New King James Version (NKJV) New International Version (NIV)
1 And I, brethren, could not speak to you as to spiritual people but as to carnal, as to babes in Christ. 1 Brothers, I could not address you as spiritual but as worldly--mere infants in Christ.
2 I fed you with milk and not with solid food; for until now you were not able to receive it, and even now you are still not able; 2 I gave you milk, not solid food, for you were not yet ready for it. Indeed, you are still not ready.
3 for you are still carnal. For where there are envy, strife, and divisions among you, are you not carnal and behaving like mere men? 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 when one says, "I am of Paul," and another, "I am of Apollos," are you not carnal? 4 For when one says, "I follow Paul," and another, "I follow Apollos," are you not mere men?
