1 Corinthians 12

RSV 1 Now concerning spiritual gifts, brethren, I do not want you to be uninformed. NIV 1 Now about spiritual gifts, brothers, I do not want you to be ignorant. RSV 2 You know that when you were heathen, you were led astray to dumb idols, however you may have been moved. NIV 2 You know that when you were pagans, somehow or other you were influenced and led astray to mute idols. RSV 3 Therefore I want you to understand that no one speaking by the Spirit of God ever says "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. RSV 4 Now there are varieties of gifts, but the same Spirit; NIV 4 There are different kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit. RSV 5 and there are varieties of service, but the same Lord; NIV 5 There are different kinds of service, but the same Lord. RSV 6 and there are varieties of working, but it is the same God who inspires them all in every one. NIV 6 There are different kinds of working, but the same God works all of them in all men. RSV 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. RSV 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, RSV 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, RSV 10 to another the working of miracles, to another prophecy, to another the ability to distinguish between 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. RSV 11 All these are inspired by one and the same Spirit, who apportions to each one individually as he wills. NIV 11 All these are the work of one and the same Spirit, and he gives them to each one, just as he determines. RSV 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. RSV 13 For by one Spirit we were all baptized into one body--Jews or Greeks, slaves or free--and all were 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. RSV 14 For 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. RSV 15 If the foot should 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. RSV 16 And if the ear should 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. RSV 17 If the whole body were an eye, where would be the hearing? If the whole body were an ear, where would be the sense of smell? 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? RSV 18 But as it is, God arranged the organs 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. RSV 19 If all were a single organ, where would the body be? NIV 19 If they were all one part, where would the body be? RSV 20 As it is, there are many parts, yet one body. NIV 20 As it is, there are many parts, but one body. RSV 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!" RSV 22 On the contrary, the parts of the body which seem to be weaker are indispensable, NIV 22 On the contrary, those parts of the body that seem to be weaker are indispensable, RSV 23 and those parts of the body which we think less honorable we invest with the greater honor, and our unpresentable parts are treated with greater modesty, 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, RSV 24 which our more presentable parts do not require. But God has so composed the body, giving the greater honor to the inferior part, 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, RSV 25 that there may be no discord in the body, but that 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. RSV 26 If one member suffers, all suffer together; if one member is honored, all rejoice together. NIV 26 If one part suffers, every part suffers with it; if one part is honored, every part rejoices with it. RSV 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. RSV 28 And God has appointed in the church first apostles, second prophets, third teachers, then workers of miracles, then healers, helpers, administrators, speakers in 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. RSV 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? RSV 30 Do all possess gifts of healing? Do all speak with tongues? Do all interpret? NIV 30 Do all have gifts of healing? Do all speak in tongues ? Do all interpret? RSV 31 But earnestly desire the higher 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.
