New King James Version (NKJV) New International Version (NIV)
10 Now I plead with you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment. 10 I appeal to you, brothers, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree with one another so that there may be no divisions among you and that you may be perfectly united in mind and thought.
11 For it has been declared to me concerning you, my brethren, by those of Chloe's household, that there are contentions among you. 11 My brothers, some from Chloe's household have informed me that there are quarrels among you.
12 Now I say this, that each of you says, "I am of Paul," or "I am of Apollos," or "I am of Cephas," or "I am of Christ." 12 What I mean is this: One of you says, "I follow Paul"; another, "I follow Apollos"; another, "I follow Cephas "; still another, "I follow Christ."
13 Is Christ divided? Was Paul crucified for you? Or were you baptized in the name of Paul? 13 Is Christ divided? Was Paul crucified for you? Were you baptized into the name of Paul?
14 I thank God that I baptized none of you except Crispus and Gaius, 14 I am thankful that I did not baptize any of you except Crispus and Gaius,
15 lest anyone should say that I had baptized in my own name. 15 so no one can say that you were baptized into my name.
16 Yes, I also baptized the household of Stephanas. Besides, I do not know whether I baptized any other. 16 (Yes, I also baptized the household of Stephanas; beyond that, I don't remember if I baptized anyone else.)
17 For Christ did not send me to baptize, but to preach the gospel, not with wisdom of words, lest the cross of Christ should be made of no effect. 17 For Christ did not send me to baptize, but to preach the gospel--not with words of human wisdom, lest the cross of Christ be emptied of its power.
