1 Corinthians 12:12-31

CEB 12 Christ is just like the human body—a body is a unit and has many parts; and all the parts of the body are one body, even though there are many. 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. CEB 13 We were all baptized by one Spirit into one body, whether Jew or Greek, or slave or free, and we all were given one Spirit to drink. 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. CEB 14 Certainly the body isn't one part but many. NRS 14 Indeed, the body does not consist of one member but of many. CEB 15 If the foot says, "I'm not part of the body because I'm not a hand," does that mean it's not part of the body? 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. CEB 16 If the ear says, "I'm not part of the body because I'm not an eye," does that mean it's not 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. CEB 17 If the whole body were an eye, what would happen to the hearing? And if the whole body were an ear, what would happen to the sense of smell? 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? CEB 18 But as it is, God has placed each one of the parts in the body just like he wanted. NRS 18 But as it is, God arranged the members in the body, each one of them, as he chose. CEB 19 If all were one and the same body part, what would happen to the body? NRS 19 If all were a single member, where would the body be? CEB 20 But as it is, there are many parts but one body. NRS 20 As it is, there are many members, yet one body. CEB 21 So the eye can't say to the hand, "I don't need you," or in turn, the head can't say to the feet, "I don't need you." 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." CEB 22 Instead, the parts of the body that people think are the weakest are the most necessary. NRS 22 On the contrary, the members of the body that seem to be weaker are indispensable, CEB 23 The parts of the body that we think are less honorable are the ones we honor the most. The private parts of our body that aren't presentable are the ones that are given the most dignity. 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; CEB 24 The parts of our body that are presentable don't need this. But God has put the body together, giving greater honor to the part with less honor 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, CEB 25 so that there won't be division in the body and so the parts might have mutual concern for each other. NRS 25 that there may be no dissension within the body, but the members may have the same care for one another. CEB 26 If one part suffers, all the parts suffer with it; if one part gets the glory, all the parts celebrate with it. NRS 26 If one member suffers, all suffer together with it; if one member is honored, all rejoice together with it. CEB 27 You are the body of Christ and parts of each other. NRS 27 Now you are the body of Christ and individually members of it. CEB 28 In the church, God has appointed first apostles, second prophets, third teachers, then miracles, then gifts of healing, the ability to help others, leadership skills, different kinds of tongues. 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. CEB 29 All aren't apostles, are they? All aren't prophets, are they? All aren't teachers, are they? All don't perform miracles, do they? NRS 29 Are all apostles? Are all prophets? Are all teachers? Do all work miracles? CEB 30 All don't have gifts of healing, do they? All don't speak in different tongues, do they? All don't interpret, do they? NRS 30 Do all possess gifts of healing? Do all speak in tongues? Do all interpret? CEB 31 Use your ambition to try to get the greater gifts. And I'm going to show you an even better way. NRS 31 But strive for the greater gifts. And I will show you a still more excellent way.
