1 Corinthians 12:12-25

NAS 12 For even as the body is one and yet has many members, and all the members of the body, though they are many, are one body, so also is 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. NAS 13 For by one Spirit we were all baptized into one body, whether Jews or Greeks, whether 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. NAS 14 For the body is not one member, but many. NIV 14 Now the body is not made up of one part but of many. NAS 15 If the foot says, "Because I am not a hand, I am not a part of the body," it is not for this reason any the 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. NAS 16 And if the ear says, "Because I am not an eye, I am not a part of the body," it is not for this reason any the 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. NAS 17 If the whole body were an eye, where would the hearing be? If the whole 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? NAS 18 But now God has placed the members, each one of them, in the body, just as He desired. NIV 18 But in fact God has arranged the parts in the body, every one of them, just as he wanted them to be. NAS 19 If they were all one member, where would the body be? NIV 19 If they were all one part, where would the body be? NAS 20 But now there are many members, but one body. NIV 20 As it is, there are many parts, but one body. NAS 21 And the eye cannot say to the hand, "I have no need of you"; or 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!" NAS 22 On the contrary, it is much truer that the members of the body which seem to be weaker are necessary; NIV 22 On the contrary, those parts of the body that seem to be weaker are indispensable, NAS 23 and those members of the body which we deem less honorable, on these we bestow more abundant honor, and our less presentable members become much more presentable, 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, NAS 24 whereas our more presentable members have no need of it. But God has so composed the body, giving more abundant honor to that member which lacked, 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, NAS 25 so that there may be no division 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.
