26 What is the outcome then, brethren ? When you assemble, each one has a psalm, has a teaching, has a revelation, has a tongue, has an interpretation. Let all things be done for edification. 26 What then shall we say, brothers? When you come together, everyone has a hymn, or a word of instruction, a revelation, a tongue or an interpretation. All of these must be done for the strengthening of the church.
27 If anyone speaks in a tongue, it should be by two or at the most three, and each in turn, and one must interpret ; 27 If anyone speaks in a tongue, two--or at the most three--should speak, one at a time, and someone must interpret.
28 but if there is no interpreter, he must keep silent in the church ; and let him speak to himself and to God. 28 If there is no interpreter, the speaker should keep quiet in the church and speak to himself and God.
29 Let two or three prophets speak, and let the others pass judgment. 29 Two or three prophets should speak, and the others should weigh carefully what is said.
30 But if a revelation is made to another who is seated, the first one must keep silent. 30 And if a revelation comes to someone who is sitting down, the first speaker should stop.
31 For you can all prophesy one by one , so that all may learn and all may be exhorted ; 31 For you can all prophesy in turn so that everyone may be instructed and encouraged.
32 and the spirits of prophets are subject to prophets ; 32 The spirits of prophets are subject to the control of prophets.
33 for God is not a God of confusion but of peace, as in all the churches of the saints. 33 For God is not a God of disorder but of peace. As in all the congregations of the saints,
34 The women are to keep silent in the churches ; for they are not permitted to speak, but are to subject themselves, just as the Law also says. 34 women should remain silent in the churches. They are not allowed to speak, but must be in submission, as the Law says.
35 If they desire to learn anything, let them ask their own husbands at home ; for it is improper for a woman to speak in church. 35 If they want to inquire about something, they should ask their own husbands at home; for it is disgraceful for a woman to speak in the church.
36 Was it from you that the word of God first went forth ? Or has it come to you only ? 36 Did the word of God originate with you? Or are you the only people it has reached?
37 If anyone thinks he is a prophet or spiritual, let him recognize that the things which I write to you are the Lord's commandment. 37 If anybody thinks he is a prophet or spiritually gifted, let him acknowledge that what I am writing to you is the Lord's command.
38 But if anyone does not recognize this, he is not recognized. 38 If he ignores this, he himself will be ignored.
39 Therefore, my brethren, desire earnestly to prophesy, and do not forbid to speak in tongues. 39 Therefore, my brothers, be eager to prophesy, and do not forbid speaking in tongues.
40 But all things must be done properly and in an orderly manner. 40 But everything should be done in a fitting and orderly way.
