum 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 alteri fides in eodem Spiritu alii gratia sanitatum in uno Spiritu 9 to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healing by that one Spirit,
10 alii operatio virtutum alii prophetatio alii discretio spirituum alii genera linguarum alii interpretatio sermonum 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 haec autem omnia operatur unus atque idem Spiritus dividens singulis prout vult 11 All these are the work of one and the same Spirit, and he gives them to each one, just as he determines.
12 sicut enim corpus unum est et membra habet multa omnia autem membra corporis cum sint multa unum corpus sunt ita et Christus 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 etenim in uno Spiritu omnes nos in unum corpus baptizati sumus sive Iudaei sive gentiles sive servi sive liberi et omnes unum Spiritum potati sumus 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 nam et corpus non est unum membrum sed multa 14 Now the body is not made up of one part but of many.
15 si dixerit pes quoniam non sum manus non sum de corpore non ideo non est de corpore 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 et si dixerit auris quia non sum oculus non sum de corpore non ideo non est de corpore 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 si totum corpus oculus ubi auditus si totum auditus ubi odoratus 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 nunc autem posuit Deus membra unumquodque eorum in corpore sicut voluit 18 But in fact God has arranged the parts in the body, every one of them, just as he wanted them to be.
19 quod si essent omnia unum membrum ubi corpus 19 If they were all one part, where would the body be?
20 nunc autem multa quidem membra unum autem corpus 20 As it is, there are many parts, but one body.
21 non potest dicere oculus manui opera tua non indigeo aut iterum caput pedibus non estis mihi necessarii 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 sed multo magis quae videntur membra corporis infirmiora esse necessariora sunt 22 On the contrary, those parts of the body that seem to be weaker are indispensable,
23 et quae putamus ignobiliora membra esse corporis his honorem abundantiorem circumdamus et quae inhonesta sunt nostra abundantiorem honestatem habent 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 honesta autem nostra nullius egent sed Deus temperavit corpus ei cui deerat abundantiorem tribuendo honorem 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 ut non sit scisma in corpore sed id ipsum pro invicem sollicita sint membra 25 so that there should be no division in the body, but that its parts should have equal concern for each other.
26 et si quid patitur unum membrum conpatiuntur omnia membra sive gloriatur unum membrum congaudent omnia membra 26 If one part suffers, every part suffers with it; if one part is honored, every part rejoices with it.
27 vos autem estis corpus Christi et membra de membro 27 Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it.
28 et quosdam quidem posuit Deus in ecclesia primum apostolos secundo prophetas tertio doctores deinde virtutes exin gratias curationum opitulationes gubernationes genera linguarum 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 numquid omnes apostoli numquid omnes prophetae numquid omnes doctores 29 Are all apostles? Are all prophets? Are all teachers? Do all work miracles?
30 numquid omnes virtutes numquid omnes gratiam habent curationum numquid omnes linguis loquuntur numquid omnes interpretantur 30 Do all have gifts of healing? Do all speak in tongues ? Do all interpret?
31 aemulamini autem charismata maiora et adhuc excellentiorem viam vobis demonstro 31 But eagerly desire the greater gifts. And now I will show you the most excellent way.
