WEB 1 Paul, called to be an apostle of Jesus Christ through the will of God, and our brother Sosthenes, NIV 1 Paul, called to be an apostle of Christ Jesus by the will of God, and our brother Sosthenes, WEB 2 to the assembly of God which is at Corinth; those who are sanctified in Christ Jesus, called to be saints, with all who call on the name of our Lord Jesus Christ in every place, both theirs and ours: NIV 2 To the church of God in Corinth, to those sanctified in Christ Jesus and called to be holy, together with all those everywhere who call on the name of our Lord Jesus Christ--their Lord and ours: WEB 3 Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. NIV 3 Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. WEB 4 I always thank my God concerning you, for the grace of God which was given you in Christ Jesus; NIV 4 I always thank God for you because of his grace given you in Christ Jesus. WEB 5 that in everything you were enriched in him, in all speech and all knowledge; NIV 5 For in him you have been enriched in every way--in all your speaking and in all your knowledge-- WEB 6 even as the testimony of Christ was confirmed in you: NIV 6 because our testimony about Christ was confirmed in you. WEB 7 so that you come behind in no gift; waiting for the revelation of our Lord Jesus Christ; NIV 7 Therefore you do not lack any spiritual gift as you eagerly wait for our Lord Jesus Christ to be revealed. WEB 8 who will also confirm you until the end, blameless in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ. NIV 8 He will keep you strong to the end, so that you will be blameless on the day of our Lord Jesus Christ. WEB 9 God is faithful, through whom you were called into the fellowship of his Son, Jesus Christ, our Lord. NIV 9 God, who has called you into fellowship with his Son Jesus Christ our Lord, is faithful. WEB 10 Now I beg you, brothers, through 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 perfected together in the same mind and in the same judgment. NIV 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. WEB 11 For it has been reported to me concerning you, my brothers, by those who are from Chloe's household, that there are contentions among you. NIV 11 My brothers, some from Chloe's household have informed me that there are quarrels among you. WEB 12 Now I mean this, that each one of you says, "I follow Paul," "I follow Apollos," "I follow Cephas," and, "I follow Christ." NIV 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." WEB 13 Is Christ divided? Was Paul crucified for you? Or were you baptized into the name of Paul? NIV 13 Is Christ divided? Was Paul crucified for you? Were you baptized into the name of Paul? WEB 14 I thank God that I baptized none of you, except Crispus and Gaius, NIV 14 I am thankful that I did not baptize any of you except Crispus and Gaius, WEB 15 so that no one should say that I had baptized you into my own name.

NIV 16 (Yes, I also baptized the household of Stephanas; beyond that, I don't remember if I baptized anyone else.) WEB 17 For Christ sent me not to baptize, but to preach the gospel -- not in wisdom of words, so that the cross of Christ wouldn't be made void. NIV 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. WEB 18 For the word of the cross is foolishness to those who are dying, but to us who are saved it is the power of God. NIV 18 For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. WEB 19 For it is written, "I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, I will bring the discernment of the discerning to nothing." NIV 19 For it is written: "I will destroy the wisdom of the wise; the intelligence of the intelligent I will frustrate." WEB 20 Where is the wise? Where is the scribe? Where is the lawyer of this world? Hasn't God made foolish the wisdom of this world? NIV 20 Where is the wise man? Where is the scholar? Where is the philosopher of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world? WEB 21 For seeing that in the wisdom of God, the world through its wisdom didn't know God, it was God's good pleasure through the foolishness of the preaching to save those who believe. NIV 21 For since in the wisdom of God the world through its wisdom did not know him, God was pleased through the foolishness of what was preached to save those who believe. WEB 22 For Jews ask for signs, Greeks seek after wisdom, NIV 22 Jews demand miraculous signs and Greeks look for wisdom, WEB 23 but we preach Christ crucified; a stumbling block to Jews, and foolishness to Greeks, NIV 23 but we preach Christ crucified: a stumbling block to Jews and foolishness to Gentiles, WEB 24 but to those who are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ is the power of God and the wisdom of God. NIV 24 but to those whom God has called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God. WEB 25 Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men. NIV 25 For the foolishness of God is wiser than man's wisdom, and the weakness of God is stronger than man's strength. WEB 26 For you see your calling, brothers, that not many are wise according to the flesh, not many mighty, and not many noble; NIV 26 Brothers, think of what you were when you were called. Not many of you were wise by human standards; not many were influential; not many were of noble birth. WEB 27 but God chose the foolish things of the world that he might put to shame those who are wise. God chose the weak things of the world, that he might put to shame the things that are strong; NIV 27 But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong. WEB 28 and God chose the lowly things of the world, and the things that are despised, and the things that are not, that he might bring to nothing the things that are: NIV 28 He chose the lowly things of this world and the despised things--and the things that are not--to nullify the things that are, WEB 29 that no flesh should boast before God. NIV 29 so that no one may boast before him. WEB 30 But of him, you are in Christ Jesus, who was made to us wisdom from God, and righteousness and sanctification, and redemption: NIV 30 It is because of him that you are in Christ Jesus, who has become for us wisdom from God--that is, our righteousness, holiness and redemption. WEB 31 that, according as it is written, "He who boasts, let him boast in the Lord." NIV 31 Therefore, as it is written: "Let him who boasts boast in the Lord."
