1 Corinthians 12

NRS 1 Now concerning spiritual gifts, brothers and sisters, I do not want you to be uninformed. NIV 1 Now about spiritual gifts, brothers, I do not want you to be ignorant. NRS 2 You know that when you were pagans, you were enticed and led astray to idols that could not speak. NIV 2 You know that when you were pagans, somehow or other you were influenced and led astray to mute idols. NRS 3 Therefore I want you to understand that no one speaking by the Spirit of God ever says "Let Jesus be cursed!" and no one can say "Jesus is Lord" except by the Holy Spirit. NIV 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. NRS 4 Now there are varieties of gifts, but the same Spirit; NIV 4 There are different kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit. NRS 5 and there are varieties of services, but the same Lord; NIV 5 There are different kinds of service, but the same Lord. NRS 6 and there are varieties of activities, but it is the same God who activates all of them in everyone. NIV 6 There are different kinds of working, but the same God works all of them in all men. NRS 7 To each is given the manifestation of the Spirit for the common good. NIV 7 Now to each one the manifestation of the Spirit is given for the common good. NRS 8 To one is given through the Spirit the utterance of wisdom, and to another the utterance of knowledge according to the same Spirit, NIV 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, NRS 9 to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healing by the one Spirit, NIV 9 to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healing by that one Spirit, NRS 10 to another the working of miracles, to another prophecy, to another the discernment of spirits, to another various kinds of tongues, to another the interpretation of tongues. NIV 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. NRS 11 All these are activated by one and the same Spirit, who allots to each one individually just as the Spirit chooses. NIV 11 All these are the work of one and the same Spirit, and he gives them to each one, just as he determines. NRS 12 For just as the body is one and has many members, and all the members of the body, though many, are one body, so it is with Christ. NIV 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. NRS 13 For in the one Spirit we were all baptized into one body—Jews or Greeks, slaves or free—and we were all made to drink of one Spirit. NIV 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. NRS 14 Indeed, the body does not consist of one member but of many. NIV 14 Now the body is not made up of one part but of many. NRS 15 If the foot would say, "Because I am not a hand, I do not belong to the body," that would not make it any less a part of the body. NIV 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. NRS 16 And if the ear would say, "Because I am not an eye, I do not belong to the body," that would not make it any less a part of the body. NIV 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. NRS 17 If the whole body were an eye, where would the hearing be? If the whole body were hearing, where would the sense of smell be? NIV 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? NRS 18 But as it is, God arranged the members in the body, each one of them, as he chose. NIV 18 But in fact God has arranged the parts in the body, every one of them, just as he wanted them to be. NRS 19 If all were a single member, where would the body be? NIV 19 If they were all one part, where would the body be? NRS 20 As it is, there are many members, yet one body. NIV 20 As it is, there are many parts, but one body. NRS 21 The eye cannot say to the hand, "I have no need of you," nor again the head to the feet, "I have no need of you." NIV 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!" NRS 22 On the contrary, the members of the body that seem to be weaker are indispensable, NIV 22 On the contrary, those parts of the body that seem to be weaker are indispensable, NRS 23 and those members of the body that we think less honorable we clothe with greater honor, and our less respectable members are treated with greater respect; NIV 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, NRS 24 whereas our more respectable members do not need this. But God has so arranged the body, giving the greater honor to the inferior member, NIV 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, NRS 25 that there may be no dissension within the body, but the members may have the same care for one another. NIV 25 so that there should be no division in the body, but that its parts should have equal concern for each other. NRS 26 If one member suffers, all suffer together with it; if one member is honored, all rejoice together with it. NIV 26 If one part suffers, every part suffers with it; if one part is honored, every part rejoices with it. NRS 27 Now you are the body of Christ and individually members of it. NIV 27 Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it. NRS 28 And God has appointed in the church first apostles, second prophets, third teachers; then deeds of power, then gifts of healing, forms of assistance, forms of leadership, various kinds of tongues. NIV 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. NRS 29 Are all apostles? Are all prophets? Are all teachers? Do all work miracles? NIV 29 Are all apostles? Are all prophets? Are all teachers? Do all work miracles? NRS 30 Do all possess gifts of healing? Do all speak in tongues? Do all interpret? NIV 30 Do all have gifts of healing? Do all speak in tongues ? Do all interpret? NRS 31 But strive for the greater gifts. And I will show you a still more excellent way. NIV 31 But eagerly desire the greater gifts. And now I will show you the most excellent way.
