1 Corinthians 3:1-10

RSV 1 But I, brethren, could not address you as spiritual men, but as men of the flesh, as babes in Christ. NIV 1 Brothers, I could not address you as spiritual but as worldly--mere infants in Christ. RSV 2 I fed you with milk, not solid food; for you were not ready for it; and even yet you are not ready, NIV 2 I gave you milk, not solid food, for you were not yet ready for it. Indeed, you are still not ready. RSV 3 for you are still of the flesh. For while there is jealousy and strife among you, are you not of the flesh, and behaving like ordinary men? NIV 3 You are still worldly. For since there is jealousy and quarreling among you, are you not worldly? Are you not acting like mere men? RSV 4 For when one says, "I belong to Paul," and another, "I belong to Apol'los," are you not merely men? NIV 4 For when one says, "I follow Paul," and another, "I follow Apollos," are you not mere men? RSV 5 What then is Apol'los? What is Paul? Servants through whom you believed, as the Lord assigned to each. NIV 5 What, after all, is Apollos? And what is Paul? Only servants, through whom you came to believe--as the Lord has assigned to each his task. RSV 6 I planted, Apol'los watered, but God gave the growth. NIV 6 I planted the seed, Apollos watered it, but God made it grow. RSV 7 So neither he who plants nor he who waters is anything, but only God who gives the growth. NIV 7 So neither he who plants nor he who waters is anything, but only God, who makes things grow. RSV 8 He who plants and he who waters are equal, and each shall receive his wages according to his labor. NIV 8 The man who plants and the man who waters have one purpose, and each will be rewarded according to his own labor. RSV 9 For we are God's fellow workers; you are God's field, God's building. NIV 9 For we are God's fellow workers; you are God's field, God's building. RSV 10 According to the grace of God given to me, like a skilled master builder I laid a foundation, and another man is building upon it. Let each man take care how he builds upon it. NIV 10 By the grace God has given me, I laid a foundation as an expert builder, and someone else is building on it. But each one should be careful how he builds.
